It is Friday

Time to link up with Darci, Christina, April, and Natasha for another round of 5 on Friday! I cannot believe this week is over already. It went by really, really fast. I think it is because I have been running around everyday this week trying to get things done before the 14th because that's our "ten days till packing up mark". Oh wait...crap... today's the 17th and I still have things on the list. Damn that list. It keeps on getting longer every day.

This is not my list but one I found on Pinterest earlier this month that has been so helpful. Some of the tips I have no say in (Research movers? Nope. The Navy assigns them.) While others, I completely would have forgotten about (Preorder new checks with your new address, genius!)  Listotic, yall are lifesavers.

I had more then a couple of these to help power me through the week. How many exactly? Let's just say I paid the power bill at the location by my house and at one point I am pretty sure I could hear colors. 

Hubby is finally getting his own 'I Love Me Room' in the new house and he wants one of these to bring the whole 'guy room' vibe full circle. 

An I Love Me Room is like a man cave on military steroids. It will be filled with all of his plaques, pictures and work related goodies to be proudly displayed and awed over. I have to admit though, I kind of like these globes

I just downloaded Cleaving: A Story of Marriage, Meat and Obsession by Julie Powell today. I don't think this one is going to be as chipper as Julie & Julia was, but I am looking forward to a new book to crack open. 

I got bangs. My hair is so now. 

I wish I could say this weekend is just going to be us three sitting around the house and slowly de-cluttering but nope not us. We are hitting the road as soon as Hubby comes home and we are off on another road trip. Thankfully we are not going cross country this time, just three hours north to Washington DC. It will be our last time in that beautiful city for a while. We have a Birthday to celebrate, a Homecoming for a friend that has been in Japan the past three years and our own Bon Voyage party. Hopefully I'll remember to take pictures this time. Now we are off to begin our travels. Have a fantastic weekend everyone!
