Wordless Wednesday on Thursday!!!!

I have no words.....

Husband was trying to help a baby cow who got caught in the barb wire fence. The cow is so sad!

I will try to keep a check on things, but I will be back in soon!!

Top of the World

Yes, it is 0016 where I am at now, and I can't sleep.

This is how I feel.... I love Mandy Moore!!

25 October 2010


We are kicking royal butt in this deployment! Today marks seven months that my husband has been deployed. R&R is soon and I will get the hug I've been longing for since this day 7 months ago. Nobody gives me better hugs than my husband!! My Donut of Misery says that we are 59% done with this deployment and only 41% more to go!! WOOOOOOHOOOOOO!!!!

Weekend recap: I had a really great weekend. Friday night, I went and played darts with my in-laws plus my SIL and BIL. We actually played in a dart tournement. It was fun, but what a long night. We got there around 1630 and didn't leave until 0100. It was crazy fun! Saturday, we walked six miles, then did a little running around and watched the Alabama and Auburn games. Sunday, we walked six miles again and then started working on a project for when husband comes home. I had to make him a sign even though it's R&R. He will probably hate me, but whatever!!

I hope everyone had a great weekend and it continues into this week! Have a blessed day!

Shopping at Kohl's/Birthday

Yesterday, we went to Kohl's to see what the sale was. I ended up getting my R&R clothes and now I just have to pick which outfit I want to wear! Here is what I got:

I got these at Shoe Carnival. Buy 1 Get 1 1/2 off. I love them!!

I'm going to wear this with black leggings and boots. Cute? I'm thinking of wearing it to pick husband up...

Or this dress with the boots? I can't pick!!
 Today is husbands birthday! HAPPY BIRTHDAY BABE!! I love you!! I picked his birthday presents up yesterday at Kohl's as well. If he doesn't like them, I got new clothes!!

 I love Kohl's and that store will be the death of me one day. They have the cutest Christmas plates, etc. with snowmen on them, but you have to buy them one by one. Too expensive for this girl, but I will be getting some Christmas plates this year. YAY!! I've been wanting them forever!

Again, I have to say...

Mostly Wordless Wednesday

I haven't done one of these in a long time. Sorry about that! On to the pictures...

From this....

To this....

I don't think you can tell in pictures, but it's actually a red color.

I LOVE IT!!! My husband wanted fire engine red highlights, but my stylist said that it would probably turn my hair orange and that's not cute. So, I did my whole head red! I've always wanted to be a red head. I may go brighter red the next time so you can really see it!

200 Days!!!

Wow, has it really been 200 days since I've last seen my husband? 200 days since I last got a hug from my husband? 200 days since I last kissed my husband? 200 days since we have slept in the same bed? 200 days since I could call him and talk to him whenever I wanted? 200 days since he played with Tank?

It really has been, and I can't believe it! Soon-ish I will get to see, hold, hug, and kiss my husband. Soon-ish my world will be right for 15 days. Soon-ish my Tank will have his daddy back to play with him. I'm pretty sure that husband is more excited about seeing Tank than he is about seeing me. Either way, I can't wait to see my husband in the flesh!!

Here are a couple of pictures of Tank that my Mama took today! My boy is representing!!

Roll Tide Roll!!!

Let's Go, Bama!!!

Have a great Saturday night and Sunday! God Bless and take care!

Quick Update

Today is such a cool day... 10/10/10. My husband said I was a dork when I told him the date. Anybody that knows him, can't you just 'hear' him saying that?!? I think it's cool, anyway!

I started a new workout. Has anybody done The Wave by The Firm? Holy crap, batman! It's crazy hard because you are working your core the entire workout, but I am loving it!! I'm trying to do a walk/run but my shin/calf has been hurting. I have some compression things to go on my legs, but it didn't help today. I have to make an appointment with the doctor anyway to get my flu shot/mist, so I will talk to her about it when I go.

I just wanted to say thanks to everyone who commented on my last post about Tank. He is definitely our baby! I think he's the most beautiful and well behaved dog ever, but I could be biased! Tank told me to tell everyone thanks for the birthday wishes as well!!

I hope everyone had a great weekend and has a great week!!! Take Care and God Bless!!

Happy Birthday Tank!!!

I know it's been a while, but I'm just not in the mood to blog. I think I have too much on my mind at the moment and it's all things that I can't/do not want to share. So... today is my precious boys birthday!! He is 5, we think. For those who don't know the story, we rescued Tank two years ago on 27 October 2008. The longest I have been away from him was this weekend when we went to Chicago. Normally, he goes everywhere with us. I can't imagine life without him.

Spoiled!! He loves his blanket!!

That's his daddy's beach towel.

This is what I deal with when I work out on the floor.

Yes, he has his own couch! This is the old blanket. It stays outside now.

Isn't he gorgeous?!?

He is always so happy! I can't wait to see him with his dad on R&R!!

He misses this man something fierce! I miss that man something fierce too!!
