It looks like I won't be hibernating after all.

Last week I was preparing to hibernate until spring when suddenly the doorbell rang. It was A, my neighbor from two doors down, and her adorable daughters. She had come to say hello and introduce herself because her husband is also deployed on the U.S.S. Carl Vinson. Although they've lived on our street for more than two months, we had only said hello in passing a few times--they, like us, keep to themselves in order to avoid the drama llamas.

Since then, we've spent time together twice, including dinner out and little girl Christmas dress shopping over the weekend. It was fabulous, and I am pretty darn excited to have a friend within arm's reach who is in the same boat as I am. Plus, she has the same phone as me. We were obviously meant to be friends.

Not only do I like A, but her little girls (K, 3, and H, 10 months) are seriously making me want to dust off the old uterus. Especially if it means that I'd get to buy what A did the other night.

Seriously, the cuteness!

It looks like I won't be hibernating after all.

Oh my god. I am so jealous you have the opportunity to dress little girls and SEND THEM HOME AFTERWARDS. Guh. I don't want my own kids as much as I just want to DRESS them in the little itty bitty clothes.

Aww that's great news! I'm so glad she's close to hang out with. And those dresses? I die, adorable!

I'm with you. It's the wonderful Navy wives that keep me going.

But the crazies (the ones I blogged about today) make me want to shoot myself. I just want to avoid them.

Glad you found a friend!

hahaha, I think it's a great idea to dust off your uterus! :)

HA! Loved the image of "dusting off the uterus".

People I know keep giving birth to really adorable children. (About 10 babies in the last 4 months.) And I'm babysitting for a really precious 1-year-old boy tonight.

You know, before I started dating Phil, I never wanted children. But now? Yeah, we're going to have to have some.
