Mardi Gras Masquerade

Here are a few pictures from last night's bash. An official photographer also took a shot of the B's; I will post it when I receive it (unless I look terrible, that is!)
It's not every day that I get the excuse to wear my slinky red gown (which I'm proud to say I still fit in nicely; I bought it over 10 years ago). I found the perfect red feather mask at Party City to go along with it and Mr. B looked smashing in his tux and red accessories! Too bad the cell phone didn't capture all of us!
The masquerade was great fun; Mr. B bid on and won a nice bottle of scotch (32 years old); Mrs. B ended up with a few items that will eventually be gifts for others (except the wine gift certificate, that is).
We spent most of the evening chatting with brother Jon and SIL Shannon and the girls's Godparents (turns out their Godmother plays with the orchestra; something you'd think I would have known but I somehow didn't).
Food was catered by Blue Mountain Catering Co; bang up job of a Cajun meal.
Wine, dancing to a fantastic live band (the woman had a VOICE on her); really, a delightful evening and a nice way to end my stint on the Board of Directors for the Durham Symphony.

Our GM Kelly; probably the happiest I've ever seen her. The wine helped, I think :-)
