Tickled Pink

Good morning, Y'all!!! I am just way to thrilled to be the SITS featured blogger today. Now come on in, make yourself comfy and let's get to know one another. I am fairly new to blogging, only 5 months young. My hubby is an active duty Navy Chief referred to as "Chief" here and our little boy "Little Chief" is 7. I have three older sons that are up and out of the house. My oldest son, Caleb, is also active duty Navy and will be heading off for a second tour in Iraq on October 15th - so prayers are needed.

This must be my lucky week because I am the SITS queen for a day and I got a job yesterday!! I have been looking for a paralegal position since we relocated. So now I went from no jobs to two jobs. I recently started part time at Pier One for holiday help. Sounds like I'm going to be busier than a bee on a honey biscuit.

I am so happy to have you here and I promise to respond to each and every one of you even if it takes a while, cuz my Mama raised me right! Y'all come back now and visit, don't be strangers.

Congrats on your big SITS day! I hope you get lots of commenty goodness today!!

My dad was in the Navy (back in the Viet Nam era) - he was on an aircraft carrier. My thoughts and prayers are with your son and all families with military members.

Cheers!

Congrats on being Queen for the Day! I read some of your blog today and I will have to come back for more when I have time...or can at least justify time. :)

Sounds like your life is going to get even busier, but enjoy the craziness!
