I've got to get better at this

This whole blogging thing is hard to get used to.  I get so busy and then forget to update.  Oy!

I have been really busy with all sorts of stuff.  I have been working, my tire went flat on my car (and my new ones haven't come in yet), school, planning Chad's care packages, cleaning, organizing, and who knows what else!  

I think my brain has been going a million miles an hour.

I still have so much to do as well.  Oy!

I have some special things for Chad in the mix, and I have been busy planning that and making sure I have everything I need.  I'll probably post a little bit more on that later.  

Speaking of Chad, I finally got an address from him.  I have also gotten several e-mails.  It's so nice to stay updated as much as I can.  I still don't know half of the things I want to know though.  A phone call will probably help with that.  

He is not liking it over there.  I think that is mainly because is not in the "action" as much as he thought he would be.  Which I have to admit, I am okay with.  Even though I know when he is in the "action" time goes by faster for him.  

Hopefully some time in the next few days I will be able blog a little bit more.  I Still have another bridal shower and a baby shower to blog about.  I also have a little DIY thing I did that I would like to share with you.  

Since Thanksgiving is SO soon (I know, I can't believe it either), what are your plans?

We have Thanksgiving dinner here like normal, and my sister and I plan on going Black Friday shopping.

Bianca's Bridal Shower

Here are some pictures from the first bridal shower I hosted!  It was at my church.  It was such a wonderful shower! 

We played two games.  One of them was the mustache and Tiara game I found here.  The other was Bridal Shower Price is Right.  I got the idea on Pinterest.  It was an Etsy site who had a baby shower Price is Right.

We just had Chocolate and Strawberry cupcakes, brownie bites and chocolate covered pretzels.  
I made all of the paper pinwheel decorations.  Pinterest has been my inspiration for all of my parties.  Gotta love that place!

   I don't know why I didn't get more pictures.  I was a little busy, but I thought I got more than this.  Oh well!

The sign-in table

The corsages that I made

The food and the little game packets that I made.

The decorations.

People getting food and enjoying the party.

The bride and me!

It was SUCH a fun shower.  I had a wonderful time hosting it.  I know that the bride (and groom) were blessed :)

A Good Day

The past few days I have been having a little bit of a rough time.  Seeing friends being able to talk to their husbands.  Now don't get me wrong, I am VERY happy for them, just a little jealous.  

Thankfully, I got an e-mail from my husband today.  I was glad that the others were posting because I know they made it okay, but it was nice to read it from my husband's own typed words.  

He is doing well.  He had a very long flight that was horrible (his words).  He is not at his final destination yet, but he is still half way around the world.  I think that is why other ladies are able to hear from their husbands.

It's just an emotional roller coaster.  

Today is election day.  I hope that you got out and voted.  I was able to early vote, and I am so glad that I did.  We had to stand in a line, but it wasn't too long of one.  

I just have a whole bunch of randomness going on in my head.  I had an idea of what I wanted to post earlier, and now I can't remember.  Oh well.

I have been making some plans of things to do while Chad is gone.  I have a couple of surprises up my sleeve for him, and I am super excited!  So many fun things!  I am extremely thankful for great friends.  

Well, since I can't remember what else I was going to post, I think I will leave it at this for today.  I will hopefully post one of my bridal/baby showers tomorrow!

So Much Busyness

There has been so much going on lately.  

After Chad left I have just been going non stop.  It's nice, but man.  I need a break already!  

So now, you will see more Care Package posts, probably a few whiny posts, some excited posts, some super fun posts, and hopefully a LOT of accomplishment posts.  Speaking of accomplishments, I need to go update my Deployment Bucket List.  I also plan on doing some crafty posts and maybe a giveaway or two.  

Over the next few days I will be posting some of the Bridal and Baby showers that have happened recently.  I'll probably also post a few craft posts.  (So far I am doing pretty good at this blogging thing.  I actually think about it more!)

I don't really know if there was a point to this post, but I know I wanted to blog today.  

Here is an encouraging Scripture.

"This is my command—be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the LORD your God is with you wherever you go."  Joshua 1:0
