Mike got PCS orders to Mountain Home AFB, Idaho.
I am super excited to be getting back to SNOW!!!
(insert beautiful image of snow covered mountains here, I couldn't find a single one on any of my computers or hard drives - weird huh?)
Mountain Home is about 200 miles from where Mike grew up in Firth, ID. I am glad that he will be closer to his family. He already has plans to go berry picking as soon as we get there & then hunting with his father later. He is very anxious to get there! Although it's been fun to be living so close to the beach, I will be glad to say good bye. I never hid the fact that this has definitely NOT been my favorite duty station.
Even though we are still 5 months away from moving we have been preparing for it from the minute we found out. We have sold our 90 gallon aquarium, Mike sold his table saw, & I am getting geared up for a huge moving sale next month! We also found someone that wants out GIANT TV so that we won't have to move that (and it gives Mike an excuse to buy
another one a better one for the family for Christmas)! I am also super excited about preparing for cold weather again! Weird, I know, but I LOVE to buy cold weather clothes! Living in Florida I haven't had much need for my beloved sweaters & jackets, and I haven't really had an excuse to buy any either. I have been on the look out since we got orders though! I found some great feetie jammies for MJ for $3.00 in a size 18 months. So can't wear them for a little while, but when she can I will be glad that I found them so cheaply because I remember paying at least $20 for some for Bug! I also found a pair of warm fuzzy sweats and sweat shirt for $1.00 @ WalMart yesterday! Again, they are a little big now, but they will fit her when she needs them! I also scored a great pink turtleneck sweater for myself @ JCP's for $7.17!! Woo Hoo!! All the winter stuff is on sale here now that it's getting warmer! I'll keep an eye out for more great deals & hopefully remember to take a few pictures!
A few things worth mentioning
I am working on perfecting a recipe for teething biscuits. I made some yesterday that both MJ AND Bug liked, but they weren't hard & dense like I wanted, so I will try another batch today with a few alterations. Once I get them perfected I will post the recipe for you all to try.
When we were at WalMart yesterday wandering the aisles I found these!
If you like marshmallows & chocolate then there is no way that these little bites will not hit the spot when that craving strikes! They are snack sized marshmallows covered in chocolate! 24 little bites = 1 serving for 130 calories! Definitely worth searching for!
Well, I better be finishing this up & gettin' some laundry done!
Have a great day!
