238 Army Birthday Celebration

On Saturday we celebrated the Army's birthday at Camp Zama.  Military balls seem to be one of those things that people either love or hate.  Since this was only my 2nd ball, I am still one of those people who love them, I like to play dress up.  Since all of favorite people here were attending this ball, I loved this one even more.  It was a tad stressful trying to find a dress over here but I found  an unbeatable deal on one that was so far out of my comfort zone and went with it.  I didn't love it but I got a lot of compliments and since it was dirt cheap ($45) I consider it a win!

With my love.

Prom pose with our favorites!

This is our main crew here at Zama.  We love these people and cannot get enough of them!

Apparently we didn't say "fun picture" loud enough for everyone to hear it.  I love that we're all so Japanized that "fun picture" now translates to peace signs.

Our men...we are some very lucky ladies!

The ladies

With some of our awesome neighbors.

I love these ladies!

This woman.  I cannot say enough about her.  She is my rock here and I don't know what I'm going to do without my daily therapy sessions on her couch.  Thankfully we are both leaving with in a week of each other so we're going through this whole PCS process together.  She is a great friend and a wonderful role model.  I am certain will be a part of my life forever!

The food was blah and the room was sauna hot so we didn't stay long but we still had a great night with great friends.  I'm so happy we had this time together before we PCS in 2 months (EEEK!!!)

Your dress is my favorite out of all of those, definitely a win! I still love balls too, when SoldierMan can go with me.

Looks like tons of fun and I love your dress! Sometimes it's hard to step out of a fashion comfort zone, but I would count this as a win!
