The Big Night

Remember my Necklaces post?  Trying to find a necklace to wear with my beautiful dress to Tuck's big award banquet.  Here is a bad picture of the necklace I wore.  The lighting in my bathroom was horrible!  This necklace is actually white gold with two perfectly white cultured pearls and a couple little diamonds.  It looked very nice!

Here we are.  All dressed up and we actually had some place to go!


We had an amazing time!  The hotel was right on the water.  Such beautiful views.  The food was amazing and the open bar...well who can complain about that? The company had a cheese and fruit table set up that was divine.  Then waitresses were carrying around trays of prosciutto wrapped asparagus (yum!), coconut shrimp (yum!), mushroom tarts (double yum!), and jalapeno and cream cheese stuffed bacon wrapped chicken (double yum!).
When we were seated there was a fresh garden salad at each plate and each chair alternated Italian Cream Cake or a Red Velvet Cake filled with chocolate ganache, cherries, and cream cheese frosting.  Yum! Our dressing choices for our salad were balsamic vinaigrette or ranch. 
Then we were served a yummy plate of chicken AND steak with a sauce drizzled over the top, mashed new potatoes, and steamed yellow squash, zucchini, and peppers.  Needless to say we were stuffed!
The hotel room they put us up in was beautiful and had the most comfortable bed!
It was wonderful evening, and my Tuck more than deserved the recognition.  I am so proud of him and all his hard work!
