Nepalese Pop Up Dinner Fundraiser!

So I had the absolute pleasure of attending a Nepalese Fundraising Dinner at the Waiting Room on the first Saturday of the month!

As a complete novice to Nepalese cuisine, I couldn’t wait to get my mitts into the wonderfully warming south asian menu – and for a good cause, too! Krishna and Roshani, the selfless human beings behind The Suvadra Children’s Foundation teamed up with residents, The…

March 9th - Day 68

Yesterday, I got out and about with my mom. And the reason was to go get brownie mix. Because tonight at church, we are having a fundraiser bake sale. Hot dogs, chips, and bunches of cookies. Chili, onions, anything you could want. We had such a fantastic selection of snacks and goodies. I myself ate WAY too much. But it was delicious.

Some friends invited us to a rib dinner fundraiser at the last minute.

So I left the couch, blankets and dogs, put on real clothes (including a bra!) and we went out in the rain….all for meat-on-the-bone which I do not eat. ;)

The time with friends we don’t see often was fun and worth it though!

anonymous asked:

"Like, maybe an argument at a department store, and gifts left for each other on bookshelves. Maybe another argument in a hallway while whispering etc etc." ARE THESE THINGS HAPPENING!?

The first one already did – but yes. 

You can also look forward to…

-awkward fundraiser fancy dinners
-dirty phone calls in cars
-drunk shenanigans 
-lots of yelling
-heartbreak

come a little closer // grace and victor

His heart raced as he saw the young blonde, standing amongst social elites at her parents’ fundraiser dinner. She looked elegant, exquisite - a true catch. She was what he wished for Indigo. He would mold Indie to his satisfaction, Grace serving as a perfect model. He straightened his blazer, adjusted his tie, and worked through the crowd. If he could catch even a conversation with her, he’d be one step closer towards his goal. It was like a predator stalking his prey, and eventually, Victor found himself standing right in front of Grace, his back straightened, his demeanor soft. He had to win her over. It was crucial. He looked poised, holding himself to a certain standard, a dazzling grin set on his lips. Casting a glance over the crowd, he locked the gaze of Mrs. Hudson, giving her a respectful nod, before returning his attention to the woman in front of him. “Hello, beautiful. Care to dance?”

I looked nice today I guess. People looked at my face for longer than I looked at theirs. A french lady asked me if I knew where an art gallery was. I said YES and probably told her to go in the wrong direction. Its all because i wore shoes that go click click click click. 

Then tonight i went to a fancy fundraiser dinner. I won a prize and got to take home the center piece plant. that’s the kind of thing i always win at. i knew the envelope was going to be under my seat before i even looked.

Preston’s Blog: Lions on a Boat

Joni and I departed from Germany yesterday, but are still reminiscing of the sights we saw and the people we met. While we were there, we attended “Lions Boat Night,” a fundraiser dinner put on by the Lions of Germany. The boat set sail at sunset. During our excursion through the waterways of Berlin, we chartered a new Leo Club. The evening with a spectacular fireworks display that was synchronized to Strengthen the Pride.

Traveling all across the globe has allowed me to meet so many wonderful members of the Lions family, and in a few weeks Lions from all over will be coming to Hawaii for our 98th International Convention. I am looking forward to seeing you all there! Let’s end this year strong and continue to Strengthen the Pride!
