Holiday greetings blog friends! Almost the middle of December already and I hope all your holiday preparations are falling into place. Now, onto what you've come around for......the weekly drink to be shared with the T-gang.
Last Tuesday evening was the Bakersfield Bucklist Bunnies first fundraiser. The event was held at a Restaurant and wine bar. The dinner was a 5 course meal with a wine paring with each course. There was also a silent auction of some gorgeous gift baskets, and even a side chair. Also a nice fashion show put on by one of our sponsors.
My really good friend Cathy went with me
The food was very rich.....but tasty....this is what was left of my fillet. We also had shrimp, lobster bisque (it was more like a stew....) and there was one more entrée and a dessert, but I can't remember what they were. I don't think I finished one course..........and still left FULL!!
Neither Cathy, or I, were impressed with the wines......so I drank a lot of water, plus I still wasn't feeling very well. But this even was planned and paid for long before I got sick.....LOL
The blue raffle tickets were for............
The Grand Prize
All I can say is: Sure glad I went cause it became a "winner, winner...chicken dinner" YEP! I won the grand prize!
Sunday night was an other event I paid for before getting sick, so I went. It was Paint Nite. This is how they set the rooms up for the painters......rather close....
but I still found a spot for a glass of wine.....LOL
The beginnings of my canvas......This is NOT the type of event to "learn" how to paint...exactly.
Looking down the table I was sitting at.
So this is what I ended up with.....a representation of what it was supposed to look like......ROTFLOL!!
Of course I had to prove that I was the one behind this flying purple elephant........LOL
Now it is time for me to get busy on some errands, still early Monday here so I'll link up with the T-gang a little later.
