Little boys.

Here are some of the pictures from the Aquarium!

Landon never looks at the camera anymore.

They have the same hair line! hahaha.

Once again he never looks at the camera.

He cracked me up! He wanted to see EVERYTHING!

So after the Aquarium yesterday we went to Friendlys to eat lunch. Landon and Justin were coloring pictures when Landon announced that he was drawing a picture of himself. He drew two long legs, a belt and then.....a wiener pee. Ohhhhh my goodness I didn't know what to say to him. I think we asked him five times what it was that he drew (now mind you in no way did it resemble a "wiener pee") After him trying to tell us multiple times what it was he finally said "Its just my wiener!" I about died! Justin then went into how we don't draw those things or talk about them in public. I love my child but sometimes I just don't know where he gets the idea to do the things he does. What do you say to something like that? Oh the joy of having a little boy.

My poor husband.

While Justin was underway he smashed his finger. I guess it was so bad that not only did the nail turn black immediately, but his whole finger swelled. The Doc had to stick needles in his nail to drain the blood and when that didn't take care of all of it he had to stick them in to the whole finger. Justin said his finger bled for 15 minutes. Here is a wonderful picture of his finger 2-3 weeks after it happened. Sick isn't it?

MY NEW CAR!!!!!!!!

Here it is my friends! We picked it up today and I'm so stoked! I'm really excited to have my own car. yeah I know now I just need to get driving....I will in time. I really think this is my perfect car and I can't only imagine the adventures this little car will embark on with us in the years to come.

And this is the car I didn't have the heart to make my husband trade in to get mine. We were driving the other day and he informed me that he is going to "run his car into the ground". I couldn't take his manual man sports car and make him trade it in for an automatic SUV. Eh at least I didn't get the baby blue one that I was going to get, I got grey so it would be a little better. Lol how nice of me!

Garden take 1!

So when my parents were in town visiting we decided to garden (oh the little things I miss doing with my daddy). I had this Idea to get an arch and bench and put it over rock. To my surprise everyone thought it was a great idea! Then my dad told me that I should get plants that would grow up and over, so we did. The plants were very little and I thought it would take all summer to see anything happen, once again to my surprise in a month they are huge..ish (well one of them is). Here is a picture of my front garden!

Here is the side that is growing like mad!

The flower that sprouted! Isn't it beautiful!

And this is Justin's flag and gnome. I also added Eagles wind chimes to the arch today. I know I need to weed. Don't judge.

So I will keep this updated with the progress of my new baby, mostly for my mommy and daddy to see.

Dee dee deeeee

Justin is going to start checking my blog so I had to take off what I got him for his birthday....hahaha.

Its so nice to have him home and to feel his warmth in bed beside me again, oh how I have missed that dearly. I'm not ready for him to leave me again but I guess I will have to deal.

On a good note I'm getting a new car!!! A new Hyundai Tucson! I LOVE IT! I will post pictures when we bring it home later this week!

Landon got a bedroom makeover!

So a few months ago Justin and I got a queen bed for Landon. They don't make cute bedding for bigger then a twin so it was really hard knowing what to do. Landon had our old bedding in there for a while. I have been looking for months for something that I think he would enjoy in his room and I finally found it! Here is the bedding Landon now has in his room....its not a picture of his room I will post that later after its all the way I want it! He had a bug theme room before when he had his little bed so this went perfect!

And this is what his sheets look like! I love it!

Happy Aniversary my love!

So I was so busy yesterday that I didn't even notice that it was my anniversary. I don't think I would have even noticed if I wasn't making plans for the rest of the week. I miss my husband and I wish he was here, but its times like this that I remember all the ways he loves me. He had things sent to the house because he knew he would miss that very special day and while I was told to wait to open them he let me open them a few weeks ago while they were in port for a few days. He knows me so well and buys me things he knows will keep my mind off of him being gone. I am head over heels in love with that man and I would be lost without him. I still can't believe how young we were when we met and started dating. Who would have thought the boyfriend I has at 14 would one day be my husband....he says he did, and that he knew it from the start. *sigh* forever doesn't seem like long enough when your with the one you love.

Where we have been!

Where the navy has taken us!
Make yours @

So most of this was from our first navy move...Washington State to South Carolina. It was winter so we didn't go straight over the mountains. Then our move to New York made up most of the rest...and our great vacations!

The Zoo!

With Justin being gone I have been spending a lot of time with friends and it has been just what I needed to keep my mind off of everything. So we went to the Zoo! It was a very small zoo so our goal was to take pictures with every animal statue we saw....I think we did it.

He was waving to his Daddy....we like to take special pictures for him.

He had no idea why we were laughing so poor kid.

We had a great time. After we went to eat at Cracker Barrel and then went to Ikea...what a great day! Landon was exhausted by the end.

Getting started

With us moving around so much and my family not seeing all of the great things we are doing I thought this would be a great way to share with them.

Justin has been gone a lot and will be gone even longer. He will return shortly from a month underway and with that we will only have a short amount of time together. He leaves for what we believe to be a 6-7 month deployment. With him being on the kind of boat that he is we can e-mail but sometimes they are weeks apart. No phone calls unless they are in port. Landon and I will miss him but we knew what we were getting into when he joined the Navy. Wish us luck with the months to come.
