food storage. Not to mention actually having emergency food.
I'm definitely thankful that we live where we do, because we aren't in extreme places like Tornado Alley, or Florida with all the hurricanes. I'm sure I'd be a wreck living in those locations. But thankfully there are many options out there.

The hubs and I have a neighbor who is a great friend that does all kinds of automotive work. Mainly repairs. We also know a few people that work on cars as a hobby. While we were at dinner with one of them last week, they were talking about how they like to get customized horns for their cars.
We had never thought about that. He particularly was looking for train horns. I had absolutely no idea that there are actual train horn kits that you can get to put on your car. Or train horns for trucks, for that matter.
Who knew what existed in the outside world! lol. It's like we are in a whole different dimension when hanging out with them, because we are always learning about new and different things.

This past weekend, the hubs and I celebrated our 4th wedding anniversary. We just enjoyed each other's company, and relaxed for the weekend. I had to work on Saturday evening (our actual anniversary) so we enjoyed a few drinks afterwards with a co-worker, and then had dinner.
I'm always getting comments about how lovely my engagement/wedding ring is. It truly is exquisite. My hubs did a great job. But it got me to thinking, how much thought really goes into men's wedding bands? I know my husband is not the picky kind of guy. He just wanted something basic for a wedding band. Simple is all he wanted.
But then, there are other guys that like to stand out a little, and they have these awesome black tungston rings which can be found at Men's Tungston Online. There plain doesn't have to be the answer, and men can have their own unique identity in their ring, just like us ladies!
What's your guy wear?
