No Title Needed


It's been a long time I know. As you know I had a short 3 month deployment, then we had a huge inspection when returned as well as a follow up to the inspection. So my once normal working hours had increased to 12+ hours at work. I have sleep apnea, so this does not make it any better, so I have been super tired and had not been able to open up a scrap anything, as much as I really wanted to. I was on a design team and just could not do anything, I was going to drop, but she got me first, lol. Made things a lot easier. Wish her blog all the best!

So whats going on with me? My husband is finally moving down with me and the kids(after living in separate states for two years) Yay!! His job was just a lot better where he was. But, being all together will be a lot better. Plus I know he is tired of the commute every single weekend.

Lets see...after a few weeks of neglecting our own challenge blog and months of neglecting my spot here, I finally have something to post, lol. This was a card I did with an image from Robin's Fetish Stamps. It' s called "A Little Birdie Told Me". Make sure to stop by to see what other stamps she may have for your stamping fetish!

Well, in closing I just ask that everyone is patient with me, lol. I will be leaving for 7 months real soon, it's going to very hard for me to be with out my family and I will be in a new job actually working on the flight deck (Very Scary). I just ask for your prayers and for my safe return. In the meantime I will try and update more often and I will definitely post before I leave for deployment. I may have to email my husband my blog post and teach him how to update for me, lol (yeah right)! Have a great week!

Home Sweet Home

Hey everyone!

I finally made it home last night around 8:30, we pulled into San Diego and flew back to Virginia Beach. It was a great home coming! I was so glad to see my family, who waiting on me with a huge bouquet of yellow roses (which I know mean friendship, but are my absolute favorite).

I will still not be around the of the week too much, as my hubby and I are taking a much needed vacation to the Poconos for about four days. We went a few years ago for our anniversary, and we are going this year again for the same reason, even though I missed our anniversary for being out to sea. It was April 3rd.

Thank you so much Penny for the beautiful card you sent me, I will definitely have to set a trip down that way after my deployment next year! The card came right on time, because it was coming near the end and I was feeling like it was never going to end.

This trip was crazy! We first set sail thinking we were just going to hit a few ports and go to California and come home. But God had other plans for us, as we were called to help the people of Haiti after the devastating earthquake. This was one of my proudest moments of being in the military. Because we were the first to respond (USS CARL VINSON) and make such a huge impact and save so many lives! So many people came together in different ways. We had people filling up tons of jugs of water as well as dropping off food and bringing people back to the ship to perform emergency surgery.

After a few weeks of being out there, we set sail to Rio De Janeiro, then to Lima Peru. I will update later on those places with pictures when I can.

Just wanted to let everyone know I was home safe and hope to get some scrapping done soon after spending some much needed time with my family.

Gone on Deployment

Hello everyone,

sorry once again it has taken me so long to update. Well, as some know, I got promoted to E-6, so with that came more responsibility. So I have been at work most of my time getting ready to leave my family for almost 3 1/2 months. :(

If anyone would like the address of the ship I will be on, Tracey and Leslie from IF THE SHOE FITS SCRAP IT will have it. I am not sure of how well my email capabilities will be, and can't really discuss where I will be going. But will tell you about the places I got to visit when I return.

I want to say I will miss everyone, I have had the pleasure to meet and conversate with and hope you will continue to follow me as I will pick up when I return. Hopefully I will get to update while I am out. I have only packed my copics one ink pad and some paper as far as scrapping goes, lol. This is going to be a long 3 months!!

If you leave a comment, and I dont respond right away you will know why, lol. But, when and If I can I will. I will have to be on the ship tonight and we pull out in the morning.

Look forward to getting back and being with my family and looking at all the new projects that everyone will have created by then.
