Remind me again...

Remind me again why when I lost my DL boarding the plane in San Francisco to Maui I had my brother-in-law fed-ex my passport so I could come home?

Relax much...

This was one of my favorites from our trip. I am really glad my Mom got to experience something like this. This is definitely the farthest west from KC she has ever traveled...and I am so glad she decided to make the journey with us.

Have a Pizza - Help Save a Life

Some of us Hotties attended this event last fall for Amy Tyler who is battling breast cancer. I just read on her carepage that they are hosting a second fundraiser for her this Saturday February 28th at the Pizza Shoppe at 736 Park Street in Olathe. The event will be hosted from 11:00am - 9:00pm and all profits made between those hours will be donated to Amy and her family to help ease the financial burden of her increasing hospital bills. So if your thinking of having Pizza on Saturday...why not stop in and make your meal count. Help Save Amy Tyler!


When many of us think of breast cancer, we think of middle aged or elderly women, however, the horrible reality is that breast cancer knows no age. Amy Tyler is a beloved 28-year-old wife to Kyle, mother to one-year-old Harrison, and wonderful friend to many. Amy was recently diagnosed with stage ll ductal carcinoma. This is the most aggressive form of non-hormonal induced breast cancer. Five months ago, Amy was nursing her son when she found the tumor. At first, the doctors thought she just had a clogged milk duct. That would have been the most likely cause of a lump on a breastfeeding woman of her age. However, Amy’s lump did not go away like she had hoped, but instead, grew larger. Amy, her family, and friends were all devastated upon receiving the diagnosis of breast cancer. Amy is a fighter though, and with her family and friends behind her she took her stand against cancer. Amy’s cancer had only spread to one lymph node and after having a radical mastectomy; she is now fighting her cancer with chemotherapy. As you can imagine, this has been an extremely difficult and emotional time for Amy and her family. Amy is a very strong person, and with the support of family, friends, and the community Amy will win this battle. She wants nothing more that to continue to be a loving wife and caring mother to her son. Due to this unexpected and life changing situation, a benefit is being organized by her family, friends, and sorority sisters. Operation: Saving Amy will be held on October 25, 2008, to assist her and her family during this time of need. All money raised will go directly to the Tyler’s to help pay for Amy’s medical bills and treatment expenses. We are asking the community to help Amy fight her battle with cancer, a battle that is becoming all too much of a reality to so many of us today. If you have children, think of how much you would not want them to grow up without a mother. Think of your spouse or significant other and know how Kyle would feel without Amy. Think of your own mother and how you would hate to lose her or for her to lose you. With each person that stands up to cancer a life is saved. Help save Amy’s life. Your consideration of this request to help Amy is greatly appreciated. Any support that you can offer to Amy and her family is welcome. Thank you for your generosity and caring spirit.
