Today's bento. Meh. If I'm being honest, I'm not thrilled with it. But quite frankly, I think I deserve a squish of extra credit for it because I was up before 6AM this morning. My husband's promotion was this morning so I had to actually get myself put together properly before we left the house so that we could attend. I had a very important role in his ceremony and was responsible for "pinning" on his new rank! Basically, this all means that my alarm clock was pestering me at 5:30AM. I am not a morning person. If I had the chance to re-make this lunch now that it's nearly noon and I've had coffee... It'd probably turn out a lot cuter and less... Thrown together. Oh well. It does the trick.
Today to go with the school-provided Friday bread and milk, A has tamagoyaki, a couple of hot dog kids (new and improved with angel hair!), edamame, a strawberry, a jelly, some carrots, cheese, apples and kiwis.
Also... Congratulations honey! :) We love you and are so proud.
Five years ago today, before we had children, before the military moved us away (far away!) from our "home" state of California... I pinned on his previous rank. Today I was thrilled to be a part - and have our children be a part, as well - of this newest big event in our family and in my husband's career.
