I ♥ Faces

This weeks theme is FEET... pretty far from FACES but still fun. When I first heard of this one, I thought,.. hmm I dont think I have many feet pics unless my camera dropped.. but in looking turns out I have more feet fetish pics then I thought LOL.

This one was my favorite when we went on our Disney Cruise. I am a member of a website dedicated to Disney vacation travel where we write trip reports. In most trip reports its an unwritten rule that everyone takes pics in a hammock of your feet. LOL

So here is this weeks entry. Self portrait LOL, taken on Disney's Private Island, Castaway Cay!

Totally Radical 80's Party

Went to a party for a coworker's husband and it was 80's themed. We had such a blast. The whole time driving we felt like retards but once we got around others that were dressed alike it was all good! Here's a few pics to laugh WITH us not AT us lol

He didnt want to dress up

ahhh this took me back in the day

The $2 shoes got so many compliments (thanks salvation army LOL)

This chick won for best costume LOL
*thinking of doing theme parties more often.... its so much fun!, Roaring 20's, 70's disco nights etc*

Journal Jar Time

Todays Question: Do you remember your family getting a new piece of furniture, a new car or something similar when you were a child?

1st thing I thought of is when my dad got his cadillac. (ya it was so pimp, white stretch cadi with red velvet interior.. told ya straigh P-I-M-P) I was bowling at the time maybe 8 or 9? (we lived in GA at the time in the back woods nothing to do and to play outside in that heat and humitity was a no go LOL. So out mom and I came from the bowling alley and see my dad, he tells us he got a new car and were like WHAT? We walk over to it and my mom is starting to talk loudly in spanish to him LOL im sure it was all loving words LMAO ya right!

We get in and he shows us some of the wowable points. Electric everything, this was back in the 80's so most things were still hand crank windows, locks etc. Then the thing that stands out most to me is the radio. It had the scan button, and my dad said watch this, it comes with magic powers... and when he waved his hand in front of the radio ever so many seconds the radio changed, I was mistafied LOL Thought that was the coolest shit around. So you know I had kids and they were old enough I tried the magic powers they too thought it was cool. Thanks for teaching me the trick dad!

God Bless our Hero

This week is Patriotic Theme, and being the Marine Corps family we are the homecomings to me are always the most patriotic feeling. We have been through 4 deployments. My husband has been gone anywhere from 6months -9months at a time away from home, his sons, and I. He left for OIF #1 when our youngest was 6months old, and the last deployment he was 6. Its a hard life but we make the most of our time together. Here is our last deployment homecoming 2008

We always make signs usually its a sheet I let the boys paint to welcome home daddy, but this time I found online a service that was giving out free professional signs for those service members coming home

I always mark up the back of the car, my hubby HATES this cuz it dirty's the car LOL but I think he secretly loved the attention he gets from it.. and he should he deserves it!

I see buses this is when all the waiting families get excited and kids get out of the jumpers, and people get their signs up and ready so that our hero's can find us.

Off those buses fall out Marines... lots and lots of Marines.. and the bad thing is they all look alike LOL. We have a tradition of signs every deployment, and each deploy it gets harder and harder to come up with something whitier then the last LOL.

This year we had a Disney Cruise planned so it was easier thinking of a funny saying. But we spot him through all the same color clothing, yup its him

More importantly the boys see him

And we are together again as a family... at least until the Marine Corps sends him away again.
