Saturday morning coffee with pan con dulce de leche… and stares from Cookie, the pomeranian. The Lupus Funk may have me down but this moment makes me smile. I hope it makes you smile too. Stay Fabulous!

Walk This Way with Team Unbreakable

Houston 2012 Walk for Lupus Now is an opportunity for people with lupus and their loved ones to come together and support each other.

The 2012 Walk, Run & Live, with supporters from the entire Texas Gulf Coast region, help the Lupus Foundation of America find a cure for lupus. Over 30,000 Houstonians are living with lupus.

Team Unbreakable before the Journey

For the second year, I have had the greatest pleasure in leading (along with Vero) TEAM UNBREAKABLE.  Our team raised over $4600, ranking us number 4 in Texas Gulf Coast region! This year on May 6, I was surrounded by many others in the Houston community, including Ally from Team Ally.

Here is my picture book experience of the 2012 Walk for Lupus Now adventure:

Rise and Shine! I am one sleepy diva.

Our team mascot arrived sporting the best fashion.

Yup, I am wearing a purple tutu (custom made by my fabulous friend)

The Fabulous Vero and her family and friends

Someone stole my look!!

With the tut and the pimp cane… about to start the journey…

Few of my best friends= the greatest support system

My #1 Fan- my father, the viejo.

Vero and I mid-walk… starting to feel exhausted.

walking it out!

Big Finish!

Vero and I post-walk. This is also right before my body punished me for pushing it too hard.

Post-Walk

The walk was such a great success. I would like to thank all my friends and family for all their massive support. I could not have completed the walk without their energy and love. However, I did push myself too far by completing the walk. Soon after the walk, I became seriously ill and fell into a 20-hr coma. I was not able to move until that Tuesday! But at the end of the day… IT WAS WORTH IT!
