Today, I channelled my inner M-Stew (aka Martha Stewart) and had a bake sale.
I haven't had a bake sale since I was like 7.
Who remembers how to plan these things?? Do you realize all the little things you have to think of to have a bake sale go well. Christ. I didn't. I was a hot mess for the whole week.
Happy Pills abound!
I mean you know what happens..I'm gonna ask all of these people to help and they say they will, but then don't and you get there and you think man I have all this food, what if nobody comes, what if we have to take it all back home.... the typical OCD crazy momma drama.
Everything went off without a hitch.
We couldn't find a venue. The place we orginally wanted was completely against having us there-- Ruuuudee.. So I was like WHATEVA lady! And I found something different...
Thank GAWD for Wal-Mart. Really what would we do without the Redneck White House??
Saved our butts today and welcomed us with there big, open, discounted arms. Ole' Wally rocks my world.
We set up, had our bake sale and THE WHOLE TOWN SHOWED UP.
THE WHOLE STINKIN TOWN. Businesses came and gave us more baked goods and gift cards to give in the sale.
I was so happy. Giddy. Like click my heels happytimes!
We ended up having 4 very long tables of goodies, as well as 6 boxes CHALKED FULL of extras, and 3 Wal-Mart bags full of cookies and brownies.
We had so many cookies I could eat a cookie everyday for a year and still have some left.
IT WAS BANANAS.
When it was all over: We had 3 small and I mean SMALL beer flats with a few items.
Holla atcha girl!
I was so amazing with how people came out and gave and gave and gave. They were so generous. There where so many people who just gave and didn't take anything from the table.
After all this time of thinking people didn't give a rats's here.. they actually do.
My friend said something that I really believe.. it is said that it takes a tragedy for people to do something nice for one another. It really is. I am guilty of it just as much as the next guy.
But I am glad we could do what we could.
Our little bake sale made 1800.00 today. I'm pretty stoked and am thanking the baked gods!
