Today is the 236th birthday of the Marine Corps. Last night Daniel’s battalion had an annual Birthday Ball to celebrate. It’s only the third one I’ve been to since we’ve been together (over 6 years now) because of D’s deployments. It was a lot of fun, but I was a bit bummed I couldn’t take advantage of the open bar. And oh my Lord, does my baby belly look HUGE in that dress! It’s crazy how big I look in some things but not others. It was really the only dress I could find that looked decent on me. Anyway, I would just like to take a moment to thank my amazing hubby and his fellow Marines for all that they do. Happy Birthday Marines!
