The Marine Corps Ball was on Saturday night,
and I got to attend on the arm of the most handsome officer there.
My mail order dress worked out for me (the smaller size- hallelujah!)- the cherries on top were that I did not have to purchase new unmentionables to fit the cut and it's machine washable.
Here's the whole dress and my cute friend Melissa
(we were handed roses when we walked in).We had a five course dinner and dessert after the formal ceremony. The Marines always put together a great video (shown at every ball worldwide) and our ambassador here in Ukraine is so easy to listen to- a very down-to-earth guy. I always get tickled when the Marines solemnly wheel in the birthday cake. They cut it with a sword and the first piece goes to the guest of honor (ambassador), then the oldest Marine present is served his piece which he then passes on to the youngest Marine- who was born in 1989!! Oh my- talk about feeling old!!
