A New Year, A WHOLE NEW World

Hey all my bloggy friends!  I know, I know, it's been awful.  November came, my fathers passing kind of sucked me down and things have been such a rollercoaster since.  I won't bore you all with the awful details of the bad, but will accentuate on the GREAT!

December 10th, I was let go from my day job, the place I've worked over six years, loved and was pretty bummed out about. 

December teeeeeens, Chief was back in port, after his deployment.  This was one of the best days!

December holidays, came, were fabulous and spent a lot of time with my family.

December 31st, I worked, spent the night with my great friends and had Dennys afterwwards because I was SURE there was no way going to bed was an option.  So we headed home, I showered, got ready and fetched Chief from the airport.  I have to tell you, as I waited at the baggage carousel, my eyelids were begging me to look for the cracks in them, but I said NO WAY!  Instead, I opened my eyes up really big, and....There he was walking towards me!!!!  Me?  After all this time!  That first embrace was fantastic.
So, if you've seen my pages, I have updated my to-do list for 365 and crossed some things off.
We had breakfast with his siblings and mom after I picked him up, then a much needed nap.  We got ready for a NYD party at a friends and went to celebrate. 

some of the crew at Rach's that day

We headed to my BFF's after for some fun times and "Guam Bombs" 


We all were out smoking around 11.30pm and I was SO exhausted and knew he was too, so I suggested we go home.  So we went in the house to gather our things, when...

Why did they ALL come in AFTER he proposed?!

I am blessed, loved, and so excited.  There is so much to share, and plans to be made and and and!
