Deep in the heart of Texas ...

It's been a while since I've blogged, I know. I've been in Texas for the past two weeks. Jake is all alone with Purdy-girl in San Diego. It has been great to be home, but two weeks is too long to be away from my little family. I miss Jake and Purdy like crazy. I can't wait to get back. 
However, Holley and I have accomplished a lot in the form of wedding planning and girl time. We also celebrated wedding madness with Holley's first bridal shower, her bachelorette party with the girls and a girls' weekend get-a-way at a sweet, ETX B&B. And I got to go to CC for a weekend for some Frederick family time. It was so good to see brother JB, sis Kristi and sweet pea-niece Rylynn. And of course, Larry & DD. Loved it. Can't wait until we are all together again (+Jake) in May for Holley & Snow's wedding [affectionately referred to as Snow Day]. 
This week is filled with being a Daddy's girl. I love my Daddy and I love helping him at work. We've been working on finishing out the church. It has been fun and I'm always in awe of how amazing my Daddy is. What a man. Some things are always constant. My Daddy is one of those. Right along with my husband. I have some amazing men in my life. 
That's all I have time for now, but I will update soon on our life and what's new. A lot has happened since December. Gosh - it's already April. Time flies. Until next time ...

Any Given Sunday

As my father-in-love says ... the four of us (Larry, DD, Jake and I) can usually be found lunching at Olive Garden on any given Sunday. He snapped a couple of pix before one of our Sunday lunches. So glad he did.
Makes me a little sad to think that our regular after-church-Sunday lunches are coming to an end after a little more than 2 years. But it's the end to a wonderful season in our lives and the beginning of another that promises to be just as beautiful in its own special way. So excited to see where the next path in life takes us and where God's best is for us. Enjoy each day as it comes, and don't fret over tomorrow.

Love & joy.

Lady Eagle Day - Take Your Wife to Work Day!

I got to be a pilot for a day and go to work with Jake. Wow - as if I wasn't already SUPER proud of my husband ... I'm now even that much more amazed by all he does on a daily basis. We wore our hubby's flight suits up to base, and got to go to the tower, fly in a sim, put on all their gear/equipment, do the parachute hang, and climb in one of the jets. It was so much fun. After all of the fun, we all met up at the Captain's Club for lunch!
I'm so proud of you, Jake, and of all you've accomplished. You are truly amazing, and I'm in awe of you. What a great group of men and women we have defending our country! God Bless the USA!

USMC Birthday Ball 2011

We had a blast at the Marine Corps Birthday Ball this year. It was our last ball in CC for a while - 2011 marks our third year to celebrate at the Omni Bayfront. We ate, danced, celebrated with bday cake and then danced some more. Donna and I even got to work in our funky line dance! Larry looked dashing in his tux, and Jake looked like a stud in his uniform - as always. We went up to the Republic of Texas after the party started fading for some extra fun! What a fun night! Can't wait until next year! Jake and (who am I kidding) I always love a good reason to get dolled up.

Purdy, 'Stache & QUALIFIED!

Purdy thinks she's a little human-dog. Well, she is a little girl-dog. So, that TOTALLY counts. She's so much fun. I'm so glad I have her for company when Jake's away. What a snuggle buggle.
And it's so cute to see how excited she gets when Jake comes home! Love it!
Jake went to the carrier last weekend and landed his jet on the aircraft carrier. HE QUALIFIED! Thank you so much for all the prayers! I'm so proud of him, and it's one step closer to his winging! We're very excited! Here are some before pictures with his boat 'stache. So glad that thing is gone - way to go, baby! After pictures to come soon. We have the Marine Corps Birthday Ball tomorrow night. I'll be sure to get some good pix and post them.


It's been so nice to have David so close by. Since he made the big move to ATX to further the Longhorn Nees tradition, he's been a regular fixture at the Frederick house! I don't know if he comes for the company, Purdy, laundry service or home-cooked meals. Doesn't matter - we aren't complaining! We LOVE having him here so much! It's going to be one of the hardest parts of moving away!
When Jake was in Cali doing his carrier quals, Bunks came down and stayed with me! We had such a fun sis/bro weekend. Purdy was ecstatic! When you comin' back, Bunks? HURRY UP THANKSGIVING!

What a doll ...

Jake and I are probably the proudest Auntie & Uncle around. We love our little niece so much. Kristi & Rylynn came to visit this fall, and we couldn't get enough of our precious Rylynn. She sure is loved! We can't wait for our next visit. Wish we lived closer so we could babysit all the time!

Love this little one to pieces! Don't you think she's a doll?

Love & bows.
