A little weekend recap...

We had a nice July 4th weekend....

It was the Major's last weekend home before he deploys to Iraq... :-(

So, we made sure we filled our weekend with wonderful quality time!

I didn't get a chance to take too many pics...but did get a few....

We went to see my sweet grandmother. She's 88 and her health is getting worse, although mentally she's a pistol!!!! I LOVE my grandmother..she's my mom's mom, and we're very close.  My mom passed away 5 years ago and we have leaned on eachother to get through the heartbreak of me losing my mom and her losing her daughter.

My sweet husband and his brother (right) celebrated their birthdays together this weekend.  We enjoyed hanging out with him and his awesome kids!! We always have a blast hanging out with Uncle Corey!!

To cap the weekend off, the hubs and I got to go out on a date!!!! With no kids!!!! The last date for a year, since he's deploying....a bittersweet night because we were celebrating our 11th anniversary early since he won't be around on the actual day....

We ate at the same restaurant where we had our first date....and enjoyed a quiet conversation WITHOUT KIDS!!! Woot! Woot!

Sooo, what's in store for this weekend?? It's a send off ceremony for the deploying soldiers....and lots of tears and tissue...

More to come on that...

Happy Thursday!!

What a beautiful couple you two make. My heart goes out to you, having to send your love away for a whole year. Tell him I salute him and what he does to keep our country safe and free. I salute you to for the sacrifice you make every time he deploys. God bless your family.

Thanks for the beautiful posts. My heart goes out to you as that must be so tough to have them deploy for such a long period of time. I am so so thankful for people like your husband. God Bless him and keep him safe. What special memories were made for you this weekend to hold you throughout the year. Big hugs!!
