I can’t believe it is over. (Well, not really. Have you seen my garage?) lol
I can’t believe we pulled it off.

I see the photos on Facebook and Instagram…we did that!

I read the comments and hear that people had a great time…we did that!

I listened to people come up and tell me the night of the event how wonderful it was…we did that!

A lot of sweat and tears, hard work, loving volunteers, people and businesses had a helping hand in making this night a success. I don’t know how much money we raised, but I can tell you the amount of ladies I heard say “we had no idea” is priceless.

Spread The Glitter.

There were a few times during the planning process that I thought to myself “What have I gotten myself into? I can’t pull this off.” But then I would read Libby’s blog and that would push me. Drive me. I must. I have to…for Jennifer. For Maureen. For Delaney. For Austin. For Maylea. For Reegan. For Ty. For Gabby. For Aubrey. For the……

46 children that were diagnosed with pediatric cancer today.
7 children that died today from pediatric cancer

Setting up, I stressed out a couple of times. OMG people are going to be here soon. They paid money to come here.

But it all worked out.

Almost like we had help from someone(s) above.

I was told that I needed to speak. Not my forte. I even tried telling the “bosses” Libby and Michelle that I couldn’t fit it into the time line. lol. I didn’t want to but I wasn’t nervous. I looked out at all the women in the room and it was like I was among all my friends and family. I knew why you were there. I felt it.

I looked out and saw women from all chapters of my life: Family, Friends, High School, College, Sorority, Gold Rush, Sunset and now Mamas Night and Unravel. The support was overwhelming. I still can’t wrap my head around it.

I thought I would for sure feel like a chicken with it’s head cut off. But it was almost euphoric. We took the hiccups in stride. We rolled with it and produced a fun night for a great cause!

When most of the “work” was over I danced and chatted and had a good time celebrating. I spoke to so many people; they all told me what a wonderful time they were having. Looking back I realized there were a lot of women I didn’t get to speak to. Darn. I made contact with so many other Glitter Spreaders during the planning process. I love the new sorority we have created.

I looked around and still couldn’t fathom…we did this!

Now that it is over….Well, who am I kidding? It will never be over- until there is a cure. I am excited to help other locations get started. I am excited to partner with local businesses who were at Mamas Night Out that want to do more. I am excited to help a friend with her Give Us 12 event.

I am inspired because you were inspired.
Let’s ride this together….until there is a cure.

**I will write and share more (photos, videos). Just had to get this out.

It was the Littles first day at their new school.

The morning was abuzz with excitement. I busily made 3 lunches and packed their bags.

We took some photos of course and off we went. Luckily Zack took Katelyn too school because dropping off the Littles took longer than expected.

We walked in with another “first day” family.
We checked in and got Emily’s things settled.
Jase was clingy, whiney and wanted his binkie. We weren’t sure what we were going to do about that. I ended up leaving it and good thing I did because he needed that comfort.
We put Jase’s things away and then met the other kids at Circle Time. I could see the nervousness come over Emily by the way she played with her hair but she introduced herself to her teacher and sat down and sang along.
Jase still wanted me to hold him until he spotted a truck to play with. He ran over to it and I said bye. He ran back to me to give me a kiss. As I walked out I peeked into the window and he was sitting with Emily at Circle Time.

Afterwards they played outside. I could see on the camera system that he played with Emily. When they went inside I could see Emily playing and doing her work with her friends.

What I saw in Jase’s room broke my heart. He wanted nothing to do with snack or sitting down or being there! He stood off to the side. He turned away when offered his water or to be picked up. I just saw him standing there rubbing his eyes. He finally sat with Ms Anna and a couple other kids to play cars and trucks.

It was an emotional day, Ms Anna reported. He would say Emmy over and over and want to go outside to be with her. When they went out to see the firemen, Emmy gave him a hug and sat by him. I am so proud of her.

He clung to my finger at home a little more. He wanted Mama to play with him and watch toonies with him.

He woke up twice soon after going to sleep that night, crying. He never does that. Was he scared?

I am hoping tomorrow is better. For both of us.

Sweet Baby Jaxon was such a great model. So cuddly and sleepy. I don’t think I heard a peep out of him.

I have a lot of baby props..just ask my husband. lol
I have favorites too and so sometimes it is hard to offer up variety because I always go to my favorites.
But I was happy to create some new set ups and color combos at Jaxon’s session.

Super cute! Take a look!!

Pretty much lucked out on this one! Can’t even call it work!

Gorgeous afternoon in San Francisco.
Beautiful couple dressed well.
Fun loving people who listen- no candy bribing here! lol

I could get used to this! No chasing a toddler around and making sill faces this afternoon.
I am pretty lucky to get to do what I do.

I wish Allison and David the best for their Costa Rican wedding.
