Flash Forward Friday

I'm constantly trying to come up with ideas, themes and improvements for this blog and here's the newest.

Flash Forward Friday.

Friday's are the busiest days of my week. Class 9 - 12. Babysitting 12 - 3. Work 4 - 10. That means a lack of free time, and consequently - a lack of blogging time. But Friday's are important. They're a precursor to a weekend of fun and a week of classes/THON events and hopefully, interesting posts.

The idea of Flash Forward Friday is to give you an idea of what is coming up here over the next week.

This weekend's plans include a trip to State College with my best friend for a day of THON meetings and time spent with these fabulous people.

Following CCSG, Hana and I will be attending our first THON hoops game with some of our favorite guys. This also means seeing our favorite families - the Hills, the Goldens, the Allens. And for Hana, meeting our commonwealth morale team and their fabulous captain, Steph Fuss.

Then early sunday, we will be back to York just in time for Basket Bingo. Remember, bingo will be taking place at Penn State York on Sunday at 2:00. Doors will open at 12:30 for refreshments and a light lunch and bingo itself will begin at 2:00! Tickets are only $20 and include 21 games of bingo plus the opportunity to win some great door prizes. You can purchase yours at the door on Sunday! All proceeds from the event will benefit the Penn State IFC/Pan-hellenic Dance Marathon and the fight against pediatric cancer.

For those of you in the York area, you can also contribute to THON on Monday in a less traditional way - by donating blood. For each blood donation, $4 will be donated to THON in Penn State York's name and you as a donor, will receive a fleece blanket. So if you have the time - come out and see us so that you can say "Today I saved lives and helped to stop cancer." It has a good ring to it, huh?

On Tuesday, I will be featuring a blog post on Penn State York's two THON dancers and a few of my friends who are also dancing for 46 hours this February. The post will feature information on how you can send them dancer mail to encourage them to continue dancing and various items you can send that they may enjoy for the weekend.

On Wednesday, you can check back for interviews and information about our commonwealth morale team - Teach Me How to Fussy. This team has done some incredible things this year for me, for Kasey, for York and for the kids. I want to take the time to stop and say thank you for all of that hard work and effort. Plus, nothing is more important for THON weekend than some yellow love.

And what about Thursday? Well, at this point it will likely be a post on the upcoming Polar Bear Plunge but in my life, who knows what may happen over the week so at this point - it's too far in the forecast to say. But likely it will be about Lindsey and I, why we're plunging and what in the world we're wearing.

So while we're on the subject of the plunge...

You can also make a donation by seeing me in person!

As you can see, it's going to be an interesting and busy week! (In my opinion, at least) Hopefully you'll check back for lots of posts and photos over the next seven days. Also remember, if there is anything you'd like to see here - feel free to let me know in a comment or by email.
