AHHHH!!! That is fantastic!! I am finishing school in May and then I will be moving with Barry to where ever. He graduates from Power School tomorrow and he has one more school left prototype!! We also have gotten engaged and we are getting married in October this year! That is so exciting you are having a baby!! Congrats! :) And Hawaii is awesome I hope we get stationed there!
Yeah Barry started school Monday and he graduated May 27th so you see how much time he had to do nothing. I' sure he will call as soon as he gets the chance. I was very lucky to be able to call so fast!
This past weekend was amazing! We did the exact same thing that you guys did. We sat around the hotel the whole time and just talked and laid around. We went to the pool as well. I am so happy that you had an amazing weekend. Barry is in South Carolina and lucky he could have his phone as soon as he got there and I didn't have to wait any longer. I'm sure he will be calling soon!! Let me know if you need anything. I thought you said he was going to be in Cali?
While I was driving to visit my boyfriend you were watching your boyfriend graduate :)) YAY!! I know how excited you must be because I am excited to see my boyfriend. I hope you had an amazing time at PIR and get to spend a lot of time with him this weekend :)
Did he not tell you when battle stations were? I know they don't call until like 3 or 4 so kinda in the afternoon. I'm sure you won't miss it. Just tell your boss you are expecting a call and have your phone on and close to you at all times. I was in class and I was so worried I was going to miss his call but I didn't. So I'm sure you won't.
Hi Sarah! I've been pretty good. Ah! Yes! I'm so excited! This time next week we'll be with our sailors! :) What is your boyfriend's last name? Mine talks about some of the people he's become friends with but they all go by last names haha.
Girl I know exactly how you feel. I got more time at the airport than when he graduated. It was worth sitting there the whole time even though I was exhausted. I am so happy I can call and text him now, but he will be at school tomorrow so we are still trying o adjust! Let me know if you need anything girl.
Awww thank you so much :) It was amazing even though I had to share it with his family. I do encourage you to sit with him at the airport with him. He was dropped off at the airport until 3:00am and I sat with him until his plane left then went and waited on mine. I was exhausted, but it was totally worth it. Girl you got this 2 weeks is nothing!!
