Can I be real with you folks for a minute?
When am I ever not real with you? But that's besides the point.
I do not get excited about military functions. Usually there's a lot of ma'ams and sirs and stand, sit, stand, salute. I'm a down home kinda girl. I'd much rather have everyone over for dinner than worry about if my dress is fancy enough or if I waited to let my husband introduce me in a receiving line rather than introducing myself.
I'm an army wife. If I can take care of myself during deployments I can certainly introduce myself. Duh.
But readers, I promised I would keep it real. And the real truth of it is, I had a good time. A really good time.
Since we're keeping it real I feel obligated to tell you: I also had 4 glasses of wine.
