He's home...

And I could not be HAPPIER! Except he has been home for a couple weeks now, and he is leaving tomorrow morning to go back till Dec. 16th. So that is not s0 great, but the last couple weeks have been way great! We have just been hangin out with good friends and enjoying eachother. I'm excited for him to hurry and get work done in LA and then get back for Christmas and New Years, then he may be heading to New York. We aren't sure yet. Also last month my dad and stepmom came to Spokane for the first time. Bodie wasn't here, but I was able to show them a good time regardless. We did quite a bit while they were in town, but I only snapped a few pics from a few events...
I took them to Greenbluff, which is a bunch of family owned fruit farms where you can go pick fresh fruit and do lots of fun things with family. This was a little shop we stopped at to eat some lunch..

They had homemade honey for sale from all these bee's. Looked so good!

Lots of pumpkins for sale

We had some homemade cider, soup, and pie and it was SOOOO yummy!
This is where our cider was made from scratch!

Downtown Spokane, dad goin for a lil jog!

We also went to a NHL Chiefs Hockey Game, which Bodie and I LOVE

We had a great time and I loved spending quality time with my dad and stepmom. I hope they can get back here sooner than later.
Now onto Thanksgiving...Bodie and I were invited to do Thanksgiving with the Stephens family. We had a great time with them. I was happy to get some pics with Bodie while he was here so I can look at his cute face while he's gone.

Love him to death!!
Good friends Alisabeth and Spencer. Spencer is Bodie's best buddy here in Spokane. While Bodie is 27 and Spencer is 14, they have a ball together. Spencer keeps Bodie young and I wouldnt have it any other way.
I wanted to brag a little bit real quick about my amazing husband. In 4 1/2 years of marriage the longest we had ever been apart was maybe 2 days. Then all of a sudden he left to LA for work for what we thought would be 3-4 weeks, it ended up being 3 1/2 months. We did see eachother 2 times during those months, but it was still a very new experience for the both of us. It has been so nice having him back, and also a little bit difficult haha, which I didnt expect. Reasons why:
1. Everything in my house stays nicely in its place, laundry done, dishes put away, tidy. He comes home, everything is out of place, always laundry, dishes...he's like a little kid and I find the things sitting in the weirdest places. Frustrating, but cute.
2. I am not a morning person AT ALL. 2nd day he was here, 5:45 am, "Kate lets go to the gym! Get up!" I was not happy about this. I don't do anything before 7-8am. So what did he do? Turned on music of one of my favorite bands, and jumped on the bed. I had to laugh. He knows me so well. I was glad we went to the gym. It felt great.
3. Thanksgiving morning: Turkey Trot! Lets go running! So we end up running 6 miles, insane hill, cold, and man I just wanted to give up. He is alot faster than me, and about a million times more mentally tough than me, and he pushed me and kept me going when I was sure I wanted to walk and I appreciated that so much.
4. I am on time to church every single Sunday. Today we were late because of him and I was so frustrated. In the end it didnt matter, we got there, and it was great. I just love sitting with him in church because the last 3 months people have been wondering what my "story" is, I'm pretty sure thinking I must be divorced or something. Now they know he really does exist.
So in the end, I just love everything about him, even when I am so frustrated at times. Everywhere we go, everyone that ever comments guesses that Bodie is about 19yrs old. Its crazy because he'll be 28. He acts like a little kid though. I just love it so much and I hope he never really grows up. He is just so perfect for me.
