Who Let the Girls Out???

"Hello? Your husband called, and he said to buy whatever you want......" *****The Divas and their helpers/bestest gal-pals. L-R Tam, Trish, Nicky & Andrea****

That was the greeting on the back of our auction cards last night at the ladies night in..... Who Let the Girls Out was a benefit auction for the Susan G. Komen 3-Day that my girls Nicky & Trish are participating in later this summer.

I eagerly purchased my tickets in advance, as did 49 other lucky folks. All proceeds go the the nearly 2K that each participant needs to raise in order to take part in the 3-Day event. A huge rally of support came from local merchants and specialty businesses. There was an adorable barista, pulling coffees for everyone, fab deserts by a local restaurant and some super talented chocolatiers, massages by four, count them four massage therapists, a couple of aestheticians doing brow & lip maintenance, the lovely ladies from Scentsaria lavishing love and hand massages, and several vendors with absolutely fabulous wares who were donating product and proceeds. Not to mention the absolutely fabulous gift baskets- some worth $400!!!!! (a gift certificate for a session with me was paired with some fab scrapbooking tools and a certificate to a local frame & gallery shop!)

Everyone looked gorgeous- and had a ma-va-laous time!

Miss Cindy was there too! She's a para-educator at our kids' school. I kept falling into her amazing eyes and brilliant smile as we talked last night- she was kind enough to oblige me and let me take her portait. She's absolutely stunning- and proves once again.... that "Bald IS beautiful!" A kind and gentle spirit- bravely fighting the good fight. Keep it up sister!

I had so much fun working and playing last night- well done ladies- well done! :) xoxo D
