Happy 3rd Anniversary

to my Honey Bunches of "Oaks"!
January 2011
 Honey, I love you with all of my heart!
I can't believe it has only been three years since
we got married. 
June 29, 2008
 Sometimes it seems like much longer,
And sometimes it seems like only yesterday.
 I really wish you could be here at home so we can celebrate
together, but I can wait the three days until you come home. :)
Rough day on the river, 2008.
Next year, the Army isn't going to steal you away from
me on our anniversary! 
Pre-Deployment Ceremony, Sept. 1, 2009.
 Even if I have to break your leg,
you'll be at home with me! {I'm only kidding! I would never
break his leg!}
December 18, 2010
 I can't wait to spend the rest of our lives together!
I love you with all of my heart and don't
you ever forget it!
Olive Juice!

RTT: The ants get out their little ant cellphones and call up their ant buddies...

"Hey! Come check out this smorgasbord in this kid's room!"

It's Tuesday! And that means it's time to be random and not sound like a crazed lunatic! Keely has been on hiatus for twelve, thirteen, fourteen weeks FOREVER! And since it doesn't look like she's going to be the Queen of Random ever again, we must press on! Because that's what we are forced to do our fearless leader would want us to do!

If you're going to participate in this week's RTT, be sure to link up on this post or over with Stacy; She is carrying the RTT torch and keeping the Random alive! {with wine!}
  • I can never think of random things at random. I have to do them in chronological order or I get confused. Is that random or what??
  • Yesterday, when Mama and I got to Nana's house, the nurse was already there. Behind her car was a giant tree branch that had fallen from the neighbor's tree. Miraculously, it missed her car by less than two feet! This is the branch: {Mama and I moved it to the curb.}
  • Apparently, my Anniversary is Wednesday. Did you know? I didn't. Facebook felt the need to remind me that Jeremy won't be here for our 3rd anniversary.
  • Oh, and that I should message him. Really? How romantic. 
  • I finished reading the book that Chantal was nice enough to let me win in her giveaway. :) If you haven't heard of Alice Bliss, you need to read it. It's really sad, but it's really a great book.
  • Speaking of books. Do y'all have a goodreads.com account?? If you do, add me! I'd love to know what you're reading! 
  • I bought Zelda: Ocarina of Time on the Wii! Awesome sauce!!
  • J had bought 007 for the Wii because it came with a gold controller that I needed to play my Zelda game. I tried using it and it was pretty complicated to play with that style, so I tried to take it back. Even though it had only been 4 days, I had the receipt and the game itself wasn't open, GameStop wouldn't take the game and controller back. The guy said that he could give me $5 for the game and $3 for the controller even though they were both brand-new. {And originally the set was $49.99!} How ridiculous is that?? I just kept the game and controller. Stupid GameStop.
  • I promised a pic of my new "do". This is not the greatest pic...sorry.

  • Have you heard of regretsy?? That website is hilarious! I stayed on there for hours last Thursday! 
  • I have exciting news about J, but he told me I'm not allowed to tell anyone yet. *sigh*
  • I spent the weekend at my sister's and Mama's. I left Friday afternoon and stayed Friday night and Saturday night with Amanda. And Sunday night with Mama.
  • Saturday: Amanda, Tim, the babies and I went to Old Navy to check out their $2 tank-top deal. {We were, of course, too late for the sale. It was, after all, 3 pm.} A woman almost ran over us while we were walking across the parking lot!
  • Friday and Saturday night, we played Trivial Pursuit. I love that game! I'm pretty good at it and won once!
  • Here's The Princess giving herself kisses in the mirror at the park Saturday.
  • Sunday, it was too hot to function, so I just chilled at Mama's house. 
  • Facebook is still reminding me that my anniversary is Wednesday. And Facebook is also trying to tell me that Shakira and Avril Lavigne are related to my post... Um, no they're not.
  • Mama and I drove to Trussville to have lunch with Miranda yesterday and when we got to where she works, I noticed a "katy-did" on the windshield. It had ridden all the way from Mama's house. When we left to go back to Mama's, the "katy-did" was still on the car. I checked before I left Mama's to make sure it wasn't still on there and I didn't see it. But when I started down the road, it was still there!! It made it all the way home with me!
  • I steam-cleaned the carpet in the living room Tuesday and trapped Sabrina in the kitchen. She didn't like it too much, so she escaped. 

