What a weekend!

Joe and I had an amazing weekend.
Whirlwind so to speak.
Two major events.
Friday night, the annual Alabama State GOP Dinner with speaker
He is a fantastic speaker and was signing copies of his latest book.
We really enjoyed ourselves and we were honored to attend.
We met so many of the
candidates for 2010.
You know that my favorite candidate has announced her run for Governor.

My Aunt Kay Ivey!
I hope all fellow Alabamians will visit her website and give her your vote. (and donations)

Saturday night, the annual Shelby County GOP dinner

As most of you know, I chaired the silent auction for our Shelby County annual dinner this year. I had so much fun and the auction made exactly what we had "budgeted." We were very pleased.
It was even better as we had such good friends there this year. I have been so blessed to meet such great people. Matt, Freddy, Jeff, and so many others that I get the honor of working with daily!
Guess who else has joined the ranks?
Laura Beth and TJ!

Here the four of us are!
Joe and TJ were on security detail for the night. They even ate their meals outside of the banquet hall in the lobby to protect the auction items.
What sweethearts they are.

You might recognize these two amazing women I get to call friends!
We had a blast!
Love you girls!
Laura Beth and I were so proud of our BIG hair when we left the house, it fell quickly in the heat and humidity. It made us sad!
Pictures of the tables and auction to come.
Be Blessed!
