We always have fun at these things, but this one definitely ranks at the top of the list. It was just a blast with each other and friends that we love.
I recycled an old bridesmaid dress and Parker of course wore his uniform. Is there anything better than a man in a uniform? He looked handsome as always!
The Commodore kept the speech portion of the evening short and sweet compared to previous years, and for that, I was grateful.
We had a fun group at our table, including my DG friend Elly! We were both Delta Gammas at different colleges and jumped on the opportunity to take a DG picture together. Those opportunities are few and far between in the post grad days!
Hanging out with our friends Andrew and Katy is always a good time. Parker snapped this picture below... and then 25 more just like it. Have you ever given your phone to someone to snap a picture and they just keep snapping?? Said someone will not be your favorite after those antics. That husband was on my list after that stunt. Good thing he's cute.
One last picture before we changed into our after party attire. I have mixed feelings of changing for the dance portion. On the one hand, you spent so much time getting all dolled up and bought a nice dress, so you want to stay in it as long as possible. On the other hand, said nice dress is rarely very comfortable, and you welcome the excuse to change clothes. So long, fancy clothes...
It's party time! This year's theme was black light/rave, so we wore all black and a semi-obnoxious amount of glow sticks. Yall, I am hear to tell you we have been attending dance parties all wrong. Looking cute is overrated, and after dancing the night away in nike shorts and bright pink sneakers, I may never go back. Dancing and comfy clothes go together like peas and carrots. I'm pretty sure that's what Forrest meant to say.
It was a wonderful evening spent with friends and my favorite forever date. We didn't want it to end! Just for grins, I put together a little collage from past Navy balls. Can't wait to add more to this list!
