Day 17:

Monday, January 31, 2011

Very busy day editing all the photos from our massive valentines day shoot extravaganza.
I was able to get a lot accomplished though. I hope to get most every thing that I have to get done, done by the end of the week. That would be amazing if I can.

Went to my bothers to day. I am very lucky that they live so close. The last time honey was gone we invented Monday night as our supper fun play night. I go over and watch TV eat dinner and play with my little nephew. Its so much fun to do. So I always look forward to Monday nights.

Sunday, January 30, 2011

I had a very nice relaxing day. The sun was out so the pups played out side most of the day. They love it when they get to do that. I love seeing sunshine I induced smiles on there faces. Its really precious to see.
I spent most of the day watching Pushing Daisies on netflix. Love that show.. Decided that I was going to do nothing to day and stuck to it! Tomorrow starts another busy week.

Day 15:

Saturday, January 29, 2011

I was telling my assistant today about a little black bear that lives, in the woods across the street from my house. He is so very cute. Any way they story moved on to our favorite animals. If you know me then you know my most favorite animal is a pit bull puppy, but did you know that my second favorite animal in the whole wide world is a fruit bat? How can you not love that sweet face??

Kind of reminds me of a pit bull with wings, maybe that’s way I love them so. Honey is very good at finding me stuffed animal fruit bats. I love him!! My next favorite animal is a skunk… Yeah I know but how cute are they??? Did you know that you can have a pet skunk, well you can and they use the letter box… How cute is that?

When we have a baby it will have this costume for sure!

 My next favorite animal the sea turtle… then stingrays….Oh I have so many..
Honey and I saw a sea turtle lay her eggs on the beach, the night of our first date. I knew then that we were ment to be and that I would love him forever!

Did I ever tell you that I LOVE, LOVE, Love animals?? Honeys favorite animals are monkeys, but not just any monkey these little guys…

They are pretty cute!
What’s your favorite animal?

Day 14:

Friday, January 28, 2011

So….. I just want to say that I hate people that poop sunshine and rainbows. Makes me litterly want to punch them in the face. If I could have gone through the phone to day this girl would have needed some medical attention. Honey and I though it would be a nice idea to refinance our home to take advantage of the crazy low rate. However it has been a night mare. With honey so far away I have to take care of stuff. This girl calls me today and at first was like super make me want to vomit valley girl nice….Any one that knows me knows that gets you punched, even when honey is not gone and I am not stretched so thin. Any ways, she tells me that she needs to talk to honey, because I am not good enough….Hang on lady I have a POA…Not good enough, I will scan it and send it you…Then lady then tells me that, it would go faster if he could sign the paper work. Good luck he is in a sand box for a year. I can hardly talk to him, how are you going to??? Finely got it taken care of…. Have to get up supper early so goodnight all;)

Day 13:

Thursday, January 27, 2011

So I usually change my sheets once a week. I have not changed them since honey left 13 days ago.
I have to wash them tomorrow. I might have a nuclear melt down, when I do. My room and my bed still smell like him. So in a sense he is still here, in my head. When I put the new ones on I will spray them with his cologne, but it’s not the same thing…. I shot the cutest little pinup girl today, tats, the hair the whole nine. Her husband left the same time as honey, and she told me that she has not done his laundry or sheets yet and was going to do so today. Needless to say we had a little cry then a little laugh. It’s so funny how most military wives are so connected and we don’t even know each other. Went to pet smart today and loaded the pups up on treats and food. They have been acting out quite a bit since honey left… It usually takes a month or so for them to figure out they are stuck with just mommy, before they level back out. I hope it’s soon though!

Not really that much went on today. Miss honey like crazy…. You never really know how much stuff they do around the house until they are gone. I would do any thing for him to be home with me right now!

Day 11:

Tuesday, January 25, 2011

So last nights hopes of going to bed early did not happen. I am a workaholic apparently. Finely drifted off around 12:00, Then honey was skypeing me. What a pain in the butt that skype has been… He can’t get a singal at when he does its about a minute long then 20 minutes to reconnect. But at lest we got o see each other!! So that was really nice. I feel like I am getting sick……….That really, really sucks!! I have to stay well at lest till next week to busy to feel bad. Wow you know you work to much when you have to have an appointment to be sick.

Day 10:

Monday, January 24, 2011

What a long long night!!! Apparently my youngest pup Stella, decided it was a good ides to eat her blanket. So I was awakened around 12:30 to her throwing it up. I got up cleaned up the mess, cleaned her up. Then it started again, literally throwing up huge chunks of blanket. Thankfully around 5:30 she stopped, and all is well now!

I got to skype with honey today. He took his laptop outside and somehow got a very faint single. So we were able to talk for a few minutes. Thank goodness!! He just knew that I was having a bad day! Makes most of it better, when I get to see his face!!

Should be working because I have a mounting of editing to do. But I am going to go snuggle in my bed and call it a super early night!! Wakeup in the morning ready for the rest of my crazy week.

