Locks of Love

For about a year now, I have been growing my hair out in order to donate it to locks of love. It has been a LONG struggle but so worth it! Today was the day I made my hair appointment and cut off all my hair! I am so excited for this new look and ready to be 12 inches lighter! Here are some  pictures of after. (You can see before pictures in the Book Signing posts)


The Weekend Retreat

This past weekend was the Woodstock Dwarf House Annual Retreat. Ron (My boss) takes us to a cabin in the Blue Ridge Mountains to bond, relax, team build and discuss the upcoming years goals, etc. This is my second year on the team and this is a different cabin than last year. It's always alot of fun talking and getting to know the team without work issues coming between us. We did alot of eating, napping, working and LAUGHING! Dirty jokes and funny stories were already told before salad was served at dinner the first night! All in All, it was a ton of fun.

Night out with the Girls

Friday was the Pioneer Woman book signing and it was so much fun! My mom and I picked up Angie (CFA Office Manager and Friend) and headed down to Borders at 3pm to pick up our wristbands. Even though the signing didnt start till 6pm, they were hot comodity. Next, we made a pit stop to visit Ali and Wilson since poor baby Wilson was nutered the day before. This also helped waste some extra time we had. When we arrived back at Borders to get inline for the book signing, Dawn (Mom's Best Friend) and Devin (Dawn's Daughter) were there and waiting for us. So we waited....and waited... and waited to be called. We will in group number E so we were the 5th group in. While we were there we saw some CFA Home Office staff and even Ann Hughston (Ali's Sister-In-Law). The Pioneer Woman decided to bring along her husband, Marlboro Man and her two sons, Bryce and Todd. We got autographs and pictures and it was a blast! So excited to have been able to share this experience. Below are pictures I took of everyone....
