Good News!

So in March my husband was offered a job....a REALLY good job...but if he took the job he would have to live in southern Idaho (Boise)  for 6 months. SIX MONTHS! SIX months without me...SIX months apart! Did you catch that? SIX MONTHS! So, we prayed about it, and we knew that is was definitely the right thing for us and for our future. So he took the job and he has been living in Boise since March 12th. Its been tough, but he has been able to come home on some weekends....and honestly it has been REALLY good for our relationship. I feel like it made us SO much stronger! Well, he was scheduled to be done with his training in September...September 16th to be exact. I was getting pretty excited because I knew that this season of life was coming to a close.

 So on Friday I drove down to Boise to see him, and when I got to my cousins house (where he has been living) he met me outside. He has a really worried look on his face...he then proceeded to tell me that when I came back on Sunday I was going to have to bring some stuff back with me. I asked him "why?" and then he smiled and said "because I get to come home on the 17th!" I said "thats in 2 weeks!!!" I was SO excited! He has been doing such a good job, they are letting him be done with training early! A whole month early! Woo Hoo! :)

Anyways...we had a great weekend...We did some school shopping for the kiddos..and I scored these for myself...The Blue Nikes are awesome...and they are SO light...I worked out in them today and it was great. The boots are because I have ALWAYS wanted a pair...and they were adorable...and I have an obsession with shoes!

Hope ya'll had an awesome weekend!


  1. that's great your husband is coming home early!

    have a good week!

  2. yay! that's so exciting! my husband and i went through the same thing last year, before our love to miami. He had to leave for 3 months to train, it was so sad but good for us tooo!

    Hope you have a great week! Drop by and say hello!

  3. I so relate to this!! My husband is military, and his deployments separate us for months at a time. While during them isn't a blast by any means, the homecoming is phenom! It does strengthen our marriage. The communication while he is away is more intentional and appreciative while he is gone than even when he is home.

    Happy Homecoming early to you!!!
