Oh dear Blog, I am so sorry for neglecting you! School was to blame. Seriously. For the past few weeks I have been sooo overwhelmed with schoolwork and being a housewife (ever since I quit working I am pretty sure I have lost my mind, I forget to turn off the engine while filling the car up, I constantly leave the keys on the front seat when I leave the car, I leave my blender on the stove and completely melt it, urgh but I digress...)

So for those of you who follow me on twitter and even Facebook, you probably know a little what is going on in my life, but if you don't, here it goes!

My husband dropped and broke my DSLR camera, so it sits in pieces on our dinning room table =[.
Since we cannot afford to fix it right now, the holidays will be pretty low on pictures this year.

Thanksgiving was at our apartment. It was such a great time! 8 people in our little apartment. Our dining table only seats 4, so we got pretty creative with it. We also did a very non-traditional Thanksgiving. We has a seafood Thanksgiving. Oh it was soooo delishhh.

It's Christmas time! And we have gotten into the holiday spirit at our house. Since this is our first Christmas together we do not have much decorations (they are expensive! I plan on going after Christmas and stocking up!) but we do have a fabulous tree...

It took us hoursss and 2,500 lights to light up this beast!

I also made this fabulous wreath with my lovely friend Erin (thanks Pinterest!)

I have finally finished this Semester. Longest 8 week session of my life! But I finally get to sell this nasty stack of books and get them out of my life!

I watched this documentary on Netflix, "Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead" (oh it is soo good! you have to watch it) basically it convinced me to go on a juice fast and I convinced T to do it with me. My plan was to fast for 10 days but after 4 days of just this...
We broke down and had to eat real food. But in the 4 days, I could tell I lost weight (we do not have a scale) I just wish I had the willpower to do the whole 10 days. But it was a good, eating healthy jump start.

Some more exciting stuff has happened but I am going to save that for another post. It's such a big deal it deserves its own post.

I love you all and I hope you all have a fabulous holidays with your friends and family!

Ever since I have started school I have lost my want to blog. 1, all I do is schoolwork. My life has become the most boring, and loser-ish life imaginable. The only time I leave the house it to take T to and from work (yup, the truck is still broken down) or to go to the grocery store. I literally get zero human interaction so I have nothing interesting to blog about. 2, in the rare occasion I think of something to blog, after I am done with schoolwork I do not even want to look at a computer. I spend so much of the day reading lessons, writing discussion boards, writing papers on the computer my eyes are spent.

Hopefully I can get back into this because I love my blog, the blogs I follow and all my dear followers but I am just in a blogging rut.

Who is with me?!

Well, for obvious reasons, the Middle East has been completely ruined for my husband. So my question to you is...

Who wants to go to Abu Dhabi with me?!

I WILL go there one day...

21 years, 4 Halloweens...

Well, it is Halloween and everyone is posting about their present and past Halloweens. I have very mixed emotions about Halloween. Let me take you back to my childhood... (haha this won't get all sad or sappy I promise)

I was never allowed to celebrate Halloween growing up. As apart of my parents religion secular holidays were not allowed (like on Easter I have never painted an egg or gone on a Easter egg hunt and, still to this day, I never have). With that being said, I never got to dress up or, trick or treat until one year I decided I was going to be a normal teenager and go trick or treating (I later learned that 16 is a tad too old to trick or treat but whatever). I begged my mom to let me "Just pass out candy" with my friend. She let me go and from my friends house we left and went trick or treating! It was so fabulous and I couldn't believe I had been missing out for the past 16 years! (Fun fact of firsts, this year was the first time I carved a pumpkin)

As this year's Halloween has come, T and I are doing nothing. No parties this past weekend, no handing out candy, just hanging out with each other. This year is an ode to my past and oddly enough, I am enjoying it. Is it possible to grow out of a "holiday" when you were so deprived from it as a child? If so, I think that is what is happening. I used to sit at my window as a kid and watch all the costumed children, go door to door, having a blast doing it. But now, I think I have lost my feverish need to participate in Halloween.

Worst Way To Pick Up A Woman

Literally, this is the WORST way to pick up someone. Some guy called me, I answered, it was the wrong number, I hung up.

