A Man In A Uniform

We had a "dining out" Saturday night with Parker's squadron. It's an event meant to get everyone together and boost squadron camaraderie, but for me, it's a chance to get all dressed up and see that handsome man in a uniform. I don't think I am alone in saying I love a man in a uniform. Am I right ladies?? Even in just his flight suit, I think Parker looks so handsome in the military swag. The event was pretty fun. It was a little long-winded for both of us, but we had a great time with each other and met some new friends. I told Parker my favorite part honestly was the 45 minute car ride there when we jammed out to some tunes and giggled like 5 year olds. The fact that this was my favorite part tells me I should probably branch out a little. Maybe next time.

Anyway, back to the best part of this little dining out. The man in the uniform:


I'm a big fan of the whites! I've always had a slight obsession with the navy & white color combo (exhibit A: our wedding colors), so naturally I love this uniform. Here are a few other pictures from the evening.

My friend Kim and me!
Prom pose anyone?



 
Saturday night was a nice excuse get all gussied up and do something different. It makes up for the otherwise unproductive weekend we had (and I wouldn't have it any other way) :).

Looks like a great time! My boyfriend is Army ROTC, but even he can agree that Navy whites are pretty great.

Hands down the Navy has the best uniforms. (Should I admit that when I'm about to go visit the Air Force Academy? Hah) Looks like you had a great time getting all dolled up!

I could do without the flight suit, personally. They just look like car mechanics. However, I'm a HUGE fan of our service dress and mess dress (and Navy whites, which is what I grew up seeing my granddaddy in). Mm... Uniforms...

Oh my gosh! My man's homecoming is really soon and I can't wait to see him in his dress whites! The CO's wife is trying to have a dine in before their change of command in early August, so we might get to be all fancy again soon!

Being born and raised in Pensacola, FL-- which is the home of the Naval Air Station.. I have always loved a man in uniform. The crazy thing is, I'm not one of those gals that swoon over them-- now I'm the one that thanks them for protecting them for my freedom and thanks their spouse for supporting them throughout the journey!
