Until the first part of November, that is.
My family and I were recently asked to be in a wedding and we said yes. That involved a trip back home to Louisville and getting my children and myself all dressed up. Hubby even donned a tux. He looked amazing too!
And we survived. No one fell. (I tripped a couple of times.)
No one burped the ABC's at the formal dinner either.
But our kids were ready for bed after a long spin on the dance floor. David and I were not.
So we took a nice horse drawn carriage ride and then headed back to the hotel in downtown Louisville.
The girls were given a cell phone and strict orders not to burn the hotel down while David and I did something we've never done before...
We left our oldest (of baby-sitting age) in charge and went out for a very late dinner.
Dressed in prom attire.
I've never been looked at so weirdly in my life.
I mean, really... what's so strange about a guy in a tux and a lady in a huge, billowing purple dress???
Maybe if we were in our teens and it was prom weekend, all would have been well.
But prom was a long time ago and so were our teen years.
Even so, David and I had a great time, a great dinner, and got some extra mileage out of our wedding attire.
So what do you think? Would you have given us weird looks???
