Marine Corps Ball 2011

Once a year we get to attend a ball 
to celebrate the Marine Corps Birthday.
It’s such an amazing feeling to be in a 
huge ball room filled with marines celebrating
the greatness of the Marine Corps & every single marine
past & present who have served our country.
This year was extra special for us,
not only because we got to celebrate with great friends,
but also because we had R. Lee Ermey as our special
He was so funny & so down to earth.
We got his autograph & he joked around with us,
which was hilarious & made the night that much better.
Hubby & I had pictures taken before
we went to the ball by the lovely Rach Lea Photography
 which are so fun for me to look at because we 
can not be serious & I couldn’t stop laughing.
I didn’t really try on my dress until the day of, so it was a little
 big on me. It hung off my torso too much, and was
a little too long, but I still loved the dress & onlytripped a few times lol. Plus I had
a little more room to move haha…
 

& here is a few pictures from the iphone….

Ball dress & sunnies…
Nails & Cocktail ring…
You may remember R. Lee Ermey from this great movie, Full Metal Jacket…
I am still jealous of the people who got to have Justin Timberlake
at their ball {You can read Justin’s blog post about his ball here}
I got my dress from Windsor Store online, & I am so impressed
with the customer service & shipping time, I really recommend them!
I hope you are having an amazing week, my week has been great…
working on a few projects & getting ready for guests next week.
Talk to you soon!
