Hobnobbing with the Rich and Famous
Oh what a night!!
Last night was amazing!
You can access the article that the Steelers wrote about the fundraiser HERE.
Following is MY version of what happened - hee hee!
It really was an amazing night out with a great friend from work (shout of to Kathleen) and a wonderful group of people that support and run the Cystic Fibrosis fundraisers.
This is the view from inside at McFadden's which is where it was held. This bar/restaurant is located right by both Heinz Field and PNC Park on North Shore Drive in Pittsburgh.
This little doosie pulled up as we were waiting for the event to start! It is awesome outside but is even cooler inside!!!
This is a shot of me with the owner inside the bus. The bus was created and paid for by this private owner and he brings it to all the events and tries to encourage the players to sign it...it is pretty amazing!!!! Shout out to Jeff!!! Hope to see ya soon! He was so much fun to chat and hang out with!
We had an awesome buffet and the opportunity to bid on a bunch of amazing memorabilia and then it was time to get our balls signed. Everyone paid $200 entrance fee to get your ball and admission. Then you get to take your ball through the lineup and get every player there to sign it. AWESOME!!! Below you can see how it was all setup.
This is a shot of all the guys that signed last night... they included Brett Keisel, Troy Polamalu, Cameron Heyward, Heath Miller,
Ryan Clark, Maurkice Pouncey, Ziggy Hood, Steve McLenden, Al Woods, Hebron
Fangupo and Brian Arnfelt from the practice squad! Awesome night!That is them below in no particular order...
Here is a shot of my completed football - this is going to my brother-in-laws man cave as payment for all the work he does on my car free of charge...thanks Steve!!! At least he will love it and appreciate it (I would just stuff it in a closet and never look at it - HEE).
Finally, my favorite part of the night...I got to get a picture with Brett Keisel of the Steelers. He was so nice! There were so many people waiting for pictures and he GRACIOUSLY accepted all requests for pictures - he really was so nice about it. Here is my friend from work, Kathy, and I with Brett.
And here is just me and Brett...
ANNNNNNNNNND zoomed in as this is my new profile picture...
I am so grateful to my friend Kathleen for inviting me to this awesome event and as you can see it was an amazing night and time...

1. What's something in your house you'd like to get rid of but can't? Oh UGH! Don't remind me!! LOL! My carpet! I own a condo and I would love to replace my carpet!. My parents had their whole house done for around 5 thousand so I thought it would be reasonable for my little itty bitty condo but guess what???It was ridiculous!! My lowest quote was $3600!! WHAT?!?!? So disappointing! Then - my dishwasher broke so that sealed the deal for no new carpet!! What I am going to do I start watching YOUTUBE videos and learn how to do hardwood or laminate myself!! Stay tuned!!!
2. When is the last time you experienced a sense of nostalg…
