Life Lately

I know I have been MIA the last month or so, but my schedule is finally back to normal with time to sit down and blog.  I was the co-chair for a craft bazaar for a spouses organization.  I love craft fairs, so I decided back in May that I would volunteer to plan & organize this event.  The event was a HUGE hit and we had record crowds and raised a large chunk of money that will help provide scholarships for area students and adults.  As fun as it was to work with my co-chair in planning this event, I'm relieved it is behind me and I can focus on other things in my life!

Here are a few pictures of the polar bear (Sgt. Ted E. Bear) that was painted by a class of soldiers for the Hollyday Bazaar.  The only decent picture I got on my iPhone from the day of the event is Santa arriving.  I was running around crazy the rest of the time and didn't even get a picture of me and my co-chair on my phone. Although we did get one with Santa, I just don't have it yet.

Here is the history of why Ft. Rucker has a polar bear!   

Santa arriving by Fire Engine! 

Back in October we needed a break so we took a little trip for a few days. Our go-to spot since living in Alabama has been Florida, but we have never spent the money to stay at a place right on the beach.  We decided to splurge and rent a condo on the beach.  The view from our condo was fantastic. I could have spent a couple weeks there.  A full kitchen was included, so we only ventured out for breakfast one morning and an evening for dinner & walking along the boardwalk.   I spent my morning out on the patio with coffee and a book and the afternoon lounging on the beach.  Moving home to KS will be rough since there are no white sandy beaches 1.5 hours from home!  Here are a few pictures from our trip, mainly of me since B HATES pictures.

Breakfast at Donut Hole. The one place we always go when we are in Destin

Getting ready to head out for our date night on the boardwalk! 

Love the view from our room. I could have stayed here forever!  Good thing we are going again over Christmas break.  

One of the few pictures I got of B!

While out on our date at the boardwalk, a fishing boat had just come in and they were cleaning a little shark.  

At dinner, ordered a huge drink and it had a fun flashing light in it! 

Thanks for sticking with me on this post to at least catch up on two events from the past couple months.  See ya tomorrow for Weekend Wanderings!

Til' next time,
