That's great! I'm actually going to see mine this weekend, his parents are going up there and they invited me to tag along. His a-school is only about 4 hours away so it makes it easier to go up there. After this weekend it'll probably be awhile before I can go back though. But I'll take whatever I can get haha!
Yea, it was great to meet you! I'm glad you said something to me haha. But yes I did find him and we were at the airport from 4 am til 9 pm actually. It was a long day but I was so thankful to get to spend that time with him. I definitely cried too when he had to leave. There just isn't ever enough time! I hope you enjoyed your time with your Sailor :)
Hey, Missy! I'm only about a week ahead of you. The doc says I'm further along than the baby is measuring, but I am going to talk to her about that at my next appt. My baby measured at 12 weeks last tuesday, so as of tomorrow I'll be 13 weeks, or so I think. :) I'm excited for our sailors to be to call home. If I remember correctly you should know something soon, right? I won't hear from mine til wednesday! I am so anxious!!! Well, I'll talk to you later. I have to finish cleaning and then start packing so I don't forget anything. :) See ya!
so am I! it's not even that I'm nervous he won't pass, I'm just nervous in general. I can't help it haha. but I'm so looking forward to getting that phone call tomorrow! he's only gotten to call 1 other time. oh, and congrats on being pregnant! I meant to tell you earlier but I must have forgotten. my brain is so scattered lol
haha yep! I saw him. I looked at those pictures for so long lol. I wanted to see some more pics! I read on the comments that they don't usually photograph the Captain's Cup so I guess we're really lucky we got to see pics! I have my candle lit for our guys tonight by the way :) I hope they do awesome
oh that's cool, my boyfriend wants to be on submarines eventually! yea we plan on getting married pretty soon. I can't wait to move up there with him! yea he's in picture 31 he's the one running. I looked for him in the picture that you saw your husband in but he wasn't in that one. it's funny cause I recognize 2 of the guys my boyfriend shipped out with in that picture too. could you find your husband in any other pics?
