Today I hosted my first ever corporate event: our annual Leadership Summit.
Venue, catering, supplies--I was responsible for pulling all of it together... and anyone who known me a while, knows that I am not the event planner of the family ;)

But I did it! It actually happened without any major setbacks or glaring mistakes.  The venue was great, there was more than enough food and everyone said how great the day was.

[Putting my (new) iPhone to use ;]

Pictures going clockwise, starting with the top right:

Bob + others organizing our SWOT analysis [Strengths Weaknesses Opportunities Threats]
Breakfast from Specialty's - yum!
The SWOT analysis all done - too me that just looks so cool!
aaand... during lunch I found 5 minutes to indulge in pure happiness*

But after freaking out all week, it felt so good that it actually came together and happened! Ah, yay God! 

And now, I get to start planning my trip to BC with mom this weekend =)


*If I haven't told you about the Lizzie Bennet Diaries, I'm sorry. Anyway, it is a modern retelling of Pride and Prejudice in a vlog format... and it is amazing. They've released two "episodes" a week. for the last 6 months. and are half way done. (with today's being a very... significant episode =)
Yep. Every Monday and Thursday is a glimpse into literature and the art of adaptation (one of my favorite things). It is all very well done--professional actors, writers, everything. And the way they able to adapt the details--it just proves how universal Austen's writing is.  Seriously, I have a friend getting his DPhil in English at Oxford right now and even he's obsessed with this series.
Side notes: It takes the first few episodes for them to figure out the tone and everything, but it gets so good. Oh, and skip #6 - while I adore their portrayal of Lydia, she is way over the top here =/
But check them out - you will have a reason to look forward to Mondays!
And let me know what you think!
