Random Days are Here Again

I've been meaning to post about a whole bunch of things, so it just makes sense to do a post about all of them! Aren't you excited?! ;-)

First, I think I almost completely forgot to mention my little sewing party with Annie and Miranda this past Monday. We had a great time and got a lot accomplished...despite Jasper's attempts to beg for food and attention. I ended up taking him with me to Annie's because he got so excited while I was loading the car. He knew I was going somewhere, and somehow had gotten the impression he was supposed to go too. It's a good thing my friends like him!! Haha!



Annie worked on an apron, Miranda worked on a burp rag and diaper holder...thing...and I made a wallet! I found a great tutorial a while back, but could never find the right fabric. Lucky for me my bestie had some fabric lying around that she didn't want! =D So, I took it and turned it into a super cute wallet {though it definitely has its imperfections}!

Let's see... What else is there? Oh yes. I got my hair cut yesterday! Annie and I went together, and also ran a whole bunch of errands. Anyway, I wanted to get it trimmed and layered before Joe comes home. I've been growing it out for a while, and it got to the point where it was almost unmanageable and just really annoying. I'm not 100% in love with the new cut just yet, but it's growing on me. Literally. LOL!


I think my main issue with it is that the top layers are shorter than I'd like. Apparently I wasn't clear when I said "I'd like to keep as much of the length as possible." It is relatively the same length on the bottom layers... I also didn't like the way she fixed it. She curled the ends under...which would have been fine if she had curled them toward my face instead of away from it. It totally looked like an 80s cut. *sigh* Anyway, it's looking better today... And the important thing is that I can still pull it back. =)

So, what do you think of my new haircut?

❊❊❊

In homecoming news, I decided that today was my last day at the museum....for a while. I need to focus on getting the house and other things ready for Joe to come home. I feel so relieved knowing that my only responsibilities right now are my husband, our home and Jasper. =)

I also got a bunch of flags for the driveway yesterday. Actually, I stole the idea from Annie but I don't think she minds. We hit up the NEX and BX {after she found the the PX was out} trying to find flags in the size we wanted. Not to mention we'd looked at WalMart and Target. It took all those stores to be able to find flags. And apparently no stores in Hawaii think it's time to put out their July 4th decorations. It's less than a month a way and there are like zero flags/decorations to be found. Seriously. *sigh*

Anyway. I got Joe's banner from BuildASign a couple months ago, so I don't have to worry about that! Now all I have to do is make some sort of pennant/banner to put around the back door and a sign to take to homecoming. =) I won't give you my list of household chores and errands. And because the commissary is being raided like every other day, I decided to start stocking up on Joe's favorite things while I was there. It was torture. I hate the commissary when it's busy. All those people make me feel anxious.

Also while we were out an about yesterday, Annie and I got to see the ship that "buried" Osama bin Laden's body at sea!!! We tried to get some up close pictures, but we got yelled at by some Navy MPs. Woops. ;-)


So, we walked back to the car and drove around to get some better pictures. =) We won't be denied!! And honestly, I don't understand how it's okay for the local news crew to come in and film, but it's not okay for us to take pictures. Seriously?! I also don't understand how milspouses aren't allowed to divulge any deployment information, but the local news broadcasts deployment dates, locations, minimal mission information and redeployment dates. But that's another post for a different day.

Pretty cool right?!

Well, I guess that's about all for today!! Make sure you check out Chantal at A Blog A Day While You're Away for the Milspouse Roundup this week!

Happy Friday!

I love the wallet that you made, it's SO cute!

I think your hair cut is super cute. I hate getting my hair cut because I hate it for the first couple of days.

How fun! It sounds like you had a great time making that cute bag! How exciting that it's getting close to Joe being home!

You are awesome at sewing! So jealous- I suck at it. Your hair looks great, plus I'm a firm believer that you don't really "like" it until 3-5 days after. If you're still looking for flags the MCX has all of the 4th decorations out...
