Happy Halloween!

From an adorable flower… … and a reluctant pumpkin 🙂 Outtakes: (The shirt is the right size for her length, but she’s so little that it hangs off her tiny stomach and skinny legs!) We went through a good 48 training treats in an attempt to get two semi-decent photos. Don’t be fooled – she […]

MilSpouse Friday Fill-In #19

1. What’s the nicest thing a stranger has ever done for you? I was in line at Starbucks last year (around Christmastime), and the woman ahead of me turned around and asked what I was going to have.  I thought maybe she was just making conversation, or didn’t know what to order, but when she […]

The Rocky Horror Glee Show

Can we all say it together? Ab-ulous! (Sorry.  I really wish I had a photo of Chord Overstreet in just his gold shorts to insert here, but alas this was the best I could find.) I hadn’t seen the original Rocky Horror Picture Show until about two hours before the Glee episode.  My mom was […]

The Fall Rains Have Set In…

… so these may be the last happy photos of Tally at the puppy park in 2010: Mom!  Mom!  Check out this awesome smelly plastic ball that somebody left here for me to chew on and chase around!  It’s so awesome! Mom! Mom!  Throw the ball again!  I’m just pretending to be tired and laying […]

Cooking with Vodka

Brilliance. I decided that after a week of take-out and frozen pizza, my body was actually craving a home-cooked meal.  So, I finally tried Rachael Ray’s “You-Won’t-Be-Single-For-Long-Vodka-Cream-Pasta.”  Her names for things are way too long, so from now on I’ll be calling it “Pink Vodka Pasta” or “Fancy Spaghetti.”  My notes are in italics. Pink […]

I’ve been reading blog archives (in lieu of starting my next grad school essay) and I found this from a few months back.  Ever since the MilSpouse Friday where I had to discuss my bucket list, I’ve been thinking more and more about it; this fit well. Instructions: The post is a list of 99 […]

MilSpouse Friday Fill-In #18

1. Are you a night owl or an early bird? Neither.  I like to sleep in, and go to bed early.  And possibly nap.  NavyGuy’s pretty sure I have a mild case of narcolepsy.  Or African sleeping disease.  If I had to pick one though, I’m more of an early bird in that I like […]

Cheers and Jeers: Babysitting Edition

Cheers… to moms who stock their pantries, fridges, and freezers with recognizable foods.  Like Doritos.  Or goldfish crackers.  Or at least chicken nuggets that are still in the Tyson box so I know what the heck I’m looking at. Jeers… to moms who have no good food in their house.  I almost starved to death […]
