Husband and I are going to a military ball this weekend. Believe it or not, I think this is actually my first ball. We’ve been to plenty of formal banquets and other military events, but never an actual ball. (For some reason I feel the need to share how hard I’m resisting making any sort of “ball” puns: “we’ll have a ball,” “we better get on the ball,” or “keep your eye on the ball.” Ok, I’m stopping.) This will also be a historic event because, get this, I’m actually wearing a dress I wore as a bridesmaid! I’ve always heard “you’ll be able to wear it again!” whenever I’ve been a bridesmaid, and every single one of those bridesmaid dresses has been pushed to the back of my closet never to come out again. But this time, I’m actually wearing one. The dress is long, black, and really elegant. And, funny enough, it’s the dress from when I was the stand-in bridesmaid. I made sure to tell my friend (the bride) that she has great taste and that I’m happy to wear it again. Happy Friday!