Can't really hear it that well boobooo!

Day :9

Sunday, January 23, 2011

So time with my sis this weekend was pretty great. I made her do a pinup shoot today. Heehee She is a mommy and does not get to do stuff for her self like she should so it was her bday gift from me, and I finally made her do it. It was really fun to watch her transform for house wife and supper mommy, to sexy rock star vixen. The way she walked out of my studio holding her head up high, was worth a million bucks. Did I mention that I have the best job in the world…. Any whos… I miss honey to day, really badly!! Football is on, and I want so very badly for him to be in his chair screaming at the TV, while I make diner…. I bought stuff today for his V-day box and it will go out tomorrow, lots of yummy goodies!
I lost 2 pounds this week yay! Night I am going to go upstairs with my pups, watch a movie, relax and get ready for the crazy busy week a head of me!

Honey, you are my soulmate, every thing that we have been through for the last 11 years. I still can’t imagine my life without you! You are the first thing that I think of in the morning and the last thing that I think of when I close my eyes. I love that I rock your last name! I love that you are mine, and that I am yours! I love that, I get to grow old with you! Most of all I love that when you return, we finally get to have our babies and our little love story will be complete!

Day 8

Day 8:

Today’s bog is a little early…..

My sisters husband is in the Army and he is way at school. So my sister is in from from Fayetteville.
My mom is going to watch her boys and my fur kids, so that my sister and I can have a break. We are going to stay with our daddy. How fun!! A night with me and my sis spending the night in our child hood home….
Makes me think of days when me and my sister and brother, would stay up all night playing when we should have been sleeping. When your all grown up and have all this responsibility its fun to think of those simple days, when all you had to do was home work and play. I miss that and often think back to the huge oak tree that use to be in my grandparents front yard. I loved that tree, I don’t know what it is exactly that brings me there. But sometimes in my sleep, I am there by that tree, green grass under my bear feet, all is perfect and calm, still. I love that place. It has been years since that tree was there or since my grandparents were alive, our since there house was the way I remember it. I guess things change its this they way the world goes on.

So I know that I had said the ipod song would be something from honeys play list but I think it should be what I feel on the day I write so today’s ipod song is…

Day 7

Friday, January 21, 2011

Day 7:
Wow one week without my love… I am getting used to being by myself a little.. I can’t believe how much room is in my shower when it’s just me, or how much room is in my bed. But I would do anything to be all cramped up with honey again. I found another note to day from that clever little honey bear.

How did he do this?? He must have been stuffing notes for months. He told me that I would never find them all. Every time I find one, I want to have a massive break down, but I just think of him here and it makes me feel happy, like they were meant to do, not sad that he is not here.
CRAZY busy at work I think that we are shooting 6 days straight next week. So thankful for that, I don’t know what I would do if I had to set home and think all day.
I am really hopping that honey has Skype up soon, it was nice to see him, and I have not been able to do that for a few days now.

So I was looking for a playlist song for tonight when I remembered that it was Friday. It was 12 years ago on a Friday night when my husband, then boyfriend played this song for me since then it has become an anthem for us. Ever single Friday for 12 years my honey has woke me up with these words!! “Good Morning Beautiful it’s Friday and I am in love with you!” So I decided that every single Friday the playlist song will be its Friday I’m in love.

Day 6

Thursday, January 20, 2011

Day 6:
Wow what a day…. We had a blast at work today! My assistant and I had to go in today to build our V-day set for this weekend’s shoots. So we started off at home Depot to pick up some lumber, a staple gun, hot glue the usual crafting supplies. It was quit hysterical to see how men look at women in a hardware store. I think 10 guys asked us if we need help, like we were lost or something… So Taylor and I decided that next time we make a hardware run it’s in high heels.. We got or loot and headed out to my truck to find that it did not fit???? It took us about 5 minutes of let’s try this, maybe this… Then like magic we got it to fit. We crammed it in and it felt like supper Mario brothers Mario cart. But we got the job done and the set looks amazing!!
I can’t believe how fast time is flying; the day flew the week for the most part flew. As much as I hate that time, and my life is going so fast, I hope that it continues to do so for the next year. Oh remember those little notes that honey left behind for me to find. Well I found one to day in the bathroom of my studio. That honey is a clever little bear. I love him, and I miss him so very much!

I am supper busy with work witch is great!! I am so blessed to be able to do what I love to do every single day. Plus it helps me keep my mind busy. I started a new Photoshop class by one of my all-time favorite photographers. Yippy!! Happy dance!!! So I am supper excited about that. I love to learn new and awesome ways to do my job.
So I broke a nail to day I have been getting them done, honey likes them, and my assistant talked me in to doing them. I love her by the way. Heehee… Any ways, that lead to me literally gnawing them off my nails. So I guess that’s one good thing about honey being gone.. No nails, no shaving legs. Heehee…
American Idol tonight my guilty pleasure;)
Tonight’s song by random iPod playlist is…. Goodness could I love him any more?

