Deployment Diary: Week 4

Wahoo! We made it a month! I can't begin to tell you how happy it makes my heart. I know it's a small milestone, but know it feels like we're actually making progress! One month down. :)

Since I've been busier with work I didn't exactly take a picture for everyday. But this week we had two girls nights. One was comprised of pina coladas, homemade pizza, and an app-sharing session. The other was spent eating Mexican food and planning our trip to Poland next month. Sunday I had to pull over to the side of the road and take pictures of the sunflower fields by the gate to get on post. It's so beautiful when there are bright blue skies behind the sunflowers! Downloaded iHeartRadio and have been listening to that and Songza nonstop. Luckily our car has an adaptor so I can plug in my iPhone and listen to country music in the car and not hear German commercials! Hallelujah! Got special nails from Self Help so I could hang pictures on our concrete walls. Our diplomas were the first thing I hung.  Last night I got to catch up with my bestie from Clemson. We gushed about our shows, caught up on each others lives, and she shared a yummy recipe with me. :) All in all a pretty good week. Of course it would have been better if my love was here!

Yay! One month closer to him coming home. Those sunflowers are absolutely gorgeous...do you mind if I ask where you're stationed? I haven't seen sunflowers like that in my area. I'm down to one month left, and all of a sudden, time is flying by. I have so much to do before he walks in the door! Hopefully yours will go just as quickly :)

A month is no small milestone! I live right by a Navy/Coast Guard base and so many of the wives count down by months! Don't feel silly about it!

Also - that first girls night with the pina coladas and homemade pizza sounds right up my alley!! It must have been a great night :)
