Very Productive Lunch Hour...

1. Ate a delicious steak taco
2. Finished my 2nd Sookie Stackhouse book
3. Bought a cute Lilly dress for $50 at Dillards

Update - Here's the dress, I almost bought the tan one too because they were both in my size. They had a 70% off then an additional 30%. Holla!!! BTW- Dillards is a department store, not all Dillards carry Lilly.


I tried to make it until February but couldn't.... And to make it all the worse...

I have a trip planned to the outlet mall this weekend...

****DON'T FORGET TO ENTER MY GIVEAWAY ========>

TGIF Y'All

Its Friday everybody.... This week has flown by and next Friday I'm heading up to the Chi to hang out with my girlfriends. I can't wait.

First things first, thanks for the kind words about missing my hubby. And yes, the picture is of us. The lovely Michelle at Oeil Photography took our engagement pics around P'cola. Please check out her work. She is a fellow mil wife and currently living in Jacksonville.

But most importantly it is Friday, I had to give you your dose of Pug. Here is my lil hunk of loving Milo. As you can see there is a big pile of pillows on the other side of the couch, he prefers to lay on top of all of them and watch television. Except right here, he wanted me to throw his monkey. This is his most favorite toy. He brings it to bed with him every night. I say "You ready for bed?" I head to my bedroom and he follows with the monkey in his mouth....

I'll stop the world and melt with you...



Tonight is one of those nights, that I really miss Mr. Jetplane. March 17th can't come soon enough.

Jetplanes planning a getaway...

So Mr. Jetplane will be back home around March 17th, yes the end is in sight.

Last night, Mr. Jetplane mentioned that we should go on a vacay. Well, no complaints here. Since he has his bum knee, we're getting rolled back a couple of classes, so we'll get a couple extra months in P'cola. So I'll have him from March until July all to myself.

We're gonna plan a lot to do in those months....

A weekend to Biloxi, New Orleans, and ATL. We also have weddings in ATL and STL. But we want to take a trip for a week somewhere, but not spend too much money. The Jetplanes 1 year anniversary will be on June 7th and my 29th Bday will June 2nd, so the big vacay might be that week.

Any suggestions? The only requirements... it must be warm and there must be plenty of activities for my hubby to keep himself occupied while I read by a pool, lake, and/or ocean.

Also ..... Please don't forget to enter my 300th post giveaway.

This is just plain mean...

From the NY Post.

Like all of us don't already have body image problems.... So Jessica Simpson gained a couple lbs, haven't we all. While I might not be her biggest fan, I feel sorry for her and that unfortunate outfit. Leave her alone.

Housewives of the OC

Okay, the past 2 weeks, I have been disgusted by you. It's one thing to show underage drinking and its other to show it being completely condoned by a room full of adults.

These girls are 17 and 18 years old. They shouldn't be drinking at a bowling alley, how did they get home from said bowling alley. And don't these kids realize that they are being taped and this is on national television.

So Mrs. Jetplane wasn't an angel, far from it, but I wasn't on national television.

And, Jeanna's kids are out of f-ing control. I was completely shocked and outraged that they talked to her like that. I wouldn't have stood for it. So what if your dad was a horrible husband and you heard him talk that way to your mother. You know it hurt her self esteem and know its not right. I speak from personal experience here, boys.

You know right from wrong, and I hope to God you see yourselves on tv and realize what total a-holes you are.

And Jeanna, take charge of your life and let your kids know that you're their mother and you demand their respect.

Rant over... Happy Hump Day to all.

XOXO

Sookie Stackhouse is my Hero


So as I promised a while ago, I'm going to give you the low down on Dead until Dark, the 1st book in the Sookie Stackhouse series.

Overall I really enjoyed the book, but it is always a little awkward to read a book after you've watched a movie or television show based upon the book. Almost everything in the 1st book is in the television show, True Blood, however some of the things are different in the book than the television show (but I'm not going to tell you what).

First off, this book is COMPLETELY DIFFERENT from the Twilight series. That was a teenage love story, this is an adult love story, and by adult I mean, sex, drugs, and vampires and all that entails. But I really liked it and would recommend it.

I started the 2nd book and I find that book even better, probably because that story is completely new to me and hasn't be touched on in the series yet. I highly suggest the series.

And in honor of my 300th Post last week and my love of a new book series, I'm giving away a copy of Dead Until Dark.

Yes, that's right a free copy of the book, and maybe, just maybe, a couple of little extras for all you fine folks.

Do what do you need to do?

Simply leave a comment on this post and you'll be entered to win. The contest will end next Monday, so please enter....

I love you all, but this is getting out of hand...

I mentioned a few posts ago that every where I turn someone is trying to get pregnant, is pregnant, or just had a baby.

I jokingly said that every week someone is announcing they are pregnant. Well, 2 more couples added to the list this weekend. Mr. Jetplane called me and gave me the news.

The conversation went like this....

Mr. J: "Hi babe, I got some news for you."
Me: "Okay, what is it?"
Mr. J: "Are you sitting down?"
Me: "Yes, what is it?"
Mr. J: "Ummm..."
Me: "You're not going to tell me someone else is pregnant are you?"
Mr. J: "Yes... The H's are pregnant (these are Mr. Jetplane's roommates in Texas, right now)."
Me: "That's great they've been trying to get pregnant, which means they have totally been getting it on in the next bedroom... Ha Ha."
Mr. J: "I know don't remind me."
Me: "How far along is she?"
Mr. J: " I don't know, am I suppose to ask, that's kinda personal?"
Me: "Yes, that is a standard question. So who else is pregnant"
Mr. J: "My cousin and his wife (one of Mr. Jetplane's groomsmen and Mr. JP was his cousin's BM in their wedding in August)."
Me: "Wow they didn't waste anytime, did they?"
Mr. J: "Well they've been together forever. They started dating right before I moved to Indy."
Me: "Yeah, well we started dating a couple of months after you moved to Indy. So we've been together about as long as they have."
Mr. J "Oh I guess you're right!"
Me: "I seriously feel like my uterus is in a vice."
Mr. J: "You're what's in a what?"
Me: "My UTERUS is in a vice. So much pressure..."
Mr. J: "I know my grandma and my dad asked me yesterday if you're pregnant yet and when we're going to get pregnant."
Me: "Please don't talk about my uterus with other people."
Mr. J: "Okay honey... We're not in a rush, considering we don't even live together right now, I sure hope you're not pregnant."


