Happy Thoughts:


Wicked Girl's Day

I have learned all kinds of new words since I've been here like "wicked" & "Hey Kid" & all week I have been looking forward to going to Maine! We woke up a little early after drinking a little too much last night. We spent the day in Kennebunkport, ME with Nicole's mom. we had such a great time. On the drive, we too some pictures of the absolutely gorgeous view. It turned out to be such a pretty day. 

We had a delicious lunch at a place called Allison's. We had Clam Chowder (my first time ever trying it) and Lobster Rolls.I absolutely LOVED the clam chowder.We saw this adorable little boy wearing pink sunglasses with Disney princess on them.

Afterward we did a little shopping, I got a super cute bracelet with anchors on it, a wine stopper with an anchor, and two more shot glasses to add to my collection. After we finished shopping, we drove down to New Hampshire and took a tour of the USS Albacore. We were being so silly since there wasn't anyone else on the tour.

We played captain for a while and pressed all the buttons we could.

We got comfy and tried out the beds, it gives me a new appreciation for what my husband does. I can't imagine sleeping in those bunk beds every night, they're so uncomfortable.

Nicole kept pretending she was talking on all the sub phones, and we played around with the scope thingy. We could see all the cars outside on the bridge it was pretty awesome. Before we left she snapped this picture of me on the tiny sub toilet. 

After we were done being silly, we drove to a liquor store on the side of the highway. I was on a quest to find shot glasses for New Hampshire. It was the third time we've gone and I hadn't managed to find one before. I am amazed, one, that the liquor stores are open on Sundays, and two, that they have them on the highway. It's so strange since in Texas they don't sell liquor on Sundays, and it seems to me like they're sorta condoning drinking and driving by having them on the highway. Since I've been here I've managed to add 7 shot glasses to my collection. I was really tired so I took a nap on the way home for like an hour, and then Nicole's mom made yummy stuffed shells for dinner. Now we're relaxing, and I am excited for Army wives tonight!


  1. My husband is a subbie, so I've actually USED one of those sub toilets before when I visited him on duty. You have to pull one lever and twist some other thing to flush it. Looks like y'all had a fun day trip!

  2. Looks like such fun! Glad you found more shot glasses.

    I never heard of liquor stores being closed on Sundays until I moved down to DC. In NJ they never did that! I mean, I suppose it makes sense, but it can be pretty inconvenient at times.
