The NC Governor's Inaugural Ball

Hello and Happy New Year to all! 

Many of you have been asking me for a blog update, so here it is!  

After taking a bit of a hiatus amidst the whirlwind that came with the holidays, I'm back on the blog!

Boy do I have a lot of catching up to do!

We'll start with the most recent and exciting event I had the pleasure of attending:

The NC Governor's Inaugural Ball!

Me & Miss B!

More than 3,500 people filled ALL levels of the Raleigh Convention Center for a night of dancing, dining, and top notch entertainment.

This was part of three days of festivities to welcome our new Governor, Pat McCrory, to the Capital City and celebrate the best that North Carolina has to offer.  

Welcome to Raleigh Gov. McCrory!

All of the food, wine, and entertainment had roots to the Tar Heel state.

My favorite part of the night: when the A&T drum line performed through the crowds! [photo credit]

People from all over North Carolina were there to indulge in an evening of pure glamour.  I met people from Charlotte, Wilmington, and Greensboro!

Lounging for a bit with little Miss B!

For me, this was also a chance to dust off the ol' ball gown and wear yet another glittery frock.  (I've had to put all of my fun dresses away since the holidays wound down. *sigh*)

My pals! xo

Now I need to find another ball to attend, or at least another chance to get dolled up in my absolute best.


  1. I love your dress, Linnie! It reminds me of the one Kate Hudson wore in How to Lose a Guy in 10 days. Looks like it was a fun event :)

  2. Hello!!

    Good to hear from you! Your comment is encouraging me to blog more -- I appreciate the compliment! I bought the dress years ago for that reason exactly: it reminded me of Kate Hudson's gown from the movie!

    Hope you're having a lovely new year!!


  3. Think I already said it on FB.. looking great as always luv
