Here's a short list of the things I'm thankful for
My husband and his love for me and our little family.
The military and job security.
My little boy who lights up my life every day.
My family back home who always makes me feel special.
My friends here that love me like family.
God and his love.
Faith and how it's lead me through everything.
I'm thankful for food in my mouth and a roof over my head and the fact that I sleep safe at night.
on a funny side note......Landon and I are going to dinner with a friend tonight(tradition when one of the boys is gone) so this morning we are eating turkey(deli meat) sandwiches, instant mashed potatoes with jar gravy and drinking cranberry sierra mist! lol PERFECT!

This summer I took an amazing trip to Forks, WA. If you missed it go HERE to read about it!
While we were there, we stayed in the "Cullen House". It was a beautiful B&B there in Forks and we had the most amazing time. I recommend staying there if you ever go.

Physical: Tired! Once again, I had a BUSY week. I've lost 12 lbs since I got home from WA so that makes me happy!

What are you looking forward to next week: Going back to the Aquarium. lol. Besides that, I don't have much planned!
What made you happy this week: More time with Landon. He had a birthday party for a friend at school last weekend and it was so fun seeing him with friends that HE made by himself. hahaha. I'm so used to him just being friends with my friends kids. We also went to BINGO night at his school this week. They are starting to do family nights and we had a blast. Landon even won! He was so proud!
What made you sad/mad this week: Not much. The only thing is J not being here for Landon's school stuff. I know he would love to be there with us.
What do you miss this week: Laying in bed on the weekends listening to J and Lan talking downstairs. They have a Saturday morning "Daddy & Lan" time. I miss watching them together.
How's Landon this week: He's doing good. Me having to leave him in the mornings has thrown him off a little. He was really sad and I hated it. But I think he's going to be ok with it.
