We are all a little weird and life's a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirndess and call it love.

Army Ball Saturday December 14th 2013

So...one of the perks of being in the army is getting all dressed up for a military ball.  This perk is only considered a perk by some (me...not Cole).  By golly...I wanted to see him in his dress uniform.  He was informed that he didn't have to wear it, he could wear a suit instead.  I will admit that I prayed his suit wouldn't fit (he hasn't worn it in SEVERAL years) which would FORCE him to wear his uniform.  As you can see, I got my way.  OH OH!  Let's not forget to mention that Cole failed to inform me about the date/time of the ball until a week before.  Luckily, I was able to find a dress that fit and the only alterations needing to be made were the length.  That NEVER happens, as Cole lovingly reminds me that I'm like an "amazon women."  Fortunately my good friend Malinda worked her sewing magic and fixed my dress right up :)

That was the easiest alteration that I have ever done. I love that you got pictures because you look beautiful! You should dare Cole to wear his blue's to church sometime so he gets his money's worth. :) James dared me to wear my wedding dress the day I gave my talk after we first moved into the ward. You can never be overdressed, right?!