Then this happened...
(I would have posted this sooner but it literally took me a week to figure out how to take a screenshot haha)

I wonder if he tries to pick up all girls this way, and if it actually works?

Love it, Hate it, Leave it

Let me tell you the story about this...thing...

(It normally doesn't look this poopy...It's just all salty from our last winter visit to Utah)

First off, let me tell you, I have a love hate relationship with my husbands truck. It is sooo comfortable, safe (my car is so light it get pushed around the road easily) and the best car to travel in (heated seats in Utah winters, I think soo) BUT this car gives us NOTHING but problems!

Let me give you some back story about this vehicle. My husband was 19 and it was his first week in California. Him and his friend decided to take the bus into town one weekend. Well, the bus took 3 hours for a drive that takes about 20 minutes by a personal vehicle. T's friend decided he NEVER wanted to do that again and they were off to the first dealership in town, 500 Motors (they were on the Navy "do not go" list, and since they were closed by the BBB). T's friend didn't find a car he wanted so on the spot my husband decided HE was going to buy a car. He found a little red car he thought was okay, and began to sign papers. 

Suddenly, a few papers in, my husband got cold feet (righfully so, he was about to buy a car on a whim!)and told the salesman he didn't want the car. This is when the salesman breaks the news...

"Sorry Man, you've already bought the car... If you want to get another car you can but you have to buy a car today because you've signed the papers."

What bullcrap! But my young silly husband believed him. He went back onto the lot and pointed at the truck and bought it right on the spot. Didn't sit inside, didn't take it for a test drive, didn't even look at the odometer. So he bought a ten year old F150, with 100,000+ miles on it, for $14,000 with 16% financing (thankfully we paid the truck off last year so we officially OWN it)

So we have this truck... and it is a fabulous car, when it was brand new it was top of the line but now it has become a money pit. It has a brand new transmission but that is about all that it has going for it. It seems like every month we have to fix something on it. I am not even going to get into the long laundry list of problems we've had with this thing. But currently the AC door, and the AC belt (it sounds TERRIBLE when the car is running) are broken and just last week it has decided not to start!

I am trying to convince T to sell the darn thing before it COMPLETELY dies on us.

Yesterday he said, 
"It's good to have 2 cars when 1 breaks down"
My response,
"Well, why don't we get rid of the car that is always breaking down?"

Delainey for the win! My car has NEVER, knock on wood, has any problems, everrrr and it too is paid off, so added plus there!

By selling the truck we can totally put the money in savings for our move to San Fran. PLUS, there is no way we need two cars up there anyway, especially a truck. And with me not working now, one car will suit us just fine. I am going to plant a new seed every day until I can convince T to sell his baby. Hopefully by Christmas the truck will be gone. Fingers crossed!

My Not So Bucket-y, Bucket List...

The other day my husband and I were talking about our future (we've been doing that a lot lately since T gets out of the military soon) and I brought up the idea of making different lists for our life. It will consist of thing we want, and plan to accomplish. I haven't finished my OFFICIAL bucket list (all the things I want to do before I die) but I have completed my "Before Baby Bucket List" (all the things I want to accomplish before I have to become unselfish a mommy for the rest of my life ).

Here it is!

Before Baby Bucket List
1.Take a USA road-trip (and go wherever the wind takes us)
2. Complete Batchelors degree 
3. Obtain teaching credentials (multiple and hopefully single subject) 
4. Get a CAREER!
5. Complete Masters degree in Education
6. Travel to at least one country in Europe

I guess making bucket lists together are apart of being Forever Newlywed <3

What's YOUR Song?

It's been a while since I have linked up with Goodnight Moon so here we GOOOOO.

I am pretty much in LOVE with Lily Allen. Her music is fun, witty and socially relevant. When this song, Everyone's At It, came on my Pandora I was automatically hooked.  Enjoy!

Michael Jackson's Biggest Fan

Guess what?! I am finally blogging from my own laptop! I start school next week so I was FORCED to get one. Don't get me wrong, I am super excited to have my own computer again (sharing the MAC wasn't too great and T's old laptop is so jacked up I refused to use it), I just super duper hate spending money. So now I can blog on a more regular basis (unless school takes over my life, which it just might).

