Finalist for NEXT Magazine Woman of the Year 2011

About 4 weeks ago I was asked if I wanted to enter NEXT Magazines Woman of the Year.  It was suggested that I enter the Sports section.  I had two days to get my entry together and get the supporting documentation together.

After I had submitted my entry I pretty much forgot about it.  I didn't think I would have a chance but it was really fun just getting the entry together.

Well, today I went out and got the mail and there was a very large white envelope folded up in the letter box addressed to me.  Hmmm this looks interesting and I actually thought it may have been a certificate for an event I had entered.

Well I opened the envelope and stood there like a stunned mullet.  I just couldn't believe what I was reading.  I had to take it down for Shane to check it.

It told me I was a finalist.  I was one of the 25 finalists and that myself and one other were invited to the award ceremony to be held in Auckland on Oct 6th.

Wow, what an honor!!!!! Now to arrange flights and accommodation for a very exciting night.
