Month: August 2012

Last night I went to a “Blizzard Beach” themed party for my companies marketing firm.  Let me tell you what, they put on one HELL of a party! 

It was their 10 year anniversary, so they had 2 open bars, amazing food catered by the best restaurant in town, a band, a “beach” they had made themselves, and loads of their clients, along with the mayor of Lansing.

It was all fun and games until our account executive, Jeff, a super cool guy, was talking to me about how they created their beach when I, in typical Steph fashion, knocked over his bottle of beer, shattering it on the ground.  Jeff suddenly says, “I have a huge gash in my foot”, and we look down to see a massive cut just below his pinky toe.  He quickly turns around and hobbles into the office.  Sure enough, my most recent spill had caused blood shed, complete with chunks of flesh and blood clots mixed in with the beer and glass on the concrete.

He was so cool about it saying that it was probably he who had actually knocked it over, but I assured him that I am a walking catastrophe, and if he knew me better, he would have no doubt as to who actually knocked over the beer.

Did I mention that I wasn’t even drinking?  Yeah…I’m fun at parties.

BUT on a good note, it really was a great night/day.  It was one of those days where I was totally in love with my little/big city.  I love being involved and being out and about, seeing people I know and meeting new people.

I did meet a girl who has a program in the area that is trying to promote physical fitness and running amongst the younger generation, so we started chatting and I believe I am going to be jumping in to that endeavor 🙂  So it wasn’t a total wreck of a night.

I ended my fabulous day with grocery shopping with the man, and we LOADED UP on fruits and veggies.  I love that “home from the grocery store with fresh produce” feeling 🙂

Have a great day!

This morning I had the privilidge of going to the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer kick-off breakfast.  This is a cuase that is very close to my heart, and I am always so inspired when I go to events like this.

I love being surrounding by people who support and are passionate about something in the same way you are.  Hearing stories of survival, loss, and hope is amazing, and I feel so lucky to have outlets like this to be involved and help in any way I can.

I was shocked when they asked survivors to stand up and the room suddenly seemed full of people who have had breast cancer themselves.  And they were women of ALL ages!  Young and old.

I am so excited to be getting a team together for a second year for this event and hopefully raise some money!
