Things I miss about NC

Besides the fact that it seems like once I leave NC all the entertainment on base starts happening there are a few things I miss about living down south.

NUMBER ONE: Not having annoying Jehovah's Witnesses knocking on my door. I just had to dive onto my kitchen floor to avoid being seen. No one should have to do that in their own homes. I am now currently making a no soliciting sign for my front door.

NUMBER TWO: The weather, duh. If you haven't lived in NY you probably don't know how crappy our weather is. I didn't even realize how crappy it truly is until I lived somewhere else.

NUMBER THREE: Sweet Tea. They just have no idea how to make it properly up here.

NUMBER FOUR: The ocean. *huge sigh*

NUMBER FIVE: Not having to wash my car every damn week. It would be every day if I didn't understand how completely ridiculous that is.

That's all I've got for now on missing NC.

Oh, I thought I would be getting away from the constant sight of marines but boy was I wrong. Obviously they aren't every where I turn but I do see one every single time I go to Target and I have to pass a billboard when I go to my dad's house. The one's at Target are always so adorable though. They look straight out of boot camp and all proud and excited. The ones out in public in Jacksonville are usually loud and annoying so I'll take the exchange.

Got to go, baby girl is crying. Such is my life now...

OH! We got R&R dates! We'll see if they actually stick.

This is how adorable my daughter looks while crying... hahaha. 


  1. Yay for R&R dates! and she is very adorable! even while crying haha

  2. WooHoo for R&R dates!! And I love that pictures it is so cute!

  3. Oh man, sweet tea! I miss it so much. At least they try in NY! In Cali they look at you like you are crazy when you try to order it.

    Hope the weeks, or months, go by fast so you get to enjoy your R&R!

    Also, extremely cute baby you got there. Lucky Mommy!
