the last night.
for our last night together, mr.a and i went out for dinner and then walked around target. he picked out some goodies for the girls to open tomorrow when we take him to the airport. (bribery? distraction? yes and yes.)
 i'd been feeling okay. prepared, even, for him to go back. i knew this day was coming and i've felt motivated to just kick this deployment's butt. only 4.5 more months. 
but...then i burst into tears on the way home from dinner. and now i feel heavy. i have that lump in my throat and i just want to hide under the covers and wake up to find this was all a bad dream.
but it's not.
and tomorrow morning i will drive him to the airport and say good-bye.

what i wore tonight seems stupid and insignificant now.
but...we took the pictures, so here they are.
cardigan: target
tank: tj maxx
necklace: gift
belt: j.crew
jeans: gap
flats: steve madden


  1. Hope you had a nice evening together, and sending you a hug from around the world. Sucks to be apart again, and I'm sure you are very much looking forward to the return.

  2. Love it and you... call me if you need me :)

  3. you look beautiful.
    and i hope everything is okay, soon.
    hugs from tennessee,

    matters of merrymaking

  4. Awww, sweet girl! I imagine that must be hard, but you are SO close if you need it! Start getting pumped for your birthday!

    Also I love this outfit... gor-jus!

  5. Praying for you and the girls this morning as you have to say good-bye to Mr. A again.

  6. I think this is my very favorite outfit ever! I really wish you would link up to my Fashion Friday this week!

  7. I am praying for you. It's not easy to say goodbye again, and even harder to come home to the house he was just in. You are right though, it's almost over!!

  8. You most definitely glow more when your hubby is near ^_^ Sending positive and motivating energy your way (hopefully I leave enough for myself to clean today). Hoping the days go by quickly until your cute fam is whole again!

  9. That is a wonderful outfit! I hope you had an awesome time! Hopefully there will be some beautiful weather to cheer you up soon!

  10. you always make the simplest things gorgeous! i hope you know that what your husband is doing & what you are doing for your kids while he is away is extradoinary & honorable. People tend to sometimes forget that we have not only the solider's but their families to thank for our freedom.

    keep your head up! I'm sure it is super hard for you...but you can do it!

  11. It seems so silly to say that you look fantastic here, but you do. I know how hard it must be to be so far from your husband :/ You are such a strong woman, even when you don't feel like it. Hopefully the next few months fly by even faster then the first few did and he'll be home sooner than you know it!

  12. Thinking about you guys today <3 My husband came home for his R&R about 4 months before the end of his deployment and those four months just FLEW by!! Seriously, it will go by so fast! Hang in there, girl.

  13. Well, you certainly looked adorable for your last night together...
