Proud Little Wife

I am a proud little wife today. G made Staff Sgt! For me this means once he actually gets the promotion it's more pay and more for housing. For him, it's more respect. Because there is nothing like being told you're the smartest person in the group, the one who people call when they have a question, but oh, because of rank you lose every time. So this morning I just calling him Staff Sgt (he won't actually get the rank tacked on until quite a bit later) and we would just lie in bed grinning.

Now we're headed off to eat lunch and then we are going to be staying at the Hilton tonight. It's where we had our wedding reception, and they give you a free nights stay for your first anniversary. Obviously we weren't even in the country, so they kept us on file for when we got back. It will be nice to get away from everyone and everything tonight to celebrate, and not have to worry about keeping everything perfectly tidy at my grandmama's home.

Oh, and we're narrowing down our home choices. Our top two we are really hoping to tour soon, maybe even a quick trip up to MD before September! (although 17 hours of driving is obviously no quick trip).
