4 months is a long time to not see your son! Its not like he’s away at college he’s in the United States NAVY. Yes I am a proud NAVY mom, but along with that comes I don’t get him on weekends, or holidays unless he’s on leave and we have been very lucky to see him as much as we have. The next time he deploys it will not be on land this time..UGGGGG !

Any way, back to his adventure of leaving his first real  command in the KEYS (for 2 years) the friends he made 1 he has been with from day 1.. and back to Jacksonville for sea school, that was like 6 weeks and that brings us to this past Friday! So his flight is a 7 30 ish so he will be here around 9:30 ish, his friends are picking him up and he’s going to see them then come home. He figures that he would be home by 11 pm and he would sit and relax with us a bit and then go to bed. So I did the mom thing and I washed every bit of clothing he has here, because don’t forget we moved so I had all his clothing all boxed up for the past almost 3 months and they needed to be clean! Washed the sheets the blankets rearranged the room like 5 times cause well I wanted it to be PERECT!

Well 930pm his flight is just taking off, and he’s going to get in at 11 15-11 30 ish and the plan is still to go to his friends and see them then come home. OK …OK.. fine what time will you be here? About 2 ish he says, JEEEEZ ok well I guess I have no choice so ill deal with it.

11:31 PM, and I cant wait another min so I track the flight on Jet Blues flight tracker and low and behold IT LANDED.. as I see that I get a text, HERE!! waiting to get off the plane to get my bags and go! About 10 min later I get another text,  1 of my bags is missing!  OK so now what, he goes to put in a claim, he tired the plane was already delayed and his temper, well I’m sure you can guess just how happy he was. Ad if you have ever been to an airport, then you already know it stress full when nothing goes wrong.

Is now almost 1 am he leaves he airport 1 bag lighter then he got on the plane with!  have done everything I can do from here but all I really want to do is fix the mess and go yell at the jet blue people and tell them to FIND MY KIDS STUFF NOW..and tell him MOMMYS GOING TO TAKE CARE OF IT, BUT he’s like 22 in the NAVY and well he s a man now.

By this point 1m tired its WAYYYYY past my bed time and I’m doing anything to keep my eyes open,  even his little bother gave up by 2 am, he tried, lights on TV blaring but in the end his body said GO TO SLEEP KID your 12!  So I start folding anything in sight, putting everything in a spot, putting my husbands cloths away in the dark, and I decide to sit for a min, that min turned into an hour and now its 2:45 am and I call him.  No answer..I text..SOON?  I get OMY, 2 min  OMG … I hear the car door shut and I can hear his voice. THIS WAS TOTALLY WORTH IT. It was the best hug ever!!! It was short and sweet but it was just the two of us.

You would think I would have slept late the next day, right..WRONG my eye popped open by 9:30 AM, Seriously, WTH. I go get bagels and stuff do what I needed to do and you guessed it, called Jet Blue! YUP, mommy went there and even found the bag . Because that’s what moms do! So by 12:45 in the car with him and back to the airport to pu the bag. They told us to go to lost and found, bag has been tagged and will be with them. LIARS, it was on the carousel ready to be picked up by another passenger. After we came home my body was done and I was not in a functioning mood. Got some Chinese food and crashed.

Hello MY Lovies

OMG the craziness of my life has been nothing short of incredible!! I had one of the best summers I could have asked for in a really long time. Im sure you are saying, AWWWWWW good for you! Let me share with you.. It started off a lil rocky with my youngest starting the summer breaking his ARM..

This was what I looked like when I saw his X-Ray

But it got better from there, I started Origami Owl (<click to get to my page), as well as Younique ,(<click to get to my page). We took a road trip to North Carolina, very good possibility we will be relocating in the near future and I just feel I have grown as a person.

This summer was my 40th year on this earth.. YUP..me Im 40! And I love it. Now earlier in the year as you guys know my oldest left for the NAVY, and I was a sad MOMMA, but I got to see him a few times through the months, SKYPE, and text and all that good stuff! Well what I did not know was this, my family was planning a surprise party for me and what my family did not know was my boy was planning a surprise visit! So needless to say on 7/12/14 I walked in to my family yelling surprise ….HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! OMG I was so happy and so surprised..

So ya know I said my hellos and gave out hugs an kisses to everyone and figured, ahhhhhh how great would it have been if both of my boys would be here at the same time.  My absolutely most awesome husband says ok lets get some photos before it gets to late and we are all in the pool and drinks start flowing and the camera gets put away. At this point I was like WHATEVER you want me to do, this is so GREAT!!! we get all lined up and WELLLLL guess who comes walking out:

It really was one of the best days of my life..as well as the best summers of well EVER!

A night with the DUCKS…I mean the Baseball team..

My youngest son loves sports, Base Ball, Soccer, Football he really is the all American kid! Sat night his elementary school was going to see the Long Island Ducks play and for $10.00 a ticket you really cant go wrong! There is not a bad seat in the stadium no matter where you sit. My husband, Jasons daddy happens to work there a few nights a week, he is part of the Emergency Service team, in case anybody happens to get hurt or catch a ball to the face, yes this happens more then you know! So my wonderful hubby goes to work and Jason and I wen to a quick dinner and then we meet him there for the 7:05 game. What a turn out they had..about 105 people just from our school were there! The place was packed. Popcorn in BIG hats, Cotton Candy( all I wanted the entire night was cotton Candy and the hubby came through for me..LOVE HIM) Cracker Jacks! So many people and kids and so much to do and see. The game was great, being with my best friend and her family was even better I could not have asked for a better night.  Check it out:

Sucess..My Origami Owl party was a success !!

What an incredibly fun night! Wine friends some old some new and shopping!! How could you go wrong. About 6 pm my friend and mentor Michelle came over and proceeded to turn my living room and dining room into a shopping spree it was so much fun to get to look a the bazillion charms she had and all the necklaces the coolest lockets, as well as earrings and bracelets. It did not take long before the buzz of people starting picking things up and trying things on and you could see how they were working things out in there heads..asking each other what do you think of this, do you like that, It was very cool. I am such a people person and to have all my friends here old and new to have my family as well as them made me feel very loved!
