I Got Volunteer Of The Month!

I'm happy to report things are looking up since my last venting sesh. I got some much needed family time, a girls night out, and I found out I am the Volunteer of the month for the FRCSC!







That is nuts to me because I just started this volunteer thing. I didn't even know there was a volunteer of the month when I started painting those owls, and now I've gotten this awesome recognition. To some it may not seem like a big deal, but I'd be lying if I said I didn't tear up a little. I've been working my butt off lately, and it's really nice to know that it's not going unnoticed. As a matter of fact, I mentioned to Will that he gets all these special homecomings, and I get nada when I come home. He needs to recognize I'm VOM now ;)

Girl time is also getting me through these days. I haven't really had many 'girly nights out' since I've been married unless Will was deployed or in training, but the paint party we just went to at All About Art was a big stress reliever. Wine, painting, and girl talk? A-M-A-Z-I-N-G.

It was awesome that our group took up half the room, but I don't think our teacher liked that very much. In the words of Carrie, don't tell us to bring wine and then get mad when we end up drunk tipsy. Let's be real...all that matters is that we can maintain a paintbrush.

Whatevs...our paintings turned out great, and even though I didn't really want to paint a peacock they were really cute, I made that ish my own, and my teal color scheme totally worked. I don't want to make a habit of losing time with Will, but there will definitely be another painting party in our future. Hhhmmm...maybe I should just make them all come to my house and have them help me paint/stain my benches, coffee table, and sofa console. I won't even charge them the $30 bucks! What about y'all? Any takers?

I'm glad that your giving spirit was recognized (and I know you would have done it anyway without the recognition) :)

I'm going to one of those paint and wine parties with some military wives this weekend and I'm super excited! It's my first girls night since moving to Florida and I think my husband is more excited about it than I am, haha.

Congratulations lady!!! I was nominated for volunteer of the month for the spouses' club here... but I was up against some stiff competition.. as in the chair that managed the community expo we just put on. So I lost. Which sucked.. but hey, I was nominated! LOL. Also, I love painting and wine classes!

I'm glad you were recognized for all of your hard work! I'll come and paint whatever you want at your house as long as there's wine and I don't get in trouble for being excited to be there ;)
