FL work trip

I was in Jacksonville and Pensacola last week for work. On Tuesday, after my visit to the Naval Air Station, one of the other employees of the Arora Group, my new friend Beth, took me down to St. Augustine. It was so much fun- sunny day, great stores, great company. I found a martini place right next to a B&B, so that will be a weekend destination for Kelly and I in the near future!

On Wednesday, I had the 350+ drive on the I-10 from Jacksonville to Pensacola. It wasn't as bad as I thought- I found a Joann's and a scrapbook store in Tallahassee, so that made it more worth the trip.

The weather was fine until Thursday. I woke to horrible downpours- I thought I was going to get into an accident on the way to the Naval Hospital in Pensacola. The TV was on where I was, and they kept showing this twister that had hit- I didn't realize it hit so close to where I was!

Here are some pictures of the tornado damage I took on the way to lunch:

I was GLAD to get home Friday!!

Brownie Troop 159- USO Field Trip

Through the USO, Kyra's Brownie Troop had a field trip to BWI. The girls gave boxes of Girl Scout cookies to soldiers leaving the US. I wasn't able to make it, but Kelly took LOTS of pictures. I hope the girls got a sense of what these brave men and women do for us.

Kyra and Justine running to give out more cookies:

One soldier wanted a picture with all the of the girls:

My favorite picture of all:

Girls trip to ATLANTA!

Christine and I took off Friday night, met Maureen in baggage claim and hooked up with Angie. We hit the town, shopped, talked, and reunited. What we didn't do was sleep, but what the heck- we had fun!!

Getting ready to go out.....
