Scales and Tails Gala

This year I was lucky enough to go with my sister, Emma, to The Living Planet Aquarium's fundraiser called "Scales and Tails". I had such a great time and really enjoyed getting dressed up and having a fancy dinner. It was also great going through the aquarium with far less people. 

We started out the evening mingling with others and eating hors d'oeuvres. I made certain to make myself try all of them and they were honestly delicious! 

While everyone mingled, there was also a silent auction going on. I bid on one thing, but lost. Emma did get a few fun things though. 

We eventually were led into a room to have dinner. The evening was James Bond themed and so I, of course, had to get a picture with him. :) 

The decorations were really pretty and the food was great! Except, I have to be honest, I did not like the watermelon salad. That's just not my taste.

During/after dinner they had a live auction. They brought in an actual auctioneer so it was fun to hear him speak so quickly. At one point my sister's two old bosses, who used to be married, were bidding against each other. It was so funny to watch. Of course Kristen won. ;)

We ended the evening with some music and raffles. There were also game tables with poker and other card games set up, but Emma and I are not casino card game players so we opted out. 

I had such a great time! I'm so glad Emma invited me. It was nice to get out for the evening and do something I've never done before. Thanks for taking me, Ems!

Oh and bonus… we were invited to eat at a really nice 5 star restaurant in Salt Lake. We get to take our husbands and have a nice fancy dinner and date. I'm so excited for it and you'll definitely be reading about it after it happens. :)
