Oh BOY, Do I Have A LOT To Tell You!


You are now talking to a Sergeant's Wife!
Woohoo! I know I'm a dork.
But first, let's start with National Margarita Day!!

A night filled with tequila and Dance Central fun.
It was impromptu and just the three of us {Buck is our pseudo son}, but it was the perfect celebration. Plus this makes TWO weekends in a row that I drank! That is a new record.

Due to the craziness of this night, we planned on having a lazy Saturday to make up for it.

Until...

Will came bounding up the stairs scaring the shit out of me to tell me that he GOT PROMOTED!!

The way the Army works, as an "Enlisted Soldier" you usually come out of Basic Training as an E-2 or 3(Private/PFC), and depending on what job you do, it can take quite some time to gain rank. Will, however, is what they call "high speed", so he has gone from PFC to SGT in LESS than three years. We weren't expecting this until at least summer, and one of his NCO's actually said that he has never seen someone get promoted in this "Secondary Zone". Especially someone that has a job that needs over 700 points to get promoted. #hardworkpaysoff

So this week, he got a slot for Warrior Leader Course (which can be hard to get before you have been promoted), he beat his own "Company High Physical Test score", and he got a much deserved promotion. To say I'm proud would be a gross understatement.

This called for a celebration at BJ's Brewhouse, and obviously, good friends, beer, and pizza is always the best way to celebrate ;)

Yep, you read that right.
That is our favorite pizza that tastes nothing like a pizza, but c'mon, you know it sounds awesome. Bacon makes everything better.

He makes SGT look GOOD, and he's MY Sergeant ;)

Will starts WLC next Friday, so this was our last weekend to spend together for awhile. Twenty-two days of straight classes are what is in store for him, but thankfully, he still gets to come home every night and I can take him lunch. Just part of the job!

I also wanted to remind you that wee have four shopping days until March 1st!
{Read about the Thrift Fashion Link Up here}
I know Whitney and a few others have told me that they've got things handled, but for the rest of you, I wanted to share this:



If you pin that, you will always have access to Thrift Shops everywhere!

"TheThriftShopper.Com is a One-Stop Web Destination for all of your Thrift Shopping Needs. Search for Thrift Store Listings in our National Charity Resale, Secondhand, and Consignment Shops Directory, Join our Online Thrifting Community, and Learn More about Thrift Shopping!"

And last, but most certainly not least...



















Okay, well now I am spent.
We wanted to make the most of this weekend, and we most certainly did.
Signing out, SGT MRS. Bogert!
