So I’ve mentioned before that my husband coaches football – so it’s pretty natural for me to want to scoop up anything in his colors or adorning his mascot. When a friend contacted me about these amazing collegiate football bracelets, I knew I’d be interested! When my bracelet came in the mail – I was shocked and utterly impressed how much detail could be possible on one piece of jewelry. The material used to make the bracelet is beautiful. It was perfect to complete my game day look.

 

Camila’s bracelets are 100% handmade – therefore each piece is truly unique and one of a kind!

 

My bracelet is a part of the “Go Tarheels Collection” – make sure to check to see if you can get a bracelet for your favorite team!

Join me in tuning into any major network tonight (ABC, NBC, FOX, CBS) at 8pm ET to watch the annual television event – Stand Up 2 Cancer. This is a wonderful event to raise funds for cancer research. According to their website: Stand Up To Cancer is a groundbreaking initiative created to accelerate innovative cancer research that will get new therapies to patients quickly and save lives now.

 

This is where the end of cancer begins.

 

Tonight I am standing up for a dear friend of mine, Erin Turner. Erin passed away in March of this year after a tremendous 6 year battle with Cancer. Her strength was inspiring and her story motivated others. We may have spent the majority of our friendship living in different time zones – but I admired from a distance Erin’s fight every single day.

 

I will also be standing up to many others in current battles – pardon my language, but keep kicking Cancer’s ass.

 

 

 

I wanted to share my first class at Republic of Yoga in Cary, NC with all of my readers. It is in the quaint neighborhood of Stone Creek Village. My first impression when I walked through the door was how sweet their owner Nicole was and how welcoming she made every single attendee. Yoga can be extremely intimidating. Especially for someone like me that can barely touch my toes! (darn hamstrings…) But this environment was anything but. It appeared to me all attendees were from different levels and backgrounds of Yoga, so my inexperience did not matter nor stick out.

I attended a Sunday morning Gentle class. It was the perfect start to the day. It was everything the class description lead me to believe. Calm and soothing. The studio was clean and pretty in a very simple and modern way. I wanted to hang out there all afternoon! One class that caught my eye on the schedule was the restorative class on Tuesday nights. I train in various ways. Running, weight lifting, barre classes and occasional yoga and/or pilates classes, so the thought of one night a week having some time to stretch and help my body recover from the week sounds wonderful. I look forward to checking it out.

I’m a big fan of promoting GREAT things going on in my area. At the top of that is promoting great charities. Not only are events FUN, they always help someone deserving. It’s the best way to spend a weekend if you ask me….

 

So when the folks at “Not So Normal 5K” reached out asking me to post their event, I couldn’t wait. And I also look forward to attending!

 

The Not So Normal 5K + Weekend, presented by Mom in Chapel Hill, is a three-day celebration of community and philanthropy – with a little music and exercise thrown in! Headlined by the nearly 5K race/walk Sunday morning and the Frankie Ballard Live Concert Presented by 94.7 QDR and The Not So Normal 5K + Weekend Sunday night, guests can expect the unexpected. Concepted and brought to life by founder and fellow blogger Jay Radford, the inaugural events will take place Sept. 12-14, 2014 in Carrboro and Chapel Hill, North Carolina, with funds benefiting local nonprofits. It’s anything but average! A full weekend of fundraising for local nonprofits, enjoying time in your community and a great 5k.
