There are certain people in my life that bring out the best in me. They are people that I laugh with, share my hopes and fears with, look forward to seeing, inspire me, encourage me, are genuine, ambitious, and are all around nice people who find the fun in everything. Some of those people in my life are the people that I worked with when I was the graduate assistant at the University of Nebraska at Omaha. My friend Staci (who worked with me) and I decided to have a small event to gather a few of those people for dinner and drinks over the weekend because we all have crazy schedules and don't get to see each other as much as we used to. It was a blast getting the old gang together - I truly feel like the best version of myself when I am around them. It made me reflect on how I need to seek out people who make me feel that way and make it a top priority to spend as much time as possible with them.
Staci and I decided to hand out prizes at the dinner which included glow sticks and silly straws for everyone. We also had a raffle at dinner for some bigger prizes like pink hair extensions and 4ft blow up whale. Here is a video of how excited everyone is for the raffle at dinner. (I highly suggest doing a raffle at your next event - you can get the raffle tickets and prizes at the Dollar Tree- one of my favorite places!)
Not only did we have fun with all of our dollar tree goodies we had great conversation. I love spending time with these people because they are quality peoples-
