So far, this month has been pretty uneventful and quiet and not much for me to blog about.
*Thankfully, I am almost completely back to normal and am moving around like my old self again.
*We went to the AF Birthday Ball this past weekend (yes, on the anniversary of the Navy birthday, don't ask) and I wore heels for the first time since our wedding. We sat with two of our friends who will be moving in about a month (sniff) so it was great to sit and talk with them. I wore this dress:
*Have started cooking again. As with every fall, I have once again proven my pumpkin obsession. So far this year, I have made pumpkin pie, pumpkin bread, pumpkin soup, and pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. Dinner tomorrow night will most likely be pumpkin pancakes with homemade cranberry butter.
*Hopefully this weekend we can go to our town's pumpkin festival. Can. Not. Wait.
*We booked our tickets for Thanksgiving Day weekend. We will be going to Manchester, UK. Nothing at all ironic about that. Still have to book a hotel though.
*Bought a 220V Crock Pot yesterday and I love it already. The one that TLS had previously was a 110V (American voltage) one so to use it over here I would have to run it on a transformer. For things like a mixer or a food processor it's not a big deal, but do leave a Crock Pot on a transformer for 6-9 hours would send our electric bill through the roof. TLS keeps asking me to make more Crock Pot dinners and I said I'd only do that if he bought me a 220V one. So he finally did. Ours came with a stoneware pot that can also be used on the stovetop or in the oven as a roaster. I love it.
*Have become addicted to Revenge. I want pretty much every single thing that Emily wears. I am a bit worried about the show's sustainability though. How many people could have possibly wronged Emily/Amanda's father to warrant more than one season?
*Have spent a lot of time (too much time) lately looking for the perfect holiday card. I want to do a photo card this year and have been having a hard time finding a good one. Everything I like is either too expensive, can't be shipped to APO addresses, or says Merry Christmas on it. (We don't celebrate Christmas and prefer to go with cards that say "Happy Holidays" instead.) What are some of your favorite places to get photo cards? Other than the obvious Snapfish, Shutterfly, Vistaprint, etc?
*In the unlikely event that someone reading this is actually able to get her hands on a bottle of this stuff, please, please, please, pretty please with a sugared cherry on top send me a bottle of it. Please.
