2011 KHAKI BALL IN GUANTANAMO BAY CUBA


Good morning to all my blogger followers this morning...Wow, its a beautiful Day here in Guantanamo Bay...Had a wonderful time Saturday night at the 2011 Khaki Ball... We enjoyed the night with our wonderful friends and met some new ones in the process.

This year I decided to wear a pants outfit 

( DID SHE JUST SAY SHE WORE PANTS TO A BALL? )



I know that wearing pants to a BALL is a  little nontraditional...

But for all those who know me understand that this Navy Girl has NEVER been one to be a follower.....(Smile)










I wore what made me comfortable... I encourage anyone who has an event to go to, To wear something that looks good and feels good as well.








To all my wives who are heading to your ball..
Please enjoy the night and make lasting memories. 

PLEASE Dress respectively, represent your husband with respect and always say a THANK YOU.




Remember to be safe and NEVER DRINK AND DRIVE. GOD BLESS.

      I have never been one to join the "Norm". I simply wore what I felt was presentable as well as comfortable.

  6. @Belinda.......I can not help but smile at the use of your words... My mother use to say I was a rebel...(smile) I have never been one to follow. I step out and try to do my own thing. I was actually going to wear a dress but later decided that comfort was more important. I am so glad that my story was one which interested you enough to stop by and share with my readers. Please feel free to come back anytime. Thanks for stopping by my blog Belinda!!!!

    1. Vickie,

      I doubt if I was the first and most certainly not the last. I just wanted to be comfortable. My husband loved the outfit by the way. (Smile)

  8. This is not a formal ball. If you look up Khaki Ball, the dress is really casual and the "extreme" is a cocktail dress. Always dress to the uniform your spouse/sig other is wearing and khaki is a working uniform for Chief Petty Officers.
    Have a great day! Love the pantsuit

God has blessed me with some WONDERFUL people in my life!

God has blessed me with WONDERFUL friends 

Have you ever stopped for a moment and said a thank you to God for all the wonderful people that he has placed in your life. I truly believe that you should. At least remind yourself of these blessings as often as possible. God has really blessed me to know some WONDERFUL people in my life. 









One of the GREATEST joys I have encountered in my military travels has been relationships that I have developed with friends. Most of the people who are in my life are military wives and they are all awesome in their own way. They have each touched my life and made it better in such a fantastic way. I really do mean that. I have such great memories of them.









Friendships of any kind are a gift from God. Having a friend that understands you and loves you makes your heart feel so full and their love is simply incomparable in my mind. I spend a lot of time sharing with my friends and letting them know just how important they ar…

PRAYER FOR FINANCIAL BREAKTHROUGH

Most of us are struggling to pay the mortgage... Most of us are struggling to pay our children's tuition. We work hard and yet we are constantly coming up short.....
I submit to you today that all of that can change through the power of prayer and a positive attitude. I personally believe that prayer has changed the circumstances in our home.




I believe that communication, prayer and honesty within a marriage, is key to maintaining financial freedom.












Secrets tend to destroy a relationship.








So sit down today with your spouse and openly discuss all financial matters in your house. When you pray talk to God about your finances.




Here is a prayer that we use in our home.


Hope this can help to strengthen your family and enable you to be at peace concerning your finances:




PRAYER FOR FINANCIAL BREAKTHROUGH




Father God, you are the source of all my sustenance. So I come to you today in prayer and I pray for you toHEAR ME AND GUIDE MEin your infinite wisdom.

My spirit is full, but my wallet is always…

Happy First birthday to the BEST GRANDSON ever....

I NEVER KNEW HOW MUCH LOVE MY HEART WOULD HOLD, UNTIL I BECAME A GRANDMOTHER FOR THE FIRST TIME....

Our family has been BLESSED with a NEW grandson. His name is Cameron and he is the most beautiful baby in the world. He has a smile that melts your heart and a laugh that is contagious. The first time I laid eyes on him, I loved him. I never knew how much love my heart could hold before our grandson was born. 













We are about to celebrate his first birthday and we are excited about the AMAZING future for the newest member of the Campbell family. Look at that face....
I hold him in my arms and I remember when my own kids were small and full of wonder. Grand kids are such a blessing and I plan on spending as much time as I can spoiling this beautiful baby (Smile)






THIS WAS A PERFECT MOMENT IN TIME






We love our kids and we hold them close to our hearts, but these grand kids tug a little harder and they make you forget how to say no (Smile) Where is my brain today? Is that a good thing or am I just …

I am finally Finding the strength I need to be strong as my youngest child Patrick prepares to step into his destiny!

Find the strength to be strong as your child prepares to step into their new chapter. I know that this will be extremely hard but you can do it. Remember to pray, pray and pray some more until you feel that peace that will allow you to let your child head out the door. Love them and let God carry them to this new and exciting phase. Remember you did so much from them. You bandaged their scrapes. You held them during bullying and you instilled all the right ingredients that will make them equipped for this college life (Smile) Its going to be OK.

Sometimes as parents we feel helpless and then God reminds us that he has it all under control!

Sometimes as parents we feel helpless and then God reminds us that he has it all under control! I have three children and one of them, my daughter is in college. She lives in Tallahassee Florida. I guess its about three hours away. I love and miss her so much but I know that she has a good head on her shoulders. My daughter has so much on her plate. Working, student government, her Sorority and studying. She spends most of her days away from her apartment and usually shrugs in after dark. That is where I worry. A beautiful young girl coming home at night but she assures me that she is strong and able to handle anything that comes her way. She said mom I got this, I told her no. God has it. (Smile)
