Besides the tragedy that struck our country 9 years ago on September 11th, I must say that it was a good day in 2010. I entered the foyer of the Grand Ball room on the second floor of the Renaissance Waverly Hotel to see a sea of children with their faces painted and a army of Veterans searching the buffet to fill their plates. I remembered where I was on this day 9 years ago, I smiled at the soldiers and kept it moving with my makeup case in my right hand, director's chair in my left hand, to the Tyndall Meeting Room to set up for my launch. Adrenaline flowing through my body. I was a little nervous, searching for pictures in my head to inspire me on how I would do my makeup. Don't you just love to see a hairstylist with a jacked up weave and she hands you her business card? I laugh at the irony.
Anyway, the launch was a success! I didn't get a chance to sit down! But I did do my wobble and someone finally taught me how to "Dougie".
I was amazed at how many women waited for me to do their makeup. The event started at 4pm and I didn't have a chance to get a glass of water. By the time I did, the cooler was on "E"! grrrrr.
I love how when I don't expect things, the BEST shows up; I chose to live the rest of my life this way...I just wished that everyone that RSVP'd for event would have showed up. I would have loved to share the experience of that day with them; from the Jell-O shots, to the samples of a variety of mouth-watering cupcakes, the mini-makeovers, all the way to the sounds of Deejay IV on the ones and twos that had EVERY body rockin'!
