My Life in Pictures....

Hello all...I am still crazy busy so I thought I would give you a very quick (like a nanosecond) review of the 2 weeks I spent in the Midwest.
ALOT occurred in those 2 weeks, if you follow me on twitter (which you don't have to but if you want to, its totally fine with me...because in all honesty, I'm on twitter way more than the blog...and I tell you way more...probably too much, on my twitter...anyway I digress)

For those of you that don't know, my mother had her reconstructive surgery about 3 weeks ago now. This is what Siteman looks like at night... NO ONE ANYWHERE, actually that's what it looked like when we got there at 5:30 in the morning too... Her surgery was 16 hours long. More to come on that...

While I was in the STL I got to meet up with this 2 wonderful ladies from Mrs. Everlasting and fellow mil wife, Running in Stilettos. Love them... I felt bad because I was really sick during this time... But we had a great time, and 2 glasses of wine always make me a happy girl...especially when I'm highly medicating... I hope to see them again next time I'm in STL.
While in STL I stayed with my cousin a couple of nights. This is her dog Simon...he hates me. He growled at me the entire time. I attempted to win his affection with food...it kinda worked but not really... The entire time there I sang to him... "My name is Simon...and I like to do drawings..." Bonus points if you know what that is from...he was named after that character...While out grocery shopping with my cousin we stopped off at the petstore since they were having adoptions. I met this lil guy, he was missing a toe on one of his paws. He was the calmest doggie ever. I fell in love with him. I texted the Mr... he said NO WAY... I almost cried when we had to leave...


After almost a week in the hospital, Mama Jetplane was released and we headed home to Southern Illinois where my family resides.


I was subjected to taking out my Mom's dog Hank in the rain... he has to wear a raincoat...no worries, he enjoys his raincoat but not the rain.

Since I was around, I got to attend my college roomie's baby shower. It was so great to see her and my other roomie from college. Miss those girls so much.

And attended an Ugly Sweater Party at a friend's house... I was really upset because my sweater was not ugly enough. I didn't know about the party and had to run to the Dollar General for a sweatshirt. But hey I still had a great time...

I became even sadder when my antler broke...

While at home I also got to meet up with 2 other wonderful bloggers... We had a great time together, and figured out that we literally know TONS of the same people...it is such a small world after all. Is that good or bad???
Nina and Mandy are just as sweet as you would except them to be...

So there is a quick snapshot of the 2 weeks back at home. I promise to give you more info on Mama Jetplane later this week...
I'm off to Pcola tomorrow afternoon for a work trip...sad that Mr. Jetplane can't come with me, everyone else is bringing their spouses, correction bringing their wives..BOO...darn flight school... oh well... At least I'll get to sport my new Tory Burch dress to the holiday party!!

Glad to see you had at least some enjoyment on your sick trip! Guess I will just have to break down and do the twitter, to get the good stuff!
Happy Holidays

Girl, you have been busy! I'm so glad that your mama is doing well and is recovering.

You sure didn't get to stay home for long did you? Hope your next trip is a safe one!

The good ole CAM building. I've spent WAY too much time there. I even lived across the street above St Louis Bread. That place can be CREEPY during the wee hours! :)
