Well, I survived the committee meeting! Everyone was nice and there wasn't much time for chit chat as there were a lot of things to discuss regarding the upcoming charity luncheon. The name of the luncheon/fundraiser is "It's A Bling Thing". Isn't that cute?? We brought up that maybe $300 is too much to ask people to pay for a luncheon......ya thinkk???!! Um, yes! I am embarrassed to even invite anyone with that price tag! They agreed that we could probably lower it to $250, but going lower than that would be impossible due to the cost of the luncheon itself which is being held at Mar-A-Lago (Donald Trump's home and private club). And Candace Bushnell is our guest speaker, and I peeked at her fee.....it is $30,000!!!!! Everyone start writing your books NOW!! Anyway, I think $200 would be reasonable in these tough economic times, because even after people come in THEN we are asking them to bid on auction items.
The outfit (I stuck to my guns, & yes there were women there in beaded Manolos. I think ONE other lady wore jeans! hee hee):
I love this jacket:
