The past few days I’ve enjoyed some awesome eats and tasty treats… Nothing too spooky, although I’ve pinned a few fun Halloween recipes that I’d like to try!

lazy apple crisp
applesauce + avocado spinach wraps + blueberry bran muffin
uncooked apple crisp
pretty red pear
cinnamon apple coconut waffles
chilled chocolate berry cereal
chocolate cherry coconut waffles
And now, Charlie’s eats…
Let me clarify, that is not all for Charlie [haha] 😛 He went bonkers last night when I took the bone out of the bag and refused to eat his dinner. I should have known that running around hiding bones is much more fun than eating dinner [duh]!
Saturday morning Ryan and I will be participating in the ALR Walk with Us to Cure Lupus with one of my favorite DC radio stations. I was diagnosed with lupus 3 years ago this fall and despite some flare-ups, I’m still living and loving life!
A little information about the Alliance for Lupus Research as seen on the Hot 99.5 website…
Alliance for Lupus Research (ALR) The mission of the Alliance for Lupus Research (ALR) is to find better treatments and ultimately prevent and cure systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE, or lupus), a debilitating autoimmune disease, by supporting medical research. 100% of all donations received go directly to support lupus research programs because the ALR Board of Directors funds all ALR administrative and fundraising costs. Founded in 1999 and chaired by Robert Wood Johnson IV, a member of the Johnson & Johnson family, after his daughter was diagnosed with lupus, the ALR has become the largest private funder of lupus research in the world. By the end of 2012 the ALR will have committed over $80 million to innovative and aggressive lupus research.
Walk with Us to Cure Lupus is the ALR’s signature national grassroots fundraising program. Designed to increase awareness of lupus and raise crucial funds for lupus research programs, to date, ALR’s Walk with Us to Cure Lupus has raised over $22 million. Thousands of ALR supporters and volunteers will join our quest for a cure and walk in nearly 20-cities across the country this year. Please visit lupusresearch.org for additional information.
If you’re interested in participating we’d love for you to join us Saturday morning! Registration opens at 9AM and the walk begins at 10AM, starting and ending at Freedom Plaza in Washington D.C.
Question: What’s the tastiest treat you’ve recently eaten?
Question: Do you support any causes? This month is National Breast Cancer Awareness month and I am loving all the pink e.v.e.r.y.w.h.e.r.e.! My mom was diagnosed with breast cancer when I was in elementary school and I will never forget the day I came home and she was sitting at our kitchen table with some family friends. The look of fear and worry on her face was heartbreaking but I’m happy to report that she has been cancer free for many years. I know that she was very lucky that her doctors caught it in the early stages and my heart goes out to all of those who have battled the disease, know someone who is fighting, or know someone who has fought.
