Time for Lyme

We attended the Time for Lyme dream Gala last night and had the night of our lives. It was so much fun! Of course, every great night isn't without a few mishaps (of which we had a couple) but overall it was just incredible. There was a silent auction, a live auction, dinner, dancing, performances...it was awesome.

Lou Diamond Philips was the recipient of the 2009 Time for Lyme Humanitarian award and let me tell you, Lou? Is one of the best performers I have ever seen. His speeches were funny, he was personable, approachable and took over the mic for the best rendition of La Bamba I have ever seen/heard.

I found a dress to wear Friday afternoon and I was *so* excited about it! It was absolutely beautiful and looked great on and it wasn't really something that I would normally pick so I was excited to step out of my fashion comfort zone a little. I actually felt like a rock-star walking in, I was escorted by my sister's boyfriend's best guy friends from high school so I walked in (looking fabulous if I do say so myself) with four handsome guys and STRAIGHT into a woman who had on the same dress as me. I'm not even kidding. And she was well over 50 years old. I could have died. I think I did die momentarily. My sister offered to go home and change with me but I really loved my dress and at that point it was a little too late. So? I had to spend the rest of the evening avoiding her. It was really hard work.

Other than that and a slight meal-misunderstanding the night was so fun. I got to meet LDP, got some awesome photos and danced so much that I have blisters on my feet today. I also stayed until the end to catch a ride home with my sister's boyfriend's mom and, being on the board, she got some leftover prizes so I came home with a crystal bowl (not exactly sure what I'll do with it, but HEY! PRIZE!), 7 dvds of various genres, guest napkins, a mini Longchamp bag (!!!!!!!!), and a gorgeous bracelet.

There are a couple of other stories from the night but they are totally deserving of their own post and blogger won't let me upload any pictures so those are coming too!

It's time for Desperate Housewives (a NEW one FINALLY!) but there is so much other good tv tonight that I'm really torn. I wanted to watch the Natalee Halloway story and wanted to try to catch In Plain Sight too... ahhh... decisions.
