We HEART Taylor Andrews

Many moons ago, I worked as an instructor for a fabulous hair school. I really loved working with the students and doing the many projects and events that came with being an instructor. After having Ry, Daddy and I decided that he would work extra hard so that I could stay at home with our little ones. So after thinking long and hard I quit working for Taylor Andrews and began my career as a Stay-at-Home-Executive. Fast forward to when Gator was born. The strain of having this little man was sometimes more than I could handle. Luckily I have a great support system and an awesome support group, with mommies and daddies who understand everything. Fast forward even more to CHD awareness week. This week is CHD awareness week... I always post stats and interesting tid bits... But, here is the best part of our week... Visiting the schools... They help raise $ for the support group by doing something so simple... Wearing Jeans and color. You see.... all the students have a very strict dress code that they follow... Black, white, cream, gray, and tan. That is it..... So we come and offer them a chance to wear jeans and red and pink and they are pretty stoked... They just fork over the five dollars to do it every day.... So Thanks for doing this for us Guys.....We truly HEART you!!!! This is the Third year that they have let us come... WOW!! Isn't that awesome.

Way to go Taylor Andrews! Such a great idea.

I forgot you said you were going to go visit and I was going to volunteer to bring Jack to show off his scars with Gator. Maybe next year.

Awesome idea. I love it. And... as I looked a little closer, I see my husband's cousin's wife in the Orem photo! YAY! I hope that she made the connection that we are a part of the same support group and paid some big money to wear color!
