Random Weekend Ramblings

1. Friday we attended a Brief at the Squadron to discuss what will be our lives after Mr. Jetplane completes flight school. We can stay here, go to England, or go to Idaho. We learned pro's and con's to all of the bases - QOL (Quality of Life), Geography, Flying, Deployment cycle, etc. Mr. Jetplane will get to rank his choices - 1st, 2nd, and 3rd. His grades and the needs of the AF will make the decision. We'll know next spring where we are off to and then we'll decide if we're ready to start trying to have a baby or not.

2. Here are some samples of paint colors we've selected for the kitchen. I have paint swatches on a couple spots in the kitchen. I'll post one next to the kitchen cabinets later this week. I prefer the middle. The colors are Limeade, California Roll, and Green Apple.

3. This weekend we took the dogs to the vet to get their shots, got lost in the middle of nowhere because my GPS doesn't even know where we are when we're at our house (since we live in BFE)...just to find out that Mr. (my navigator in life and in the jet) took us the most round about way. We showed up 20 minutes late...FYI its only 7 miles away from the house.

4. We went and saw Couples Retreat on Saturday. It was funny...it wasn't OMG I'm going to throw up because I can't stop laughing funny...but it was funny. Now that we're married you start to think about things differently so the movie touched a cord with us. And we'll always go to Applebee's together... (topic from movie)

5. Out to the movie I sported my new Warriors In Pink scarf I blogged about early this month. *I might be giving one away on this lil blog later this week*6. The Jetplanes took their first time to Sam's Club together this weekend. We bought Gatorade, Garlic Bread, Lunch Meat, Hand Soap, Protein Drinks (Mr.), Granola Bars, Fruit, etc. On the way home Mr Jetplane turns to me and asks... "What happened to us?" Ha ha.

7. Sunday I had to return things to Target and TJMaxx. FYI- my TJMaxx isn't a Home Goods...yes please feel sorry for me. I stopped at JCP for their Friends and Family Sale. I haven't shopped inside a JCP in years. I did my office desk online, but that doesn't count. I have been looking for blue/navy pillows for our living room. JCP was having buy 1 pillow for full price and get the other for 88 cents. Plus I had 20% off coupon. The striped pillow is normally $40 and the navy velvet pillow $25. I got them both for under $30. Success!! 8. The parental units are coming tomorrow. I have to pick them up from the Raleigh airport tomorrow evening...

Happy Monday. I have a busy day in the office today thru Wednesday, I'm taking Thursday and Friday off to spend with the parents. Have a great week.

I also love the middle paint. It is a pretty color.

Idaho, huh? *insert lame potato joke here*

DeDe said...

Seeing as I JUST painted our basement and have looked at 1,000 paint colors, I like the middle color as well!

Kaitlin said...

My husband and I had that conversation this weekend a few times of what happened to us. So funny!

I really love the middle one!

Just imagine the carb overload you could have in Idaho any time you want!

Sarah Ann said...

My vote goes for the middle as well. It seems to be the least bright.
Also, I would SO rank England as No.1! We've been considering staying in so that we can live abroad for a couple years...Idaho is pretty though, so at least if you have to go there you get nice scenery.

I love a great deal on homewares.... I haven't been to a JC Penney in the longest time!

Hannah Noel said...

Would you mind sharing with me the pros/cons for Idaho? :)

I like the middle color too.

We saw couple retreat last weekend and I kind of feel the same as you about it. It wasn't super funny but entertaining.

We have a JCPenney home store here (they just sell housewares) and I've recently realized that JCP has some cute stuff for a good price. Those pillows will be great, especially for the price!

Kristen said...

I LOVE the color on the right. It seems like it'd make the room cheery without being overwhelming.

Lil' Woman said...

I like the one of the right!
Idaho?!? No, Udaho! :) (lame but it made me laugh!)

Crazy Shenanigans said...

I like all of those colors! I'm getting ready to the dining room in green!
