It Finally Friday…

Lots to talk about – so be warned this post may be long!! Bahahaha…

Fist of all I am VERY VERY VERY proud to report that I DID NOT tell hubby what his Valentine’s Day gift was!!! Whoooo Hoooo!!! As a matter of fact – we didn’t even open gifts till almost 9 PM and I still was able to hold out!!! I am very proud of me to say the least!

For those of you who asked what did I get hubby for Valentine’s Day – well there was the tree stand that really isn’t a tree stand that he has been lusting over for months! It is called the “Ambush Tree Saddle” and to quote my hubby: “It is the shizzle!”

It is made by Trophy Line right here in GA – imagine that! And I dealt with this awesome person named Tyler! I cannot even tell you how amazing the customer service was!!! While the item was a bit pricey, I didn’t mind it so much because the customer service was soooo awesome!!! (Now let me go ahead and clarify – according to my hubby this tree stand cost NO more than any other tree stand but is hands down a 1000 times better!!!) So if your significant other is into hunting and you want to get him a bomb diggity gift…. I would recommend the “Ambush Tree Saddle” and make sure you tell Tyler “Hi!” from me!

Now on to another funny thing that happened yesterday! I received my March/April Issue of “Memory Makers”. (I love this scrapbooking magazine and I am very fortunate that my in-laws are so awesome to give me a subscription to it every year!!!).

Well in this months issue there is a short five-question quiz about scrapbooking tools! Now you all know that I tease that I am a TOOL JUNKIE! Well according to this months quiz – it isn’t a joke!!! Bahahahaha….

Yep there were five short questions and the answers ranged in being worth 1 to 3 points. So I took the quiz and the highest score you could have was 15…. I got a 14!!! So what does that mean…. Well according to this magazine when it comes to Scrapbooking tools – I am a “GOT TO HAVE IT” girl! (When I told my husband this he replied: “Well I could have told you that with out you having to take a quiz!” LOL)

But – that came back to bite him in the end…

See we are in the process (and yes let me tell you it is a WE thing) of submitting our promotion packet with the Army. The board meets next months (so cross your fingers and say a prayer), but one of the things you have to have in your packet is a current DA photo of you in your dress greens with all your awards… Now get this… and I KID YOU NOT – at the promotion board – they actually blow your photo up and make sure that one - you have on all the ribbons that represent all the medals that you are suppose to have and none that you are not. And two that they are all properly aligned (.25 of an inch apart or what ever) and that you have put all the accouchements on the medals!!! (How crazy is that!!!)

(this is just an example of some of the ribbons you can be awards)

So here we were last night trying to make sure all these ribbons were correct on the rack according to our awards statement… and then on top of these small little ribbons you actually have to put these other things - stars, M's, oak clusters that I SWEAR are just tiny brass brads…

Well hubby was having a hard time aliening his brads on his ribbons… so I was like – would you like for me to show you an easier way?!?!? Sure he replied… so off to my scrapbooking room I went. I came back with a paper pierce, a small pair of needle nose pliers and a precision tip cement glue.

Let me tell you I had those ribbon fixed up ricky tick! “To which my hubby replied – Wow, it is about time all those scrapbooking tools came to good use for me!!!!”


Hope you have a great weekend!

Until Next Time!
