Go Pink with Mike

Available at your public library.

Nancy G. Brinker promised her dying sister, Susan G. Komen, she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer forever. In 1982, that promise became Susan G. Komen for the Cure, which is now the world’s largest breast cancer organization and the largest source of nonprofit funds dedicated to the fight against breast […]

Fib, Fab and (Finally) 40!

March 2011.

Can you believe it?  No, not my nauseating use of alliteration, but the fact that I’ve been blogging away for a year now about turning 40. It wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be. I think my 39th year broke me in. If you’ve followed my journey this past year, then you know I’ve […]

My Autobiography in Books

My idea of a perfect day...

You are what you read. Never has this rang so true after reading William Kuhn’s Reading Jackie: Her Autobiography in Books (Nan A. Talese, 2010). I remember John Kennedy, Jr., giving a statement to the media shortly after his mother’s death. It struck me as odd at the time: “My mother died surrounded by her […]

Fit, Fab and (Almost!) 40


It’s been a while, but I’m still here.  Still in the game.  But  I’m struggling again. I started wagon chasing (that’s when you fall of the wagon and then run like hell trying to hop back on) after spending the MLK weekend with family in North Carolina. Aunt Harriet’s spaghetti sauce with Italian sausage is too […]

Fit, Fab, and (Not Quite) 40 – Pt. 10

Hair is a little longer, body is a little slimmer.

Thanksgiving could have been a disaster, but I survived thanks to the “rotisserie-style” cycle class at Ultimate Fitness on Thanksgiving morning. I started off my turkey day burning about 450 calories, how ’bout you? I’m finally closing in on 30 lbs! I’m dropping weight a little faster these days, thanks to my Weight Watchers cookbooks. Okay, so […]

Fit, Fab, and (Not Quite) 40 – Pt. 9

Kathy - running like a girl!

It’s getting down to the wire. Only five more months until my 40th birthday. Crunch time. As you know, I’ve had my ups and downs through this process. Something I constantly have to do is keep finding new things (or people) to motivate me. Here’s a few I’d like to share…     – A good friend […]

Scrappin’ Retreats

Being creative feels so good!

Seven years ago a co-worker gave me a gift certificate to an “Intro to Scrapbooking” class. She thought, since I had a new baby, scrapbooking might be something I’d enjoy.  She had no idea.   My first page was of our first family vacation with our new son.  We went to Ft. Morgan, AL, and rented a […]
