The ball is coming!

It’s that time of year again!!

In just a couple of weeks it will be time for the Policeman’s Ball for my husband’s department. I’m so excited! I love getting all dressed up and glamorous, and my husband looks so FINE in his uniform/tux/suit. This year, he is on the honor guard, so he will be in his uniform. Yummy!

As is pretty typical of any sort of ball, there will be all sorts of dresses with the majority of women wearing long and formal gowns. Some young little things (and some really not so young) will break out the short dresses, and yes, there will be those that are rather “scandalous” too. I have always gone for the long dress myself, and I’ve always worn blue really for 2 reasons. 1. I LOVE the color blue and looking really good in that color (if I do say so myself) and 2. it’s the policeman’s ball so duh…blue seems obvious. Not to mention, my husband loves me being in blue also.

This year I managed to shop at the height of homecoming season. While my daughter and her friend were shopping for their short and cute little dresses, I was able to snag this beauty:

I feel like it’s classy but sexy at the same time without being over the top. Even though I’m not blond like this model, my red hair looks pretty amazing too. My husband was even able to get my dress hemmed for me since my little 5’3″ height doesn’t exactly work even with some pretty incredible heels on. Meh…whatever.

I am looking forward to a night out with my husband looking and feeling gorgeous, and hopefully spending it hanging out with a few friends too. 🙂
