We Are Those People

You know the ones that I'm talking about...
That have a great relationship.
Rarely fight.
Love each other to the point that it doesn't seem possible.
We make the best of every situation.
Find joy in the little things.
That value hard work.
And thus get what we worked hard for...


I am happy to announce that after two very long years, Will has been selected to become a Flight Warrant! Not only will he get the badass job of flying helicopters, he will also become a Warrant Officer. This new job will take us close to family, comes with a pay raise, and gets us out of a deployment. It's like we won the life lottery, and I couldn't be any more proud.

As Will pointed out the other night, when he first mentioned that he wanted to join the Military, I said "Heeeell no." I was completely against the idea and never planned on leaving Florida. Period. Now, five years later, I have followed him all over the country, waited through a deployment, tailor my life to his career, and even rock some {tasteful} Army swag gear.

Never say never...

I tried to look up a cute Pinterest quote to go with this and it was a lot of Bieber fever nonsense. It's like he created that  Never Say Never song, and took over the quote.

And just so y'all don't think everything is too "perfect" around here, last night Will wrapped his arms around me spilling his drink, but didn't want to say anything so that I would get annoyed that he got it all over the bed. Then, I unknowingly went downstairs for a snack and came back to find my laptop on the floor. When I asked why my laptop was on the floor, he confessed to spilling his drink and then trying to change the sheets before I noticed. He's lucky that I spilled a little coffee that morning when I sneezed and he fessed up, because I totally would have noticed that we went from plain white sheets to white sheets with subtle stripes. He may not know the difference, but I do.


We aren't perfect, but we are most certainly perfect for each other!

That's so awesome! Congrats to your hubby.
And I'm glad to see there are other couples who rarely fight, have a great relationships, etc. When it gets brought up and I tell people that my husband and I rarely fight they look at me like I'm an alien. It amazes me that we aren't the norm.
But congrats, you deserve it. =]

Congrats!!! I know he has worked really hard for this and you have been that wonderful wife by his side through it all. My hubby is a WO too! What good news that there will be no more deployment. That is awesome!! I kinda feel like we are "that" couple too. We don't fight and anything I'm ever annoyed with him about is usually stupid petty stuff.

Wow! Congrats on the new job for Will! How awesome! Florida is amazing this time of year, as you well know :)
My husband and I used to be that couple, that is until his lovely PTSD from this past deployment. But we are slowly making our way back to the way we used to be.
I'm so glad things are so good for you!!!!!
