Hangin' with my peeps

Well, I was wrong about what time Josh was leaving. I actually got to spend the whole day with him. I just took him to the squadron about ten minutes ago. We had a pretty good day. We hung out and ordered pizza and I washed all of his ABU's. I wanted to make sure everything smelled as nice as it could be. For those of you that don't know, the middle east is a stinky place. And for some reason, all of their stuff ends up smelling like it over there. So I wanted him to have nice smelling clothes for as long as possible. Anyway, enough about that.

I did take some pictures of all three of us. I need a remote for my camera! Then I could do more shots together. The self timer is way too difficult to use with a DSLR camera. It's kinda hard to explain. I need a remote.

As far as how I'm doing, I'm fine! I feel a little guilty for feeling so fine. I guess I'm used to this? I don't know. What it really comes down to is that I feel like this isn't really SO bad and that some families have it WAY worse. I mean, 6-7 months is really not that bad compared to 12-18 months. How can I really complain or whine about my husband deploying when there are those that are dealing with far worse? Plus, I feel secure in my marriage enough to handle something like this. It's a fact of military life. I am bummed that Josh isn't going to be able to see Wyatt grow up in the next 6 months. That's a lot of time in a baby's life... but I'm thankful that Wyatt is too young to understand. Secretly, Josh and I get excited about deployments because it means more money. We like saving like psychos and then buying something we need or really want at the end of the 6 months. I mean, BUDGET MANIA kinda saving. It's really fun to see how much I can scrape and scrounge. It becomes an obsession. So, there are some benefits.

Also, I'm going to dedicate the time that Josh is gone to working out and bringing sexy back.

Oh, and I'm making the 4 hour drive back home tomorrow. My cousin's are home and we're having a coming home party. One of them is about to deploy so it's extra special I think. I have to go and support him. I'll be sure to take a trillion pictures.


  1. Hey Jess! I didn't see your formspring up, but I have a (weird) question. How were you able to wait on conceiving in the first yrs of marriage? I'm not even engaged and the longing for babies has already kicked in, ha. xo

    ps; These pics are beautiful! You are a brave mom/wife.

  2. Yay! It'll be good to see you. Tom texted me and really did leave at 5AM, so he's on schedule. Make sure you share all your photos with me, cause you know I'm lame like that.

  3. hey anonymous, i got rid of my formspring because no one ever used it. BUT! i waited sorta because i had to? i don't know. for awhile there i didn't even want any kids. and wyatt was an accident (but a wonderful one). i have no idea how it didn't really happen though until now. i was only on birth control for about a year of our marriage (i'm on it now though). i truly believe that it was an act of God. my dad died shortly after having wyatt and it gave him a lot of joy, so i think wyatt was a gift for him.

  4. :))) Beautiful pictures! I loved the pictures of you and your hubs.. and the mirror ones of wyatt! so flippin cute!

  5. I love your response to Anonymous and these pictures are beautiful <3

  6. I adore your reply to anonymous. That makes me teary and warm.
