O my I am so excited! going to a ball tonight! bought myself a new dress, shoes, handbag, underwear (reaaaalllly nice!!) and went to the hairdresser. Got myself a new haircollor, kind of brown/red/ eggplant and now I am getting into the tub and soak for an hour!
Then I hope my hubby gets out the champagne (the real thing frome France, got that for my 40th birthday) and we'll have a nice time before going to the ball
Now this is a very special occasion, that's why I write about it here.
It's the annual marineball (the 246th anniversary of the corps) and this year is very special. Since 11/9, there was talk of canceling of course, due to security etc, but thank God it is on!
Everybody going there will be asked to give something for the kids of the NYFD and NYPD, so there is a very good goal going there too.
I am really going to enjoy this evening with my Mike, first time we're able to go out just the two of us since ages!!
(remember we had to cancel our New York trip, due to everything that happened!)
Take care and think of me, I'll think of you all when the stars and stripes are being played,
