A Night at GOLD

Saturday night we attended GOLD, the annual auction/dinner for the Catholic Jr/Sr. High School in town. It is always a fun time. Who doesn't enjoy getting all dressed up and having a date night with their spouse? This was the 13th year they have held this and it gets better every year. This was only our 3rd year attending (since we were in Texas and Omaha before that). I really enjoyed this year because I helped my good friend Sami with setting up the Silent Auction and contributed a centerpiece. Each year 50 or so people donate a centerpiece for the auction. This year's theme was Winter Ice so there was alot of blue, silver and white. There were some gorgeous ones and I was very pleased that the one my mom and I made actually sold. :) I purchases one as well and I love it. I am just itching to get out my Christmas decorations so I can display my new centerpiece. Hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Gotta love it when guys wear tuxes. So handsome!

The centerpiece I purchased. There are 2 of the large candle holders. Very simple but I love it.
