October 13th was the Navy's Birthday! VQ-1 decided to make the Navy Birthday Ball a mandatory fun event. So all gussied up we got!
Saturday, Kenny and I headed up to Anacortes to hang out and get our hair done (well, not Kenny). Jamie, her fun friend Lindsay, and I headed to an afternoon of getting dolled up! It was a bit of a process to get beautiful. I don't know that I have ever had such big hair, but I am just prepping for moving to Texas possibly. Big HAAIR!
The Big HAIR...
The finished product!
Then it was time to get the digs on and head to the pre-party. Since we like to hang out with the Saxtons so much, we stopped by their abode for a photo op. Thank goodness that Beth always has a camera!
The two lovely couples!
The girls! (Me, Carter, and Beth!)
At the pre-party at the XO's house, we enjoyed getting to see everyone all dressed up. I love the casual living of the Pacific Northwest, but it is always fun to get a little dressed up. :)
My ladies: Lindsay, Jamie, Amy, Me, Beth, Whitney, and Lara
My second main squeeze at the event and I. It's great to have a pregnant friend because you have an excuse to sit down!
My hot date :)
The actual ball was not exactly what I was expecting. Let's just say that as Momma B would say, "You can't buy class." I did luckily get to sit next to Beth and my handsome husband, and I got to do a little dancing with my main squeeze (that would be Kenny). Plus, I got to wear my prom dress again! It was nice to celebrate the Navy's birthday and have a classy date out on the town with some great friends. Thanks to Beth for taking pictures, being DD, and always being my buddy! And thanks to Jamie for doing my makeup and setting up a day of beautifying!
Happy Birthday Navy!
