ATTN: Country Music Fans

Hey Ladies,
This week is just one of those weeks where there just isnt enough hours in the day!  Anyway while I was listening to internet radio at work I heard a song a liked by an artist I never heard of so I decided to further investigate.. His name is Tyler Toliver and he's an active duty Marine and I think his music is fantastic.  You can go to his chat page and listen to a bunch of his songs.  My favorites are "Welcome to the Weekend", "Live Our Dream", and "Country Girl" but I honestly enjoy all the songs on his playlist. Lemme know what you think!

Friday Fill In #27

Don't Forget to Head on over to Wife of a Sailor to link up!

What do you usually want to know about someone when meeting them for the first time?
Their name ha

Would you rather know everything about your spouse, or be regularly surprised?
Depends on the kind of surprise ha

If you could live in one city for the rest of your life, where would you live?
Probably where I live now, I have never lived anywhere else and I don't think that will change. Not because I'm afraid of moving or anything but because we have already bought a house and have a job here..but who knows, right about now I would not mind moving somewhere warm.

When you go out of town, what one material thing do you ALWAYS take?
Our iPad, I have the attention span of a 5 year old so I NEED it to keep me amused on planes.

Using no more than 10 nouns, and ONLY nouns, describe yourself.
Nail Polish
Ice Cream
Blonde Hair
Running Shoes
Flip flops

One Last Plea

I promise I won't have anymore posts like these (until later in the year for our next fundraising race) becasue I don't liek to bug people but here we go...

Our big race in Houston is only 10 days days away so here is your last chance to help us out with our fundraising.  We are running the Houston Marathon/ Half Marathon in honor of our friend who lost her battle with Cystic Fibrosis in May 2010. 

We partnered with the race's Run for a Reason campaign to raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.  We have raised $1,113.33 and are the 5th highest fundraiser.  The Cystic Fibrosis foundation has raised $18,273 of their $20,000 goal so please help us help them!

You can read our story behind fundraising for this race and our previous fundraising races(we do 1 per year, little slow on the 2010 one ha) here.

And you can donate here.

Your support is much appreciated :)

I promise I'll have a real post tomorrow

Flashback: Nerd Alert! Harry Potter World :)

IT WAS SO EFFFING COOOL!!!!!  It was kinda small but the details were redonk and it looked like you were literally in the movie.

the entrance

going into Hogsmeade

Hogwarts Express is on your right

No it didnt snow in Florida- it made to look that way

Regular and Frozen Butter Beer- seriously if I could keg this stuff in my house I would SO GOOD

there is a ride inside here

Hagrids house while in line for the Hippogriff ride

could only see it while on the ride hence the blurry picture

our souvenir

its pretty big- about the size of my hand!

Overall we had a great time here. My recommendation go on a Sunday or right as the park opens at 9am, way less crowded. When we were leaving that part of the park they were giving people time cards as  to when they could come back!

Flasback (a bit) November 2010- Florida, Shades of Green, Universal Studios and Wine!

Wow I got so caught up in the holidays that I forgot to share with you all our trip to Florida.  We went to spend Thanksgiving with the hubs' grandparents (both sets) and he got me a pass to Universal Studios and Harry Potter World(!!!!!!) for my birthday.  I was excited to see the grandparents and explore the parks. 

Captain America Diner heck ya!!!

the whole park was decorated for Christmas which was awesome

things that make me wanna vom

We ate at Bubba Gump


We spent two days at the parks and we stayed at Shades of Green for one night. The accommodations were great and I would recommended it to anyone!  For those of you who don't know you pay based on  your rank and you can also sponsor civilian families to join you.

On our way back to the grandparents house we stopped at an amazing winery called Keel and Curley.
We sampled all of their wines for $5 (which was taken off the amount of the wine we purchased) and had a great time. The staff was awesome and their wine is very fruity!

Stop back tomorrow to see the Harry Potter World post :)

Attention Milspouse Bloggie Runners!

Do you know if anyone has started a club for us?  Would anyone be interested in snagging a button that said something along the lines of this if I had one made? Or perhaps signing up for a race together?
Thoughts..comments anyone?
