Kind of hard to believe from the comfort of my cozy home this morning that a week ago I was loading up the car with a prom dress, bubble toe tennis shoes, a black make up marker, and wearing a friend of mines dog tags to go to Anoka Minnesota to throw myself in the lake.
Crazy Minnesotans… we will do anything for entertainment in the winter. 🙂
SO for this Saturday Snapshot, I give you the Polar Plunge pics that I have. There are more to come from the professional camera peeps of the event however those are not posted yet.
and the pictures you are waiting for….
It was for a good cause, our area alone had 1,000 plungers raising a total of $208,000. Other areas:
South Metro: 985 Plungers raised more than $232,000
Alexandria: 435 Plungers raised more than $93,100
Today there is a plunge in my home town of Brainerd Minnesota. Oddly, I have completed two now but I have never jumped in Brainerd. Hmmm…. maybe next year 😀
You may recall in January I picked my word for this year to be Emerge. I purchased the above necklace for myself on my birthday to remind myself of my word. I think so far… I am living it. 🙂
Today is a day of reading, web design, working out, and just chilling around the house. I rented Mockingjay for my hubby and I to watch tonight. Laying low and loving it!
Good morning! As the sun comes up this morning in Central Minnesota I am prepping to leave for my two-hour drive to Anoka MN where at approximately 1:45 pm today, I along with many many other crazy people are going to jump in the lake for Special Olympics.
I am guessing I signed up, I received pledges. I am doing this.
I offered the people who pledged me to have a say in one thing that I wear. I will be wearing a prom dress. Dog tags. And something Harry Potter. I will show you what that ensemble looks like at a later time.
For the rest of you… stay warm. Read something good. I will be finishing the audio book All The Bright Places today during the drive time.
I am linking this post to Saturday Snapshop. Stop and see what everyone else is taking pictures of today 🙂
Good morning! Friday! Egads, it is Friday! I feel good though. I have a good work day planned, prep for tomorrows Gatsby Event and plan dinner and a workout (not in that order). Should be a nice “little bit of everything” day.
When I woke up this morning I seen on Facebook that our 2011 Polar Plunge pictures are circulating again. I love looking at crazy pictures and have to laugh as pretty much everyone I did the plunge with said they would never do it again.
LOL… why not?
It really was a good time. 🙂
Alright… that was a Facebook inspired post but it was fun. 🙂 Off to do my thing… have a super day. And… do something crazy. Really.
