Alright, if you scrolled down through all of this you are a trooper and are now filled with much inspiration!
I leave you with a few stories and words that marked my CHA experience:
My fun lovely, southern friend Jennie Harper and I were headed up in the elevator one day when it stopped at a service floor and a waitress carrying a tray of delicious looking shrimp stepped in. She asked us if we wanted one and just as we were saying, "Sure!", she said, "You're going up right?" Our faces fell and we retrieved our stretched out arms just before we could lay our hands on those delectable-looking shrimp saying, "Noooooooooo." The waitress just smiled as she stepped back from us and exited the elevator the next floor up. As the elevator door opened we could hear dance music blaring--we quickly realized this VIP shrimp was not for us! LOL!
You know you're at CHA when:
-You leave with more giveaway bags then you know what to do with
-You are wearing multiple dog tag type necklaces that make you jingle all the way
-You are also wearing quite a collection of brightly colored paper and fabric flowers
-People look at your name badge first, then you
"Flocking Pastor" (that would be yours truly)--Nina Brackett
"Milkdrops"--Nina Brackett (can't believe I just wrote that!!!!LOL!)
"Don't count your chickens before they hatch." --Jennie Harper
"When two vowels go a'walkin', the first one does the talking"--Yours truly
I know there were quite a few others so if you ladies remember them, let me know and I'll update my list! :)
That's all for now folks! Stay tuned for my regularly scheduled crafts starting back up soon!
