Puttin' on the Ritz
Dan and I attended a fundraising event for a local Catholic University in town at the Ritz Carlton for his company. We had a fabulous table of people full of personality and stories. You know I love me some talking to strangers. I told Dan I should open a business where I go to galas with awkward business men and teach them how to make conversations. Then, I decided against it because it sounds like an escort service and that's pretty illegal.
I HATE doing my make-up and hair. I had my neighborhood hair lady color, cut, and blow dry my hair and I actually had to go out and buy eye make up. This was followed up with a phone call to Melissa. It went a little something like this:
Me: Do I put the eye liner on before or after the eye shadow?
Her: Are you kidding me?
Here we are in our Gala attire. Dan is sporting his tux and me, well I am in the ONLY formal dress that Melissa and I could find in our town that would fit me. No kidding, I wish I was.
