Catching up.....

So yesterday was hubby's birthday! I so hate birthday's that are spent sooo far apart! But I have to tell you we have such a wonderful command unit!! I got this email yesterday from my hubby -

Hi baby. Well I got a huge surprise, LTC Simmons and MAJ Mike Maddox my battle buddy, lured me in with a staff meeting at 1200hrs. So I am getting all ready for it, loading slides up etc, I noticed that there were a lot of people in the room who normally did not attend meetings, didn't even register why in my head. And then suddenly there erupted a very loud Happy Birthday song. I about fell out of my chair.

I was served a very yummy cake from the Dining facility staff. I was quite in shock and speechless for a second.

Thank you again to such awesome leadership! I am so glad that if I couldn't spend the day with my hubby that your guys took care of him!


In addition to it being my hubby's birthday this past weekend I also spent a weekend in HOT LANTA with my very best friend! We had a "FRG" (family readiness group) conference where we learned about a ton of resources both new and old for military families!

Additionally they had an awards banquet where my BFF won a HUGE award! YOU ROCK TRACY!!!

Before leaving, we made sure to get a photo of us together:

I then sent this photo to my husband who hasn't seen a photo or me since April - he was shocked by how much weight I had lost! I am like, "How can you tell, it is only from my breast up!" To which he replied, "I can see it in your face!" BAHAHAHA!!!

Hope you have a GREAT week!

Until Next Time!
