I know there are so many ways to donate and the Red Cross (and giving people) have gotten the word out about texting a donation, but just wanted to let you know of another option. It's always hard when donating money to know exactly where the money is going, but sometimes you just have to give out of faith.
Yele Haiti is a foundation that Wyclef Jean founded in 2005 to raise funds and build awareness for his native country. All funds raised at this time will go to the Earthquake Fund. You can donate to Yele Haiti by either texting “Yele” to 501501, which will automatically donate $5 to the Yele Haiti Earthquake Fund (it will be charged to your cell phone bill), or you can click here to DONATE.
And if you're still unsure about who/where to donate, check out this list and these tips at Charity Navigator. Although Yele Haiti is not on this list, I've done some research and feel confident in donating to them. But again, donate where you feel comfortable. Just donate.

I had the best birthday celebration(s) with my friends and family. Love getting to celebrate for a whole week! :)
It started with the 30th birthday trip for Robin, Barbie and me. We started a tradition of taking a trip each time someone turned 30...starting with Julie in Vegas. Then we celebrated Jen's birthday in San Francisco. Megan's birthday was at Hotel Zaza. And finally, it was time to celebrate ours in Puerto Vallarta!
This is where we spent most of our days...chillin' out, maxin', relaxin' all cool...
while Jen practiced her ninja skills...
tried to sleep comfortably on the "king" sized bed...
the birthday girls, Robin, Barbie and me, at dinner at Cafe de Artistes...
we watched shows each night...but let's use the term "shows" loosely...
because I hardly think Stevie Wonder in a Santa suit, leading Eeyore on a leash qualifies as entertainment. But who am I to judge?
Julie and Jen at dinner the last night...
me, Lisa and Barbie...
And this picture is for the Mystery Girls...yes, Gilda tried to make an appearance!
And when we got back from Mexico, we celebrated in Dallas with a party at my house...just laid back, grilling and hanging out.
with my brothers, Benton and Bobby
Ginny and Celeste
Megan and Chris
Tim and Lydia
Gina, Jen and Barbie
Jason and Danael
And Lydia and Gina took me to Cretia's to celebrate and Bobby and Mary took me to breakfast. I've been slacking on taking pictures and, obviously, blogging. Hopefully I'm getting back on track now!

And since I didn't blog about it...now's a good time to let you know that I moved. A whole 1/2 mile from my previous place. Had to move very quickly, but found a much better place. I guess it's the downside of having a shady landlord when the economy's tough.
Here are the pics. And my favorite Christmas songs for your listening pleasure.
And I didn't even blog about Christmas last year...so here's a picture from Christmas last year so you can better see my goth tree as my brothers call it.

Next, my best friend Lydia is due today! But most likely, Bobby's birthday won't be until next week. (Not to be confused with the Bobby who is getting married this weekend.) She and Tim are definitely ready to meet him and you can read her blog here.
Then we will have my cousin Whitney's wedding and our family Christmas in Abilene.
Tiffani and Tim will be the proud parents of Mazie Marlene.
And in May, my little brother Benton will marry his best friend, Laura.
And I promise to update my blog before then.
