FMSC

This year for my best friend's birthday she wanted to do something a little different. She invited 20 of her friends to volunteer for 2 hours last Saturday night.

We participated in FMSC - Feed My Starving Children.

It was SO MUCH FUN!!! As a whole we packed up 72 boxes of food, with 18 packages of food in each box. There were 6 different stations with around 8 people per station...chicken, veggies, soy, rice! That was the order of the assembly line. We had bag holders, sealers and packers as well. Each bag had to be weighed out and if it reached the "perfect weight" we would do a little cheer. It was for a great cause, the time flew by and it is something I would definitely do again!

Bestie and I!
don't you just love the hairnets!!
Billy didn't have hockey until 10:00 that night so even he got to come!
He kept our team entertained :)
love him!
working hard packing up the food
the whole gang

bestie and i out for dinner after packing food

some of the girls that went out after

I hope everyone is having a GREAT week!!!
Blogger was whack yesterday! I'll be on the prowl catching up today.


GLEE last night was awesome, AS ALWAYS!!
I totally missed it because I was watching a WILD hockey game.
The WILD take first priority in our home.
At least we got to watch GLEE commercial free ;)


My parents are coming over tonight for pizza and to watch Survivor, it has always been a family show for us. We each vote for someone to win and the winner takes home the pot of money. My girl is out, shucks....


My Christmas decoration pictures will be up on Monday!
Enjoy the rest of your week/weekends!!
Ciao lovelies!
XO

That's the best idea I have ever heard of for celebrating a birthday! My husband and I were honored enough to serve food at a local mission in our city the day before Thanksgiving. It was such a humbling experience, and gave me a huge hunger to serve more!

Rachel H. said...

What a fun way to do something for others and spend time with friends to celebrate a special occasion. I love this idea! And can't wait to see your Christmas decorations! :)

Jules said...

I think it’s really special and selfless that your friend volunteered her time and requested the same of her friends. That is a wonderful person in my eyes. I give you a ton of credit for doing it too. Some people just write a check to charity and that’s that (which is a great thing too, don’t get me wrong). I just think it’s wonderful when people donate their time to those in need to really make a difference. So sweet!
