Sister Act

One of the main reasons for why I actually decided to stop being a chicken and venture off into the world of blogging and start my own business was due to a constant reoccurring conversation that I kept having with one of my sisters.

We both wanted so many things to happen in our lives, but just kinda wanted to snap our fingers and have them appear. Isn't that how it happens in movies? Anyway we realized that in order to make our dreams a reality we needed to become Do-ers and be able to get ahead in life. So we both started our blogs at the same time and are constantly emailing each other with our latest endeavors in being a Do-er. (Come to think about I think the whole reason why we got a huge Do-er kick was after watching a Grey's Anatomy episode where Izzy and George were discussing becoming Do-ers themselves..hmm funny, but that's neither here nor there)

So in order to get a better picture as to one of the differences between me and my sister I always come to this scene from Dirty Dancing in which the whole family is eating at the dining hall in the resort and owner comes up to the Dad to ask about the family. It goes a little something like this:

Dad: Max, our baby's going to change the world.

Max (Looking at Lisa): And what are you going to do, missy?

Baby: Oh Lisa's gonna decorate it.

(Guess who is who)

While I have a strong passion for women's rights and even spend some time volunteering for such causes my heart will always belong to design. My sister along with my baby sister both want to truly save the world. They both work for non-profits and fight for woman's rights. We should be very lucky that they are in our corner.

Ok with this little antidote out of the way. Now back to the story at hand.

My sister in her modest every day attire.

One of my sister's latest wants in life was to make some extra cash and do something productive with her free time. Who doesn't want that? Enter the perfect part-time job opportunity. She got hired by Care 2, which is on online blogging community in which she gets to blog about women's rights. So in order to support my sissy in her latest endeavor. I wanted to give you all a sneak peak into her blog page at Care 2.

If you have a moment and enjoy what she wrote about then comments would be greatly appreciated!

First, I love that part of Dirty Dancing, it makes me laugh every time. I'm going to see it on stage next month and I really hope that part is in it. Oh, and the part "Nobody puts Baby in a corner"
