Save a a cupcake!

With the help of friends and family and with the generosity of strangers I have been able to put together a last minute fundraiser for our CIBC Breast Cancer Foundation Run For The Cure! I didn't think we could do it, we had to cut some red tape but IT'S ON!!! The Bandanna Bandits will be having a
at Market Mall
on Thursday September 30th
from 11am to 2pm
to help bump up our total for the run on October 3rd! I was SO SO SO thrilled to learn this morning that we did indeed have permission and the lovely Betty Ann at Market Mall was more than accommodating. The Bandits are over the moon that we have had so much support. One of the organizers told our illustrious leader Amanda that she had never before seen a first year team pass the $10,000 mark. Well WE DID!!! And where are we going?! HIGHER!!! How exciting is that? So if you are in Saskatoon please drop by and visit us for a little cupcake goodness. Not in the area? Still want to contribute? You can also drop by my personal fundraising page. The Bandanna Bandits and our breasts thank-you for it! xox

Think Pink

I know we are not quite there yet but October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. Normally, I wear a pink ribbon, donate a few dollars and call it a day. This year is just a bit different. It hit waaay too close to home for me. My good friend Amanda has her one year Survivor Anniversary on November 18th so this is her first October in this situation and we are doing it up HUGE. We have committed our time and running shoes to the CIBC Run For The Cure on October 3rd. It's been in the planning stages for months and I actually started training for it. Me. I always believed my body would never be able to run. Like ever. But losing 50 pounds has made all the difference and I have knocked out 5km a few times this summer and am really looking forward to it on October 3rd. But we can't do it without your help! If you would like to support us please check out my page on the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation website.

Thank-you for cheering on the Bandanna Bandits!!! Let's kick cancer a$$ xox

Warm up with some Tea!

Fall brings the need to be cozy. Wool socks, big sweaters and a giant cup of tea cradled in between both hands. And what better way to enjoy those thing than with some close friends? A sweet inviation for tea with some Bo Bunny product. How long has been since we had tea? Come on over! The muffins are in the oven. xox
