The Summit, which was mostly a live simulcast from Colorado, focused on being an authentic person, and leading authentically. That, combined with the networking time, would have made for a pleasant day, but when the local leaders added in a few giveaways...well, that just made it fantabulous.
Shanda, who heads a MOPS group not too far from the one I attend, gave a very effective talk on conflict resolution. This was great for me to hear, because most of the time I would much rather
No, this is not a pen with a torture device strapped to it! It's a set of Sally Hansen LA CROSS tweezers, and I am so psyched about winning them. The little red thing is a flashlight!! The package says they have "diamond coated tips" and they are accesorized with a case that has a mirror. I don't know what "diamond coated tips" means, but anything with diamonds sounds good to me.
I have been, um, blessed with an overabundance of eyebrow hairs. Before I discovered this, I very much resembled Brooke Shields. From the '80s.
That's hot, folks.
I eventually found a great spa in town with a fabulous technician who did not rip the skin off my eyelids when I had them waxed. For awhile, I sported some really nicely shaped brows. Then this darn economy trouble hit, the spa closed, and I can't really afford the waxing so much.
I'm feeling the Brooke vibe again here lately.
If you live in an older home like I do, you know the lighting is not optimal for eyebrow grooming. So despite my best efforts, I am quite certain that I resemble a Brooke Shields/Groucho Marx love child.
Shanda, if you read this, please know how pleased I was that my name was drawn! I think perhaps it was more than "luck."
God must have looked down at me on Saturday and said, "Amanda, those are some cute shoes, but darnit you need to work on those eyebrows!"
If I can work on the brows, I can work on the authentic leading. People will take me more seriously. Right?
