Two hours...

until I meet with Dr. Ainsworth at London Regional Cancer Program (LRCP) to discuss the results of my genetic testing. Ok, realistically it's probably closer to three hours including the time I'll be stuck in an office waiting for him to saunter in, but who is counting. Other than me.

For those of you who don't remember, I went to see Dr. Ainsworth back on April 28, 2009 to provide him with the incidence of cancer in my extended family AND about 1/2 of the total blood volume in my body, so they could run tests.

The anticipation around this has been building for so long, I'm actually really excited for the answer.

I'll try to update my blog as soon as I get back from London.
Wish me luck!!

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-
