new housing

New base housing is going up! They're building a new neighborhood just behind our current neighborhood, and it's lovely! Eventually, they'll send us a letter 60 days before they move us out of our current house. Then they'll bulldoze it down. Quite a few families already live in the new neighborhood, and we're so excited!

One of the best parts is that the house generally all look different. They're different colors, different styles, and different sizes.

We really do love our current home.. mostly because it's absolutely free. But still, these new homes are so beautiful!! They can't give us a time-line or anything, but one lady did tell us that we might be moving out in the fall of 2010.. I sure hope so!


I rarely read fiction. Rarely. But then I discovered this new movie, Dear John, coming out February 5th:

A love story about a soldier. Where do I sign up!?

So the movie looked so fantastic that I had to go to the base library the very next day to check out the book. And, by golly, it was there! I'm 1/3 of the way through the book (my very first Nicholas Sparks book! I know.. I'm clearly not a girl, am I?) and it is so good. I really am not a fan of fiction (except Harry Potter and Twilight), but this book is SO good! I highly recommend it, and I highly recommend the movie, as well! Once I finish the book, I might do a little "book review" on my blog. I love love love reading. And when I find a good book, I just have to share it with you!

I'm not quite sure, but I think being a little librarian for 4 years* really rubbed off on me, didn't it?

I'm off to read more Dear John, because military romances are so sweet. And I might be partial because I'm actually in a military romance, but so what? :)

*A little unknown fact about me!


  1. 1: I'm so excited about your new housing prospects! They all look great!

    2: I haven't read Dear John (yet), but my sister is and she loves it, too! I can't believe you haven't read some other Nicholas Sparks' books though. I'm not a huge reader, really, but NS books are realllly good. Much better than the movie adaptations (though I am quite fond of those as well). I'm excited to see what you think about the book. I would read it if I weren't taking about 2300000 hours next semester in order to graduate on time. But who knows, maybe I will after I see the movie (and after I graduate) =)

  2. Can't wait to see the movie, and I'm definitely going to read the book now!!
    So, I just want to recommend all the books by the author Karen Kingsbury, she is a Christian writer. Her books are AMAZING!!! :-)

  3. this is the best book I've read in a LONG time. It is *SO* good.. I never expected it to be this good! It's just unbelievable. It's also WAY more special because it's about a military romance, so it's very.. relatable.. in so many ways.. I'll probably cry through the whole movie!
