The Jetplanes are attending a semi formal on Saturday. I am wearing a black cocktail dress and I want to wear these heels. Lovely, yes?

Is it okay to wear open toed shoes, sans stockings, in February to an event...

Discuss amongst yourselves....

There you are...sorry I am been an MIA blogger the past couple of weeks, that was not my intention.

But it also wasn't my intention getting sick either. Today's post, unfortunately will be a random, I mean REAL random.

1. While sick I visited the Flight Doc on base. My doctor was quite a hottie and a former fighter pilot...it is not fun to talk about your bodily functions with a cute, young doctor, while dressed like homeless person with dirty hair, no makeup, and then realizing you aren't even wearing a bra...oh yeah...nice. Yes I left the house without a bra on, but in my defense, I was really sick and had on 2 shirts, a hoodie, yoga pants, a scarf, coat, and a hat...yeah homegirl was freezing her bootie off.

2. In about 30 days we will find out where we are moving to. The arrow is pointing to Idaho. Cue all the jealous now... I spent last night looking at houses for sale in Idaho.

3. I'm happy to report that I gave up online shopping for Lent and I haven't caved yet!!

4. This is currently on repeat on my computer and in my head....

5. The Jetplanes are going to a semi formal on Saturday. I'm recycling a black cocktail dress and sporting my Blue Bow Knock off Valentino shoes. Our squadron color is blue and I'm suppose to integrate that into my outfit. I'm worried I might not be dressed up enough, but oh well.

6. Also I've joined Formspring.me. You can ask me anything and everything you ever wanted...and do it anonymously if you so wish....

Happy Hump Day!

Pug Friday - Winter Olympics Edition

Is anyone else glued to the Olympics? Anyone find curling soooo addictive, even though you have NO IDEA what's going on? Hello Johnny Weir, anyone? Mr. Jetplane makes fun of me because I clap at the television when watching speed skating... he thinks I'm a little ridiculous oh well.

I love me some Olympics, what can I say. I'm so proud of our athletes and its great to see them succeed.

So in honor of the Winter Olympics I give you today's Pug Friday.

Also does anyone else just LOVE this commercial that they've been showing this past week. I'm a sap...I can't help it.

Happy Pug Friday!!

Romantical Weekend....not so much

So I wish I had a great and wonderful recap from our weekend in Charleston. Sadly I do not because Mr. Jetplane got sick and now so am I. I will give you more details as soon as I feel alittle bit better.

p.s. yes I know romantical isn't a word...but in our house it is.

Excuse Me....

As most of you now, if you've read this blog for any period of time, the Jetplanes recently moved to NC at the end of the summer. So far, we've really enjoyed it but something has been really bugging me lately and it came to a head yesterday with 2 situations.

You see, I, Mrs. Jetplane, like to pride myself on being a very self sufficient woman. I graduated college, moved to another state away from all my family and friends for a job out of college, lived in an unfamiliar city for several years, met and fell in love with Mr. Jetplane, moved to FL then NC, and have a job that (luckily) will allow me to work from home and follow Mr. Jetplane as he goes through his military career. I am 29 (almost 30...ugh) but will fully admit that I look very young for my age. But I'm not...I'm very strong willed, opinionated, and articulate when I want to speak my mind.

So this leads me to issues that I've had since we started the process of moving to NC. First it started off with our real estate agent, a nice woman, that REFUSED to EVER call me or email me back. She ONLY communicated with Mr. Jetplane. I would send her a detailed email with bullet points of everything we needed answers on. No RESPONSE. I would call her - leave her a detailed voice mail - NO RESPONSE. Mr. Jetplane calls....BAM problem solved.

We're looking for cars, for ME, I'm trading in my Jeep, I'm paying for the loan, its MY money... People don't even look at me when discussing the cars. People don't even look at me when discussing my income, credit score, etc. HELLO!!! Sitting right here!!

Yesterday I had to talk with the finance department at the car dealership where we purchased a vehicle at the end of 2009. There are some issues, because we are excepting a check from either the dealership or credit union for the overage paid on the loan. I have called and left 2 messages at the car dealership, no response. Mr. calls and gets to speak to someone and tells her to call me back yesterday. She did, and I let her know that I had left her 2 previous messages. She kept referring to the loan and car as HIS... I assured her that the loan, the car, the trade in...it was MINE not HIS. He called because I couldn't get you to call me back.

Again last night, I have been calling our pet sitter to confirm that we are still on for this weekend. I have left 2 messages on her cell phone and tried to email but I keep getting bounced backs. Mr. Jetplane calls and she calls him RIGHT BACK!!

OMG I'm really flipping out here. I get the whole MAN OF THE HOUSE crap, sure I may even use it on solicitors or telemarketing people, but I don't really buy into it. I am a strong woman that makes her own money, and I really wish I could get some respect around here. I'm feeling a little like Rodney Dangerfield over here.

Does anyone else experience this??

AHHH Hell Yeah!!

Its been a crazy ass time for the Jetplanes for the past couple of months. Between Mr's flight school, my mother's surgery, his family matters, my work, painting the house, tending to 2 crazy ass dogs....we need a lil time to ourselves.

And this weekend (and Monday since I'm taking it off) we're heading to CHARLESTON, SC!!!!

I don't know if I have been this excited in such a long time... We got good deal on a hotel in the Historic area and I've already booked a Valentine's Day brunch at Magnolias thanks to the help of Grits.
Can't wait!!!

Pug Friday - Superbowl Edition

Its a big weekend at the Jetplanes household. Colts in the Superbowl baby...Colts in the Superbowl.

Hopefully the bad weather holds off, the Jetplanes are hosting a Superbowl party. Turns out Mr. Jetplane invited his whole class over for the party, depending on the flight schedule for Monday morning, we might have quite a showing.

Happy Pug Friday everyone....

Thank you!

Thank you all for your kind words yesterday. Unfortunately we weren't triumphant in the election. With about 60% of the precincts in we were at 70%/30% and it looked good, really good, but we ended up losing by around 200 votes.

Its a sad day, for my family but I also think for our county. I won't go into my own personal opinions about the election, but I was alarmed and shocked by actions of some people. But that's politics right?

My step dad will continue to work for the people of our township in his current elected position as he's done since I was in high school. But I don't think he'll run again after this.

My heart just hurts for my parents, who really gave their all for this election and the people in our area. Its an unfortunate turn of events, but it is what it is.

Thank you again for all your love. You guys are the best!!!

Big Day!!

Today is primary election day and my Step Dad is running for Supervisor of Assessments for our county. The election will be decided today since the opposing party will not be running anyone.

I firmly believe my step dad has 5x more experience than the incumbent (because he does, resumes prove that) and is the best person to hold this position.

He and my mom have been working their butts off for the past few months, and I pray we are successful.

Any thoughts and/or prayers are greatly appreciated.

I'll keep you updated!!
