What a weekend... Part2

The boo and i have been planning this trip for quite some time
We went to a Bed and Breakfast
in a little town by our base
this town puts up TONS of christmas lights on their river walk
and plays christmas music through out the little town
and have cute little caroling groups singing in stores
and has a firework shows every saturday at 7
so we thought it was the perfect thing to do after Thanksgiving
Really this town is my christmas dream on steroids... 

the pup on the drive there
Ridiculous weather.. it rained ALL day
Cutest little christmas town
Rainy kisses :)
We bought nummy fudge, tried on ridiculous hats, smelt every candle in every store we went into, bought a ridiculous bright orange umbrella, and found a deal on an iphone case ($12) 

Reason #2 why i love being in the Army.. sometimes...
we went to pay for the bed and breakfast 
but they gave us the room for free 
because we were both military

its one of the best feelings in the world when people express their gratitude for you serving in the Army
(Thank you Thank you Arlene and Herman at Jefferson B&B)

what a weekend...part1

Reason #1 why i love being in the Army at times...
for every holiday we get four days off :)

Thanksgiving outfit:

The outfit:
Boots- Heartbreaker in MN
Socks/belt/Sweater dress: AE
((Love the dress.. but i was burning up a bit in it... 
too bad i wasn't in MN for thanksgiving this would have been PERFECT))
Watch: Michael Kors

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving
We spent it with a few of our friends 
and i loved that we went around the table and said what we were thankful for
i want to do that every year
if not every day :)

Where is the love?


Normally i never wear leggings as pants but 
this long cardigan thing made me feel like the bootay was covered.
We took the puppy to Hodges Garden to try and teach her how to walk with a leash
It ended with a minute of walking and ten minutes of mommy carrying her
Good start though!

Leggings/Cardigan/Boots : Heartbreaker
Love shirt: American Eagle

the best day of the year

As far as I'm concerned
Day light savings is THEE best day of the year
the gift of a magically extra hour

I was reading different web stories about day light savings 
(( because honestly i forgot about it))
and one of them said to take this extra hour and spend it on yourself

I plan on going to the gym and then hitting the sauna
a little self-improvement for my extra hour

What are you going to do?

Happy Sunday!
and Happy best day of the year :)

Awkward: Hooking some crazy russian shock machine up to my little thigh
Awkward: Swearing out loud at the physical therapy office when the shock machine super shocked me
Awkward: Going to three different stores to look for castor oil, wish i didn't have to stand and stare in the laxative isle and then ask if the store has it 
(Promise its for the oil face cleansing method)
Awkward: Trying to hide the new pup from the landlord because i haven't paid the pet deposit yet.. shhh

Awesome: Just had 30 days off of work (sad part = going back tomorrow)
Awesome: Just bought and started reading Bethany Frankels book, A Place of Yes
