I'm having some problems with Blogger today. I'm not sure if it's just my computer or actually Blogger. In case you didn't notice I'm playing around with some new layouts and I actually changed to a three column template so I could unclutter the blog a bit. I'm sure it'll change a few times before I settle on something I really like.
Tonight Sean will be staying out in the field, since they are doing some land navigation and it appears he won't be back until sometime Thursday. So I'm designating tonight as ladies night, even though it just involves one lady, me.
On the agenda? Going by the PX to pick up Sex and the City, which I am so excited about! I missed seeing it in the theater and I cannot wait to sit down and enjoy it. I'm also going to pick up a birthday card for one of my best friend's little boy. He'll be turning one this weekend and I need to get a card for a fellow Army wife who's husband is deployed. She's not living on-post and I know she gets pretty lonely so I think I'm going to try to send her a little card or something in the mail each week just so she'll have a little cheer.
I was so excited when I got home yesterday because I got my favorite magazine in the mail. My mom got me a subscription to Arthur Frommer's Budget Travel for my birthday this year and it is the BEST travel magazine. I highly recommend it! This month they even had an article on 25 Things They Love About New Orleans, which gave me some good places to check out if I ever make it back there before we leave.
I saw the neatest idea on Flickr yesterday. A woman is doing 365 days in photos. She takes pictures of things in her world (mostly her son) and gives each picture a day. I'm really thinking of doing this. One picture a day wouldn't be too difficult and it would be neat to look back on your year in pictures.
I've stumbled upon a lot of great blogs lately and I wanted to take a moment to recommend them to my readers.
1. Make Mine a Mojito- Mrs. Mojito seriously could be a model (just look at her) but she is such a great writer and writes some hilarious posts.
2. Misadventures of a Newlywed- She's hilarious and has a great sense of style. If she lived closer I'd so try to be her friend in real life. I can only imagine how much funnier she is in person.
3. Glamourous Life of a Housewife- Again, a very good writer, hilarious posts and the descriptions of her cooking and decorating abilities make me very jealous!
Oh and for all your military gals out there if you have a recipe that you'd like to contribute please email it to us at email@example.com or email me personally to be added as a contributor to MRE's: Not for Me!
And other sidenote, as soon as I get my house decorated in a decent manner for fall I will certainly share pictures!
Well, I need to go get some lunch. Something healthy you ask? Nope! I'm thinking Arby's.