  • This is the second version of this post since Blogger ate the first. I'm slightly upset, peeved, mad, livid! This post only feels mediocre at best...
  • J has some pretty exciting news but he won't let me share it yet... *sigh*.
  • The whole post title has to do with a conversation I had with Amanda yesterday. Apparently Boog had crushed some crackers all over the floor in his room and the ants had found it. She said that the ants were little "scout ants" and they found the crackers and pulled out their little ant cellphones and called in their ant buddies. {Holy run-on sentence Batman!}
  • I told y'all I would post a pic of our bed after I rearranged the bedroom. I completely forgot about it until now, so here ya go:

    • Mama and I stopped at Dairy Queen after leaving Nana's yesterday. We had some yummy ice cream in waffle cones. It was very messy!
    • I sent J a message on Facebook to tell him about our anniversary, but it seems it didn't help. I told you Facebook, there's no romance in a message. Mmmk? 
    That's all the random I can muster this week. Be sure to leave your link at the bottom of this post! I can't wait to read all the randomness! Have a great RTT!

    I'm thinking of doing a few
    of my favorite books. 
    What do you think?

    Mil-Spouse Friday Fill-In

     Yay, it's Friday. That's one day closer to J coming home. I'm just about bored out of my mind waiting on him to come home. There's absolutely nothing to look forward to. Except blogging. And more energy in Gardens of Time on Facebook...

    Are you a different person than you were five years ago? submitted by Sisterly Thoughts
    Yes, I definitely think I am. Mainly because Daddy died 5 years ago. I used to be more bubbly and care-free. Also, going through J's deployment changed me a lot. I don't cry as easily as I used to. I'm much more defensive and stand up for myself when I need to. I'm not so sure that's a good thing really.

    If you could go on Amazing Race, who would you take with you as your partner and why? submitted by Thoughts from a Poekitten
    Duh, Jeremy. Or if I wanted to survive, Bear Grylls. Jus' sayin'...

    Does Facebook or Twitter actually bring more stress or good in to your life? submitted by Just an Arizona Girl
    I only have Facebook and I don't feel any more or less stress with or without it. I like keeping up with my friends from high school and old co-workers.

    June is National Soul Food Month- what's your soul food? submitted by NH Girl Displaced
    Cornbread and butter beans! That's my favorite. My Daddy always put mayonnaise and torn up pieces of loaf bread in his butter beans. I like it that way too. So yummy! 
    If you could live in any other era than the current, which one would it be & why? submitted by Sugar in My Grits
    Oh wow. I've thought about that a lot. I think either the 1800s or the 1960s. LOL.  I love reading the Dear America series but am a flower-child at heart. :)

    RTT: Warning: This post is full of links and randomness.

    Tuesday, random. Do it. 
    Keely has been on hiatus since Pirates were discovered pilfering for the first time. {A really, really long time ago.} And I think she likes it. Obviously. But Stacy is keeping the random rebellion going. She has pickets and wine and everything. So check out her blog, link up and ramble be random. 
    • It's Tuesday, but I'm not even excited about it.
    • It's 0400 and I'm still up. As in, I haven't been to sleep at all.
    • I got in bed before midnight and finished watching some recorded shows, then started reading Alice Bliss. (I received it via UPS Monday afternoon!) By page 65, I had already teared up 4 times. Halfway into the book I was ready to full-on cry. It is so sad. I already know what's going to happen just by the way the characters are acting.
    • I can feel myself slipping into that depressed-mood I had going on while J was deployed. This book is dangerous. I'm glad I'm reading it now though instead of last year.
    • I really miss my Daddy. :( Father's day went by without a tear but it didn't make me miss him any less. I drank a glass of woota-woota in honor of Daddy. :) He loved his chocolate milk.
      •  I really wish Jeremy could come home now. Isn't three days enough?
      • Secret Life (of the American Teenager) was lame yesterday. There wasn't really anything going on that wasn't going on in the other episodes... Next week's looks promising though.
      • Had Chinese last night for dinner. Yummy!
      • Played around with my Google Star map thingy for awhile earlier. Did you know there's a star named Betelgeuse?? It is classified as a red super giant in the constellation Orion. It is the 8th brightest star in the night sky and the 2nd brightest in the constellation. I thought that was pretty interesting. It's supposed to explode within the next million years. Let's look forward to that. Who's with me?
      • So, I've been thinking about Christmas next year. If the world ends just before Christmas, as all those psychics have foretold, what's the point in buying them presents. Right? {Just so you know, I don't believe any of that mumbo-jumbo.}
      • This is probably one of the coolest pictures EVAH!
      • Finished reading Memoirs of a Geisha and it is one of the best books I've ever read. Only deal is, I can't figure out if it's a true story or not. The beginning is very misleading.
      • So there's this Mormon guy, Jon Huntsman who is going to run for President next year. Should be interesting.
      • This  looks like fun. I think I'll go dump out a bunch of cans of food so I can have the cans.
      • Robin Williams is a comedian after all... *excuse the expletives*
      • This cracks me up. Can you figure it out??
      • I love this! Thank you Luke Ramsey.
      • God created such a beautiful planet; do you ever take time to just stop and appreciate the beauty of a tree?
      • You HAVE to look at these beautiful photos of Six Flags in New Orleans post Hurricane Katrina.
      • This sounds like fun.
      • I do realize that the majority of this post consists of links, but I was bored and stumbleupon.com delivered. 
      • Have you ever??? Me either! Isn't he the cutest? Reminds me of The Jungle Book.
      • Did you know you can make your own homemade chalk?? I think this is the coolest idea EVER! And you probably already have all the supplies you need except for the plaster of Paris and the paints. But seriously, this would make a LOT of chalk!
      • Awwww x 10 million=

