For Military Merit

As you all know my husband is back from his 3rd deployment. On this last deployment the truck he was in hit an IED. My husband got the worst of it from hitting his head, another was injured from jamming his knee. Everyone walked away.

Hope you arent queasy. Some people cant believe he would send me these kind of pictures. Im not one to put my blinders on though. I know its dangerous. Hes Infantry. Its what they do. Alot of jobs in the Army arent dangerous. His is and I realize this. Anyways last month he was awarded the Purple Heart.

While Im catching you up on my Army wife life, he was also promoted to Sergeant in October! Finally!

The Ones That Got Away

If you are anything like me I have a gazillion favorite things on Etsy. I try to keep it around 7 or 8 pages and no more. One of my OCD features. I delete sold things generally, or once in a blue moon I change my mind about an item. Sometimes I covet things FOREVER lusting after them waiting for that special moment when I have enough money to make it mine. It GUTS me whenever I see one of my favorites has been sold. Dont get me wrong. Im happy for the seller. I really am. Im just crushed that I couldnt have been the sale. These are the things I loved so much I cant even delete them from my favorites. Some of these things were sold the DAY I got the funds to buy them. These are the ones that got away.

Remembering Pearl Harbor

Today is the 70th anniversary of the bombimg of Pearl Harbor. The surprise attack in 1941 killed more than 2,400 Americans and damaged eight of the Hawaiian naval base's battleships. Ive always wanted to go to Pearl Harbor and pay my respects to those who lost their lives that day.

If we're ever lucky enough to be stationed in Hawaii for the Army I intend to do just that.
