Marine Birthday Bash!

No, it's not too early!  Don't even lie.  I know y'all have already started shopping for a dress! ;)

Semper Wifey is celebrating the Marine Corps' 236th birthday in a BIG way! 

From November 8-11, there will be a week long blogging celebration that YOU are invited to!  EVERYONE is welcome to participate...not just Marines wives! 

Each day will have a different theme.  All you have to do is write/create/photograph a blog post (you can even link up an old post) that relates to the theme, grab a party button, and link up your post at Semper Wifey!  Each post you link up (one per day) will enter you into a special giveaway for that day, plus each link will give your own blog more exposure!  (The winner must have a button on their post or sidebar to be eligible to win.)  One theme, one link, one prize, each day.  Make sense?  (If not, please email me!) 
  • Tuesday, November 8: Land of the Free!  Share a post about whatever you want!  Let's kick this off BIG!
  • Wednesday, November 9: Share a post about a Marine Corps/military/patriotic project/craft you've made/put together/photographed (ie. craft, birthday cake, recipe, outfit, poem, essay, etc.)!
  • Thursday, November 10: Share your happy birthday message to the USMC! 
  • Friday, November 11: Share a post about what you wore/will wear to the Birthday Ball! Or, if you'd rather, share a post about dressing up for a very special occasion (date night, wedding, birthday party--whenever you thought you looked especially good!).

Start brainstorming about your posts!  If you're a vendor, I would love to talk to you about giveaways for the Marine Birthday Bash!  Please email me for more information!  The Birthday Bash will provide TONS of FREE advertising for your product!

Don't forget to grab a button...or two!

  1. Hi -

    I just wanted to stop by and thank you for following me -- I'm returning the favor as your newest follower! :)

    I LOVE this idea of celebrating the Marine Corp. I look forward to reading more about it! :)

    Have a great Wednesday!

  2. Darn, I get just a teensy bit jelous at all the fun things Marine's have and all the super pride they and their families show. This doesn't so much happen up here :P Sounds awesome though! Have fun! (the dress shopping sounds great!)

  3. Definitely can't wait! Husband will be on deployment so this will be a great way to remember what he does as a Marine! :)

  4. Yay! I hope y'all will join in on the fun! :)

  5. Sounds like one heck of a celebration! My son wants to be a marine, so maybe I'll get him to write something or make something :)

    Your newest GFC follower from the About a Mom: Wild Wednesday Hop! Looking forward to seeing your wonderful posts! Would love it if you would visit mine :)

  6. What a great idea! I must remember to stop back and participate!
    I already follow...just stopping by to do some catch up reading..

  7. OH WOW, how fun will that be to celebrate in this way....

    I am following you back and appreciate you stopping by and following.

    Be sure to stop by A Creative Spirit often as every comment gets you an entry in a monthly drawing for a gift card... woo hoo.

  8. I'm super excited about this!! And YES, I've already started looking for a dress ;) The town I live in is slim pickins' all year, I need to get mine early hehe

  9. "This is right on. There are many times when I feel like I'll never make it through. We haven't done a deployment yet, but I know it's coming very soon. 'I can do ALL things through Christ who gives me strength.'"

    That's how it was for me for the past 3 years. No deployment, but knowing it was coming very soon. That verse has helped me so much knowing that I am not doing this is my own strength but God's. Thanks for commenting! :) Good luck find a dress!!

  10. This sounds like a fun celebration!

    I found your blog through MrsMamaHen military blog Monday interview! Thanks for letting me peak in.

  11. OH! This made me so excited. I can't wait to go... It's my first time. And yes... I may have been dress shopping around... :)

  12. Hi :) Just wanted to say I love this idea! I can't wait until the ball but now I'm excited to blog about the ball and freedoms!

  13. What I wonderful idea! I have a post that will be launching tomorrow at 10 am cst on my blog about your idea :) I am not a Marine wife, but I am a friend of a few. I'm excited to see everyone's posts and pictures from the ball.
