Bunko Night!

On the VERY rainy night of Monday, we had our first ever Womens' Bunko Night, put on by our church. It's part of the efforts we are making to create "trans-generational" events - functions that can attract ladies 18-81. To that end, I believe I underestimated when we advertised as we did indeed have a gal there that was 91 and a baby 11 weeks old!

I was super pleased with how it all turned out. Betsey did a phenomenal job emceeing, and all of the work done behind the scenes by Stephanie H., Lisa, Christy, and Ann - as well as Rhonda and Marianne who work in Womens' Ministries through our church....well, I think it exceeded my expectations.

I do wish we'd been "better represented" by the women of my generation. I met plenty of strangers, but I was hoping to prove that "we" would come out of the woodwork if offered the right activities. A big thanks, though, to Amy and Lisa S. for both coming and bringing friends.

The pictures below were taken by the faithful photographer, Kaela. She caught a lot of images of the college students that attended - I was so thankful they all came as they brought a LOT of LIFE to the event!!!!

Apropos to nothing - I really like your hair!

That's funny, Heather - when I saw that picture I realized I liked it too and am wondering what I did so I could replicate it. My hair is so dry and split-endy that I've been curling it alot to hide that fact.....
