Catching Up

I know it has been a while since my last post. This one is coming to you by request of my dearly missed friend Carrie so she can properly stalk me from Michigan.

Since my last post there have been a lot of late nights at Relay For Life meetings and 5 Relay events. I have been working on logistics for a brand new event to Springfield, Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. I also volunteered to help with Corporate Sponsorship for our Bike to Battle Cancer event. I am also the staff lead for the training workgroup for Relay Regional Council which means I, along with volunteers, will be planning our big volunteer trainings. Work is going along great. I am excited that we have brought 3 new staff on board and they fit in well.

What little personal time I have it has been slowly planning the wedding. I HAVE managed to find my dress, which wasn't as fun as I had imagined. I do very much love the dress but the process was stressful. Chago has come home once since my last post to visit. He was home for about 12 days and it was definetely not long enough. I miss him and do not like being by myself. He is coming home to visit for the Labor Day weekend. Again will not be long enough but it is better than nothing. I have made two trips to Silver Dollar City which are always a great Ozarks time!

Chago and I, while he was home in July, had engagment pictures taken.
Kassi at Vivid Impressions did an amazing job.

These are just a few of my favorites.

I know that this post is not the most amazing. There are not any great stories, I have not done anything fantastic to share with you. This is my life right now.......

I do promise to post on a more regular basis so hopefully I will have better posts in the future.

To look forward to.......
Bridal Expo on Sunday
Bike to Battle Cancer event on Saturday
Cattle Baron's Ball on Saturday
Chago's visit Labor Day Weekend


  1. Thank you for the update! This made my day! What dress did you settle on? Do tell! What are you doing for CBB?

  2. Thanks for all your efforts on Relay for Life. And for some inspiration, check out this video -- ahamoment.com/pg/moments/view/1848 -- about one Relay volunteer's "aha moment." I think you'll relate.

    All the best -- jack@ahamoment.com

  3. Jack-Thanks for the video. It is inspiration that I will share.

  4. Carrie-I will send you an email with the link to the dress. I have the best job at the CBB. I am on the PARTY BUS....oh yeah!
