All dressed up

It happens rarely...VERY rarely. But I do get dressed up to go places.  A friend of mine asked me to be her +1 at a wedding in Georgetown recently.  it was quite the affair!!!  Formal reception, boat cruise down the Potomac!  How could I say no?
We set out on the Oddessy   III for a 2 hour Potomac River tour. 
It was a neat way to see all of the monuments in Washington, DC
My +1
 Then we had a formal reception at a swanky loft space in downtown Georgetown that was formal.  Not sure I've ever been to a formal reception before but we got 'doodled' and headed out.
 Multiple open bars, wonderful passed canapes and a terrific band.  It was quite a bit of fun but definitely something out of my normal element
It was a lovely evening with a loving couple. 
 But I'll pick my pjs on the couch with the dogs any day. ;-)

Looks like a lovely time. You don't half scrub up well:)