I do love and adore all the people that are having babies. I love babies, but I am feeling an overwhelming pressue to start wanting kids. Seriously if I find out one more person is pregnant today, I'm going to scream.

XOXO

Kicking it Old School

Well with award season upon us and stars being honored for all their amazing movies, I thought I would kick it back a few (several) years and share with you all some of my favorite movies from some of these stars that you may not have known about.

Mickey Rouke - back when he was unbelievably sexy, yes kiddos there was a time when he was fine ass piece of meat. If you want to see for yourselves, please watch the following....

Diner

5 guys in their 20's spend most of their time hanging out in a Diner. It's Christmas time in 1959, and the guys all begin to think it's about time they went about their lives without the comfort of the 'diner'.

9 1/2 Weeks - This movie is hot and makes you want to do naughty things with things with leftovers...


In the often impersonal city of New York, the capital that never sleeps and is filled with the shadows and secrets of its citizens, a man and a woman start a sexually orientated affair.
Kate Winslet

Heavenly Creatures - I believe this was Kate's first movie role. Its very dark but great, and directed by Peter Jackson (uhhh Lord of the Rings guy)


Two girls have an intense fantasy life; their parents, concerned the fantasy is too intense, separate them, and the girls take revenge.
Angelina Jolie

GIA - This is a true story HBO film based upon the tragic life of Gia Carangi, a top fashion model from the late 1970s.



Jeremy Piven

Very Bad Things - this movie has an outstanding cast and is VERY dark, but totally hilarious.
A group of friends head to Vegas for a bachelor party. But was happens in Vegas didn't stay in Vegas for these guys, a little sex, plenty of drugs, and a lot of murder.
Anyone else have some movies to recommend, I'm all ears.

You Found Me....How?

Google Analytics, as we all know, give us bloggers an inside look at who's taking a look into our own lil worlds.

Well, it also gives you a look at how people are finding your lil part of the blogosphere. It can be quite funny, but also a little freaky at the same time.

So you ask, well Mrs. Jetplane, how are people coming to your blog?

We'll start with fairly noral and reasonable methods....

leaving and loving blog
leaving and loving on a jet plane blog
mrs jetplane
mrs and mr jetplane
loving on a jetplane
mr jetplane

These are normal and fully acceptable.

Now let's get into some weird one...

Gay when the Wife's Away.... Yes and they have searched by this on more than one occassion.
I assume this is popping up from my blog about Mr. Jetplane throwing what I called a 'dinner' party in Texas.

Various searches about Long Hair, Hair Chopped, Hair Chopped Off, My New Hairdo, etc.

Trying to get Pregnant... Well if you've read my blog, you know that's not something I'm looking to do right now.

J Lo at the Gloden Globes and Golden Globes Target Commerical

Jet plane Decor and Jetplane at night... Really?

Thing for Suspenders.... Yes, it's true I have one, only Mr. Jetplane in his Mess Dress

Its Friday Folks...

And since it's Friday, Mrs. Jetplane has to give you some puggie lovin. I have no idea where this picture came from, I saved it a long time ago, so apologies, but I adore it. My puggie, loves, loves, loves, to take baths, and has been known on occasion to jump in the shower with you.

He did it all the time when he was a puppy. He just likes to stand in the shower with his head down letting the water hit him. Its very cute, but sometimes annoying.

Thank you for the wonderful comments on the portrait in the post below, I cannot wait to mail up to my parents next week. If you are seriously interested in a portrait email and we can talk about. Since my blog is on the DL, and I don't want anyone from work knowing about it, we have be kinda sneaky...

The artist is taking orders, however I believe I got a pretty good deal due to the fact that we're friends. I've recommended to her to start up an etsy store, she's interested in doing that but hasn't set it up yet. Right now, she has quite a bit of business and has a wait list.

Mama Jetplane is going to love this...

As promised here is the painting....

Take a look at the original pictures, didn't she do a wonderful job. I adore it and I know Mama Jetplane will as well. I actually cried when I saw it, because I knew how happy it would make my parents. The artist is the wife of one of my co-workers, she's incredibly talented. I'm thinking about having her to smaller portraits of Milo and Charlie's faces with a bright background, sort of Andy Warhol style (of course).

And as promised.... Here are my $8 shoes from Target. Pretty cute for 8 bucks, right?

Keeping it Healthy...

Mrs. Jetplane is now going to give you one of her favorite homemade salad dressing recipes. Its a low fat Poppy Seed salad dressing. Yes, I said Poppy Seed and its really good.

I serve this salad dressing over 2 different type of salad. This does make for a sweet salad dressing.

1. Spinach, Strawberry, Pine Nuts, and cubed precooked chicken.
2. Spinach, canned Mandarin oranges, thinly sliced red onion, and pine nuts.

3/4 cup sugar (I used Splenda)
1tbsp. dry mustard
1 tbsp. salt
1/2 small red onion (chopped)
1 cup oil (I use EVOO)
1/3 c. seasoned rice vinegar (I used apple cider vinegar)
1 1/2 tbsp. poppy seeds

Combine sugar, dry mustard, salt, red onion, oil, vinegar and poppy seeds in a blender.

I'll admit I don't use this recipe to the tee. Sometimes I add a little more mustard.

FYI - got the dog painting sitting in my office as I type. It is adorable and I actually cried when she brought it in. Mama and Pops Jetplane are going to flip out when they see it. I'm going to mail it to them next week. Its an oil painting so I want to give it plenty of time to dry. Can't wait to post pics of it tonight.

Mrs. Jetplane has been a bad girl...

I went to Target yesterday during my lunch hour and I spent $55. There I said it, its out in the open the spending fast has been broken. I feel so ashamed, no that's actually a lie, I don't feel ashamed but I suppose I should.

I went there to buy Baby C a little cotton onesie that I'm going to have embroidered with her initials on it, that was the plan at least. Mama J adores brown and pink so I found this adorable 100% long sleeve striped onesie (they live in Chicago, so its cold up there).

Well then I found a pair of J.Crew inspired peep toes for $8.00 clearance, so I bought them. I'll take a pic because I can't find them online. I mean come on $8.00, they are practically giving them away right?

