Back to normal

So I guess I should update since it's been forever!

I drove back to Florida on August 5th, stayed with family for a few days, then moved into our new apartment on the 11th. It's amazing here, I love it! Even though it's smaller than our house we had on base, it makes up for it with all the upgrades throughout. We won't be here for too much longer anyways so I think we can handle the tinyness. :)

Chris was due home August 28th, but their plane got delayed thanks to Hurricane Irene. Only a day thank the lord, or else I would have flipped. So the 29th was the day! I was soooo excited! I made him a sign for the front door (tried to find the picture but I guess I deleted it?), and spent the last week getting the apartment all neat & tidy. I think I got about 5 hours of sleep total the last night, and woke up around 7am cuz I was so anxious. His plane wasn't due to land 'til 2:30, so I had alot of waiting around that morning. I got ready and headed to the airport 45 minutes early just in case he landed early. A bunch of people showed up to welcome them home which was awesome! When he finally landed, I stood over where he'd be coming out and just waited & waited... When I saw him, my heart stopped. I don't even know the words to describe the feeling during a homecoming.. Amazing pretty much sums it up. I ran up to him and squeezed as hard as I could for like 5 minutes. Once he got his bags, we headed home :) The dogs were so excited to see him, Brady wouldn't stop giving him kisses, and Duncan did his happy pee, right on Chris's stomach lol.

Fast forward almost 3 weeks (which flew by!) We've done tons of shopping, and buying things for our new apartment, so not much to really say about that. He is back to work today. But it's only for this weekend, and Wednesday-Thursday.. Then he goes back on leave and we go on our cruise!

I'm off to start making dinner so it'll be done in time for him to be home! :)
