So many things have happened in the last several months while my blog was MIA (you can also catch up here) so this Five on Friday will be used for a quick catch up!
1. Flight Suit Friday
Rob graduated from API in October and had his Flight Suit Friday(the first day they get to wear their flight suits!) We had a great time celebrating at the O Club and he has been happily wearing his flight suit everyday to work since.
We went home for Christmas and New Years but spent Thanksgiving in Pensacola. I hosted Thanksgiving at our place for all of our friends who stayed in town and think I did pretty well for my first one. Let’s just say a double oven is totally on my must list for my dream house, though 😉
3. DIY Headboard
After graduating from API, Rob started primary at Whiting Field which was about an hour and a half from our place in Perdido Key so we made the move an hour north to cut down on some of his commute. While moving ourselves again was not ideal and it was difficult to leave our condo on the beach, our new place is very conveniently located to everything. The new place also energized me to do a DIY project that had been on my list for a while — build a headboard for our bed. I am still totally in love with how it turned out!
4. McGuire’s 5K
I should have guessed that McGuire’s would know how to do St. Patrick’s Day right but their annual 5K is seriously above and beyond. This run was honestly one of the best run 5Ks I have ever done. The t-shirts were high quality, the food and drinks after the race were plentiful (free irish wakes and irish stew) and while over 14,000 people take part, there were virtually no lines to wait. The bands were great and people partied for hours after the race was finished. It was definitely not a fast race to get your best time but we had a blast!
5. Mullet Toss
We celebrated my 25th birthday at the Mullet Toss at the Flora-Bama. This is a giant beach party where people gather to throw a mullet (the fish) across the state line from Florida to Alabama. It was so much fun! I even threw the mullet and while I barely made it across the state line, I kept people laughing with my facial expressions about holding a dead fish 😉
