Rob is a part of the Oklahoma National Guard. He has served as the Battery Commander of his unit for close to two years and is a Chief Warrant Officer 3 as well. Military is in his blood. It is a part of who he is. For the third time, I had the privilege of attending the All Saints Ball with him this past weekend. It was hands down my favorite year for the ball. We had an incredible night. We laughed with friends, danced liked fools, drank a little more than needed, and just plain had fun.
My girlfriend Grace met me at the hotel in Oklahoma (she lives about 30 minutes away now) to do my hair and make-up. I abandoned the glasses and chose looking glamorous over having better sight
My girlfriend Meli loaned me this GORGEOUS dress. It fit like a glove and I have never felt better in a piece of clothing

Soldiers have requirements for their dress blues. Violations to the requirements are $2 fines for their annual fundraiser. Every prepared soldier is supposed to have his pen. Apparently, they aren't easy to take out of the inside coat pocket.
So lucky to be by his side. Crazy proud of him

Changed into our "civies" for the after party for dancing. Probably a good thing because he kept stepping on the back of my dress!
