Celebrate Good Times...Come On!

These people are my heroes. They fought a tougher fight than I have ever experienced. They beat the odds and won. I tip my hat to all the cancer survivors around the world. You people truly are my heroes! Friday night we had 85 survivors show up to Relay for Life.

Another Relay for Life has come and gone. I must say this year was another great year. We rose over $85,000 and everyone had a great time. I was impressed with the way everything unfolded. This year Sister #1 and I Co-Chaired the Luminarias. I didn’t have time to take a picture of all of our bags, but I found this one on the Internet. We can pretend that’s me in the picture. However, I was not calm and collect like this chick. If you really want to imagine Sister #1 and me Friday night; imagine two girls running around like chickens with their heads cut off yelling at their family and friends for help! We was trying to light tons of bags, constantly burning our thumbs with the lighter, and making sure ALL the bags didn’t catch on fire. It was crazy!

Have you ever wondered what OKChick is like during the wee hours of the morning? If so, please scroll down to Exhibit A & B.
Exhibit A:

Around 1:00am we got this great idea for a picture on a fire truck. Don’t we look good for being up lots of hours? All of us girls had worked, ran around like crazy people, and been walking laps around the track. I think we look hot; literally hot because it was toasty outside. Sadly, the cute firefighters had to go rescue a house and didn’t see how hot we looked on their fire truck! Otherwise, we might have gotten some dates!


Exhibit B:

At 2:00am we felt the sudden urge to sing Celebrate to hundreds of screaming fan. Ok, fine not hundreds of people, but a large crowd and yes we had screaming fans. We were so good that everyone got up on their feet and started a Congo Line. This is just more training for my future job- Rock Star.

I've always wondered how you light those without burning yourself...I guess you don't. I might just have to invest in one of those long lighters.
I'm gonna allow DD to play with fire this year...she's gonna have to try to get our fire going when we go camping and make our dinner. I'll keep you posted. ;)

Perfect! My future job is something famous as well, so I can go on Dancing with the Stars. Maybe we'll be competitors someday.

Try an Aim n Flame instead of a regular lighter: the longer handle is nice :)

ROFL Such a shame for ya'll! :)

Great...Kelly I will see you on the dance floor. HA!

Renee- Please keep me updated.

TC- We had the long lighters but they were all broke. I was not saying pleasant words Friday night.

I just assumed Exhibit B is how you always act :)

I would have requested YMCA if I'd been there.
