Big Brother Big Sister Organization

June 26, 2014

(Update four hours after original posting because I didn’t even SPEAK of the big old burger in my lunch picture! Just pretended that it didn’t even happen!)


Recently I have become a Big Sis in the Big Brother Big Sister Organization. If you haven’t read a blog that I have written about it yet, well then let me introduce you to Samone! She is 12 years old, and immediately, I felt like we were a great Match!








We spent the month of May getting to know each other, then she went out of town for the month of June, so I am excited for her to get back so we can have some summer fun together!!



Big Brother Big Sister does a lot of fundraising throughout the year, but they only ask the “Bigs” to participate in one Big Event each year, and that’s Bowl For Kid’s Sake! Of course, we can be involved in as much fundraising as we want, and this one isn’t even required, but I thought it would be a great way to get a little more involved with the organization.

I have a team of six that will be bowling on July 19th to help raise money for Big Brother Big Sister!

I am trying to raise $900! So far, I have raised $155.

Last night, Big Brother Big Sister hosted a dinner for new “Big’s” that have signed up and been matched with a “Little” in the last sixth months. There were about 30 new “Bigs” at the dinner, and around 8 employee’s from the organization. We all took a seat and introduced ourselves to our neighbor, and the 8 employee’s seated themselves amongst the new “Bigs”. It was a great opportunity to meet other Big’s and ask them about their “Little”, and also have an opportunity to talk to some of the staff, who are also ALL “Bigs”. We had a good time sharing stories about our new relationships that have already started to grow and share with each other what we had spent time doing with our “Little”.

The dinner was at Rye, which I had not been to before, and our meal was awesome! Everything was served Family Style, which was a really nice way for every to bond even a little bit more.

I ate a LOT of points yesterday, but hopefully I’ve been active enough this week to burn off a few of those consumed calories!

I didn’t actually get any real exercise in yesterday, but we were CRAZY busy at the Food Truck yesterday and we literally never stopped from 11:00 until after 2:00! I did get in a doggie walk.

Here are yesterday’s eats…..



Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal


Un-pictured Coffee with Frothy Skim Milk
