LLS and Titans Heaven!

I promised you details, so here you go...

Two nights ago, I spent the evening at an event for LLS - The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. (www/ I have to say, it was one of the most touching and amazing events I have attended. There were 12 candidates that had been nominated for Man/Woman of the year and these people were soooo inspiring. They had each spent 10 weeks raising funds and awareness to help find a cure. They had an unreal amount of dedication to their cause and it was great to see their efforts rewarded. All of this was in honor of the boy and girl of the year...Markeise Stroud and Palmer Richardson. The campaign of each candidate helped not only these two children, but millions of others in their fight against leukemia and other blood cancers. I really urge you to find out more about LLS. It's an amazing organization.

So, you may be wondering what made this night my own personal Tennessee Titans heaven. (You may not, but I'm gonna tell you anyway)
For those that don't know, I am a HUGE Titans fan!!! I think they are the best team ever and I think football is the best game ever. So, I'm a little bit of an obsessed fan, but I think it's a healthy obsession. Right?
Anyway, my favorite player is Cortland Finnegan. Don't get me wrong, I also love Bironas, Young, Collins, Hentrich, get the point. But it's safe to say that Mr. Finnegan is my favorite. That being said, when I got the invitation for the LLS event, it came from the Titans own Susan Reinfeldt. Yes, that would be the wife of our fearless general manager, Mike Reinfeldt. She is my new hero of the week. She not only invited me to the event, but she also sat me at Cortland's table!

Hehehe!!!!!! So, not only was I at his table, but I got to sit by the brains behind his amazing organization Ark31. ( Her name is Lacey Owens and she is divine. She is also Cortland's better half. For those of you that are unhappy about hearing that Finnegan has a girlfriend, don't be! She's beautiful, intelligent and has the hugest heart. She made me excited about getting more involved in the community and we had a blast all evening.

Seriously, I had the best time at the LLS event and I can't wait until next year. I can't tell you what I got in the silent auction, but it's going to blow your mind! Well, maybe not, but I'm excited! I get it next week and you better believe you will hear all about it. Thanks to Susan, Bob Hyde, Cortland, Lacey and the entire LLS staff (plus my girls Lauren and Emily...the best candidates in the world!) for making this such an amazing night to be a part of. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Oh! I almost forgot!!!!!

You are too cute! I said this last night on facebook but I know about LLS and it is an AMAZING organization. Thank you so much for telling us a little bit more about the event, sounds very cool. Childhood cancer is especially something which people need to be educated about, so thank you for helping spread the word.

SO cool that you got to sit at Finnegan's table! I'll check out his organiazation.

Can we take guesses as to what you got in the silent auction? A puppy? An air hockey table? A date with Vince Young?? Can't wait to hear what it is!

Love ya!

Sounds like you had a lot of fun!

I love the acronym that Cortland choose for his charity. ARK31 (Acts of Random Kindness and 31 for his jersey number) is a really neat name.