Then I went to home decor and they had their seasonal home decor 30% off and I had to buy a set of these (well they were the only ones left). They are going in the guest bathroom, which is nautical/beach looking.

Oh and I also bought a set of t-shirt sheets in lime green. The master bedroom is navy, white, and hints of lime green. Mr. Jetplane has t-shirt sheets on his bed in Texas and says he wanted them at home. So we'll see how it goes, if I don't like them, well they'll get put to use on the air mattress.

I'm kinda a sheet snob, and I require them to be really soft. I personally enjoy an all white bed, but soon learned after we moved in together, that wouldn't be in the plan for us. You see Mr. Jetplane's body emits some weird stuff in his sleep and he literally stains the sheets. My beautiful high thread count white sheets, I bleach the crap out of them but it got to be really annoying. My mom said it was metals and impurities in his skin, I don't know what it was other than totally disgusting.

So I'll give you the update on the t-shirt sheets. I have to admit, while they do keep me warm, they remind me of shacking up with my old college boyfriend, he had jersey sheets.

So there... My shopping is all out in the open. But I promise to be good the rest of the month....

Excitement Level is High

Do you remember this lil picture?
Well, I commissioned a portrait to be made of it for my parents for Christmas. And guess what, I might be getting today. I am beyond excited and can't wait to show you.
FYI- If you haven't seen the picture, its of Milo when he was a puppy sitting with my family's yellow lab Honey. She passed away several years ago. She meant the world to my family and it still really missed. She was about 14 when this picture was taken. You can tell, her face is all white.

Keeping it on the Down Low

So Mrs. Jetplane can't really talk about what she does on a platform such as this and I really wish I could. The projects that I work on our confidential and the conversations that I have with people concerning said projects are confidential. Most of the times, the projects while intellectually demanding, can be down right BORING. But every once in a while, I get a project that is extremely relevant to the gossip loving, clothes whoring, reality television loving self of Mrs. Jetplane. And a project like that came in yesterday.

Times are tough right now in the American workplace, but I am so incredibly thankful that my company (while we did layoff several people after Thanksgiving) is currently thriving with projects. I have successfully closed 3 projects this month, my goal is 5 a month and I can see that actually happening.

The past few months have been hard all around, but I am seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. I am grateful for the opportunity to keep working at my job from home when we move. It would not be pleasant to have to look for a job in this economy. And for all of you out there who are, my thoughts and prayers are with you. I have been there and it can be tough.

I was laid off from my last job in Indy, and literally was on unemployment for 6 months. It was incredibly hard to find a financially comparable job when I moved to Florida to be with Mr. Jetplane. But I stuck it out and started my new job literally the week my unemployment ran out. And let me tell you, my unemployment from Indiana was not much at all. Thank God I had a substantial saving to live off of.

Word to the wise, save money while and when you can. There will come a time, when you will need it.

Back to Work....

FYI - I swear the tofu recipe doesn't taste like tofu. I hate health food, I can't eat frozen WW meals and fat free cheese. I wouldn't eat this if it tasted like tofu. Mr. Jetplane wouldn't eat it if it did either.

Mrs. Jetplane cooking healthy...

Well as promised I have a great recipe that believe it or not has tofu in it. Now, let me tell you, Mrs. Jetplane is not a fan of tofu, so I was very leery of this recipe. But I trusted my dear friend Dr. W. She actually got this recipe from the nutritionist that she was seeing, it was part of the diet plan she was given.

Ingredients

1 Packet of Hidden Valley Ranch
1 14oz Tofu (recipe recommends Mori-Nu brand) UPDATE: Firm Tofu
3/4 cup canola oil
2 tbsp of vinegar (I used apple cider)
1 egg
3 packets of Splenda
Dash of Season All Salt

Blend egg and vinegar on Medium, with blender on add oil in a thin stream.
Then add seasonings and tofu.
Blend and then stir.
Refrigerate before stirring.

1/4cup = 1 serving

I love to eat this with veggies, put it on a sandwich instead of mayo, use as a dip for chicken strips, or eat with melba toast crackers.

Enjoy!

And heads up...my next healthy recipe is an awesome Poppy Seed Salad Dressing which will seriously rock your world. I make it all summer love to put it on spinach and strawberry salad or a spinach, pine nut, and mandarin orange salad.

These are a few of my favorite things...

Mrs. Jetplane is trying and I do emphasize the word "trying" to watch what she eats. So I wanted to give all the new additions to the Mrs.' kitchen.


So I love chocolate milk.... love it. But I don't like regular white milk, at all. So this is now in my fridge and I drink it while getting ready in the morning... It is so yummy...



This is my new favorite salad dressing, its not "low" fat but it is 5g of fat for 2 tbsp. I'll be honest, I put about 1 tbsp on my salads, so it isn't too bad. My salad are bagged Spring Mix, broccoli slaw (which is the best thing ever, it is cabbage, carrots, and broccoli sliced), cucumbers, sliced almonds, and cranberries. Sometimes, I'll put a light sprinkling of cheddar cheese, but it doesn't really need it.
Finally, I love Laughing Cow Light Spreadable Cheese. I love to put this on a toasted bagel or eat it on Melba toast. It comes in Swiss, Garlic Herb, and French Onion all in light. I eat this on a whole grain bagel for breakfast a lot of mornings.




Tonight I'm going to post a recipe for low cal ranch dip that is made with tofu, yes tofu. And I actually like it, so does Mr. Jetplane.

XOXO

Keeping up with the Jetplanes...

This is my 300th post. I can't believe I'm at my 300th post. I'm planning a giveaway which I'll discuss later this week, but right now I want to say thank you to all for keeping you with the Jetplanes. With Mr. Jetplane being MIA for the past few months, blogging has really became an outlet for me, and I truly appreciate it.

And in case anyone was thinking about getting Mrs. Jetplane a lil gift to commemorate this achievement, how about this lil thing.

Its from Tiffany's and it retails for $125.00, but I have found it on Tiffany sale sites for a lot less. But I really concerned about the quality. Has anyone ever bought anything from these type of sites.

Cool thing is the propellers move... oh cool is that?

Getting Knocked Up...

No not me, but it seems like everyone else. Friends from home, from college, from past jobs, when I say everyone I mean everyone is having babies. Honestly, every other day I'm hearing about being pregnant, having a baby, or trying to have a baby.

