Happy Easter!

I sent off the last of my themed packages for Easter. So out of this:

came this version of the Easter Bunny:

What do you think would happen if that was what came hopping around the bend with the Easter baskets rather than that cute bushy-tailed bunny? I'll give him this much, he's a REALLY good sport!

The Joys of Sharing

It's nice to know that some of the candy I send ends up in some other deserving hands (aside from all the wonderful soldiers of course).

How unbelievably adorable is that? Now I ask you, how can I not love that man?

Mission Accomplished?

So as you may recall in my first blog post I gave myself the challenge of becoming the "world's greatest Army girlfriend." This is what I received from my love today:

He has apparently been the lucky recipient of 1 gorilla, 1 paddle, dvd set, hat, glasses, 25 cards, and 7 post cards all courtesy of yours truly (in addition to various packages of cookies, candy and other goodies). I am also told that the general consensus on his base is that i better be treated "like gold." Of course, I'm inclined to agree. So, does this mean I've achieved my goal and truly am the best Army girlfriend ever? I'm considering taking a poll. Anyway, little does he know, the package sending is not over yet. Stay tuned . . .

St. Patty's Day Comes Early

It's a truly wonderful world where this

can arrive in Iraq and produce this

in only 4 short days!!! I think the Post Office/APO deserves a round of applause for some quick work on that one.

I Digress

This blog is not supposed to be even remotely about politics (well at least except for that whole this war made my boyfriend go away for a year thing), but since I think I'm supposed to use a blog to share general thoughts and ideas too I suggest you take a look at the following. If you were an ardent fan of the West Wing like I was, or am a political fanatic like I am you'll enjoy it:

Please do not take this as an endorsement on Obama. I will withhold my personal views on him as a candidate. I will just say, in my opinion, he's no Matt Santos.
