More Lupus Walkin’

French Word of the Day: le comité (co me tay)- the committee

Rocio will be able to make all her ideas for next year’s Lupus Walk become a reality.  She and I have both been placed on the Lupus Walk Committee for 2013.

I went to the Lupus Foundation’s Chicago headquarters today to pick up my prize for raising money (again, thanks everyone!).  It’s a sweet tumbler:

I also got a purple bag for grocery shopping.  I’m all hooked up with my lupus gear.  I’m going with the “I got them because I’m spreading awareness” mantra, but really I just wanted that tumbler.

While I was picking it up, one of the women who works at the Foundation asked me what I do for a living.  I mentioned that I’m a meeting planner, which caught her attention.  She invited me to help plan next year’s event.  And the rest, as they say, is history.

I think this means you all have to actually attend next year.  I’m giving you a year’s notice instead of a week’s this time.

Although I have no idea what day it’s taking place.  I should probably figure that out before the first committee meeting, yes?