I am so unbelievably happy for them, don't get me wrong. But, it makes me really think, what the heck is wrong with me. I still feel too young to have kids, and I'm 28. I felt weird saying that when I was home Thanksgiving holding my cousin's baby, since she's 24.

I still feel awkward when people tell me they are trying to have kids. I still giggle to myself, b/c all the people I knew were always trying to "not" get pregnant.

First time I really thought that I was ready for kids was a couple of weeks before our wedding. I thought I was ready to get pregnant and have kids within the first 6 to 9 months after getting married. Well, that time is now, and needless to say not living with Mr. Jetplane makes it a little tough to get knocked up.

But that's ok, because we're not ready, well I'm not ready. I'm scared of it all. I'm scared of getting sick. I have a weird stomach and I get nauseous all the time. And I know when I'm pregnant, I'll have morning sickness, mid day sickness, middle of the night sickness, all of it. And I'm sorry, but I'm totally freaked about something growing inside my body. Maybe I'm totally immature about it, but its weird. I always think of the scene in Spaceballs when the little alien jumps out of the guy's body and proceeds to do a song and dance. (I told you I'm immature about this...) I'm also freaked out about feeding a baby with milk my body makes. Its weird and I'm not comfortable with it.

I'm sorry if I've offended anyone. I know a lot of women are actively trying to get pregnant, and I hope to someday be there with you all. But, as you can see, I'm not quite mentally prepared for this huge and miraculous gift of life. People continually reassure me that this will all change when I'm pregnant.

I hope I'm not the only one out there that feels this way. And if I am, well, all I can say is... I wasn't wrong to think I'm a complete weirdo.

Just one of them days...

I have nothing really monumental to say this morning. Just a couple of random bamblings to get off my chest.


1. I kinda feel like a loser. My 2 best friends from high school are both doctors, one is a practicing dentist and the other is getting her Ph.D. from an ivy league school. I have a B.S. in business.


2. Wow, I got alot of facebook love last night and this morning. Several people tracked me down on Facebook, that's kinda scary. Yes, I will be your friends on facebook, but please don't post anything on there about my blog. This is on DL. I don't want to be on blast on facebook, I would never hear the end of it.


3. I loved the concert yesterday on HBO for Obama.


4. Big Love is back on and I'm really excited.


5. I still have not bought anything but groceries, yeah me. Well, I did buy a $5 bouquet of tulips at Super Walmart.


6. Mr. Jetplane is off work today and I'm not, ugh.


Happy Monday to all.

Here's a lil Monday morning funny. Picture below is from Michelle at Oeil Photography. And congrats are in order for Michelle, she's pregnant!!
Please check her out. She's currently in Jacksonville and a mil wife.

Award Season is Upon Us...


And not just for the celebs, but also for lil Mrs. Jetplane. I received this awesome award from Mrs. Potts at Experiments in a Galley Kitchen. Thank you so much, I really, truly appreciate it.

The rules are as follows
1) Choose a minimum of 7 blogs that you find brilliant in content or design.

2) Show the 7 winners names and links on your blog, and leave a comment informing them that they were prized with "Honest Scrap." Well, there's no prize, but they can keep the nifty icon.

3) List at least 10 honest things about yourself.

I'll start with 10 honest things about myself....

1. I'm messy. I hate cleaning and picking up after myself. This bothers Mr. Jetplane to no end. Thank God, I didn't marry someone as messy as me.

2. I talk to my dog like he's a human. I'm one of those weird people. Milo is one of my best friends, we talk about all sorts of things. He's quite a good listener, he never seems to interrupt me.

3. I have a unhealthy love of Tostitino's party pizzas. It developed when I was young, lil Bro Jetplane and I used to split that pizza in half, 4 slices to me and 4 slices to him. Unfortunately now, I want to eat all 8 pieces, and do. Yes, I know it horribly fattening, and this is me not caring.
4. I never drank diet soda until last year. I was adamant that I hated diet soda, and actually that is still true. I will only drink the following diet sodas - Dt. DP and Cherry Coke Zero. I did this before the wedding and b/c Mr. Jetplane wanted diet soda in the house.
5. I'm addicted to Facebook. It is sorta unhealthy. I somewhat stalk people when I can look through other people's photos. I'm not their friend, but can look through their pictures when they tag one of my friends. Shhh... don't tell.

6. I don't have a relationship with my biological father. I haven't really had one since I was 14 or so. My parents split when I was 5. It may sound horrible to some, but I don't care to have a relationship with my biological father.

7. I've been in love 3 times. Once my senior year of high school with a guy, we'll call Mr. TooTall, he was a year older than me, we thought we'd be together forever. 2nd time was in college, we'll call him Mr. Baseball. We were best friends from freshman year to senior year, started "dating" sophomore year. We were somewhat boyfriend/girlfriend, it was very complicated. He changed my outlook on everything and really made me the person I am today. 3rd is Mr. Jetplane, he's a perfect example of a "rebound" relationship turning into something truly special.

8. I'm really nervous about having kids. The whole process freaks me out. I want to have kids, I really do, I think. But I'm so scared of physically giving birth to them and then taking care of them. I'm overwhelmed with 2 dogs sometimes, and people really frown upon putting kids in crates while you go to work, or so I'm told.

9. If I could, I would like to plan and do my wedding all over again. I did everything myself. Somethings went wrong, and I still think back and wish I could have made things better. Everyone tells me I'm crazy, but I can't help it. #1 thing, I never really liked my wedding dress, and I tried on atleast 100.

10. I like to sleep on the Mr.'s side of the bed. I prefer to fall asleep on that side. I miss sleeping next to him so much. When he was in flight school, he'd leave ridiculously early and every morning I'd roll over to his side of the bed and go back to sleep. I liked to put my face in his pillow, so I could smell him. He doesn't wear any cologne, but he has this manly yet clean scent to him.

Now, I'm suppose to give this award to 10 other people. I'm horrible at this. If you have already been awarded this, I apologize.

1. Ms. Nonsense - she makes me miss Indy so much. And I'm totally jealous of her closet.

2. d.a.r - I am so amazed at how strong she is. I hope when Mr. Jetplane is deployed, I can be as strong as her.

3. Becca - I adore her 2 blogs, and I credit her with getting me in touch with other mil wives. Check out her blog headers, she is very talented.

