Random Picture & Story of the day..... So the last time I bought a dress like this was probably PROM and lets just say that there was A LOT more sparkle and A LOT more BLUE. (Yikes)
I bought this dress (it just came in the mail today and it looks amazing <3 ) because in September I am flying back to San Antonio (Where I call home) because some very nice, selfless people (wink wink you know who you are <3) nominated me for one of the Northside Independent School District Pillars of Character.
They choose a total of 6 each year and I was chosen as the Pillar of Trustworthiness. They include Caring, Citizenship, Fairness, Responsibility, Respect, and Trustworthiness.
I honestly had no idea what this even was but when I found out, I was completely blown away. They are paying for my husband and I to come back to San Antonio, all expense paid and they are honoring the 6 chosen at a Gala (generally around 700 people) where we have to speak. They are also coordinating for me to speak at my High School I graduated from (A LONG time ago). There will also be posters and videos of each of us displayed in classrooms in each school in the Northside Independent School District for the 2017-2018 school year and ironic my last year in the army (around 120 schools and over 106,000 kids). Why do I share this? Because I still can't believe I was chosen out of the over hundreds of thousands of alumni?! I am terrified at all of this fuss over me...just me. I am holding myself accountable from now until late September to get myself together and put my best foot forward. **Always Remember....Keep doing what you are doing, do something bigger than yourself, even when you think no one is watching.....they are. <3 #thanksforlistening
