A Trip to Vienna
Well, maybe we didn't actually go to Vienna, but it sure felt like it! This weekend Josh and I and a bunch of friends/family attended a Viennese Ball! It was SO much fun. They decorated the place beautifully, and had a huge assortment of good food, music, dancing, and people. We danced to waltz music, swing, jazz, all played by a live orchestra. Of course, the best part (for me) was getting to dress up and see all of the other pretty dresses there. Yup, I'm still pretty much a 5 year old at heart.
My brother and his girlfriend made the drive there with us, the ball was located at a university in Wisconsin so it was a bit of a drive!
We listened to some live jazz at one point during the evening. They had a bunch of different rooms with different music playing so you could pop in and out of each one throughout the night, it was really fun!
They also had lots of Austrian/German themed foods. YUM. At one point, I snapped a photo of my sister eating a brat in an evening gown. Priceless.
Everything about the weekend was absolutely perfect, except for the hotel stay. I'm not going to go into great detail here, but let's just say that they had a rave going on until 6 am. Yup. A rave. So we didn't get any sleep that night, but it didn't really matter because we just went home and napped all day Sunday!
