Ramblings

When I first started this blog, I hardly posted pictures. Now I have a hard time writing a post withOUT pictures! I'll go ahead and try! ;)

I'm very excited to start this new Bunco group! We have all 12 people, but if anyone out there is still interested, I could list you as a sub ... just let me know! For years I have talked about making more time for girlfriends and I am excited to be making time for that in my life!

For Mother's Day this past weekend, we drove down to Castledale to surprise Taylor's mom with lunch (thanks Kacie for the idea!) It was fun to be with family even if it was just for a little bit. Taylor got me a great book that I is one that I wanted to read (go Taylor!) and Aubrey picked out a necklace and earrings to match a new dress I have (go Aubrey!) I'm so lucky to have such an awesome family!

I can't believe this school year is almost over! I have PTA convention this week (two day training down at BYU) which really made me realize how close we are! Oh, anyone wanna help babysit?!? Color me a procrastinator! Next year this time I think I will be sweating it, since I'll be going in as PTA president ... this year it's all training.

(I told you this was ramblings, right?!?) We've decided that we want to do more camping this summer. We are strapped for cash, but camping is a cheap, fun way to get out ... any suggestions? Or if you wanna go with us, that would be fun too! The more the merrier!

Okay, that's enough rambling for now, I've got things I need to do!

Bunco anyone?

A little while ago, I was invited as a sub for a friend's bunco game (thanks Emmalia!) It was so much fun! I've had a couple of friends mention they might be interested in doing a bunco group, so I'm asking you ... if you're in the area, would you be interested in being part of a bunco group with me?

Bunco 101 -

Bunco is a dice game (very easy to pick up), but basically the whole idea is a chance to get together with girlfriends each month to eat, gab, play and gab! There are 12 people in the group. You each take turns hosting the group and purchasing prizes. Everybody puts money each month into the pot. This is the money that buys the prizes.

My friend's bunco group members put $10 a month into the prize pot. There are 4 prizes each month ($50, $30, $30, $10). She gave out gift cards. We could stick with something similar or do slightly less (economy and all!) Let me know what you think.

Your commitment would be:
  • Attend bunco party each month or have a sub there. (You really need 12 people to be there!)
  • Host 1 bunco party a year (you provide dinner & snacks and have tables and chairs set up)
  • Contribute money each month for the prize pot (we could decide what's a good number)
  • If you choose to quit the group, help find someone to fill your spot
I think it could be lots of fun ... let me know!

P.S. I found a clip on youtube.com about Bunco ... this could be us (minus the drinking of course!)
