WELCOME HOME USS CARNEY ♥WOO HOO!!!!

THE BOYS {and girls} ARE BACK IN TOWN!!! I AM SO FLIPPIN' EXCITED!!! 7 LOOOOONNNGGG MONTHS ARE OVER!!!!! I have to tell you that even just posting these pictures and videos makes me misty eyed all over again! This morning when I got to the pier, an elderly veteran handed me a little American flag and I just lost it! TOTALLY boo hoo'd! I am SO SO SO PROUD of my husband!!! I am the luckiest wife EVER! Standing there with all the other family and friends of the USS Carney is just AMAZING! Everyone is just so filled with happiness! I HATE deployments, but I LOVE the way it feels to be pier-side at homecoming! To watch new Daddy's get off to meet their precious little one for the first time is just too much! CRY FEST again! OK, I'm gonna stop now before I can't see to type anymore! HAHA On with some more pictures and short videos! ☺
♥♥♥ HERE'S MY SAILOR JOEY!!!! ♥♥♥
♥ HE LOVED HIS SIGN AND SAW IT RIGHT AWAY! ♥
I have to tell you I got TONS of compliments on the sign! LOL...They kept asking...OMG, did you make that???? I replied...YES! With the help of my trusty friends Cher {Gypsy} and my Cricut Expression! ☺☺☺☺☺

In the first little video HERE you can see my sailor waving to me!

Second little video HERE you can hear what they announced as "baby making drumming" hahahahahahahahahahahahaha!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

In the third video HERE you can hear Justin Bieber playing in the background! LOL Just can't get away from him....USN Bieber fever! hahahaha

HUGE HAPPY NAVY WIFE HUGS!!!!
♥ Nikki ♥

  29. From a retired Navy wife: You brought back such memories for me. My husband only had about 10 years active duty and finished his 33 years in the reserves. But his one big deployment was while I was pregnant and he returned just in time for the delivery!! The excitement is so intense when the ship comes in! Thanks for sharing. I am glad I just discovered your blog. Kathy

  30. I'm so glad your sailor is home! I enjoyed the videos too. It's been a long time since I waited on the pier, but it all came back with the first view of the ship! It is such a wonderful feeling to be waiting for them to come off the ship. It brought tears to my eyes! Thanks for sharing!

  31. І hаve been ѕurfing online greater than 3 hours today, yet I
    by no means dіscovered any fascinating artіcle
    like уours. It's pretty value sufficient for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made just right content material as you did, the web shall be a lot more helpful than ever before.
