What a nice day!

I am loving the weather today! We’re at 75 degrees right now and we’re only supposed to get up to a high of 80, yay! The sun is shining and it’s a beautiful day here. I’m thinking Snuggle Bug and I should go out and do something but I don’t know what. Maybe we’ll make a trip to the park or something; it just seems a shame to not enjoy this kind of weather!

In other news we’re in the deployment home stretch. I am so ready to get this done and knowing that we’ve got just a couple of months left is relief. At the same time it is still far enough away that it feels like time is dragging by as slowly as it possibly can. It’s been a long year and I’m just ready for life to be normal again. I know the hubby is more than ready to get home to me and his little Snuggle Bug. I’ve started my to do list so I can make sure I have enough time to get everything done that I want/need to before he gets home. I know half of it is stuff that he won’t care about, like cleaning out the car and finding a new comforter for the bedroom, but it will make me feel good getting it done. But we’re just going to keep counting down and soon this will all be behind us!

In other news, Snuggle Bug seems to be making some progress towards walking….finally! We’re still not there yet but hopefully soon since she is 17 months as of yesterday. She is using her push toy stroller to walk and getting about on all fours on her feet rather than her knees. I’m so ready to see her walk but I honestly think she is waiting for daddy. She refused to stand up for months and then in the two weeks he was home for his leave she was up and cruising like nothing. She and her daddy just share a special bond and she really trusts him. So I hope she’ll walk soon but it wouldn’t shock me if she waited on her daddy….stubborn little girl she is.

My blogging has suffered recently due to my current class and I’m sorry. When I get a spare moment in the evenings it’s generally devoted to getting my coursework done then the housework after that so by the time it is all done I’m just ready to stare into space on the couch before falling asleep. But with luck my life will get more interesting soon and I’ll find the time to update more because I love blogging!

Oh yeah! I can’t forget to add these adorable photos of Family Day on post last weekend. Snuggle Bug just looks so cute with her little ponytail and she finally has long enough hair for me to do it!


  1. Oh my goodness, your snuggle bug is so precious.. great pics! Here's hoping the remaining time before you hubby gets home goes quickly. What a great reunion that will be.

    Take Care,

    She's so cute! Snuggle Bug is a perfect nickname for her :)

    I hope the time goes by fast for all of you until he gets home.
