Scenes from my weekend

You know you're in for a great weekend when it starts with flowers from your hubby...

and drinks with your friends...

Saturday was the big auction...
I don't typically take these pictures but I just loved loved loved my dress.

Saturday night was fun but my only complaint was that the entire auction was done via your phone. The sheets of paper where you fill in your paddle number and amount are long gone and have been replaced by iphones.   Now from a fund raising perspective this is a great way to increase bids/revenue.  From a guest perspective we spent the entire night checking our phones to see what to bid on and if we had been outbid and I kind of felt a little anti social.

I did however find time to switch hats with my friend...
and this was the only photo of the night I took because I had to keep checking my bids!!

We had a snow storm come through STL this weekend and Luna was one happy pup...
She sat outside like she was the keeper of the castle and just watched the snow fall.

I will admit I did not watch the Super Bowl, I saw Silver Linings Playbook (Loved it and Bradley Cooper totally deserves an oscar) but this commercial that aired during the game was phenomenal and brought tears to my eyes.  The beautiful Budweiser Clydesdales  live here in good ol STL...


  1. Lucky girl, those are beautiful flowers, the dress looks gorgeous and I was hoping I wasn't the only person crying because of Budweiser commercial.

  2. You looked lovely! I love your dress too. Smokin'!

    I cried during that commercial too.

    Luna is getting SO BIG! I forgot what you named her. She is too cute.

  3. Hottie! That sounds interesting about bidding!

  4. Love the dress Jill...and your dog is so cute! Snow back here last night too, really want it to be Spring now!

  5. Loving the dress. My dog loves to be outin the snow also playing and having such fun.