      Cat Hugs Baby Kitten Having Nightmare - Watch more Funny Videos
      • Can anyone give me ideas for 3rd year anniversary gifts for J? Our anniversary is only 8 days away!

      I think this is probably enough random for one Tuesday. I hope everyone is having a better start to their Tuesday than I am. Be sure to link up and join in on the randomness and check out all those links! It should keep y'all busy while I take a nap on the couch. It's so much cooler in here than in the bedroom. Why is this??

      Six Word Saturday

      Jeremy left mess
      in his wake.

      Seriously, he must have drug out everything just to
      pack for his two week WLC. It's ridiculous. 
      There is clothing, shoes, trash and miscellaneous
      junk everywhere! I really have my work 
      cut out for me this weekend. 
      Not to mention, we have ants all over the kitchen 
      counters now. We can't figure out where they're
      coming from and we sprayed but they're not going away.
      They're actually getting worse.

      Think you can handle a Six Word Saturday??
      Then head on over to Show My Face with Cate and link up!
      Hope everyone has a great weekend!

      Date Night

      Last night, or rather this morning at midnight, we had an inpromptu
      date night. We went to the midnight showing of Green Lantern.
      It....was...AWESOME! Epic even! 

      I mean, c'mon, Ryan Reynolds!!!
      He's even hot green!

      I won't spoil the movie for the rest of y'all. But I will say this:
      Parallax (the creature of fear) is really scary! 
      And Ryan Reynolds is pefect for the part of the Green Lantern.

      Mil-Spouse Friday Fill-In

      I got a little behind this week. Jeremy's sister, Miranda came up Wednesday morning. She and I went to the movies with her 5-month-old son, {H}. (He was pretty good for a baby in a movie theatre full of little kids!) We watched Monsters vs. Aliens. (Love that movie.) So anyway, my point is, I didn't get to post Wednesday because we were so busy. 

      1. Underwear Parties, how old is too old? submitted by Wookie & Co.
       What is an underwear party?

      2. What was your favorite class in high school? submitted by Adventures of M-Squared
      Art, Math and English.

      3. Have you ever convinced packers/movers to pack something they aren't supposed to for a PCS? submitted by Ground Control to Major Mom
      We've never PCSed or had anyone pack for us.

      4. Blogging plays a growing roll in the media. If you were asked to embed as a blogger with a deployed military unit, would you go? What do you think your blog would be like? submitted by To the Nth
      If it were my husband's unit, then yes. Otherwise, no. I don't want to be in some foreign place without him. I don't know how my blog would be. I don't even know how it is now. LOL.

      5. Do you think kids should attend year-round school? submitted by Marrying the Navy
      No way! (Unless they want to.) Kids need time to be kids!

      Happy Flag Day

      Flag Day is celebrated every year on June 14.

      As the legend goes, it was George Washington and two other members of the Continental Congress who asked Betsy Ross to sew the first American flag sometime in the late spring of 1776. The young widow was only in her early 20's when she completed the first flag with thirteen stars arranged in a circle.

