HE'S HOME!!!!!

I don't think I have ever been as excited as I was last Thursday. My alarm went off at 3 in the morning and I bounded out of bed. Shannon and I were so giddy we couldn't stop bouncing up and down the whole ride up to Jacksonville. We made it to Jacksonville with plenty of time to spare so we hung our signs and hung out at the exchange for a little while. I heard that you are supposed to put slits in the homecoming signs so the wind doesn't rip them apart. Well, I think we put a little too many slits in ours. But whatever, they still worked just fine.

I was too short to reach the top, so I basically watched Shannon do everything

The finished product
 We also decorated the car (don't my shoes look fabulous?)

 Once we got changed into our nice, pretty dresses we waited and waited. I expected to be sweating from head to toe (and I was a little worried the white part of my dress would become see-through) but it wasn't bad at all! Jimmie kept texting me so I knew when he was close so we could move to where the buses would be. Until that point, we all just sat under a huge oak tree and enjoyed the nice breeze.
Once I got the text that he was on base, I couldn't stop bouncing up and down. Jimmie told us he was on bus 4, so when that bus pulled up, we were all up front waiting for the door to open. Once he FINALLY stepped off the bus I pretty much tackled him. I was so spastic I missed his kiss and he ended up kissing my chin. =) Oh, well. Shannon did a lovely job getting pictures of us.

I think he looks really good in this picture =)

Really sweaty and tired of attempting to look pretty


Shannon and I spent the night in Jacksonville because Sean was coming home the next day. I was very excited to take my Jimmiekins home after seven long months. =)
Now I need to change my layout since homecoming has happened!
