ban the tan!

Are there any 30 Rock lovers out there?

It is one of my favorite shows on television.

If you are not familiar with the show-Jane Krakowski plays Jenna Marone, the fun, witty, blonde and bubbly actress who is a friend and confidant to Liz Lemon (Tina Fey).

So what is even better than a darling actress who makes me laugh every week?
When that same person supports a good cause!

For every person who watches this video, Jergens will donate $1 to the Skin Cancer Foundation in NYC.  Pretty awesome, eh?!

Pass it on!

It's just a box of rain
I don't know who put it there
Believe it if you need it
or leave it if you dare
But it's just a box of rain
or a ribbon for your hair
Such a long long time to be gone 
and a short time to be there

I've got the Tuesday blues

quick trip

Michigan was a great time. Mom and I ventured around Ann Arbor Friday evening, indulging in a delicious dinner at the Prickly Pear and a sweet treat afterward at Chocolate House ( as you can see, haha).

 There are a lot of artsy shops on Main Street overflowing with neat finds such as; quoted paintings, handblown jewelry, wood boxes, freshwater pearls, etc. and it was fun to pop in and out.  If you are ever in AA, you must check them out.

  Saturday morning we got to see JSC- finally! After three weeks, his camp at U of Michigan ended and we got to sit in on one of his classes with the head of the musical theatre program. It was exciting to see what he had been up to! 

What a fun little day-and-a-half trip to Michigan!
