An excuse to wear a formal!

I love to dress up. Any excuse to doll myself up, I'm in. Usually I prefer it when I'm thinner... but I've lost some weight, so it was okay this time. My MIL, mine and Mike's birthdays, bought us tickets to their ward's YW fundraiser. It was a formal dinner and dance. So we went through the closets, sorted through a lot of jewelry, gloves, and purses, and got all dolled up. The girls got a flower for their hair, the boys got a rose for their lapel, and we dined and danced the night away, complete with Salsa dancing instructions and a band. The YW served us delicious food (note to self: get that gravy recipe) and we had a great time visiting with friends and family. And I got to go out with my good looking hubby! Thanks Mom & Dad Laudie!

 P.S. Our night out also included babysitting. I don't think the kids minded at all!
 Note to Amy: Don't fall asleep near your brother. He will pile dolls on your back.

Thanks sister! I felt really pretty. And it's always nice when your husband tells you "I ran into so-and-so and I was sad you weren't with me so I could show you off."
