So THIS happened this weekend


He's okay. He and Charlie got into a lil fight on Friday night. He has a small cut under his mouth which then oozes onto his legs which he then proceed to lick constantly and then would have a hacking cough. So needless to say we needed him to not touch...hence the poor lil guy was in a cone. He's out of it right now and very happy about that.
Just another weekend round here...

Pug Friday

Hello All and Happy Pug Friday to each and every one of you. We can thank Pinterest and a lovely blogger for the heads up on today's Pug Friday.
Have a great Friday and a wonderful weekend. Our guest bathroom is 90% done (except I don't think I like the paint color I let Mr pick out) so there are no house projects this weekend!! JOY!

Let it snow...

You may have heard last week the Northwest got one heck of a snowday. At our house we probably got 10" in under 12 hours. This is midway thru the snowstorm. I emailed the picture to Mr. Jetplane who was enjoying his time in Vegas for work last week. It was great that we got some snow because our ski resorts hurting. And in an ironic twist we went on our squadron ski trip just days before the great snow.
Here's the view from our driveway, not bad huh? This resort got over 24" of new snow in 24 hours 3 days after we leave. Yeah I know....painful right?
No fear we still had a great time. Here we are warming up and nursing our bruises. Well my bruises Mr. Jetplane is a pro at snowboarding.
This is the bunny hill I spent most of the time on.
There is Mr. Jetplane getting ready to get on the big ski lift.
Mr. Jetplane headed up the Squadron Ski Weekend, so we had to live in the big house and organized the party the first night. We had a great house. Here are a couple of shots from the main floor. It was a 3 level house. The lowest level had 3 more bedrooms, bathrooms, game room and media room.
Here is where we enjoyed watching all the playoff games. Yes we definitely need ones of these in our forever home...which with the Air Force probably isn't going to happen for a very long time :(
But all in all it was a wonderful weekend getaway, light snow and all. Its wonderful to get to take these quick getaways together, especially with how much time these guys work. We're one big ole family and its great to enjoy some down time together.

Pug Friday - Its been 1 of those weeks

Well yes, that's exactly how I'm feeling right about now. I've been sick the majority of this week thanks to Mr. Jetplane...who kindly flew out to Vegas for work on Monday and left his sickness dormant in the house until Tuesday night. Oh and let's not forget the 10+ inches of snow I got at my house on Wednesday. Its been quite a week :)-

I hope to share with you the fun we had on our squadron ski trip last weekend and the wonderful house we stayed in.

Have a great weekend.

2011 is gone...




Obviously this is a late post, considering we're well in 2012 now. But I feel like it needs to be acknowledged.



2011

What a year it was.



It was challenging on so many levels. We were challenged and tested, and I'm proud to say we came out on the other side stronger.


2011... I sent the love of my life off to war for the 1st time. I'm sad to say that its probably not going to be the last. This is the picture a took when I came home the night he left. It was freezing out there on the flight line. I have never felt so much pride and sadness at the same time. He was so unbelievably strong and I was a total mess.



But we made it through 7 months. He went 7 months without a day off and without a decent meal or shower. And then he came back to me.





And it was wonderful. He is more than my husband. He is truly my best friend in the whole, wide world. And I truly felt like I was missing half of myself each and every day he was gone.


But we got through it and I think we now have a deeper love, trust, and understanding of each other.


2011 kicked our asses that's for sure, but we came out on top.


Here's to a great 2012...


We can't wait to see what it has in store for us....

Pug Friday


Hello there, its me the girl that fell off the face of the Earth. I promise I'm still here, just life gets in the way of the blog sometimes.



The Jetplanes had a wonderful holiday back home in Illinois. It was great getting to visit with family and friends, and we ate way way way too much food....like gross amounts of food. Like I'm sick just thinking about it now.




Anyway...I also have to admit that I have done what I swore I would not do...I joined Pinterest. Welcome to the newest time suck in my life. And yes I'm totally obsessed with bathrooms right now. But that's to Pinterest I also found this lil gem for Pug Friday.

Have a great weekend and Happy Pug Friday!
