What I'll Be Bidding on this Saturday...

I cannot WAIT for the Children's Museum Birthday Bash this Saturday, especially because they have some amazing auction items! I'm a bit notorious when it comes to silent auctions and I've gotten some fantastic items at local benefits over the years-track boxes, a Chanel purse, pilates gift certificates and tons of local restaurant gift certificates. This Saturday I've got my eye on a few, but keep it in mind readers, I'm a pro when it comes to silent auctions and I hate to lose! Here are some highlights as a little teaser, they have an astounding 85 items so there will be something for everyone. If you haven't gotten tickets yet get them now as they are almost full! See you there! xoxo-Jenny
