Military Brides

So excited!

FH comes home in about 6 days! He is only in A school (so not breaking OPSEC rules haha) But anyways I am getting so nervous! I want to pamper myself before he comes home, like doing my nails, shaving EVERYTHING haha, and all that good fun stuff... I am thinking about buying some lingerie to wear for him, but I am so self conscious about my body and I don't know if I would be able to. But I am wondering if anybody has any ideas on "special" things I could do for him when he comes home?

    Home cooked food, baked goods and a big hug and kiss! And a beer or whatever he likes to drink...

    If you aren't comfortable with lingerie, I would skip it.  Besides, he could probably care less if you walked out in sweats.  He, honestly, will not care what you are wearing.  He just wants you.  
    I ditto his favorite food and beer, if he is legal.  I was so deprived of food with flavor that I burried myself in a huge salad from ruby tuesday's, ate the biggest cheeseburger I could find and washed it down with a beer.  It was heaven.  A few hours later, I ate a giant piece of warm chocolate cake.  Mmmmm...  Best meal I had had in 6 months.  

    Also, don't plan a lot of stuff.  When I first finished, all I wanted to do was sleep and do nothing but catch up on movies.  He has spent the last how ever long with no alone time, constantly doing something with other people all up in his stuff.  I know you want to spend as much time as you can catching up and stuff, but be sure to give him a little space.  
    HTH.  Enjoy having him home.

    You know how he likes to refresh probably better than anyone else... my guy likes to eat junk food and play videogames on his computer.  And lots of nekkid time!   So we spent a few days just laying around, talking and relaxing and eating fast food.

    My BF still won't eat apples since OCS had apples all the time for meals.  He used to love them, so sometimes things like that change.

    FI and I usually just spend days lazing around, and doing "other stuff" lol. He loves home cooked food too, so I always cook for him. Don't plan too much stuff, just go along with the flow. Your FI is happy just to be with you, so enjoy all the time you have to yourselves. Also, he might be exhausted and have had lack of sleep, so let him catch up on some much needed rest.  I always get ready and pampered too whenever I get to see  my FI. I know how you feel right now, my FI comes home in 6 days as well! I am so excited! :) Have an awesome time with you guy!!!

    I know how you both feel, I'm getting MARRIED in 6 days!!
    I'm assuming that he's Navy. Navy A School is, I can say this I'm a Sailor, Lame. There are so many RICIULOUS rules.
    Kara is right, Don't plan alot, he's had the last 6-8 months of his life planned out for him. DONT make him try on his uniforms and stuff. Let him do what he wants. If he wants to play video games till 7pm, go to the casino and stay out until 4 the next morning, do it with him. Just be with him, let him relax and don't take it personally when after the first week he keeps complaining about how he just wants to hit the fleet. You have to understand that while he loves being with you, Your frist duty station is exciting and nervewracking all at once. You want to go and be apart of that. Also! you have to understand that he's been surrounded by people who are living the same life. When I went home, it was nice to see my friends and do what I wanted, but only for the fist week. After that you start to feel like no one understands what you've been through and how much it's changed you. Be understanding, and patient with him. AND HAVE FUN!!!! Oh!! and if youre too shy to try lingere, get yourself a nice new bra and panty set, just knowing you have something sexy on underneth your clothes will make you feel sexy.
