Hello Good People!
Happy New Year to each of you. ThatKellieGirl apologizes for being MIA, but I’ve been in #weddingworld! :-) Ever since January 1st, I have been in overdrive planning for my upcoming nuptials. I’ve had some challenges with vendors, deleting names off the guest list, and thinking about how much we are going to spend! But deep inside, I feel like everything is falling into place, and that it will be a life-changing event. And to see family and close friends step up to show their love and support has meant so much to me. Words can’t express the love and endearment I have for each of these folks. I am totally excited about this next phase in my life. :-)
So if you were like me, I was very disappointed about the Inauguration ticket snafu. I was ready to purchase my tickets on the designated release date. So I was dismayed that the tickets were released a day before. Even with an early release, I would purchased tickets if I wouldn’t have been on an airplane returning from Ohio!!! Then when I received an invitation to purchase parade tickets, originally sold for $25 now $250, that just added insult to injury. *smh* Even though ThatKellieGirl might not be at an official Inaugural Ball, there are still some great and affordable events in order to celebrate the inauguration of President Barack Obama. So check out these events below.
And for those who want to dress-up, star gaze or ball out, check out these lists of Inaugural Balls here and here and here.
And remember, in honor of MLK Day, sign-up for the National Day of Service. There are service events all weekend.
Peace, Love & Blessings, ThatKellieGirl :-)