4. Some Like it Southern - I can't wait for Baby A to make an appearance.

5. Piper Jacquelyn - I've recently found her blog and really love it.

6. Sara - Another mil wife that I've recently met. Her hubby just got back from Iraq. Women like her, are truly and inspiration to me.

Life is so precious

Many of you know by now Kelly has delivered her little girl Harper, but unfortunately she has some serious health issues. My heart goes out to all of them. During a time of such happiness, there can be such sorrow at the same time. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers.


As you know, one of my best friends J had her lil girl on Monday night. Like Kelly, she too lost a lot of blood and her blood pressure dropped quite a bit. They tried to get her stabilized for quite some time but it wasn't working. Then they realized that her IV was pulled out and she hadn't been receiving any of the drugs. But after a couple of hours, they were able to get her stable. She and Baby C are happy and healthy, now but I know how scared they were for those few brief hours.


Please keep Kelly, Harper, and the whole family in your prayers.

A little dose of Pug does a body good...

Good Morning and Happy Friday to everyone out there in bloggy land. This has been a crazy week but a lot of exciting things have happened.

1. J had her baby, who will be affectionately referred to as Baby C.

2. All my television shows are back on, yeah for couch potatoes everywhere.

3. Work has been a little crazy, a lot of new projects which is good so I can make some more $$$.

4. Back to $$$, I haven't bought anything this week. Well other than my lunch all week, I've been bad. But I wanted to finish my book and I need to be out of the office to do that.

5. I finished the 1st Sookie Stackhouse book - Dead Until Dark. I really liked it and brought the 2nd book with me to work today.

6. I won an award which I have to blog about later today.

Well, I can't let Friday go by without giving you a little puggie love. There's nothing like a pug that loves to party...
Happy Friday, stay warm wherever you all are. It cold in P'cola today, I'm wearing a wool Ralph Lauren sweater, with a long sleeve tee under it, jeans (yeah Friday), knee high black boots, a hot pink pashmina, and my trusty North Face fleece. Yes, I still live in Florida, but it gets cold up here too.

Last but not least, with inauguration just around the corner, I couldn't help but do this. I know we don't all share the same political views, and I make it a point to not discuss them on here, but I had to do this.

Gather Round the Fire Kids, Mrs. Jetplane's got a story

Mr. Jetplane referenced his most embarrassing moment in his previous post. Well, it is truly so funny, it needed its own dedicated post.

So when I met Mr. Jetplane he was a manager of a credit union in Indy. During our courtship, he was promoted and took on another credit union in Pittsburgh. He would spend a week there once a month. He spent each visit at a hotel in downtown Pittsburgh and enjoyed the city very much.

Throughout this time in our relationship Mr. Jetplane began to sleep walk from time to time (he doesn't really do it anymore). And low and behold, one night (or very early morning) Mr. Jetplane woke up to the sound of a heavy door closing shut, he turned around to realize that he was outside of his hotel room and didn't have a key. But you see the funniest part of this story is, Mr. Jetplane sleeps naked. So he's naked, standing outside of his hotel room, in the hallway, and has no way to get into his room. He thinks for a second, and realizes that he's going to have to go to the front desk to get a room key....naked. Then he realizes that he's going to have to go down the elevator to get to the front desk... naked.

So he proceeds to the elevator, praying that no one is on this elevator. The doors open and its completely empty. He proceeds to ride the elevator down to the the main lobby and the doors open to an empty 1st floor. He then proceeds to walk the hallway to the lobby, remembering that there was a housekeeping room around the corner. He prayed that the door was unlocked. He got there, turned the handle, and it was unlocked. He grabbed a towel, put it on, and ran to the first desk to get his key.

The front desk attendant about jumped out of their skin, he had scared them but he gave him a new room key and Mr. Jetplane proceeded back to his room. And this time - double locked the door.

I keep reminding him, that the hotel had to have cameras and I would die if he appears on some TV show someday.

He called me at work the following day, and I laughed so hard that I couldn't stop for nearly an hour. Its totally ridiculous.

Love u Mr. Jetplane.

Mr. Jetplane coming at ya...

Picture of Mr. Jetplane and my Maid of Honor Dr. W (yes she's really a Dr.)

Well hell has most definitely froze over, Mr. Jetplane has entered into the blogging world. You have asked, and I have talked him into answering. I sent him the questions via email, and I was on the phone when he opened the email.

He was like "What are these questions? Why do people want to know about me?" Well he's answered them, in his own unique, sarcastic way. And they are as follows...

What went through Mr. Jetplane's mind when he first saw you on your wedding day? Wow, this is actually happening and she looked beautiful.

What did he want to be when he grew up when he was 8 years old?

Probably ruler of the free world, I don’t ever remember wanting to be one thing, always wanted to never limit my options.

Where does he see the 2 of you in 10 years?
Probably be in either DC or in a fighter squadron finishing up my second ops tour.

I'd love to more about Mr. Jetplane's whole pilot thing- is he in UPT right now? What kind of planes does he want to fly?
I am not in UPT, I finished my navigation training, IFF, and am now working on my CSO upgrade (Electronic warfare officer). We will be moving this summer Goldsboro NC to start my training on the F15E.

How long has he wanted to be a pilot?
Honestly I really never had the bug, I was just bored w/managing banks and wanted to do something else. I got accepted to the AF, then was able to be accepted to track fighters/bombers, and finished by being lucky enough to go the Strike Eagle.

What's his favorite plane?
A little experimental jobber that Mrs. Jetplane’s parents friend (mike) built. I was amazed that he build the whole thing himself in his basement. It was just fun flying it, no stress.

Does he have any career goals both near and distant?
To finally finish the RTU and get mission qualified. In the future we will have to see if I get bored again and where that will take me.

FYI - Mr. Jetplane entertains the idea of running for political office, which is interesting since we don't share a lot of the same political views.

What's his favorite memory of you?
Sitting at Applebee’s w/ a busted lip, and cracking jokes
(This is a somewhat of a long story that I'll have to tell another time. But we were on vacay at my parents' condo in Ft. Myers. 1st day of a week long vacay and his actions and my drunk ass contributed to me having a busted lip. And right after he's like, you're fine let's go to Applebee's.)
In his opinion, what's the weirdest thing the Mrs. does?
Her OCD about making sure she shut the garage door and making sure she unplugged her stuff. (I will turn around in our subdivision to make sure I close the garage door. I can't handle it if I don't know the door is down.)

