All Dressed Up with SOMEWHERE to Go

Last weekend my office reserved a table at the Pullman Chamber of Commerce "Cabaret" live auction and dinner. We had a lot of fun dressing up, eating, people watching, and dancing. It was amazing to see how much money was thrown around that night. A dinner with the Cougar's Men's Basketball Coach Tony Bennett went for about $3500 dollars. While a dinner with the new university president, President Floyd, went for $7000. Ya, I know.

I just really liked this picture of Brian. He was so excited about the live band. All through the auction he was fidgety because he was so excited to see the band. He probably could have sat in that spot all night and watched the guitar player.
My dress was really great! It was a red evening gown I've had and never worn. I had my friend Merry remodel it into a cocktail dress. So she cut off the bottom so that the hem his just below my knees, and then used the excess to make sleeves. It was smokin'. At least that is what one old guy told me in not so many words. Unfortunately I never got a good picture of it. I also found some cute gold, strappy shoes to go with it for $6 bucks! So the whole outfit cost me $20.00, including earrings and a clutch. What a bargain shopper. I felt like a MOVIE STAR! Oh yeah, Brian was also very smokin' in his suit.
