We are moving into my mom's house on the 12th and we will be leaving Las Vegas on November 23rd. We only have like 18 days left. I can't believe how fast its coming up. I remember when we found out we were moving it seemed like it was so far away now its coming up so soon. I wish we had more time here. I am really excited to go though. We are almost all packed and ready.

Moving to Minot, North Dakota

Darin got his orders. We are leaving Las Vegas on November 23rd. We are both really excited, but moving is very stressful. I never thought there would be so much to do. I am very lucky I am not working, so i have plenty of time to get everything done. Darin and I are driving my car and his truck, that should be interesting. We want to make it a fun road trip so we are going to stop alot and see as much as we can. We will be moving into my mom's house hopefully on November 14th and we will leave from there.

Our Life So Far!

Darin and I met in February of 2007. We got engaged on November 8th 2007. We got married on December 7th 2007 at the Graceland wedding chapel in Las Vegas. We moved into our first house on base on February 15th 2008. Darin left for Balad, Iraq on August 28th 2008 and returned home on January 7th 2009. It was very hard when he deployed we missed each other so much. He missed our first wedding anniversary and my 21st birthday and of course all the holidays. I cried like a baby the day he left and every day for weeks after that. When he got home I cried again. We both changed while he was deployed but in my opinion him being away brought us even closer when he came home. I now cherish every moment I spend with him. Darin is my life he means the world to me. Darin deployed again in May of 2009, he was in Kuwait for a month. It was not as hard that time, it was alot shorter and we talked more often. We will be leaving Las Vegas on November 23rd to move to Minot AFB in North Dakota.

Shadow and Spooky

Shadow is a black long furred cat. He is 2 years old. When Darin and I moved into our house i was pretty sad. It was hard to move out of my mom's house. I went to the animal shelter and got Shadow he was 4 months old at the time. A few months ago we brought Shadow to pet smart and has his fur cut so he looks like a lion. Cats grow up so fast. Spooky is a short furred cat. He is 19 months old. My uncle's cat had kittens and Darin and I decided to take one. Mainly because I got a job and we did not want Shadow to be alone. We got Spooky when he was 6 weeks old. Shadow is very outgoing and very loud. He loves attention and he also loves to cuddle. Spooky is shy and quiet but he loves when you scratch his back. He likes to cuddle sometimes but only when he feels like it. We love them both very much and would not trade them for anything.
