Trunk or Treat

I decided at the last minute (literally) to do Trunk or Treat with Brad's unit. I should say the wives of Brad's unit. I do not get excited about the holidays and I don't know why. But I think having kids is slowly changing me. It was exciting decorating the car and watching Miles' face light up. It was fun having everyone 'ooh' and 'ahh' over our pumpkin patch and thinking Matt was the cutest pumpkin ever. It was especially nice being surrounded by these women who were going through this experience with me.
On another note, it's been 2 months now. Just 5 more to go. I try not think in terms of months we have left but rather 1 more week until we're 1/3 down or 6 more weeks until we're 1/2 down. Haha! I can't wait until the days were we look back at this deployment and think, "that just flew right by" like I can with our other ones. I had some goals for myself and I'm so happy to say I reached one of them! Losing all my baby weight, plus some! Woop woop! Gotta love Jillian Michael's morning workout.
That's about it! Hope to blink my eyes and be on here writing "3 months down." Happy Halloween.

Got a surprise in the mail

It was a thumb-drive from Brad full of pics from where he lives.
Showers. Not private at all!
They call this "the sh*tters". Excuse my French. Gotta love Marine Corps language. They have to burn the poo every night. Brad told me today they are getting a new system in where it won't be as gross.
Chow Hall
'The Easy Day Was Yesterday'
Makeshift gym
Afghani Chicken and Rice. I would not eat this as it looks disgusting but Brad says it's a hit. The only thing is it's not sliced like American chicken. You eat it all, bones included!
Breakfast. Mmmm... too bad nothing is real on this plate.
Brad's bed!
Their new pet bird. He is warming up they say.

Miles is 4!

Miles turned 4 last week and we had a party at Pump It Up. It was such a blast and Miles first real party ever. We split it with a neighbor friend as her daughter's birthday was the same week and we shared so many of the same friends. Here are some pics from Miles' very special day!
