Beautify CNMI's First Anniversary
I admit it! I look for any excuse or opportunity to get dressed up on this island. I wear scrubs five days a week and I am usually in a t-shirt and jeans during the week so it was nice to get dressed up. Missy and I went to Beautify CNMI's anniversary fundraiser dinner at Aqua resort last night and had a blast. All you can eat seafood buffet, yummy dessert, and great company . . . what more can you ask for?
Its kind of funny how I found out about Beautify CNMI. I was new to the island and just started blogging. I came across Angelo's page and noticed some really great pictures of the recyclable christmas tree ornaments. I had seen those Christmas tree ornaments in Garapan but forgot to take pictures.
Anyways, I saw them on Angelo's page and "borrowed" them for my blog to show my friends and family back home. A day later I get a message from Angelo saying how those pics look "familiar"! I was so embaressed! But before that incident I use to read up on Beautify CNMI on his webpage and became interested in ways to be involved in the community.
To make a long story short, I attended a Beautify CNMI Micronesia Challenge meeting in November. It was then when I first met Angelo, Cinta, Bree, MIke Tripp . . . Just like Cinta said during her speech last night, we have made so many good friends through Beautify CNMI.
During the slide show they showed alot of groups that participated during the first year. When the SDA Church picture was displayed up on the screen Missy and I screamed! Really loud! Louder than I thought! Gotta represent you know!?
It was good to see some of my online blogger friends there last night. Steve and his wife, Miwa were so cute. Also Walt and Captain Carl were there too. It is amazing to know that there are over 50 local bloggers in Saipan. Before I came out to Saipan I would try and google stuff on Saipan. There was very few information out there. I think that if I would have seen the We Love Saipan website before I came out here it would have answered alot of my questions about life on Saipan.
Anywho, we had great night=)
