    Allie & Ryan

Sunday, August 1, 2010


So Friday I picked up Ryan after work since he stayed at the E Club after for some drinks with the guys. I woke up around 2am, went to get him, and come home. In that little mix we had one of those big stupid fights that really have no purpose in happening. We spent a looooong time talking it out after that, but we ended up watching the sunrise! We were up til 6:30am or so. Then we slept til 4:30pm! Oops.

Then we had an AMAZING dinner with our neighbors, both are chefs, and I am SITLL full. Plus they had champagne for me (it is a huge weakness), as well as white wine and red wine aplenty! We had a huge cheese plate, strawberries, a proscuitto ham stuffed peppers olives crackers plate, caeser salad with home made croutons and dressing, then braised short ribs that literally fell apart when you touched them, buttermilk truffle mashed potatoes, acorn squash with sugar and butter, and asparagus. YUM. Dessert we provided, Ryan's super secret recipe key lime pie. Needless to say we went home and thanks to the food coma we were in fell asleep around 11pm. No idea how that really worked out.

But since the hubby's car was still at the barracks guess who got to get up at 6:30am to drive him to the barracks for duty? Meeeee! So I schlupped him over there, went to Bolling and got gas in my pajamas, and now am blogging and debating going back to sleep for a bit. Laundry has to be done, grocery shopping, and a nail appointment at 1:30.

Plus, today we've been married for three months (: <3

Well, I will do this too I suppose... I borrowed this from Mrs S @ The Adventures of Mr Superman and Mrs S

A- My AIR CONDITIONER is set on: MED COOL in the dining room, so I have no idea what that is translated to. In the bedroom usually 66. We have window units so they need to be set cool to get the apartment that way!

B- My BEDROOM theme is: Just moved in chic. A white/red/blue/pink/green quilty sort of bedspread with ivory sheets. Wood floor, stark white walls. A few boxes still laying around. Persian red and blue rug. Light colored wood dressers. Nice huh?

C- The CAR in the driveway is: Well in the parking lot. Only mine at the moment, a champagne colored 97 Ford Taurus that just crossed 223,000 miles. Ryan's, when it isn't at the barracks, is a black Honda Accord (99 I believe)... and a manual. *groan*

D- My DESK looks: missing :( We have it on our list to get!

E- The EXACT time I wake up daily is: 6:20am

F- The FIRST thing I wash in the shower is: My face

G- My GARAGE is filled with: Nothing. We don't have one!

H- My HOUSE is: actually an apartment.

I- If you peeked INSIDE my bedroom you'd see: A bed that needs to be made after I crawl back into it for a bit and boxes!

J- My favorite JUICE is: Cranberry Pomegranate.

K- The best part of my KITCHEN is: a gas stove! And our wine pictures on the wall.

L- The LAST person who visited my home was: Rigoberto and Tanya, our neighbors.

M- The last piece of MAIL for me was: Bank Statement.

N- My NEIGHBORS think I'm: Young but obviously cool as they made us an amazing dinner!

O- If you OPENED my fridge you'd see: Not a lot. I am going shopping today... but condiments, a pitcher of tea, bacon, cheese, lunch meat, and one egg.

P- My last house PARTY was: not here! We haven't quite had a party yet. Just friends over hanging out.

Q- A QUICK meal I like to fix is: either pasta of some sort or chicken fried steak.

R- My favorite ROOM of the house is: our living room.

S- The SHAMPOO brand I use: Herbal Essences (drama clean!)

T- My largest TELEVISION is: in the living room.

U- UNDER my bed you will find: suitcases, a C Bag, and some other stuff that had nowhere else to go.

V- The last time I VACUUMED was: Monday.

W- Looking out my WINDOW I see: Crepe Myrtle trees, cars, a motorcycle, and our street.

X- I wish I had X-TRA: money. We're not doing badly but it would be nice to be able to buy a desk and some other big things we still need without hurting our careful budget.

Y- My YARD is: not technically in existence. Apartment! We have some grass in front and plants...

Z- ZZZZZZZ My bedtime is: Usually 10pm-11pm on a work night. Sometimes later.
