{Almost} Homecoming

The best day of my life to date is happening in a very short amount of time.
Better than a birthday, better than gazing on the Fjords in Norway or the Shetland Ponies on the Shetland Islands, even better so than my wedding day.
It will be the day that my soldier comes home.

Here is a little diddy that I dedicate to him:


After nine months, he will arrive safe and make me whole once more.

I've heard horror stories of them aborting flights when OPSEC was compromised, so I'm still not saying which day it is, but I promise I will be shouting it from the rafters via other Social Media when it actually occurs. I know I'm probably being overly cautious, but I'd rather be safe than sorry.

I am so happy that Kristine is visiting, because I couldn't come up with a full blog post if my life depended on it. My brain is going every which'a way. Plus this girl ALWAYS makes me smile. She is one of those people that you just can't help but love, so I know that she will be the same for you.


I used to think... I would graduate nursing school, marry Nate, work full time and make moolah until I got {knocked up} and started having us a whole football team made up of mini me's and mini Nate's. All in that order peeps.
Now I know... That things don't always work out exactly how we plan, and that sometimes it works out for the better. God had a bigger plan for me, for us. Being a stay at home mama is seriously the bees knees and I wouldn't trade it for any 9-5 job I could clock in and out of. Football team... ha! More like basketball team. 2 and counting {wink wink}.


People see me as... an always positive, laid back kinda gal.
But I hope that they know... that even tho I do strive to look on the bright side of things in every situation, sometimes that gets too exhausting #truth and a good ugly cry is sometimes needed. I struggle with taking my own advice of staying positive. #practicewhatyoupreach


I blog because... I love it! My blog is where you'll find me {over}sharing and documenting my attempts at being a fun mom and wifey, being "fashionable", and being Suzy Homemaker, ya know throwing in some sweets and some craftoons in the mix. I have never meant to come across to my readers as the perfect family, and how we have it all together, because we don't. I like to make a point of sharing all the blessings we are given, spreading love and light is an easy thing for me. #itscontagious I think documenting and sharing the bad, and even sometimes the dirty parts of life are just as important. Learning and growing is all part of living, I mean really living. So blessed to have found such an amazing community in the "Blog World" and finding other women that I can relate to on so many levels just blows my mind. If you're all about living it up, head on over to our casa and introduce your pretty self! I'd love to follow your adventures as well. If you need some pointers on living young, and wild, and free check this post out. Peace out lovers!! Thanks so much to Janna for having me! XOXOOX

Oh my goodness!! I can tell you that even though it wasn't my husband coming home from deployment, I know the ridiculous amount of crazy feelings and thoughts going through your head! One of my very best friends has been gone 2x now, and is possibly going on a third deployment soon. We talk regularly while he is gone, but welcoming him home is always the sweetest victory of the whole experience. I hope you tune us all out for a good week or more once he's here, and just enjoy being with each other again! XoXo!!!

Megan Wadsworth said...

I've been keeping an eye on the welcome home ceremonies that are upcoming, been trying to figure out which one is yours! The OPSEC thing about welcome home flights pisses me off... it's PUBLIC knowledge that you can get on the Fort Carson site, so I hate when they freak out about it! Been thinking about you! YAY!

Kait said...

Kristine is so cute. Love her little story. I love seeing how real things are, the planning and how it doesn't work out as plan, but you make it work. Love stories like that.