      A year later, the Continental Congress officially adopted the design for the national flag, 
      and henceforward the Stars and Stripes symbolized the U.S. around the world. 
      The first "official" Flag Day was celebrated in 1877 - the flag's centennial. In 1916, a grass roots movement resulted in President Woodrow Wilson issuing a proclamation that called for a nationwide observance of Flag Day on June 14. Although still not an official holiday, Flag Day was made a permanent observance in America in 1949 by Congress who resolved "That the 14th day of June of each year is hereby designated as Flag Day."
      Why red, white and blue? To the original members of the Continental Congress, red stood for hardiness and courage, white for purity and innocence, and blue for vigilance and justice. 
      Why thirteen stars and stripes? They represented the thirteen American colonies which rallied around the new flag in their fight against the British for self-governance.
      The thirteen colonies included Connecticut, Delaware, Georgia, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, South Carolina, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and Virginia.
      To this day, thirteen stripes still commemorate the original colonies. Instead of thirteen stars, today the number of stars on the US flag has grown to 50, representing every state in the Union. 
      How to celebrate Flag Day
      Wave Old Glory from the front porch, apartment balcony or window, or attend Flag Day parades or festivities sponsored by local organizations.
      Hold an open house or a backyard barbecue. Decorate the backyard in red, white, and blue. A Flag Day menu might include lots of American favorites like hamburgers, hot dogs and, for desert, how about an American flag cake?

      {All information found here. All photos taken by me. :)}

      RTT: "I fight gangs for local charities and stuff"

       AHH Tuesday... quickly becoming my favorite day of the week. I can't imagine why. This is what, the 12th week of Keely's hiatus? It has reached epic proportions. I fear she has become consumed in this malevolent thing called work. Anyone feel like going to rescue her?? I totally would, were I closer. Anyway... let's keep this random going on. Forward ho!

