Marine Corps Birthday Ball

Happy 233rd Birthday Marine Corps!

Nick and I went to the Marine Corps Birthday Ball last night down in Waikiki at the Hilton Hawaiian Village Hotel. It was a nice night out together, which we don't get often! It was also a fun chance for me to get all dressed up wear something other than shorts and a tshirt! (and actually put on some makeup!)

So a big thank you to our friend Sherree for watching our little ones while we went out for a few hours!

We started the night up in the CO's suite with some pupus and wine. They had a great spread...and an awesome ocean view! I would have been fine with standing out on their lanai all night. The food was so much better up there too!

A group of gorgeous "ugly" spouses!
Me, Lesley Rashman, Alaina Ladner, Kristina Attwood
We sat with these crazy couples and had a great night, despite the awful food!

This is what happens when you get a group of Marines together with a few beers.





I was impressed with some of the Marines out on the dance floor! I do like a man in uniform...but a Marine in uniform that can dance...oh my!
