BYU Law Barrister Ball

First off, if you're like me and aren't 100% sure what a barrister is, it's just a fancy pants word for attorney. Specifically, it is used in Britain to refer to an attorney who can argue in the higher courts. Most law schools host an annual Barrister's Ball to honor students. Brad and I weren't able to go last year because I was super pregnant and not feeling up to dancing the night away. We didn't go the year before either... though now I can't remember why... So we were absolutely determined to go this year. 

BYU's ball is a semi-formal event, so we were excited to try out our new digs. My eShakti dress was the perfect fit for the event, and I'm so looking forward to telling you all about Brad's custom suit from Magro Clothing. But seriously... men should own custom suits! More on that in a future post. 

Anyways... We had such a great time at the ball. It was held in the Marriott ballroom here in Provo. 

The food was amazing too! I had the chicken and Brad had the steak. Both were delicious, and the cheesecake? To die for. 

I won't go on and on gushing over Brad since that would just embarrass him completely. But I will say that it was an awards dinner, and Brad received two really special awards. I'm so proud of him and all the hard work he has put in the last three years. He has been an amazing student, and even more importantly, he has been the most amazing husband and father through all of the pressure of law school. I know, I said I wasn't going to gush and there I went. Promise, I held myself back. 

If dinner and dessert wasn't enough already, they had an ice cream cookie sandwich truck during the dance. We were totally stuffed, but you just don't say no to a warm cookie sandwich! They were seriously amazing. 

In all, it was a wonderful night. It was good to get out of the house, just the two of us, wear a totally non-nursing friendly dress, and celebrate all the accomplishments of this amazing man of mine by dancing the night away. 

A night of dancing was just what the doctor ordered for us! Everyone should go out dancing with their spouse. It's a great date, where you can talk and catch up while also being active and enjoying seeing each other all gussied up. 


  1. I'm glad you guys had fun! It looks like a blast! <3

    1. It really was fun, Susannah! We will take any excuse to get dressed up and go dancing!
