Merry Christmas Lovelies!!
It's that time of year.. when we all join our coworkers in a end of the year celebration with booze and food. It's never a good combo; but we do it over & over again. This year the hubby helped plan our command party.. but then they gave him 'duty' the night of. Needless to say we didn't end up going and I ended up with a dress & no where to wear it. After threatening to clean house in a formal gown; my hubby decided to contact a friend of ours from his old ship. They were having their Christmas party on the 15th of Dec & got us 'guest' tickets to the event. So yes; we crashed another ships Christmas party & it was awesome!
Navy Command Christmas parties aren't the highlight of my year. Although I love the formal attire ~ it's really a bunch of guys high fiving; while holding alcohol in their hand and their wives being uncomfortable and bored to tears. The truth is: if you are a spouse and you don't have another spouse friend in attendance ~ you might as well grab a drink & a seat. This year was awesome b/c I had Mrs R to hang out with and we had a lot of catching up to do with others that we haven't seen in a while. There were some people who weren't as gracious about us being present but then again we had a full table of people surrounding us with laughter and love. That's all that matters right?
The photo booth was fun and the food was amazing. My heels kept me from making a fool of myself on the dance floor. We ended up leaving soon after the prizes were handed out (10 pm) ~ Ben needed his pain meds. Well that's all I have to say about the overall Christmas party. Here are some pictures we captured of our night; ENJOY!
