I have a love/hate relationship with the "boat" smell. On one hand its just smells dirty and anything it touches has to be washed IMMEDIATELY. But then again its almost comforting. Like I know hes home when I smell it. When Justin left I kept one of his work shirts tucked in a drawer for when I really missed him (I know its kinda gross), but I also kept a clean one with his cologne on it to (redeem myself?). Is the boat smell just a sub thing? Or do carriers smell just as bad? Justin says it smells like that due to the filtering system on the boat.....I just think no one showers.

In other news. I love my husband being home! I'm actually warm when I go to sleep now! My days of wearing socks to bed are over! But I hate how cold it is! Its 11 degrees outside right now!!!! I'm really missing South Carolina at the moment.

OK I'm off to wash all of Justin's deployments clothes. Wish me luck!

Smells like autozone with all the greasy car parts. mmmmmmmmmmmm

I bury my nose into nate's clothes and just....smell the boat smell.

and i'm not just saying this. ask nate, i LOVE boat smell.

maybe it comes from hanging out with my dad and going to autozone to buy parts for cars a lot. who knows. either way. i love it.

This makes me kind of glad I got into the Navy Wife game a little late. I only had one really good experience with "boat smell". Mercy.

I love the boat smell. It lets me know that my husband is home and not out to sea.
