Nesting... sorta.

Today marks the 31st week of pregnancy and well I'm ready to nest! BUuuut, I cannot. So, what I'm doing is planning out my nesting. Haha! I opted to wait and purchase furniture and everything baby related in the states, basically because it affords options outside of AAFES. We have 2 weeks and 4 days remaining here in Germany and I've been searching high and low for the perfect furniture for the babe! Trouble is, though, I'll find something I love online and it's usually both "out of stock online" and "unavailable in stores", meaning I'm screwed.

So far we've purchased the infant carrier and that's about it!

I also have a few projects from Pinterest (of course) I really would like to complete for the nursery. Ahhh, well it'll wait and I'll have "fun" getting everything done in a short period of time, after 36 weeks of pregnancy. Haha... "fun". I'm just so anxious to start and finish! Bah but I'm stuck waiting!

Two months.....

It's been almost two months since my last post. I wasn't really feeling like I had anything blog-worthy to write about so I kept all the happenings in our life to myself. Looking back I see quite a bit has happened since the 6th of April.
We jumped right into some travels London on the 7th and then straight onto Rome until the 12th.
Kevin was supposed to be deferring a school in the states but wound up the Sgt Major wasn't on board with that choice. So Kevin left for Fort Benning around the 22nd. He will actually be graduating today from ALC. He made the Commandant's List! Woot woot, I'm so proud of him. The last two months have been hectic though now that I'm really thinking about it.

After the travels and Kevin left, we finally got our orders. We will be heading to Fort Riley, KS. At first our report date was in October but we wouldn't have enough time to get the babe's passport and other documents in time to report. So after some back and forth between myself and a host of people we are being allowed to leave Germany in a short 3 weeks from today. Our daughter will be born in the US. I came to realize that nothing will be ideal. You see I'll be flying a mere 4 days before my no-fly date and be without our furniture and car until September. Super right? But it's our plan!

I've been busy scheduling our Unaccompanied Baggage and Household Goods shipments, made flight arrangements (which was literally an all day affair), had a few more doctor appointments and so far so good. Today marks 30 weeks!! I can't believe it. It's really flown by and time will surely not be slowing down any time soon with our next PCS!

Maybe it won't be another 2 months before my next post??
