Holly Ball

Ever since we were married I have always told Chris "I can't wait until we have to go to some party and actually dress up" well last Saturday I got my wish. St. Luke's hospital was having a benefit dinner for a new women's center and one of the practices paid for two tables just for the Residents. Chris made the mistake of telling me about it and then asked if I wanted to! I knew that I could find a dress somewhere and I was thinking that It wouldn't be hard to find a black suit for Chris to borrow. Wow was I wrong! I found a dress for....wait for it....wait for it. $3.20! that is right, I was talking to my friend Jaime and she had mentioned try the salvation army. The thought never crossed my mind until then, and the next day I was off to find a dress. I found this dress and it was $6.40 but that day, all clothing happen to be 50% off. Wahoo! Luckily I didn't have more of a belly than I already do because there is no way I would have fit into that dress come another week or two. Chris' was another story, in the end we spent alot of money on his suit but at least he has something if we ever go to a black tie event again. So I'm thinking Happy birthday to me! I got a Black suit so We could get all dressed up and go to a ball :) We had a good time. It is so nice to have a live in babysitter to let us go out every once and a while. Thanks Robyn!

The things you are forced to do when you are out numbered by a bunch of girls!
Chris was a good sport by showing some manly leg!
