Hail and Farewell #1

Last night was bittersweet as we attended the first of two Hail and Farewells for my husband. We have two to attend as my husband is in one unit, but attached to another. It was a nice dinner and his commander had only great things to say about him. He received his unit colors which are beautiful and will be hung in his office in our new Oklahoma house. I was also recognized with the Commander's Award for Public Service which was a nice surprise.

We have been here since the spring of 2011 and it was definitely an experience living in El Paso, Texas. It had its ups and downs, but it was not something that I would change. We had our first house here, got engaged here, and spent our first wonderful year of marriage here. We are looking forward to our road trip to Oklahoma in a few weeks and to our new home. And then we will move again in the beginning of next year, who knows where, but I hope it will be awesome!

But we still have some fun planned here before we go! This afternoon we plan on going to the driving range, so Andy can enjoy his birthday present (a nice new Nike golf bag)  and tonight we are going to an El Paso Diablos baseball game followed by fireworks. Then tomorrow we are possibly participating in the Run for Heavens Gate 5k and a going away party tomorrow afternoon for another Army family that is leaving town shortly after us. I have a feeling Sunday will be spent relaxing, but who knows! Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!


  1. Hi! Found you through Jen! We just got to the Career Course as well, but we're in Missouri. Good luck with everything. Following you!

  2. Just wanted to say that I stopped by via The Adventures of Our Army life. I really like your honesty about your running journey!
