This was Ian's and my second year attending the Oscar Night Atlanta Gala charity event the other weekend, what fun! Again, my SIL and BIL were so obliging and took Miss E for the evening while we got all dolled up for our Academy Awards viewing party. It's a blast! When you pull up to the red carpet and get out of your car, they they have a gaggle of "paparazzi" shouting your "name" (I was "Tina Fey") and taking pictures. You can't help but laugh!
Again, they had a nice bar, hors d'oeuvres, and the most beautiful petit-fours. I had one too many. But speaking of dessert, I so want to try this cheesecake. Especially the turtle. Yes, please.
We watched the show in the theatre live on the big screen. There we are directly in the center floor with our eyes glued at the end of the evening, waiting to see who won the big prizes.
They had a couple of those cool instant photo booths, and we acted like a couple of kids having our mugs snapped. I am, of course, in my perennial "teacup" pose. I can't help it. When a lens comes out, that hand goes on the hip in order to minimize underarm unfortunate-ness. Well, at least it's not duckface.
Here we are at the end of the night, picking up our soundly-slumbering E from Auntie A's. She and her "sister-cousin" S had a blast playing with ball pit balls in the bathtub.
If you have one of these events in your city, I'd highly recommend checking it out at least once!
