Glamour Contest

**NEE NEE NEWS: Grandma is still in pain. We are still praying that her swelling goes down and that surgery will take place later this week. We figured out a way to wheel her wheelchair into our bathroom (removing a leg rest) so that has been a huge help.**

One of the ways, I "redeemed" Christi's frequent flying miles after she died was by purchasing magazines for the two Ronald McDonald Houses we lived in, and also by ordering some subscriptions for family and Eric. For myself, I ordered "Glamour" magazine - a nice break of "light and fluffy" reading for a change. (Shhh, don't tell my Professors!) Each month, they featured a unique place someone took their magazine. Due to weight restrictions, I could only take the cover of the magazine (What a hoot!) but here are the three photos I entered in their contest. Since my subscription will run out in October, I hope someone lets me know if one is ever published. It was fun!

I don't subscribe to the magazine, but I'll be sure to take a peak at the issues while waiting on line in the supermarket (hee hee). :o)

You definitely deserve to win and you have my vote for sure. I'm already planning my own trip to Alaska (smile). Thanks, Shayla!

Lots of love!

So sorry to hear that Grandma is still in pain. I hope she is able to have her surgery soon and she will remain in my prayers.

LOL at your Glamour to Alaska and your "secret" is safe with me. My light and fluffy Grad school reading was People. :)

Love and prayers always,

Poor Nee Nee can't seem to catch a break yet. Atleast you've found an easier way of getting her into the bathroom.

I was wondering why you were holding a random Glamour magazine! lol That's a pretty cool idea of them to do. I hope yours gets published! I can't believe that a magazine weighed too much and you could only take the cover. Crazy! I bet Christi is laughing at these pictures! :)
