Farewell Soiree is the Understatement of a Lifetime!

Tuesday, June 10, 2014

Patti, Sarah, Lizzy and Lauren threw me one heck of a farewell soiree this past Wednesday night!!!!! I cannot thank them enough for all they did.  Delicious food, beautiful decor, fancy wines, a custom memory book for guests to sign and so much more!

Spending 29 years in a city sure does get you a plethora of friends from various groups.  Having sat on a dozen or so boards, been in a sorority at OU and working at the largest Methodist Church in the state of Oklahoma I have met a few people along the way.  I was ASTONISHED by the number of people that showed up.  The evening was beautiful. I was flattered/honored and to be honest am still a little stunned.  Even the fabulous Fran from ionOklahoma magazine came to capture the evenings memories :-).

Check out these fab pics!

Here are a few...
My parents are SO silly...which is why I love them so much!

My grace filled, loving boss - Marsha!

Every party needs FABULOUS Clay and Graham :-)

My work besties made it for the fun!

Hoping the Pekera's make a trip to their home state {Illinois} soon!

Two of my barre3 favs....Ashley & Shomari Wilson

St. Luke's Crew

College friends....

Megan and Susan <3

One can always find inspiring treasures within the Mellow home...

Most of all I loved having my mommy there! Gwen is quite the lady.  She's sweet, she's funny, she's witty...and most of all she's a proud momma that loves me.  I am a pretty independent person and she lives in a different state so my mom hasn't met most of my friends. I think there were more people in line to talk to her at the party than me!!!  I love my mom and was so glad that she was able to meet so many of my dear friends at one time.
My hot momma and me!

Again, I am so thankful to my beautiful hostess for making this possible...

Who throws one bad @$% party?!?! The women photoed above!!!

Am I really moving?

Everything is happening SO fast! It took me almost an entire year to put this plan into motion yet the last few months have felt like a speeding roller coaster.  Above all I am thankful...
  • thankful God set the perfect timing up for this move
  • thankful for not one but TWO ever supportive mommas (Gwen and Wynde you two always put happiness in my heart)
  • thankful for all the friends/family that understand how CRAZY things are and continue to be
  • thankful for the most amazing boss...can I get a What What for MARSHA!?!?
  • thankful for the women that thought enough of me to suggest they host a going away party to give me the opportunity to bid farewell to 29 years of OKC friends...Patti, Sarah, Lizzy & Lauren sure know how to PAR-TAY!
  • thankful to have an amazing successor to train at St.Luke's - yay Beth YAY! 
  • thankful to the mean girl at work that is a constant reminder that no job is perfect and people are always going to hate...I'll always love you even when you hate me #ItsInMyDNA ;-)
  • thankful to the new friends I'm about to make
  • thankful to lululemon for posting a goal setting portion of the website so that I would begin working on my dreams more aggressively 
  • thankful for my mom's flexibility in planing and taking off work to make my dreams come true
  • thankful to all who encourage me to Seize The Day {love you Bob Long & many others}
...and most of all thankful to my Lord and Savior!

29 will always be a year that I crushed a HUGE goal...a goal to try a new adventure and just go for it! In 7 short days Chanel and I will be in our 24th floor Chicago dream apartment!!!!
