A "Suite" Time with the Columbus Blue Jackets

2012 has been absolutely crazy for Katie and Elaine, so we apologize for being slower to post than we would like. This story begins last year around Halloween when Limited Brands had a pumpkin decorating contest. Teams were instructed to decorate pumpkins then set them out for people to vote on the best. Votes were cast with money and all of the proceeds went to charity. Being part of the creative team, we were challenged to not only enter this contest - but win.

Well obviously we were more than up for the challenge along with the help of our friend/co-worker Krysti Kalkman. Our idea was to transform our pumpkins to look like they were walking down the runway of the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. We chose 4 outfits to mimic from the previous year's show for our pumpkins - and we WON! The "girls" looked great and we were able to raise a lot of money.

The winner of the contest got to choose a game for the Columbus Blue Jackets to sit in the Limited Brands suite. Not only did the winning team get to go, but 18 of our closest friends as well. They gave us the entire suite - it was SWEET. The Blue Jackets played the Carolina Hurricanes and won 5 to 1. Although this year, like most years, was more than a struggle for the Blue Jackets - the game we went to was super fun and very exciting!

Last weekend Katie and Elaine took NASHVILLE - check back soon to hear about our trip!
