Life in the fast lane.

I cant believe its been over a month since Ive blogged! Settling into life in Okinawa has been crazy. It started off a bit rocky but now I am loving life. My husband just went back to work after 2 weeks of long overdue leave. We spent 3 days at a resort way up north. We spent the rest of the time spending time as a family. It was sooooooo nice.

A lot has happened since I last blogged! Little Sis has turned 3!! I cant believe it. She is so smart, beautiful, crazy, stubborn, sweet and a million other things which makes us love her so much. We had a Rapunzel birthday party and it was a blast!!!

I joined a Dragon boat race team. We totally kick ass. Its way harder than I thought but totally worth it. I know way too many people who just waste away their overseas tour and do nothing but bitch about being in Okinawa. Not this girl. I am all about culture. Our team is mixed with American women and Japanese women. They are all great ladies! We had our first race last Sunday. 80 teams raced and we came in 2nd place. Its safe to say we celebrated!! We have another race Next Sunday and its an ocean race. Its going to be tough, but Im confident we will do awesome! Go Ryukyus!!

I have soooooooooooo many pictures to put up but just dont have the extra time at this moment. I will try by best to get some up this week though!!! I hope all of my fellow bloggers are doing well!
