Help our Relay for Life team!

This is my 5th year participating in the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life.

Two years ago I was the top fundraiser for our Relay and last year I was second, but I raised over $2500, which was a personal best for me.

I’m well on my way now, but sitting just over $400, so I need your help.

Right now, I have two options to enlist your help.

Option #1 – Go straight to my page and make a donation http://main.acsevents.org/goto/beamerjktx

Option #2 – Purchase some cute jewelry from Origami Owl and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to our team.  http://www.stephaniekusy.origamiowl.com/parties/JenniferKress198228/how-to-build.ashx
The online party is only open until Friday, February 28th at 11:59 pm, so get your order in today.

Thank you in advance.

New kind of busy

Another football season is here and in addition to Haley’s soccer schedule, we will also be adding 7th grade volleyball to the mix.  I just thought we have been busy the past few years, but now we are going to kick it up a notch.

I’m disappointed that I will be losing my zumba class because I just won’t be able to make it.  I have grown to love Zumba every week.  I started going as soon as soccer season ended in May and tried to go 3 to 4 times a week.  The past month, I’ve been lucky if I can get there twice a week.  This week I won’t make it at all and I’m sure that’s my new normal with school starting on Monday.

I purchased a FitBit Flex in June and love, love, love it.  It is an activity tracker and also tracks your sleep patterns.  It has caused me to be aware of my activity levels.  My coworker also bought one and you will find us during the day running in place in our offices to get our step counts up.  We are constantly going back and forth asking, “how many steps do you have?”  I don’t like to be behind, so I’m glad that I have her to push me to do better.

I have agreed to be on my local American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life Accounting Committee again for the upcoming year and we have our first meeting today.  I’m excited to do this again even though I have stepped down from being my team’s captain, but I think I’ve left it in good hands.

I hope everyone has a wonderful football season!!