This past week was pretty fabulous. My fabulous mother & sister in-law came into town along with T's best friend. T took a week of leave and we PARTIEDDDD (seriously, it was a really good time).

I want to talk about how fabulous my Mother in-law is...

Not because she made me this fabulous apron...
 Or bought me this fabulous cook book (seriously, every recipe I have tried has been so delish!) 
(are you sick of the word fabulous yet? haha)

But because of her indescribable obsession of Michael Jackson. She is his ultimate fan! She was able to get tickets to his last tour in London (which was sold out in hours). So that's amazing-ness #1.

Amazing-ness #2, when he died she drove all the way from Utah to California to be amidst all the Jackson fans. She also entered the lottery to be able to attend his memorial service. She didn't win the lottery BUT she met a woman who won the lottery but couldn't use her tickets, so she gave my mother in-law her tickets for free ( which is crazy in it's self because people were selling them for crazyyy amounts of money). She got into his memorial service!

Amazing-ness #3, this past week week when everyone was in town she wanted to go to LA and enter the lottery to get into Michael Jackson's death trial. And guess what, she got in! Her luck NEVER runs out!

I don't think I have ever met someone who has loved someone as much as my Mother in-law loves Michael Jackson. And someone with such good luck.

Friday, October 7, 2011


Well, yesterday was my last day at work. I will never be making that hour commute ever again. I will never advise this Student Government again...

I will never sit at this desk ever again...

I will never have bosses as cool as the ones I had (seriously, I don't think I will ever get that lucky ever again). 

I feel weird and naked without a job. I just don't want people to be all judgy judgy about me not working (some people are actually like that). But with that being said I am so excited to just be able to focus on school and give my classes all my effort. Things are going to get pretty tight around our house but T and I decided that it was an important sacrifice.

This is the start to a new adventure!

Monday, October 3, 2011


Oh my gosh. I am dyinggggggg. T and I have decided to start eating healthier and working out on a regular basis. We've both gained a little weight (I seriously have been sausag-ing myself into my clothes) that we would like to see disappear. I avidly disapprove of diets because I like food way too much to restrict myself from it. Since I have been slacking at the gym (and by slacking I mean not even going) I have done the unthinkable. I am on a diet! And it is TERRIBLE. I am logging what I eat and I am not to exceed 1400 calories a day. It is so hard! Calories go by so fast! Right now, as I type, I have only 398 calories left for the day. My snacks are looking a lot like this....

Since this is the first day it has been so tough. Hopefully it gets easier as time goes on and hopefully I can get my butt to the gym!

I Am So Thankful!

Today my husband's old battalion deployed and I am soooo thankful my husband moved so he wouldn't have to go (some people have their own feelings about this so please, I don't want to hear it. T didn't want to deploy, someone else did, end of story). Today he would have been gone and I don't know how I could handle without him. Even though he annoys me when he plays computer games with his friends for hours, makes a mess in the kitchen or takes our name off the Navy Ball list without telling me (I am so mad about that! But were saving that for another day),  I am so thankful he can just be around. I am thankful I can be loved on by him, annoyed by him, share laughs with him and just be with him. Our house would be so silent and sad T. Moments like this are a reminder of how much I cherish moments with my husband.

I LOVE the Bar!

Okay, first of all I am not an alcoholic already! Haha, I just have a new found love for the bar after my birthday! My birthday was a blast (I promise I will stop talking about my birthday after this). First I had the day off so I did ABSOLUTELY nothing besides talking on the phone with my mom and make some soup. Then my wonderful husband cam home and told me I had to get ready NOW. I was kind of annoyed because I didn't know we were going out so early and I was now rushed to get ready.

We stopped at Walmart so I can legally buy my first rack of liquor. And naturally I don't get carded!! That would totally happen.

Then met up with KC and Kate at their house in Carlsbad. Kate and I were all dressed up and had no clue where we were going. We pre gamed a bit then we headed to the secrete location.

Turns out, the boys planned a nice dinner in San Diego for us (Kate is deploying this weekend so it was like her going away too).  We took this beauty...

courtesy of

The Coaster down to downtown San Diego. And fun fact if you are even in the San Diego area, you can drink on The Coaster! It was so much fun, we brought drinks, the people around us had drinks. It was a party train!

The train dropped us off a block from The W hotel where we had dinner reservations! (Those boys did good!). Dinner was so swanky and classy! And I ordered my first legal drink at a restaurant!

Guess what, I didn't get carded for that either!! I must look old or something. After dinner the boys smoked cigars and we caught the coaster back up to Carlsbad. (Kate had the pics but I don't want to bother her with her deploying so soon, she has lots on her plate!)

A little later our friends came over and we hit the bars! They were all within walking distance which was perfect! Eek. So much fun!

I fell, of course...

I definitely got carded at the bars so it made up for earlier. I also (and my husband probably hated this but I call it being thrifty) would walk up to the bar next to a guy and tell him it was my birthday. They would buy me a drink then Id walk back to my husband and friends. Haha I am the biggest jerk! But free drinks? I'll take it.  Our night of bar hopping ended at Dennys (naturally) and our friend's futon.

Overall it was an amazing birthday, with my amazing husband and my amazing friends!

I Am 21!

Normally on Fridays (because I work Tuesday through Thursday) I wake up around 8:30 or 9ish but today I woke up at 7! SEVEN! I feel like a little kid who wakes up SUPERRRR early on Christmas  because.... 


It is so crazy how time flies. It seems like it was just yesterday I was 18 years old, traveling all of Southern California with this boy I barely knew. Then my 19th birthday rolled around, a week before my wonderful boyfriend was about to deploy. Those were SAD times. And to be honest, I don't really remember doing anything for my 19th. My 19th I was so focused on spending on every last minute I could with T. And for my 20th my family was out of town (we did a birthday picnic before they left) so T surprised me at work the day of my birthday then T and I cooked a lovely dinner at their house, then that weekend we went to the aquarium.  

Now it is September 23rd, 2011 and I cannot believe its yet another birthday! I am excited and super blessed to have another year of life and to spend tonight with my WONDERFUL friends, my AMAZING husband, and my new BFF, the Bar!

Happy Friday!

Well, Hello Officer...

It has been a very long since I have been stopped or spoken to lectured by the Police (not including military police, last week we were stopped for a "random anti terror check" on base, don't even get me started on that!) I am pretty sure I was in high school the last time I was in trouble with the po'. I snuck out of my friends house and we were caught out past curfew with some boys. I was 16 and stupid haha. This weekend T and I had a lovely encounter with Carlsbad's finest. T had an assignment for film school where he had to go out and film his surroundings using different settings on his camera. Since my husband is OBSESSED with trains his first instinct was to hit up the train tracks. 

So we went to a railroad crossing in Carlsbad. Walked all over the tracks, hung off the light towers, T did some climbing....

About 20 minutes into our railroad extravaganza the Carlsbad Police shows up. Someone reported suspicious people on the railroad tracks. Yes that's right, suspicious...

And APPARENTLY being on the railroad tracks is a misdemeanor. Thats right, like a handcuffs and go to jail misdemeanor. Luckily the cop was a pretty cool guy and basically told us that he will run our info and if nothing came back on us he was just going to let us go. But he did want us to know that we were trespassing on government property and that if a train is going through there fast enough we can get sucked in and die.

Morbid. But I guess it was a good point. 

Anyway, since my husband and I are outstanding citizens our checks turned out clean and the officer told us that he was sorry to stop us from filming but we had to get off the tracks. Then he left

After we left we were amazed that someone called the cops on us! It was so weird but made for a good memory...

Does This Bother Anyone Else?

I hate being referred to as a "Dependent Wife". I hate the term. T's friends use it, and call me it every now and again. They use it when I make appointments or when I talk to Military One Source. "Are you active duty or a Dependent?" YUCK!  I even hate the term Dependent. I am not Dependent on my husband. I can make it in this world perfectly fine without him (even though I cannot imagine being without the love of my life). Bleh, what happened to just being a wife? I guess you throw that out the window when you marry into the military...

