Catching up!

Hello everyone!!!!!
I know I am the worst blogger in the history of the world! I'm sorry! I'm trying to get on a regular routine and I want for blogging to be a part of that soo bad!!
I work at a boutique that sells all types of invitations, shoes, and soo much more!  I also work at our family's campground with my sister doing a vacation bible school.  The VBS is scattered throughout  the summer and I just finished week two.  I am LOVING it!  But soo excited to get to sleep in an extra hour and not worry about planning for the next day!  The next camp is in August and Charlie and I are going out of town for the week so poor sis has to lead it by herself.. Don't worry though Jenn!  I am making a detailed plan for each day and I know you will do amazing!!
As far as married life goes, its amazing!  I have had sooo much fun decorating the apartment and just spending time with the hubs!
For the last year or so Charlie has been discussing joining the military. 
It is always something he has wanted to do and at first I was scared out of my mind! (I still am!)
But I have gotten more and more comfortable with the idea and a week before the wedding we found out that Charlie was accepted to Officer Candidate School for the Navy as a Surface Warfare Officer.  He was soooo happy!  I was happy for him, and us, but still very nervous and scared about what our future will hold.
I am 100% new to this, if there are any other military wives out there, I would love to get into contact with you for some insight!
When we was accepted, we knew he would be be leaving for training within the year.
About a week ago we found out he leaves the 24th of October for 12 weeks of training in Rhode Island.
Fortunatly we think he gets a few days of for Christmas which would be awesome!
Its just a whole new lifestyle we are embarking on and I know that everything will be fine, its just hard sometimes.
Now that I have updated, I have some adorable pictures that our photographer, Lynn Daly posted on her blog along with the sweetest post!!

I am sooooo excited and cannot wait to see all of the pictures!
It was the most amazing day of my life and I cannot wait to re-live the memories!!
Thank you Lynn for "making our dreams come true!"


  1. AJ & I have discussed him joining the Coast Guard Reserve for the experience/skills, benefits & extra $$. We got to the point where he said, "If I don't get a better job offer in a month, I'll talk to someone." but he ended up getting a raise, so for now it's still on hold. Good luck with everything!

  2. Hi there! I have no idea how I stumbled upon your blog. Congratulations on your recent marriage! Oh, and the reason why I am commenting is because I noticed the book "on your nightstand" The Fixer Upper. I actually just finish reading that last night, literally. I just found it a bit ironic that I finished reading it last night and stumbled upon your blog today! I know so completely random. Sorry that I don't have any military wife advice for you. Either way, I'll be sure to stop by again sometime!

  3. Jessica,

    I love your pictures and cannot wait to see more! I am praying for your role as a military wife. I know you will be awesome. Thank you for the update.


  4. Update please!!

    I miss reading your blog. I know you are busy, but would love an update!

    Hope you are doing well.
