WHAT A Week!

Let's just say...this week is WAY better than last week!

The fires are at 95% containment!
That is HUGE for us, so things are beginning to get back to normal 'round these parts.


On top of that...I won the BIGGEST Giveaway in blog history!
Well, at least the biggest I've ever seen. I can't wait to show off all my new book, purses, Target/Amazon/Anthro  purchases, and jewelry, all while drinking my weight in Starbucks.
Oooh Yeeeaaahh!

Between that and the new tablet the hubs talked me into getting, I feel like I won the lottery! I can't go in to too much detail, but we were given money for said tablet, and enough to get a new laptop sent to Afghanistan too! The generosity that I have come across during this deployment knows no bounds.

I wasn't planning on doing much for the 4th, since I had to work, but luckily I got off early and got to attend a good ol' fashion BBQ with some of my favorite people in Colorado!

Will told me to drink a beer for him, and he wanted pictorial proof.
{Thanks for letting me borrow your beer, Aimee! Haha}

Then, to complete my week, I got a package in the mail from my Blog GF!

Photobucket

Kelly, has inspired us all to take part in several projects, and they will all be featured this month!
I would tell you more about the Messy Project, but it's top secret, so that picture is all the teaser you are going to get. You will just have to check it out on the 18th!

Somehow, I got the weekend off, so I'm hoping that I don't even have to leave my house! I do need to catch some rays, but my backyard is about as far as I will go. After work today, I have a little surprise happening, but you will just have to wait and see on that one too. Maybe I'll post something to Facebook until I can actually reveal!

I hope that you all have a great weekend, and I'll catch you on Twitter!
