Good morning! Thursday already! I am not even sure how that happened… I went through most of yesterday thinking it was Tuesday. No idea where I lost a day.
I have been back and forth on an event in Roseville Minnesota coming up this Saturday. It is a Gatsby event for their library sponsored by their friends group. I sooooo want to do an event like this in Brainerd in 2016. Months ago I said I would attend but then coming back from our long trip, I suddenly just wanted to stay home. (I kind of still do).
Yet… as the event draws closer… I became inspired. Yesterday morning I looked at what I had in my closet of dresses and found one or two that will work… then I went to our local party store and found a wig.. yes a wig… that will also work.
I think I want to go.
It sucks that it is 2 hours away… but with a little luck, next year it wont be. 🙂
So that’s what I am up too.
Remember my word for this year is “emerge”… and I need to emerge out of this house. lol
Today I have a freelance project to start moving on, a mailing for the library, work out session, and the start of the flyer for the bike ride in July for Camp Benedict. I do not lack for things to do. 😉

Love the Gatsby inspired event. How fun is that??
I love that it is a book theme off a Minnesota author 😉
I know the feeling but I’m sure you’ll have a blast once you get there.
That’s just it Kathy, I know it will be a good time. 😀 I have already spoke to them last fall about wanting to do this event so they know I am looking for ideas.
You never cease to amaze me with all the things you get done in a day!!
I sometimes feel like I get nothing done in a day. Thanks for the kind words.
I love the 20s! Flapper is my go-to Halloween costume. I hope you post some pictures of what you wear!
Oh there will be pictures – that is half the fun 😀
Wow, what a fun event! I’d definitely vote “go,” but that 2 hour drive is a major drawback.
It is a drawback for sure… and we will come back that night as we both need to be in town on Sunday. Oh well… hopefully we will have a ton to talk about on the way back and the time will pass quickly. 😀
What a fantastic idea!! I am like that too…you want to go, but you don’t.
I forget my word for the year. I chose two. Can you please send the link to your post and I will see what I chose? I even had my family do the word of the year and I still can’t remember. 🙂
Thanks, Sheila. I can’t believe it is Thursday either. These weeks just fly by.
I will try to look that up for you Elizabeth, I have a big contract due today so not sure when I I will get to it. 🙂
Sounds like a super fun event! I love the Gatsby era and would love to attend an event or party in the theme of. Very cool!
I am hoping it inspires me…:D
Of course you’re inclined to want to stay home. All you’ve been doing is travelling lately! Home is nice 🙂 And since you already bought a wig, I’m thinkin’ you’re goin’! lol Can’t wait to see pics, but at least you can do more audio on your drive, right? 🙂
LOL, I can always save the wig… I enjoy events like this…but yeah, I am going Bought tickets yesterday. 😀
I feel like that all the time about events! I love your word for the year. I need to emerge out of my apartment too. And the 20s – oh, I so so so love those flapper dresses! I hope you post a pic of you in the wig!
Ahh yes, I dont have a flapper dress (too cold anyway!) but I have a dress that will work. 😀 Today I will grab some accessories at the party store in our town. 😀 Yes, there will be pictures.
HOpe the event was fun! I love 20s clothing!
I do too… it is such a fun era!
This sounds so fun! A two hour commute can definitely be an anti-motivator, but it looks like it would be worth it 🙂
I think so too, and I get to hang out with my friend so we can chat on the way 🙂
