The AFROTC Military Ball


Last night Chris and I went to the Det. 720's Military Ball, and had a lot of fun! One of the cadets invited us to meet his parents, so while Chris was talking to them, I was standing next to an older couple. A lot of the cadets had brought parents and grandparents, so I asked them if they had a child in ROTC, and he said no, he works for the university, but do I have a child? I didn't quite know how to reply! His wife looked shocked, and I simply said I do have children, but they are 3 and 4. His wife looked at him and said "You aren't off to a good start, honey. Would you like to try again?" I just laughed. It turns out, he is the assistant vice-president of the Dept. of Undergraduate Studies. So, I asked his wife what table they were sitting at, and she said "Um...I think the head table." Then, I just laughed at my own stupidity. I told her to wave to us down at Table 5!

They were such a sweet couple, and I really enjoyed talking to them. It turns out he is retiring this spring after working here 36 years. All I could think of was "Wow. He has been doing this since I was 1. Almost my whole life."


I also went out dress shopping. I found one on sale for half-price that I loved, so I got it. After a fiasco getting it hemmed in less than a day (a friend of mine from school is a prefessional seamstress, so she did it in an hour the afternoon of the dance!) I had my hair done, my nails done, and I was ready.

Getting dressed up with Chris is so much fun! Hooray for babysitters.

Look at you, Hot Mama!!! That assistant VP must have thought you had kids at age 5 - either that or he's just blind. How could he think you had a cadet in the ROTC?Glad you had fun on your "date night". I second the "hooray" on babysitters!!

I got the dress at a shop called Gia and Co. It was pretty cheap, and they had a fabulous selection.
See, I show a little cleavage, and LOOK at all the comments! hee hee

"Holy hooters, Batman- where did she get those?"
"I don't know Robin- but we need to uncover the mystery fast!"

Beautiful Susie! Didn't know you had that chest hiding under all that clothes. You will have to let them out more often. I am sure Chris didn't know what to do with himself. So I still have hope after two breastfeeding babies?

Got a picture of the two of you? Gina

Also I have to agree you look great in that dress. I wanna go to a dance. Last dance I went to was the prom and that was many moons ago!

I have to tell you, Chris' comment made me laugh out loud! The first good laugh I've had since Feb!!! Thanks Chris!!! karla

Kristen said...

Sounds like you had a good night. At the function, and apparently from Chris' comments, after! My first "Dining Out" when D was a 2LT, I was cutting my chicken, and my knife slipped, and I knocked some of my green beans almondine (you know what I'm talking about...club food) on the Col. sitting next to me! Embarassing!

liz said...
