Babies, Babies And More Babies!

My cousin Ian and his girlfriend Lindsey had their first baby girl today, Finally! We all have been patiently awaiting her arrival as she was 2 weeks over her due date and Lindsey went in to be induced yesterday morning and after a rough night, Fynlee made her way into the world at 10 a.m. this morning. I heard she has lots of hair, chubby cheeks, and looks just like her mommy. I can't wait to see pictures of her as I am sure she is gorgeous! Congrats to you both and our new addition to the family!!!

Upcoming New Addition

We couldn't be more happy to announce that we are expecting our first child in mid December (estimated date since we haven't got the official date yet). I haven't gone to the doctor yet as I am waiting for Luke to get home (be home Thursday) so we can experience all these new first things together and he didn't want to miss it for the world. We along with family are so excited as it was very unexpected, but well over due I suppose! :) Thanks for all the support and we can't wait to experience the next chapter of our lives together.

Weekend Travels

Lucas has been gone for about 3 weeks to Yuma, Arizona which is only about a 2 1/2 hour drive from San Diego, so with much dread and excitement, I made the drive after getting off work late yesterday to meet him. It was really good to see him and Duke and Bandit were even more excited to see hm! ;) So we all stayed off base in a really nice hotel, completing the night with an awesome dinner at Logan's Roadhouse! Yum, Yum! (It was my favorite in North Carolina and I haven't seen or ate at once for over a year, so it was WELL overdue...lol) The hotel provided us with a great breakfast and we were off to the shopping center for a quick trip. However, as I was in the store shopping, Bandit had managed to jump out of the window of my car, come into the store and find me! It was pretty funny seeing Lucas running after him, but embarrassing at the same time! ;) We just spent the rest of the afternoon at the park with the dogs before departing late afternoon. I'm finally back home and I am so tired, but it was worth the drive just to spend less than 24 hours with my man! :) Now I just have 3 more weeks to go before he gets back....

Happy Golden Birthday Karlee Bella

Today is our nieces birthday and she is turning 4, which would make it her golden birthday. She is pretty excited about it and I am glad that our present made it to her in time. Where has the time gone seriously? I remember like it was just yesterday (sound like an old women) when I was holding her in my arms and what a proud "mi mi" I just became.

These random visits home make me realize what I have missed out on, but Karlee and I share a special bond like best friends, we pick up right where we left off and I am grateful she has known who I am. Sounds horrible huh? Today is bitter sweet for me, I have no been able to be home for one of Karlee's birthdays, but I am hoping to break that streak one day...soon! ;) So, today I am a proud mi mi and couldn't be more excited for her. She is perfect in every way and I can't wait to see her grow even bigger! Love ya Bella and Happy Birthday!

CONGRATS On Your Promotion!


Today was a really big day for Lucas (for us) and his career in the Marine Corps as he got promoted to Staff Sergent today! How exciting! He has worked so hard to get to this point, putting in A LOT of long days, sweat, blood and tears for his job and squadron...and it has all paid off. I could not be more proud of him because I know first hand how much he wanted and worked for it, so Congrats babe. I wish I could have been there for your ceremony, seems like we are missing out on more things, but we will celebrate when we can...hopefully I will be able to come visit soon. Just wanted everyone to know the good news, and no this isn't an April Fools Day joke, hahaha. Lucas, just know we are all proud of you and love you tons!
