Rain and Lightning

September 27, 2011

Texas has had record temps this year, with the worst drought since the 1800s.  I think we hit 75 straight days of 100+ degree temps.  Well, on Monday we had rain! We had a huge thunder and lightning storm, so much that the power went out for about 3 hours. We lasted for awhile in the dark, however found our oil lamp and hung out in the kitchen. The puppy even did good and just played with her toys, the thunder didn’t even bother her.  She didn’t even hesitate when going outside to do her business… she ran right out into the rain!  I took a picture of the oil lamp and caught a lightning burst in the background… it was kinda cool 🙂

So Matts idea of a surprise is buying himself new toys and claiming they are “for us”. Well he has been talking about buying a truck for a few weeks and the other day he got me all excited saying he had a big surprise for me…. All day I wait in anticipation. Finally I call him and said if you bought a truck just let me know. Sure enough, he traded the mustang in for a 2006 ford F150. Here’s the new addition to our car collection.


Haunted hotel

June 17, 2011

My friend Briana from home came to visit me this week. We decided to spend Thursday night in Austin, so she booked a room at the Driskill hotel. Only after she booked it did she find out it’s haunted. Look it up. You Tube it. We stayed in room 423 and apparently room 427 is haunted.

Ahhhh. Anyways. I survived spending the night in a haunted hotel, so I’ve knocked something off my bucket list. It wasn’t there to begin with, but now it’s been added. Btw scared the bajebus out of me because when we first left the room, there was a slow clapping noise coming from the haunted room direction and it stopped when we looked in it’s direction and then picked back up seconds later. And nobody was down either hall. Creeeeepy!

i think this link (below) is a wonderful example of how i feel… i am military and im in my own home, however i have still given up alot of freedoms and time with family and friends while serving stateside.  The lady who wrote this blog said everything needed.  its sad that this is how our military are treated… just saying
