If you've been around for a while, you may or may not enjoy this post so I give you permission to leave my blog now. =) If you're new, this post is for you!!! I hope you've taken the time to look around my blog, especially at the "About" page. That's pretty much me in a nutshell. There are things on that page, though, that aren't quite up to date.
Joe and I just moved to Hawaii! We are so excited to be here, but we are soooo ready to have a place of our own again. Luckily, the Army is holing us up in a hotel until we get housing but there's only so much hotel living you can take before you go bonkers. I'm starting to get stir crazy already!!! We are going to view a house on a military reservation that's sort of close in a week, but we're not sure if we are going to accept it. It all just depends on how long it will take Joe to get to/from work and how close grocery stores and things like that are. I prefer to shop at the commissary just because it's so much cheaper. If it takes me a while to get to the commissary and I supposedly have on-post housing, I am not going to be a happy camper.
The hardest part about being here is being so incredibly far from family and friends. The time difference is just ridiculous! I'm constantly trying to figure out what time it is in OK/AR - where my parents, Joe's parents, and my bestie Melissa live - and what time it is in NC, where the rest of Joe's family lives. We are 5 hours behind OK/AR and 6 behind NC. It's difficult. I mean, it's 1000 here so my day is really just starting and it's 1600 in NC so their day is basically over. Bleh! I also really, really miss my
What else is there to tell? I think I'm just going to go with some random information since randomness is my strong suit. =)
Joe and I have will have been married for 2 years this June.
We still act like complete dorks and like couples who have been dating for 2 minutes. =)
I am a Christian, and I am trying to live the life that God wants for me. It's sometimes a difficult road. He never said it would be easy - just worth it.
My bestie is someone who I've known since I was 11 and have had an on-again-off-again relationship with ever since then.
I am seriously attached to my [almost 5 month old] niece, Eden, who I think is the prettiest baby ever. [I'm sure this will change when I have a baby...]
I love to read. My 2 favorite authors are Nicholas Sparks and Karen Kingsbury. I own every book Nicholas Sparks has ever written and have them on display at my house. Well, I did before we moved. I'm working on reading Karen Kingsbury's Baxter series, and highly recommend all of her books.
Dishes are my least favorite chore, although laundry is slowly climbing up that list.
I am terrified of spiders. Illogical, maybe but they're creepy.
I get paranoid when I stay at home by myself at night. Being an Army wife has not helped this in the least.
I have baby fever...enough said.
I like to bake, but I don't always have the best luck with it.
Thanks to my Nana, I learned to cook at an early age and my hubby has enjoyed very few burned dinners. I'm sure he loves her for that. =)
I'm lucky enough to feel like my husband's family is my own. Not all people have in-laws like that.
I love to write [obviously] and would love to make a career of it. I just don't know where to start!
When I do have babies, I want to be a SAHM. Before I got married, I always thought that I would work like my mom did. She did such a great job, I thought that I could too. Now, I couldn't bear the thought of someone else watching my babies grow. God has an amazing way of changing your heart.
Well, that's just a little bit about me!! Hope you've enjoyed my blog so far and continue to stick around for our adventures in Hawaii!!
