Hi everyone! Happy Friday! Anything fun planned for the long weekend?
This week has been such a blast having mom and nana here with us. As you may have guessed from his lack of appearances around here lately, the Pilot has been gone for work, so the timing for mom and nana’s trip ended up working out perfectly. TDYs (temporary duties) are no big deal, but at night it can get especially lonely. I was lucky to spend the week with such wonderful company <3
(A lil blurry, but the only one where we were almost all smiling, especially since it was past party animal ladybug’s bedtime)
The Pilot comes home today! Wearing what I call his GI Joe suit:
He’s been flying around in this thing, which transforms from a helicopter to airplane mid-air. Just typing that skyrocketed my heart rate as I started sweating profusely. Of course, he loves it.
Some faves from the week:
-TV and movie nights with mom and nana. Usually I’ll work at night -especially when the Pilot is gone to keep myself busy- but we rented movies, watched TV (I haven’t seen American Idol in forever and loved watching the finale shows this week!) and drank some red wine. It was lovely.
-This giant plant from Ikea. I love the brightness it brings into the den! Now let’s see if the dogs can leave it alone… (They haven’t seemed to notice it thus far)
-OB Noodle House. So glad mom and nana got to experience the best pho!
Also, their edamame is to die for. It’s hot, salty and garlicky. Perfect.
