He surprised me when he came home at Christmas, which is no small feat. Have any of you watched Operation Homecoming on TLC?? What do you think? The commercials make me cry... I don't think I could get through an entire episode. (Click the link to see a teeny tiny version of our homecoming moment.)
Matt will be heading to Afghanistan in January to participate in a pathfinder/recon mission. He VOLUNTEERED for this assignment because he said he didn't feel like he got enough done in Iraq. Part of me is extremely proud of him and the other part of me wants to slap the living shit out of him. (Sorry for the potty mouth, but sometimes there are no other words that fit.) So those of you who pray for our troops, please keep him (and my heart) on your lists.
Though this quote is for all of us, it is a reminder for some one special in my life who is going through a rough time. Hang in there... we'll get through these days together.
What is it about London designer Orla Kiely that we all love so much? Her use of simple, bold images makes me want to buy everything of hers I see. Thanks to Target for making her merch so accessible (and affordable!). I am currently sporting this bag as my summer catch-all thanks to an awesome deal I got from Swirl. It's pretty much perfect for me... coffee-themed, gigantic and orange. What would your prefect bag look like?
Even though it's Wednesday and not Tuesday (you didn't think I'd let you off the hook that easy, did you??) here is a tune I am LOVING right about now. If you don't already know Foster the People, do yourself a favor and check them out NOW!
