"HOO" Are We?

First order of business...In case you are like me and would rather donate than waste water, my sweet friend Kelly is raising money for Pancreatic Cancer in honor of her father. She even created an FB page where you can buy her gently used, adorable clothes and ALL the proceeds go to the cause. You know it feels way better to donate than to pour ice cold water on yo'self.

On the quest of deciding what I want to be when I grow up, I've realized that any job I've ever had that involves event planning has always made me the happiest. The only problem is that most of those jobs require many hours on nights and weekends, and Will and I don't want to have opposite schedules. Well, I may not be getting paid for the event planning I'm doing now, but I get volunteer hours and the events are during normal work hours! We just won't go into how many hours I spent painting on nights and weekends, because at least I got to do that in the comfort of my own home.


Okay, so what did I put all that effort in for? We just had our kickoff event for the new year of the Fort Rucker Community Spouse Club. It was a Membership Exhibition and sets the theme for the whole year, which is "HOO" Are We?. A great way to focus on getting to know our members and incorporate cute owl decor.








I got to hang out with some of the most amazing females in the world {like, the whole world}, and promote awareness for causes like Operation Homefront and Team RWB. Oh, and there's cake...really, really, really good cake. I tried to say no, but I couldn't ignore the marble bliss.



The highlight though, was my sexy soldier showing up and telling me I did a good job. Anyone in the world can tell me I'm good at something, but it means way more coming from him. He's as happy as I am that this event is over...maybe more. I know this because when a friend asked for volunteers to plan our Ten year Reunion, he flat out said no before I even entertained the idea. We may or may not be having a reunion, but I can't do it all.


As for answering the question "HOO" am I...I'm a wife, daughter, sister, friend, volunteer, chef, tutor, housekeeper, and anything else I feel like being on a given day. The more I try to accomplish, the more I realize that anything is possible. "HOO" are you?
