Ball Gowns & Bow-Ties 2013

Happy Monday Y'all! 
Sorry I've been a little social media MIA lately, sometimes your fiancé and home just need some TLC. I have been trying to not tweet, blog, Instagram from the bedroom or after 8-9 anymore! I need to simplify some things in my life right now!

But anyways, on to my post for today! 
This past weekend was the JDRF Hope Gala, you may remember last year & what the gala is all about. 

Well this year was even better! This year was a little more formal than the last and was it was a really important year, the CEO of Jeremy's company spoke and we had a record setting attendance! 

This year we raised $1.8 MILLION! SERIOUSLY? ONE POINT EIGHT MILLION DOLLARS! I was so shocked! That is by far the most money we have ever raised since I've been involved with JDRF for the past 16 years! 
Amazing, and I want to thank every single person who donated and helped raise that money! 

So my dress... I looked, I tried to find something but found nothing. My mom stopped by some small store out in the middle of nowhere and found both of our dresses! She sent me a really crappy phone pic and I said sure, I was desperate at this point! 
I saw and tried on my dress for the first time less than 24 hours before the event, it was perfect! 
I LOVED it! 



Precious Mommy & Paul, love them!



The evening was so amazing & I am so proud to be a part of JDRF!
