Memorial Day Parade

I know everyone has already put out their Memorial Day posts but my camera was lost for a while.

I LOVE parades! This year was the 125th anniversary of the Portsmouth Memorial Day parade (the oldest in the country!) The weather was perfect, we had a great spot and didn't have to park too far away. It was such a fun day.

Breakfast on the curb
We can't wait!!
Portsmouth's finest
Love those guys in uniform!
I loved the "Ah-OOO-ga" cars.
Of course there were high school bands and drill teams.
William was pretty tuckered out.

* William bumped his head on a ceiling fan hence the bandage. Poor guy!

Get Ready to Laugh!

My friend Stephanie had a really funny post and since I'm such a slacker when it comes to posting, I'm copying.

This website is so funny! You must check it out.

Here are a few that got me giggling.


Creepiest Prom Ever!

What on earth is the point of this photo? Look at my dog? Look at my GIANT squash?

I'm speechless. . .

Warrior Ball

Since Sean's sea duty is almost over, we won't have as many fancy formal dinners to go to. This might have been the last one, but it was a great one. Mostly because I got to pick a smaller sized dress that I actually liked and I didn't look like Dorothy from the Golden Girls (plus sized clothes are usually very 'drapey').
There was a pirate theme to the evening and there were tables decorated with pirate stuff. The favors were goblets engraved with the logo of the evening. They were filled with golden pirate chocolate coins. It took so long for dinner to be served, Sean ate both of our goblets of 'booty.' We didn't have much of a decoration, just a small third place trophy that our ship had recently won. Lame! If only I was in charge of the center piece for our table. . .
The only unpleasant thing about that night was the food. It was SO good! Now for a normal person, that is a good thing. For someone who can only eat 3 bites and be full to capacity, it was torture! The salmon, asparagus, and petit filets were perfect but I had to choose carefully what to nibble on. Then the rest of the meal just stared back at me, mocking me, while everyone cleaned their plate. Everyone must have thought I was anorexic or very picky. Such a shame!
After dinner and the speaker finished up, there was dancing until midnight. It felt so good to get out there and not be so self conscious or think I was the largest person there. It was a great night.
I hope we have a few formal nights in our new post (wherever that may be).

Happiness is. . . .

Happiness is the day you can comfortably fit into jeans that are a size smaller! Awesome!
