Hard Work and Fun Weekends

It was another busy week work and I continue to thank the Lord each day for strength to get through the day.  Although it has been super busy at work and a bit stressful at times, God has reminded me through the different kids that I work with on my caseload why I stay doing the job that I do.  I thank the Lord for each of the kids that God has provided me to work with and for the difference they have made in my life and for helping me make a difference in there's too.  Besides being busy at work I have been busy having some fun too.  Last weekend before going to Hello Kitty's 41st b-day party at a local Sanrio store I made a Hello Kitty thank you card for the owner of the store for always being so nice to my daughter and I. 

It was lots of fun playing games at the event,

winning fun prizes (My son played games for me to help me earn some cool Sanrio prizes and my daughter had fun earning her own prizes.),

and of course meeting Hello Kitty.

This week on Friday a good friend and I went to Tokidoki's 10th Anniversary party.  The party was amazing and so much fun.  We got to play games, go shopping, and meet some of our favorite characters.

We had so much fun yesterday that we went back again today.  To make a long story short we spoke to the person in charge of the event and asked about how to volunteer for the event.  She asked if we wanted to come back tomorrow to help and we said "yes."  My good friend, myself and my daughter got to volunteer for 10.5 hours at the event.  It was tiring but so much fun.  My friend and I are now pros at putting on temporary tattoos.

Beside volunteering we got a free lunch, got free tickets to play games to win prizes, meet the characters, and most importantly meet the designer of Tokidoki.  (I feel so blest to have gotten to meet him twice this year.)  He drew 3 sketches for my daughter and I and signed the coloring book that I purchased.

The past two weeks at work have been super busy, but my weekends have been one of the most memorable and fun ones.  I find it funny that it's always lots of fun going to different events but I have a much harder time bouncing back after each one.  I guess that's a sign that I am getting old.  LOL!  Thanks for stopping by!
