This is for the 3-Day Team....
I have a few people from the 3-day team who read the bloggy and keep up with my life in general. I mean, why not...my blog is good stuff.

insert cheesy grin here.

If you aren't aware, to walk during the 3-day, you need to raise a minimum amount of money to be able to walk. The guidelines state that if you don't raise the money, you need to kick in the rest. With a tight economy, the money you might have to kick in can be equal to a tank of gas or a house payment.

We did a great job of raising money last year (well over $30,000, by the way). One of those ways was through a silent auction that we did on a blog. You can see the blog here.

We were the first 3-day team to do an online silent auction using a blog. It was a huge success.

One of our featured items was a 1-week stay in a timeshare in Honduras. This item was purchased by one of my co-workers.

Well, that co-worker just got back from his 1-week stay and said it was the best time he had ever had. It wasn't crowded. It was warm. He even read an entire book during his visit--something he said he hadn't done in a long, long time.

So, Angels, my co-worker wants you all to know that he had no buyers remorse for spending $1000 on the trip to Honduras.

WOW, that is awesome. Are you doing the auction again?

I plan on participating in Quilt Pink this year. I wanted to last year but I was pregnant and sick, and didn't think I could sit in front of a sewing machine all weekend.
