Navy Birthday Ball

I know these are a couple weeks late...but better late than never, right?

The Navy Birthday Ball was back on October 10th. I really wanted to go, and it usually takes Nathan a lot of convincing to go to something like this because he isn't a fan of dancing. Not this year - I mentioned it and it went and got tickets! It helps that the band got in free...so we just had to get my ticket. Gotta love being a band geek...or being married to one in my case.

The food was actually quite good...normally 'banquet' food is kinda icky...but this one was fancy schmancy. Look at the beautiful butter ball display: (Although I must admit, seeing these balls gave me momentary fright...they are the same kind we used to have at the restaurant and I used to have to prepare trays and trays of them at the end of my shift.)

My meal was roast beef in some sort of sauce, with some twice baked potato goodness and green beans.

There was birthday cake and some raspberry gelato in a chocolate dipped waffle bowl for dessert. Mmmm, mmm good. Oh, and the cake had blue frosting:


Here we are...don't you just love the skirt of my dress? When we bought it I thought it was just silver...but when we got it home I realized it was a silvery PURPLE!! :) It is so soft and when I twirl it billows out. I just love dressing up!

The Fishers. They came with us to humor us I think. When we tied to get them on the dance floor Sara looked like she might stick a fork in my face.

Another one of us...cause you just can't get enough of the cuteness. OH, and you can see my new hair color in this one. :) ...well, sort of. In the light it is quite a bit more purple. I love the new color...it makes my eyes pop.


Oh, I almost forgot the best part of my outfit!! I have had these beauties for a few years and I only get to bust them out about once a year on average. The pic doesn't do them justice...they are sparkly and fabulous. Oh how I love them so.
