My sister-in-law/close friend Lauren was on the TODAY show this morning!!!!!

Lauren started Operation Purple, a summer camp program for kids whose parents are in the military, and they (and she) are finally getting some major press...TODAY, 60 Minutes, USA Today, etc...

I am so happy for her, and so, so proud of her. She has poured her heart into this, I cannot express how amazing she is. Thousands of kids are getting the help and support they need because of her. There would be no Operation Purple without Lauren. She rocks in a major bad ass way! Watch the video, I totally cried.

That is her being case you can't recognize her...this is her making a fish face, with her bike helmet on...Hehe...Love Ya La!!

We all know you're just a**kissing so you can get backstage if she goes on Oprah.

Number 4 of 5 said... OK, yes.

If your sister gets me back stage at the Oprah show this marriage will totally be worth it.

Forget Oprah, I'm going for the Take Home Chef (aka- Bring Home the Cook). :)

Thanks for the praise...and the lovely photo! La
