orange friday.


I’m getting so excited for the DiabetesSisters conference coming up in Raleigh, NC in May, so instead of blue friday, I bring you orange friday! Brandy Barnes and DiabetesSisters are working hard to make orange the official color of women’s diabetes.


No I’m not wearing orange, but my tulips are, and they are blooming, and my giraffe mirror is the best four dollars I’ve spent in a while.

It looks like there are still spots available for this years conference, so check out everything they have to offer at This will be my third year attending, with my also T1 sister, and it’s seriously amazing. PLUS, Kerri Sparling of Six Until Me will be there, and if you are reading my blog, you’ve had to have read hers. I’m pretty damn excited. There is also a program specifically for partners of diabetic women. Really, just go check out their site. 🙂

(please excuse typos and format errors, posting via phone. And it sucks.)
