I'm Back... well sort of....

Ok so here is the skinny, I want to go ahead and fill you in on a HUGE announcement and then that way you will know what is going on with me and my life - and hopefully you will not get tooo upset in the next few weeks if I miss a day here or there posting!!!

So drum roll please.....

As most of you know Hubby is "over there" serving our country. He is coming home for his leave in about three weeks!!! Whoo Hoooo!!! Ok, so most of you know this already - this isn't the announcement.... What you don't know is that Hubby and I haven't actually "lived" together in the same house for more than 30 days since about Oct 2004. He has been out of the USA more than he has been in....

Well (and this is the announcement)... when he comes home this time.... he will be here to stay for a long while!!! WHOOOO HOOOOO!!! Long while - in like more than a year or two HOPEFULLY!! (I say hopefully cause you never can say for sure what the military is going to do!!!! I mean hey we are living in a country that is at war right now!)

So when hubby gets here in a less than THREE WEEKS... he will have almost a month of R&R and then he will begin a job at a near by Army Base!!!!

How EXCITING AND SCARY at the same time!!! I am so excited that he is coming home!!! To stay for a while!! When he first pop the question on Dec 23rd, 2001 - I was the one who said I NEVER wanted to be a military wife.... Here we are 69 months later, and he has been gone 40 of those 69 months!!! Wow!! It is scary when you look at the actual numbers!!

Now, what does that mean to you... well that means for the next three weeks I am bust my butt trying to get my house ready for hubby to come home, it means I am trying to remember how to be a "house wife" again... (I realized that I don't remember what I use to cook for dinner!! I mean I know I USE to cook... but I can't remember WHAT I use to cook!!!)

Then for the month of Oct, we will be going on a road trip, having family come into town for a week, and just trying to get to know each other again. So..... Please if I am hit and miss for the next month and a half you will know why!!!! Come Nov. - hubby will be working at his new job - and hopefully everything will be back on track!!!

Don't give up on me and my blog... I plan to keep on moving forward! I have some major big plans "In the Works" for Beloved Keepsakes - and you are not going to want to miss them I promise!!! Hopefully I will not miss more than a day or two here or there blogging for the next month and a half.... but if I did miss - I wanted you to know why!

So for today - I thought I would share with you a TERMS RESTRICTED FILE.... this means if you download this file you are agreeing to the TOU - if you do not know the terms of use - you can download it over on the left hand side... ! The password is IAGREETOTOU.

One of the things hubby loves to do is SURF! Since we only live about 25 min away from Tybee, we own two surf boards and a jeep with a surf board rack! So this file was done in honor of hubby!

Hope you can use it, just a simple silhouette - you can download it in the following formats!

Sorry this file is no longer available here...
You will be able to purchase it at Paperthreads soon!

Until Next Time!

Wow Lori that's awesome! But it's going to be hard having him there all the time I know my husband worked out of town the first 5 years of our marriage and then he came home and he's all the time... It was an ajustment but well worth it!! Hang in there and it ok to miss a few days (I hope since I miss a fewon my blog)??

Hi Lori. Thanks for the file, it is so cute, dude!
As for the hubby part, don't sweat it.
Yes, adjustment for sure, but you and him will be like newly weds and then settle in.
He won't care about a "house wife" he wants to come home to you!
Cook??? That's why God made take-out!!! LOL
I am so happy that he will be in the US for a while.
I pray for him and all our service people to come home safe and sound....soon!
Hugs and don't worry about the blog, we will be here when you are!
