The Navy Goshawk Ball

Jon and I went to the Navy Goshawk Ball and had an absolute hoot. :)
I’ll share a few pictures from our night…

Getting ready to go… taking a few pictures before we leave.

My handsome husband…
A few pictures of my dress… I decided to wear a vintage, tea-length, tiered polka dot dress with a red sash and red heels (had to throw the red in somewhere!). I wanted something fun… and I was certain that no one would be wearing the same dress. 😉

I love that Dolly is just watching me. haha… she is probably pleased as punch that it is my turn to parade in front of the camera and not hers!
And now, hubby…
Yes, as a matter of fact that tuxedo shirt does have dragons all over it. It is called the “party” shirt and Jon was proud as a peacock to be wearing it. The yellow was his squadron color.

Arriving at the ball…
Is it sad that I had to take a picture of the tablescape?? haha Or is it more sad that I thought that I have seen much prettier tablescapes on Tablescape Thursday (hosted by Susan at Between Naps on the Porch)?


They did, however, have these glass favors with a jet etched into it. We need another “favor” glass with a jet on it like we need a hole in the head. haha No complaints here though… I won’t turn down anything with an airplane on it. 😉

And sneaking a last picture in the elevator on the way out…

It really was a fun night…and great to meet all the people you hear stories about but never get the chance to put a face to the name. :) Now only if I can find a ball to attend where you get to wear a ginormous ball gown and waltz around to the likes of Mozart and Beethoven…perhaps even arrive by horse and buggy. Am I living in the wrong era? 😉 I often think so…
