coming to you from the lone star state

after a few un-for scene events that started off my stay in Texas I was finally able to meet this guy. one of my very best friends had her baby in August and I've been itching to meet him.
 meet Kinsler. isn't he just a heart breaker, def. going to be a ladies man. 
his momma, big brother Aiden (who's just over a year old) went and did a bit of shopping after grabbing a quick bite to eat. then back home for some much needed catching up and baby playing.
almost 5 years ago now Ang. took in my sweet little puppy chloe. when I moved out to Hawaii I just wasn't to sure that she could make the flight, plus have to stay in corentien for the 120 days. the plan was to get her back when we moved back to the mainland. but after getting our two pups in Hawaii Ang. took over permanent guardianship. it was hard coming home the first time and her not remembering at all who I was but I've moved passed it now and know that everything happens for a reason. at least I still get to see her and spend time with her when I come to visit. 
later that evening I headed over to Plano, which is about 45minutes away from were I'm from. the army works in great ways sometimes. some of our really good friends are staying in Texas while her husband is deployed. we did so much with them when we lived in Hawaii and I missed them so much. there is just something about having a "army family" that will be with you no matter were life takes you. since V moved to the mainland she has had her 2nd baby girl and this was the first time I was getting to meet her. I saw Gigi back in December of last year when we went up to Tennessee to visit with our other friend B (who we were also stationed with in Hawaii). but boy has she grown up in the last 10 months. it really is crazy how fast they grow.
we've got a fun filled day planned for us tomorrow and then its back to Arlington for a yummy dinner at one of my favorite restaurants, BABES Chicken. Its a family style place and you just can't go wrong, the food and service is always fabulous.

Aww I'm glad that you were reunited with your pup. It's sad she didn't recognize you, but at least you know that she's well adjusted!
