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.
