Nothing short of a success...

Brenda Fest 08! was a success to say the least! The turn out was awesome, lots of people came out to support me on my mission to raise tuition money. It was good food, good people and good times :) Thank you to those of you who helped me put it together and thank you to those who contributed. I couldn't have done it without any of you!

I was able to raise enough money to go back to school! I am extremely excited to say the least. God is amazing, and always seems to work things out. I sometimes forget that I have to let him take over and trust he'll do what's best for me. Well this time I didn't, I heard loud and clear what I was asked to do and I did it. He completely honored my efforts and rewarded me in the most amazing way.

This year has already been nothing short of fantastic and I can't wait to see what the rest of the year brings. I know God has me in his hands and that gives me comfort.

Until next time...

Brenda Fest 08!

So out of the things I said I wanted lately, I've gotten just about all of them...

Tomorrow night we're having a going away bon fire for Mike, I'm really going to miss him. I just have to keep thinking that it's just an excuse for me to fly out to Philladelphia and go visit him.

I've been getting more sleep lately, I've been averaging a bed time of 11:30 to midnight which is pretty good for me. Also, I don't feel sick anymore :) My allergies are finally undercontrol. Two nasal sprays and one pill later!

Still no Chipotle but I'm working on it...

As far as money for school and a BBQ at the She-shack, I'm throwing a fundraising BBQ extraveganza! Yes friends, I'm going to cook my way into school! It's this Saturday at 7pm. Bring a minumum of $10 dollar donation and it gets you carne asada tacos, rice, beans, salsa and a drink. OH! cookies and brownies as well. We're going to have swimming and karaoke too! It'll be a blast. Tell you're friends! So far I've already had a few people say they can't make it but they would be happy to help me out :) People really do surprise me sometimes with how generous they can be.

Thank you to the people helping me put this whole thing together! Here's a little shout out!
