Best of state in Utah, our wonderful evening...

My twist on the shoes and bag...red flowers...I made them and will show you soon...




Dropping the kids off, getting some pictures done and LOOK! Who got a goti for me????
He looks so good!




I love this dress...very romantique, Vintage looking...I got it at Alyse's Bridal in American Fork....The website HERE
So we arrived to the Salt Palace in Salt Lake city....The room was huge! 200 tables sitting 8 each.
A lot of people were chatting in the lobby because the room was quite dark...


2 big screens...
They had  a Jazz group playing...They are so good! Caleb Chapman and the Voodoo Orchestra!




The stage was huge too. The Studios i know in Paris are so tiny...


TV guy with a flat TV screen for people to read their lines... The other camera was in the air moving around....Another guy was traveling holding a video camera.



The tables were beautiful...Simple but classy...




This is my plate...Salad and dessert..Chocolate Cheese cake...good...





Hubby and me....Mona the beautiful came with us (She works with hubby at Amber Alert GPS)....LOVE her...




Next to us, a cute couple from Agency Fusion HERE....They were adorable...They won a medal for Science/Technology too.


Starting the Evening as Master of Ceremony, Shauna Lake and Mark Koelbel of KUTV2.


Here is my Entrée....Crusted fish, Roast beef...Rice Carrot risotto and Steamed vegetables...


One of the medalists....V Chocolates HERE....So good!



The presenter for the Science/Technology Medalists...


Hubby getting up...Getting the medal...


Miss Utah teen USA 2010 and Miss Utah USA 2010.





Back stage.....



They were taking pictures of the Medalists Group.


Love this Purple dress...Right color and she looks so good!


This white dress with black belt was stunning... Fashion perfect!


Then, we had a great show...
The American Heritage Lyceum Philharmonic.
Caleb Chapman and the Voodoo Orchestra.


The Odyssey Dance Theater dancers were amazing...


Here, with the song Thriller by Michael Jackson.
Jason Lyle Black...He was on Ellen degeneres Show....Amazing!
Caleb Chapman and the crescent super band.
Live Fanfare music by walt Gregory.


Then, they had the statue winners....
A French chef won :) for best dining....


My bag....I needed a cute bag to hold my camera....Did the job!
We did not win our category...It's ok...:)


Us, in the lobby before leaving....


Not before saying bye to Shauna Lake and Mark Koelbel.


Then, we went to Temple Square next door....
A BIG tourist spot.....You can guess why..So rich in beauty and Pioneer History...


This is the Salt Lake Temple in the back...My camera took amazing pictures...It was dark but the light from the Temple was amazing on camera without the flash!








The Christus....Room with a Famous Statue of Christ....Beautiful!

OH, this was a dream, i had so much fun!
