Not An Officer, But A Gentleman!

This is me when I was about 5-years-old! There is a funny story behind this photo! Not funny at the time, but funny now and coincidental! My sister Kim bought me this shirt when her husband was at boot camp in the Navy. This is what is on the shirt: "My Boyfriend Survived Boot Camp Naval Training Center Great Lakes, IL." I guess she bought it for me because I always thought her boyfriends where "my" boyfriends! lol You know how little sisters can be!

The funny thing is, at around the same time my husband was at that boot camp! There is a 14 year age difference between us, so when I was 5, he was 19-years-old and stationed in the same area as my brother-in-law! My brother-in law didn't know my husband Chris at the time...but it's just a big coincidence that we met about 17 years later and fell in love!

Don't you just love my permed hair, wonderful bangs, and purple sailor hat?! lol
Here is what my husband looked like then! What a hunk! Too bad I didn't know him back then (which would actually be weird and illegal) but I have a thing for guys in uniform!...(Richard Gere in "An Officer and A Gentleman...HELLO PEOPLE can we say HOT!)
Speaking of Richard Gere Hotness..."Hachiko A Dog's Story" is being released on DVD tomorrow! YAY! I've waited forever to watch this movie. I downloaded it on the internet, and it ended up being in Spanish! I watched about 1/2 the movie in Spanish and ended up turning it off because of the language barrier! But one thing that translates in every language...RICHARD GERE IS HOT! ;) Be sure to buy the dvd tomorrow, and pick up a box of tissues as well!

I'll soon be back to blogging on a regular basis, my laptop should be repaired and in my hands this week! I cannot wait! Have a great week!
