Recently I've been considering a new vaction - a trip to Krakow and Medjugorje. I'm really excited about this possibility. I have been so fortunate that I've been able to travel so much. Here is a map of some of the places I've been. Yellow is where I've been and Green is where I'd like to go!
I was accepted to be a part of the Maurices Main Street Model Search! WOO! I am so excited about this opportunity because it's for a good cause.
As you may know, 14 years ago my dad died of Colon Cancer and every 5 years I have to get screened myself. According to a study by the American Cancer Society, removing non-cancerous polyps during colonoscopies resulted in 53% fewer deaths than would be expected from a group similar in race, age, and gender in the general population. In fact, having colonoscopies and removing the polyps was pretty much the same as not ever having any polyps at all! You can read more about Colon Cancer on the American Cancer Society's website here.

I think they would also be nice to use for a baptism or a 1st communion.
Well, since then, a lot of friends and family have wanted to know how to make them. Here's how!

It's a cookie bouquet from Cookies By Design. He was thrilled and this pic is hilarious - totally worth it!
