Some exciting business, folks. Three exciting items of business. I know, this place is just a party.
First of all, there’s still time to enter the contest for the free, autographed copy of Melanie’s book, Not My Type. All you have to do is send anyone a thank-you note, and you’re in the drawing. Go to this post to enter. The drawing for the winner will be Wednesday night and I’ll pick up the book at the release party on Thursday.
Second, there are only TEN MORE DAYS until General Conference. It’s no secret how I feel about conference. (It’s my second favorite holiday after Christmas. Truly.) Anyway, I’ll be teaming up with Lesa from Notes about Music to create some kind of General Conference meme that you can all participate in on your own blogs. It will be a questionnaire about your experience with both the “music and the spoken word” that is conference. You’ll have it ahead of time so you can watch for answers during conference. Then we’ll have a big link-up thing where we can read all about everyone’s favorite moments and lessons. So, basically, just get ready for that– it’s coming soon. And as a personal side note, I can’t emphasize enough how much more you’ll get out of conference if you start now to think about questions you’d like answers to and pray about them in anticipation of hearing the Lord’s servants speak. You’ll be amazed how many personalized answers you will receive. Need something to get you in the mood? Watch this video. It’s fantastic. And amen to its message.
Finally, I’m thinking it’s time for another Girls’ Night Out. Mostly because I saw this and wanted some girlfriends to go with me.
|LITTLE WOMEN: The Musical||SCERA Showhouse II||Friday, 10/7/11 7:30PM MDT|
So it’s at the Scera theater in Orem, and I thought we could all meet there for the show, then go across the street (kind of) to The Chocolate, eat desserts and visit the night away. Tickets would be just under $15 (a little cheaper if you have student I.D.). What do you think? I’d love to have you come whether you’re a longtime blog friend or a quiet blog stalker. It’s a great way to take a break, make new friendships, and well, you know, eat chocolate. If it sounds fun to you and you’re available on 10/7, let me know in the comments, and I’ll send you more details. Feel free to invite a wing[woman], daughter, girlfriend, whatever. P.S. This invitation is null and void if you are a strange, predatory creep. Just to be clear. (Insert passive-aggressive smile here.)

Count me in on Girl’s Night! I’m not sure yet if I can make it, but I’ll sure try!
Oh that would be way fun! And, so far, it looks like the 7th is free for me. 🙂 Hooray! Keep me posted and make me commit, ok?
I love the SCERA, and Little Women. Too bad I live about a thousand miles away or I’d totally go!
I’m excited about the blog meme for Conference. And thank you for the reminder to think of questions I’d like to have answered.
Looking forward to conference at our house too! Daddy and I are trying to find a tent we can put up in the house for the kids…
I’m looking forward to teaming up with you!!
We are also really excited about Conference. My only concern is that I wont be awake for it! With baby due on the 5th, I’m pretty certain (whether he comes before or after conference) I’ll be struggling to keep my eyes open!!! Good thing they have so many ways for us to read and see it afterwards!
You can’t do Chocolate Friday night because I’m coming to town on Saturday for a week and was hoping for a second round of girls night out with you and Lisa. Oh, wait….I promised to go running with you instead….shoot. Can we meet up for a run and then go to Chocolate?
That sounds like so much fun! I saw Little Women at the Hale Center Theater a couple years ago and I loooooved it. I’m out of town on the 7th, though, so I can’t join in the party. Have lots of fun!!
I’d love for you to send me the info on the get-together…I’ll do what I can to see if I can make it.
How did I miss knowing about the book party? Clearly I’ve been spending too little time at the right blogs. Shucks. And it’s so nearby where I live, too. Oh, well, better luck next time.
(I can’t make it to Little Women. It does sound fun!)
Stephanie you always come up with some great ideas. Unfortunately, I will be out of town that weekend darn it! Have a great time, and that Chocolate place is REALLY good (I go there a lot) 🙂
It sounds like the perfect girls’ night! I don’t think I can make it, darn it! If my plans change, I will be there. Thanks!
I’m planning to come meet up for the show and chocolate. Sorry I didn’t reply earlier. I read the post on my phone and saved the date immediately, but I was a little lazy about commenting. I will be there, though! My hubby has already committed to stay home with the kiddos! 🙂 Yay for sweet hubbies.
