Benefit Fashion Show

Everyone that knows me, knows that I am completely obsessed with Halloween.
I usually plan my outfit at least a couple months in advance, and spend a few weeks sewing and gluing and crafting until it is just perfect.
This year was no different, however, the two nights leading up to the main event weren't spent preparing.
This year, I was fortunate enough to have been asked to be a model/spokesperson at a Breast Cancer benefit show near my hometown.
I'll spare you the video of me strutting about showing off my sweet model walk (Read: I'll spare myself the embarrassment). I would like to post the little talk I gave after though. I'll warn you in advance that it is a few minutes long. Get comfy.

The show was an interesting opportunity to meet other survivors (there were 5 other models in addition to me) and share stories. Although it did cramp up my Halloween plans a little, it was well worth it.

Here ya go-




Just for giggles, I'm adding some pictures from Halloween. We were lucky enough to spend the evening with our friend Caitlin, her sisters Bonnie and Lindsay... and a bunch of their friends at a bar in Pontiac. Woooooooooo.
I'll give 1$ and my respect to the first person who can correctly identify who Adam and I are dressed as.







OHHHHHHH... and I also made Halloween cupcakes-

Well done on the fundraiser. Thanks for sharing your story. Keep telling it. We need to hear it. They need to hear it.

See you guys in December!

P.S. I was going to guess John and Abigail Adams but you'd have to trade wigs...
