And now to begin our meeting blog. Due to the Thanksgiving holiday, we met one week earlier than our usual meeting time, but The Blake was still able to accommodate us and our ever-growing group! We are truly thankful they (not to mention Chef Rachel) are in our lives!

Say ladies, since this is a group for working women, what if someone approached you one day with a fantastic job offer of working 168 hours a week with no pay? Would you be surprised that a lot of women already do this? Watch our meeting intro video below to see what we mean.

SPOTLIGHT SPEAKER: Shari Crook, Senior Reverse Mortgage Adviser. While Shari may advise on Reverse Mortgage solutions by day, by night she is studying to be a hypnotherapist. The holidays can be super stressful, but Shari knows a way you can beat the holiday blues: meditation! Watch below for more info:

KEYNOTE SPEAKERS: Lisa Hayman,Chapman’s Florist. Have you always wished your tablescapes embodied Martha Stewart, but come out looking like a big ol’ mess? Have no fear; Lisa Hayman is here! Lisa has owned and operated Chapman’s Florist for almost 20 years, and while the shop has sometimes changed locations, Lisa’s quality of flowers and passion to serve has remained steadfast. Two things we took away from this past meeting: when it comes to decorating, your yard (especially if you have pine trees) and Dollar Tree is your friend! Lisa captivated the audience by carefully weaving a buffalo check print, wire-rimmed ribbon throughout an artificial pine branch, then stuffing it with REAL pine needles to give it that fantastic pine smell, along with carefully arranging various green aromatic trimmings among a metal antique milk bottle carrier, creating two gorgeous yet affordable focal points for your Thanksgiving (or anytime!) table.

ON THE MENU: Finger lickin’ fried chicken, red beans and rice, and steamed cabbage, along with a tossed green salad. Infused waters were on tap, and the meal was finished off with a cookies and cream pie!
