Where to start? God has blessed me beyond measure. As a 20 something Navy wife, I'm married to my Hospital Corpsman, Doc Handsome, for over two years now and together over three. We have one amazing (I might be a tad biased) little boy, Mini Doc Handsome, born October 2009. Although I am mostly defined by my titles as wife and mother, I am also a daughter, sister, Godmother, friend, granddaughter and above all else, thankful to God for everything he has provided. I work part time, go to school full time, and play the roll as mamma and wife all the time!
We just survived our first 10 month deployment. While Doc Handsome was gone, I went through pregnancy and gave birth to Mini DH. Four months later, Doc Handsome came home. I'd say my life is dedicated to my husband's pride for our country and our little man. Finishing school and teaching elementary school lies ahead in my future. I hardly know all there is to know about being a Navy wife but I certainly enjoy the frustrating yet exciting life that the military has offered thus far.
I started this blog as a way to keep our families who live far in touch with our daily life. It's grown to much more than that and now I've found connections through other gals who share the same way of life as myself. I'm not into the follower count or award winning. It's just not for me. I do enjoy reading others experiences and trying to share mine as much as possible.

Well we did it. We tried to hold off as long as possible till we thought Mini Dh needed a haircut. Even just until his birthday next month. Doc Handsome tried convincing me that we should just let it grow out really shaggy but after numerous comments about his hair looking like, "a baby girl trying to grow her hair out" I knew it was time. It took some motivating on my part. Doc Handsome was not fond of the idea but afterwards he was so much happier with the results.
See, long and really cute with the surfer flips.
He's already starting to get nervous at this point. "Who is this stranger guys?!" You can see the fear in his eyes.
I should've known since he's terrified of any loud and sudden sounds like the vacuum, the blow dryer, etc. Doc Handsome called it. As soon as the clippers "buzzed" near his head, it was all over.
Not even a lollipop would make it better!
Then there was him looking like this. Sweet precious, all-grown-up little man. He looked so much older instantly and I felt like his toddler days were really here. And after all was said and done, he went to town with that lemon lollipop in the parking lot of his barber shop.
