Well, it's been two months and I figured it's time for an update. Today is my lazy day and I haven't had one of those in a VERY long time. I'm in my last semester of nursing school and holy cow.. it hasn't been too difficult so far, but I feel like I don't have a free second ever. I think my poor husband expected our conversations to be based around his schedule (we both did), but now we can only talk for an hour at 9pm (his 6am) because I have to be in bed by 10 so I can wake up at 5am! Waking up at 6am when you don't have anything planned for your day till 9 isn't the funnest thing. Love you Rich :)

Some of the things I have been doing lately, Kaleb turned 4 in August.

I went down to Hurricane's Peach Days with my sister Heather and her family.

My sister Heidi had her little girl, Adylee (did I get the spelling right this time? ha ha)

Before all of that (sorry, these aren't in order) I went to Washington to visit Rich one more time before he left the states. We did SO much while we were there... The space needle probably isn't worth the $16 per person to go to the top FYI if anyone goes. Unless you REALLY wanna be able to say you've gone up there. I didn't think it was that amazing and there are plenty of other things I'd rather do with $32. Rich's Aunt and Uncle live in Washington so we made a Sunday drive to go visit them. They came to our wedding and I hadn't met them before, or seen them since so it was really good to get to know them better. They have two "dogs" that they love very much, Jasper (picture below) isn't really a dog however.. He's a wolf! Check it out..

With Rich being away, I started doing a little business. I'm not going to go into details, but if you're married or have friends who are getting married and might be interested in bridal shower/wedding gifts let me know :) I have the perfect ideas for those occasions!

Rich has been gone for three months now. It has gone by very fast and very slow at the same time, just like so many things in life. It's really easy to look at and talk about the negatives in situations, so here is my attempt to be positive:

Because of my husband's service...

I get invited to free dinners with prizes. I got two free day passes to the Canyons :)

I get to drive this for a year!

Military discounts.. usually not a huge amount, but hey, it adds up!

Roommates :)

And if that's not enough, I get the satisfaction of knowing that my husband is defending all of our freedoms and gets to wear this uniform every day. What's hotter than that?? ;)

Till next time!
