Oh What a Night!

What?  You want photos?  Well, you’ll have to wait.  I was so jazzed up to get to the gala that I skipped out of the house without my phone or my camera.  There was an event photographer, and there is one of those fun photo booth cards with four photos of me with some friends, but “we” have to wait patiently until those are scanned so I can share them. 

There’s a shot of the fabulous venue.  The Boar’s Head is proud of their new Pavilion, as well they should be.  Please click on the photo above for more information, photos, etc. 

That’s the closest photo I can find to my dress.   It’s already at the cleaner’s, but when I get it back, I’ll see about getting you a photo.  It’s my new favorite LBD, and I’m so glad several of you pushed me to try sleeveless.  Pity you can’t see the back…  It’s a slight cowl of the delicate sheer fabric at the neck. 

Heck, I had fun just watching the fashion show.  Out of over 150 women (my guess-timate?), no two dresses were the same, even though I bet more than 100 of them were the standard LBD – little black dress.   The men were dapper too.  More than a dozen guys donned tuxes and looked so handsome, not that the Knight and the other suited dudes were shabby!

They don’t read my blog (that I know of), but I have to shout out to our awesome fundraising co-chairs and their committee, and my fellow board members.   All of the blood, sweat and tears were worth it.  It was a wonderful event, especially since it was our first casino night.   The Knight and I are already looking forward to next year’s!

So, how was your weekend?

    Your dress is fabulous and I bet you knocked some socks off when you dropped your wrap!! I’m so glad The Knight went along.

    My weekend started with a bad attitude (as you know) but ended absolutely fabulously! Amazing what sunshine will do for your attitude. I drove around on Saturday with the top down, the sun beating on my head, and the radio blaring! I got some crafting done, a new skirt made and made progress on my knitting projects! I’m a happy girl!! g

    Oh yeah, I want photos! What did you end up doing for shoes?
    You can’t beat a little black dress. Glad you and the Knight had a super evening.

    PS: You’d be amazed at the people who read your blog but don’t comment. I read someplace only a very small percentage comment. I bet all your friends read it!

    Looks like you had a fabulous time! I love the dress you chose ~ I can see that dress on you – sexy and stylish 🙂 So did you take any of your hand knit shawls? I debate on that as I never want to leave mine at a coat check for fear it might disappear….

    Nice dress! Our weekend went a little like this…Husband had to work all Friday night from 6pm til 7 am Saturday. We slept late into the afternoon, getting up only to eat. Sunday I ditched church to spend time with the girlfriends, which is a rare thing on a church day. Monday was errands and appointments and a home cooked meal!

  21. Sandy says:

    Lovely dress and I bet you looked stunning. Glad to hear that you had a good time.

    My weekend was quiet and I was ready for that. I stayed home, listened to some music and watched a few movies, knitted. Just spent the time quietly alone (after work on Saturday morning, of course). I needed it.
