If you want honesty, I will tell you that I already knew I was awesome. But now I have cold, hard proof: I was featured as the Awesome Woman of the Month on the Girl Scouts of Western Washington website! It's true. You can read all about it here.
But wait, there's more! If you are in the Seattle area, are you ever in for a treat! There's a fantastic festival that's starting up for girls: GirlFest! And the Girl Scouts of Western Washington were kind enough to give me some tickets to give away!
Back up. What is GirlFest? Here's a brief explanation.
Have you ever thought, “I sure wish there was one whole day where I could learn more about what I like and who I am?” If you’re a girl (or you know one!) and you live in Washington, then, boy, will you be excited to know that such a day exists! It’s called GirlFest, and it’s a daylong celebration of everything cool about being a girl!
GirlFest is October 20, at CenturyLink Field Event Center from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.!
Perhaps you’d like to study cool stuff under a microscope, or learn more about being a news reporter. Maybe you would like to climb a rock wall, play a guitar or make your own rocket? Learn about T-shirt design, car maintenance, the environment, sample yummy local food and even hang out with some horses! You can even shake your tail feather to hip hop dance lessons and super-cool concerts from snazzy stars, like Savannah Outen! Plus, get face painting, caricatures, nail stickers and henna tattoos. If you can dream it, you can find it at GirlFest! Buy tickets here.
But wait, there's more! The Girl Scouts of Western Washington have offered up a few tickets for me to give away! If you are in the Seattle area and would like to put yourself in the running, simply leave a comment on this post OR tweet me @cakespy using the hash-tag #girlfest saying what your favorite Girl Scout cookie is! The giveaway will close one week from today, on Sunday, September 23 at noon EST and the winners will be contacted afterward.
