Us and Our Steppin’ Out Attire

One thing about living in Southern California is that it seems like you rarely get “dressed up”.  Business is casual.  Parties are casual.  Flip-flops can be seen anywhere and everywhere.
So, it was with some excitement that we agreed to participate in a Science Education Gala that was being held at the San Diego Air and Space Museum at Balboa Park this past Saturday.  One of the exciting things is that it was a black-tie affair, which precipitated tuxedo renting and formal dress acquisition.
The gala was a very nice time and it was good to see so many people turn out for science literacy.  The keynote speaker was a biologist that has been heavily involved in studying the effects of microgravity on cells and bone.  She even flew a shuttle mission – I have to say I was a little jealous of that.  Unfortunately, since I knocked my camera onto our tile floor the other week, it’s been a little – err- testy, so we only got a couple shots at home when we got back.

We did two shots – with us alternating standing a step down from the other.
There should be more reasons to dress-up, I think.

  1. Such a lovely couple! I love the color and sheen of your vest and tie. My husband and I often comment to one another that we need more opportunities to dress up, but we do it so rarely that we often feel uncomfortably awkward when we are dressed up. **laughs**

  2. How wonderful – science education is truly underfunded. Great that you guys are attending events that support that! Yay.
    That's one nice looking couple – I hope you didn't stand too close to flammable curtains with those hot looks ;)

  3. I'm going to be a rebel and say that dressing up is whack!But to each his own and you guys do look nice.Much to her distaste Annie is a couple inches taller than me and always tries to arrange pictures that look like "gala2".
