|All dolled up for the night|
With 300 people, 90 Silent Auction lots, 14 Live Auction Lots, 6 chefs, 4 wine bars, 30+ wines being poured and this being a first time event, I kept calling this event the first of my two babies to be born in the month of March. And let me tell you, after a full day of set up on Friday and Saturday and then the event on Saturday night, my body felt like I had given birth. I was just about crawling on Sunday morning.
I do not recommend chairing an event, much less a wine auction with incredible wine being poured, when 9 1/2 months pregnant. Nothing is worse than being in heels when toting around 30 extra pounds and then not being able to drink a glass of champagne to celebrate at the end of the night and numb the pain of your feet. I did make the committee promise to a rockin' post-baby, post-party. None the less, we really enjoyed ourselves and this has been the reason you've heard next to nothing from me over the last month!
Here's a few pics - okay, maybe its just me bragging but I'm pretty stinkin' proud!
