Did I just hear someone clap, sigh and say "Thank goodness"?!
I enlisted all my friends & hubby to help with the 900 cakeballs I made for the event. It also fell the weekend of Mother's Day and Stacy's baby shower so I was busy busy making Cakeballs.
Good thing this blog is private because it is also the reason I forgot to take a test online and submit a research paper. I may have convinced my teacher today to at least count the research paper! Although after my speech against the new Healthcare Reform she (Ms. Highly Opinionated Teacher that apparently is very much FOR the reform) may change her mind. Ah well. I tried!
Anyway, back to what I was blogging about! Casino Night was May 7th in Marina del Ray (called The Marina for you new "locals" - Marlene taught us some new lingo that night) and on the rooftop of the hotel overlooking the marina. It was beautiful and after texting Marlene "SOS Come over quickly" and getting to the event on time rather than early we pulled it together and I must say made quite an impression!
Everyone helped make these Cakeballs and honestly I cannot thank you all enough! My Bible Babes were such a blessing during our Bible Study the Saturday before the event. They helped roll the balls after Rachel and Sarah made the cakes. Sarah and Marlene took turns coming by to learn to dip the Cakeballs in chocolate later that week and I must say did a VERY impressive job. Marlene would like everyone to know that you should never order White Cakeballs because the Vanilla coating is no fun to use! ha!
Then in a panic Marlene and her husband Tim had to rush over an hour before the event to help me transfer the remaining Cakeballs into their little Cakeball cups - I had miscalculated how long this would take and Ty had spent over an hour doing it while I got ready. Through trial and lots of errors I am learning A LOT!
Here are a few pictures of Marlene and I behind the Cakeball table!
Marlene thank you for coming with me to Casino Night. I could NOT have done it without you! Thank you also for the beautiful flowers you bought me for the table! Your sister is so talented and you are SO thoughtful! I love you to bits! Here's Marlene and the beautiful flower arrangement! Also the Casino dishes, stand, and Casino vase were all hers! I REALLY don't know how I would have done it without her!
