Day 10: Mighty Good Things!!!

I know I totally owe you guys a full report on the speed dating shenanigans, but my excitement cannot be contained and I HAVE TO TELL YOU WHAT HAPPENED!!!

So last night, when I got home from the shenanigans I checked my email one last time before going to sleep. What? You know you want to see what spambot who loves you before you close your eyes. And I see this:

WHATWHATWHAT?!?!

THE ODDS WERE EVER IN MY FAVOR!!! And all I had to do was send a sassy voting tweet and post a Facebook message with a few unimposing hashtags. Like so.

Now I am doing a thousand happy dances in my underwear around my place, because I cannot believe I was actually chosen as a recipient of a $500 grant from Go Mighty! BUT – at the same time, I consider this a chance to do something amazing with it. Such a great opportunity should not be flung away on something trivial like a trip or a splurge purchase.  I want it to matter.  It’s time to take a magnifying glass to my list and figure out where this very, very cool thing can be put to best use!

Good things, people. Good things are going to happen.  And what if… just what if… winning this grant happened in order give me the strength and courage to post my Life List here at Fifty Shades of Peach?  That’s how it feels to me, so I’m going with it.  I promise to try to create a page dedicated to my Life List before I head to Camp Mighty next week (AGGH IT’S ALMOST HERE!!!).

Today, Peach is grinning ear-to-ear happy.

Good things.

  6. Yay! That is awesome! And I can see how you would want to make sure it really mattered. Sad thing is, I don’t even really HAVE a life list. But I have a feeling you’ll be inspiring me to do one when you start talking about yours.

    I can’t wait to hear what you do with this money!