      Don't forget to link up at the bottom of this post if you're participating in RTT and/or over at Stacy Uncorked. Stacy is keeping the random rebellion alive, with wine! 
      • "The Last Song" was a big disappointment. Miley Cyrus isn't very good at acting if you ask my opinion. 
      •  Honey Smacks aren't as gross as I remember them being when I was little. Especially since I can buy the name-brand ones now. LOL.
      •  I finally finished My Booky Wook by Russell Brand. It really is like reading a book written by a drugged-out lunatic, but there you have it. It was quite interesting and I still like him, but it helps to know why he is the way he is. Haha.
      • I love The Princess Bride.
      • "Mawage. Mawage is wot bwings us togeder tooday. Mawage, that bwessed awangment, that dweam wifin a dweam...""And wuv, tru wuv, will fowow you foweva..." "So tweasure your wuv."- The Impressive Clergyman
        "Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die."- Inigio Montoya
        Inigo Montoya: You seem a decent fellow. I hate to kill you.
        Man in Black: You seem a decent fellow. I hate to die.
        "There's a shortage of perfect breasts in this world. It would be a pity to damage yours."- Westley 
        "I fight gangs for local charities and stuff." -Fezzik
      • I'm now reading Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson. I really like it and can't believe I haven't read it before. I think next, I'll try to read either Jane Eyre or Anna Karenina sine they are both free to download on my Kindle for Android. {That's on my phone y'all!}
      • I nearly drowned myself yesterday. I jumped in the pool with Jeremy {we held hands and it appeared to be a suicide pact} and when I came up, I quit holding my nose and immediately I sank back under {of course} and forgot to kick. Hence, I swallowed a mouthful of {most likely tainted} pool water and it went up my nose as well. 
      • I jumped back in a few minutes later in order to save face and to prove I wasn't afraid. That time I hit the bottom with my right foot and came up "Oww-ing". I blame Jeremy.
      • Sabrina went to the groomers yesterday. She is so skinny-looking and prettiful. :)
      • Just got side-tracked on Facebook for thirty minutes...jeez. 
      • J is leaving this Friday for his WLC {Warrior Leader Course} in Mississippi. He won't be home until the 2nd. :( Booo! Our anniversary is the 29th. *sigh*
      • Any ideas on what to get J for our 3rd anniversary?? This year, the traditional gift is leather, but he doesn't want a new wallet or anything. And he has plenty of belts. So, I'm thinking of not bothering with the leather part. What are some other gift ideas?? 
      • My goal for the length of Jeremy's absence is to finish entering all the books I have logged in my notebook into Goodreads. It's a lot easier to keep up with all the books I've read and how many times I've read them. 
      • I also need to find a job, so I'll be filling out as many applications as I can. I'd love to get into some program to help pay for college online classes, but it makes me nervous just thinking about it.
      • I hope to finish three paintings, so we can finally have something on the wall above the couch. How many weeks have I been saying that?? The pool is just so much more fun...
      • My neighbor was quite rude to me yesterday...
      • I got up at 5:30 yesterday! Can you believe it?? My shoulder was still killing me and it felt like something was biting the back of my leg, but when I went to look, there was nothing there. So, I just got up. Sabrina was not thrilled about that, she stayed in bed until I told her I was going outside. Then, she got up and went. When we got outside, she didn't want to go potty because the grass was wet with dew. Haha. 
      • Happy 236th Birthday to the Army.
      • The Army announced that the patrol cap will replace the black wool beret as the default headgear for the Army combat uniform. Finally! I know J and the rest of his unit hate wearing that hot beret all the time and having to carry around the beret and the cap. The Army also is making the Velcro optional. Soldiers can choose to sew on their name tapes, rank and service tapes instead of using the Velcro. 
      • I'm all for the no Velcro. Do you know how many pairs of my underwear have been ruined by the Velcro on J's ACUs? It's ridiculous. I quickly learned that I can't wash the ACUs with anything else. 
      • My next door neighbor's cleaning lady sounds like she's tearing the apartment up. 
      • Mama came to hang out with us last Thursday. It was a lot of fun having her here. She watched me fold clothes, helped me fix dinner and then we swam. J came home early and went swimming with us and then we ate dinner. I made a pork roast with carrots, potatoes and onions. It was pretty yummy. =)
      •  Did I mention that I won Chantal's giveaway! Yes I did!! I'll be reading a new book soon!
      • I finally finished cleaning out the spare bedroom Sunday. It looks a lot better, but now all the camping stuff is laying in the hallway, waiting on J to take it to storage. 
      • My friend Janel is on first shift this week, which means she doesn't get home until after 4 and then I don't see her because her husband is at home. Boo! I like second shift much better so she has time to go to the pool with me. lol. I'm selfish that way.
      • I seriously need to find the library here.
      • Hahahahaha, the cleaning lady just sucked something up and the vacuum cleaner was making a horrible buzzing noise.
      • This conversation just took place on FB:
      •  It rained over the weekend, thank God. It was great. I was home alone and cleaning out the spare bedroom and it just started pouring. I was like, what is that??
      • It also rained Friday while J and I were out eating at this great restaurant-- Mexico Lindo Grill. The food was awesome, the atmosphere was awesome, they didn't cost too much and their staff was very attentive. We'll def. be going back there soon. 
      • J is going to be home for lunch soon and I still haven't eaten breakfast. 
      • This conversation took place the other day:
      •  I had to call and cancel the movie channels yesterday. :( I'm really bummed, because the new seasons of Weeds and Dexter are coming soon. And it's $12.99 a month for just the Showtime channels. UGH!

        Alrighty, that's enough random for today. I'm starving. I will be back tomorrow for Wordless Wednesday and probably to tell you about our date night. I noticed last night that I'm up to 48 minions fans! Don't forget that when I reach 50, I'm doing a giveaway!! {Bet you thought I'd forgotten!} So tell your friends, family and coworkers. Just kidding... but seriously, if you're following me over from RTT, be sure to follow my blog so I can do this giveaway already. GOSH.

      Six Word Saturday

      Dreamt about someone
      I don't like.
      (What are my dreams trying to tell me?
      To get in contact with someone I don't even like,
      that I haven't spoken to in almost 4 years??)
        Normally I love Saturdays, but not today.
      I didn't wake up until 10 because I tossed and 
      turned all night with my right shoulder. It's been bothering me 
      for over a week now. 
      What really stinks about it being my right shoulder, is the fact
      that I sleep mostly on my right side. And even if I start out on
      my left side, I flip to my right while I'm sleeping. *sigh*.
      It's going to be a long day.
      J wants me to clean out the spare bedroom while
      he's at drill this weekend, but I don't think it's
      going to get done at this rate. 
      I'm currently watching Babar and chillin'
      on the couch with Sabrina. 
      Nope, it's not going to get done.

      Go visit Cate; she's been productive.
      Link up with your six words.
      Do it! It's lots of fun!

