Happy Little Working Song

Here's the first update for the gala.  I have until Friday to get everything together, and if I'm being honest I'm starting to get a little nervous.  I have all of the table setting completed, we hung the most of the prints at the gallery yesterday, and we've been getting some great press.

I've mentioned this before, but I don't own a car.  It's really hard to pick-up, carry over, or drop off on the bus. Over the past few weeks it has been nonstop trips to the store, making all kinds of decisions, spending hours and most of my sanity putting whatever I can together in my apartment.  My dear friends have been really great about driving when they can.  Particularly a shout out needs to go to my Bobby.  He is my own personal fairy godmother, I feel so strongly about this that I cast him as such in the Cinderella shoot.  He's amazing.

Also it became clear that to properly display the costumes I was going to need dress forms.  Luci Boutique of Milwaukee has be gracious enough to donate 6 dress forms for the evening which is beyond cool.

I have accomplished a lot, but I still have all the food to complete.  The issue with that is that my kitchen is painfully small.  I can make it work, but it will be tough.  There's that and I could make all of the food today if I really wanted, but it would all be bad by Friday, so I'm just trying to figure out what I can prep early and want absolutely has to wait til the day of.  However I can give you some insights into the menu, which I am super excited about.

There's lots of other treats too, but I can't give away all my surprises.  I was going to take pictures of the decor that I have so far, but ironically, I don't own a camera that would support that process.  Besides, you'd have to check out the Gala this weekend to see what I've come up with.
