weekend wrap-up

First off, thank you guys so much for all your AMAZING comments on my last post. Honestly, I wasn't sure what I was going to get out of blogging, but I am completely overwhelmed by the friendships I've formed and the awesome support you guys give. It's been a tough road, but one that you guys actually made quite a bit more bearable. I truly can't thank you all enough for sticking around!!

So this was our last weekend with the Marine before he heads off to A-stan. Boo. We played a bit of RockBand (duh) and spent a lot of time with family. We got together for dinner on Saturday night to also celebrate my grandmothers and the Marine's upcoming birthdays. Of course, it turned into quite the picture-rama.

I'm trying not to think about the little bro being gone for 7 months. It sucks. He's my best friend and I hate thinking that he's going to miss all of my pregnancy.

But my whine is over. I know some military families have it far worse and I thank God he's only gone for 7 months.

Sunday was spent hanging around the house and finalizing work on the Taj Mahal storage unit. Seriously guys, wait til you see this thing. The bestest and her kids came by for a few minutes on their way to a birthday party which was huge since I haven't seen them since June. They should totally come down from Charleston way more often!

B with the babes. My version of the same pic is not blogworthy!

Everyone cleared out Sunday night and Mr. Perfect and I collapsed on the couch. We have very quickly gotten back into our couch/tv routine and we LOVE it. We sure have missed being our quiet, boring selves! Although.. I sure do miss the Marine. We'll be making the trek up to MarineTown, USA too soon to put him on a plane. Gah.

Other than that, I have a ridiculously busy week. Work is insane and I have a shower and a dinner get together that I have to finish putting together for Saturday. I love it though. Keep me busy.. make those weeks fly by. =)

Hope you all have a wonderful week!

What a tough goodbye to say. I am thinking of him and will continue to do so. All those boys in A-stan do such a difficult and incredible job on behalf of us all and I am so grateful to them for that.
