Really Random + 2 Updates

This post is just straight up randomness. Sorry, I’m not sorry.

IMG_4598See my stomach? That, my friend, is a FOOD BABY. In fact, it’s a Chinese buffet food baby. Possibly the best kind of food baby.

IMG_4599A rock with a smiley face on it in Jimmy’s cup holder? That came from a friend at church. We have too much fun doing weird things. You probably don’t want to know that I sent a video of the rock “dancing” to music to that same friend. I need a life.

sciencecenterJimmy and I visited the Carnegie Science Center this weekend because it was the annual train weekend. Jimmy is really into trains, and I’m really into Jimmy. If he likes trains, I’ll make an effort to enjoy his hobby too ūüôā. We also walked aboard a submarine, which was super cool!

IMG_4625My dad is awesome. He went away on a business trip to New York and brought me back two very awesome gifts: maple syrup and blueberry pancake mix. Maybe he wants me to make pancakes for dinner soon? Maybe he just knows how much I love pancakes and maple syrup. Either way, he made my day.

Two Updates:

1. I still don’t have my truck back since the accident. It’s in the repair shop, so hopefully I will get it back this week.

Obligatory photo of my truck in its "golden days" lolz.

2. This is hard to admit, but I have been having some tummy troubles again since my stomach infection¬†this summer. The symptoms aren’t as severe as they were before, but I called my doctor and I’m going to get re-tested for the bacteria. I’m praying I don’t have the infection again because that was rough!

That is all of my randomness and updates for now.

Veterans Day

Veterans Day is a special day to me because many people in my immediate and extended family have served in different branches of the military.

In fact, both of my parents served in the United States Navy. That’s actually how they met!

My mom enlisted in the Navy in 1984 and served for over seven years as a yeoman. A yeoman is someone who does administrative work. My mom had to opportunity, through her service in the Navy, to travel to Portugal, Mississippi, Florida, New Orleans, upstate New York, and was stationed in Norfolk, Virginia.

I’m so thankful to my parents and everyone who has ever and will ever serve our country in the United States military!