      Mil-Spouse Friday Fill-In

       These are some really interesting questions this Friday. Are you a Mil-Spouse? Then you should definitely check out Wifey's blog, Wife of a Sailor and join in every friday!

      1. When you vacation what type of vacation do you like to take (beach, historic, adventurous, food oriented, etc.)? submitted by Megan Dub-Yuh 
      I love the mountains. But I also love unplanned road trips. Those are the ones that I remember the most when I was little.

      2. What is your best memory associated with a song (you know we all have tons!) submitted by Ramblings of a Marine Wife
      Oh wow. I do have so many; it's hard to think of just one. "When I Get Where I'm Going" by Brad Paisley reminds me of my Daddy. I love that song.
      3. If you had six months with no obligations or financial constraints, what would you do with your time? submitted by Married to the Army
      I'd go on a road trip! I'd visit all the places all over the world, that I've always wanted to see. 
      4. What is one thing about you that people do NOT typically notice at first that you wish they would? submitted by Our Motto is Patience
      Umm... I can't think of anything. 

      5. submitted by The Three TurnersIt's a summer of sequels, and if you had to live in one of each of the following "worlds" (there are three total) which would you choose and why? 
      --X-Men: Be a Mutant, what would your power be? Well, I'd definitely be a mutant. I wouldn't want a power that could hurt people. I think Mystique is cool. She can look like whatever she wants.
      --Harry Potter: Be a Witch or Muggle? Harry Potter! I'd totally be a witch! I actually had a dream about a Harry Potter-esque world last night. LOL. J and I love us some Harry Potter. We will definitely be in the theatre when the last half of The Deathly Hallows comes out!

      --Twilight: Be a Vampire or Werewolf? I'd be a werewolf. I couldn't stand the thought of killing someone to drink their blood. Ewww!

      RTT: I love the smell of suntan lotion in the morning...

       It's all coconut-y and sweet-smelling. It reminds me of beach trips with my family when I was little. {I still hate summer... it's too hot!}

      It's Tuesday, let's be random...
       Keely is still on her hiatus, for the eleventh week in a row. I wish I had her job. 
      Stacy at Stacy Uncorked is keeping the RTT spirit alive {with wine!}, check out her blog and link up or you can link up here. :)

      • J and I have been spending a lot of time at the pool gettin' our tan on. I have a pretty good one going on, on my shoulders and back. Hopefully I'll get it evened out. I have a farmer's tan on my right arm. Looks ridiculous.
      • It's HAWT outside. I melt as soon as I walk outside and my skin feels like the desert.
      • Talladega is under a state of emergency. They have no water pressure. J told me that yesterday, so I don't really know what's going on.
      • The Army finally paid us. Just when we though we were going to have to sell off some organs to pay the bills.
      • We saw X-Men First Class Sunday night; it was awesome! Now we finally know why Professor Xavier is in a wheelchair.
      • I'm still reading My Booky Wook. It's taking me forever. I don't know why. I guess I'm just not in a reading mood lately.
      • J and I spent the weekend at Mama's house. He worked on the lawn mower, weed-eated and cleaned up the shop. Saturday we took all the junk from the shop to the dump. 
      • Not sayin' I went through the dump bins or anything, but I found a brand-new pack of styrofoam balls! {They were just laying there!}
      • J leaves for WLC in two weeks. He'll be gone for almost half a month. He's going to miss our 3rd anniversary on June 29th. :( I'm really going to miss him. But 2 1/2 weeks is nothing compared to a year. 
      • Sabrina is lazy...but I'm sure y'all know that by now.
      • I feel bad about not blogging as much lately. But we did just get back the laptop last week. I'm going to get back in the swing of things soon.
      • Kirkland's was having a sale for Memorial Day weekend; we bought this. I love it! I can't wait to hang it above the couch. 
      • Gas is finally below $3.50 a gallon.
      • My brother finally came over to the apartment to hang out with us. I made breakfast for dinner. 
      • Went to renew my tag last Tuesday. It was $90.17! Good grief. It was the first time I had ever bought a tag in another county. 
      • My shoulder is killing me. 
      • I wish I could be in the pool right now. 
      • We've decided to move our "date night" to Tuesdays since it's cheaper to watch a movie on Tuesdays. 
      • Gotta go to the bank, so I'm wrapping up the random here. 
       Hope y'all are having a great week so far. Go forth and be random!
