Red Cross Raises Awareness about World AIDS Day

The American Red Cross Heartland Chapter is asking for your help in raising awareness about the 21st Annual World Aids Day that is held on Dec. 1st. World AIDS Day is an internationally recognized day that focuses on educating the world on HIV/AIDS transmission and prevention.

The Red Cross offers a variety of free HIV/AIDS programs year round that teach the difference between HIV and AIDS, and disease transmission, prevention and related social issues. The free classes include: Basic HIV education, HIV: Just the Facts, Prevention Starts with You: A Guide to the Nine Most Common Sexually Transmitted Infections, HIV and Healthy Relationships and ACT Smart HIV/AIDS Education Curriculum.

Walter Brooks, HIV/AIDS Prevention Coordinator for the Heartland Chapter, has educated about 1,000 Iowa and Nebraska teens and adults in middle schools, high schools, cosmetology schools and prisons in the past two months on the fundamentals of HIV.

Brooks will be hosting a Red Cross booth at the University of Nebraska at Omaha’s World AIDS Day event today from 10:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. to promote the Heartland Chapter’s free HIV/AIDS classes.

For more information on the free Red Cross HIV/AIDS programs, please contact Walter Brooks at (402) 343-7774.

hard candy heart attack

so last weekend when i was strolling through wally world i came across an amazing discovery!
walmart carry's hard candy cosmetics now!!
i know right?
in an almost panic, i dropped the basket i was carrying, and looked at every last item.
i seriously was so excited i couldnt hardly stand it.
i wanted to buy everything...but came to the realization that i already have boxes of make up (literally, left over pieces of lancome gratis-under my bed) at home.
so i picked a few pieces to try out.
liquorish walk the line liquid liner

pinup blush crush baked blush

american girl plumping serum gloss

and light sheer envy tinted moisturizer

i love them all so far!
the tinted moisturiser is a nice coverage and has spf 15!
the lip serum is a nice sting- not too burny like some plumpers are...and it smells yummy.
the liquid liner is great- but seems to take longer than my lancome liners to you have to be patient.
and the blush is awesome. can be used wet or dry. it has a nice bronzer in it...and i heart that.
wallyworld had a nice selection of bold colored shadows, liners, lipsticks,polishes, etc.
i was disappointed that they didnt have more foundation choices or any powders to choose from...but its a good start for walmart.
everything was under $10 which is nice for us cosmetic junkies and they had about a 100 choices of glosses which is also always good for the girl who already has 99 glosses in her purse.
needless to say i know next time i go to wallyworld i will swing by the cosmetic aisles and pick up some new shadows and lipsticks!
i also just noticed you can buy all of these things online here...and shipping is only .97 on beauty items!
score! now we dont even have to go to walmart if we dont want to!

eclipsed by glory

i love this song.
its amazing how some songs just speak volumes to you.
this song is powerful to me because it reminds me of what i was taught as a child. its amazing what we sometimes forget as we 'grow up', but how comforting a tiny reminder can be.

...i want to be eclipsed by glory.

wtf? (where's is the funding)

check this out friends: november is lung cancer awareness month.
my friend jennifer started this group called "WTF" ((Where's the Funding) for Lung Cancer) in honor of her brave (non-smoking) mama who is battling stage IV lung cancer that is inoperable and at this time incurable.
help us spread the word- lung cancer is the number one cancer killer in the u.s. and these fighters deserve the funding for a cure!!!

here is what jennifer has to say:

"WTF" (Where's the Funding) for Lung Cancer?

Yeah, you get the double-entrendre. Some may find it a bit crude. I find it necessary to get peoples' attention - attention to THE #1 cancer killer in the U.S AND the most under-funded. Why? Well, the stigma of smoking.

My mom, Leslie Lehrman, who is 65 years-old and a life-long non-smoker, has stage IV lung cancer - inoperable, incurable. Yes, that's right, you DO NOT have to smoke to get lung cancer. Many people do NOT know this. And more and more people who have never smoked are being diagnosed and dying of lung cancer.

I will not let my mom die without having told her story and without making a difference.

It's time to take the stigma OUT of lung cancer - smokers or not - and get lung cancer the attention and funding it deserves.
Until then, I will continue to loudly scream, "WTF" for Lung Cancer?"

Wanna scream together?
Join my Facebook group: "WTF" (Where's the Funding) for Lung Cancer?

blogs of the past

every once in a while i look back at my old blogs from the same month or day but back a few years.
its always interesting to see what i was up to.
last year i was overwhelmed working two full time jobs.

and two years ago this month we had tons of weddings to attend and i went on kayla's birthday hayrack ride and almost died because of my horrid allergies.

but my favorite was from 2006...from right before our wedding.

love him.
