Diabetesalicious -Lite Edition 8/20/10

This weeks "Diabetesalicious -Lite Edition" is brought to your by the letters A, B, D, F,G, K, M, TCOYD,& V.

A as is ART and D as is Diabetes Art, reverse them and you've got Diabetes Art Day on September 1st, the brain child of LeeAnn Thill. Get your Art on people! Seriously folks, gather those diabetes supplies and create something fantastical - I DOUBLE DOG DARE YOU!
Read all about it HERE.

B as in Bittersweet and K as in Karen over at BittersweetDiabetes wrote a really fantastic post called "Liar, Liar, Pants On Fire," about the lies we tell ourselves and others about living with the Diabetes. YOU NEED TO READ IT!

G as Ginger and her Vlog regarding FAILURE and how the word is highly overrated- I AGREE. Watch the video HERE!

Put the letters TCOYD they stand for TAKING CONTROL OF YOUR DIABETES - something we all try our best to do. But let's face it, that's not always easy, no matter how hard we try. We all could use some help and or inspiration in that area.At least I know I do! If your in driving, flying, walking and or running distance to Providence Rhode island's Convention Center on September 11th, register for TCOYD's Conference & Health Fair. Show your diabetes who's in charge!! For information and registration click HERE!

On the weird and wacky holiday front, Today is Men's Grooming Day and National Hug Your Boss Day.

WACKY FACTS: in the Pixar movie A Toy Story, the carpet designs in Sid's hallway is the same as the carpet designs in The Shining.

Lincolin Logs were invented by Frank Lloyd Wright's son, John L. Wright in 1916.

And now you know!

It's funny you mentioned TCOYD! A few friends want to go to Boston that weekend and I had the conference in my calendar. Thinking about breaking away for the day to attend :D

Great post, Kelly! Of course, thanks tons for supporting D Art Day. I will double vouch for Karen's post - a must read for sure.

Very interesting - and totally logical - that Frank Lloyd Wright's son came up with Lincoln Logs, and now I think I have to watch Toy Story again because I did not know that!

Thanks for the shout-out about my post. I've been loving all of the feedback I've been getting - thanks to everyone for all the comments.

So, does this mean you'll be at TCOYD next month? Pete and I would be psyched to see you there!!

The Shining used to scare the bejesus out of me. The whole 'REDRUM' and all - whew!!! I didn't know that about the carpet though, thanks for the movie tidbit.
Have a good weekend Kel!
