Hot Dog

One day a year… I take one for the team… and let mom dress me up… because all the treats… make the embarrassment almost tolerable.

Happy Halloween!

Boo to you!  NavyGuy and I celebrated over the weekend at a friend’s party.  After many Goodwill trips and some creative re-purposing of a few items we already had at home, may I present… Mary Poppins and Bert!  I hate to brag, but we were a huge hit.  We actually won 1st prize in the […]

Banana Bread

Mrs. Wookie has one she uses. I’m certain HistoryGirlie has a super secret better-than-Martha one she uses. Here’s the one I use, compliments of Mom:

Boys and their Toys

NavyGuy tried to have a testosterone-fueled-farting-manly-GUY night on Tuesday: Some new video game was released Tuesday and all the squadron was a twitter with excitement.  Shooting things and making fun of each other (which is basically what they spend all day doing), but from the comfort of their couches and with beer?  How could it […]

MilSpouse Friday Fill-In #62

I haven’t done a Friday fill-in in some time.  This week’s questions/statements are very open-ended… 1. I want… … a new dining room table.  Dark wood.  Square shape, regular seating height, seats 8, and expands to 10.  So far Pottery Barn is the only place with one fitting these criteria – which means it doesn’t […]

child-watching

Babysitting is not for the faint of heart.  I can’t believe parents used to hire me to do it when I was thirteen. Last week was a babysitting marathon.  From Tuesday morning until Friday morning I was watching two boys (aged seven and three), and from Friday afternoon to Saturday night I was watching two […]

Dancing with my Dyson

I’ve been lusting after a new vacuum for quite a while.  My current vacuum is a pretty basic Hoover, and it works ok… but it doesn’t work very well on the dog hair that gets into the carpets, the hose and attachments don’t work very well on the stairs, and there’s no way to turn […]
