Lucky Girl

We may not have had the typical anniversary day, but it was still pretty nice. Joe got to come home for lunch, which was surprising and nice. =) Turns out they were supposed to have the day off, but it didn't happen because the dude in charge didn't get the memo. It was ok, though because he got off work early too! I'd sent him to the commissary for some caesar dressing for dinner, and - among a few other things - he came home with these!

Yeppers, I'm spoiled! He's so sweet. =)

It was a low-key evening of chicken caesar salad and garlic bread for dinner, Season 6 of LOST for our entertainment, and a little bit of Mario Kart on the Wii. Simple, fun, perfect. =) It may not have been fancy, but I got to spend it with the love of my life. I consider myself pretty darn lucky.

Our rings still look pretty good after 2 years of wear and tear. I *heart* my rings. =D

 I love these kinds of pictures.


Well, since our HHG still haven't arrived, we're still using furniture from ACS. *big, huge sigh* I absolutely hate this furniture! When I thought of borrowing furniture, I pictured furniture similar to my own. Ooooh, was I wrong!! This is by far the ugliest, crappiest furniture I've ever seen in my life. And I'm stuck with it until our HHG get here. Don't get me wrong, I don't wanna be sitting on the floor but they could have picked better furniture for us. Seriously. I feel like I'm sitting in a crappy Hawaiian hotel. Can't picture it? Allow me to show you...

Oh yeah. Craptastic, isn't it? There's an extremely large, ugly dining table to the right of the picture that you can't see. It matches the furniture. As does the coffee table that we're using to hold up the TV. Doesn't it make you wanna vomit a little bit? Bleh.

This is the bed we're sleeping on. 
(Accompanied on either side by nightstands and then 2 dressers.)
It's actually pretty decent...until you sit/lay on it:

Yes, that's plastic. Yes, our mattress is covered in it. No, we can't take it off. Why? Because it's unsanitary. Ever slept on a plastic-covered mattress? No? Don't! It's annoying as all get-out! Every time you or your hubby moves, not only do you feel it, you hear it. *sigh*

Needless to say, I'm ready for our HHG to get here.

Before I go...remember me telling you about the little "accident" our car got into when it was shipped over here? I still don't understand how it happened, but this is what it looked like when we got it.

I can't figure out for the life of me how it happened like that. Whatev. It's fixed now. =)

Sorry for the complete randomness of this post! I've actually been meaning to share pics of our crappy, borrowed furniture for a while now. ;-)

Hope y'all had a good Tuesday!!

I was going to say it looks like crappy Hawaiian furniture but you beat me to it lol, I'm hoping your good furniture comes soon!

Oh man! That is no fun! We travel with an air mattress after the 2nd move when our HHG were super delayed (almost lost). It pretty much fits into a suitcase, so it's kind of wasted space, but at least we're sleeping on our own mattress. I hope your stuff finds you SOON!!!

That is pretty craptastic furniture. It's reminiscent of the 1970s. LOL! ;)

I can't believe you have to sleep on plastic?!?! I had to do that one summer when I visited a college. All I remember is *sticking* to the plastic even through the sheet. Yuck. I'm praying and keeping my fingers crossed that your HHG get there soon! =)

Hehe I'm loving all the anniversary posts. Everyone must have gotten married in June, lol. My anniversary is coming up soon..the 1s one..yay!

Totally random question here...is his ring made of tungsten???

JG said...

Haha! It reminds me of my aunt's old furniture. Only it wasn't THAT bad! Hope the HHG gets there soon. Happy anniversary!

How sweet that hubby surprised you with flowers. I'm so sorry this move has been such a nightmare. One of these days you will be all settled in with your stuff and you will look back and laugh. :)

Oh dear...im glad he came back for lunch. My 2nd anniversary is coming up during christmas, I cannot wait!!! I love those flowers by the way. Let him know there is a new army wife who is jealous of you right now. My husband is in basic right now, and cannot come home during lunch -:)
