Like a Kid in a Candy Store

If you know me at all, you may be aware of these two things about me:

1. I like to organize, especially other people.
2. I like to plan and organize events.

Okay, so maybe you've known me for years and never knew that, but now you do. Anyway, I am in the process of planning my boss's inauguration, and decided I needed some more event planning resources in my library of books. So I picked up "The Complete Guide to Successful Event Planning" by Shannon Kilkenny with companion CD Rom.

This morning I popped in the CD ROM.




This is an amazing resource...the organizer in me is giddy with excitement! Checklists, Budgets, Event Task Status Reports, Room Set Ups, Speaker's a plethora of reusable resources right at my finger tips!! Granted, many of these things I have used in the past with events, but have them easily accessible pdf OR Word format so I can tweak them to my liking...this is almost more exciting than reading the book itself!

Timelines. Room Designs. Food and Beverage Servings.

I feel like I've just overdosed on sugar at Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory or something...bliss...
