6. Kelsey at The Seattle Smith's has a cute blog (even though I think she was already tagged!)
7. Another "The Mrs." from Trying our Best (also a military wife!)

That was fun! Thanks again Jenn!

Last night I planned a nice little surprise for my hubby, Eric. Sometimes it's fun to just do random things for no "real reason", to keep the romance alive. *grin* I turned off all the lights, setup candles EVERYWHERE, made his favorite meal (pizza bread), and got pumpkin pie for dessert. You can read between the lines for the rest... ;)

Candles on the kitchen counter...

In the bedroom...

It was a very fun, relaxing, romantic night. Ahhh.

I went shopping this past weekend and found this shirt at Old Navy for $3!! I wasn't sure if I'd like it, but when I put it on today I fell in love! :) Haha.

Finally, I ordered this little pink fuzzy sweater for my puppy to wear mainly at the "Walk for the Cure" next weekend. But she loves pink just as much as I do, so I'm sure she'll wear it more than just once. *wink*

Happy Wednesday everyone!!
