Can't Stop The Serenity 2011

Dolli and I at CSTS
Ever since my best friend, Dolli, moved closer to the Charlotte area, I've wanting to bring her to a Charlotte Browncoat event. So it happened that CSTS fell on a day that both our husbands had the day off and could watch the kids, so we decided to go together.

The event was in a new place and was earlier in the day, so I figured being a little late would be okay. But we ended up being later than we had figured because some car trouble.

Because of it we missed the costume contest and Mikey Mason performing, which was a huge bummer. But we did get to see some of the movie. We opted to sit out of some of it because we got some snacks and didn't want to crunch them loudly in the movie.

After the movie was done, they had a 2nd costume contest that I ended up being the only entry for so therefore winning. From there they had the raffle drawing - which I put all my tickets into one box, and didn't win. But it was okay since the money all went to charity.

I got to talk to some friends, introduce Dolli to them as well as Dolli getting to talk to the UNCC gaming group since she and her husband are looking for people to play table top games with. We also browsed the tables of things for sale and lamented our lack of extra money to buy the shinies. From there, we got some dinner at Arby's and then it was back to her place to I could get my car and go home.

It was a great day, mostly because I got to hang out with my best friend without our toddler underfoot. The event was good, though I wish I would have known the times things were going to happen beforehand. Though we couldn't really have guessed that we were going to have car troubles.

I'll look forward to next year and will make sure that we get there closer to the beginning!
