And here we go..

5 days until I'm moved to Norfolk, Virginia
Very nervous about it, thankfully I've found some wives I really click with! <3
I'm excited to be able to have a new place to explore, have a beach near by and get to meet some new people!
The boys are going to be able to have their own rooms too!
I'll be sure to post pictures!
We're hoping hubs is able to have atleast a few weeks with us there before he has to head out, but we'll see..since it's the Navy!
Boys are up from their naps, write more later!!

A real quick blog

I just wanted to do a real quick blog, recently I came across a mama who's parenting styles are similar to mine as in cloth diaper, breast feeding, baby-wearing, organics, etc
I absolutely love this mama's youtube channel and her blog! I'm an avid reader and follower so I figured I just had to share her. I don't have much time to really make this a very long post because I have a little man is who is ready to eat..but here it is mama's!

Please share your thoughts with me on any of her videos or blog posts!!

You find out who your friends are.....

Two posts in one day? Yes, indeed.
The title of this post explains it all, I had this friend..we'll call her Y.
Well, Y and I were seriously best friends you might even say we were "the same person" Well Y has a kid and well..her parenting views are "different" then mine is to say in the nicest of terms. She has always been a critic once again to say in the nicest of terms.
We remained friends even after we both moved our seperate ways, even to different states.
We used to have an amazing friendship.
Now I'm not even sure what to call it.....
It now seems like a chore to continue it, even though I'd truly like too.
It just might be unhealthy for me too..
I guess only time will tell where this goes...
And now for an amazing song :) 


Here we are in August, wow did 2012 fly by or what?
We're still in Ohio for only a few more weeks, then we move up to Norfolk!
Got a house. FINALLY. We thought we'd end up being homeless for a little bit!
My 21st birthday is next Friday. I'm hoping to get to spend it in Flordia with Robert.
Anyways, I'm all checked in with the USS Harry S. Truman FRG, so they know I exsist. 
It was really bittersweet leaving the Stennis, but I'm anxious to have a fresh start in Virginia!
I should be back around more often once Robert heads out with the Truman. Very much dreading another round of deployment. But we survived one, we can certainitley do another.

OH! I've been meaning to post some photos of the kids so here ya go!
This was just this past Saturday at "The Big Latch On" challenge. 
I can't believe Owen is going to be 5 months old on Wenesday! They sure do grow up fast!

And Christopher, goodness has this kid grown up! He'll be 2 in November. TWO?! I can't believe it, I still see him as my little boy, who is now expanding his vocabulary every single day, running and VERY INDEPENDENT! He think's he can do ALMOST EVERYTHING on his own.

Someone please, slow time down!
But Tootles for now!!
