Army Dining Out

This past Saturday, Mr Army and I went to his Army Dining Out, which is basically the prom for the Army. 
I spent the last few weeks trying to figure out what I was going to wear. I tried on every prom dress I have...all about 6 sizes too big, though a couple I think I might have tailored because they are pretty cute. Anyways, an old bridesmaid's dress did the trick...but I'm a slacker and didn't get any pictures. Don't worry, in awesome prom style, we got our picture taken :) I will post when I get it. In the mean time, here is what we wore:
 this dress
these saucy red shoes (ones on the left)
and Mr. Army looked great as usual, in this:

...Sorry I've been kind of MIA...nothing really exciting going on.

So, I found another recipe idea that I thought would be awesome to try, calzones. Mr. Army LOVES calzones, but will usually settle for pizza, and therefore, I thought we could forget pizza night and try homemade calzones. Yum!
Rolling out the dough...without a rolling pin; it wasn't as hard as I anticipated, thankfully.
Mr. Army trying to cook the frozen sausage. We both thought the other one was going to pull the sausage out to thaw. whoops.
 The prep area, and fix-ins
All ready for baking! ...mine is the ugly one on the left.
We buttered and put cheese on the top to make them pretty. Mine is still the ugly one on the left.
Done, delightful and ready for eating.

thank you, bakerella!

I am always looking for new recipes to try out, and these cake balls, by bakerella were PERFECTION! 

I made German Chocolate, and Red Velvet cake balls for Mother's Day, and both Mr. Army and my families loved them.

Bake a cake, let it cool, and transfer to a bowl.
Make your frosting, or use prepackaged.
Mix the cake and frosting together, and then roll into cake balls.
 After you have refrigerated the cake balls for 2-3 hours, you can drip them in chocolate.

Mine aren't as pretty as bakerella's, but I'm sure they tasted just as great.
All ready for eating :)

Best Burger, Glee and a Little Barefoot Running

So, Mr. Army and I have a constant craving...some may even call it an obsession. We love burgers and fries, we just do (I can just hear Lacy gagging a little). Anyways, we decided one night to try a new burger place since we are still trying to become acquainted with the options Bountiful has to offer. Well, we hit the jackpot with Best Burger. It is right off the freeway at 2600 South, and has the BEST fry sauce I've ever had. It is just a little fast food joint (kind of a Hires/Shivers taste) that I'm pretty sure Mr. Army and I keep in business. Forget In-N-Out...go here! (please don't comment about how I am an In-N-Out hater...I'm not, I just don't think it is worth the hype).

Glee, oh how I love thee. I didn't get into Glee when it first came out because I am a creature of habit, and tend to have a reluctant attitude towards all new shows...until they are on the approved list. Once I saw that posting, I decided it was time to dabble in a little Glee, and I'm sure glad I did. There is one episode where they are doing cheer leading auditions and I honestly cried, I was laughing so hard. If you haven't checked it out, you should.

And finally, the results are in on barefoot running...10.0! I was really nervous to try barefoot running due to the effect it had on Mr. Army's calves, but I already had the proper "shoes" and was not about to let that $80 go to waste. Therefore, on Sunday, I went for a run around my neighborhood in my Asics and then took a short detour to mi casa to change shoes. I ended up going just a little over a mile in the Vibrams and loved it! I wasn't fatigued at all, and it was a refreshing change of pace.

For the record, I was a little sore the next day, but I still could walk and worked out as usual, minus running. The soreness only lasted a day, yesterday I ran 6.5 miles with no problems (not in my Vibrams).

Well, there you have it...that's what been going on in my neck of the woods. More excitement than you can handle, I know.
