Green





Camp Ashland is right by the river...it was pretty


My shoes....I think DH inadvertantly took this photo. I ended up with pearl colored shoes, that reminded me of Laura Bush


Last night we had DH had his annual Officers convention.

The night certainly did not go off without a hitch. First a bow tie emergency. My husband came out of his bedroom, with his bow tie untied. Ughhh....For the record I have no idea how to tie a bow tie, at least not one I can guarantee will stay tied all night. He said he did not want to look like Colonel Sanders all night. (I had made him purchase the tie while in DC this past fall) So I had him purchase yet another one, from Men's Warehouse on the way out of town.

I was pleased with my new dress, although i will say I need to get my arms back in shape. I was also having a weird hair night because it was raining and terribly humid. (For the record I have naturally CURLY hair, and spent about 30 minutes, with my fat curling iron putting big loose curls in it....

stupid hair.

Ummmmmmm....It was nice dining with DH, and spending some alone time with him, the chance are rare, and we do appreciate the time alone immensely.


My sister and her Husband came for the weekend to hang out, and watch the kids. and the funniest thing happened this morning before church....

My Sister and I arrived in the living room, looking identical this morning. We both had white shirts on under sea foam green sweaters, brown handbags and brown shoes....It was weird. I went and put a plum sweater on so we would not look like idiots while out shopping, and at church. It was hilarious.

I did manage to find a Spring coverlet for our bed. It is cotton and a lovely shade of green. I noted a lot of the coverlets were dry clean only, which seemed odd to me.

I also managed to get some more dead sea salt body scrub, and body butter...it is summer, and my skin looks dreadful.

I hope you had a wonderful weekend.

Loved reading Romans 12 this morning....

Peter said...

Was that the Platte River, which was a creek when we went through that time, or the Missouri?

Dunno why I care except that I've read so much of each.

Army Wife said...

This is the Platte, which is a tributary of Missouri!
