Most of the time I would tell I people that I lead a VERY boring life. But this weekend has been a little eventful so I thought I might share.
It started on Friday. I attended my 11 year old cousin's birthday party. Not only was there a lot of family in attendance, but there was also 4 other 11 year old girls, two 4 year olds, and three boys under the age of six, along with my niece who is about 2. Can I just say that the noise level was DEAFENING. Kids screaming, boys running thru the house, adults talking, girls talking a million miles a minute. Craziness. After most of the family left, I got to hang out with my (J's) Auntie and drink some wine, eat some cake, and relax after a crazy day. And then the dance party started. Five 11 year old girls, an iHome with a "dance mix", and a multicolored rotating disco ball. I have never laughed harder in my life. These girls were having such fun singing loudly to all the music, getting their groove on, and having a ball. The whole time they are dancing, I find myself thinking, "wow, I wish I had that kind of confidence when I was 11." That was definitely one of my highlights of the weekend.
Saturday was a combination Birthday/Coming Home Party. There were parts that were very fun and parts that made me miss J even more. Most of our friends are coupled up, and the boys are all like besties so everyone was asking about J. I had a lot of fun talking about what is new with J and what is going on next, but they were all under the impression that J was coming home for a few weeks after basic. Sadly not so. It was great being around all those people and having a good time, but it reminded me of all the times J and I have gone over there. It was easy to just think that J was outside with the boys making a HUGE fire while I was inside with the girls. Ahhh...soon enough I suppose.
I already blogged about talking to J, but it was so amazing I have to say it again. He pretty much rocks. He's pretty much my hero. And a pretty hot hero at that. In a few days, he will be my sailor. What what!!! Funny little side note: While talking to J he was talking about something and all of a sudden started talking in acronyms. And I had to interrupt him and go, WHAT!? Aww....My hubs really is a military man now! =) In love!
Today (Sunday) I got a wild hair and decided that I was going to pierce second holes in my ears. I've been thinking about it for awhile, but finally decided to just go for it. I am that way a little bit. I think of something and set my mind to it and go for it. Especially with piercings. They can be removed. =) After my little outing, I laid out for a bit. And burned YET AGAIN. Third week in a row. I swear I am wearing sunscreen people! After laying out, I ate dinner with my in-laws and we hung out in the living room watching tv and reading. And all of a sudden the whole room starts smelling AWFUL. This happened quite a few times. My lovely Labrador is gassy. Apparently he got into his food container and ate his fill. And apparently eating extra "meals" makes him gassy. And guess who gets to sleep with him? Yeah, me. Awesome. And do you want to know the worst part? I just heard him fart. Great. Ugh.
Gonna go get the gas mask now! Everyone pray that I don't suffocate from the fumes in my sleep!!! =)
Love and God Bless!!
