I actually thought I was going to get out of singing altogether, and then without warning they told me to head to the mic. I was like, "Um, what?" Who knows, maybe I would have been more nervous if I knew when it was actually going to happen, but either way, I was going to be a ball of nerves.
All I can say is at least I had the kahunas to do it, and it's taking me even more balls to share this with you, knowing that it's not perfect. I tend to be a tiny bit of a perfectionist, so don't judge me too harshly. Just get on it with it already,
but don't turn the volume up too loud.
All in all it was a great day! We raised lots of money for Operation Homefront, and we had a ton of fun in the process. Cute outfits, great food, and good friends were more than I could ask for, and I had so much fun that I might've done it for free if they'd asked. Luckily, they didn't ask 'cuz I made bank. Whoop whoop!
If you want to see these photos plus more you haven't seen, check out the P.I.E. Facebook page. I have just realized that it's WAY easier to put photos on there. Don't miss out ;)
And if that didn't excite you, then a giveaway might! I haven't participated in one for awhile and I'm a sucker for Blogiversaries, so I was happy to participate in Kelly's.
Kelly on Sparkles and Shoes turning 1 year old:
"I can not believe it! I still remember last summer how long and hard I pondered over choosing a blog name, deciding what to write about, and wondering if anyone besides my mom would read it - now here we are, a year later. None of this could have happened without the support of all of you, so thank you to my readers and everyone else who has supported Sparkles and Shoes! To help me celebrate I have partnered up with a great group of girls for a giveaway in honor of my birthday with hundreds in ad space, hundreds in gift cards, and half a dozen other fantastic prizes. Take a look at all of the things you can win in this giveaway!"
This giveaway is international, so enter away!
Enter away, because I would love to have one of YOU win!
Happy Blogiversary, Kelly!
