A Night Out

Last night was the awards ceremony for NHFD. Hubby took me and son took his sister (not his decision).  It was semi-formal so I had to do some shopping for the kids.  Son needed a shirt and tie and youngest needed an entire out fit.  She's in a phase where she absolutely refuses to wear a dress. She so doesn't want to look like a girl.  I was a tomboy too but I never remember not wanting to look like a girl.  Any way, she ended up with a great pair of black pants, a muted purple sweater and heels.  She picked out the shoes.  With her height and a waist the size of my wrist she looked fantastic.  My leather blazer completed the outfit.
And the dress I shopped for in my closet fit.  It's been a long time since it zipped.  Wohoo!

They had a cocktail hour, dinner, awards and dancing.  The DJ really got people involved.  Youngest hit it off with a few of the girls and she was on the dance floor having a great time.  My VERY serious son was dragged on the floor by one of the mom's and being to polite to say no went.  He actually started to loosen up a bit and joined the rest of the cadets on the floor.

The music wasn't too loud and hubby and I spent a lot of time on the dance floor ourselves.  It was such a fun evening.  The best fire department dinner I've been to.  There were a lot of laughs and some joking but no one getting stupid.  I look forward to more of these events.
And I'm wearing 4 inch heels in this picture.  The beads were part of a game we played at dinner.  I managed to win a few extra strands.  And son's tie didn't make it until dinner. :(  He's still handsome though - just like his daddy.
