Someone posted a few new pictures of the Regency Exhbition Ball!


That's just an oversized thumbnail; click for the full image.

Couple of things:
  • That dress looks lovely in that photo! Way better than I thought it did.
  • I actually really like that you can't see faces. Ours, anyway.
  • Either I'm shorter than I think I am, or Mike is taller than I think he is. Or maybe both.
  • I'm smaller than I think I am, too. I felt like a steamboat in that dress, but I don't look that big. Yay! :)

  • In the car moving by 10:03 a.m. as per Mike McCarty's orders.
  • Went to The Dressmaker's Shop in Leslie with [livejournal.com profile] lachwen and Mike.
  • Went to Mike's parents' house, wrapped Gwendolyn in duct tape, got ready for ball.
  • Went to ball, saw Julie.
  • Danced lots.
  • Had fun.


I'll probably sit down and type up my customary blow-by-blow later, just for my own reference, but for now, enjoy!

Now that my I-have-an-event-every-weekend month of March is over, maybe I can go clean my apartment and go grocery shopping and all those sorts of things! I wouldn't have traded any of it for the world, though. Good events, great friends, wonderful times. And some pretty nice pictures, too.

So my weekend started early, when on Friday night I talked to [livejournal.com profile] superiorcap and wished him luck on his interviews in Delaware this weekend. "We'll miss you," I said, "but good luck." After that, lots of phone calls, people arriving, and the transfer to our "home base," my parents' house for Saturday dinner and the rest of the evening. That in and of itself was vastly pleasant and very relaxing. Which is good, because the actual event was anything but!

The day of the event started early at my parents' house, where [livejournal.com profile] nuranar, [livejournal.com profile] lachwen, Matt, and I slept. I didn't take a lot of pictures of the morning because a) it was morning and b) I spent most of the prep time ironing tablecloths on the floor of one of the side rooms at the mansion. At some point toward the end of our prep period, Gwendolyn went upstairs to change. I was doing something that now completely escapes me in the dining room, turned around, and nearly roused the dead with my shriek. Who should appear in the foyer but our very own [livejournal.com profile] superiorcap, Tyler Putman? I was on the first floor; they heard me pounding up the stairs and screaming for Gwendolyn up on the third floor in the ballroom (I was told this later by several people on separate occasions.)

Well. That set the tone for the day being pretty much absolutely perfect, so that being said, I'm just going to do the whole pictures-and-brief-commentary thing to spare you all a blow-by-blow of a ten-hour event.

And then we went to the beach to watch the sunset.



The end!
