This post is completely random and jippy but I was just thinking about how grateful I am for Skype. I get to see my husband almost everyday and he gets to see our little boy and talk to him too even though we are thousands of miles apart. Having him be deployed is so hard but having Skype and being about to see his cute face makes it a lot easier :) I'm so thankful for it!

Let the countdowns begin!

I'm hoping these next months until Garrett gets home fly by! Thankfully I have some things to do and places to go to help pass the time! 

~Georgia to visit Lauren- 18 days!
~Utah for a family reunion- 29 days!
~Texas to move to Fort Hood-50ish days (sometime in October)! 
~Airport to pick up Garrett-113ish days (sometime in November)!

I'm excited for these trips to help pass the time quickly and keep my head free of sad/lonely/scary thoughts of Garrett being gone. :)

Sawyer and I had the privilege to hang out with Garrett for two whole weeks this month! It was amazing! I picked him up on the 14th and I dropped him off this morning, the 30th. We had so much fun! It was so fun to see him interact with Sawyer and vice versa. They were so cute together! :)  Garrett kept saying the cutest things like, "He is so stinkin' cute" and "I love him so much!" He is a great dad! I had forgotten what it was like to be around Garrett since we've spent so much time apart. Before he came, I kept thinking to myself what it was going to be like and how it was going to feel. Let me just tell you that it was amazing! I wish he could've stayed. Four more months and he will be home and we can FINALLY live together again after a year and 5 months! I can't wait! 

Here is a list of some of the many things we did and places we went while he was home :)

1. Went to Snowflake, AZ to visit his family. It rained EVERY day we were there...I was in heaven. What's better than thunderstorms and cuddling with your hubby?!
2. El Cupitos. Best mexican restaurant in Snowflake. We ate there twice. We just had to.
3. Went to the mall and Garrett was so sweet and took me into VS and told me we weren't leaving until I found something for him to buy me. I ended up getting some comfy new sweatpants and a jacket :)
4. Ate at L&J...twice. :)
5. Ate at Dion's...twice. One word...Delish.
6. Went to Peter Piper Pizza. Garrett is OBSESSED with arcade games. It's kinda cute... :)
7. Went to Wet N Wild Waterworld...LAME. 
8. Saw Harry Potter in 3D! Sooo cool!
9. Went to a fun candy store and bought $13 worth of yumminess! 
10. Swung on the hammock while listening to the thunder and watching the lightning.
11. Looked at guns for me...Garrett says I HAVE to buy one before I move and am living alone. I love how protective he is :)
12. Watched hours and hours of Lost on Netflix.
13. Stayed up til the wee hours of the night laughing and talking and cuddling. 
14. Ate more junk food than I thought possible.
15. Ate a Cherry Coke Zero float twice in one day. Garrett loved these.
16. Watched lots of youtube videos.
17. Laughed at the failblog every night. HaHa.
18. Sang songs in the car together. 
19. Ate Menchies. 
20. Ate Taco Bell three times. Yes, we're fatties. 
21. Last of all, cried together. 

I can't wait til November to be with him again. Four more months! :) I love you Garrett Scott.

3 Days

So, I'm chubby and because I'm some-what of a procrastinator, I have 5 days to get my butt in shape before my hubby comes home. I know what you're all thinking..."Good luck cause it's impossible!" Well, I got on Google and typed in "How to lose 10 pounds in three days" and several things popped up. I got super excited to find there may be a way to make this possible! I found a link to a three day diet that showed what to eat each day for breakfast, lunch and dinner which I loved because I'm not very creative and I didn't want to have to think of a menu. So after finding the menu and writing down all the things I needed to get, Sawyer and I made our way to the grocery store. I'm excited to see if this will really work. Who knows. But, I think it's worth a try! Wish me luck on my three day journey! :)

I'm sitting here feeding Sawyer at 4:15 am so of course I have some random thoughts running through my head and was also thinking about random/weird things I love. So, here goes.

1. I have found a new(dangerous) hobby. Shopping online. When I feed Sawyer I tend to surf the net...not good! Anyway, I love buying stuff online now even though I have to pay shipping cause in my eyes, paying the x amount in shipping is totally worth getting a package sent to my door. It's like Christmas all the time! I just love it!

2. I've decided that someone needs to make a binky strap(sorta like head gear) that keeps the binky in the babies mouth. Why? Cause it's kinda frustrating when Sawyer wakes up 3 or 4 times during the night and all he wants is his binky put back in his mouth. Darn it!

1. I get goosebumps every time I brush my teeth or hear someone else brushing their teeth. It is he grossest sound. And, because it gives me goosebumps, I always have to brush my teeth BEFORE I shave or else my hair will just grow right back thanks to those lovely goosebumps.
2. I'm obsessed with to-go cups. There is just something about them like lightens up my whole day if I have one with me everywhere I go. My mom actually ended up giving me a plastic one for my birthday that I really can and do take everywhere. Ha. It's the simple things...
3. I love a cold nose on a dog. I just like the feel of it. Creepy? Maybe a bit. But, so true.
4. When listening to the radio in the car I have to have the volume on a number that goes in 5s. So its usually either at 10, 15, 20, 25, etc. A little OCD? Quite possible.
5. I love sushi. Especially the nigiri(raw fish). Eel is my all time fav. 
6. I love cleaning my ears out with a q-tip after the shower. I love the feel of it!
7. One of my other obsessions is flip-flops. I wear them everyday regardless of the weather. When I lived in UT I wore them in the snow. 
8. I love miniature things. I saw a mini bottle of mayonnaise at the grocery store the other cute! I was tempted to buy it...In fact, I bought Sawyer a little pair of "Vans" even though obviously he can't walk...but they were too cute! I mean mini vans?! Come on! Who could resist?! 
9. I love spam. The food, not the crappy stuff on the internet. 
10. I love checking the mail to see if maybe, just maybe I got something(other than a bill). I usually don't...
11. I'm afraid of the dark. 
12. My family and I have a movie quote to go along with every subject we happen to be talking about. One day we actually tried talking in movie lines all day! HaHa. I love it.

I think that's all I can think of as of right now. I'm sure there are TONS more weird things about me but it's too early in the morning to be thinking too hard. :) Hope you enjoyed!
