at the Ball!
The one on the left is last year and the one on the right is this year. You can't really see my dress that well, but I loved the neck line and I really felt good in the dress, and we had a great time to boot!
The weekend was fast and furious. We were so busy with social obligations. Friday we had a dinner party, Saturday a Mardi Gras Ball and Sunday, the Super Bowl.
We had a really good time at the ball on Saturday, they Royal Court costumes were incredible. The theme was "A night in Paris" and the Duchesses had powder wigs and gorgeous gowns. It was fun. Many of the women had their faces painted and elaborate feathers in their hair, it was really cool!
I love all the festivities of the Mardi Gras season, next weekend we have a cocktail party and another ball. Then we have 2 more balls and and two brunches to attend. I'm telling you I'm feeling a little tired and ready to just rest for one weekend or so. Whewww!
Any way, I had a great time. On the way to the ball, we stopped by a drugstore to pick up some mints and my sweet hubby went in the store all dressed up in his tux, looking quite dapper, I might add. When he got back in the car, he said the lady who checked him out looked so tired and saddened by life, he said that he bet she'd never been to a Mardi Gras Ball and then he looked at me and said we're so lucky, we really have a great life. It made me so happy to hear him say that. He's right too, we do have a great life. I'm so lucky to have found that man, even on my worst hormonal days, I do know how lucky I am.
Have a great day!
