I just put an old lady's maxi pad through the wash and all I can think is this is my life...

So Long, Farewell

After almost 350 posts and 5,000 page views it is time to put This Is My Life to rest. It's been a heck of a ride, from long distance relationships and breakups, to marriage and a baby - I've spent the last 2+ years of my life blogging about the big and little things here. But now I have opened a new chapter in my life, that of any Army Wife, and I think it's time for a new blog. I hope you will all join me over at: The Pte. & The Mrs. where I will keep blogging about the up's and down's in the life of Turkey Butt, Elle, Little Miss Elle and Adorable Poop Face!

This is my life :) and what a lovely one it is!

You Can Now Call Us...

... Pte. & Mrs. Innocent :)

Turkey Butt's grad was today. It was thankfully fast and Elodie was distracted enough to not yell out too much during the important (i.e. quiet) parts. Now we get to jam pack out entire summer into the month of June because he'll be back to base July 3rd to August 28th for his SQ (soldier qualifications) and his DP1 (no idea what it stands for).

This is my life!

As mentionned in the previous post (you did read it right?), I am planning a surprise graduation party for my sweet hubby Turkey Butt. The only problem is that I have an awful, horrible time keeping anything from him. So, true to form, I told him about the party. Haha.

I casually asked him what was planned for after his graduation ceremony - if they had to stay on base, if someone else had planned a party, etc. No harm right? But then he said, "I don't know. Why?" And in that second, I couldn't think of anything to say except the truth. So I cracked under "pressure" and told him the whole plan.

I'm a sucker for that boy...

This is my life!

Grad Party

Turkey Butt graduates from his BMQ (basic military qualifications) next Sunday!!! He already found out that he won the Most Fit Award and will find out at his grad if he won Top Candidate Award - it's between him and his buddy, both very honourably candidates. To celebrate I am going to throw him a little surprise-if-I-can-keep-a-secret-from-him party! Now I need to hit up Pinterest for some inspiration :) I know for sure that I'll be making cupcakes with little plastic army men on the top - but what else??!?!?!?!?!

This is my life :)

The Eve of my First Mother's Day

The dog is snoring on the floor.

The baby is sound asleep in her crib - snuggling Otis, her oversized teddy bear.

My sweet hubby is on the dining room floor making me a homemade Mother's Day card that I won't be allowed to see until tomorrow.

All is well with the world.

This is my life.
