Can it stay 2010 just a little bit longer?!

I can't believe that 2010 is going to be finished in about 2 weeks! Normally I would be so excited for the start of the new year but not this time. Most of you know my hubby will be deploying and from what I calculated we will have about 5-6 weeks together before that happens. Thanks to a lot of other training besides JRTC (all this other training is due to him being on the Batallion Staff). I sat down tonight and wrote everything out in my planner (yes I carry one and it is my lifesaver), 2011 already feels jammed packed.

My last day of work on Friday went pretty well, I was done by 4pm and finally tasted employment freedom!! When I got home I was surprised by my hubby with these:

he sure does know my weakness!

and this sign that went along with them:

I am still getting used to the fact that I don't have to get up for work tomorrow or any other day! It is a nice feeling. Tomorrow, I will spend my day cleaning and baking a cake and cupcakes for HHB's Change of Command ceremony on Tuesday. I am so happy that I can do this for the incoming commander, he is a great guy!
Last night we attended a Christmas party at the Batallion Commanders house. We had an awesome time!! Good food, good drinks and good people, can't go wrong with that!
I hope everyone has had a wonderful weekend!!!!
Only 6 days until Christmas!!!

St. Barbara's Day Ball 2010

Last night we attended the St. Barbara's Day Ball for Field Artillery. I can honestly say that last night was the best time we have ever had at a military function. We spent time with good friends and danced the night away!! Here are a few pictures from the night:

We were definitely sad for the night to end but now we are looking forward to the Batallion Ball on Feb. 4th!!!
I hope everyone has had a wonderful weekend!!

New Journey

Well, starting December 30th Kyle and I will embark on a new chapter in our quest to have children. I met with my doctor today and he agreed that IUI is our best option for a baby. I was set up with all my medication and will start at the end of the month. If everything goes right I will have the procedure the first or second week of January. We are soooo beyond excited to get this going!!

As I mentioned yesterday my sister was going in for a follow up ultrasound. Thankfully the baby is doing well and is scheduled to arrive on July 21, 2011!! Yay!!!

We are still waiting on the results from my moms MRI, we may not know for a few days. So please keep the prayers coming, they are soo appreciated!!

Happy Wednesday!!!

I am asking all of my wonderful bloggy ladies to keep my mom in your prayers today. As of right now she is being prepped for an MRI at the treatment center. She met with her radiation oncologist yesterday regarding the lesion on her vertebrae and he suggested they do an MRI to get a full extent of what is going on. He is worried that the cancer has spread into her bones. We are just praying that this is not the case.

I am also asking for prayers for myself and my husband. Tomorrow, I will be going in to meet with my infertility doctor about getting the process for IUI started. My husband and I so desperately want a family and this may be the only way. I am hopeful that this process will work (a good friend of mine just found out she is pregnant thanks to IUI) and that we will have a precious baby of our own.

One last prayer request, my sister, Lisa had her first ultrasound last week. Babies heartbeat was a little borderline and measuring only 6wks instead of the thought 7wks. She goes back today for another ultrasound. Please pray for a good ultrasound and a healthy little one.

Thank you all!!
