|It's all thanks to entering my beautiful angel in a photo contest!|
Susan from Life with Wrigs said, "There must be some way you can do both!"
Yes! We are going to be able to do both, because my sister-in-law graciously offered to have the birthday party for my mom start at 1:00, so that my sis and I can be outta there early and have time to make it to the gala in L.A.
We are going to stay overnight so we'll have a hotel room where we can get dolled up once we get there.
The hubs, as I mentioned before, doesn't really enjoy these kinds of fancy dinners, but my sis and I both like to play dress up, (and she's also a supporter of MAF!) so she was more than happy to be my date for the night. Like I said, we started putting these wheels in motion yesterday morning, but then I also had to make sure they still had tickets, since I'd turned them down on Wednesday morning. But I just go the email confirming our tickets will be waiting for us next Saturday. Whoohoo!!!
I'm gonna be in the same room with this fabulous lady: (!!!!)
Dog-lover extraordinaire, Betty Freaking White you guys!!
I'm SOOOOO excited! I'll give you guys the full report the following week!
(Update: I was so excited I hit 'publish' before thanking the hosts of FUF!)
Thank you to Jodi of Heart Like a Dog and this week's co-host JoAnn of Sand Spring Chesapeakes!

Yes! It will probably be a long and gushing one cuz I love Betty so much!Delete

Susan and Wrigs
Thank you! Can't wait to share with everyone how it goes!Delete
Best Follow up Friday ever! Wonderful how it all worked out for you. I adore Betty White too. I've heard that some hilarious potty mouth words come out of that sweet face on occasion which kind of makes her more of a role model than her great career and selfless work with animals. She is one celebrity who doesn't just grab a dog leash for the camera. Can't wait to hear about it.ReplyDelete
Yeah, she's pretty spicy. I want to be her when I grow up. One of my favorite things she says is when interviewers will ask her something along the lines of, "Betty, you've had such a long amazing career. Is there anything else you'd like to do?" She'll answer: "Robert Redford." Cracks me up every time I hear it!Delete
Yaaaaaaay!!! So happy to hear that you're going to get to go after all!!! I knew you'd work something out!! I mean, Betty White!! You would've kicked yourself forever if you missed it.ReplyDelete
Oh Jackie, I am so excited for you!! And I am so glad that something happened so you could go. Have fun!!ReplyDelete
That is great and we hope you have a really good time and you must tell us all. Do spill the beans when you get back. Have a super Saturday.ReplyDelete
Best wishes Molly
I am so excited for you! So glad you worked this out and will be able to attend!ReplyDelete
Yay! I'm so glad you're going! Betty White!! Love that woman!! How cool!ReplyDelete
Yay!!!! That is so awesome, I am so excited for you! Betty White!! I didn't want to gush about it before, and only make you feel worse! :) Family can be so great, can't they, it was so super of them to work things out for you! My hubby doesn't like doing stuff like that either, but I can usually find a sister or girlfriend who will fill in too. I know you are going to have a great time, and we'll all be looking forward to hearing about it.ReplyDelete
So happy for you! Have a great time!ReplyDelete
