Back and Better than Ever!

Sorry I have yet to blog! I obviously wasn't on the computer this weekend and once I got home yesterday I relaxed and then cleaned out the fridge in preparation for Thursday so it didn't leave me much time to get on here.

I'm still working on the pictures from New Orleans. I took over 400 while we were there and I'm still editing them in Picasa, so it's going to be probably this afternoon before any pictures are put up.

That being said I had a wonderful time with Sara in New Orleans. We saw some great sites, tried some great food and really got to experience the city. I can thankfully say that when I move that I really got to see the city of New Orleans.

Ok ok...one teaser picture before I post later.

On a different subject, I would like to thank both Sarah and Newlywed Hostess for my awesome new award. They were both kind enough to bestow it on me and I'm very grateful.

Now to pass this on.

1.Positively Preppy In Pink- She's in London currently, although getting ready to come back to the States soon and she takes the best trips. Plus I think she seems like such a sweet girl!
2. A Pretty Peony- she's fun and she's fabulous. Sounds like the perfect criteria to me!
3. What? Mermaids?- a fellow military wife, who's blog I really enjoy reading. She makes me think and she makes me laugh.
4.Lovely Yellow Ribbons- another military spouse who I recently discovered. She's got a naughty Min-Pin like mine. That alone deserves an award!
5. Honey- she makes the most gorgeous quilts and I'm quite excited to meet her once I move to Europe.

5 Things I think are fabulous:
1. Mexican Food
2. Argyle sweaters
3. Forever 21 (how did you not see this coming?)
4. New highlights in my hair
5. Eating delicious holiday food until I'm stuffed

In moving news, we found out today that Sean has to clear EVERYTHING by the 12th of December, which includes housing. Originally our check-out date was to be the 19th, but it's been moved up a week. My last day of work is the 15th, so we will be staying in the Magnolia House on-post until the 16th and then we will be heading home.

Our house is being packed up in less than two weeks.

I still have much to do before that time.

Commence freak out time in 3, 2, 1...

Tasha said...

Congrats on the blog award! I love New Orleans and want to go back soon! The Cafe Du Monde would make me a fatty McFatterson if I lived there! I would not be able to resist a daily trip for a sugary breakfast! Fried goodness covered in powdered sugar has to be the best invention in the world! :-)

Hooray for Cafe du Monde! I went there right after Rob called me to tell me he got a Purple Heart, actually! New Orleans is gorgeous isn't it? Did you take a riverboat ride?

It sounds like you had a good time :D

I missed this, because of my lack of following before now, but where are you headed to on the move?

Hope all goes well, and thanks for stopping by! And I may take you up on that someday ;]
