Looking Ahead

I can’t believe you guys liked that vlog so much! And yes, for some reason I’ve always called a remote control a “tv box.” Weird, right?! Hopefully there will be more vlogs in the future, and hopefully they’ll include my husband, because he clearly makes you guys laugh just as much as he makes me laugh!

Even though we had a bumpy end to Twenty Ten, I think 2011 is going to be a pretty great year. I’m getting excited for a few things:

  • My birthday in a couple weeks! This is the first year—out of five—that I’ll be with my husband. He wants me to give him a menu for what I’d like to eat that day. What would be on your birthday menu? 

  • My blogiversary in February! This site is turning SIX this year. I’m considering having a giveaway, but have no idea what I’d give away.

  • Our first anniversary next month. Whoa. I can’t believe it’s been almost a year. I’m so, unbelievably in love with my husband. 

  • A couple trips home. We found out we’ll get to go home twice within the next three months. Of course, plans can always change when dealing with the military, but just the thought of a trip home makes me happy.

  • And last, but not least: We’re PCSing to…….Heh, I’m not letting the cat out of the bag that easy. We’ll likely PCS (permanent change of station for the non-military folk; it basically means the military is making us move) during the summer and while we have a good idea of where we’re going, I’d rather not blurt it out until we know for sure. But just for fun, if you could move anywhere in the world, where would you like to go?

So besides thinking about the fun things above, I’ve been cooking a lot over here. A friend of mine recently told me that all I do now is cook and eat, and she’s completely right. I’m on this huge kick where I love being in the kitchen. 

If you follow me on Twitter then you know about all the things we’ve been making over here. I’m trying to get them up on The Tale of Two Kitchens as fast as I can, which is why posting is a little light over here. Really, besides cooking, eating, and enjoying time with my husband, there hasn’t been much going on in my life. And I’m 100 percent, perfectly okay with that! 

I asked these two questions earlier, but I’m interested in your answers:

  1. What would be on your birthday menu (breakfast, lunch, and dinner)?
  2.  If you could move anywhere in the world, where would you like to go? and…
  3. What’s your favorite meal?


  1. The Army only has a few places that I would love to move to (Japan being one of them).

    Since you are AF….don't they have a base in England? I would love that!!!

    I'm ready to do the international thing if you can't tell!

    Birthday menu=anything that J could make without burning the place down 😉

  2. Haha I am such a homebody, but I think England would be awesome. Or Greece!

    Meal wise—I dont know if I even have a favorite meal lol. Probably a juicy steak, fresh veggies, and mashed potatoes.

  3. A birthday menu… how fun!

    Mine would include crandberry bagels with honey smear from Einsteins coffee AND orange juice, gilled cheese and tomatoe soup followed by a large cobb salad and sweet potatoe fries for dinner. Totally random but I would be one happy camper!

  4. My birthday menu would most likely include chocolate chip pancakes for breakfast, sushi and miso for lunch and Alaskan sockeye for dinner.

    Hopefully, Alan will receive his orders this month! If we could go anywhere, I'd choose somewhere warm. I actually don't even really care right now. I'm just tired of PA. 🙂 Korea would be cool, since I was born there, but having left the country, life would be verrry difficult for me.

    My favorite meal is anything seafood.

    Also, on a completely unrelated topic, I have a new blog, linked below. It's mostly for wedding stuff.

  5. I'm sad you're leaving at all!! 🙁

    My bday menu would probably consist of sugar, sugar, sugar – all three meals. Sad, but true.

    If I could move anywhere…oh gosh, I've done nothing but dream of that for the past few weeks and even more since being snowed in….I don't know a specific location, but definitely on a beach in the gulf. Doesn't have to be US…just near gulf waters. 🙂

  6. I'd love to make it up to the Pacific Northwest or New York City or San Diego or New England somewhere… I think the military is good for me, because I want to travel and I get bored after 2-3 years in one place 😉

    My birthday menu consists of cinnamon rolls (breakfast), Panera chicken noodle soup (lunch), and BBQ from Sticky Fingers (dinner). And my bday cake is the Irish Car Bomb cake!

    I think my favorite meal is… gosh, that's tough. For now, I'll go with chicken and dumplings, but that's definitely subject to change.

  7. Birthday – fried dough with powdered sugar or really gooey cinnamon rolls, for breakfast. Lunch would be a really big italian sub from Wegmans. Dinner would be an awesome steak dinner out with Daniel. Boston Cream pie for dessert!

    I think either Andrews in Washington D.C. or any base in Germany.

  8. Mmmmm the thought of bday meals is lovely. I usually end up selecting a really yummy restaurant to go to…and then kind of save my stomach all day for the big meal so I can pig out! Haha! It really depends on my mood, but some of my most popular bday dinner choices are PF Changs and Bonefish…but this year I think I'll be picking Ocean Prime – sooooo good!

  9. So many exciting things!!!

    My birthday breakfast would include crepes with gelato (specifically the ones I ate in Barcelona!) with a BLT on yummy bread for lunch and Melting Pot for dinner! yum!

    If I could move anywhere, I think I'd like to live in Europe somewhere!

  10. OMG! I was just thinking earlier this week that I wished you and I lived closer (I think your husband and my husband would get along well, along with you and I! Sorry if that sounds….weird! LOL) Anyway, now I'm excited for you to move (we have about another year before we PCS) and I can't wait to hear where you are moving to!

    Ok…. I'm gonna stop because this comment's just gonna start sounding kinda stalker-ish. (Yeah, cause it doesn't already!) LOL I will comment again, soon….when I'm not doped up on muscle relaxers!

  11. I sometimes find that trying to keep up both blogs is a little daunting. I really love the food blog so the regular blog gets forgotten a lot.

    I would either want sushi or a delicious steak on my birthday dinner. Breakfast…hmmm…the rooty tooty from IHOP.

    I like moving new places so I'm happy wherever the Army sends us…

  12. Thank you for posting such a useful, impressive and a wicked article./Wow.. looking good!
    congrats! keep up the good work/this is a great presentation.
