I'm Baaaaack ;)

It's 3 am and the hubby and I are still awake. I are on his work schedule (he works Nights), and he has this weekend off. We probably won't go to bed until 5am-ish. He will sleep until probably 2ish and I will be up around noon probably earlier. I don't sleep much, and that's actually a lot of sleep for me. I don't know if I ever mentioned it.. but I have a mild case of insomnia and can go without sleep for a while.

We went and watched the "A-Team". It was super funny. Kept us laughing. We wanted to go see "Grown Ups", but Cinema Cafe in Hampton isn't showing it, so we're going to wait for it.
Now, I'm blogging.. while he is playing the newest UFC game for XBox. I think he's addicted. Thank goodness it's a rental. haha

Nick's family was in town Sunday night through Wednesday morning. My house is still a mess (hence the reason I have yet to post pictures of the new place!). We enjoyed them being here, but with all the stress we've been under.. it was good to have this weekend to ourselves so we could relax. Finally getting some time with the husband since he's been back in port. Much needed.

It was great seeing his sister. We had not seen her in over a year and a half. She's married to a Soldier and they are stationed in Italy. We finally got to meet our Nephew! He turned a year old earlier this month. He's such a cutie.. a chubby little cutie! He made me want a baby even more. And seeing my husband with him was hilarious, made me smile. He was so scared to hold him... and even play with him for fear he would drop him. His sister had to force him to hold the baby. Tuesday he started to warm up to the little guy. I smile just thinking about it. We took the family to the beach. Our nephew loved it. It was his first beach trip. Enjoy some pics ;)

Isn't he adorable?
Yes. He is.

PS. I'm Back! I have a smile on my face and my positive upbeat (sometime overly positive) attitude back. Whew! Sometimes we just need a moment to step back and recollect ourselves.

Any time that I feel down, or start to feel sorry for myself.. I re-read this quote:
When you're struggling with something, look at all the people around you and realize that every single person you see is struggling with something, & to them, it's just as hard as what you're going through.
 I know I've used the quote before in a post. It really helps me. I read that quote and It makes me want to be a better person, to help people. Helping others makes me happy. Which is why I have and am learning so much about the Navy life. I like to think that I have helped several ladies, and hope to continue that. In all honesty, Helping others, helps me. It's one of the reasons I have created my blog.  I will also be applying for an ombudsman position with my husband's ship. Finger's crossed. (oh yeah, failed to mention.. I didn't make the FRG board. But that doesn't mean I won't be involved. Congrats to the ladies who did make it!)

Thank you to all my lovely followers. It means a lot to have you as a reader. I'm sorry I have been somewhat of a recluse lately. I haven't been stopping by many blogs lately, but now that the stress is residing, I will get back to my normal routine ;)

Oh! I will be hosting a new competition soon. Bigger prizes than the last one. I don't care for the whole numbered post things.. So, it will be similar to my last competition since it was so successful, but on a different topic of course ;). When I hit 150 followers, I will begin the whole setting up the next competition and prizes.

Thanks for Reading! :D <- Big cheesey smile


  1. Your nephew is such a cutie! :) I'm so glad to hear you are feeling better and have a smile on your face!

  2. I love that quote. You may think that you have it tough, but there is always someone who has it worse. Everybody goes through tough times. Plus, someone might think they are the only one going through something...and if they get to talk to people, they have been through the same thing.

  3. I went to see Grown Ups last night with the family. Def worth going to see. And if you can go Mon-Thurs, AMC Lynnhaven has $5 tickets and a military discount.

  4. Umm....where is your button at?!?!? At least while your NOT could make yourself a nifty little button.

  5. Miss Brittney, Thank you. Cooper is a trip. It was awesome when He reached for me when he got here. Never met him and he reached for me while my sis-in-law was holding him. He takes a while to warm up to people, but it was instantly with me.

    Whitney, Very true. That quote is a reminder of that.

    R, Just told the hubby about AMC Lynnhaven, and I think Wednesday or Thursday we are going to go there. Thank you!

    Amber.. I need to get on that! I'm slacking! lol OH! How bout I told the hubby that when he deploys.. I may have to make a trip to visit you!

  6. Your little nephew is adorable! He looked like he really enjoyed the beach! I love his little hair, so cute :)

  7. Glad to hear your back. And even happier that you're happy again haha!

    Your nephew is so freakin' adorable...looks like a successful beach trip. :)

  8. your nephew is such a cutie pie :) Glad you had a good time with your family :) Glad to have you back. :)

  9. Great to find another military blogging lady! ♥
