Everyone has been emailing me for pictures of our ball. I wish I could say I had tons of pictures to share with you from our ball and Vegas but I don't! The ball was a nightmare - I hated my hair and makeup, we were running WAY late, it took the boys three hours to check us in because the hotel overbooked everyone and we had to move hotels - so pictures were really the last thing on my mind, which is totally unfortunate since it was such a special and fun occasion. None of my friends have put their pictures up yet and once they do I'll be sure to post more if there's any of us worth posting (and I know there are some pictures of Matt fist pumping and booty shaking that will definitely be making their way onto the blog). But for now, this is all I have! I'm sorry family who I know wanted a nice picture of us. We just didn't get one! This is the best we got, and my hair had already fallen by the time we took it, and the flash made us look weird and blurry, and my red eye was so ferocious that I just look creepy:
But in the end the ball ended up being so much fun. Our guest of honor was a Marine with terminal cancer and our guest speaker was a POW for 6 years in Vietnam, so needless to say, the ceremony was very moving, and especially so on Veteran's Day. And after the ceremony, as an apology for the hotel room mishap, they gave us open bar! I don't think I need to say more about that. ;)
We didn't get to do all the things we planned on doing in Vegas. All of us felt sick from enjoying the open bar a liiiittle too much (well, with the exception of Matt obviously who as most of you know has never had a sip of alcohol in his life - such discipline!), so we laid around most of the day. We ended up only staying one day so now I wished we had taken better advantage of our time! But we had an awesome night out anyway. Us at the beginning of the night (the pictures from later on aren't so pretty, ha!):
And in case you're wondering what most of our night consisted of:
Scott dancing. And dancing on the pole. Yes, that really happened. And notice his shirt. I seriously laughed so hard I cried for a good majority of the night. Love our friends. And I can't wait to go back to Vegas, we already have another trip in the works. And I know Simrin has more pictures of us in Vegas so I'll be sure to post those when she sends them to me. I hope everyone had as much fun this weekend as we did!
