Headed to the Big V-A!

We are so excited to get some time in Virginia this week!!

Unfortunately we can't leave until Wednesday morning {gotta save up that leave for wedding fun!} but we have some jam packed days of activities ahead of us!

On the to-do list:

  • Thanksgiving dinner. yum.
  • Midnight outlet shopping
  • Engagement Party {!!}
  • Diana's Baby Shower, or should I say little Miss Emma's Shower :)
  • OSL get together at Dan and Lisa's
  • Hittin up AJ GATOR'S with all my lovely old friends {for those of you not familiar with Great Brisdge, Virginia, AJ Gator's is a total townie bar...where we are destined to run into a million people that we haven't thought about -and probably forgot existed- since high school.}
I am getting so excited!!!

Now if I could only get this school work done and out of the way...grrr...

Let's Say Thanks

In this week of Thanksgiving, I thought I would let you know about a cool program that Xerox is doing right now...Let's Say Thanks.

 {this postcard was drawn by a 9 year old 
named Powell from Statesboro, Georgia}

All that you have to do is go to the site and pick a hand drawn design for your thank you card. You then enter your name and select a message and Xerox prints it and has partnered with Give2TheTroops to send them in large care packages to go overseas. 

This literally takes 10 seconds to do. As always, no matter your stance on the war, you can imagine how hard it is for these men and women to be away from their family and friends at any time, but especially during the holidays. So say thanks!

About the Navy...

I know, I know, this blog is supposed to be about what is going on with us since Austin joined the Navy...and I used to be good at conveying that.

Unfortunately for you all, there used to be actual progress of Austin to keep you updated...and now? His schedule looks like this on a typical day:

7:30am: Muster at the base {the lieutenant makes sure they are all still there and alive}
8:00am: Return home
1:00pm: Call in to the base, to make sure he is still alive and they don't need him to do anything

and t-t-th-th-th-that's all folks.

Seriously. That is his routine until January when his classes start. Tough life, huh?

My routine? Blogging to procrastinate from doing research proposals and studying for comprehensive exams :)

Small Update, Big Addition

We got a new {to us} TV!

Lindsey and Darren have been clearing out some of the things stored at Darren's parents' house, one item of which was a 32" television that they no longer need because of their own recent acquisition of a flat screen.

So, they decided to gift it to us! Yay! {Before we had a 27" that I had had since freshman year of college in the living room, and that extra 5" makes a big difference to Austin and his football viewing}

Thanks guys!
