The Fanciest Event I've Ever Attended

On November 3rd, our family will be speaking at the 30th Anniversary Gala for the Ronald McDonald House of Baltimore.  We were asked back in June, and we eagerly accepted because we love talking about RMH in any capacity!  We recently got more details about the event, and WOW is it fancy!!!

I went shopping with my sister on Tuesday and managed to find an evening gown. Yep, an evening gown!  I haven't worn a formal dress since my senior prom!  (Well, is your wedding dress considered a formal gown?)  I actually found two, and am taking back one after showing both to Matt and letting him choose the one he liked best!

We'll be going next week to get Matt fitted for a tux, too.  He keeps trying to convince me to let him wear a suit, but that's not happening.  It's a black tie event, so tuxedo it is!

Although it's way out of our comfort zone, it's really exciting to go to such a fancy event.  I'm pretty sure I've never been to anything like it!  I'm not a dressy person, but it's fun to get all dressed up once in a while!  Plus, we get to talk about our favorite charity and share the miracles our family has witnessed!

Abby and Caleb will be coming too, although they won't be dressed up quite as much.  I think Caleb can get away with a suit, and Abby will wear some kind of a fancy dress.  My sister brought over a couple last night that I think will work.  I just want to figure out my dress so that we all kind of match.

This is a really cool opportunity, and it will definitely be something we won't soon forget!
