The past few weeks...

I thought that I would be better about blogging if I had a cute blog makeover... it didn't happen! Its been a couple of weeks since my last post and we have been pretty busy! James is in the Air Force Reserves, so he has to go to Little Rock one weekend a month for reserve duty. Two weekends ago we joined him. It was my first time being back on an Air Force base in 2 years, and I loved it! While James worked, Xander and I had a lot of fun learning our way around base. Little Rock AFB is huge! Since it was so hot out we didn't get to enjoy all of the amenities offered, but we did go to the pool. We spent most of our time shopping at the BX (kind of like a department store) and the Commissary (the grocery store). The commissary was awesome because it was the first "real" grocery store I have shopped at in a while. Those of us from NWA know that good ole Walmart is about the only place we can buy groceries and it is definetely not like the "normal" grocery stores I grew up with in GA. The commissary was HUGE and I found so many things I have not been able to buy at Walmart! I am definitely looking forward to going again once it gets a little cooler out. I am also very excited that Xander will grow up going to the base and he will get to experience military life (even if its only for a weekend a month), and I know he is going to love watching the airplanes take off when he is older! I wish I would have taken more pictures, but for some reason I only got my camera out one time!
 Last weekend was also very busy! Friday night our church had Friday Night Out (which they have two times a month) so we dropped Xander off and headed to a surpise party for one of our friends from church. We had a great time!

After the surprise party James and I went to see the final Harry Potter movie. I love Harry Potter! I started reading the books when they first came out almost 14 years ago!! The next day we had a sitter from the neighborhood come over after we put Xander to bed (he goes down about 7:30) and we went to the movies again! This time we saw Captain America. It was awesome!! We love going to the movies! Before we had Xander we literally went to the movies every weekend, now we only go if there is a really good movie playing. James loved comic books growing up, and I have enjoyed learning about all the characters he loved as a kid through the movies these past few years. I think Captain America is one of my favorites!  This weekend I am taking it easy. My Mom is coming to visit for a few days and she will be here tomorrow night! Hope you all have a great weekend!


  1. Hey Brittany! I had no idea you have a blog, too! (It's adorable, by the way!) So glad to have found it and excited to follow along! :)

  2. What a busy weekend! I don't know how long it has been since my husband and I went to movie.
