Happy Monday everyone! After a weekend in Colorado with my girlfriends and then getting delayed flying home because of get this – a broken toilet on the plane – I am feeling like this cat today:
Or maybe, like this one….

Anyways, on to the point of this post. February is American Heart Month so I wanted to share some information with you about heart diseases from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). “Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the United States; one in every three deaths is from heart disease and stroke, equal to 2,200 deaths per day. These conditions are also leading causes of disability preventing people from working and enjoying family activities. Cardiovascular disease is also very expensive—together heart disease and stroke hospitalizations in 2010 cost the nation more than $444 billion in health care expenses and lost productivity. However, we can fight back against heart disease and stroke. CDC and other parts of the US government have launched Million Hearts™, to prevent the nation’s leading killers and empowering everyone to make heart-healthy choices.”

And check back with my later this week because I have an early Valentine’s Day present to giveaway to one of my fabulous readers. I’ll give you a hint…It involves chocolate! 🙂
How was your weekend? Are you feeling like either of these cats today?
