I'm going to go ahead and give myself a big fat FAIL at blogging

I am sitting here typing this as my husband is practicing his brief for tomorrow's flight- it sounds like a different language, but I'm actually catching onto some of his "pilot speak". From what I gather from this brief - he's the flight lead for a group of jets that are flying to the Gulf of Mexico to practice air-to-air combat with some F-15's stationed around there. It's kind of funny how Frank get's more nervous about getting his briefs right rather than the actual flying. I guess it's a good thing, he must know what he's doing :)

It’s been way too long since I’ve updated this blog. I’ve seriously been failing at this whole blogging thing. It’s something I like to do, though…it’s just that I really haven’t had enough time! Hopefully…eventually…I will be able to update more regularly. It’s just not really possible with all the stuff we have going on right now!

Home :)

Frank did finally return from S. Korea on March 14th, so he’s been home for a little over 2 weeks. He ended up spending about 2-3 days in Hawaii on his way home from South Korea, poor guy. He just can’t catch a break! Ugh- speaking of Hawaii. We know a couple going to Maui next month and they invited us to join. I really…I mean, REA-HE-HE-HEALLLLY, want to go. It’s just not really feasible right now with all we have going on. Hopefully next time :)
After Frank returned we (ahem…he) didn’t skip a beat and put in 16 hour days working on the house during his week off. I mean, this guy didn’t even sleep in his first day home, guess he is somehow immune to the 15 hour jet lag! But really, I’m lucky he is so motivated to get a lot done, because he really did. He worked on baseboards, his parents came down again and they helped paint, he converted our pool to a salt water system, fixed some electrical issues…that’s just the beginning. Needless to say, our house is really starting to look like a house again and I am super excited. Check out the progress!

Bedroom 1

Bedroom 2

Bedroom 3

Bedroom 4

This makes sense....we don't have any furniture, but we have a big TV!

Foyer and Dining Room

Kitchen...need suggestions on cabinets (should we just repaint?). And what the heck do I do with the outside of the island??

Part of the Dining Room. The baseboards really do make a huge difference!

Other than working on the house, we haven’t been up to much else. We did go to Mississippi about a week ago for Frank’s sister Angela’s engagement/pre-wedding party in her fiancĂ©’s hometown. It was a great excuse to get out of the house for a day and meet his sister’s fiancĂ©’s family and socialize a bit. 
I'll leave it at that today. Hopefully I can update more regularly soon, that way it's not just a boring journal entry every time. I swear we do have interesting things going on sometimes! It's just hard to get down to the knitty gritty when you have limited time and are trying to fit a whole lot into a short post. Anywho - hope everyone is doing well and ready for the summer. I know I am! Alabama keeps teasing us with it's warm weather and then gives us a few days in the 60's to bring us back to reality. Not too much longer, though!
Apparently for northerners it's already the summer....so happy my goofball husband is home :)
I love him, but sometimes he's a little crazy. The roofers dropped about 100 nails into our pool, so Frank thought this weekend would be a good opportunity to get them out. When the water is probably barely 60 degrees. No thanks.

  1. The good thing about blogging is it's YOURS and you can write when ever you want! You haven't failed in my book.

    I love the house! Great colors for you walls and I LOVE the dark hard wood floors :)

    I think ya'll have done a WONDERFUL job on the house. And high five for doing it yourself!!
