Welcome to a new week, my friends! Can you believe that next week is the start of May? Summer is already here!

We had the best weather this past weekend. Seriously, I think it was the most beautiful it's been all year - 70-80 degrees, no humidity and perfect sunshine! We spent it grilling, biking, walking little Miss Safari, hanging out on our roof deck, reading, and squeezed in some time to stop by a friend's art show, and saw Beauty and the Beast, as well (finally)!

Monday started out busy as ever (doesn't it always), as I am gearing up for a big week ahead! Did I mention I head to Vegas on Friday to see Backstreet Boys!!!!!!!!!! Oh, yeah!!! I cannot wait to sing along to every song and pretend it's the 90's again! But before I do that, I have a big event that I've been involved with the past several months that I'd love to share with you.

The annual Heroes & Handbags event that benefits the Heroes for Children organization, is taking place this Thursday, April 27th. The luncheon features designer and one-of-a-kind bags that are up for auction, all benefiting an amazing cause. One of those bags happens to be this gorgeous Anya Hindmarch rainbow clutch that I am carrying. Isn't it fabulous?

'Heroes for Children advocates for and provides financial and social assistance to families with children (0-22 years of age) battling cancer. A childhood cancer diagnosis takes a financial and emotional toll on the entire family. Heroes for Children is committed to alleviating the stress of these families, whether is it through the payment of electric bills or mortgages, or through the numerous social events hosted each year. We have helped over 4,500 families in Texas and provided over $5.5 million in program services. 79% of our expenses is spent on programming and because of that, Heroes for Children enables families to focus on the most important part of treatment—the child.'

Cancer is a cause near to my heart, so I was elated to get involved on a greater scale this year (in the past I have only attended the event).Not only am I on the committee, but I am also the Handbag Solicitation co-chair for the event, which is celebrating is 11th year!

There is still time to snag a ticket and grab your girlfriends for what's bound to be a great event. I mean, who doesn't like shopping for a cause (just don't tell your husbands)! Did I mention there'll be bags by Celine, Prada, Elaine Turner, Miles David, and Jimmy Choo, just to name a few?! Hope to see you there!
