Captain and Mrs. Daniel B. ♡ — I felt so tall, I had on four inch platforms!!!
The mister text me super early this morning. For some odd reason I went to sleep around midnight and woke up around 3AM. Why???
He told me they’re flying to their FOB today, and they took some rocket hits in Baghran, but thankfully no one got hurt.
I try to text his mom with updates because he usually spends his free time just texting me instead. They were stuck in Kuwait for a few days because the heat was so bad that their flight was cancelled due to the plane being too hot, making it too heavy to fly.
The guys had left last week, and it was also the day that I got my essay results for my license. Sometimes I feel bad when I send his mom updates because I don’t want his family to feel ignored by him or second place, but I think they would rather know what’s going on with him over there than had no update at all about him.
Every day he sends me a text to tell me that he loves me and misses me. He’s definitely my motivator when I get out of bed at 05:30, and leave the house at 06:20, just to get to work around 07:30… ugh, I haven’t done an hour commute for work since I worked in NYC! I only signed a one year contract with the school district, and we’re preparing for Georgia next summer. (I’ve never been to the peach state before!) ♡
♡ He’s a great guy. I love him. ♡

So I wrote very briefly about the bracelet in a previous post.
For my birthday, I told my guy I wanted a bracelet. I figured, why not? He’s a guy. He wouldn’t know what to get me anyway. Sweet guy that he is, he got me the bracelet I wanted… only, it was very flimsy looking compared to the picture online. So I returned it. (Well, I had him return it, actually.)
While we were at the mall, the first store you see as you’re entering is Helzberg Diamonds. He says, Do you want to find a bracelet in there? (I love him so much, he spoils me!) I got a bracelet there, but I felt bad though because I felt it was way too overpriced, and it wasn’t something that I could wear every day either… I also found a similar bracelet online for like $115 (the one at Helzberg was like $350).
I made the poor guy return that bracelet too. Only, he said he didn’t want to because then the salesperson would think he was making me return it because he was being cheap — so I said fine, let’s go to another mall (there was one in the opposite direction, about twenty minutes away). I felt kind of stupid having to lie to the salesperson when I returned it, I mean, can’t you just return something if you don’t want it anymore? (This is why I prefer online shopping!)
When we got back to the hotel, my very awesome guy ordered the new bracelet that I wanted online. That bracelet came in about a week… I wore it for about two weeks and decided I didn’t like it after all. It’s a nice bracelet, but it’s not something that you can wear everyday. I wanted something more simple. So I returned that bracelet too.
So… a month after my birthday, this is the final bracelet that I settled on. I love it. (It’s an infinity bracelet.) ♡
