my husband and i took a long weekend trip to d.c. last week before wedding season begins ~ and what fun we had together!  we drove and stayed with family while there, which was so nice and relaxing.  i had way to much fun shopping, and i am fortunate enough to have a husband who enjoys it to :)  it was all so wonderful to getaway and just spend time with the hubby.  i kept saying i just needed one more day, and well i got it.  we got a flat tire in south hill, va [if you want a great laugh give me a call] and ended up getting towed to durham, nc and being holed up in the local hilton for about 24 hours while the tire was ordered and put on [really, you should call will get quite the laugh!]  needless to say we made the most of it and were very thankful to be home!

one more pic

here is one more pic from the fashion show ~ this is my committee of volunteers [minus a few who couldnt't make it] who put on the ball, and are just great to work with!  they give of their time 9 months of the year to put on the big purple ball...and many have been doing it for years.  thanks guys!

purple ball fashion show

on sunday we had the kick-off event for the asheville area arts council ball we do every year.  it is a fashion show featuring all local boutiques, designers, hair and makeup artist.  we had a good turnout and raised some money for the ball and sold some tickets for the event in june!  it all turned out very well ~ and i have to thank jennifer shatley for all she did, what a lifesaver! [that's us in the picture with her husband, dean, board chair for the aaac.]  the renaissance hotel donated the space and is a sponsor for the ball ~ without our sponsors it just would not happen!  enjoy the pics from my hubby.
