Deployment Update!

Helloooooo! Hope my sweet followers are doing GREAT! I have been trying to stay really busy lately. I really only hear from Duke about every 2 weeks now. But, I still feel very fortunate about that. I know of someone who is three months into a deployment with no phone call. That makes me sad!

I DID get to talk to him yesterday though!!!!! He sounded like he was doing really good. And --- great news! --- hopefully he will be getting promoted very soon! :) I am so excited for him.

On another note, I have somewhat learned how to crochet!!!! Yay! I have been working really hard at making myself try new things. Haha. That's always a challenge. So when I actually get good at it, I will have to post some photos.


I've also spent a lot of time on Pinterest lately. It is so addicting. I found and LOVE this:


I hate spiders.

Did everyone have a good Veteran's Day? Mine was lovely. I went to a parade and a ceremony afterwards; I bought a luminary for Duke and it was put with many others at the courthouse steps in town. The Marine Corps birthday was also this week! :) I am very excited to see the photos of all of the Marine Corps balls that everyone went to.

Is everyone getting excited about the holidays? I am! :)

I'm Back!!!! :)

Hello there! I know I haven't blogged in the last couple of weeks....but I honestly had a horrible week last week dealing with this whole deployment thing. Yes, it got the better of me. But....good news.....this week I have a much better attitude! :) Haha. I have taken a couple of painting classes in the last week and had sooooo much fun. It really gets my mind off of things and I loooove it. But, I realized that I am spending all of my extra money on classes, which would be fine except I really need to start saving money for when Duke comes home because I will be moving and will really need to have some money saved. Sooooo....I went and bought my own paints and supplies and created this:

I love it. It was from a photo of Duke on our wedding day. (below)
