Catching up -- James is HOME! Go Vote!

I am BACK! Last week was whirlwind of fun and craziness.
We left on Saturday for Norfolk and James came home on Sunday!
I had a perfect weekend and am super sad to be back to the real world!

Let's play catch up!

Steven's classes were cancelled for the whole week as a result of Hurricane Sandy, so he came back home!
We went out as a nerd & prep on Tuesday:

On Halloween night, it was Ballerina night with our homemade tutus!

Steven went with cowboy again since he didn't have another costume:

At Hokie House, our usual hangout!

On Thursday night we were back at Hokie House to catch the Hokie game!

The game was quite depressing, although I had so much fun with all of my friends AND my boyfriend!
I felt so lucky!

Teacher-y girls :)

*Now, we're in Norfolk! James' Welcome Home crew, minus 3!

The most precious sailor baby, with the band & Sesame Street characters:

The Enterprise is HOME!

Happy Birthday and Welcome Home!!!!

My family! Back together again!
James & his girlfriend - they started dating while he was out at sea:


We went up on the flight deck:

Whew! I am so exhausted but so happy and blessed to have my brother home, safe and sound.
Today I am thankful for all of the men and women in our military! God Bless them!

I hope everyone goes out to VOTE today! Please exercise your right to vote, no matter who you vote for, just go vote!!

I promise to be back to regular-ish blogging soon. My incentive is going to be blogging about things I'm thankful for as we prepare for Thanksgiving!

Happy Tuesday/Election Day!


  1. I'm so happy that your brother is home safe and sound! I hope you and Steven had a fun time together. I love your costumes!

  2. Your ballerina tutu is to die for! I wish I could be that creative! I'm so happy to hear that your brother is safe and back home with your family!


Thank you for the sweet comments! xo!
