Just when I start to relax and breathe, another jet takes off and I have to hold the picture frames to prevent them from falling off their nails on the wall. And these are just the "little" jets! At least it's safe to say we'll be living away from base the next time.
So I had a great weekend. It was a blast getting to know better and hang out with the ladies my husband's friends have married. (Make sense?) Here are a few pictures (Thank you, Buddy, for the prompt) and a shaky video of the Bellagio fountains.
Paris! It was a great hotel to stay in--I thought of my friend Audrey a lot and know she would have LOVED it. the hotel itself seemed to be rather quiet (and romantic...) except for our immediate neighbors across the wall. I don't know if they were all sleeping there, but there were at least 5 guys and 2 girls who walked out of the one room when we were in the hallway (where one of the girls slurred that she had lots of single guys for us, and where Whitney wittingly responded that we have lots of husbands who wouldn't like that very much) Yeah, they were fun to hear at 6am when they would just be getting back from a fun night/morning...
So the following pictures represent me trying to take a picture with Buzz and Woody (which is sort of an inside joke for Tyler's flight). They refused unless I put money in the tip jar so this is me not wanting to put money in. (Tyler says you can really see the sass and "hear" what I'm saying with this pose)
Here is the shaky video of the Bellagio fountains. It was our last night and we still hadn't made the loooong trek across the street to stand over the water to watch the fountain/music/lights display. It was gorgeous. And worth the wind and cold.
I thought about taking a picture of the Chipotle I went out of my way to get after landing and getting my car in Oklahoma City, but I was so upset by getting LOST (on an unmarked interstate heading West to Amarillo instead of South to Lawton) and then finding a connecting highway that had no speed limit sign and then getting my FIRST speeding ticket on a road that I wasn't even supposed to be on. The worst way to end a fabulous weekend There goes all the money I won gambling. :(
However...good news in on the horizon. I PASSED my final test to becoming a Certified Teacher in the state of Texas-wahoooooo!! I believe now my "folder" just has to go through the board (or something) It's all very unclear to me, and gets me even more frustrated with my certification company. Oh well. I still passed. Maybe we should celebrate by going to a concert tomorrow night at a local pub....Maybe that was already planned, but now we have an even better excuse!
I am also looking forward to breakfast at Cracker Barrel (they have THE BEST breakfast) with the Bible study gals to (sadly) say goodbye to yet another lady who is moving on. I'm really going to miss Char-she and her husband attended the same church and Sunday school that Tyler and I have been going to. It's been so much fun getting to know them.
We've got Tyler's solo and naming party on Saturday night (where the wives were almost not invited but thanks to a change in heart by the men folk, we get to attend...and be strict observers. But I'm also making food for it, so at least I've got that going for me.) Should be another fun and busy weekend!
Hope you all have a great weekend-thanks for stopping by!