What is your most embarrassing moment?
I'm not easily embarrassed I usually find it hilarious, but probably when I went for a sleep walk in a hotel in Pittsburgh, without my key and clothes.

(This story is hilarious, and I have to tell it at a later time. It still makes me laugh so hard I cry. He used to be in Pittsburgh 1 week out of the month when he was managing banks. Side note - Mr. prefers to sleep in the buff, which makes the story even funnier. Oh and the story includes him having to take a ride on a elevator to the front desk to get a room key.)

What do you that most gets on the Mrs. nerves?
I pick on her from time to time.

What does she do?
Her tendency to leave things where she takes them off and not pick them up again (ie Shoes, socks, purses, and ear rings)

What is your favorite color? Blue

When would you like to welcome a Baby Jet Plane to the world?
Whenever the Mrs. can handle it, but probably in a year or two!

What is his favorite place to visit?
Home, I know it’s a crappy answer, but when your gone as much as I am it’s nice to come home and see parents, friends, nephews, grandparents, cousins, and siblings. (not particularly in that order) Luckily for me they all live in my hometown.

This picture is on our honeymoon. We went snorkeling and spent a day on a small island.

This pic is from Destin. We met up with my friend Lou who got engaged the night before. We ate a fabulous dinner with them that lasted for a couple of hours, and had a great time. She's going to be getting married in ATL end of March.

My name is Mrs. Jetplane and I am an addict...

Ok last week sometime, I said I'm swearing off shopping, and I have. But I am going to some ridiculous withdrawals.

JCrew is having a sale and I looked through it all last night and filled a shopping cart, but didn't purchase. They have smalls available, they never have smalls... But I didn't do it, but the cart is still full if I want to when I get home.

I ate lunch at Moe's connected to the mall, and didn't even go in. No I didn't tempt myself by taking a look at BCBG and ABS sales rack.

I haven't went to Target in almost 2 weeks, I'm literally dying here.

I did go to Walmart on Sunday and grocery shopped but didn't but anything other than groceries - not even a magazine.

I'm going to start getting the shakes from my withdrawals from shopping...

Help Mrs. Jetplane get through this, I don't think I'm going to make it.

FYI - Mr. is suppose to answer his questions tonight, so you'll have them tomorrow.

And holy crap, I'm almost to 300 posts. That's madness, I can't believe I have people that care about the life and times of the Jetplanes. I'm getting around 150 new visitors a day. That craziness. Thank you all so much for the love, but I'm greedy so keep it coming...

I need to think of a giveaway... oh crap, I have to shop then right???

Is there a patch or something for this....

I don't have many pet peeves but....

I do have some and recently they have been aggravated....

1. If you leave a room, turn off the light, especially the bathroom.

2. If you have the last soda in a carton, throw out carton. I see it and can almost taste it, and for there to be none in there.... I find it hard to not want to punch you in the face.

3. Please don't invade my personal space. I don't like close talkers and people that feel they need to touch me when they are talking to me. Don't put your hand on my shoulder while you walk by and say "Hi", it totally freaks me out.

4. Please don't make me see your butt crack in public places. I know you feel a draft when your shirt rides up and pants fall down. I've been there, I know.

5. Please don't ask me if my pug is that dog from that movie. And don't say to me, oh I've seen those around a lot lately, its very trendy. I've had him for almost 6 years, I'm not being trendy. Look at him, his has gray hair, does he look like a freaking puppy.

6. And finally I have a serious issue with people wearing shoes and their toes stick out over the tops of them. For some reason it disturbs me, I don't know why but it does. Sorry, maybe I'm a weirdo, but it totally freaks me out. If your foot is hanging over your shoe, it might be too small. Case in point, these are 2 very well known celebrities at the Golden Globes wearing very expensive shoes and it grosses me out.

Sorry for the Debbie Downer moment. Bitching closed for this morning.

Happy Hump Day to you all...

Vista Print... what's your problem - UPDATE

I have a $14.95 charge from you that I didn't make and your 800 number is down. I need an explanation. I have NO way to contact you via email or another number.... I'm pissed and I need help...

Crisis has been averted...

Since I couldn't get a hold of anyone at Vista Print initially (for the first hour or so) I called MC and contested the charge. They removed it without issue, I guess they will do that rather easily for charges under $15.oo.

Then I just got a hold of Vista Print, I believe they are outsourcing their customer service to India, it was rather difficult to speak with her. And that says a lot, because 60% of the people I talk to on a daily basis, English is their 2nd or sometimes 3rd or 4th language. Anyway - I somehow had signed up for a rewards programs. What kind of rewards program do I have to pay for and not get any rewards... Well I'm removed from it and they are crediting my account.

Thanks for your help.

And to make matters even worse, MC lost/erased our entire online account information. I randomly found out about this card today because I was calling to handle that hot mess. What a day, back to work....

I got myself an M.R.S. degree...

Well that's what Mama Jetplane always referred to her education as, she never had the opportunity to go to college. She got pregnant with me and then married my "biological" father.

She was so proud of my achievements throughout high school and college, and was delighted that I got a great paying job right out of college. She was sad I moved away, but happy for my independence. I would never "need" to count on a man for survival, the way she felt she had to when married to my dad. I could and would provide for myself.

But I totally digress. The Jetplanes' are going back to college. Well, Mr. Jetplane is going back taking some online courses, and Mrs. Jetplane feels like she is too. I'm going to be there (in spirit) with me, step by step, reviewing all his papers, giving him advice, etc. We have our 1st paper due this week. He's totally stressed out and thinks he's taking on too much which he very well might be (EWO school, physical therapy, 2 grad school classes, and wife to tend to). I think he's going to drop one of the classes, I think its a good idea. He's going to keep his Ethics class, he says he can BS his way through that.... (yes, that's my hubby)

Why is Mr. Jetplane going back to college - well in order to make Major (which won't happen for a long ass time) he has to have a Masters degree.

Will Mrs. Jetplane go back to school... I'm not sure. I entertain that thought A LOT. I think about going and getting my MBA or even an M.A., but I don't think I could do it right now. We'll see what the future holds and I'll keep you updated on Mr. Jetplane.

