Anyways, first order of business. My wine consumption has greatly increased since B has been gone. Mainly because he hates the smell of wine so I drink beer when we drink together. But also because I quit being a snob and bought a bottle of Trader Joe's wine (1.99/bottle). It's so so good.
This baby holds 1/2 a bottle. It's heavy.
Last night I went to my first ever Growth Group at our church. My group is for military wives and we are reading Bad Girls of the Bible. Yesterday was a 'meet and greet' and I already love every girl there! There are just 9 of us, including the two leaders. I was one of the oldest, at 25. The rest were under 22, except for two other girls who are 27. And I had been married the shortest amount of time. A couple of girls were married to their high school sweethearts, which I thought was so cute. We were all creepy and came home and friended each other on fb, which totally made me smile. Anyways, I can't even express how thankful I am to have these girls...and it is only week 1!
Work this week was long, simply because I had to be there at 5am. But THANKFULLY G woke up is a happy mood all three days. Thank God. She is such a nightmare in the mornings (I can say that w/o feeling bad because I am the exact same way. Just ask B). Thursday was cute because I had on my obnoxious silver sparkly Toms and G flipped out because she has sparkly shoes too!!!!!! So she bounded right out of bed and put on her silver LA Lights and was a happy camper.
Stuff officially started for B at work today, and he already feels exhausted. 5-7 more weeks babe!! But we did get to Skype last night before I passed out, so that was great. His internet connection is pretty horrific but I'm so happy I could kinda make out his face!
Next week I have stuff to go to three nights in a row...I'm so excited! I realize how lame that makes me sound, but I am much happier with a close group of people than tons of randoms. And I treasure every second B and I have together, wether we go out or not. So call me a homebody or just lame, I don't care. I'm a happy little camper!
And some of the BEST news of the week is this: Dana asked me to be her Maid of Honor!! So in honor of us being the most OCD, obnoxious bffs ever, here is a brief montage:
