News and a Weekend Update

I've been such a crummy blogger lately! In my defense, I have been out and about a lot in the past week.

I also have some big news. Sean is now in Germany and should be home within a week. They are doing an MRI in the next day or two and from there will decide if he needs a spinal injection or surgery. Either way he'll be home for at least a month and we are thinking he won't be sent back to Afghanistan. Although I am happy he's coming home, this is not the way I wanted it to happen. I know he's upset that he won't be finishing out the deployment with his friends and I can't blame him. It's a tough situation.

This weekend I had the pleasure to go to Nove with Dana, her little boy and a neighbor of hers. I got a couple of sweet deals.

This awesome platter that I'm sure I'll use for dips and chips.


These bowls kind of remind me of Fiestaware, which I love and so I snatched them up...for 2 euro apiece!

The best picture from Nove is this random plate we found in one of the shops. It seriously looks like a crazy version of Jesus. Ha!

Last night I went to a local cherry festival. The proper name for it is Festa dea Siaresa, but I prefer to just say Cherry Festival.

It was great, this is the first time I'd really been to an Italian festival and once we figured out where to buy tickets for our foods and drink we were golden. They were selling a kilogram of cherries for 5 Euro and it was well worth it. The cherries are AMAZING. So sweet and tasty.

Best cherries EVER!

Its a bittersweet reunion. When my husband was shot and sent back home, I never in a million years would have thought that was how our reunion would be.

I hope nothing but the best for y'all, you will be in my prayers.

LOVE the blue bowls, those are gorgeous!

I'm glad he's back, but I'm sorry this is why. I also wish you two nothing but the best in the future. Praying for y'all!

First off, please tell me you bought that plate!

I'm happy that are going to be able to see your husband soon, but I understand what you mean about the circumstances. I hope they are able to give you a proper diagnosis soon!

I would totally use a platter like that! I just seem to love plates printed with olives.

I'm glad he's safely in Germany and home soon. Hope he heals quickly!! Thinking of you both!

I hate that this is the reason he's coming home now, but glad that he's coming home to you. My thoughts are with you!!

Tasha said...

I'm so sorry you and your husband are having to go through all of that. On a lighter note, I LOVE that platter! :-)

Apparently i'm far behind, what happened!? I hope you both the best!

Those cherries looks so good right now.

Well, at least SOMETHING is happening instead just waiting waiting waiting. Forgive me for being a teeeeensy bit jealous, because I know that neither of you wanted the deployment to end this way. But you get to have him home!! That's great.

I love Nove. You never know what kind of crazy crap you will find there. And I have got to get some cherries. Doggone it, I just now remembered it's market day in my town and I probably could have gotten some this morning.

The turquoise bowls are fabulous!! I'm happy to hear your hubby will be making his way back to you soon, but sad to know it's under such circumstances.

I love those bowls! They do look a lot like Fiestaware. I'm sorry to hear about Sean's injury but that's great that he's safe.