Day 4

Tuesday, January 18, 2011

Day 4:

Not a bad day at all today. I got some really great sleep after I talked to honey and he told me that he was nice and safe, and getting settled in.  Then I got a bunch of editing done, still have a ton to do though.
Honey made me a play list of songs to listen to while he was gone. I was listing to it today and I LOVE him. We really are made for each other! The play list is so me, no one else could think that a song about zombies is romantic, but him. The best playlist ever! So I am going to try and put up a video or song from my list for the next 44 days. Heehee so FUN!

Day 3

Monday, January 17, 2011

Last night a real good friend of mine reminded me of something that I had long ago forgotten about.
The passing of the EGA.
 This little gold EGA. This was passed down to a new wife, on her first deployment as a sign of strength and courage. A little token to let you know that someone had stood in your very same shoes. I was passed this little EGA in 2000, 4 months after our wedding for my 1st deployment. The longest 8 months of my life. New wife, new house, and remember no internet back then, no skype… Honey was a Recon Platoon Sargent, in Kosovo and they were on the move the whole time. I think on that deployment I talked to him 3 times in 8 months. That little gold charm around my neck, gave me a little peace and comfort… A few years later, I meet my friend she was a new wife, getting ready to go through her first deployment. So I passed the charm and the story down to her. Well this got me thinking last night as I remembered this little EGA. How far its journey has been, how many wife’s had it brought some comfort to. If it could talk what kind of stories might it hold? I would like to think that it continues to be passed down and that it has somehow brought comfort to every wife that it has been in contact with… Just a little precious piece of gold on a simple chain yet somehow linked to every marine wife that has worn it. Because only a military wife knows what it is like to were these shoes.

Day 3:
Wow only three days…. Dang I was really hoping to wake up today to 300 at least..
Today I went to lunch and it was great! Then grocery shopping. Yuck! I hate doing it without honey, really, really hate it. Shopping for one pretty much stinks. We love to go shopping together and cook together I think that is one of our most favorite things to do! So I miss that. However do to that yummy cooking and the fact that I set on my booty most of the day editing photos. I feel a little out of shape. So I am only doing supper healthy foods and, I am going to start banging out the exercise. So when honey returns for his R&R witch will hopefully be in August. I can be a perfect 113. I start tomorrow at 154 I will keep you posted on that every Sunday when I weigh myself.

Day 2

Sunday, January 16, 2011

Day 2:

So all I can say is that I would like to kiss the Skype people on the mouth. Amazing!!I between Skype and Facebook this is not so bad. Don’t get me wrong, it still sucks! But this makes it a little better.
So today when I talked to honey, he told me that there is a bunch of note hiding all over the house for me! I am trying to resist and not go on an all-out manhunt for them, and just let them come to me.

I did all the laundry to day and realized that it was the last time that I would do his for a year, so that made me pretty sad. I then got it all put away….Yes honey if you read this, I put it all away. I am famous for a stack of clean laundry on the end of the bed. I don’t really know why that is. I wash, I dry, I fold….Then honey puts them away, or the other way around. That’s one of the things that I miss the most when he is gone. We are such a good team, and he takes such good care of me that I never have to think of certain things. Like taking out the trash, now I have to remember to take it out to the road, change the oil in my car. Little things like that, which makes a huge difference when someone is gone.
I get to go to lunch with one of my best friends tomorrow, her husband is gone as well so it will be nice to have someone in the same boat to talk with and get our mind off of everyday things!

Day 1

Saturday, January 15, 2011

Day 1:
Last night I feel asleep pretty fast from pure exaltation. However I woke up around 3:00 am, still half a sleep I went down stairs to look for him. Realized he was gone, cried.
Went down stairs this morning to let the dogs out, and eat breakfast. Something caught my eye in there room… My honey wrote a note on the wall, how sweet, I cried. Then I found that he had done the same on the calendar in the Kitchen, cried some more! I was feeling pretty down most of the day. Then I got a Skype call..  It was honey, holly cow, really! He is in Ireland and had some time to Skype me. Amazing! We really can’t get over the fact that we can Skype; we have never been able to do this on a deployment before. I have to say that this digital age is amazing! I can’t wait for him to get in country, so that we can do it all most every day.
I found this very cute place online that sells deployment candles the last time that he was gone. They smell really good! I could not remember the site though, but I hunted them down.

Photos From last night....


The beginning...

Friday, January 14, 2011

I have been married to my marine for 11 years. During the last 11 years we have been through many deployments, work ups, schools and the list goes on… This is our 5th major deployment since 2002 and our longest 365 days. Wow 365 days, just typing it makes my heart race..
After all the good byes were said and those American buses drove off. I was left alone with my thoughts as I drove home an idea popped in to my head…. Start a blog.. So here I am, for the next 365 days I am going to tell it all, the good, the bad, the ugly. Every day I will write about what’s going on in my life. Day one tomorrow with photos from tonight.
Good night every one sleep tight.
