The Utah Scottish Association's TartanBall

So...here we are in all our finery ready to attend the Tartan Ball. I got to wear my fancy cruise top once again and DH looked handsome in his kilt and formal shirt and vest. It's kind of funny because you saw everything from "ball gowns" on the younger women to a pretty casual pantsuit and everything in between. Lot's of kilts and dress Prince Charlie jackets on the men and some suits with tartan ties.

This year's event was held in SLC at the Joseph Smith Memorial building (formerly the Hotel Utah), luckily covered parking so we didn't get wet in the rain. Dinner was very good but not really very "Scottish"...no haggis alas...and the band was quite good playing mostly jazzy versions of standards to dance to.

DH H and I dated by dancing...no movies for us, LOL... and he is a great dancer. We did a lot of foxtrot and no waltzing but got complimented on our dancing as old as we are now. Later in the evening they through in some Scottish party dances and H and I enjoyed and even a group dance which allowed ladies without dancing partners to enjoy too. We had some fine table mates from Clan McGreggor and got to eat with the band! Now back in the day we ladies would have been swooning LOL

WE had a good time and managed to get home before 10 pm as you can see were aren't exactly party animals! LOL

You and your husband look wonderful together! It sounds like you had a great time. We missed you at the quilt show, but understood that the Scottish Festival is very important too.

Looking Good you two! Glad to hear that you were able to go this year. Sorry that you didn't feel the best and that you didn't get really haggis (yuck).
