It's official...

So the husband is officially gone. He left for Iraq this morning, although he will be making a bunch of pit stops in order to get there, he's officially "overseas". Honestly, it sucks and I've been in a horrible mood lately because of the fact that I know he's not in the states anymore and that this deployment has officially begun.

On another note, yesterday we went to get Gabriel's pictures taken for his invites and he was such a poop and wouldn't smile or cooperate but we did manage to get some good ones and it was hard to choose just one or two pictures but I think that's just because he's so darn cute! 

I just loved how they turned out! I cant wait to finish his invites so everyone can see them!

Oh, I almost forgot to mention that I created a separate blog basically written in Gabriel's perspective so my dear husband can see what the kiddo is up to day to day. I got the idea from Sarah whose hubby is also deployed and is doing the same with her son. I was working on the layout but didn't get much done other than the headline and a few other parts of the page. So far I love it though!


  1. awww :( Its hard when they are "officially" gone. Im always here if you need anything. Where did you get Gabriels pictures done? those came out so good!!! He is so cute :) I love the blog thing..I got it from another friend and I'm so glad you can use the idea too. Im not sure where she got it but when I saw it I loved it :) Im sure your hubby will love it too. Let me know if you need anything.

  2. Thanks Sarah! like i've said before, it's such a relief to know that I have people in the same boat as me.
    We got them done at the picture people. He was really cranky and I was exhausted chasing after him and positioning him that I kinda just told the photographer that I had enough. Otherwise I know we would've had more to choose from. Overall I'm happy though.
