The Boys Are Coming To Town

I just had to rant for a moment about how EXCITED I am!!!! My brother Ross, and two of our mutual friends, Chris and Alex, just bought plane tickets to come out and visit!!! YESSSSSSS!!!! I haven't had anyone fly out from home to visit since last September. So this is just AMAZING news to have 3 people coming. Plus it will be exciting for my husband that it's guys he can hang out with instead of my girlfriends. haha!

YAY!!!! So mid-July look for pictures of all of us and our adventures. :)

SPT-Something Blue

Here's a photo of me and my friend Mandella. It's been about 4 months since I have seen him and I have missed him. He'll soon be taking off to move to Alaska though.
Notice he's wearing a BLUE shirt.

Here's a picture of my hubby. He's also wearing a BLUE shirt and in the background is the beautiful American flag...red, white, and BLUE.



Just us...watching the sunset. Watching the sky change from BLUE, to a pinkish twilight.



The flags that fly at the station. I thought that this one was appropriate since I took it on Memorial Day.

Different Places

I got invited to go with my friend Donna to another city to go to the outlet malls. She had a friend from college unexpectedly pop in and was taking her shopping. They weren't really the closest friends so she needed a buffer....ME.

It was just a very awkward day. I didn't even really know how to relate. I am just in a completely different place in my life. The funny thing is....I didn't really see it until this afternoon. Growing up and maturing took place and I wasn't even aware that it was happening.

Then some of my hubby's co-workers showed up and had dinner with us. That was just really weird.(probably mostly because my husband wasn't there) They also are still in that single, crazy, wildlife phase...much like the friend-of-a-friend. I seriously felt completely out of place. I found my mind wondering off to all the things I'd rather be doing. Don't get me wrong...they are nice people but I feel like I just don't GET them. I felt like an outsider...or rather that they were all my outsiders.

Oh well, I guess I should be glad that I had this 'moment' because now I know what situations to steer clear of.

I'm sorry that this blog didn't really have a point. I just feel like I learned something new about myself today.

SPT- Something Borrowed

All week I've been sitting and pondering what I would do for this post. I even considered asking someone to borrow something I didn't need. HOW TO POST ABOUT SOMETHING BORROWED WHEN I HAVE NOT BORROWED ANYTHING??? Hmm...



It all came down to today...and I still had thought of NOTHING.



I went running, went to the gym, and went to the post office. Nothing sparked my imagination. I came home and showered up and put in a disc of one of my favorite shows, "How I Met Your Mother" and the answer to my burning question was revealed.





An episode of the show is named "Something Borrowed"....and might I add it's a great episode. So I snapped this photo with my cell phone and am watching it as I blog.

I'm anxious to see what everyone else came up with.

SPT- Something New

So this weekend my husbands Coast Guard station put on a HUGE event for the community to help with the local food bank. I was there for about 8 hours supporting them and taking photos.
While there I got to try SOMETHING NEW ...I got to sit in the pilots seat of a Black Hawk helicopter.

I also got to witness a few men repelling down the side of the lighthouse.

My husband decided to try SOMETHING NEW ....taking a BREAK for once. He's such a workoholic and was finally ordered to go grab a bite to eat and some water.

After all those hours in the sun we each could show off our NEW burns....or in Joe's case, his new tan. He's blessed with dark skin that tans quickly.

It was a great day and we can't wait to see what NEW adventures await us.

In Keeping With the "Something Old" Theme




My hubby and I met in high school theatre in 2000. We were engaged in 2001 (before our senior year of high school). At the end of senior year all the thespian seniors are allowed to paint their names on the wall anywhere backstage. This is a photo of ours.

I had completely forgotten about it until my nephew sent me a text saying he was walking around backstage and wondered where our names were. So I gave him instructions on where to find it.

He snapped this photo and text it to me.

Awwww...the good ol' days. 9 years later and going strong.

SPT- Something Old

Over the weekend my husband and I went out and visited something old In fact...over 200 years old.






We love history and we had a wonderful time in Brunswick Town. I'm sure that we'll be visiting it again sometime soon. I gotta say that we were the youngest people there...by far. It's crazy that not many people our age appreciate the historic sites that are at our fingertips. WE DO THOUGH! And it was nice to visit something that old and appreciate those who came before us.

My Husband, My Hero

The other night we were on our way to meet up with some friends at the movies to see "Wolverine". We were running a few minutes late. As we're sitting at the stoplight about 2 blocks away from the theatre we hear a collision. As we drive forward we see that right in front of the theatre 2 vehicles had just wrecked into one another, pretty bad too. They were blocking most of the entrance to the theatre. Joe went into EMT mode and is like,"Get me as close to them as you can." So I am able to maneuver the car close enough to the scene so that he can help, while still leaving space for the responding emergency vehicles.

He immediately runs over and starts to access the situation. I go in search of our friends to let them know what's going on. They just respond,"Oh Joe....always saving someone." ha!

He was able to check over each victim and when the ambulance showed up he gave them the run down. They were very thankful.

The cars were crushed up pretty bad. There were no life threatening issues, which was a blessing. The airbags did their jobs, but Joe was pretty sure one of the females had a broken nose due to the airbag. However, that's a small price to pay considering that had that airbag not been there she probably would have been much, much worse off.

After Joe was done, all of us were sitting in the theatre talking and his friend started saying how thankful they all are for his training when they go out on SAR (search and rescue) calls. He said that Joe is great at handling those kind of situations and remaining calm. I knew this already, but it was awesome to hear that from a fellow Coastie. That just proves to me that Joe's really following his calling by being in the Coast Guard. I'm so proud of him and just had to share that story.
