200 days.....

200 days done!!!!!!!!!! woo hoo!!! we are getting so close now. I am beyond excited. You have no idea.

Lets see what to say.

Oh Jack and I are very honored to have been asked to be godparents to a friend's baby. We found out that the baby is a girl. So we are anxiously awaiting the arrival of Miss MaKaylah in November. There will be a ton of pictures when she comes. haha.

I had the oppurtunity to hang out with a close friend of Jack's last night. And in turn we became closer friends. Which was nice. You will see the pictures later on. This would be Miss MaKaylah's daddy. Anyway its times like that, that I am reminded of how good of friends we have in our lives and how lucky we are to have them.

I don't feel like I have told our friends thank you enough for the support and the encouragment they have given to help me through this deployment. I honestly could not have done this without all of them. To my friends far away and close by, each one of you have been amazing in helping me through this.

Colleen - you are always there, to listen to my joys and vents, and to make me laugh. I am so very blessed

Amy- your words of encouragement are truly a blessing. You are so strong and you inspire me. Come on September for the both of us.

Dawn - I truly can feel the power of prayer. Thank you so much for all the prayers, the phone calls and listening when I needed it. I miss you.

Adam and Morgan - You have both been such amazing friends. We are so lucky to have you both in our lives. You both always seem to know when I need a little extra distraction, and your adorable son is always the perfect distraction.

Josh and Miguel- you are 2 of Jack's closet friends and I appreciate more than you could ever know how you have both accepted me and become friends with me as well. I can truly say that you are both not only my husband's friends, but mine as well. You both remind me of Jack in so many ways.

Jamie - You listen no matter what, you let me drag you to countless stores looking for the perfect homecoming outfit, and you stay positive and keep me that way. I could not do this without you.
And now it is on to the pictures of the day......
