My husband and I have officially been together two years this month. December 2007 was when we had our first date, went on our first trip to Vegas and spent our first Christmas together.
This year December has even more meaning to me now that my husband will be home for the holiday's. It was hard last year celebrating the holiday's when you are newly married and your husband is deployed. As much as I love my family and friends, they were no substitute for my hubby.
So this year I am going all out.I took the tree out the day after thanksgiving, I bought us brand new Christmas stockings and celebrated St. Nick's and I even bought us matching pajamas for us to wear while opening gifts Christmas morning. I also make my poor hubby suffer through every Christmas movie imaginable. Starting with a White Christmas. Luckily he has been a good sport about it and we are looking forward to finally celebrating our first Christmas together as a married couple!


  1. Thanks so much for following me! I'm following you now too and look forward to reading more. I love connecting with other Army wives!

    And one of our resolutions is the same: to do the Love Dare. We've had the book for like 6 months but haven't forced ourselves to make time yet!

  2. Yea we bought it last year and said we were going to do it when he got back from his deployment but we never have. The authors just came out with a Couples Devotional and its the Love Dare Devotional, I think I'm going to pick that up and we are going to do that one. WE shall see lol. Im trying to make it my new year's resolution so that we actually do it.
    Thanks for following me. I'm new to this whole blog thing but I'm finding it addicting and in a way it's like self therapy. I look forward to reading more of your blog!

  3. I had that the past 2 years... hubby was gone for 15 months and left dec of 07 so 2 christmas' missed. This was the first year I put up a tree or even decorated for that matter. Glad you get to enjoy your holidays.

  4. First Christmas' are always the best! My husband and I started dating before he enlisted and we started to date in Dec. so we're on x-mas number three- though last year we weren't together and it was the hardest thing ever to think about how alone he was. No family, festive food, not even gifts! It tore me apart and I vowed he wouldn't miss Christmas with his family (and me!) this year.
