Thirty Days of Thanksgiving: Day 10, The United States Marine Corps

November 10th (the day on which this post was supposed to be published) is the birthday of the United States Marine Corps.  Mike has been a Marine since 1991.  I am very proud of him for doing it, for so long and so well.

The Marines are very proud of their birthday and celebrate it with a Birthday Ball.  It is usually pretty fun.  The Marines get to wear their dress blues, and their dates get to dress up.  For me, it has always seemed like adult prom with a fun dress, sassy shoes, and fabulous make up.

Isn't he handsome?
A big shout out to my friend Liz for loaning me the dress!  Love friends that come through in a pinch!
