I’m writing this as I scurry around helping my girls get ready for THE MOST EXCITING EVENT of all their little lives. Yes, this Saturday they are going to be flower girls in their beloved Hannah’s wedding. Milkmaid braids are going to be involved. And pretty dresses. And shiny new shoes. And cake. The enthusiasm, it is high.
Anyway, there’s a bunch of stuff I’ve been meaning to share with you so here’s a little bit of this and a little bit of that…
First up! A little birdie told me that there might just be an announcement about the location and date of Edel ’15 coming up later this week! Jen and I signed the contract with the hotel a couple of weeks ago and have been dying to tell you all about it ever since. I am terrible about keeping secrets so you should all be very, very proud of me.
Also, I’ll be speaking at St. Michael’s Catholic Church in Houston, Texas next Tuesday! I’ll be speaking twice — once at 6:45 AM and then again at 10 AM. I’d love to see some of you if you’d like to come out! I’ll be speaking on what it means to thrive as a Catholic woman. I’m really looking forward to it. Everyone over there seems really sweet and I absolutely love public speaking. (That’s a little weird, isn’t it?)
If you’d like to attend, please let Mary Caprio know at firstname.lastname@example.org or (713) 403-4122 so that they can get a head count for breakfast.
Speaking of speaking, I was invited to be a part of Lighthouse Media’s new Catholic Speakers Association recently! The website will be up and running this fall but in the meantime, if you’d like to have me speak at your event, you can contact Jesse Ray at email@example.com or (630) 517-3502 to inquire about my fees and availability. I’d love to come see you!
BTW, the annual Support a Catholic Speaker month is going on over at Project YM. If you’ve heard me speak in the past and liked what you heard I’d love it if you’d cast a vote! Things like this help so much when you’re trying to get your name out there (which I am). Thanks, peaches!
OK, so last but most definitely not least, sweet Autumn recently offered to send me a box of Younique Fiber Lashes. I am so in love with these things I cannot even tell you. My lashes are ridiculously short and I’ve never been able to find a mascara that has managed to add much in the way of length. Until now! Suddenly I have long lashes! I’m in heaven! If you see me, I might not be able to resist batting them at you. Consider yourself warned, girlies. ;)
(I tried to take some pictures but they failed to do the fiber lashes justice so I’ll just direct you to my friend Rachael’s before and after picture. Isn’t she gorgeous? Aren’t those lashes made of WOW? Wow.)
If you’d like to come and take up residence with me in Long Lash Heaven, just let Rafflecopter know! Autumn has sweetly offered to give one set of Younique fiber lashes and a lip gloss to one reader. Thank you, Autumn!
