Morning Meanderings… Getting My 20’s On… Gatsby Style


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. 😉

    • 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.

  1. You never cease to amaze me with all the things you get done in a day!!

  2. I love the 20s! Flapper is my go-to Halloween costume. I hope you post some pictures of what you wear!

  3. 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. 😀

  4. 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.

  5. 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!

  6. 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? 🙂

  7. 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.

  8. This sounds so fun! A two hour commute can definitely be an anti-motivator, but it looks like it would be worth it 🙂
