Good vibes.

Happy Monday friends!

It's been 7 (busy) days since I last blogged.  Every time I sat down to write anything I got sidetracked with e-mails and the fifty million other things going on.  So fifty million MAY be an exaggeration, but not by much.

Since the majority of what is going on is spouse club related, I will just do a year wrap up post after Wednesday (the last event of the 2014-2015 club year, that I am in charge of with the help of some awesome ladies (Rachel! Darlene! Debbie! Joanie! Jan!))!

This weekend though?

This weekend rocked.

On Friday, Nick and Abby dropped their dogs off at our house.  They are having one big giant sleepover at our house for a week.  Piston?  He loves it.  Dude is obsessed with Ainsley!  But having three dogs in the house has been an ADVENTURE.  These three are perfectionists at always being under foot, always having their nose up each others butts (Piston... I'm looking at you.) and always taking up the most space possible.  I'm not even kidding.. we finally got around to watching Fifty Shades of Grey tonight and on our three person couch was Rob, me in the middle and Ainsley on the other side.  Dakota (a German Shepard mind you...) wanted on the couch too.. so she came up and put the front half of her body on Rob and her butt on me... it's cool Dakota, you make that space for yourself.


So other than the dogs giving us a run for our money... Saturday morning we picked up my Mother's Day present.  A gently used Dyson vacuum cleaner.  I. Am. In. Love.  I mean I've talked about my vacuuming addiction on here before.  It's the real deal y'all.  It's so quiet, and it cleans so well, and it is so light weight, and I can clean the whole house without it shutting off... and, and, and.  Ha ha ha.  My husband just rocks.


We spent the rest of Saturday going to the giant county yard sale at the fairgrounds.  For the most part it was fairly picked over by the time we got there and we ended up walking out empty handed, but it was a good  walking adventure none the less.

That afternoon we met up with Rachel, her sister Haley and baby Lilianna at Thunder Over Augusta.  This free event was a celebration of Armed Forces Day put on by one of the amazing business owners in Augusta (he owns a local jewelry store and the space that was used for the CSRA Signature Military Spouse Appreciation Event (free of charge mind you!) that I went to a couple of weeks ago - he donates heavily to the military).  There were booths, food, presentations, the works.  We watched them skydive the flags in and listened to the Signal Band a bit before splitting.  It was hot!  On the way back to the car Grace and I walked through a chinook - an Army helicopter.  Which was a first for me and pretty cool in an "I can now relate to my husband, sort of" sort of way!


By the way, Happy (belated) Armed Forces Day to all of our country's amazing service members.  To say you rock is an understatement.

Yesterday was spent grocery shopping, firing up the Big Green Egg and watching Fifty Shades.  I don't feel like I missed much with that movie.  But we are excited for American Sniper to come out on DVD.  Hashtag parent problems. Always watching DVDs late.

Anyway busy week in our house - between this event Wednesday and my parents coming into town for Memorial Day (!!!) - we can't stop, won't stop.

So happy fresh week y'all.




Also - THANK YOU to all those that linked up with Jen and I on Military Spouse Appreciation Day!  I hope some of you found some great new blogs to read!! I know I did!


always,
