Starbucks Shenanigans

I warned you that the blogging would be light while we’re home in Wisconsin… and I’m nothing if not good on my word. Today is our last full day in the cheese state, so hopefully this week, things will be back to normal around here, with lots of my postings and rantings. To finish up […]

Getting there is half the battle…

Our journey to Wisconsin this past weekend was one long list of debacles. I’ll say that in the end, everything worked out fine, but along the way… ~ I didn’t have a seat when we tried to check in for our red-eye flight, so we had to wait for the gate agent to assign me […]

Inbound Hot!

And we’re off! Wisconsin here we come. 10 days of running around like fools trying to see anyone and everyone that we love.

Even the stupid customers can teach you something…

Did you know why people sometimes drink their hot coffee drinks with a straw? To keep the coffee from staining their teeth! I know! I always thought they were dumb-asses who were just out to burn the back of their mouth instead of the front. I mean, how ridonkulous does it look to stick a […]

Guest Bathroom After…

You can refresh your memory of the before photos here, and then check out the new and improved version below! First up is the new shower curtain (the axis around which the rest of the bathroom revolves). I opted for a clearance Kohls number in pear green. According to HGTV, you should always leave your […]

Deployment Prep: Learn How to Change a Tire

NavyGuy will be deploying in March. Tonight, we have an extensive pre-deployment meeting with the entire squadron (officers, enlisted sailors, spouses, families), where we’ll get tons of information. I expect it to be long, informative, overwhelming, half-boring, half-terrifying. As part of his job working in the administration department of the squadron, NavyGuy has been in […]

Oscar Watch

NavyGuy and I typically aim to see all of the Best Picture nominees before the Academy Awards. Even as movie freaks fans, we consider this a challenging task. And the now the bar has been raised, because instead of five movies, there’s 10 Best Picture nominees to see!! Here’s where we are so far – […]
