Teeny Tiny Pineapple...

Pineapple plants are suppose to grow to the height of 2ft.
They are suppose to take 18-24mo to flower and produce fruit.

Mine decided that was too long.
6in tall & 5mo old, I've got a quarter sized pineapple. what?

At this point I'm surprised I've actually gotten it to grow, albeit way too fast. I tend to kill everything. Do any of you garden? Pineapples are actually really easy to grow, literally pop off the top of the plant, pull off the bottom section of leaves, place into a glass of water and wait for small roots to show, then plant (in the ground like me, or in a pot - they can even be grown indoors!), then water once a week if there is no rain. They won't do well outside in cold weather though.

I get to keep him. +home business woes

I get to keep my husband around... for a couple of extra months. We finally found out that his name was dropped from the October deployment roster! Not to be outdone, the Marine Corps has decided that he will be attending a 4mo Course followed closely by a 6-7mo deployment in the coming year...

At least we get our anniversary, Thanksgiving, and Christmas together!

2013 is looking to be very interesting, very interesting indeed...

I hope to share some vacation photos with you if I can get my booty in gear, at the moment my car's check engine light is on {again x6}, my laptop's hard drive literally fell off the bottom of it, and my camera has something rattling inside and won't focus to save my life. All of the above are very stressful since my home business is contract marketing & personal event photography, aka: car, laptop, and camera are ESSENTIAL to my work life.

We're budgeting things out, while we can't do anything about the car, we'll just keep praying it's a short in the circuit since no one has been able to pinpoint anything truly wrong with it other than it's an island POS. I'm hoping to find a reasonably priced camera shop to clean my baby, but I am also planning on upgrading to a new Canon (keeping the Rebel as a back-up if she works). As far as the laptop, we have a desktop (using it now, obviously), but I'm super lazy/love editing photos while watching movies and that can't happen in the office... but I guess that will wait too, haha.

Goal #1- New Camera.

How are you all doing?
I'm so out of the blogging loop.
I apologize!

Oh... are any of you going?!

I registered, Hawaii ladies... did you?!

I just finished registering (as in 5min ago!) for the Joint Spouses Conference 2012, if you have been following me for awhile you'll remember my short re-cap from last years conference.

I'm excited for this year because I am hoping to have some friends accompany me and I would ABSOLUTELY LOVE to meet up with any of you Hawaii MilSpouse Bloggers at this event. That being said- please let me know if you will be attending, we should grab a table together at breakfast/lunch, and definitely socialize during the late afternoon expo!*

Also, if you are on the Windward side of the island, I am totally cool with carpooling.

If you haven't registered, do so ASAP,
last year it closed within the first 3hrs!

*We can e-mail each other our workshop schedules as well to see if we'll be in any together!
