Hudini is back!

In the form of my Tabby Cat! Yesterday while I was in Wal-mart I had her in the car with some water and the windows cracked. Apparently she decided that she didn't want to be in the car anymore and squeezed her way out one of the windows. Jamie wasn't with me and I called him first thing balling so hard that he couldn't understand me. Since she was nowhere to be found I took my groceries back home and picked him up so that he could help me look. Once back at Wal-mart we had them check the tapes and they discovered that she ran for the trees on the side of the building. We searched for 30-40 minutes to no avail and decided to give up. :( We came home waited a little while and tried again. To our great astonishment and some help of random people in the parking lot we actually found her! :) Now I can finally say that my cat has a little bit of experience in the "wild." lol, at least 4 hours of experience. :) We're just glad to have her home and safe!

Father's Day Surprise

So, I know that Father's Day was a while ago, but Jamie had requested an awesome present. He didn't give me specifics but he wanted something good. So, I'd thought long and hard and finally came up with this idea.

Jamie had asked for candles, lots of candles in passing. So I figured that I'd give him candles like when people hang candles in outdoor living spaces from trees. But since this is inside I hung them from the ceiling via hooks and fishing line. I found the candle holders for $1, got jewelry wire for $3 and the fishing line for $2. The candles are just little tea light candles that are really inexpensive but they gave a big punch. They look really awesome and the best part is that you can take them down if you like or leave them up to give a nice wonderland effect. Originally I wanted short mason jars but I found these instead. I think  I would prefer the jars as far as the outdoor feel that it brings. There's nothing wrong with these though, Jamie just said, "Wow! It's like out of Harry Potter!" Which is fine because we're total Potter junkies, but that's not quite the mood I wanted. Whatever, as long as it's mystical I guess! All in all, we're pleased with the results : )

Late Night Dinner

Jamie and I are still trying to fit into a routine, especially now that I'm working. The other night I got off work around 5 and Jamie and I were feeling some spaghetti was on the menu and the only request that my husband had was that it be homemade garlic bread. So, of course I was a succor and did that for him. The only thing that was wrong with that was the fact we didn't get to eat dinner until 8 or 9. lol. What can I say, it's good bread. 

Jamie's Grad!

So on the 27th of June I finally got my other half back! It's been really nice to have my honey home :) As I'm sure you can imagine. We had a really great time over the weekend before and it was definitely a long drive home from Missouri. But now that all is said and done, it's been an experience for the better. I'm so proud of my Army Man!
