Just in case I forget!

I was talking to Eric today on the phone and we got on the topic of food which we all know I love to talk about! And I asked him what he wanted to eat for his first meal when he gets back! Since his first meal good be in 12 weeks or even 17 I had to blog just so I don't forget. Here's what he wants:

A large salad with out cucumbers or dressing (he hates dressing!)
A nice big steak, I forgot to ask him how he wants it cooked though, so I need to figure that out!
HOMEMADE mashed potatoes and gravy. "Not that fake stuff your mom swears is real" That's a direct quote!
Green bean casserole with extra onion crunchies :)
Beer from the Harmon Brewery in Tacoma
And German Chocolate Cake. (this is what he picked because he was forced to, hes not a dessert person!)

So if you have a great way to cook steak or how to make amazing German chocolate cake, send it my way PRETTY PLEASE!!

So after 27 long days on a mission in Afghanistan, I got a wonderful call this morning from my husband saying he's back to his FOB saying he's safe and sound!! A lot of things happened and they saw tons of action! If you watch or read the news, many of the stories recently are about Eric's unit! He is glad to be back to showers, real food, a bed, computers and a TON of mail! He didn't take a shower the whole time he was gone which is DISGUSTING!! Here are a few pictures, notice how thin he is and enjoy! Also cross your fingers he doesn't have to go out any time soon!! Love ya E

Holding a coffee pot! It doesn't look like he can plug it in anywhere lol
Graber (who was nice enough to let Eric use his phone while he was out so I could hear from him) and Eric trying to look very fierce and tough!
By far my FAVORITE! He looks SUPER sexy!!
John and Eric trying to be "cheesy!"
