We are intrepid, We carry on

Thursday, August 9, 2012

Sometimes I get frustrated with things. I've got it pretty good, I realize that, but I do get annoyed at the money I spend flying down to Florida to see my husband Jason, the time I am missing with my little family, and the pounding head aches I get from staring at line drawings all day at work. My last few hours with Jason are always hard as I feel like I'm on this weird roller coaster because I am overwhelmingly sad and happy all at once, and I really don't want to let that sad part out at all. It has been 10 months now and I am still not used to this whole thing, nor will I ever be, but I am strong, and I carry on. Our last day was spent shopping together, (I love shopping with Jason, he is the best stylist ever, and a lot of the dresses you all have commented you love were his choices for me .... including this dress and the ice cream print one from yesterday. Did I mention we shop on Modcloth over Skype? Yeah....) eating Pinkberry, walking Raynor, and stopping by this little lake as our last stop before I flew out. Florida really is beautiful with tons to do, and it is always extremely hard to leave and come back to Harrisburg.

So you'll note no bag here. One great thing about having Jason around is that I don't really need a bag. When we went shopping, I didn't take my bag! We have the same credit cards, so why bother? Plus, this dress has pockets big enough for my cell.

  2. Oh man! These dresses are so great! I don't know which one I like better, the scottie or the cones... I am rather new to your blog, and so I have to ask, and I'm sure you get this all the time so I'm sorry! Do you live apart because of a job?

  6. I can't imagine having to travel and live apart as you and your husband do, and I admire your strength. And I love that your man helps shop for your clothes too! My husband has better taste than I do and always picks out the best stuff (if not a little low cut ;)

  8. Are those little scottie dogs I see? Hehe! Your dress is so cute! And you husband totally should get points for saving you from carrying your bag around. Isn't it super refreshing to just go bag-less now and then??

  15. Oh, I can only imagine how hard it is to be away from your husband so much. But I'm sure that makes your time together all the more meaningful. I love that he picks out beautiful dresses for you. This little number is so fabulous and cute! He does have great taste.

  17. Oh my wooord, I love your dress and your nails! Everything here is just so so so pretty <3 and the ducks - very cute photo! I love your necklace, too.

    Being apart from your husband must be really hard, but I commend you for making it work out. When you two see each other it must be the most lovely times ever. Shame.

    You have some seriously awesome happening like your hair cut and perfect ability to choose an awesome dress! Oh, and your husband sounds like an absolute dream boat! When my husband and I go to the shops, I get him to walk around and find things that could look good on me! And he's getting in down pat finally!

    Such a cute outfit ! Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving your sweet feedback.
    It must be really hard to stay apart from your husband. I wish for you all the best and wish that very soon both of you can get together and stay in the same place. My mom and dad stayed separately for 10 years due to their jobs but now they are together .
    Have a nice day!

    Jason sounds like a really fun hubby! I'm sorry you're feeling frustrated lately, I know the feeling of seeing someone special with that happy you're there, sad you have to go emotions. It's hard! But it sounds like you have the routine down.

    That last day sounds wonderful, but so sorry you have to go through missing him! I have had long distance relationships before and they definitely can be tough! But from what I have learned, the first few days back are always the hardest, and then you get back into your own independent groove and work on planning the next time you'll see each other! But still- UGH!
    Anyway, SO cool your hubby has such great taste! The dress is adorable (the previous ice cream one too!) I am sending positive thoughts your way!
    Happy Friday!

    When I actually do go shopping with Scott, he tells me which dresses he loves! And I shop at Modcloth once in a while, but not over skype. We do the email back and forth thing or gmail chat! Oh, I wish I could say it gets easier, but I think the take-away is that you just appreciate each other that much more and it always feels like a "honeymoon"? -
