Drill 1-2-3

This past weekend was another drill weekend.
  1. Friday: Lee and I went to dinner at one of our favorite new restaurants in town; Cha-Cha's. They have some yummy Mexican food and an extra yummy swirl that I love. They were crazy packed and we didn't want to wait 45 minutes for a table. Instead, we saddled up to the bar and ate there. It was nice to impromptu our way to dinner for a quick bite. We didn't have much time because Lee had to get home and pack, etc for his big weekend.
  2. Saturday:I did my best to do a whole lot of nothing while he was gone. I did manage the laundry, clean the sheets and other necessary things I do on the weekends. I mention laundry and sheets as two separate chores because washing our sheets and taking our duvet off our king size comforter is a hassle to me. So...I guess I was a bit productive but it wasn't at all the typical chaotic Saturday that has been occurring lately. Saturday night I went to see Shutter Island with Nick, Kristie, Taylor and Jacob. We ate dinner in the balcony. In a nutshell; the movie wasn't balcony worthy but it's always a treat to have Date Night with friends. We're all super excited about Nick and Kristie having a baby in a week!
  3. Sunday: I watched too much HGTV when I couldn't sleep Saturday night. Sunday afternoon I strolled around a few places and found some fabulous material to bling out my curtains in the dining room. I have to admit that I am pretty proud of myself. I haven't taken a picture of the now complete dining room but I'll give you a peek at the before and after of the curtains. Lee was impressed when he came home and saw the curtains. He actually liked them! The Army gave him more shots and sent him home hungry again. I'm glad he prefers my food to theirs. This month there is exciting news to share from drill weekend! A Military Ball is approaching us! My first Ball. I am super excited. The SGTS were vague with the details but we should be receiving more information soon. I'm going to start dress shopping...Scroll down to see the camera phone curtain pictures!
