Early Holidays Ho!

M got his orders and we are currently using his month of leave to visit family. After this we will be flying off to places unknown! Kidding. We know exactly where we're going, but I'm not allowed to give public specifics until after we arrive. For those of you reading from our OotO group, however, we got that location I'd last talked about in our group message :)
I brought most of my soapy supplies to my parents' since a majority of it could not be packed and moved, so this time has been spent being a soapy fiend. I've taken lots of pictures with the intention of posting eventually, but I'm concentrating more on family during this time. I promise I'll post all about any soapy adventures I have or will embark on, as well as some more wax reviews and hauls. It just might be a while :)
One of the benefits to our vacation being just before the holidays is our families have decided to do certain things a little earlier. Just last weekend we had a true Thanksgiving/Christmas meal with turkey and ham and mashed potatoes and... you get the point :) This also means we've decorated for Christmas in early November as opposed to the week of Thanksgiving. I feel like this makes up for last year never feeling like it got to Christmas for me. I was robbed of my holidays last year!
Anyways, just checking in to the few people who consistently read my blog. I've not been as good about keeping up with my reading of your blogs. Update me! How are things going in your necks of the woods??


  1. I'm bummed it's not that other location, but I'm also excited if it's the one I think it is! Will you send me postcards? Want to do swap boxes while you're there? How long will you be there?

    That's awesome that you get to do the holidays with your family, even if it is early. And great that you're 'feeling it' this year. I struggle in that department most years.

    Not much excitement around here. Got my UO all updated with the new expansion or whatever they're calling that. Hoping to get some decent playtime in this weekend. I'm itching to play Warcraft too. I've been slacking on my blog too, because it just seems so dead. I know people are busy lately but it just seems like I'm talking to an empty room all the time. Yep, I'm definitely one that needs interaction. lol

    Good luck in your move!!!


    1. I'm bummed about the other location (I wanted to send you all the stuff from there!!) but really anywhere we go we'll get to explore the world, so that's a plus. I will send you postcards and of course we can do swap boxes! I'll be there either 2 or 3 years. For sure two but we could volunteer for another year if we find we like it.
      I've been meaning to install UO on the laptop I've been playing on just to log on and start checking out the new lands, but every time I sit down to do it someone here wants to do something and up I go again, lol
      I considered for a time doing a daily or at least weekly blog post about my life and what I've been doing, but I have the same issue you've expressed where after a while I don't have anything new to write about due to a pretty regular (read: repetitive) life. Of course that's not the case while I'm on vacation, but I'm not looking to spend my time at a computer.
      It's funny that I have such issues posting about my personal life because that's what I love the most about reading others' blogs, regardless of how repetitive or boring they think it is (Hint hint :P)

  2. How exciting Liz!!! I am so happy for you both! Still dying to see your soap ;-) awwww OotO, how I miss thee. I would love to swap boxes with you too when you get over there. Will you message us your address? Happy Thanksgiving!!! Glad you get to have your holidays while the anticipation is still vibrant!
