My sister told me I’d set myself up for this.
She told me that after my last post, you guys would expect some pictures of the ‘outcome’.
Too-tight dress, shapewear, dangly earrings and all.
But, since I love you guys, and I knew I’d feel guilty if I never got another picture of the evening, I had Asher take a picture of me before I left.
You see, Chris was out of town all this week, and his plane didn’t land until just before we were to head to the ball.
So I had to sorta drive my own carriage to the ball.
Definitely takes some of the Cinderella-ish-ness out of the experience.
I picked Chris up on the way and he took over the wheel so I could fiddle with my fake eyelashes.
And adjust my already uncomfortable undergarments.
I really miss my man when he’s gone.
Even when he has to wear a clip-on bow tie, I think he’s dashingly handsome.
Thank goodness. Because I’m sorta stuck with him.
And he with me. And my one ridiculously large laugh line. Geesh.
We had a great time at the ‘ball’, we even found our way to the dance floor a few times.
My guy can still cut a rug.
That’s how we first met, you know.
When he asked me to dance.

Coffee Please!?! says
very nice!! i wish i could squeeze into a dress from 2 years ago let alone longer ago than that. you rock!!
Oh, Stefanie! You look *beautiful* – I'm so glad you enjoyed your Cinderella night!!!
You guys make a gorgeous couple!
Oooh! I'm always giddy with delight when I'm the VERY first commenter! 🙂 You looked BEE-YOU-TEE-FUL, Stef! Just gorgeous. And I'm just green with envy that you can fit into anything that you wore 15 years ago! You were right…it was a classic. Tell Mr. Chris he's loooooo-king goooood too. 🙂 So happy you had a fun night out! Sending much love.
Oh, shoot! Coffee Please and Carrie must type super fast. 🙁
Such a handsome couple!!
Adorable, both of you!
Such great photos! Asher is a natural and must take after his mama! Glad you enjoyed your night out!
Colin and Jill Canada says
You should do the ball thing more often because you were made to look great in a LBD.
Tara Anderson says
You look absolutely fabulous…as was expected! 🙂
Wow..you look absolutely GORGEOUS! Movie star material!!! Glad that you had such a nice time together.
What a pretty girl you are.
Wild Olive says
You two look gor-ged! I was hoping you would post some pics. 🙂
Dah-ling, you look MAH-velous!!!
awww, Stefanie, you look lovely!!
Both of you….absolutely enchanting!! (Just like Cinderella!)
Really??? Fake eyelashes??? How did that work out??
Maybe you need to educate us all…well, at least me…
Do they really work?
Do they really stay on???
I am intrigued……
Stefanie – You are gorgeous. I was hoping that there would be pictures!
Please share the secrets of false eyelashes. I have a wedding in June and I would love to wear them!
You look great! I used to love when my hubby was in the Marine Corps and they had the ball every year. It was so fun to have a reason to dress up like that.
Glad you had fun.
The Ferrill's says
You are beautiful INSIDE AND OUT!
Thank you SO much for your faithful prayers for us…I love you! And your dangly earrings! 😉
Jennifer and Greg says
So nice to see you and Chris getting out for a night alone. You look great and it sounds like you had a wonderful time!
It is nice to get all dressed up every now and then.
I am sure the little girls and guys thought their Momma looked like a princess.
Glad you had fun.
Beach Mama says
I'm impressed that you can still fit into a dress from 15 years ago. The only thing I could fit into from 15 years ago would be maternity clothes! You and your hubby look gorgeous!
You both look stunning, such a cute couple! It looks like you bought the dress yesterday. A ball, how dreamy!
You guys look gorgeous!!! As much as I like to stay home, looking at those pics make me long for a night with my hubby!!! Glad you had fun:)
a Tonggu Momma says
Oh, I LOVE that you met on the dance floor! The husband and I love to dance… I've been ballroom dancing since college and he suffered through lessons one year as a Valentine's Day present for me. (And you look gorgeous, you know. And so! darn! young!)
Football & Fried Rice says
You went ALL out!! Is that a headband you are rockin? Not even kidding – you guys are looking good! We went to a "luncheon" the other day (SO much better than an evening banquet!) – I could wear "business casual" which I love SO much more than formal wear 🙂 I even forwent the spanx! Oh yeah 🙂 I could breathe AND eat – bonus!!
Another thing in common! So glad I said yes to the 1st dance request!
You look gorgeous. What a handsome couple you two are … inside and out!
Love & Blessings from Hong Kong,
You, my DEAR, look like a TEENAGER! Cinderella ain't got nothin' on you, Honey!
The shots of the two of you together are the BEST. I love the clock in the background…like Prince Charming has to get you home before the clock strikes 12. Just dreamy, you two are…yep, DREAMY!
So glad you both enjoyed a much needed date night!
3 Peanuts says
Aww. you look gorgeous Stef!!!! What a sweet couple you make!!!
You both are the crazy good lookin'-est parents of 9 that I ever did see 🙂
What wonderful pictures!! Hmmm..maybe you could use these for your next dossier. 🙂
OK – ya'll don't have many male readers – or at least commenters anyway – and I'm glad that ya'll got out and had a good time!
And at the risk of offending Chris (and some how I don't think that he'll be offended) – He is not wearing rose colored glasses when he looks at you – he is seeing you very clearly – you guys look great! You are so much like Marie – she won't admit that she's attractive either…..what's up with that anyway?
hugs – aus and co.
Sharon Ankerich says
One word… Beautiful!!!
Miss Anna B says
You are smokin' hot!! Seriously. Wowza!!! Wit woo….(that's that whistle sound guys make when a cute girl walks by). A definitely gorgeous pair you two make. On the insides and the out.
Glad you had fun and you are back together after a week apart.
Well, my friend… I think you are more beautiful than any Cinderella I have ever met! You and Chris make a most dashing couple, if I do say so myself!! 🙂 Gorgeous, simply gorgeous!…I still don't know how on earth you can have a daughter that is nearly 21, when you barely look a day over that yourself!! 😉
You looked beautiful as always! I am glad that you two had a great night!
