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 😉

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you?
