First of all, the event was AMAZING! I have to say, Shawn and I did it and we went out with a BANG! We have both decided to pass the baton on next year, as this was our 3rd year. Everything, well almost everything, went perfectly! I'll share more of that later ~ but to my friends that read this blog, that were at the event, I will say this:
The dove, IN CHRISTIAN CULTURE, signifies HOPE
Y'all should get a good laugh out of that -- I'm not trying to be funny, but like I said, I'll explain more later!
Well, as promised, my martini party is this Friday! I have been working SO hard getting the house ready. Chad has been out of town and so I've been able to really get at it. I can't wait until he gets home, because he does help out a lot and never complains. He does require some 'nudging' but he gets it done.
Here is my guest bedroom - I wanted to go for a beachy, dreamy feel and I think I got it:
I'm so happy with the way this room turned out. I do have fabric for a duvet and dust ruffle that are brown toile, but I have to wait until I see my Mom -- too scared to sew it and ruin the fabric!

This is my final week of preparations - to all my friends that read this blog and haven't heard from me in about 4 mths, well, we've been planning. Seriously planning. With the economy the way it is, it has been difficult to get money donated for the event. We've had no problem getting services and decorations, photographers, etc ~ really that has been incredibly easy. We've had more auction items donated then we know what to do with - well, we know what we are going to do with them, but that just creates more work for some very tired girls!
