On Saturday I drove up to visit Andy at Fort Knox. He knows how anxious I am about the big move, so he decided it would be nice to get as familiar with the area as I can before the wedding.
I was so nervous driving onto post by myself for the first time. The guy at the gate (Knox has civilian gate guards) saw my Murray State license plate and we had a nice little conversation about my alma mater. He didn’t even ask my reason for visiting, although I think he caught a glimpse of the rock on my left hand as I handed him my license 😉
Andy met me in the parking lot of his barracks. Every single time I see him again, I love just running into his arms and giving him the biggest hug and standing on my tiptoes 🙂
After we said our hellos, we started the day at Pizza Hut, where we had the place entirely to ourselves! Nothing special to say here.
Then, we went to Navy Federal to see about taking out a loan for the wedding. Except, they said I need to be a Navy Federal account holder to take out a loan. To be a Navy Federal account holder, I need to either live or be married to an active duty soldier. Except, I can’t live with Andy because as an enlisted soldier he needs to live in the barracks until we are married, and we can’t get married until we have a wedding, which is why we are trying to take out a loan in the first place. Argh! We finally just decided that each of us would take out a smaller loan at our own banks, and pool the money together for our wedding/honeymoon/furniture.
As we were stopped at the credit union, we saw a Google street car!!!! I wanted to be on Google, so I made Andy chase the car around Radcliff for a while.
We also found my home away from home aka LifeWay. While we were there, we found some wedding thank you cards (that the Owensboro store doesn’t have!) on sale. They ended up being $0.33 a card, much cheaper than the stationery I found online. It doesn’t match our wedding colors, but I honestly am to the point where I don’t care about minor details like that.
