Kisses, Pad Thai & Elephant Rides.

 The past ten days have been filled with a lot of this



And lots of this


Taking goofy pictures like this



Wandering here





and here



And riding these



Tomorrow Chris is getting promoted and I am so excited that I get to be there for the promotion ceremony and pin his new ranks onto his uniform. But then, we have to say goodbye again and I'll be on my way back to the good 'ol US of A! It's been a sweet time being with Chris again but I sure am ready to get back home and prepare for his return. Being in a city like this makes me appreciate our country and all the comforts and freedoms that we have. I'm excited to share our Thailand adventures with you next week and energized to jump back into painting for my shop again!

Since I've been somewhat MIA from the blog world this week, I'm sure I've missed lots of updates from you guys. I'd love for you to leave a link to your favorite blog posts from the week-- either on your own blog or someone else's. Fill me in on what I missed! 

 What's new?! How did your week go? How are you doing, friends??

  15. Looks like you've been having such a special time with your man!!! Makes me so giddy seeing you two together - he will be home for good SO SOON!!

    I've basically just been sittin' around, being pregnant, and eating lots of junk food. The usual... Oh, and I've been putting the finishing touches on the nursery! In Monday's post, you can see the "L" you made for Lucia hung above her crib, and then the custom painting you made me is hung in a picture collage on the wall:
