It's about love, it's about compassion, it's about kindness, and faith. It has nothing to do with luck. You get what you give…

So give good.

I'm a Crafty Fool

I've been whining lately about this being the second year that we won't be able to have a Christmas tree. Don't get me wrong, I'd rather have E home than have a Christmas tree anytime! It's just one of those nice family things that would be nice to do... someday. In true Army wife fashion, however, I adapted and overcame. I decided to make my own darn Christmas tree, ha! I watched my new favorite show yesterday (Martha Stewart) and saw these. Mine isn't as pretty as those, but it's good enough for me :)

I also made this wreath-- I found this idea on Lost in Transition, and had to make one of my own!

The colors are kind of wild and there is one bare spot on it, but I love it anyway.
E had the flu last week and passed it on to me this week. I still feel puny, but a lot better than I have been.
I got my hair cut today and I love it! Tomorrow E and I are going to Tombstone again and then out to dinner with another couple.
The movers are coming on Tuesday, E graduates the MICCC on Wednesday, and we'll be Fort Hood bound on Friday.
I'm already exhausted just thinking about it all....

My Life, from {Army} Brat to Wife


  1. I absolutely LOVE that wreath! I kind of feel your pain because we are able to decorate this year, but not till late in the season. So I am so jealous of people putting up their trees!

  2. I hope everything goes smoothly with the move!!

  3. That is a neat tree! & I lovvve that wreath! You are definitely crafty. :)

  4. Very creative tree and the wreath is beautiful!

    Good luck with everything you have to do, time will fly, I'm sure.

  5. they are both SO nice!
    sounds like a busy week; good luck with the move =]
