GO RED, Week 2! Take Care of You!

Every Friday this month is Go Red. It's to bring attention to women's heart health. Did you know that worldwide 8.6 million women die of heart disease each year? 8 million women, in the US, are currently living with heart disease.  We need to take care of ourselves, Ladies!! We spend a lot of time taking care of everyone else around us, that we tend to neglect ourselves.  Take some time for yourself. Take a walk. Eat an apple. Read a book. Know your risk factors for heart disease.  Just TAKE CARE OF YOU!!  I promise, the world won't fall apart if you take a little time for YOU! If you don't love yourself enough to take care of you, how can you expect anyone else to?

Gray sweater vest: PS Too

Any big plans for the weekend? Tomorrow, I plan to sleep late!! And hopefully, spend some time with Lise. Our kids are dying to get together, too!!  And in case I haven't mentioned it, her husband is my new best friend!! He helped me out this week in a big way and I really appreciate it!!

  1. I love, LOVE your layering here! You look beautiful in red.

    So an apple...what about Girl Scout cookies? Do they count? :)

  2. an apple either before or after the cookie and maybe it'll negate it! LOL

  3. I really like the combo of gray and red here
    Hope you and Lise can get together and have some fun

  4. red is your color and I almost bought that necklace this week!! haha! Have fun tomorrow!

  5. I have taken your lecture to heart. Seriously. A number of years ago when I was a single mother a physician drilled this in to me: if YOU don't take care of yourself, who will care for these children? That certainly put things into perspective.

  6. Great necklace! You have some nice jewelry. I really like your jeans - very hip!
    Lise, you need to post some "what I wear to care for Ida pictures"!

  7. Thanks for your Friday reminders, Joy. That is why I am on this diet...because I am concerned about my heart!! My doctor finally got my attention...Every time my stomach growls, I tell myself to remember long life!! Your post helps me to hang in there!

  8. Blush and Bashful!!! HA HA
    Maybe there are some lipsticks out there in those colors!
