Weekend Update & Blogmopoliton

This past weekend has been a pretty good one I must say. Like I had said in my last post, it started off with a super lovely flash flood warning. Hubs had been out in the field that whole day (plus several before that) and showed up late that night. I opened the door and he was soaked from head to toe. Poor guy. It must have sucked to been out there during that crappy storm.

Saturday came after a bad nights sleep for me. We decided to head off base and into town to shop around for some bedroom furniture and other things since we have gotten our tax money back. We searched through so many stores only to find that we can't afford what we want yet. So, after a frustrating search we decided to go have dinner. Of course while we were there we went to dinner at Olive Garden. 

When we arrived we were greeted by a beautiful full rainbow. I was so disappointed because their meal they had been advertising for so long was no longer there. I got something I was used to and we sat and ate dinner together. Then we traveled the long road home. We did come home with a few things for the kitchen and some new movies though.
When Sunday came around, we slept in, which felt great. We got up and Hubs did laundry while I made a grocery list and then we headed out to the Commissary. After putting all of the groceries away we relaxed and finally watched the final episode of Opposite Worlds. Does anyone else watch this show? We have been obsessed with it. It is so original and fun. We can't wait for the next season to come around! Once dinner time hit the clock we got up and figured out what we wanted to eat. Hubs begged me to make my enchiladas (a recipe I haven't posted on here). I have been determined to not buy tortillas from the store anymore and just make my own, because it is a lot cheaper and I know they will taste better. While Hubs prepared the mix for the enchiladas I made tortillas for the first time. Let me tell you, I was so excited! It was a lot of fun and they turned out great! And oh my god, they were so much better than store bought ones when I used them for the enchiladas. Seriously people. If you have the time, it is such a great idea to do. It really doesn't take long either. Probably twenty minutes total. When I make my enchiladas with store bought ones (like Mission tortillas) they would get kind of soggy. Meh. With the homemade ones, they didn't get soggy, and that definitely made a delicious difference. Once I got to the stove to cook them Hubs helped out by rolling the dough out so I would have another one ready when the one I was working on was fully cooked. We made a great team!
