Recently we've been on a mission for a new coffee table, one large enough to accommodate the many people we cram into our living room to watch Game Of Thrones every Sunday, sturdy enough to survive the many moves we make with the Navy, and affordable enough to fit in our budget.

While all the other dogs were barking, she was sitting still roping us in with her sad puppy eyes. She looked relatively healthy but her coat was dull and she looked tired. So we decided to adopt her, or I guess she decided to adopt us.Read More
As many of you may know, I've recently made the permanent move out of New England and down to south Texas, soon to be Florida for a short while, then off to somewhere else (we have no clue where) for a couple more years, then off to somewhere else.. again.
If you don't know me, let me fill you in. I'm a tiny bit of a control freak who feels the need to nest everywhere she goes. Not exactly the prime candidate for the military SO life, but sometimes you just meet someone who fills your other half and makes everything possible.
Embarking on our first big move in a couple weeks here's what i've learned so far..Read More
