Air Force Ball 2014

Wednesday, September 10, 2014

This weekend went by just too quickly! Air Force Ball 2014 has already come and gone. But John and I had a wonderful time.

Unfortunately, John was scheduled to work weekend duty in September, so I got to spend very little time with him outside of going to the ball. I dropped him off at work at 5:45 am Saturday morning and came back to the apartment to get a few more hours of beauty sleep! It's a very important thing when you want to look good for a special even, you know!

But really I had a full day. I bought John dishes, because he didn't have any plates in the house! Apparently they ran out of paper plates. And then quickly got to work on steaming all of the wrinkles out of my dress! Let me tell you, that was one heck of a job. I think it took me an hour and a half total to get the deep wrinkles out. Some of them, I just let be because you wouldn't be able to see them very easily.

Finally at 4 pm John got off work and he quickly got ready so we could be at the social hour by 6! This didn't leave us much time for pictures. I was a little disappointed with this, but it is what it is, you know! Sometimes that's how the military life goes. We did the best we could with finding a spot to take nice pictures and hurry up to get them so John didn't melt into a puddle of sweat in his uniform. Maybe next year we will have more time to take nice ones.

Overall we had a wonderful evening. I can't wait to go again next year!

  4. I'm glad you still got to go even though he had weekend duty! Your dress is so pretty! I found out our ball is going to be in a castle converted into a hotel this year and my husband was surprisingly open to the idea of going. He's going to look into it when he gets back. I'll be hitting you up for advice if we can still get tickets.
