Justin Timberlake at our Hotel for Marines Ball and Croatians in Costume!

Over the top Christmas at the Gaylord National
The Husband and I are in Washington DC until Wednesday and we are lucky enough to stay at the Gaylord National located on the Potomac River, it is a behemoth of a building with ballrooms and conference centers and something like 2000 "luxurious rooms"...their words, not mine.  I mean the rooms are nice, but we've seen better...

The Gaylord is in the process of decorating for far the little houses you see to your left are actually not so little.  They are full size houses that I am sure you can walk into and check out verious seasonal related things.  All of these are enclosed in a heated 12 story atrium. I believe these houses are representative of what the residences looked like in the early days of Washington DC...very similar to the Western Theme of the Gaylord Dallas...If you are lucky enough to score a room with an interior balcony you get to look out over this fabulous winter wonderland.  However, beware every 20 minutes or so a bright green spotlight flashes bringing to mind being abducted by martians versus a winter wonderland.

Last night after arriving alive yet beaten from the turbulence of our 5 hour United Airlines flight, the Marines were having a ball so there were tons of Military people in the Dress Uniforms and most of them were accompanied with their fat military wives, but, all in all they looked great and we saw a 3 star general, which for those of you who don't know, that means he probably carries a key to a nuke somewhere.  Another individual and also a famous one at that was Justin Timberlake.
The multi-talented star made good on his promise to attend the Marine Corps Ball with Corporal Kelsey De Santis in Richmond, VA
The next touch of randomness is a massive gathering of Croatians so in the midths of Military Uniforms, men in suits you have tons of individuals looking like this------------------>

At first, I thought they were elves for the Christmas theme, that would have been awesome!!!!!
