AHH so many exciting things happening lately! Yesterday I had my bridal brunch and it was amazing! My MOH (Megan) and her sister (Brooke), her mom (Rhonda) and my mom did such an amazing job putting everything together and making it all wonderful. We ate some delicious food, played a really fun game, and then I got to see what all my amazing friends and family sent us! Everyone out there: Y’all rock! We could not ask for a better support group! We love you!
Now the exciting part….I SEE NICK IN 2 DAYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Well now almost 1 because today is practically over! I think I might pee my pants a little! I head to Newport on Tuesday and since I’m a civilian he has to check me into my room at the hotel on base where I’m staying (pretty lucky break)! And then on Friday he becomes an ENSIGN! This is so exciting!
More great news: HE GOT HIS ORDERS! He will officially report to NAS Pensacola next week! We’re not sure when he’ll start primary flight training, but we expect it to be sometime in the next couple of months! Next fun bit: I’M MOVING TO PENSACOLA IN 21 DAYS!!!!!!!!!!!!! ZOMG!!!!!! Nick and I are total opposites, he’s lived in 5 different states, I’ve lived in 2, and I’ve been in Oklahoma for over 15 years! I’m super nervous but completely excited to start this journey FOR REAL now! Oh and did I mention that we found the cutest little apartment in Pensacola? I know I’m getting older because the things I’m most excited about are having my own washer and dryer and a garbage disposal in the kitchen sink haha!
And does anyone want to guess how many days it is until our wedding? I’ll give you a hint. It’s fewer than 49 days and more than 47! Everything really just feels like a dream right now!
One last thing: I think I finally made a career decision! I’ll start looking at NURSING SCHOOLS as soon as I get to Pensacola! I’m so excited about this next step in my education and since Nick will be in Pensacola for most of his flight training then I might (fingers crossed) have time to get pretty close to finishing a program!
So I want to know, what advice do you have on everything? Moving, military, wedding prep, nursing school, anything? I know the people who actually read this are the ones I look to for wisdom so please, give me everything you’ve got
Until next time… 🙂
