Fort Polk Survival 101

As most of you military spouses know friends coming & going is a regular part of your military life. I have a good friend & battle buddy who is PCSing with her soldier very soon to Fort Polk. I know I just heard a bunch of groaning from all you Army wives-LOL I don't know many who are jumping up & down excited about going to Polk. I can thankfully say that is one place we have never gotten orders for & I hope we never do!
Anyway as  my friend gets ready to leave another friend has put together a dinner for her to say goodbye. It looks to be most of us wives who she ran around with during the last deployment. We where asked to bring a GAG gift for her that would make her laugh about her unfortunate lot in life to move to POLK. 




I am sure that some are going to bring the usual Mardi Gras stuff of beads & masks.



I personally would be making a batch of Hurricanes to take but I know myself & would drink the yummy concoction therefore giving her an empty pitcher!

Now that wouldn't be to much fun for her but I bet I would be the life of the Party!!

I also know some will say the bugs are awful in Louisanna so bug be gone spray would be funny!



       I agree the bugs in the south are awful in the summer!

I am in hopes that even though I only have a few who follow my BLOG that you can come up with something else a lot more funny! I am at a lose for what to purchase or put together for Louisanna survival 101?? I am not sure if it is because I have been awake tossing since 4:30AM or if it is because I am stressed over paying a huge Orthodontist bill for my older son (that is a whole different BLOG).
Anyway if you have ever been to Polk or have any AWESOME suggestions just randomly pop into your lovely minds, PLEASE- PLEASE post them here for me. I would greatly appreciate it & will take pictures of the evening to let you know what all she receives. I am excited for the night as I love Theme Dinner parties! We will surely miss our lovely friend, but what FUN we will have sending her off!

Your blog isn't bad, but don't hate me for saying I totally hate the little hearts everywhere because I can't read your posts very easily! Get rid of them and you're good to go! lol.
Seriously, when i come up with my funniest stuff, I am laying in bed making commentary in my head or to my husband...I lunge for a notepad to write it down before I forget it. You have to just do that when you have funny thoughts, make it a subject and then expand upon it. Easier said than done, I know. ;)

LOL- Keri I was debating on the little hearts- I have another background i can try that keeps the hearts but fades them into it so they don't POP out. I am such a girly , girly the hearts as just me. But I will take it under advisement.Yeah I am so not a writer, this BLOG was started more for my own sanity as we trudge through all these deployments- so hopefully the longer it goes on the better I get! Thanks for the tips!