What Did I Do?!

So I have been wanting to quit my job for some while because

1. It is not anywhere close to what I want to be doing
2. I work only 20 hours a week and with a 45 minute commute it's not worth it anymore
3. Work was making me feel so down! I won't go into it because it is a LONGGG story but it was.

Anyway, T and I talked about it and before he was telling me that I need to work because we are broke. But the other day he said I can quit. SOOOOOO,  I did it! I put in my 2 month? notice. I am quitting in the end of October. I am so excited but scared at the same time. I am going to be unemployed... but I am excited that I get to focus on school. I am also going to find a VERY part time job down here. Something that is 10 hours a week, preferably in a preschool or classroom setting.

I am super excited yet mortified at the same time.

We will see how it goes!

I think it is sad that it takes a National Tragedy for most people to actually have some American Pride...

Happy Birthday! & How Pinteresting Wednesdays

So if you follow me on Facebook (and you should!) you would know that Sunday the 4th was this handsome man's 22nd birthday...

I am a little late (it's been hard to blog with work, classwork and one working laptop) but I am going to blog about it anyway. This weekend was pretty interesting. T's friend C. came to stay with us (because he's been stuck in the barracks for weeks recovering from shoulder surgery). Sunday during the day we went to Boomers with C. and another friend.  I must say,  being with those two guys and my husband was WEIRD. They both have whores for wives (or so I hear) so they were women hating pretty much the whole time. 1 is getting divorced but the other is just cheating on his wife that's cheating on him (seriously just get a divorce) anyway, that was pretty unenjoyable. Then Sunday night we had a party with a whole bunch of his friends. That was a good time, there was cake, pizza, drinks, music, dancing, hot tubing, searching for our drunk friend that wandered off. Overall it was a good time, even though our house as trashed the next morning.

Overall I know my hubby didn't have the best birthday weekend (his best friend was out of town and I couldn't buy him a present because we are so FREAKING poor right now) but it was something!

Now onto this!...

If you are not already following me in Pinterest you should! My linkydoo is somewhere over there


Here are a few things I am in love with this week!

I wish I ate this tonight for dinner...

I plan on redoing our "Family Wall" like this, so pretty!

I want to have a baby before T gets out
of the military just so we can do this!

"Some people are gay. Get over it"
Well said!

I Got In!

Yesterday I got accepted here:


I start in October. I am officially one step closer to my Bachelor's Degree.

What's Your Song

So on this past weekends adventure (for more about that terrible experience click here) my girl Courtney made a CD and this song was on it...

I have become OBSESSED! It reminds me a lot of what I thought when I first met my husband haha

Enjoy... and linkup at Goodnight Moon!

Wednesday, August 31, 2011


Okay! Cornfest has come and gone and I have come to the realization that I never want to go back again. BUT before I get into that I would like to update you on my feelings (yawnnn). Seriously though, it wont be that boring I promise. I am feeling so much better!!! I still don't have any friends down here but I am occupying my time with school and I have also picked up a few odd jobs here and there (so I can stop feeling useless). Anyway, the point I am trying to make is that I am pretty darn happy.

So you are probably wondering about the Cornfest. Well, let me just say it was the most miserable weekend of my life. First, we drove the truck in which the AC was broken in. We thought that we would be okay because on the way there we would mostly be traveling at night. The whole ride looked a lot like this...

Except WORSE. The tempature did not decrease as the night wore on, it INCREASED. At one point in was 110 degrees outside. No AC, 110 degree heat, leather seats equals most miserable car ride EVER.

So we get to Enterprise Thursday night and Friday we go straight to work husking, shucking, bagging and freezing corn so we can take home. That wasn't too bad, Courtney, Gina and I had a good time laughing and telling jokes. But I was pretty annoyed that T was ignoring me the whole time. This is what he does when he gets around his cousins and uncle. He completely ignores me and enters this LALA land with them.

