I've really enjoyed my time spent here in Louisiana. I've seen many interesting things and tried some amazing food. Etouffee anyone? The only thing I've felt that was lacking in my Louisiana experience was some great friends.
I've never been one that's had trouble making friends. Sure, I can be shy sometimes, but still...I've never had a period of my life where I haven't found at least one friend. That is, not until I moved to Louisiana.
Although I really enjoyed my time in Houston with Sara and Lindsay, it made me sad in a way that I didn't have friends like them or like my friends back home in Oklahoma. If I can find friends that I mesh well with in a blogging setting, why can't it be that easy here?
Maybe it's because I don't have children and don't know many women here close to my age that don't. Maybe it's because I'm not really part of any groups here.
Don't get me wrong, there are a few girls here that I'm friendly with around here, but none that I'd call up and say, "Hey..want to hang out and do this?"
I'm really hoping and praying that when we get to Italy that I find at least one friend that I really click with.
So...thank you to all my blogging friends that come to my site to comment or just to read and thank you to my real-life friends that read this as well.
Also thank you to all the ladies that left comments yesterday. It made my day to read all of them and how supportive you guys were towards my husband and all military.
Now on to other things...like my lovely argyle sweater. Can I just say how much I love wearing it? I think it's my favorite sweater ever!
I tried this nail polish on Sunday while we were at Ulta and I'm regretting not buying it. I normally don't like dark colors on my fingernails, but I'll make an exception for this.
Look at this Christmas bag that I bought last year at Hobby Lobby when they were all on sale.
I was going through these the other day since I'm taking them to my parent's house to use for presents. I got so many cute bags from there last year. Maybe I'll still have time to stock up on after Christmas sales at Hobby Lobby and store that stuff at my parent's home for next year. Hmm.....
Ok...I have a PCSing question for you military gals out there. As you know, we have a Min-Pin that we are taking with us. Sean is insistent he be checked as baggage, I want him to ride in the cabin with us. We are flying AA to Baltimore and from there to Italy it's a military flight. Will they allow us to carry him on in the cabin on a military flight? If not, then I might as well go ahead and check him from the very beginning. Any advice or answers on that?
Last night was such fun for Sean and I. We went to go eat for lunch. He chose Ryan's Steakhouse (not my favorite by any stretch of the imagination) but I happily obliged since it was "his" day. Then we did a little shopping at the PX/Commissary. New Glamour for me! We got a few movies and some popcorn at Blockbuster and then went back home for some movie watching/cuddling in front of the TV. Of course Boomer had to join in....and in the middle at that. We rented Get Smart and I was suprised by how good it was! Very funny too. I haven't laughed that much at a movie in quite awhile. The second movie was The Business. Yawn. Weird sort of British characters. Not good at all. Sometime in between the two movies Sean manged to make pre-made Pillsbury cookies into rocks. Not even joking about that. I seriously thought I was going to break a tooth.
Hope you have a wonderful Wednesday!
