Etnies Scout Kids - No More Stinky Feet!


Living in California, our toes are rarely contained.
We run around barefoot or in barely there sandals in the sun!

But now that school is starting we need a shoe that will keep our kids safe 
on the playground, during P.E. and other activities.


When we received our etnies I was skeptical that they would be any different 
from other sneaker type shoes we had tried.

But they were different! 

Lightweight, well-made and boasting a combination of breathability, 
STI Evolution Foam™ midsole and the Ortholite outsole,
 which features a patented salt-based antimicrobial that fights against fungus, bacteria and odor!


Our kids feel like their etnies make them super fast!
And I love a pair of shoes that make my kids feel confident and comfortable!


Our kids go to a charter school that requires uniforms and it's always a challenge to find a shoe 
that will look good with their preppy plaid uniforms and also their gym clothes.
Etnies are sleek and come in a variety of colors to match whatever you wear!

The black are fantastic but I'm going bold this year 
and ordering these aqua/dark grey for my kids that match their uniforms perfectly!


Etnies also sent me my own pair of mommy scouts!
I love walking without feeling like I have weights tied around my feet from clunky sneakers.
These shoes make me feel like I can fly around the block!
And bonus, with every pair of etnies you purchase, a tree is planted!


Etnies Scouts are our new favorites!
I love having one less thing to worry about for back to school shopping!

Ring My Chemo Bell!

Yesterday was monumental for me.
I got to ring the chemo bell!
 
I've been waiting for months to finish my scheduled chemo treatments and ring that bell!
And ring it I did! All around the infusion center!

As amazing as it was, I still live under a cloud of uncertainty, which clouds my joy.
Next Wednesday I have a series of scans and doctor appointments to figure out the next steps.
 
First, the breast MRI to determine how big the lumps in my breast are now.
We know they've shrunk by feel, but that's not an exact science.
 
Second I meet with the radiation doctor. He determines the course of radiation.
 
Third I receive a CT scan on my liver. This is the source of my anxiety.
If there are liver lesions that have not been killed by the chemo, I will need more.
 
Chemo is hard. I have been on a very aggressive regimen and it is painful and debilitating.
I had myself set up mentally to endure the prescribed course, and I just don't want any more chemo!!
 
I am hoping and praying that the liver lesions are gone and I will be able to go forward.
I know that radiation and surgery won't be pleasant either, but they will be the next step.
More chemo feels like I'm stuck. Like I'm not as close to being well and healthy and strong.
 
I know that my timetable is not the same as the Lord's.
I have learned before that His ways are not my ways, and His ways are best.
But I still pray that our wills meet up with no more chemo.
 
Please pray my friends. I have never met more faith and love than before this trial.
Your support has kept me going and is more important to me than you will ever know.
 
XOXO
Jaime
