Bingo Night!

Last night my friend Renee invited me to go play bingo at the Community Club here on post! I had a blast! She introduced me to her friend Denise who is soooooooo funny! I won two bingo games in a row! I thought I was going to get a beat down from everybody else! lol! We play for prizes so I picked out a set of two decorative stars that match my living room decor and a $15 gift card to the PX. I took the pics on the layout with my camera phone, so they're not the best, but I wanted to do a layout about it! I kept two bingo cards so I could do this layout and the ticket we get when we pay.

This is a pic of another layout I did a few days ago....its not finished and I don't know what else to do to it. I left too much white space and it feels like its missing something so I have it laying out incase I get an idea as to what might make this layout feel finished!

In other news.....I am having such a great time getting to know people here on post! I've been walking everyday with a new friend I met, Sam and Teresa. I've also met a few of the other military wives and civilians and they seem nice. They kind of keep to themselves because they are trying to stay out of the rumor mill! Lol! From what I've been hearing about this place...the rumors and gossip are pretty bad! Which is horrible because then it keeps everybody from wanting to participate in community activities! I, however, will just keep doing what I'm doing! I don't want to be holed up in my house! I want to meet new people and if anything negative is ever said about me, hopefully the friends I make will get to know me good enough to where they know its not true! Its a small community and I know these kinds of things run rampant in them, but I am just going to be me and thats good enough for me!
I am sooooooooooo insanely jealous of my hubby! Special Forces is out here training and Chris gets to train with them! Ugh! I've seriously been thinking about talking to a recruiter! I've been seeing a chinook helicopter flying around here for days and everytime I hear it coming I run outside to see it fly over my house! I love this military life! Its not always fun, it can be stressful and scary, but its amazing! Chris also gets to fly in it by the way....and repel out of it....ya.....I'm jealous, but I'm also incredibly proud of him and his service. I'm proud that I can be apart of it, even though I'm here on the sidelines watching.
...but I wanna fly in a helicopter and drive a tank....actually I want to fly the helicopter!

Hi Raquel!

I received your sweet card and it is amazing! You are so talented! Love your layouts too! If you ever want a tour of Salt Lake from a local civilian send me an email! I'd be happy to show you around! Our house is on the other side of Camp Williams and we love seeing the black hawls fly over! I swear one could have landed on our roof last night it was so low! Take good care and enjoy meeting new people and friends!

Yes, you spell it the right way. I've been to Neuschwanstein twice. I just love it there...
