He's home!!

He made it home safely!! I'm so happy!! :) We'll be getting married on Friday for sure, I'm so excited. It's just so amazing to have him back at home. It's been about 8 months. Well, we're off for date night, so I'll update later!

Just when things were fantastic....

Expedia screwed us over. They moved his flight from 5:30 up to 12:50... So he won't be home until Wednesday afternoon now. Needless to say, I am irate. I've been hung up on twice by their phone operators. They're trying to make us $150 to change it. Oh my gosh.

Finally: We've got a Go!

Wednesday evening last week, we got the word! His leave was approved for sure so I'll be picking him up from the airport in two days. He flies in early so we'll have two whole days together before the wedding.On the note of our wedding, it is this Friday, July 1st, 2011. It's been gorgeous outside lately so we're hoping to have it at my pond. This is the pest picture I have of it on my computer. It's my private little heaven:) My fiance and I have the best memories here:) 

Anyway, now it's supposed to thunderstorm on Friday night. I'm really really hoping it won't though. We do have a church reserved but it's so much prettier down by the pond. We have both always wanted a beach wedding, even before we were together. So please pray that the rain will hold off:)One last cool thing about or wedding date: It's one year since he gave me my promise ring. It was the most romantic night of my life. We were camping in Pentwater, MI with some friends and decided to go to the end of the pier to watch the sunset. It was the most beautiful sight I've ever seen. He gave me the ring out on the rocks and his best friend got a picture:) I think it's postcard worthy.

Well that's all I've got for now:) I probably won't post again until I'm settled into our new apartment next week. I'll do my best to get wedding pictures up as soon as I can. God Bless. ♥ Vi

Only nine more days until I'm an official Army wife! :) Yesterday was majorly productive when it comes to wedding stuff. I had my final fitting (the dress is perfect), got my bridesmaids their gifts, got the sand for our sand ceremony, and a dress for the bridal shower! I'm so excited to see my soldier again! I'll be on my way to pick him up in one week (assuming that leave gets approved since we still don't know...). The past seven months have flown by. I'm going to be a wife in less than two weeks! This is what keeps me strong.

Wisdom Teeth...

Well, another thing I've come across as a military SO is going through surgery without my soldier. I had them pulled on Thursday and it went all but smoothly... I'm now on anti-biotics, steroids, pain meds, and an anti-inflammatory. It was the worst experience of my life. I was in so much pain that I bent a pair of dogtags that my fiancé got me in half. I look 100 times better today than I did yesterday, but there's still nothing the doctors can do to fix me faster. I've got bruises all over my jaw line. It's crazy. Here's a pic, yes this is embarrassing i know. Please don't laugh.
Have you gone through a major surgery without your SO?
Did it go well?
How did your SO react when he saw you, was he supportive?

My soldier has been great through all off this. If you ever read this honey, thank you. I don't think I would have made it without you babe. ♥

I love the Army.

So, good news: my fiancé's leave was passed today! YAY! We get to get married in 16 days, right? Ha! Who am I kidding? It's the Army. -- That was at 10:00 this morning. At around 3:30 this afternoon, I get a text from him saying "Leave dates again please..." so I was already worried. He kept telling me everything would be fine... Well, long story short: his CO is getting promoted/transferred/whatever... tomorrow and he approved the leave (knowing he wouldn't be my soldier's CO at the time of leave). So we got super excited, only to find out that he has to reapply with his new CO tomorrow.  Hopefully (my most favorite word of all time...), we'll find out tomorrow or Friday. Either way, I'm really tired of waiting to find out. He applied almost three weeks ago and they're just now getting back to him. Like I said, I love the army.
Has this happened to you?
How do you restrain yourself from giving some important people a piece of your mind?

God Bless. ♥Vi

Sadness after Visiting

I just got back from visiting my fiancé today. It's always hard for me to adjust after leaving him. This was the first time I've said goodbye to him while he's in uniform so we couldn't hug or kiss like I wanted to. I did get a little kiss, but it wasn't as long as I'd chose if I could. I balled like a baby and it killed me not to jump into his arms and let him hold me. Just saying, I hate the rule of no PDA in uniform. I understand that it's for professional reasons though. Anyway, 16 hours of driving later... I'm home safely. It was great to see him, don't get me wrong, but 4 days just wasn't enough. A million years wouldn't be enough.
I'm staying as strong as I can though. It's important to look into the future, what's ahead, not at the past. I'm learning how to recover from leaving him more quickly now. The first few times we said goodbye, I was a complete train wreck. I'm doing much better now, still sad, but I'm doing well.
How do you handle saying goodbye? Comfort food, girly movies, girl's night out, staying home alone, or what? I tend to opt towards comfort food and skype dates. I haven't got my post-goodbye skype date yet though, so we'll see how that helps me.
How far are you away from your man?
What's the longest you've went without seeing him?
Stay strong ladies! You don't know how strong you are until strong is the only option. Keep your heads up.
God Bless. <3 Vi
