Love 146

this year for valentines day,
cam and i decided not to do anything for each other.
over $13 billion is spent on vday each year,
and i think that is such a waste.
so we decided to go to our dear friend, Shellie's,
non-profit fund raiser.
It was at the fabulous Pomegranate Place
and it was just a measly $10 donation to get in.
it was benefitting Love 146
whic is a program started to
end child sex slavery and trafficking.
it is an amazing cause.
so please go to the link above for a great website,
some videos, and some great stories.
on a brighter note, there were a million amazing desserts
provided by local businesses (cheesecake factory, whole foods, etc)
and made by some awesome girls, and wine donated by
local liquor stores!!!!
this mansion was beautiful and i want to live there.
i loved every single thing about it.
my photos don't do it justice.

this is shellie with the amazing black pants, and super high heels.
the bar.

love the hearts
and on the table is a "tree" with heart ornaments on it for sale.

see how cute!
and the candle holders were made by shellie and emily
from poured concrete (into paper cups, and then cups torn away once dry)

yummy amazing food

(and delicous)

every bit of stationary and sign and everything, SO CUTE
(did i mention shellie's a graphic designer/interior designer?)
oh, well she is.
the room where the video was playing
and bethany looking all hip

I want to steal this bathroom
(they said it was being renovated, but i kinda like it how it is)

umm, yelllow tile border? yes please!

coming down the stairs, looking at front door.

me and b
(if you in this pic from the blog, b and i are wearing the EXACT same thing that we did to the gentry wedding, but just over jeans (b/c it was super cold last night) we totally didnt do it on purpose, but it was really funny)

s and b
i love love love this pic

L and C
isn't he so cute in his cardigan?
it was a great night
and such a good cause
good food
good drink
good friends
good times.
In this life we cannot do great things. We can only do small things with great love.
