I have extended the giveaway deadline until Monday morning, so spread the word!

In other news: I had my first mammogram today. Since my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer when she was 37 (and beat it seven {right mom?} times since then), they recommend you start getting mammograms 15 years earlier then your relative. It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. Uncomfortable, but not painful. I think that is largely due to the fact that I don't really have much to squish down, thanks to genes and post-baby floppiness. Everything turned out normal. I also had the BRCA gene test done, and I have no genetic mutation, which was a huge relief, but my risk is still higher than normal since breast cancer runs in my family. I still have to be extra careful. SO, ladies, do your self-exams religiously and take care of yourselves!
