Friday Randomness

This week my amazing friend Paula Kathlyn at The Patriotic Peacock is hosting a blog link-up party for all things crafty and creative. Personally, I never would have thought to put myself in that category. When I think of "crafty" people - especially bloggers - I think of the ones who can sew all their family's clothes out of pillowcases and curtains, or take random junkyard scraps and, using only spray paint and bandaids, turn it into the centerpiece of their home. Maybe that's a little extreme...but only a little, amiright?

Paula Kathlyn, however, includes all sort of creativity in this category, from sewing and repurposing to scrapbooking and cooking. So, I linked up with one of my favorite original JG recipes: Chicken Chili, always a huge hit.

Tonight, Gary Sinese and the Lt. Dan Band are going to be hosting a free concert on post. I've been wanting to see the Lt. Dan Band for months, and it looks like we won't be able to go.

Since Achilles is still in that first week after getting "done" and we have to keep him from licking his stitches, that pretty much excludes any activity that involves leaving the house for longer than 20 minutes.

So, I'm probably going to be sitting at home with SoldierMan and the pups, having a sort of mini-celebration here at the house. Why, you ask? Well, that's a post for another time. Or, once I get some news I'm waiting for, I'm going to share it with you. Even if that means a third post today. Which I hope it does.

And don't try to guess. Trust me, you won't be able to. :)
Having one of those days where I'm missing some specific friends. I literally do thank God for the internet. Seriously, a good gift from above.
The winner of The Emerald Tree giveaway was:

  1. I hope it means a third post today, too. You always keep people on the edge of their seats!

  2. I do not think of myself as particularly crafty either. Even though I tend to do a lot of crafty things. Weird, huh!

    Fingers-crossed for a 3rd post;)

  3. eeeeee!! I'm so excited! My email is jamiewly@yahoo.com
