Happy 238th Birthday, Marines!

Last year I sat out of the Marine Corps Birthday Ball. Three weeks before the ball I had a baby. I had willing babysitters, but I wasn't ready to leave her just yet. So Rob went solo last year and I stayed home with my infant.

But this year, I called up the best babysitters you can find (grandparents!), got me a dress, did my hair and makeup up right, and went to a ball. And I had a great time.

I don't have a lot of pictures from the event. Instead of obsessing about taking lots of pictures of my blog I decided to just enjoy myself and not worry about pictures. So sorry about the lack of pictures, but you will just have to use your imagination.

I have to say that this is my favorite ball yet. Rob wasn't in the ceremony so I got to spend the ball with him, which was the first time in the three balls I have already been to. The ceremony itself was good. A little strange in comparison with the other balls I have been too, but it was still good. The food was delicious. The company was excellent. It was a great night out. Plus I have a guy who looks pretty dang handsome in his Dress Blues. I am proud of my Marine and what he does.
