It's Official

That's right, I am officially an Army Wife. My Soldier and I, after much deliberation, decided to elope! Yes, it was a short engagement, and boy do I mean short! He asked me to marry him on December 31st and on January 13th we said "I do".

Thankfully all of the family took it well. Only a few people knew beforehand. We knew that we were going to have a short engagement, only a couple months to begin with, but after really thinking about it we decided to skip the big to-do for now. However, we will plan a big celebration around our one year so that all of our family and friends can be there.

It was an interesting weekend, had an early flight into Panama City Beach Friday morning to meet my soldier. His mom picked us up from the airport, from there we ran a few errands and then went to the courthouse. She was gracious enough to let it just be the two of us since my parents couldn't be with us. We got married and then took a few photos before having lunch with my new mother-in-law. But our time in Panama City was limited, we had to start the long road trip to Texas.

My Army Guy was tired of not having his truck in Texas, so we had to pick it up from his mom's and drive it back. I didn't want him driving the 15hrs alone so I took an extra day off of work to go with him. Let me tell you, I am NOT looking forward to making that trip again when we move me. That was not fun, and talk about some shady looking places along the way.

Now begins the process of getting me into the military system so that I can move out there with him. Fingers crossed that in a little over a month I will be moving. Here's to hoping!
