The Starlight Ball at Lowry Park Zoo

The hubby and I had a wonderful time last night at the Starlight Ball at Lowry Park Zoo hosted by the University Community Hospital.  I touched a giraffe!!!  This was a fund raiser for UCH's Center For Wound Care & Hyperbaric Medicine.  We actually know someone who has benefited from this treatment, so it was nice to participate in the event.

The best part of the evening was meeting Jorge and Jessica.  What a wonderful couple!  (Jorge and my husband work together at UCH.)  And I got to meet the woman behind the blog (  It was so nice to speak with her and pick her brain.  She is very sweet and both she and Jorge have a wonderful sense of humor.  Her blog inspired me to start mine.  I hope we will see them again as we really enjoyed their company.  Thanks Jorge and Jessica!!  P.S.  We went in the best haunted house ever at Lowry Park.....NOT!!


  1. We had such a blast with you guys as well! The guys will have to get together and plan a night for us all to go out together again soon!! I know George said he really likes wine, and there is a place in Hyde park called The Wine Exchange that has great food and great wine as well! Or since we are all on the north area of Tampa maybe we can meet somewhere around here! If y'all like Thai food there is a wonderful resturant here in Tampa on North Dale Mabry!
    Hope to talk and see you soon!

  2. It was awesome finally meeting you and like Jess said we had a blast! Btw if you like Brie that Wine Exchange place must sprinkle crack in theirs bc Jess was raving about it.
