Random Thoughts

- I have yet to see a decent picture of someone on a military ID. How is it possible I can look decent in all other ID's, but my military ID always makes me look like 10 lbs heavier?

- my hair needs to be cut and highlighted so badly. I'm almost ashamed to walk around post

- I really want to go to Naples over Labor Day, as Outdoor Rec is sponsoring a trip, BUT I need to find someone to watch Boomer and I feel guilty leaving him for two days

- work still sucks. Yesterday I was asked if my hours could be increased and if I could start working every other weekend. No and No. The weekend thing won't work because I refuse to give up the two days that Sean and I actually have to spend with one another. With deployment quickly approaching I'm not giving up any time. So sue me.

- I've been horrible about getting out and photographing things lately. I feel like there aren't enough hours in the day

- I'm in love with strawberry wine. At a recent party, one of the wives had some she purchased from a local winery. It was the nectar of the Gods, let me assure you

-I haven't ordered anything from Forever 21 in over a month. This fact shocks me

Love the randomness! I seriously hate my military ID's but for some reason Hubby looks hotter on them than in real life! I am quite shocked at this fact, and annoyed he hasn't shared his secret!

BTW... Strawberry wine ROCKS!

I hate ID photos. In all of time I only had one good ID, and that was my community college ID. I carried it for years, until I lost it - I showed that one for student discounts at places rather than my university one, it was so much better.

Sorry about work. That stinks. You'd think they'd be more understanding.

I feel you on the photography thing. Check my blog - we spent a three day weekend with friends out of town, and I walked away with....10 pictures? REALLY???

Good for you for saying no! You shouldn't give up the precious time you have with Sean before he leaves! I'm proud of you!

My university ID is the worst pic I have ever taken. I completely agree with you about saying no, you should not have to give up any time w/ your hubby!

Strawberry wine sounds fantastic (and I love that song too)!

lola said...

Mmm. send some strawberry wine my way! :)

Also, if it makes you feel better, my military ID is awful and the lady even let me retake it once! ahh.

I like strawberry wine as well, hardly ever drink it, but I do like it. My hair looks messed up (worse than normal) in my military id, but the hassle I went through just to get it makes me not want to change it. Also having it done after I had been at work all night probably didn't help either. Sorry about your job being sucky, mine has been as well.

Has Forever 21 gone out of business? I bet they are lost without you!

My first military ID picture was REALLY good. Like best ID picture ever. Too bad I had to get a new one, and they took it right up in my face. You can see every single pore. Dumb.

And another funny ID story...I took my first DL picture right after working my shift as a lifeguard. I had a cute tube top on from American Eagle. Yeah, too bad they didn't tell me I would look naked. I had that thing for 2 years. And of course every store clerk had to comment. Why yes, I DID take my picture naked.

My current military ID picture and my current Drivers license pics are the best id pics ive ever had! I was so happy- but youre right the way they take your pic and the bleaching of the face puts some weight on!

My mil ID pic is okay....however....the lady put me down as weighing 190 lbs on the back. Nobody said I was a small chick but I ain't that damn big. She wouldnt change it either.

Crazy Shenanigans said...

Oh my gosh!! Are you going cold turkey! How could you not have ordered anything from Forever 21!!!!

I hope work gets better soon!

Sarah Ann said...

Eww yes, I hate my ID picture. I even tried to look cute because I knew it was going to tough to get a good picture and guess what? I was right and I still looked bad. Oh well.

I look like I got punched in the face in my military ID. I took my driver's license picture on the SAME DAY and it turned out great. Who knows.

If you get a chance please stop by my new blog: http://nikkilooch.blogspot.com I'm having a give-away and if you won, I'd save on shipping haha.

I just found your blog and I think we have alot in common!!!!
I thought it was funny how you mentioned your hair needing to be cut and highlighted. My husband and I believe that it must be "the army wife haircut" to need that... but we just can't afford it right now, I don't know why you haven't gotten yours cut haha :)

Also I just quit my retail job because it was cutting into the only time John and I had together before he deploys.

Thats all! :)

oh my! my milID is ATROCIOUS... seriously the worst!! glad i'm not alone though.

and laughing hysterically at your comment... i'll try my best to not make you hungry anymore.... TRY... ;)

Becca said...

I'm with you on the haircuts. I'm afraid by the time I leave here, my hair will be down to my waist because I'm scared to find a place to get it cut.

Apparently I need to try strawberry wine.

Boomer is just a little dog, right? I bet Josie, our chihuahua, would love to hang out with Boomer for a few days. We could trade dogsitting! There are trips we'd like to take too, but have the same problem with leaving Josie. We've got a little yard for them and a park just down the street for walks. Let me know if you want to give it a try.

Hannah Noel said...

Hmm I've never had strawberry wine, maybe I should try it! I need to check out Forever 21!! I'ts been so long.
