Do it again, I dare you.

Klutch [the dog] just barked.
I responded with "do it again, I dare you"...
His response?
A soft bark.

I feel like I have kids already.
And that my friends, is my life.

It seems like life is just repeating "story of my life" over and over again right now.
But I'm not complaining.
I thrive on routine.

With that being said, it hasn't all been repetitive.

Like my husband got promoted yesterday.  A quick ceremony that had me laughing, bursting with pride, welling up with tears and happy all at the same time.  I don't think there is a better feeling than your husband's superiors saying how bright his future military career is.  He is a smart one that husband of mine!

Like one of the hardest, if not the hardest, session of school being OVER.  That's right folks.. another session down.  Leaving two to go.  The end is in sight!

Like getting a billion and one things accomplished on Spring Break... because hello it is a break from school. In the spring.  Time to add some black cross offs to that to-do list.

Like joining bloglovin'.  What?!  Yeah.. I did it.  [[It's all Jane's fault because I can't read her blog on blogger, so I had to find another way to get some Poppiness action!]]  So if you are on there... add me!!

Like deciding to take over a board position for the Fort Gordon Spouse's and Civilian Club.  I never imagined I'd be that wife.  But I am.  I like being involved on Fort Gordon.  It's afforded me some priceless connections.  And since my husband plans on doing this military thing for awhile... why pass up the opportunity for some great connections?

Like since launching my Facebook page for my personal design business less than a week ago.. I've had two new projects added to my plate.  That's a good sign folks!!  Have you liked Amanda Dawn Designs on Facebook yet?  Every like is much appreciated!

Like planning a new link-up with Janna!  Join us on Tuesday May 7th for the first installment of "A Few of My Favorites..."!  Each month we will select one co-host to choose a topic that falls under that category.  On the first Tuesday of every month the link-up topic will go live for the following month!  This month's topic is: favorite childhood book(s) [or your kids!] with co-host Bekha!  I can't wait to read what everyone has to say!
Somewhere Over the Camo

And that's a wrap y'all.. I've got an overdue library book halfway finished calling my name pretty loudly.  Happy mid-week!!!