Oh, and Mr. Jetplane has agreed to answer all your questions. So keep them coming... Fair warning... he's extremely sarcastic, as noted above, and I'll be posting him responses word for word.

XOXO

I don't care if Monday's Blue...

Tuesday's grey and Wednesday too....

But my Monday wasn't blue because my Monday was purple... take a look.
I decided I needed to brighten my Monday with some bright purple tights, black shift, knee high black riding boots, and a chunky black necklace. These tights definitely didn't go unnoticed at work, need I remind you I'm one of the few people under the age of 30 at my company. I don't really care.

Well else happened today.

I don't have any new info on Baby J, and its killing me. I can't wait to see the new lil one.

The Jetplanes aren't moving to NC in March...ugh... With Mr.'s knee he going to get rolled back a class or maybe 2, so won't be moving until maybe August. But that does mean that the Mr. will be back in P'cola mid March and have a some time off. So there is a silver lining.

Thank you all for the questions for Mr. Jetplane. I'm dropping the bomb on him today about the blog questions. So keep them coming.

Also, I should finish my 1st book of the Sookie Stackhouse series. Sorry, I've only been reading when I have a free lunch hour. I enjoy the first book, it most of what's happened in the tv show thus far. I'll give you a wrap up after I complete it.

Happy Monday night... I have a lot of tv watching ahead of me. My DVR is getting a workout.

Oh and one last thing. Take a look at this adorable picture of my friend's dog she posted on Facebook. How cute is he?

Mr. Jetplane getting in the game...


I'm taking a cue from Casey at Ever Changing Life of a Military Wife and getting Mr. Jetplane in the mix here on my lil blog here.

So I thought I would totally rip off her idea, and let you all ask Mr. Jetplane some questions. Now Mr. Jetplane doesn't read my blog and doesn't quite get the whole mystic of the blogging world. But I'm going to pull him into it kicking and/or screaming I suppose.

So is there anything that you want to know about the Mr? No question too small, to weird, but we'll see what he's willing to answer.

You're Golden...

Milo and I are chilling on the couch and watching the Globes. I love award shows unfortunately Milo isn't that in to it, he's snoring some logs right now. Here are some of my thoughts thus far.

1. I want to look like Eva Mendes
2. Kate Winslet is amazingly beautiful.
3. J. Lo looks like she's trying a little too hard
4. I guess I need to see Slumdog Millionaire
5. John Adams was great, I need to watch it again. I don't think I saw all the episodes.
6. Yeah Sookie Stackhouse won....
7. Drew Barrymore is looking hot and I'm really excited about Grey Gardens.

Today Baby J comes

Today one of my best girl friends J is getting induced. I am so incredibly happy for her and her hubby who have been together since we were sophomores in college.


I never had the luxury of having sisters, but I feel I have them after joining a sorority my freshman year of college. J and I lived together junior and senior year of college, and have loved her "now" hubby for as long as I have known him. He will be an amazing father and I couldn't be happier for the two of them.


Its times like these I wish I lived closer to my friends. I miss them terribly and I wish I could within driving distance for all these living changing times.


Love you J.

Here is J, Me, and K at my wedding. We're sitting outside on the patio/lounge area. We were all roomies junior and senior yr of college.





Here is J putting lip gloss on the flower girl at my wedding. She was still in her first trimester and have just told us all she was preggers.

These last pics are from J's week long girls bash at a villa in Acapulco before her wedding. It was one of the best weeks ever.

Our Love is Better than Chocolate


Today is the weekend, and of course these are the hard days when I really miss Mr. Jetplane. These are the days that we hung out together and did meaningless tasks. These are the days that we slept in, worked out, walked the dogs, made lunch, went to the movies, went to Best Buy, rode around on the motor cycle, cleaned the house, etc. etc.

These are the days that I really truly miss him. Not that I don't miss him every single day, because I do, but these are the days that I'm alone to really be with my thoughts.

Our house is empty without him and Charlie. We rent a 4 bedroom house and with just Milo and I, there have been days perhaps a week or so that I haven't even been in the other 3 bedrooms (office, guest bedroom, workout/excess wedding related storage).

I know I need to keep in all in perspective, he's just in Texas (not Iraq) and for that I'm forever grateful, but that doesn't put him here with me today.

I wish here was here so he could help me put the Christmas decorations back up in the attic, cut down the dead flowers in the yard, go with me to the pug meetup at the dog park, go to yoga together, go get some subway, and just hang out. But he can't be here so Milo and I will make do.

We're going to do some laundry, go to our pug meetup, go to the grocery store, clean up the house, and hopefully go on a long walk (if it doesn't rain).

Miss you Mr. Jetplane, can't wait to see you.

My Pug Friday is Back

Sorry I missed last week, but its Friday again (thank God) and therefore we need some puggie love.

I don't know about anyone else, but this week has been long and next week proves to be really, really crazy.

Milo is very happy that the weekend is almost upon us. Eventhough this lil face doesn't look too happy here. Happy Friday!
xoxo

In Love with Love

Now that the Jetplanes' move to NC is in my sights (even though it could get pushed back due to his knee surgery), I am still day dreaming about our new home, my new office, our new life, and us getting to be a real husband and wife that actually get to live together in the same house no less.

One other piece of artwork that has to go into my home office is this. I adore MadeByGirl and can't wait to have my own space to decorate a little more girly than I would the rest of our house.


Please take a look at her website, etsy, and blog. I know I made a promise to not buy anything until next month, and I'm sticking to it. This is on the list of must have's.

Side note - I did get a box from VS in the mail last night, but those things were bought with a gift card. I got a cute dress that I'll post later this weekend. I'm not sure if I want to keep it or not.

Don't tell Mr. Jetplane...

But I am in love with another man and that man is Eddie Ross.

He first stole my heart on Top Design and continues to make me love him daily on his blog. He is amazingly creative and its always on a budget. I wish I was in ATL this weekend to meet up with him and do some shopping at the local flea markets.

Make sure to check out his blog for decorating inspiration and wonderful how to tips like this tray.



Drinks anyone?

Fitting it all into one...

I have a lot of lil things say so I'm making them all fit into 1 bloated post.

1. Mama Jetplane visited her doctor on Tuesday and all looks good. They have started the hormone regimen and now are awaiting her bone analysis and her BRAC analysis. She also continues to get injections into her spacers that stretch out the skin for her future reconstructive surgery.

