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.

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……

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.
