Today is the Day!

Well, it finally is here. Tonight is the night for the Austin Under 40 Awards Gala!
I am so excited that my friend Erin is flying in from San Diego for this occasion - it is going to be a blast! I still don't know what I'm going to wear, but I think it's safe to say I've cornered the "little black dress" market.
The only thing is I am starting to get a little bit nervous because it seems there are a few people who think I have a chance at winning something tonight, and I don't want to let them down. But - I stand by my statement that I am really proud just to be a finalist because I AM really proud just to be a finalist.
The AU40 people said we all need to come up with a 30-second acceptance speech just in case, but I'm just going in looking forward to meeting lots of great people and having a nice time. Anything else is just syrup on the ice cream. (OK - bad example. Those go hand-in-hand in my world.) : )

So when do we know? Don't keep us in suspense! Are you going to de-mask for the gala event?

MMMMM. I'm the same way. Hershey's syrup on chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream....

I know you'll have a good time tonight. I won't even need to send positive thoughts, but I'll be doing it anyway. Can't help myself.

Good luck. Hope you have your speech ready...and you'll have to ditch that mask !
