And you couldn’t have that special day the way your friends do – you know, wear the ring on your finger and have it mean the same thing as everybody else. Just put yourself in that person’s shoes. It makes me feel sick to my stomach …. When I shared a picture of my tattoo on my Twitter page and said, ‘ALL LOVE is equal,’ a lot of people mocked me – they said, ‘What happened to you? You used to be a Christian girl!’ And I said, ‘Well, if you were a true Christian, you would have your facts straight. Christianity is about love.’ The debate resulted in a lot of threats and hate mail to people who agreed and disagreed with me. At one point I had to say, ‘Dude, everyone lay off.’ Can’t people have friendly debates about sensitive topics without it turning into unnecessary threats?” - Pop star Miley Cyrus on her marriage equality tattoo - - - - - - - - - - -

OMG Hilarious!

Movies to Watch: The Beauty and The Beast

When I first saw Alex Pettyfer in the movie, Alex Rider (I have yet to see I Am Number Four), I thought to myself, "this kid is going to be hot someday."  And my god, isn't he?  This stud is appearing in a new movie I'm really looking forward to seeing.

I have always been a fan of the Beauty and the Beast story, whether it be the Walt Disney Classic or the television series from the 80's, it sure was captivating.

Alex will be appearing in the new movie, Beastly, also starring Vanessa Hudgens and Neil Patrick Harris.  I have posted the trailer below, so make sure to watch it.  He will be transformed from a gorgeous hot throb into a rather hideous monster (exaggerating), and will have to find true love within a year or he will be doomed to stay a beast forever.

My Chevron Breast Cancer Car Collection

As most of you already know, I work for the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in the Breast Medical Oncology department.  I currently work with four Research Nurses (9 nurses since my employment), who have helped guide me in my career.  I've been working in cancer research for 9 years, with 6 solely focused on the terrible disease we all know as Breast Cancer.

Several years ago my Aunt, Lupe Flores, passed away to this terrible disease; a devastating loss to a beautiful family to say the least.  They miss her everyday, but together we have managed to look to the future in making sure we support the cause.

Over the years I have seen people die to this terrible disease, leaving me heartbroken beyond repair, and I can't imagine what it's like for the families who go through the turmoils they face everyday. But I've seen countless others survive this disease and this is why I dedicate this post to them.

As of 2007, I have been collecting the Special Edition Chevron Breast Cancer cars.  In 2001, Chevron launched a toy car named Hope to help promote Breast Cancer Awareness.  Since the launch, the popularity of this car has been astronomical.  These cars usually sell out in three months!  Luckily for me, I had a nurse who bought me my first one in 2007 and 2008.  And ever since then I have been buying the rest.  I currently have every issue, minus the very first one.  I have them set up in my office and will take a picture of them when I remember to.   But for now, here are the cars over the years.

Do your part in help promoting Breast Cancer Awareness by buying a car, walking for the Susan G. Komen foundation, or buying products from companies who donate part or all of their proceeds to research.  
With 100 percent of the net proceeds contributed to promote the early detection of breast cancer, I have helped contribute more than $1.8 million by sharing Hope, Faith, Cherish, Promise, 

Courage, Spirit, Devotion and Harmonee as a friendly reminder with loved ones affected by the disease.
