Winston's New Adventure

Firstly, I'd like to apologize for not blogging nearly as much as I did when I first started this new adventure! However, I think that it mostly has to do with the fact that our lives really aren't that eventful here in good ole Del Rio now that we are settled in. We pretty much do the same things day after day, which I'm totally ok with, so I apologize for not wanting to bore you all with mundane daily updates ;)

Anyways, this past week was wonderful as I got out of the house a good bit and explored some new places off base! I went and had lunch with a new friend I've made here (yes you read that correct, I actually met another great spouse after weeks of worrying I never would) at a local place downtown called "The Brown Bag." It's no Montague's, my favorite tea shop in Colorado Springs, but it was quaint and the food was delicious! Not to mention the company was just as wonderful as we got to chat about being military spouses and how its all so new to us both! She also has a sweet puppy that I met and we are setting up a play-date for her and Winston sometime soon hopefully. Other than that I FINALLY got the pillows I ordered from Etsy for the couch and the rug that we ordered with a lovely gift card from my Aunt Kay and Uncle Jack. I'll post pictures of those tomorrow, promise!

Yesterday we went out on the lake (again, this is one of those weekly activities I hope I'm not boring everyone to death with). We had a great time tubing and just hanging out while enjoying the nice weather now that the awful 100 degree heat wave has finally broken. On an exciting note, Winston went tubing yesterday, yes tubing! Harrison took him out behind the boat and he actually loved it! Naturally I was very hesitant but once the boat got moving he seemed to really enjoy the wind in his fur and just chilling out on the water! Heres a photo I took of them from the boat...

He's a pro now!

Here are some more photos I took yesterday as well...

He's finally learned to like his life jacket.

Me and Winston sunbathing on the tube!
This week I'm going to play a pick up game with the wife of one of the Majors Mitchell works for. I'm super nervous as I haven't played in years, but I'm hoping it will be nice to get back to playing, get out of the house on a weekly basis, and meet someone new! I'm also planning on going to see my wonderful friend Elyssa who just moved out to Texas for a month or so to spend time with her family. We are meeting in San Antonio this weekend and I could not be more excited! Hope everyone had a lovely weekend :)


  1. This post makes me so happy! So glad you have found another spouse :) Also, Leo has the same life jacket in yellow and you really really make me want a boat!

  2. I'm waiting for the pictures of the pillows!! :) Miss you Fran!!
