I know I’m lagging a day or two behind. I pretty much posted everyday this week! Can I get a cheers for that? I actually sported this look on Wednesday (10.03.2012). I wore different elements of this outfit for many reasons.
1.) The bling bling necklace and bangle were in support of my friend Stacey aka Bling Bling. Stacey was born with one of the RAREST forms of Down Syndrome there is in the world. Instead of totally missing chromosome 22 (how you develop Down Syndrome) she is missing half of it. When she was born she was not expected to live past being a toddler, but 29 years later she’s been proving the health and science community wrong. I want to say (don’t quote me on this) there are less than 500 people in the United States like here. Well, about a month ago Stacey suffered a stroke that was caused by three brain aneurysms. She was immediately rushed to the hospital where brain surgery was performed. While Stacey is still alive she has been in ICU since then. Stacey’s dirty 30 is today (Friday 10.05.2012) and a group on Facebook was started to wear bling in solitude for Stacey! While Stacey may be different mentally no one treated her that way. She proved that even though she was born with a disability she could hold down a job, party with girls her age, and give speeches. Anyone who meets Stacey instantly falls in love with her infections smile and zest for life. Don’t let the innocent smile fool you; the girl can get down with the best of them. I ask that everyone keep Stacy lifted up their prays and call upon for a full recovery!
2.) I wore the Vote t-shirt in honor of the first presidential debate between President Obama and Governor Mitt Romney. No matter what party line you coincide with I want to implore everyone to make sure they are registered to vote… and once you are registered make sure you vote early. I have been reading conflicting information on the dates of early voting, but once I figure it out I will let you guys know!
THE LAST DAY TO REGISTER TO VOTE IN THE STATE OF TEXAS IS 10.09.2012!!!!
Verify you are registered to vote in Texas HERE!
