Triplet Duty!

Hey y'all!! Hello from North Carolina again :) I took my camera with me when I went to watch the boys today, boy is it difficult to get all three to look at the camera at the same time and stay in one spot! Trying to get them all to smile was just a bit too much but I did my best. I plan on bringing the camera with me most of the time to capture some good moments.

This is Brendon, Brett, and Bradley!
(from left to right)

These two are the identical ones, if they only looked this different from each other all the time I might actually be able to tell who is who :) Bradley, (red pants) is the daddies boy and tends to throw a small fit when his parents leave, and Brenden likes to grunt lately, Dee and Bruce say he sounds like a baby dinosaur!

And this is Brett, he's the chunky one of the bunch, but he loves to sit on my lap. He was the leader of the pack the first day I was there, making all the first moves and then his brothers would follow.

I love watching them, they keep me busy and they truly aren't that wild. I've just been watching them about 12 hours a week but hopefully that will increase a bit now that Dee got a job here and Bruce starts on base soon.

On a personal note, I plan on visiting Jordan February 22 - 27 so I will get to see him for his birthday!

I took Maverick to the vet and again he was horrible, something about this vet he gets SO excited when he sees others dogs there. He barks and bucks like a horse, he is relentless and won't stop until the dogs leave. And forget trying to leave the place, it was a tug-a-war and in the process the leash broke my skin on my hand and I started bleeding, so I had to pick him up to get him into the Envoy. I swore to Jordan that was the last time I take him there by myself and then I get a message from Elaine informing me that he needs shots next month! Ugh!!! That dog sometimes, I swear!

I've begun a workout routine... again. I'm not letting myself quit this time! I'm running with Maverick 3 days a weeks and on the other days I'm walking him and doing strength training at home. I'm only 2 days in and I'm SORE!! :)

That's it for now, stay tuned :)

Our Home

Come on In :)

Ok so here are the photos of our lovely home :) I didn't have any pictures of the spare room, but have since put it all together. So besides that room you will get the picture. We painted the entire house except the kitchen (we ran out of paint). When Jordan gets home we plan on updating the kitchen, we want to tile a backsplash. Our walls are a little bare but we go for a more simple approach. While I'm sure I will be adding to the decor, at the moment we are both very pleased.

My First Post!

Ok so here is my first ever blog post! This is mainly for the older generations of my family that want to stay connected with Jordan and I while we are away. Its kinda funny when I say I just got home from VISITING Oregon. That was home for 22 years and its strange for it to now be a place I visit. We had a blast, we felt very busy and time wasn't ours at all. Before we knew it, it was time for Jordan to head to California and me to head back to North Carolina.

Since being home I've spent a lot of time cuddling with Maverick which he loves :) I had my first day watching the triplets, it actually went better than I expected. They are really adorable, but they definitely keep me busy while I'm there. Their parents are great, I think I will be forming a really good relationship with them. So that's what my life will be the next 3 months, Maverick, Brett, Brenden, and Bradley (lots of men in my life!)

Jordan is busy in school, it's only his first week so they are making things fairly tight to start out. He is anxious for his field week where he will get to play super Seabee man for 4 days in the wilderness.

I don't have the photos of the house on this computer so I will have to figure out how I will post those for y'all to see soon, but for now I leave you with a few photos of me and Mav :)
