Time flies

I know.... I suck at this lately! I realize I keep saying that and not changing but really there hasn't been much to blog about. Life has been simple and sweet and kinda boring.

CB has been home for just over a month at this point, he is going crazy with nothing to do in his days while I am at work. It's getting harder and harder to come up with things for him to do to keep him occupied, he's beaten countless video games.

His best time filler has been buying a second property, which he is currently at the bank signing the mortgage for. He has decided to become a real estate tycoon lol and has purchased his first rental property. I must say I'm pretty proud of him.

We sat with a financial advisor the other week, for 5 HOURS!!!!  I couldn't even see straight afterwards. She was really helpful. It's cute though because now CB is all worried about my debt and what not.

"Well honey, you know, one day your debt is going to become our debt, we really should get a head start on paying it down." Too cute, that's a HUGE step for CB. So he has offered to lend me 600$ to pay off my best buy credit card and I'd pay him back monthly instead.

Our anniversary is just a couple months away and I have no clue what to get him so I am coming to you ladies for ideas. What did you get your men for your last anniversary or their birthday??


  1. Our last anniversary we got engaged, and for his birthday, I sent out care packages with cakes in jars for him and the guys to celebrate with. I also sent water guns and balloons and silly stuff like that.

    That's so cute that he's saying it will be both of your debt some day! :) Glad he is planning ahead :)

  2. For our anniversary, which was right before he deployed, we exchanged promise rings :) Some people may think it's cheesy but we both though it was a great idea and made us happy to have something like that while we are separated.

  3. Hello, I'm Allie. I wanted to introduce myself. I have been following your blog for a while and have recently started my own! I enjoy your blog. Feel free to get in touch. I'm trying to get involved in this military community.
