All dressed up

IT Guy and I got all dressed up this evening and we actually had someplace to go. . . .  an awards ceremony for the media industry. There were a number of good things about this. It’s 11:48pm, though, so I’m going with a bulleted list here.

  • We looked good. I was able to wear a dress that I last fit into 12 years ago. I didn’t think I would ever be able to wear it again, but I did. I wore it again tonight.

We clean up ok.

  • IT Guy won an award for a video he edited.
  • I got to dress up and be escorted around by my handsome husband all night. Somehow hearing him say, “This is my wife” when he introduces me still hasn’t gotten old, even though we’ve been married for 18 years.


  • I wore heels! I almost never wear heels because, no matter how cute the pump, I always eventually want to saw off my feet. But tonight I wore 5 inch heels anyway. I actually made it for 4 hours before my feet started to demand amputation. Luckily, it was time to go, so I leaned heavily on IT Guy’s arm on the walk to the car. Once in the car, I immediately ditched the fancy heels for equally fancy (and yet infinitely more comfortable) UGGS.

Sometimes I even wear heels....


I don’t know. I think they kinda went with the dress.
