It’s hard to believe it’s already Friday again. This week the Captain has been dealing with a nasty flu bug, and watching him tough it out through 13 hour work days just makes me love him even more. Wednesday morning was priceless; he woke up and was barely able to open his eyes or speak because he was so stuffy and achy, and I said, “Babe, why don’t you just take a sick day?”. His response? “The Army doesn’t get sick days babe.” Right. Just another reason I respect the Hell out of what he does for not only me, but our country as well.
He seemed a little more chipper last night, though, and I’m hoping this bug has run its course and skipped me completely so that we can have a fun weekend. Tomorrow we’re headed to a BBQ with all of the Captains and their wives (my first time actually meeting any of them- I have to admit I’m pretty nervous), and if the weather holds out we’re going to try for a hike on Sunday to get this late Spring season started off right.
In the meantime, here are some fun links to keep you busy on this fantastic Friday:
I’ll be making this for the BBQ tomorrow- hope it’s a hit!
One of my favorite bloggers launched this new online mag and I’m obsessed.
I signed up for a quilting class that starts next week- can’t wait until I’m good enough to make this.
Next week I’ll start volunteering for the Tacoma Public Schools as a Grant Writer- this made me laugh.
If I went back to school, it would be here.
Can’t wait to DIY one of these with the Captain.
Really excited to hear about a high school peer- and fellow army wife’s- affiliation with this awesome organization.
Picked up one of these this week and pretty much plan on making it my summer uniform.
The Captain and I are combining Facebook accounts… and it all started with this article.
Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
