Hooray for The Whiskey Boys

Yet another fantastic beer night at Union Street Tavern with live music (second week in a row!) from The Whiskey Boys!

What a delightful time. So good I even stayed up about four hours past my bed time! Again!

Saturday we were so tired but we laughed more than we have in ages. :) Another good evening around our firepit and then sunday at the firing range. After a little refresher course I didn't do half bad :)

He's home he's home he's home!!

Joe is back from his three week drill in VA. He's got a couple more days to go but at least those he gets to do from home. :) My girlie plans would make it so that I wouldn't get to spend time with him this weekend anyway but it's so good to get to see him in the wee hours.


I haven't seen Jake so excited or happy in quite awhile.

Yay for friends!

Hooray for getting some good one on one time with two of my favorite people!

A movie this afternoon and a girlie date for beerz :)

I don't think it's been so hard to drag myself away from beerz in a while. Granted we don't usually start at 6:30 when there are boys involved :)

ooo! Shiny! - first firefly of the year

Last night I saw a firefly in the back yard for the first time!

Then Jake almost sat on it.

random things that make me happy - highlights from away

I just got back from a fantastic few days in New Hampshire.

I cannot remember being so happy or giggly (or stress free) in quite some time.

Some of the highlights:

LONG walks through the army corps land behind my grandparents where there were several bullfrog choruses, skinny-wading (wasn't quite warm enough for real swimming)

Making Jack-a-l'oranges :D (jack-a-lanterns out of oranges and filling them with fruit salad)

Making jello with the leftover fruit and putting in leftover colored tapioca balls :D Wiggly food with floaty spungy balls and fruit in it is fun. :D

Found a pair of fun sneakers (finally found converse I love on me) and then when we got home Jake decided to hang out in the trunk while I was unloading the rest of the car. :)

I know there are lots of happy thoughts I've forgotten but they will have to wait until another day :)

:D Lazy day happy thoughts

I finally found a decent knife block that wasn't a hundred dollars. It's so nice to have my knives within easy access of my cutting board. (instead of in a drawer in blade guards or the original packaging)

Now I'm sitting here enjoying a glass of peach lambic with my lazy lunch. :)

What a day!
