Cutting The Budget

As most of you brides know my FH and I recently found out we are expecting. So, obviously we have way more important things to worry about than napkins and wine tasting. So, the wedding budget is being cut big time and alot of things changed because we have a very important bundle of joy on the way and I'd rather spend money on diapers and baby necessities than wine that I don't really like drinking in the first place. Isn't that sad that I was planning on having wine to try to appeal to my wine loving FMIL? Oh well, I don't think anyone will really miss the booze.

For a girl we have chosen
Calista Roxanne
which means "Lovely Dawn"

and for a boy we have chosen
Grant Alexander
which means "Great Defender of the People"

Now we just have to wait another nine weeks to find out if our little "Gummy bear" is a girl or a boy. The FH is wanting a girl so fingers crossed that he gets as he wishes.

We have a little Gummi Bear

 BabyFetus Ticker

Well, the two week R&R trip was fun and the FH has returned to his favorite place in the desert. LOL
And today we found out he left a little something behind. I am now 5 weeks preggo with an R&R baby and I am due May 20th according to the doctors so apparently 4 months in the desert did wonders for his little soliders because we concieved the very first night he got back in the states.

Back from the trip

Technically

Well, the trip was a general success not quite all stops were made but in the end we managed to see as many family members on his side as humanly possible. Not everyone was pleased but they're adults and will have to just wait for the next trip across the darn US.

He's Already Halfway Here

Its true, I was on my facebook and lo and behold look who comes online The FH. Now this seemed very weird to me because with the time difference its 1am where he is. His first words are guess where i am and after i asked where the time it took him to reply felt like an eternity. He's already halfway home, apparently last night my time and morning time his time a guy in his unit came running over and told him to pack his stuff cause he has 20 minutes to be on a chopper. This means I have 9 to 12 hours till he gets here.

Homemade Spa Treatments

Okay so my FH is coming home in around 24-48 hours so I thought now would be a goof time to make up for the last 4 months of neglecting my beauty treatments. LOL In fact during the 4 months he's been gone I've shaved my legs 3 times, I know it seems terrible but who am I trying to impress? The only guy who I care about seeing me at my best has been in a foreign country for 4 months. So, tonight is my pamper me night and I have mixed up my three favorite homemade spa treatments and I figured I'd share them with you girls. These are all real simple and most of you will likely have them on hand most of the time. I know i keep them around for this exact reason. I mean who doesn't like taking a little time for themselves.

FH leaves Afghanistan Tonight

Okay as some of you may know my FH is a soldier in the US Army and we've been going back and forth with his leave date because the army can't make up their minds on when they'll let him come home for a visit. So far we've gone from the 31st to the 27th to the 21st to the 25th and now we are back at the 27th, which since the time difference he'll be leaving tonight my time. So, lets all keep our fingers crossed that the chopper comes and brings him home.
