Amateur at Best

Okay, so I get really excited about things.  Like so excited that I can hardly contain myself and sometimes it's like Christmas in the middle of August!
That's exactly the way I acted the week leading up to the first TriFABB event.

I was super excited and nervous for the event.  I knew I would be meeting some amazing women that all had something in common with me and at the same time I felt like Domesticated Working Woman might not match up to their work.

When asked why I started blogging, I can't help but to go to the old cliche: creative outlet.
But, this is!  I love writing and sewing and crafting and fashion and and and
This is the perfect platform for me to do all that and not have people look at me like I'm a crazy person, born in the wrong century, focusing on materialistic things as opposed to what's important.
Because if you know me, you know that only a few of those characteristics are really true...
still trying to shake the crazy label.

Anyway, every single woman I met blessed me in one way or another.  Whether it was their smile, their interest in what I was doing, their compliment on my shoes, etc.  I was truly blessed by attending the event and I am already looking forward to all of the great ideas Molly has for our group.
I did realize that I am still an amateur in many ways (in case you couldn't tell), but that this is an opportunity for me to learn and grow from these amazing gals!
Together, we raised toiletries and cleaning supplies for a local ministry, Transforming Hope.  Its goal is to get young females off the streets and out of negative situations. 

So, just in case your Monday sucked and you needed a little pick-me-up this morning after that yucky day, I decided to share with you some of the extremely fashionable and model-esque outfit shots Molly took of me before the event.  Just to make you smile.
Chambray: Target, Belt: Forever 21, Skirt: Thrifted, Shoes: Target

Hahahaha, very sexy!

One of my many talents: flaring my nostrils

I literally bought these shoes 30 minutes before the event began from the Clearance section at Target for $8.98!!  Got sooo many compliments on them = score!
So, Happy Tuesday!  Now that you have laughed out loud in front of all of your office-mates, make sure to sign up for my giveaway!
