The Annual Portledge Gala- my first year as an attendee and not a slave to the event. Remember 2 years ago when I was 9 months pregnant and had to find an appropriate dress for the event? I wore these same Jimmy Choos even 3 weeks pre-delivery.
In addition to savoring eating my dinner actually seated at the table this year, I also enjoyed bidding on an array of unaffordable auction items, only to end up with a tissue box holder and a gift certificate to Limani for which I paid face value. No worries, a night with free babysitting (my mom) and an open bar is never wasted money.
