Driving in snow: Tips from AAA –

I had stared this article this morning when we were supposed to get actual snow, but I guess this will be good for my New England friends/family/readers.

Shower Thoughts #76: It’s good to be a veteran

  1. Wow, a lot of people seem to understand that Veteren’s Day isn’t about car and furniture sales… about time.

For all those who have served, are serving, and will serve, thank you. I know you may not see it as a sacrifice because that’s just the way you are, but I just wanted to pass that along. Although I initially enlisted for certain reasons, I came to realize that it was an honor and privalige to serve.  I have been out of the service for 9 years now, but it feels like yesterday. I think about my time in the military everyday, and I’m thankful for the opportunities that I was given then and now because of my service.

The following pictures were taken by me this past April when we took a mini-vacation to Washington, D.C. for spring break.

Top 3 Tuesday: Bucket List Edition

I was sitting here trying to think of things I could get Jason for Christmas that would surprise him.  We talked about how hard it was for me to get things he wanted and how easy it was from him to get things for me.  He argued that in fact it wasn’t.  Then I listed some things that I would like, and realized that some of the entries would be good for my bucket list.  So that gave me the idea for this weeks Top 3….

What are the top 3 things on your bucket list? Here are mine:

  1. Drive a race car
  2. Travel to all 50 states
  3. Go on a cruise

(Yes I know that these are not very ambitious, but they all seem like they would be fun.)

This is my favorite time of year without a doubt.  Even though it’s still summer, it seems like fall is right around the corner.  Some of the leaves on the trees are already starting to change color.  Football is back and not too far behind will be some cooler temperatures.  Getting ready to take another little mini-vacation to D.C. … this time it will be just us girls.  Beth’s long-time friend goes to school in D.C. and with some luck I’ll be able to take the girls site seeing, to the museums and maybe a show at the Kennedy Center if there is anything worth seeing while we’re up there.  I love D.C. in the fall on a nice crisp day. Washington, D.C. here we come!

The World War II memorial is my favorite place in DC.
