I don't think I'll ever get caught up on all of my blog reading! I was MIA for a little over a week because Adam was home on leave and now I'm playing catch up on my blogs, on Saturday I had 231 blogs to read, I got down to just over 100 now it's back to 173... So ummm yeah, if y'all could take a day or two off that would be grand! :)

Scentsy is amazing

So I won a giveaway from Lauren @ Young but not (completely) dumb Lauren is a scentsy consultant and she sent me the super cute Boho Chic full sized warmer.  I love how neutral it is while still having it's own style.  She also sent me two scentsy bars, "Sharp Dressed Man", which really does smell like clean boy I LOVE IT! and "Mocahdoodle" (Spelling?) which has a great coffee scent that makes the house smell like a coffee shop.  As an added bonus Lauren sent me a travel tin in "Beach" I am keeping it in my car and on her advice open it when I am in the car and close it during the day when I am at work so that it will last longer.  My car smells amazing and it is great at hiding the wet dog smell that was in my backseat the other day (I had to wash the seat protector!)
All in all I say scentsy is a win and I finally understand why so many people were making such a big deal out of it!

BooHoo and HooYah

So a friend of mine posted this meme yesterday and I thought it was adorable and want to join in!  If you want more info go check out A Monkey In the Navy it's such a cute idea!  Basically it is a way to give a short vent and a short happy about your week!!

BooHoo--I miss my husband and feel bad since at this point I can't send him any letters :(
HooYah--I am running the mutt strut 5k this weekend with my great friend Sespi at And You never Did Think
to help raise money for Faith to get a service dog have you donated yet?  If not go check out Raise the Woof!

Hope everyone has a great day!

Milspouse Friday Fillin #44

 From Wife of a Sailor:

I love learning more about my fellow MilSpouse bloggers! MilSpouse Friday Fill-in is taking off even better than I could have ever hoped. I learned so much about my fellow bloggers and can’t wait to learn more… and hopefully even MORE will join in as we go.
Here’s the skinny for newcomers about MilSpouse Friday Fill-ins (and when I say MilSpouse, I mean significant others, too!):
Each week, I’ll post a list of questions on Thursday (so you can have your blog ready on Friday). Come back here on Friday and enter your blog post into Mr. Linky so others know who else participated and we can all visit other blogs.  And please feel free to use the button above!
  1. When you vacation what type of vacation do you like to take (beach, historic, adventurous, food oriented, etc.)? submitted by Megan Dub-Yuh  Adam and I both really like historic trips.  We love learning about the past and seeing where significant events took place.
  2. What is your best memory associated with a song (you know we all have tons!) submitted by Ramblings of a Marine Wife I really can't think of one right now but I know that as soon as I hear the song I will remember :)
  3. If you had six months with no obligations or financial constraints, what would you do with your time? submitted by Married to the Army Probably volunteer with animals or children.  Maybe travel for part of the time too.
  4. What is one thing about you that people do NOT typically notice at first that you wish they would? submitted by Our Motto is Patience Most people don't realize how honest and up front I am.  Probably because I am less so with new people.  My bluntness has caused some problems in the past though so I wish people would realize it exists in the begining.
  5. …. submitted by The Three TurnersIt’s a summer of sequels, and if you had to live in one of each of the following “worlds” (there are three total) which would you choose and why? 
    –X-Men: Be a Mutant, what would your power be?
    –Harry Potter: Be a Witch or Muggle?
    –Twilight: Be a Vampire or Werewolf?
    Harry Potter and witch by far.  For starters because this is the only of the options I know anything really about and second because how awesome would it be to be able to disapperate and fly on a broom!

New Blog Design

Hi everyone!  I have a new blog design up and running (surprise!) and it looks amazing!  Aly from Bridgework Blog Design created it for me and did an amazing job.  Go check her out!  

In honor of my super awesome new blog design, and the fact that I get to be super stressed in two weeks preparing for a major board meeting and trying to spend time with my husband, and trying to get him moved to Norfolk, I will be having a giveaway next week.  I don't know what I'll be giving away yet I have to go buy something! But I will get all of that figured out tonight and will be posting the details later this week so tune in for details :)
