Scarlett Johansson is the latest star to receive an invitation to a Marine ball, but unlike Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake, Scarlett had to decline.
In a recent YouTube video, Sgt. Dustin L. Williams asked Scarlett to be his date for the November 10th event, but Scarlett said no, and sent him some champagne instead. âI feel incredibly honored to have been invited to the Marine Corps Ball by Sgt. Dustin L. Williams," Scarlett said in a statement. "Sgt. Williams, unfortunately due to prior commitments I will not be able to attend the Ball with you this year but I am sending you a case of Moet and Chandon with gratitude. In my absence, I raise a glass to you and all the men and women of the U.S. Marine Corps, past and present, in thanks for your continued commitment to preserving the safety of our nation.â
Now that's cool. I love all of these celebrities honoring our military! And special shout-out to my brother in-law who's serving with the USMC in North Carolina!

First a Marine asked Mila Kunis to his Marine Ball and she said yes.
Then a Marine asked Justin Timberlake to her ball and he said yes.
Now, this guy is inviting Betty White to his Marine Ball! I wonder what she'll say?
If you love your freedom, thank a Veteran. They make so many sacrifices for us and our country.
I witnessed firsthand my brother in-law miss the birth of his daughter this past March because of his deployment and this is just one example among thousands ofÂ other stories military families could share.
Hats off to you Veterans, this country wouldn't be the same without you.
They Got To Me...
The two guys from A Great Big World stopped by the Mix studios to sing their hit, "Say Something" and it happened...I cried.
If you have not listened to the song yet...well...I suggest you do, but don't cry :( These guys are very nice and I wish them nothing but success!
I recently spent some time a La Reve...want to see what I enjoyed?

Create a Pest Management Calendar
Is your mailbox filling with next year's calendars? Put them to use managing pests in the garden.
No, I'm not talking about smashing insects with the rolled up calendar. Instead, use them to develop a pest-monitoring calendar for next year.
Take a few minutes to review this year's garden journal. Look for notes on any pest problems you encountered. Make a note to watch for these pests in next year's calendar. This helps with early detection; a key to successful control.
Consider adding notes about the weather and control measures you tried that were effective. Try using preventative eco-friendly measures like barriers and traps to prevent problems. Covering your cabbage, broccoli and cauliflower before the cabbageworm moths are active allows you to prevent damage.
Setting out shallow cans of stale beer will help you minimize feeding damage by slugs and snails during wet weather.
A bit more information: No garden journal? This is a good opportunity to create one that includes your growing successes, failures as well as pest problems. Use a spiral notebook, three-ring binder or computer calendar or spreadsheet. Just make it easy and fun. That way you are sure to keep recording, referencing and putting your gardening experiences to work.
