Remy and Lacy need your Help!


Remy and Lacy asked me to remind everyone to purchase their tickets or donate to Fashion For Paws. Fashion for Paws® (F4P) benefits the Washington Humane Society and infuses the nation’s capital with cutting edge high fashion, drawing an extraordinary crowd of VIP’s, fashion and animals lovers alike. The event is being held March 28th at the Italian Embassy. In order for Remy and Lacy to walk on the Catwalk we need to raise $3000. We can raise the money through donations on our sponsorship page as well as through tickets purchased on our sponsorship page. Remember every dollar helps!

Fitness Together

It is hard to believe I have been working out with my personal trainer, Joselle Gacusan, at Fitness Together for a month! Typically a month into a fitness program I am ready to hang up my sneakers and crawl back into bed, however the fun workouts Joselle designs specifically for my personal goals and her encouragement have me looking forward to the next workout.

Fitness Together is located 300 N. Washington St in Alexandria, VA. Their moto is 1 Client, 1 Trainer, 1 Goal. What a great concept, each session is conducted in your own room, so there is no waiting for equipment or self conscious moments.

After only a month I have more energy, my clothes are fitting better, my posture is improving and I am seeing results! I am so happy to have Fitness Together on my side because the Mrs. Virginia swimsuit competition is right around the corner.

Shelter Dogs go to the Movies


On Saturday January 31, I attended "Shelter Dogs go to the Movies" to benefit the Animal Welfare League of Arlington. The shelter partnered with Regal Cinemas at the Ballston Mall to hold this event in conjunction with the movie "Hotel for Dogs." Barkley Square Bakery, Karing by Kristina and Dogtopia were on hand to give movie goers dog treats to bring home as well as information on Pet Care.
