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.
