7 Reasons Why I LOVE MIA Board Meetings

Have you ever been to a bored meeting... I mean board meeting? Well, if you have and you were bored that is totally understandable. Most board meeting are a snooze fest but let me let you in on a little secret. Moms In Action board meetings are almost my favorite things to go to. Sonic, the Caribbean, and amusement parks are my top three but MIA board meetings are forth for sure.

First, the leader TCC is a riot and always knows how to have fun but yet we still have order and get things accomplished.

Second, the other ladies ( Promises, Hands Free, Thrills, Classic, Christine, Say Anything, Don't Make Us, and Tammi) are truly a fun mixed group. I can't even begin to tell you how much I have grown to love these women. They are all different but yet put them in a room together and the mesh like mash potatoes.

Third, I laugh so much that I burn enough calories to eat as much cake the next day as I want. And who doesn't like burning calories and eating cake?

Forth, We eat a pregnant lady's dream snack... chocolate pudding, cheese and apples. It is the perfect match... Dessert, Dairy and Fruit!!!

Fifth, You get a night off from the kids... enough said.

sixth, You get to make crafts sometimes... not really my thing but the other ladies are fantastic at it.


seventh, Do I even need to continue on...

Let me just add that if you ever feel like God is calling you to the MIA team, you will not be bored or disappointed. I love being a part of it and hope they don't kick me off any time soon! hee hee

I am very blessed to be working with some wonderful women who desire to see mom's free to fulfill the plans and purposes that God has for them. And why shouldn't we have fun doing that?!? :)

I had a really fun time last night - although I was a little tired...

It is great though - I love the mixture of people there. I really needed last night's enjoyment and laughter - it was refreshing for me! I have also been enjoying getting to know you more!

Let me just tell you that Not-So-Classic gave the biggest smile when I told him you were there. "Manders was there? Well then, you must have had a good time!" Yes, yes we did and it mostly because Manders was there 'cuz she's the coolest. ;)
