Home in Tennessee!

We are in Tennessee! I feel like I haven't been here in such a long time, and really I haven't. The last time I was home was in May, and that was only for 3 short days. The last time I was home for a long period of time was a year ago. A YEAR AGO! I haven't seen my best friend in a year! Isn't that crazy? Time goes by entirely too fast!

Yesterday we set out around 11 to meet Mom and Freddy halfway in Shelby, NC. We had lunch and said our goodbyes to daddy. We will see him again in a month. I think this is the hardest time Hadley has had saying goodbye and it just breaks our hearts. We can't even imagine what it will be like when he deploys next year. Just painful. 

We got home around 8 and Nana immediately showed her the toys she bought her for our stay of almost 2 months. This girl is spoiled, let me tell you! I was lucky to get her in bed barely before 10. Kid did not want to go to sleep because she was having so much fun!
I am looking forward to all the fun we are going to have coming up. I am so thankful to be home for the holidays and Adam will get to join us in December for Christmas and New Years. I really needed this break from Fayetteville to refresh my mind. I sure am going to miss Krys and my babies though! 
See you in June North Carolina!

Halloween 2013

Halloween was such a success this year! Hadley had a great time and did so well. I was so proud of her. She was very polite and told every single person Happy Halloween. I can't even count how many times I heard her say that night. What made our Halloween even better was that my parents were here! We really had a good time.

Christmas jammies!

Thanks to my friend Courtney over at A+life I am now thinking about this years Christmas jammies. Every year I have picked out Christmas jammies that she opens on Christmas Eve night.

We buy A LOT of Hadley's clothes, if not all, from Old Navy and I love how their pjs fit, so I am pretty sure her's will come from there again this year. Here are some cute ones to choose from.

I'm pretty in love with those fox ones..

The news!

The news I have been waiting for many months finally came this past weekend. 


Yes, the caps were necessary. I am so excited about our future, but also scared because with Adam's new job comes deployments. We have been lucky in our almost 4 years of marriage that we haven't experienced a deployment yet. But, the inevitable is coming and coming soon. Adam will have to deploy either Feb or June. Let's hope for June, because Feb is just too soon! 

A lot of good things are coming though. Like a new house, a new car, and possibly and new job for me and preschool for Hadley. This new year will definitely bring new things and it's an exciting and scary adventure. 

But, all in all I am so proud that after almost a year in school Adam graduated this past Friday and is now a Civil Affairs Operator. He has worked his ass off for this!

Hubb's Corn Maze

Yesterday we made the journey to Clinton, NC to Hubb's Corn Maze. Kris and I have been searching for a corn maze/pumpkin patch and this is the one we found that we thought would be the best for the kids. It turned out to be pretty small and not a pumpkin patch at all, or a petting zoo, but the kids still had a blast and that was all that mattered. 

Sweet Olivia!
It was a really challenge to get my child to smile. Ugh.
This one would have been so good if Hadley wasn't cheesing like that. Ha!
The slide was a big hit!
I absolutely love these babies!
They didn't love this as much as I thought they would.
Where we got uber dirty
I have to say this was the best part. The kids rode it over and over. 

Hayride to see a whole 3 animals, and they didn't even stop. Blah.
Pumpkin ice cream, y'all!
And a throwback picture of Hadley's first pumpkin patch!

Pumpkin painting 2013

We got our baby pumpkins yesterday at the store for our annual pumpkin decorating. Last year I guess we waited until the last minute and we just used markers. They weren't so beautiful.

This year's was much better. Hadley was much more excited about it.
 I'm super creative, huh?
We had a blast doing it. Little things like this are so important to me! Tomorrow is out trip to the pumpkin patch with our best friends. I will share pictures soon!

My goodness I haven't updated in awhile! I have even had a birthday since the last time I posted. I'm 24 now :)

My fabulous friend Krys spoiled me with wine and yummy candy cake. She is the best.
I have been spending a lot of time with Krys and her kids because Adam has been having to work a lot and was gone last week for 4 days. I just love cuddling her precious babies. 
Aren't they precious!?

If you're wondering if I know where I'm moving yet, then join the club. We still haven't received our orders because of the government shutdown. The DOD civilians are the ones that post the orders, and they aren't working. I'm getting a little antsy to say the least! Next week Adam will be gone for 2 weeks and after that he will be graduating if all goes as planned. After graduation Adam will go to Georgia for more training for 3 weeks. I will be coming to Tennessee for pretty much the whole month of November! I'm pretty excited!!
Fingers still crossed that we stay here! We will know soon!

First fair

Last night I decided at the last minute that I wanted to take Hadley to the fair. I say last minute, but I have been thinking about it for the last week. I only semi regret it because it was so expensive and our bank account is not happy with me. 

The first ride we did was the ferris wheel and Hadley loved it. She declared it her favorite ride. I did not like it. My child is brave.
She rode pretty much all of the little kiddie rides and had a blast. She smiled the whole time. (Except for the guy wouldn't let her on the rollercoaster caterpillar ride because she wasn't tall enough.)
There was a toddler driving school in expo center with various little cars like the cozy coupe that you drove around traffic cones and she loved it. She has actually never been in a cozy coupe or anything like that, so it took her a minute to figure out how to move her feet to make the car move. After she figured out she tried every different kind of car they had.
Of course the thing I was excited the most about was the animals. Goats, cows, horses, kangaroos, zebra, rabbits, sheep, etc. Hadley always loves the goats, so that was the only picture I took of her visiting the animals.
Before leaving we had to have some fattening fair food and decided on ribbon fries, funnel cakes, and lemonade. Hadley noticed the blow up dolphins and I paid $5 for that thing just to avoid the guy guessing my weight. Ugh. 
That stupid $5 dolphin ended up having a hole in it that I am blowing up multiple times a day. 
I guess the important part was that she had a blast. That's all that matters in the end anyway. I stared in awe of my child while she was riding those rides and how easily she finds joy. I love that little girl so much.
