Happy Be-lated Thanksgiving to Everyone!

Hi All! So I managed to get out a Thanksgiving blog about...well...looks like 7 hours too late. But for those  who know me well, being late is my thing! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday! As for me, well I endured almost 10 hours working at the bar. I did get to talk to Rob briefly on my drive home. He spent Turkey day playing poker.

Still NO new news to report about our orders yet. Seems this process is going to be painful. I'm hoping now that he holiday is over, we may be able to get some sort of answer with all the higher ups actually in the office working. Will keep you all updated as we know, i promise! I'm off to get my day started, have a good one!

And we wait...

Some of you know that it's that time for Rob and I to pick orders. We talked and agonized over this for months. Not only is the decision difficult but comes with a rough time line as well. As Robs on sea duty right now, he is doing work ups for deployment, later scheduled. We won't to go on this cruise, but he's still in charge of doing the work ups for it with the command. Having said that, he's been gone A LOT the last couple months. And it doesn't stop there, he'll be doing it for several more months. Now after long consideration, we decided to roll the dice, and give recruiting a try. He submitted his application, and this is where the waiting starts. we now have to wait to the info on where we will be stationed for the next 3 years! I know many have asked where and when. I promise to keep this updated with all the info we have! the next few months, we have to lightly renovate our home, get it on the market, sell it, and purchase a house elsewhere. Seems nuts right? Yeah it kinda is, but its the way it is. We have all of this to do and roughly 5 1/2 months in which time to make it happen. Here's where my Navy wife skills better kick in. As it will be pretty busy for us for awhile, I will keep this blog updated as well as I can to keep everyone informed! Just wanted to get the word out now since I've already inquiries!

Welcome to Our Navy Life!

Hello everyone! I thought it to be the time that I set up a blog. We have lots of new things coming in our life, and thought it be easier to share with friends and family this way. For those of you who know, I am much better with starting up websites. So bare with me with the blog, still a little bit new to me!

So here's our story...
