So it has been pretty rainy the last few days. Corey had been sick for a week, a week ago, & now I have been sick for about a week. It's yucky. But the best thing happened Monday. Well... I should back up.
The Monday before, I had a wonderful friend, Janet Moon, come. She stayed the night! We just hung out at my house & it felt like we hadn't been apart. I love that feeling!
Then Wednesday, Abi, Tristan & Skylar came up to visit us! They stayed until Friday. We went to Ft. Jackson (my first time) that was fun to be at a real BX (except they call it a PX, oh BX= Base eXchange & P= Post). We had so much fun. I love them.
Then to top it off...
Corey had a fabulous 4 day weekend!!! I think that is the FIRST time since we've been at this base that Corey had the days-off he was supposed to get. Anyways! It was fabulous. We hung out all friday & went on a super long walk around the whole base & to the corner store. Saturday was 4th of July & we were lazy during the day & then went to Dillion park for festivities, but I left early with Will. (fireworks & babies I don't think sound like a swell plan). Sunday we drove my brother home to NC, I didn't end up getting lovely Chipotle, but one day I will have it again... Finally, Monday Corey let me sleep in & took the morning shift! I also went to the movies with my friend Faith, for some much needed "no-baby" girl time! For the first time ever, I didn't feel guilty leaving my lil Will man with Cor. But no, none of those things were the best thing that happened...
I grew up in California, so although we have plenty of downpours they are freezing! Right before we were going to put Wills to bed, a torrential downpour started. It looked stronger than a shower! We looked out the sliding glass door, then at each other & without a moment hesitation, Corey read my mind & said "Let's do it!". At those words we both stripped down to our underwear & ran outside (I was wearing a tank top & we have no neighbors).
We ran, jumped, sang, kissed, & ran some more. Molly barked. We kissed, hugged, laughing the whole time.
Then we came back in & video recorded us running around again. (you'll have to wait for the clip).
I LOVE my husband! I L-O-V-E him! I love that we are young at heart, that we are silly together. I love that he will run into the rain with me. aww, love.
