small town. small life.

Life as I know it is.. well.. at best not exciting. I love my life and wouldn't change it for anything.. but, our lives are just mellow. We don't have a lot going on. As a matter of fact.. I am dying for a vacation. I need the beach, warmth, something other than this tiny town that has been sooo cold lately. Lucky for us we live two hours from the beach and I am already planning two trips. One is beach camping in Destin and the other is a trip to Orlando.. I will go alone if I have to. For now an update from a girl living in a teeny, tiny, southern town without a pressing schedule:
  • I made banana bread. We ate two loaves and the other two went to neighbors/friends.

  • I am learning to quilt. This quilt.. if I ever finish it will be going to the blanket drive.

  • I just finished The Hunger Games and I am now dying to read the 2nd and 3rd books.
  • I watched Pride and Prejudice with two friends a couple of nights ago. We were prepping for our reading of Zombies.. the book we are reading this month in our book club.
  • Last weekend we had dinner at a nice seafood restaurant for our friends birthday. I threw it all up.
  • We also had a fun super bowl party at some of Sam's buddies' house. They made BBQ pulled pork, we had all sorts of dips, chips, treats and it was a good time. Although, I must say the super bowl was not that entertaining this year. The game was great but the commercials and half time show were not impressive. Guess the economy's gotten s all down.
  • Our little one is now just over two inches long.. oh and when I was at friends house.. her golden retriever sprinted toward me and jumped right on my prego belly.. I had little mini cramps and was totally stressed out. I said like three prayers and everything is fine now :)
  • Yesterday, I started season three of Army Wives with a fellow Army Wife, Kelly! We watched four episodes. We had an array of treats. Quite embarrassing really. Rice krispy treats, muddy buddys, chocolate cupcakes, butterfingers, fruit snacks, M&Ms, chips ahoy... and more. It was bad, but so good.

  5. your army wives feast reminded me of our "fat nights" in the KH when we'd get dairy queen and make tons of food!

    sam's army training sounds so intense i can't even get over it.

    i am so happy you have a little fetus in there! i'm curious where it's all going to fit; you're so tiny!
