VERY flattered!

Today I received a phone call from the American Cancer Society here in Medford.

They have offered me the position of Team Development Coordinator for Relay for Life 2010!! I will be in charge of recruiting and training participating teams, as well as the assistant organizer for the WHOLE EVENT!!

This is not a position that they offer lightly and I'm VERY flatter that they chose me to fill very big shoes!! I get to attend a weekend training conference with the whole West Coast in Reno in September... all expenses paid of course! LOVE IT!!

I'm so glad to be apart of such a great organization and I'm honored to be envolved at this high level!! YAY RELAY!!

May Week 3

I know it's HOT outside which makes this week's storage item pretty funny in my book!!


Yes... go around your house and pull out items that you no longer use and put them in your emergency preparedness!

Blankets, sheets, pillowcases, comforters, sleeping bags, etc.

I keep all my camping bedding in a rubbermaid bin in the garage that has towels, warm blankets, sheets, etc in it. I keep all my camping supplies next to my food storage so it can be grabbed along with everything else in an emergency.

If you don't have or don't want to grab stuff out of your house hit the local Goodwill or DI. Even TJ Maxx, Marshall's or Ross will have these items at REDICULOUSLY low prices!!

May week 1... sorry for my slacker-ness

OI! It's May 6th and I haven't posted yet... SORRY!!
Your assignment for May week 1 is: Prepared Foods

Spagetti O's
pork and beans

I went down to our local grocery outlet and bought 10 cans... they were 50 cents each. I bought 5 cans of spagetti o's, 2 family size cans of ravioli and 3 family size cans of chili with no beans (I'm allergic to beans)
Have fun!! I've added these to my storage shelves and already want to crack a couple open.

Yes AIM followers.... we FINALLY got a house!!

Our realtor called us this morning to give us the great news! I spent a large part of the day on the phone with our mortgage broker, realtor, inspectors, etc to get the ball rolling. We hope to close escrow before memorial day!


Here are a couple pics I snagged of the MLS site listing. We're doing a walk through tomorrow and I'll post more pictures then.

My New kitchen... SO much room and a HUGE pantry!! :)
