Last night Navy Blue Dress and I went to this project showcase after school. You know how Navy Blue Dress and I are doing the banana bread project? Well, you got to choose what you did for you projects and the showcase was to see what other people had done for their project. We helped set up everything and afterwards people started setting their things up. The people at tables had more of a walk-around and see what each project is about and then there were also seven or so groups that presented in front of everybody. We had a lot of fun and some of the projects and people’s ideas were impressive and/or creative and fun. The only problem was that the presentations were taking too long and we had already been there for three hours not including school.
Overall, it was neat to see all of the projects and we also got extra credit for our class by doing this. We had no expectations when we went since we didn’t really know what to expect. I also had a problem, or something working in my mind because if we were to present or even be at one of the tables it seems so simple or plain to say that we make homemade banana bread, sell it door-to-door, and then donate the money. The problem is that it is so much more than that between meeting both rude and lovely people and everything that we’re learning while doing this. I didn’t know how we would be able to express that to anyone though and have them truly understand. I told Navy Blue Dress and she agreed with me and I said that we should do something bigger or something to show people its worth or even go along with our idea of selling things at school. We don’t know what to do but the awesome thing about our project is that it doesn’t ever have to stop.
If you have any ideas to help with this conundrum then it would help so much!

Okay, so I have the perfect idea for what Navy Blue Dress and I should do next for our banana bread project. The requirement for whatever our project could have been was that you are supposed to make a positive difference in your community. To add to what we are doing already, making and selling homemade banana bread from door to door on weekends, I had a thought that we could make something easy like cookies or muffins and tell people at school what we’re doing and ask them if they would like to preorder some. For instance, we could give them a flier explaining what we’re doing so that they can read that on their own and give to other people and we can ask them if they would like to pay for whatever amount of cookies or muffins and then tell them that they will have it brought to them at school on a certain day. Get it? I might not be explaining myself very clear but I want this to work and am excited but hope that this doesn’t overtake Navy Blue Dress and I like the picture of Woody above.
So far, as far as the food options go for people to “pre-order”, we have thought of cookies and muffins. We don’t want something that is hard to carry and keep nice like cupcakes and we figured that if we tried to sell banana bread that people may not know what it is and if they do they probably don’t want a whole loaf of it, even if it is a mini one. If you have any other ideas besides these two then we would greatly appreciate it and will respond back.
I hope I am not geting myself too excited over nothing because Navy Blue Dress and I are still just talking about this as a total up in the air idea. However eager and enthusiastic I am about this idea, I only want to do it if Navy Blue Dress wants to do it honestly and not only because I want to do it. Because otherwise it wouldn’t be as enjoyable. We would also have to be able to really work together because if one of use doesn’t have time to make it with the other person for some reason before the date to give the “customers” their goodies then we would just need to make sure that we are staying in constant communication and working together. Which that should really be no problem for us since we’re best friends and see each other every day for at least 5 hours.
Whether or not this idea of mine will go through or even if it does if it’ll be successful, Navy Blue Dress and I will still have tons of fun together making the banana bread and maybe even giving some to my mom to sell at her work. The picture below is me dancing with Navy Blue Dress when we make banana bread!
Go have some delicious food and dance. Be good humans.
