It Ain't Perfect, But Here I Am Singing The National Anthem!

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.
