Help out a good cause!

Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend so far!

The Extraordinary Women's Conference was amazing and can't wait to share more about it with you tomorrow and along with some pictures.

Meanwhile, I wanted to share with you about something that's going on. Please stop by Adrienne's blog. She has an amazing and beautiful story and an even more beautiful son named Owen. Well, on March 12th she left a post sharing about a gold party she was going to be attending. So please look for that and read up. If anyone knows how to directly link to a particular post, please let me know. Anyhow, her friend is looking to adopt and Adrienne's son Owen is adopted as well, and Adrienne and her husband are looking to adopt a sibling for Owen. It's been a very hard and painful process for them, and again, read up on their blog and you'll be amazed by their story. You will be able to help both of these family in earning funds to allow for adoption by collecting any gold that you might have, and Adrienne explains it further on her blog. But it doesn't matter what condition it's in, if it's not being used, please send it. And you can contact me as to where to send it because Adrienne sent me her address. I have collected my pieces and hope you will too, to help these two families. Both families are being helped financially by this party. The party is being held this coming Thursday, so the pieces need to be in by then. So, again, please go by her blog and read up more on this! Thank you so much!

Also, I have officially stepped into the Twilight madness and I can't put the book down.... this isn't good, I need to get stuff done, haha!!!! But it's so wonderful!!!!!! Think I might need to lay by the pool and get some reading done today, stuff can wait, lol!!!! Can't miss out on this gorgeous Florida day!!! :o) Have a great Sunday!!!

I love Adrienne's blog - her story is amazing. I hadn't been by her blog in a little bit, so I'm glad you posted this.

Oh, by the way, to link to a particular post, you have to click on the title of the post (for instance, you would click on your title "Help out a good cause!"), and then that will give you the permalink in the address bar. Highlight that and then link like you normally do. Does this make sense?

Twilight...I keep hearing so much about it, but I haven't jumped on the bandwagon...YET. I know that my family probably won't see me for a couple of days if I ever start.

I just love Adrienne's blog and think she is just the sweetest!!!
How sweet of you to post about it too!! *if you click on the title of the post you are wanting to link, and let blogger bring up that post specifically (so your computer shows her post and then comments to follow), then highlight all that info in the address bar and paste it!*

Lauren,

You have such a beautiful heart. Thank you so much for sharing our journey with your friends and helping us in raising money to adopt another child. Thank you for sending your gold to me!!! We truly appreciate it :o).
