Hello darlings! Don’t worry, I did not wear this dress to church, lol. However, I am not saying I would never do this, lol. Speaking of church, we didn’t even make it to church! We did live stream so we didn’t really miss anything. We watched from home in pajamas because we have been taking care of Camrielle. She woke up in the middle of the night with a high fever and looking just as red as this dress. It was a rough night to say the least but today is good. We have had such a busy week and even busier weekend that we are staying home today. Our bodies (especially hers) need rest.
Anyone resting assured in their guess of who I am dressed up as here? I will give you a clue, it is a Disney princess and I sure felt like royalty wearing this red beauty. Friday was the annual Navy Ball and it was fun! I love seeing my husbands colleagues and their wives dressed so elegantly. One of my closest friends, Lisa, and I hired a makeup artist and enjoyed being pampered hours before. It is always so much more fun to get ready with another girlfriend. There is so much joy in it.
There is also joy in the process of finding that right dress, shoes, jewelry and hair do. It can also be surprisingly stressful! I actually had another two dresses for this occasion but they didn’t fit quite. One fit almost perfectly until I tried to sit down. Jake actually taught me this, lol. The other dress was two big just days before the event and I had no time to have it tailored. Thankfully, just three days before our fancy date I found this gem. I was so grateful because it was a perfect fit, I could actually sit down in it AND it coordinated perfectly with my “dressing up” as characters this month. Don’t you agree and see?
Lyianna and Camrielle,
I have enjoyed these Navy balls with daddy so much. You both have been to just as many as me too! My first Navy ball, Camrielle, well you were in the womb and Lyianna you were dressed up as Cinderella. You actually wore your Disney Cinderella dress to the ball, lol. I hope these are just as of sweet memories as they are for me. I love you both!
