Halfway There...

It's finally the 3 month mark of Joseph's deployment, halfway. It feels like time has flown by, but at the same time I realized how much has actually happened in the 3 months he has been gone. A lot! The first half of every month goes by so quickly for me, but it seems the second half drags. I'm fortunate enough to be able to talk to my hubby everyday via Skype, I'm very very thankful!! He switched shifts this past week so our skyping time went from hours a day, to literally 10ish minutes (if we are lucky). Setting aside time every weekend will be a must just so we can *catch up*.

In celebration of surviving the first 3 months I splurged on some JUMBO cupcakes... yea.. JUMBO!!! Red Velvet with cream cheese icing, my favorite!!!! I didn't realize how big they were going to be until I picked them up from the bakery. I shared some of them with my favorite mailman and of course the kids. Of coursse I did a photoshoot, did you even have to ask????


I can't wait until November when I get to see my hubby again and the kids can hug their Daddy :) I'm pretty sure I'm going to staplegun him to my side... yep, I'm pretty positive!

Here's to another 3 months... may they go by quick, and the bad days be few and far between!!! Thank you to my mom and all my wonderful girlfriends who have given me their constant support, love and Skype dates!! :) You guys are the best! I love you!

xoxo,
Lindsay

  11. Yay girlie you are so strong! And Its a hump day for you... now you can look forward to the day he returns! I love planning little things I am going to do when I get back with my love. Helps keep me going! My bf just left and I wont get to see him for about 3.5 months (except a weekend in oct so I know its not the same at all!!)... But I feel like I am right there with you! If you need a shoulder, I am here for you girl! -Katie

  12. We are halfway done now babe. Im sure it will only get easier from this point on. I get a little smile on my face everyday when I realize I am 1 more day closer to coming home. I miss you SOOOOOOOOOOOOO much and I cant wait to see you again. When I get home we will buy a big batch of cupcakes and eat them together. I love you and cant wait to see you again.

    Love,
    Joseph

  13. Deployments stink :( Those cupcakes look delish though! Here's hoping for a calm and quick three months!

    My husband was deployed last winter...the week before he came home my daughter tripped and fell into the coffee table landing on her EAR!!!! She had to get six stitches poor kid.

  14. So glad you are more than half way to getting to see your hubby again!
    You are so strong, I am so proud of you!! You always have such a wonderful outlook and positive attitude! It is so inspirational to me!

  15. Woot! Is this your first deployment?

    Are those the texas sized muffin cupcakes?

  16. Congrats on half way! That's so awesome that you can still talk to him every day :) When my mom was in Iraq (in 2004), we only got to talk to her once a month or so. Just knowing they're over there is hard!

    And jumbo cupcakes?! Sounds amazing :D

  20. Visiting from New friend Fridays. Those cupcakes look delicious! My hubby (fiancee at the time) was deployed right when all this started. Boy how things have changed. We didn't have Skype then and I never knew when I would be able to talk to him. When I did, it was on the phone for a very brief period. Stay strong and he will be home soon.
