Ok, so you stay on Reilly and go through the intersection? I use reilly gate quiet a bit actually. Have you guys ever lived on post? We have lived off post and recently just moved on post. We actually moved on post June 28th. We live in St. Mere. I love it here! Its like a town house, upstairs and downstairs. 2 bedroom 1 1/2 bath. Not bad. We have a little fenced in yard. Perfect for starting out together and starting a family.
But honestly i miss living off post, the extra money we got from BAH, really helped us. Yes we have free housing, electric, water, all of that.. but its still really hard on our wallets. As soon as we get a chance we are moving off post again and probably staying off post unless something happens.
How much longer do you guys have here? do you have an idea of where you want to go for your next duty station?

Yep straight through the light, going the opposite direction as the gate of course. I actually go to pay our rent at Morganton and Reilly We have never lived on post I guess for tht reason...So far we are here until 2014 unless he re-enlist but right now he kinda doesn't want to so who knows.... Yeah and I moved into our house March 1st while he was in Haiti...So he never seen it until the end of april...We have a 3 Bdrm 1 1/2 bath for $650 and it's nice and big...I love it...At the apartment we were at it was a 3bdrm 2 bath for $810! Ouch...Tht hurt the wallet...LOL

WOW!!! 2014! Looong time! David is re enlisting next month.. well he was, but we are talking about him maybe joining the Coast Guard. They dont deploy over sea's but they do leave for like the stuff that happend in Haiti! but its better then being in a freaking combat zone! If he does re enlist he is going officer! and then pilot for apaches and blackhawks. I would honestly rather him go Coast Guard, More family time. He told me if I really wanted him out just say it and he would get out, but Im afraid we wouldnt survive with the economy as bad as it is right now. So Im trying to just deal with it and realize we are better off in the military then in civilian world. But the bases we are most interested in are, Florida, Alaska and Hawaii. If he does re enlist we are going to Eglin Airforce Base in the Panhandle in Florida, there is a special forces unit there. So we have a lot of options right now.
I will have to go look at pics of your house! 810 a month?! wow...thats a lot especially for an apartment!! wow... glad you got a good deal on the house!!

LOL Cici's is good! I love their cinnamon bread!! OMG when its warm and out of the oven..Mmmm
Yeah I think David is re enlisting, but I think he is going Coast Guard, they dont deploy, they do leave though, for humanitarian duties, like your hubby left for haiti, but at least he isnt in a war zone! So I will take that. We will still have all our benefits and same pay. So its nice. I didnt do anything yesterday, we just went to walmart to get some groceries, just stuff we needed and then watched a movie. Since David has been on leave we dont do a lot! lol...
Isnt there a 4 day weekend coming up? the beginning of Sept? for labor day? Im pretty sure its Sept 3rd until Sept 6th is the 4 day. That would be nice! =) So what are you doing today? anything exciting going on? How did you meet your bestfriend here?

I just my first alone outing after Gabe was born! WOW... it was nice! Even though it was only to Starbucks to get a coffee and back home, but it was nice!! AND of course he slept hte whole time until I got home and then....wakes up! David didnt have to do anything with him while I was gone. LOL...life of a mother!..oh well.

I only have basically 1 friend here she actually lives across the street from me. Her name is Bre, she is on this board too. She is 1 of my bestfriends here. Its nice we live right next to eachother we watch eachother's babies when we have stuff to do, but believe I am excited to go home to florida, where all my friends are!! I wont be lonely there..Uggh David only has a week and half of leave left..sucks.. Im so heartbroken but Im ready for this crap to start so i can be done with this deployment. I cant wait until feb or march when he comes home!! Good days!!


So who are your favorite actors? I love Kate Hudson, Zoe Saldana, ooh my fav Actor is Tracy Morgan!!! OMG he is hilarious!!! and I love Gerard Butler, and of course Ryan Reynolds **drool** is my favorite sexy actor!!! HEEELLLOOOO......LOL

Her middle name is Haze which was my grandmas middle name I love it because you never hear of it...How did you get Gabe's name?

Aww so cute! I love Addison Haze! beautiful! Gabriel's middle name is Harley. Harley is for David's dad who passed away when david was really young. At first Gabe's first name was Ashton. It was Ashton forever!! Ashton Harley. BUT I have always loved the name Gabriel, at first David didnt, but then, I just thought one day.. OMG Harley is for his dad who passed away.. Gabriel was an arch angel. The messenger. How perfect was that?! An angel's name for his dad. So I told David and he said yes he liked it, I started to cry!! Literally cry.. thats the emotion I wanted in my son's name. So he became Gabriel and honestly it suites him soooo good!!
Movie night sound awesome!! Im thinking David and I might do that soon, I want to see Date Night so bad, but redbox never has it! lol.. We recently watched Death At A Funeral, Cop Out, Repo Men.. all were really good movies!!! cop out was HILARIOUS! I recommend that one and Death at a funeral. Im getting those when David leaves..so I have some funny movies to watch.
Do you want anymore kids? We want 1 more. Were going to try when David gets back in feb or march. We want them close in age.

Oh the name is perfect then! I actually wanna see Death at a Funeral!!! As far as kids we are kinda undecided....I have always wanted a boy...but I'm starting to think it's not in our genes! LOL I personally would like to once both of my girls are in school...It would be easier since I already have two. So I take my BC faithfully LOL

Oh ouch it was so painful to me to have sex before the six wks was up:-/ Yeah I guess bc would be a waste of time if you don't mind having one soon...I hope you get your girl!
My weekend was pretty lame, I went to a Jewelry Party that was fun but sadly tht was all I did...
Armywives was AMAZING! Such a good ending!
As far as FRG we rly hardly ever have meetings but when they do we both go, It's not as active like I think it should be:-/

So I just made Cookie Brownies, I had never heard of them before...
