Tonight i miss him more...

I try not to complain about k being gone because I know this is how our life will be for the next few years. I try to hold myself together while listening to other girls express how lonely they feel with their husband gone for the weekend. I go to work, and come home. Day after day it's the same thing. I do everything alone, and without him. I have a countdown on my phone set for his first homecoming date. I love seeing double digits. I wait all day for it to be 8:30 pm. That is the time he gets off of work, and on most days, that is the time we Skype for a few wonderful minutes. It is what gets me through these days, weeks, months, and soon to be years. Tonight I'm missing him more than usual. I'd love to feel his big strong arms huggin me. I'm counting down the days for when I'm not flying solo, everywhere. Soon enough. Xoxo

My What Ifs.....

I found this fun "What ifs" questionnaire on G.I. Joe's Wife blog. :) 
Just finished packing to head back home, and I'm wide awake. 

What if I were to get pregnant? It would be immaculate conception seeing as Kyle and I are hundreds of miles apart, BUT I would be happy. Though I'd like to get married first, things would just be a little bit out of order!

What if I could have any job in the world? I've thought about this, and honestly...I don't know. I'd love to get paid to travel, and I'd love to be a food critic! OR I'd love to do BOTH at the same time!

What if I had a day all to myself? I would find a way to enjoy it.

What if I could get married all over again? We're not married yet...SOOO I would LOVE to get married. A small romantic and sweet wedding is in my future.

What if I could live anywhere in the US? I know I should say anywhere with Kyle, but living in SD didn't work out for us haha....SOOO....This time lets try somewhere a bit closer to home and closer to a city.

What if I were to have more children? I don't have any yet :)

What if I could have any talent in the world? I'd be a money maker! I'd be a genius so I could make MILLIONS and Kyle would be home safe, and we'd be able to enjoy life without having to stress! 

What if you met me in real life? You'd probably like me. Okay, I just sounded really full of myself, but really. I'd like to consider myself easy to relate to, and I have a good sense of humor. I also talk A LOT, and sometimes I get way too excited about what I'm trying to say...I stutter!

What if I went back to school? Currently my life story. I go back in January...SO excited!

What if money weren't an object?  I know a lot of people who would be able to actually enjoy life.

What if I could meet one celebrity? I guess I don't really have somebody I obsess over...WAIT. I take that back. I'd love to meet Taylor Swift. LOVE her.

What if I could only shop at one store for the rest of my life? I just spent way too much time thinking about this answer haha. I'd have to say SUPER Target, so then I could buy clothing, groceries, household items, and soooo muuuuchhh more!

What if I could choose an animal/pet? First I want a kitty, then I'll get a doggy...BUT the doggy will come once Kyle is actually home for more than 3 months out of the year.

What if I could go on a trip right now? Technically I've been on one for the last few weeks. I'd fly myself to see Kyle. I sure would love to be next to him! I'd also go to Hawaii for some sunshine, and Europe to go shop (with the money I created....being a money maker and all...)

What if I had to choose between a house cleaner and professional chef? HOUSE CLEANER. Oh my gosh....PLEASE. Be my guest. Although, I'm not a horrible house cleaner...I'd rather spend my time cooking. :)

What if I had the option to get plastic surgery? I'd enhance ;) AFTER I have babies I will consider!

Cooking Challenge/Planning Meals/Pinterest!

Before I go to bed I HAD to post a blog about this! 

Kyle and I have wasted SO MUCH FOOD and MONEY. We grocery shop, fill our fridge, and discover those purchased items weeks later when they're being thrown away to make room for our fresh groceries. Thinking about how much food has gone to waste just sickens me....SO I've come up with a plan.

While Kyle is gone, I'm going to be cooking/baking a new recipe each week. By the time he's back in the states and we have a home to call ours again, I will be quite the chef! I'm going to Plan our meals for the week, because it will eliminate us wasting money on food we don't need or eat. I'm going to freeze a couple of meals, for the nights we just don't feel up to cooking. I'm almost positive that this will be a nice treat for our wallets, tummies, and health! Frankly, I can't wait!!  During the process, I'm going to be blogging about my experiences with my cooking challenge.  I'll be posting TONS of recipes too!!  

I was so excited about this, I've even recruited my best friend. She is going to be attempting the cooking challenge with her husband. Way too much fun!! 

I've created a Pinterest account and hadn't used it until tonight. OBSESSED. I have SO many recipes pinned. Tomorrow I'm going to attempt one with my cousin Kelli. I'll letcha know how that goes!

If you don't have a Pinterest account, CREATE ONE. LOVE.

Did I mention.....

November is when I knew I'd love him for all my life?
Well, it's the truth.

It started in September, Blossomed into October, and by November we were inseparable

I remember our first November when he went home to visit his family for leave, and we spent HOURS on the phone. He even made his omelets mushroom free, because he knew I hated them. 
Aw, love is sweet.

It's so crazy how quickly time can pass us by. It's been years already? YEARS
(as in MORE than 1? MORE than 2?)

Well, isn't that sweet as can be.   :)


11.11.11 is coming up. How awesome is that? For as long as I can remember, I made wishes at 11:11. Every wish has come true so far. You better believe that on 11.11.11 AT 11:11 I will be making worlds sweetest most epic wish. It should actually be declared 'Best wish day'! 

Happy November!

Darling, Don't be afraid.

I will be brave.
I will not let anythingTake awayWhat's standing in front of meEvery breath,Every hour has come to this.
One step closer. I have died every day waiting for you.Darling, don't be afraidI have loved you for a thousand years. I will love you for a thousand more.

Hearing this song makes me feel all happy inside.

Recently, I've had a rough time accepting that soon I will be thousands of miles away from K. I earn the ribbon for worlds biggest worrier. I'll come out and tell ya, I'm scared. I hug longer, kiss more, and I make sure he knows what my heart is feeling. I have been fighting with my thoughts lately. I've never been this way, and I don't know if it's because I finally had a taste of what 'normal' could be like for us...but boy oh boy...I'lllll tell ya. I'm ready for this to be over, and it hasn't even begun.

He always jokes that I'm like a mother bear protecting my cub. I'd keep him in a bubble if I could. I love him for always being so brave, and standing up for what he believes is right. He's good at making himself useful. Wherever he is, people are quite lucky to be surrounded with his warm heart and kind spirit. He's good at what he does, and as difficult as it is for me...I'm attempting to learn to just let it be. This is what he was intended to do when God gave him life. He's here to protect, and he does a damn good job at it.

That boy turned my world around. He is another part of me, and I pray everyday God gives us many years to learn, grown, and love one another even more than we do now.

Enough of the sappy stuff....

listen to the song, and fall in love.
