The past few days have been really busy, so I haven't been around to update. So, here's my update!

I finished most of new client's site. She is a wedding planner, and it was a lot of fun. It's not published yet live, but here is a screen shot of it:



I uploaded my pictures from the Christian Louboutin lecture. He was really darling and told great stories about designing his shoes and how they got the signature red heels (the first prototype had a black heel and he hated it, so he took the red nail polish his assistant was using!!) That was so much fun -



Aunt Betty had given me new Pottery Barn bedding a few weeks ago, and I haven't had the chance to set it up. So, I did so yesterday. I using some of my old green paisley Pottery Barn pillows because I still like them. It doesn't match PERFECTLY, but it is a nice tie-in of the two colors:



That picture kinda shows you my room. Sorta. At least part of the hallway into the room too...and my shadow box of my antique beaded handbag!! (love it!)

Yesterday, a friend had asked me to help out at the Monmouth County SPCA Las Vegas Night ('Paws Vegas') - they held a big casino night fundraiser and needed showgirls for the event to mingle and be around the gambling - and to wear 2 piece costumes, and dance with Elvis and get the crowd on the dance floor. My sister and Jennifer V. did it with me, and we had a lot of fun! It's a good thing that all 3 of us are pretty comfortable wearing like, nothing, and dancing on dance floors first to get everyone else on the floor. Alyson was great about going up to guys and getting them dancing! It was so funny! We also led a conga line to "Viva Las Vegas" and had to dance with guests for "Hounddog." Elvis was so sweet, and we had a lot of fun talking to the guests. We all each also go to spin the money wheel in the gambling room!

It was a lot of fun and definitely not something that happens every day! The organization raised over $40,000 last night in gambling - which is amazing for the animals! I'm glad we were able to help and we had a lot of fun doing it!

My camera didn't have any pictures of Alyson and I. They must be on her camera? I hope so! But here are some from last night - I also exchanged business cards with some of the guests there for web work, and to hang out! Also, the photographer gave us his card and I can't wait to see his pictures! He took a bunch of us!!

Elvis was so much fun!

Jennifer also has a lot going on in her life right now, so I made her a Shutterfly album of some of our best pictures and gave it to her yesterday. She seemed to have really liked it which made me smile!
