A Home of Our Own!!

After much discussion, Kyle and I have decided to start looking for our first house here in NC. We decided that its time to move out of post housing and have a place we can really call home. As much as we love living on post, we feel its time to move on. We are really excited to start looking and hopefully we will be meeting with a realtor tomorrow. This time last year we were certain we would only be in NC for a year and a half maybe a little longer, but now that Kyle has made the decision to put in his Psyops package, we will be here for atleast another 3-4 years. We are both very excited to start looking at homes, hopefully we will find something we both love!!

Less than one month before I head to Vegas to visit family, time has flown by since I booked my ticket in March! I am looking forward to seeing everyone!! :)

Not much else has been happening around here, with me working now and Kyle busy with his job we are both drained at the end of the day and are enjoying doing nothing! :)

Hopefully soon I will have good news to share about the house hunting!

Goodbye White Falcons....Hello Black Falcons.

Well, we are officially in the month of August. This year is just flying by. I officially started my new job at Reaves & Reaves on July 20th. They are a small law firm that handle real estate and small criminal cases. I love my job, I’m a receptionist and I also help out with other things around the office. It’s so weird going back to work after a year of being off.

Kyle has officially been moved back to 2/319th his Field Artillery Battery. He is currently the XO (executive officer) and a platoon leader. Today will be his first real work day. The one big perk is that he has a huge office!! I got to see it on Saturday! This coming week I have my final coffee with 2/325 and we also have our Hail and Farewell. It will be bittersweet to leave the White Falcons, but we are excited to be a part of the Black Falcons. We had 2 BBQ’s this past weekend, one at Capt. Montgomery’s and the other was at SSG. Griffing’s house. Kyle’s fist team (well old fist team now) presented him with the most beautiful plaque, it definitely moved both Kyle and I with how much effort and time they put into this. I know Kyle will miss them all and so will I.

I am getting super excited about my trip to Vegas in September. I will get to see my Dad race down in Kingman for the street drags and I can’t wait. I am so excited to see our niece Kylie, she is such a little sweetheart! :) Since we aren’t able to make it home for Christmas, I wanted to be able to visit for a bit. Hopefully sometime next year Kyle will be able to go as well.

People have been asking about our sweet, Emma and how she is doing. She is responding well to the medication and we are so happy. We are taking her for walks more and more to get her energy back up. She is our baby and we are so glad she is doing well.

Hopefully, I will get more chances to update this! J Everyone have a great week!!
