234 and counting!


Happy 234th Birthday to the United States Marine Corps! If there ever was a day to eat cake...this would be it! Next week at Nathaniel's squadron's birthday ball, you had bet your bottom dollar that I will. After watching the Oldest Marine present, the Youngest Marine present, and the Guest of Honor take the first bite, of course. Gotta love the many traditions of the corps.

Thankfully, I have yet to attend a birthday ball where the cake has run out. THAT would not be fun.

In the mean time, I'll leave you with this - a photo from the 2007 ball in Pensacola. Last year we were driving from Florida to California and celebrated together in Flagstaff, Arizona (there were beer samplers, desert, and a most excellent brew pub).


This year, I'm not really sure what's in store. I DO know that our ball is sometime next week...and I think I'll wear the same thing as I did 2 years ago (gasp!). I know, I know... major fashion faux pas. The good thing - is that no one in our NEW squadron has seen me in the gold dress. So everything is even. Just don't tell - thanks.

Additionally, I think our ball is being held near...Palomar... When I heard the news, I had initially planned on bringing my bike, and riding to the top the morning after.

Thankfully, I've since come to my senses.

Instead, Nathaniel and I will hike around the area and maybe take a day trip somewhere. Who knows. Ah - the joy of the off season + celebrations.

In all honesty - Happy Birthday to every Marine! Thank you for your commitment and sacrifice. And for picking the BEST uniform out there. Gosh, I still get tounge tied when I see Nathaniel in his dress blues. I knew I picked a good one...

Happy Birthday Marines!

happy birthday Marines! the first time I saw aarine in his dress blues i almost decided to me to cross commission out of college. have fun at the ball. I've been to two MC Balls. Way more fun than an AF dining out.

Oh, I hate AF dining out!! The food is crap, you end up with wads of tp and food stuck to you, and you leave soaking wet. Blah! I have to also admit that the Marine dress blues are so much better than AF dress blues! And my hubby knows it too! It just looks really funny when he has to tuck is pants in his boots...

Have fun at the ball!! Beautiful dress!

Seems to me since Nathaniel will be wearing the same thing that it's only fair that you should get to wear the same thing.

Happy Birthday to the Marines. Your gold dress is beautiful and if you spent money on a new dress that might be one less cute bike kit you could buy;)

Happy Birthday Marines - love that pic of you and Nate!

That's a beautiful dress. It would be a shame not to wear it again. Maybe just add a scarf or brooch or something so you won't get confused looking back at the photos. :)
