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.

Our first Thanksgiving
Well as a whole family that is....
I cooked for the first time since we didn't travel to visit family in hopes we'll be able to take a longer vacation for Christmas.
Our turkey which I felt so sad for when I took him out of the bag. I used champagne and apples along with some seasoning....Doc Handsome and Mini DH gobbled it up so I think it's safe to say it was decent.
Side note: I was so grossed out by the bag of giblets.
Our little dinner time set up.
The pumpkin pie I made which didn't turn out to be the most visually appealing pie, but I can say it was tasty to the max.
Food coma without a doubt...I was really falling asleep.
I adore him
We watched some of the Macy's Day Parade since Mini Dh has been waking up at 9:30 everyday...so we kinda missed the beginning. Then of course we watched football all day long while I was getting my cook on in the kitchen. Mini Dh was so easy that whole day and luckily didn't demand my unwavered attention until dinner was finished. We skyped with our family which was really nice because they were able to see Mini DH run all over the house and see all his new achievements. We ate dinner in candlelight with no other lights on and Doc Handsome even said a few words before asking me if I wanted to say grace.
It was nice setting traditions for Thankgiving this year.
