An official unofficial announcement

Most everyone knows this but I am putting it out there for any of you who may not have been informed yet. BJ's status with the Navy has been moved to "pre-select officer candidate". Basically we are waiting on all of his paperwork to be signed off and then he will be moved to a status of "officer select". It is at that point that things will begin to happen for his commissioning and we will be on the home-stretch.

I have been hesitate to post this because I don't want to put the bad juju on anything but like I said most of you know this and this whole announcement is not new news to you. Right now it is typical "hurry up and wait" military stuff. It seems like it is taking FOREVER!

On a bit of an update...we celebrated our 3rd wedding anniversary on July 1. It was kind of weird because it was our first one that we both had to work that day. We ended up meeting for dinner at Pazzo's (an Italian restaurant in Plains) and had a great meal. Much better than last year! I felt like we were going on a date. Too funny! Then a couple of days later we left for our vacation in South Carolina. We drove down to Billy and Christine's (thanks to both of you for letting all of us stay with you!) and stayed this past week. We had a bunch of fun and way too much drinking...slushies at Wet Willie's were insane! BJ, Billy, brother Brian and boyfriend Brian went golfing while Christine, Kristen and myself had a girl's day of mani/pedi's and shopping. We made the long drive home on Saturday and it only took us 12 hours and 8 minutes (a personal best for us) with only 2 stops for gas, food, and potty break for the pups!

Here are some pics of our trip.....

There was a lot of Wii playing in the evenings.

Plenty of chillaxin' on the beach...okay really it was the beach bar but close enough!

and some of us struck the model pose...
