In other happenings, I went to lunch with my new friend Jessi. She's a spouse from the squadron and just had a baby 3 weeks ago. She's sweet and upbeat and a lot of fun to be around (baby and all). We went to lunch at this little cafe called Cafe Casa. It's off base and has a great laid-back vibe. It has lots of coffee and tea options as well as a great looking menu. Everything is homemade - the desserts, the breads for sandwiches, etc. I got a naan pizza that was delicious and a piece of coconut lemon bread that had good flavor, but was a little dry.
Jessi was happy with her caramel macchiato (she said it was the thickest whipping cream she has ever had) and her B.E.L.T. (Bacon, Egg, Lettuce, Tomato). It was a great way to spend a Friday afternoon.
Earlier today Rana had a play date with Luna, a 9 month old lab. They are the perfect size for each other and get along great. I know Rana wants a buddy, but I also know that I can't handle 2 dogs without a yard. She'll just have to be happy with me as her buddy for the next few years.
