We are a nomadic sort….

Hooray!  Tonight is our last night in the military hotel (at this base anyway)!  We are on the road -beginning tomorrow morning!  I am so excited that I don’t know what to do with myself!  After five years away  (far away -like Alaska) and the addition of a baby -we are finally moving closer to family!!  The best part -JUST IN TIME FOR LAKE’S FIRST BIRTHDAY!


I am an Aunt!

My brother in law and his wife had a baby at 2:30am this morning!  I am officially an Aunt!  Thank the Lord for a beautiful, healthy baby girl!!

Rock of Love 2

Husband is addicted to Rock of Love 2.  He watches it -new and reruns and talks about it non-stop.  What does this mean?


The only thing that is universally funny from birth ’til death.

I Love the Weekend!

You know what the best thing about the weekend is?  Taking a long, hot shower -and not having to plan around a nap, not having to listen out for a baby.   That is the very best thing.  My husband can watch the baby and I can have a little time just for me.

Speaking of showers -when Lake was first born that was the hardest thing for me to figure out.  What do I do with the baby while I was in the shower?!?!  Looking back it seems silly -but at the time it was serious!

Not to be ugly -but….

Not to be ugly but –

Last night we went out to eat.  Exciting, right?  Husband, Lake and I were looking forward to a little time together -where I didn’t have to cook and then complain about having to clean up.  We live in the boondocks – so deciding where to eat was easy -not to many options to cloud our judgement.  We get to the restaurant  are seated and then, I kid you not, for the entire time we were there we were hounded by people wanted to talk to/play with our baby.  I guess I am lucky- my kid could be ugly. 

We were looking for some time together but we spent the entire time trying to be polite.  Husband just quit talking to people.  He refused to look up from his plate.  We have never gotten out of a place faster.
