Not A Sunday Adventure
Sundays we are known to go on an adventure and to basically get out of the house. Today was not that Sunday. My daughter spent the night at Papa's house and I woke up in the worst mood imaginable. I just felt like crap and emotional and downright lazy. But, I'm not the type of person to just lay in bed all day and sleep unless I'm sick or down right exhausted to where I pass out. So I got dressed, put on a little makeup, grabbed my laptop and headed out the door. I'm currently sitting in a coffeehouse, sipping on coffee and blogging by a window. And let's just say my mood has been changed.
But what I really wanted to talk about was yesterday. I want to talk about Saturday and my first ever fundraising event. I volunteered to take lead on a fundraising event for my daughter's school and PTA - A Gingerbread House Party! Now, let's pause right there, I have never built a gingerbread house, but here I was hosting an event that depended on them.
I think this is one of the bravest things I could have done. I am not a social butterfly and nor have I led a fundraiser. It was so much fun. The planning, the emailing, the collecting of supplies, and organizing the event in general. It was also a lot of work.
But, I wanted to 1. be active in my daughter's school, and 2. really create an event for families and friends to get together and really have fun. The turnout was great and I received many hugs and thanks for the event. Parents and kids and neighbors enjoyed it so much. The holidays are all about getting together and having fun and there was a lot a fun.
It was also great, because it got me out of my shell a little bit despite the anxiety I felt. Overall I was very happy and tired. Jordan went with her Papa and Johnathan and I had a movie marathon and slept. Our adventure was on Saturday this weekend and it was a lot of fun.
I didn't get to take a lot of photos because I was obviously busy making sure the event ran smoothly but I did take a picture of Jordan's gingerbread house, (of course.)
Cheers to new experiences!
