I hate getting dressed up . . .

Okay, well, let me clear that up by saying that I hate getting all dressed up prom-like. Of course, we all know that I'm a big fan of dressing up in costume! Last night was the Castle Ball. It was set up very nicely and we had a good time. Other than the cake being a bit dry, the food was decent. We were at the O'Club and the 82D Airborne Chorus performed. I love listening to them. Note to self: go buy their new cd.

So, we were at the mostly girl table and all our husbands are deployed. Well, not Jessi's, but then again, we just picked her up along the way. Okay, not really. She is Kelly's friend from years ago. She's a blast! I'll post pictures later when I can get them from Wha-Kay!!!

Anyhoo . . . all that to say, that I learned something last night. I thought that my blog wasn't read by many people. Although, Jess Borg, Jessi North, Kathi, Angela and JD, I appreciate that you read my blog! Well, come to find out, there are a couple of you (ahem - MINDY!) who read my blog and don't comment on it! I need that. I need some validation that you find my life interesting....or weird, whatever! I don't need that validation to make myself feel complete, but it makes me feel less of a weirdo for religiously reading other blogs, some of which are of people I have never even met!

So, for those phantoms out there reading my blog, even if you post anonymously, let me know you're out there. Maybe that will encourage me to post more frequently and maybe drop more names! :-) As if that makes you famous! ha ha

.................

So - tonight is my Barbie Birthday Party. I'm so very excited. I'm on my way out the door now, as a matter of fact, to go pick up all my goodies for my costume tonight. I will make SURE to post a lot of pictures! Go Barbie, Go Barbie - it's your birthday, get busy!

Here's a hint about my costume tonight... "Come on Barbie, let's go Party"

"Oh oh oh yeah!"

Happy early birthday. Hope you have fun.

Rachel Huse said...

Thank you, ladies!

Jess Borg - you were invited, dotard! You don't read your emails! You are right - it was Kelly's idea. Mara and Lee Ann went ALL out for it! We had a blast. Wait until I post pics...I'll tell more about it later...

Ok, so here I am... I love reading your blog, it gives me something to do at work! Gotta love a cush-job!! :)

Hi, Jess! I must say I'm a little scared that you were talking about me the other day... that couldn't have been good! :)

Hey Rachel!! You don't know me, and like you, I too occasionally read random blogs. Not weird at all (well maybe a little). :-) I really have enjoyed your reading your posts, and you remind me a LOT of myself (we seem to have the same personality and are about the same age).

Ok...so this post happens to be from more than a year ago, but I just recently started blogging (about a week ago) and I have been bummed that more people (other than my select few friends and family) haven't been reading it (or so I thought because they weren't commenting on anything). Come to find out,people are reading it, just not commenting. So anyway...you said for all the phantoms to comment, so here I am. Keep up the great blogs! (is that the correct terminology??)

Have a great day!! ~Sarah G.
