E2/C2 Ball 2014

Pregnancy exhaustion has hit in full swing, so I thought I would make it short and sweet today and share a few snapshots from this past weekend's ball! We forewent the usual Navy Birthday Ball and attended the Greyhound Hawkeye Ball instead. I prefer the birthday ball, but the cool thing about this ball was there was a costume after-party! We came so close to skipping it because I was so tired but decided to stick it out at the last minute, and I am so glad we did!

Here are a few photos at the ball! I love it when the guys get to wear their dress uniforms. Parker just looked so handsome!




We love getting dressed up and were glad for an excuse to escape the Aggie vs Alabama game and go to the ball (worst. game. ever.), but the after party was definitely the highlight of the evening. Naturally, the only good picture I have is of the impressive ice sculpture. It was a costume party, and the theme was sci fi. Since that is my least favorite genre of movies ever, I was at a loss. We went to Target the day of to see if we could work with anything there, and Parker grabbed two Duck Dynasty beards and said "these will be perfect". On what planet is Duck Dynasty sci fi, I have no idea, but I went with it. We decided we would be "Rednecks from the Future" (so lame, I know) but realized 5 minutes after we left that we left the silly beards at home. So we each had boots, jeans, and plaid shirts. That + sci fi equaled space cowboys. It was passable, and we were in the perfect clothes to dance the night away. Winning.


And just for fun, 8 years of balls with my favorite forever date. We are getting old over here.

oh my gosh you are so beautiful!! I'm terrified that when the time comes and I get pregnant, my biggest problem will be exhaustion! It's good that you stuck it out and went to the after party though..sounds like an amazing time!

(PS- I found your blog through a Blonde Ambition and knew right away after seeing your blog name that you were a fellow DG!)

You look awesome as always Chelsea. And you and Parker are so cute together. I'm so glad you are finally about to have a little one. I can't wait to go long and read about your journey and when you found out what you're having and names and all that fun stuff. can't wait til its me. Will be a few years though. But I know that's one thing I want in life is to have my own kids. Although having a step son is a major plus.

you look beautiful, and haven't aged a single year in all of the photos...your little bump is so cute....stop with the "getting old" stuff...30 has been my best year yet, and I am in better shape than I was when I was in my 20's...and I spent my entire 20's as a Marine...getting older is amazing...embrace it.....and lastly.........you need to find that app where you put a photo of you and Parker in it, and they guess what your baby might look like. I did it with both of my kids, and it was totally inaccurate....lol...but for some people it was pretty close!

You looked gorgeous! And I too love seeing the guys get all dressed up in their uniforms. Ugh - and don't remind me about that horrible game. I'm glad that we had a week off. Hopefully next week will be a better one.
