Celebrating America

Well, as I haven't posted in ages I feel like there is a lot to catch everyone up on! Not only did we celebrate the great nation of America in style, but we also were able to attend Mitchell's sister Cate's wedding a few weekends ago. Mitchell and I were both blessed to be able to head back home to Georgia, separately, to celebrate her special day. We both thoroughly enjoyed getting to catch up with his family members and family friends since that isn't something we get to do often. My wonderful mother-in-law did a great deal of the planning and the entire thing turned out perfectly! I was also fortunate enough to spend some extra time with the Etheridge side of the family on a much needed girls trip to the lake. It was wonderful to catch up and just have some quite time away from the men folk while reading the latest gossip magazines and recapping the wedding festivities. I am so blessed to have such wonderful "new" family members!

Girls lake trip! 

As for the 4th of July, the hubs and I celebrated the lovely holiday up in San Antonio together with some other awesome couples that we have met while here at Laughlin. We stayed near the Riverwalk, watched fireworks, went to Sea World, and also floated down the lazy river up in New Braunfuls. We both really enjoyed some R&R right at the beginning of Phase III as we know this next portion of UPT will be rather taxing on us both. The good news though is that we finally figured out that we should be dropping around January 4th, meaning that is when we will find out where we will be stationed and what plane the hubs will be flying! I know the time is going to fly by with Thanksgiving and Christmas coming up and I can't wait to see what the future holds for us :)

Fireworks from the RiverWalk on the 4th!

Sea World!

I am still in the midst of summer classes with my final (woo hoo) semester coming up this fall! I am FINALLY graduating in December and could not be happier to almost be done with school for a little while. Mitchell is still in the academic phase with the T-38 which means he isn't back to flying yet but will be in a few weeks as we head into August. That's about all the updates here at the Etheridge house,  thanks for checking back in :)

Bridesmaids luncheon! 

Right before the wedding with my
handsome husband ;) It's nice seeing him
in something other than his flight suit for once!