2. Mr. Jetplane is doing well after surgery. He had his follow up visit with his ortho surgeon today and he's looking good. He has ALOT of physical therapy but has already started.

3. I am so excited television is back - GG, Nip Tuck, 90210, One Tree Hill, Grey's... Yeah!

4. My friend J, who is a former college roomie, sorority sis, and bridesmaid is getting induced on Sunday. She has wanted and felt like she would have the baby on 1/11, she might just be right. Can't wait to see her lil girl. Its crazy that my friends are starting to have babies. We are getting old... almost 30 (yikes!)

5. I'm taking inspiration from Preppy Nonsense... I have to stop buying stuff. I've spent alot of money in the past month or so.

6. That being said here's my BCBG dress I just bought during my lunch hour this week. I love the collar. And I also ordered this and it should be on my door step when I get home tonight. Amazon had quite a deal, too bad I already bought the first book, but it saved me a lot of money. I have to read all the books now.

But after this, I'm not buying anything more this month that I don't "need".

Mrs. Jetplane is wanting....

These lovely lil gems....


HWTM featured a Warhol theme cocktail party and showed these today from CB2. They are only $1.50 a piece. I'm madly in love with Andy Warhol and have been since high school. I was seriously into the whole beatnik scene in high school and actually did my entire research project in high school on how Jim Carroll was the last American Beatnik. (He is the author of Basketball Diaries and Forced Entries). I was a very deep lil cheerleader girl, with her love of poetry, punk rock, and all. Needless to say, this is what developed my love of Andy Warhol - his quotes, life, artwork, etc. I actually had posters on my walls in high school and college that had these quotes on them.


So you now ask yourselves... Mrs. Jetplane what are you planning on doing with this lil plastic plates? Are you really going to be serving people off them at dinner parties?


Well simple answer - No!


I'm going to use them in my new home office when we move to NC. I could display them, hang them (some how), use to snack on, put my thumb tacks and paperclips in, who knows. But I love them and have to have them.

I have a lot of ideas for my new home office. I think if I have to work from home, I don't want to feel like it. I want to be transported to somewhere else, so I stay focused, relaxed, and some what happy to be working (from home).

More Pottery Barn Inspiration

I had you take a peek at the buffet that I am interested in so I thought I've give you a look at something else I've been kicking around.



I have a love of interesting artwork, but unfortunately I have no funds for it. And seeing how we're still renting at the moment, I'm concerned about buying too much and it not working in our future home.


The Jetplanes style modern classic, well at least that's what I called it. Its not overly feminine, minimal flowers, dark woods, etc. I take a lot of inspiration from Pottery Barn.


Case in point this:




Okay, this is just inspiration. I love that this piece is made of wood (or atleast looks like it is). However, I'm not loving the colors, its a little too country for me but the concept I love. So instead of the painted distressed wood, I'm thinking staining the wood in different light to dark stains.


Now you're thinking.... Mrs. Jetplane how are you going to accomplish this? Well, enter Mr. Jetplane. He has passed his certification and can use the carpentry shop on base in Randolph and since he's totally bored out there I'm going to ask him to make this for us. **He has no idea right now...


But on base he has used of every single carpentry tool you could think of and he desperately wants to start making stuff, so what I better first project, right? And its definitely a lot cheaper than the $399 it would cost us to buy it from Pottery Barn.

Mrs. Jetplane+bored lunch hour+ BCBG sale = $$ down the drain

I think the title is self explanatory. I have been eyeing a dress for quite some time and I love it. I really wanted a 4 but they only had a 6 left, but I think if I wear a bra with it, it will be okay. Its not huge on me, but a 4 would have been best. I can rationalize anything.

Picture to follow tonight when I get home.

I was good I wanted 2 dresses, and settled for one. I needed a dress for Chicago, right?

Here's hoping Mrs. Jetplane's commission check is good next week... I've been spending money like its my job lately. The shopping is ceasing right now, so why is Rue La La having a Marc Jacobs sale tomorrow.... ugh..

Sweet Home Chicago...

Well, its not my home city but its close enough...

I booked my tickets today for February to head back to Chicago for a weekend of fun and a little craziness.

One of my best friends Lou (nickname to protect the innocent) is getting married in ATL very soon (yeah!) and her shower and bach party are going to be in Chicago. She from there but now living with her soon to be hubby in ATL. I get to see her and all our friends that I haven't seen since my wedding. (double YEAH!)

Also, my friend J is having her lil girl this month (hopefully in the next week) and I get to stay with her and see her new lil baby J. Oh I am so excited.

I leave in exactly 30 days. I can't wait.

Mrs. Jetplane is still cooking

This weekend I tried another new recipe, Spicy Orange Garlic Shrimp from Pioneer Woman. OMG I just found her website last week and I'm totally loving it. Her original recipe can be found here. I admit I did alter it a little bit because I wanted more shrimp, and Mrs. Jetplane doesn't like food that is really spicy so I tried to reduce the spice a little bit, but no worries it was still spicy.



(Frozen) Raw Shrimp I bought the peeled and deveined bag (41-50 per bag)


Good quality Orange Juice 1 1/3 cup (Simply Orange is the only OJ the Jetplanes' drink - NO pulp)

3 Cloves of Garlic - diced


3 Tablespoons Salted Butter

Ground Cayenne Pepper 1/2 tsp



Old Bay Seasoning 1 tsp


1. Defrost the shrimp - put in a strainer and run under cold water until thawed fully.

2. Then place the shrimp on a paper towel
3. Combine OJ, garlic, and spices together - stir



4. Melt 2 Tbsp in a pan on High heat, once melted pop in the shrimp.


5. Cook the shrimp, it shouldn't take too long. Use tongs to flip the shrimp its easier.


6. Remove shrimp and keep the pan on High. Allow pan to smoke slightly then all the OJ mixture to the pan and stir.


7. Add final tbsp of butter and stir, this should create a thicker sauce.


8. Combine the shrimp to the pan with the sauce and stir.




My alterations to the recipe were more shrimp and OJ. So my sauce was not thick as hers but I'm totally cool with that.


This was totally delicious and I loved it. I know Mr. Jetplane will adore it and will want it hot.

Hope you to this and enjoy it.


XOXO
