So Much to do...In so little time

OMG... Christmas is right around the corner and I have not purchased ANYTHING!!!  I don't have many people to purchase gifts for which is a good thing.  Our upcoming wedding takes precedent on EVERYTHING.  We refuse to start our lives together in debt for six hour day!! So holiday cards for everyone - maybe I will put some lottery tickets inside (hopefully someone will hit big!!)

Speaking of the wedding.  I am SO EXCITED!!!  When we got engaged, 2013 seemed so far away.  Now in reality, we are ALREADY paying for things and it will be here before we know it.  The guest lists are being written, the colors are picked, the location is amazing, the food - SLAMMIN', the music - JAMMIN'!!!

I am brainstorming on starting a mentoring group for young girls at my school.  I have the overall concept and what goal I would like to achieve.  I am excited to start planning and help as many young girls as I can.  I would like to have programs on college prep, resume writing, etiquette, etc.

Just a little update on what I've been doing.  What have you been up to??

  15. Oooh, congratulations!!!! The mentoring group sounds like a great idea. I did it about two years ago but sadly, they ended. I think it was about lacking financing for the program.
