PLACE: DQ’s bedroom
SUBJECT: SD’s & my legs
This is what I wore tonight to the charity event. (Brown “Me Too” boots ($6 @ Goodwill), white tights - no, my legs are not THAT pale - ($5 @ Wal-mart) and tan corduroy skirt ($3 on clearance at Wal-Mart). Not pictured is an orange cami and a white hoodie (Old Navy). SD is in the background wearing leggings from Target. Her shoes are from Payless)
The event went well. For a donation of a toy or $20 per person, we get to sample food from around 20 different restaurants. There were gift basket raffles and the County Animal Shelter held a drawing for 2 dogs and 3 cats. DQ purchased a ticket for one of the cats but
thankfully unfortunately, she did not win. I’m stuffed and it was for a good cause. All donated gifts and proceeds will go to local needy families. I like that fact that it is a local charity. Due to the economy, our charitable contributions are not as much as they have been in years past. But this is one event that we definitely keep in our budget every year.
