Yes, I have been MIA

I know it's been a while since I have blogged but this past week was my insane week at work. We had 2 events, one Thursday night and one Sunday night. I had so much work to do!!

Luckily, both events turned out great!!

The first event was a patron party. Our guests were treated to a fabulous dinner by Chef James Boyce. The event was held at a horse farm. Now that sounds funky but it was the most amazing place ever!

They also had the most beautiful Gypsy Vanner horses that the hosts breed. The decorations were beautiful. The weather perfect. I had to pitch in and help serve. Luckily, I didn't spill anything on anybody. That would have been awkward.

I also got to help the chef plate the food. It was really a wonderful event.

Sunday's event was a little more involved. It is a Taste of event that had several local restaurants and 2 celeb chefs as well. We had music, dancing, drinks and lots of tasty food.

We had a huge crowd and the night was once again perfect. I think we raised quite a bit of money that will help the school I work at. YAY!

But I am glad the events are over! I love coordinating events and planning them and being involved but they are hard work and I am beat.

Luckily, tomorrow we head out for a little rest & relaxation close to home for a couple of days! We are headed to Lake Lure where "Dirty Dancing" was filmed. It is close to where we live but I think I need a little bit of doing nothing!

We will fish, swim and relax. Hopefully, I will get some books read. I don't think I will have internet service. I truly believe Tom did that on purpose. But I can still use my phone if desperate and I do get desperate if I can't access the internets!

So I will still be MIA!
