Your guide to changing lives this holiday season.


Each year, we get gifts we don't really need. Some we don't even want. America is about to spend another $450 billion to celebrate the holidays - that's enough to solve the water crisis several times over. People all over the world are giving up the gifts this year to give clean water to people in need.

Join the movement and launch your campaign today.



 Give up the gifts, give people clean water and start changing lives.

If you don't want to start your own campaign - you can just give me a great gift by donating to MINE! (and feel free to direct other people there too!).. send them this link: http://mycharitywater.org/liza

I'll take it!

Ok for some reason I'm having a wonderful day! I woke up for a "fast walk" with my friend Kristen and my tires showed warning signs (I have a smart car apparently). That didn't get me down! We had our walk, then I went to Starbucks. I got my skinny vanilla latte and with a smile from everyone! Then I went to the Firestone and got some air in the tires. The guy was SO nice, said the air was as free as the air you breathe---ok I'll take it! Got to work only five minutes late, and I'm in the best mood! Who knows why but I'll take it! LOL.

Just thought I'd share that.
Maybe Regina is to blame?

Eet
It's like forgetting the words to your favorite song
You can't believe it
You were always singing along
It was so easy and the words so sweet
You can't remember
You try to feel the beat
Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet, eet, eet, eet
Eeeeeeeeeeeeeteeet, eet, eet, eet
You spent half of your life trying to fall behind
You're using your headphones to drown out your mind
It was so easy, and the words so sweet
You can't remember
You try to move your feet
Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet, eet, eet, eet
Eeeeeeeeeeeeeteeet, eet, eet, eet
Someone's deciding whether or not to steal
He opens the window just to feel the chill
He hears that outside a small boy just starting to cry
'Cause it's his turn but his brother won't let him try
It's like forgetting the words to your favorite song
You can't believe it
You were always singing along
It was so easy and the words so sweet
You can't remember
You try to move your feet
It was so easy and the words so sweet
You can't remember, you try to feel the beat

Exercise Doesn't = Weight Loss??!!

Morning my little fabulous own-its out there in blog-land. I hope this Thursday finds you well! My Thursday has been rough from the start.. Nobody deserves to wake up to Drilling and hammering in the Early AM!! NO ONE I tell you!

(Inhale.. Exhale)...

Anyhizzle, despite the 234 things that went WRONG this morning (all before 10 AM).. I found this little gem, this little glimmer of hope to brighten my day..
I stole this video from My sister-in-law's Blog - Could it be true?? Watch and give your opinion. Afterall, in MY book - YOUR opinion is the only one that matters!
