Striped Pillows

Sandy Letters: SEA


Deployment...once again

Well, just 8 months after returning from his last deployment, hubby is out once again! This deployment will be two months shorter than that last (thank you, Lord), which is especially nice, considering he'll be meeting our first child upon his return. I'm 38 weeks pregnant now so I'm hoping for a Christmas baby...we'll see!!

Tiffany & Co. Starfish

There are quite a few nautical pieces at Tiffany's, including a handful of starfish. In fact, I own the starfish bracelet (shown below) but there are many others that are also super cute.

Gift from hubby

In celebration of our growing family (shout out to Baby Noah, whose 31 weeks!), my wonderful hubby gifted me with a beautiful white and rose gold diamond ring. I absolutely love it and had to share.

More Navy VS Pink!

Victoria's Secret Pink has come out with more for their US Navy line and I'm in love, once again!
Here are a few pieces from their updated collection that I just can't live without...(but there are a handful more on their site that are also super cute)

Inspirational Music: Shawn McDonald - Rise

Love this song.

"I will rise
Out of these ashes rise
From this trouble I have found
And this rubble on the ground
I will rise

Cuz He
Who is in me
Is greater than I will ever be
And I will rise"

I'm ba-aaack...

Well, it's been over seven months since my last post...and I can't lie: I'm a bit disappointed with myself for letting this blog project completely fall by the wayside. I spent February and March preparing for my hubby to come home from his first deployment and the reunion was amazing :)

Just weeks after his return, we found out that we were expecting! That was quick! Time apart will do that to ya ;) So, I then found myself sick as a dog for 10 straight weeks. Not pretty. Now that I'm finishing up the second trimester (at around the 26th week) life is good. However, we're preparing for yet another deployment, with hubby coming and going for routine work-ups at sea. Long story short, I'm back on the Blog-Train...or at least giving it my best efforts.

I'm not sure what I'll fill my entries with...probably some baby/pregnancy talk, but mostly continue with anything random that I find interesting. If anyone happens to read this, I'd love to hear from you. If not, I'm still set on using this as a way to channel my thoughts and ideas.
