This weekend has been great. I've been so excited to have Sean back and he's been cooking up a storm! To be honest I haven't really cooked for myself since he's been gone. I've mostly been existing on cereal, microwave meals and sandwiches...yeah, not the best meal plan. Anyway, yesterday Sean made us burgers complete with mushrooms and cheese on mine, home-made macaroni and cheese with cream cheese, Velveeta and green chilies. Last but not least we had fried potatoes with onions and peppers in them. Simply scrumptious! I'll be the first one to say that I got lucky marrying a man who can cook...AND cook well.
Other than that we've just been watching some baseball (mainly Cubs) and finally watching Entourage Season 4. We ordered it about a month ago and it came in while Sean was gone. Like the good wife that I am, I refrained from watching it until he got home.
My online shopping sprees have not gone unnoticed though. Sean went through our USAA homepage and the first words out of his mouth? "What all did you buy at Forever21, Amazon, Old Navy and Target?" Oops! I did tell him though that I got him a present from Amazon, I'm not sure that took the heat off me though.
It appears that the short months we have left together before the deployment may be cut down by another month. Sean has gone unpromoted for the last year and it's more than high-time that he should be promoted. His 1st Sergeant noticed this as well and and wants to send Sean to WLC so that he can get his next rank. That means he'll be away for an entire month for that. I'm hoping he can do that in June, as my mom and brother will be here for two weeks during that time and so it wouldn't be quite as lonely. If he does it in July then we'll miss out on block leave and our trip to Ireland will have to be put on the back-burner, which we really don't want to happen.
Well, I hope you ladies all had a fab weekend! What did you end up doing?
