Marine Corps Ball 2012

As many of you know I am a very proud Marine wife who loves my Marine more than anything in the world.  Every year as a marine wife I get the pleasure of attending a ball for the marine corps birthday along with all of my husbands fellow marines. The ball is a time to celebrate the Marine Corps and all it stands for, & to celebrate our marines & everything that they do. There is always lots of laughs, lots of food, lots of dancing & lots of reminiscing on the history of the marine corps.

Of course for the girls, including me, there is a lot of planning that happens before the ball. The dress, the hair, the jewelry, the makeup, the shoes, the purse… It never stops. Even though I must say I hardly did any preparing this year & everything was done very last minute. & of course the men, including my husband get a fresh haircut and put on their uniforms, shine their shoes, & all look very handsome in their blues.

I am so proud of my husband and everything that he does. I am so grateful that we have the marine corps ball once a year to celebrate the marine corps & that we have a reason to celebrate all of our marines.

I didn’t take many photos at the ball, but I did take some via instagram. You can follow me (here) Here are a couple that I took, I won’t overload you with photos.. o wait, too late!

And, here is a picture of us at least years Marine Corps ball…

Last years dress was my favorite dress of all the years we have gone. I loved all of the bling  & it was so different than any other dress that night at the ball. Last years dress was from, I did my own makeup & my hair was done at a salon. I loved this years dress as well, it fit me like a glove & was very easy to move around in.. We did a lot of dancing this year & I’m glad I didn’t have to worry about any wardrobe malfunctions 😉 How embarrassing would that would be.. o my! This years dress was from Group USA in Concord, NC. I did my own makeup this year {I love doing makeup!!} & my hair was done at a salon.

Isn’t he a handsome guy? & what a trooper for taking some pictures with me before the ball, got to love him. I regret not getting more pictures throughout the year with him in his uniforms, I need to get better at that. Have you been to a marine corps ball before? Do you have a marine in your life? Or any other military member? I would love to hear about it.. I love meeting other people who are associated with the military, we all share a bond that is very strong & let’s face it we all understand each other in some way or another 😉

  1. The answer is YES, if the h – CG (human chorionic gonadotropin)
    is obtained without a valid prescription from a physician (MD
    or DO). Although you’ll find many versions from the diet regime employed
    with HCG drops, numerous of them are severely calorie restricted and need
    to have you to location four drops of your HCG mixture underneath the tongue twice a day.
    But if you need to cheat, there are ways you should utilize to be sure that you lessen the chances of
    fats getting stacked in your body.
