Today Needed a Funny

Bye-Bye to BCGs

Sadly, one of the most attractive parts of the Navy uniform is on its way out… Remember those goofy looking glasses your dearly beloved sported through Basic Training?

Jeers… to the remainder of the NFL season.  Who […]

Why is Downton Abbey Awesome?

Are you people watching this?  WATCH IT!  Sister-in-Law kept talking it up over Christmas break, but I was still on the fence, until I sat down to watch the first episode over the weekend. Seven hours, one human bathroom break, one puppy bathroom break, half a bag of Hint of Lime Tostidos, and many gasps […]

Hawaii Travel Guide: Diamond Head State Monument

NavyGuy and I took our Hawaiian Honeymoon/Anniversary Trip last May, and I was doing well recapping the vacation for a while.  Then I fell off the wagon, and it’s time to finish those recaps before I completely forget the week in the sun.  Here are the previous entries: Traveling to Hawaii Arrival Day 1 Polynesian […]
