Such extremes!

I was looking through some old photos today and came upon this one. I couldn't believe this was almost 1 year ago exactly!

How polar opposite from today. 85 and sunny and perfect for the beach. These Californians like to complain about the warm weather, but man-oh-man, not me. I am not taking 1 second of it for granted. All I have to do is look at the above pic and I'm cold.
Matthew is getting so big! 5 months and 18 pounds. He is following in his big-brother's footsteps.

This is why I married him...

If it’s any consolation, I hurt too. It’s so hard not seeing you every day. I miss you so much. I can’t even express it. The way I love you is the most amazing thing in the world, but right now it can be the most painful because we are separated.

I love you with a love that is more than love.

Other than counting the days until my husband's return I thought it'd be healthy to throw myself into some hobbies that I enjoy.
I've been getting a kick out of these cupcakes.

Here's my turkey cupcake. Can you guess what it's made of? Caramel and cornflakes!

Snowmen. Made of cookies, orange candies and chocolate chips!

Yesterday was my 4 month anniversary with Jillian Michaels (or her workouts I should say). I'm not saying I look fantastic or anything, but I feel fantastic and that's all that matters! I cut out all sweets (how ironic with my cupcakes), soda and junk food. I've honestly never had more energy or felt healthier in my life!

Here is my mom's new hobby: baby wraps. She does a fantastic job and is now selling them to all these fertile military wives. I am just modeling them for her, haha!

My Halloween treat from Brad.
A little adult fun the night before.
