Picking up where you left off at

I have one of those friendships, you know, the kind where you always "pick up from where you left off at."  This past Saturday I spent the day up in Greeley with our friends the Hackett's. I got up bright and early (before the sun) to get ready and made the 2 hour drive up there. I met Steph and Dereck at their boys football game. The Hackett's were the first military family I ever met when I came into this lifestyle. They will forever be apart of our family too. Steph was my first best friend away from home. Anyways I love that I my friendship with her and her family is the kind that doesnt matter how long its been since we talked or seen each other. I can show up at their front door and they will welcome me as if I was family.

Not only am I blessed to have them in my life. I am also blessed for all the great friends I have, along with my wonderful family I have. I would say I am pretty lucky! Without them well, I would probably be lost in this Big ol' World!

Missing a piece of the puzzle

We are about 5 months into this deployment and I always miss my husband but lately I have been missing him 100 times more.  I am so ready for R&R but that still seems like forever away. I sit here and think bout what we would be doing if he was here and it leaves my heart aching. .. My heart is always missing a piece of it while my husband is away. He is my best friend and the person who believes in me, supports me, and loves me with all of his heart.
 I just can't wait for R&R and can't wait for this deployment to be over. I am working on putting together his birthday package and will be sending it out next week just to make sure it gets to him on time!
I know there isn't really a point to this but I am missing my husband, as I know, all of the other wives are. I know we all can't wait for this year tour to be done with!

Concert Updates

Where do I start? I have no idea. I guess a quick update on concerts. Well, after Sugarland our next concert was Martina Mcbride (we got free tickets through the radio station). She performed at the state fair here in Colorado. She was amazing, but the people by us were not! This one guy was freaking out about the people standing in front of him. We thought for sure he was going to punch someone. Ugh! Besides that we enjoyed our time. Martina has an amazing voice and I love her new single that out.

A couple of weeks after we saw Martina, we were headed back up to the Denver area to see Rascal Flatts. Justin Moore and Sara Evans opened up for Rascal Flatts. I love them all!
My friend and I always have great memories and this was nothing less than that. Lets just say that sometimes we aren't the smartest people. Mainly because we just don't think when we should. Like who thinks its a good idea to put a hot grill under the car (right under the gas tank) so no one will steal it? We were more worried about someone stealing the $10.00 grill then we were about blowing up the car. Like seriously. Thankfully someone pulled it out from underneath her car. Whoever that was we would just like to give you a HUGE thank you and promise not to be so dumb next time ;)
**For some reason it wont upload pictures.**
Rascal Flatts wraps up our summer concerts. We have one more thats in October and I can't wait for that one. We will be seeing Jason Aldean! AHHHH! I just can't wait! =) After that we are all done with concerts for the year. Well maybe not we will see what the rest of the year brings we might just end up at a couple more! We tend to do things at the drop of the hat!

I am a Proud sister

So my brother plays football and this is his senior year. He has worked very hard for this football season. Since I am unable to attended his football games ='( I am so happy he has made a highlight video for me to see. It sent mixed emotions through me though. I was proud and I just wanted to jump and up and down and yell "GO TYLER" or "Way-to-go TYLER" it also made me very homesick and sad that I have only seen my brother play football once. Thats sooooo sad. What in the world is wrong with that. UGH! The reason I have only seen one is well, because we are a military family. I am pretty sure that sums it all up for you. Anyways I am sharing the link to his highlight video check it out! Football highlight
Tyler, Jeff and I are so proud of you! You are amazing and I think all of your hard work has paid off. I mean everyone has been told to stay away from you cuz well you kick butt! We love you Tyler! Go #64

An other ten!

I woke up this morning and got on the scale. As of today I am officially another 10 pounds down =) Whoo hooo! This means I have lost 30 pounds now! It feels pretty amazing! However, I know I am going to fluctuate, but I  hope to maintain within 1 to 3 pounds. I also plan on losing more! I have a goal for November and hopefully I will be down another 10 pounds by then too! =)

Do you remember?

Do you remember my post about working on not swearing? Well, I am about to update you on how that is going. I must say I am very proud of myself. Yes, I still swear but not like I used to. I tend to swear the most when I am mad or driving (yes, I have road rage. Maybe I should work on that.) Anyways it hasn't been as hard as I thought it was going to be. The first couple of weeks were hard but I was very aware of what was coming out of my mouth and correcting what I said. Now its just natural for me to say a different word. However, I am not going to lie even in normal conversation I do notice a swear word or two come out of mouth. I probably wont be swear free but I am working on being as close to it as I can be!
