Military Brides

SO proposed last week!




And I asked my bridesmaids/matron of honor last week, 3/4 of them have said heck yes, one is out of town and hasn't gotten her card.

Plus today I bought my wedding dress! I knew which one I wanted, it's the ever popular DB lace/keyhole back one...

We're shooting for the end of August, as it'll be our three year anniversary of dating. :)

    Dude, there were cobras and hueys all around! I was so psyched to be out there near my favorite helicopters that I totally didn't realize what was happening!

    It was awesome!

    He's a Marine, and the MOH is in the Air Force (she's wearing her mess dress in lieu of a bridesmaid dress). I'm super psyched, we should have all branches represented at the wedding!

    I know! We'll finally get to live in doggy friendly housing! Hank is SO's and my doggy for everyone else. He's been living in Georgia until we could move where dogs are allowed. :)

    Awww, Stan, I'm so happy for you!  That's the dress that's caught my eye, too!  I'm waiting until I'm engaged to start trying them on, though.

    I can't wait to see your plans unfold!  We're planning for September 2012 after he finishes law school but before TBS, so likely I'll be posting the same news fairly soon!

    I knew it was coming too, as I want to be eligible to leave for training in the fall if my app is selected, and marriage has to happen first. We can be dress twins!

    You'll be doing OCS, yes?  We're going to go to the summer graduation for the PLC class (Marines who are going back to school rather than straight to TBS - lots of undergrads, but also JAG contracts in law school).  We've got a bunch of friends headed this summer, so we figure at least a few of them will graduate.

    I know you're very well versed with the Marines and probably very prepared for OCS, but if you have any questions about Quantico or the area, let me know.

    I definitely will, I had actually planned on trying for PLC, but I graduated earlier than I had planned, so it'll be OCC for me if I decide to commission. Enlisting is always on the table too, since I really want to get deployed, and being PTAD for fifty million months before TBS is not terribly conducive to getting deployed. ;)

    Thanks for all the congrats and encouragement guys!
