Changes









I just wanted to let everyone know that since Lucas is home, I wanted to still keep with the whole blog thing, but just in a different aspect. Since we are constantly moving and our life is changing all the time at the drop of a hat, I would use this as a tool for our family and friends to know what we are up to. So the adventure continues! =)
We finally made it home after visiting our family in Minnesota. Let's just say the vacation didn't necessarily start off the best as we got in a car accident only 40 miles from home. It was the most scariest thing I have ever been through and I am still having nightmares about it! We ended up in the ditch after rolling the car twice and conditions were not the best out. I am just glad that we all made it out alive and nothing too major happened to us, but the car was another story. Long story short, Lucas got a new car...one that he has been having his eyes on for a while and I am glad that he is happy! We all are!
Our trip was great. It is always nice to come home to family and friends after so long. We really did miss everyone! Our trip seemed so short, like always, but we will be back soon I'm sure. Hopefully they can come out and see us in this beautiful weather and not -7 degree weather...lol. Either way...we loved being home, but are glad to be back "home" in Cali. Lucas already left to go 4 wheeling today (only been home for 10 hours!) as he hasn't been 4-wheeling for so long.
Hope everyone is staying warm back in Mn...just know that we miss you and love you!

Good To Have Him Home

I thought this day would never come...but it felt good to see Lucas finally after all this time! It is a little weird having him and I am still getting use to the fact, but it is a good weird...it is nice to have the company around and just have him here. Duke and Bandit have not stopped following him around and they care less about me right now...lol. Overall I am very happy and will be even more happy when we make our trip to MN tomorrow bright and early, for a vacay to see our family! MN and freezing cold weather here we come! BRRRRRR!

Today's The Day...FINALLY!

Well today is finally the day that Lucas gets home and a long string of disappointments, but I lived! =) Has hard as this deployment was, I have learned so much about my life and our life together. I could be more proud of Lucas for all he has accomplished so far and highly jealous he got to travel the world! The sights were amazing and it is truly and lifetime experience that he will never forget. Through 6 months and 3 weeks we have grown stronger not only together, but as individuals. We have endured things that most have not had to endure, and it has only strengthened our love for one another.
Lucas is on a plane as we speak, on his long 14+ hour flight (ew). This still seems to surreal to me and I don't think it has hit me yet. It will tonight when I have to go pick him up late...around midnight! Pinch me, is this a dream?!

Confirmation


I just got confirmation not only from Lucas but from one of the commanders that the boys will be arriving home sometime late Monday night...around 11 p.m. or so. That is good news and I really hope that it doesnt change and if it does I just hope it has something to do with being early rather than later. It feels good having that confirmation and knowing that things are starting to happen, but my butterflies and nerves are kicking in. It's been SO LONG! =)

Over a 180 days (6 months and 3 weeks)...can't believe this is coming to an end...but I'm so freaking glad.

O Brother What A Headache

What a headache the end of this deployment has been. I thought we were sailing smoothly, but just when I thought that, the rug got pulled out from underneath me. Why does the military proceed to change dates a hundred million times? Why can't they ever be right the first time? I'm not going to lie, but I was pretty disappointed the first time it got changed, but after the second I got a little upset (little breakdown), but it's because I'm so ready for it to be done and I'm anxious to get home as well. As of right now, I just move from day to day expecting news, but not a whole right now. The window for them to come is between the 9th and the 15th, but was told to expect lots of changes...scared to know what that means, but we will see. Wishful thinking for the 9th or this weekend! Time will tell, but he has to come home EVENTUALLY right? LOL...Keep ya posted when I know...

7 Years And Counting

Lucas and I met 7 years ago on New Years Eve/Day at my cousins party. Seems like it just happened yesterday and I can remember what we were both wearing, the conversation and most importantly the feelings I had after meeting him...my life has never been the same since! It is hard to believe that it has been that long so far, but I am only looking forward to many more! I could not imagine my life without him (well I am living my life right now without him so I am getting a taste of it and I hate it!). Love you Lucas!

To everyone: Happy New Years and may we have many more together!
