famous in a small town

Last night we were lucky enough to be invited to an event in support of our current Commonwealth's Attorney, Trip Chalkley, who is seeking re-election.  I don't know Trip personally, but my brother-in-law, Dave, used to work with him.  I do, however know his wonderful wife, Stephanie.  She was my long term sub while I was on maternity leave with Bryce and she is AMAZING!!
Dave was very generous to bring us along for the event.

I do love an excuse to get dressed up and enjoy a night out with my hubby! 

I saw quite a few people I knew and I was thrilled to visit with my teaching bestie, Donna.

The event was held at the beautiful home of former delegate, John Cox.  His home is so nice it has a name, "Norwood".  We even got souvenir cups with a sketch of the house!

My picture is a little blurry because I was trying to be sneaky while capturing this picture as we walked in.  I felt like I was in a scene out of Sweet Home Alabama!  Something about that banner over the balcony seemed so southern to me!

Whoever named the signature drink did a great job.  I love a play on words and this one was perfect! 
I was so undecided about what to wear to the event and decided the original dress I had bought was too casual so I went out at the last minute after getting a pedicure and found this fun dress at Dress Barn.  This isn't typically a place I shop, but it was close by, and I got tons of compliments on it!!

If you're a resident of Hanover, please make an effort to go out and vote to re-elect Trip Chalkley on June 9.

Out of that whole blog post, I love the fact that you pulled a Grace, and went and bought a new dress because you didn't like the old one. You crack me up. Jason cleaned up nice--you typically look nice all the time. :)
