Boston MS Walk is in 9 Days!!

I really can't believe how quickly 2012 has gone by!  It is already the end of March and the Boston MS Walk is next weekend!  We are busy making last minute preparations.  I've ordered green shirts for The Bean Team to wear this year and I think they will look great.  I can't wait to see them!

I got this in the mail the other day. . .
I was the 5th largest fundraiser at the Boston MS Walk in 2011.  AWESOME!!!!  I'm so proud of myself.  This year I have not raised as much money since I have to divide my fundraising between the Boston Walk and the Challenge Walk in September.  But I'm still raising as much as I can and so far I've raised $2,000!  I'm hoping to raise another $1,000 by walk day.  Please donate whatever you can.  Every little bit helps.  If all of my blog readers give a couple of dollars each it will add up to be a lot!  Just go here to make a donation.  Thanks for anything you can give.  I REALLY appreciate it and promise to mail you a really cute thank you note.

In other MS related news, I picked up the invitations for my fundraiser last night from Amanda at Sweet Tea Paperie.  Amanda, my cousin Katelyn and I are hosting an awesome party on April 12th and we plan to raise a lot of money for MS with your help.  All money raised will go toward my Challenge Walk fundraising.  I still can't believe that I'm going to walk 50 miles in 3 days!  Ha!  Of course Amanda made ADORABLE invitations!

The great news is that even if you don't live in the Boston area you can still "virtually" attend.  You can shop at www.sweetteapaperie.com anytime on Thursday, April 12th and Amanda will donate a portion of your purchase to MS.  You can shop at www.stelladot.com/katelyn anytime between now and April 12th and when you checkout make sure you enter my name as the hostess.  Katelyn will be donating to MS too!  So you can shop for a great cause!  Both sites have beautiful and fun stuff that you won't want to miss out on.  And why not buy your mother a gift for Mother's Day now???

If you have any questions feel free to ask.  If you live in the area and need directions or info about the event let me know that too!

That is all my MS related news for now.  I'm sure I'll have more to share next week. . .

Have a fabulous weekend.  Who is going to see The Hunger Games (or who has already seen it.  Haha!!)  I need a local friend to see if with. . . none of my local friends have read the books!  I'll be reading the 3rd one this weekend!