Saturday was the actual Cornfest, and this day is stressful in general. Everyone is broken into groups and given tasks in 2 hour rotations. To make a long story short everyone is always mad at each-other at one point or another for "not working". And this year it really got on my nerves. I have come to the conclusion that I don't want to drive 8 hours, spend $200 in gas and work very hard all weekend to be in the midst of drama and to have people mad at me for "not working" and to have my husband TOTALLY ignore me.

On the plus side though, Courtney, Gina and I had a fun time exploring Enterprise, walking across the dam in the pitch black dark, finding cougars (the actual animal, not the man hunting old ladies), and trying to catch crawfish. If Courtney and Gina did not come with me I would have wanted to kill myself.

Once Sunday we rolled around I was quite excited to head home. We ghetto rigged the AC so it could blow semi cold air so we were able to ride with the windows up and in a semi cold car which was awesome. But then about 20 miles outside of Barstow we ended up getting a flat tire. So I wake T up and pull off to the side of the road. We hop out, him to fix the tire and me to keep him company.

 Of course it was 106 degrees outside, so T was a crabby patty the whole time. He pulled the flat tire off the car and threw it. But of course the tire lands tire side up and rolls down a hill. So me in my sandals track down this hill to push the tire back up. Naturally the tire lands in a pricker bush, so my feet and hands are getting cut up while trying to pick up this tire AND to top it off the tire is scalding hot! It was just a terrible experience all around! We were sooo happy to get home!

I am thankful for the tons of corn we now have in our freezer...

and for the corn I brought back for family and friends, but I am dead set on never going again...

Wednesday, August 24, 2011

Getting Ready for the Corn!

First I would like to thank all you wonderful ladies that commented on my last post. Your kind words and advice really meant the world to me! I wish you ladies were on the same coast as I! My feelings have been up and down but I am going to ACTIVELY try to make some MilSpouse friends. We will see how that goes...

Anyway, It is Cornfest time again! If you don't know what I am talking about checkout my post last year on it.

Cornfest 2010

I just finished half of my wedding Thank You cards (seriously, did it take everyone else forever to do theirs? I have been dreading doing them from beginning!) for the side of the family that will be there. Now we are about to pack and clean up the house. Right after work tomorrow we (TJ, me, Courtney and Gina) will be making the 6 hour drive to Enterprise, Utah, where the population is approximately 2,000 and there is 1 stoplight in the whole town (yes, that is a true fact) It's always nice to see family, Grandpa Holt's farm, eat LOTS of corn, and marvel at this tiny little town.

I will post pics after we get back!

I Don't Fit In...

I feel like I don't fit in anywhere. I don't fit in with my hometown friends because they are all off at college, having fun and hanging out every day. I don't fit in at work because I am still a student. I especially don't fit in with other military wives because I don't have any kids nor do I want any right now. I am having a really hard time trying to find my place SOMEWHERE and it is just not happening. It is making me really sad. Like every day sad. I am starting to think I am depressed...

Sunday, August 21, 2011

HELP.... San Francisco Here We Come!

Okay! Here's the deal. TJ and I are moving to San Francisco next June! That is right, we will be EAS-ing and living a NORMAL life! And by normal I mean, terrifying and unpredictable civilian life. Anyhow, I need anyone's help. Anyone that knows San Francisco.

Where the heck is a good place to live?! We are looking into buying a house (and by house I mean condo/townhome... we cant afford a house, house, then again, are there any house, houses in San Francisco?). I found a few homes we liked (and could afford) in the Bayview-Hunters point area but apparently there is a high crime/ murder rate there! T accused me of trying to move us into the ghetto but trust me, that is the last thing I want to do!

We are also looking outside the city but not too far from it because T's school is smack in the middle of San Francisco. Being from Orange County I am kind of picky about where we live. I want to live somewhere safe and desirable. Sooooo, any suggestions? We are going to visit over Labor Day Weekend but we need a place to begin!

P.S Our day today was exactly like this....

And it was perfect...

Excited for School!?

Oh boy! I start classes again next week. I am excited only for the fact that these are the last 3 classes I need before I can teach pre-school! And what is more awesome about that?! The fact that they are all 8 week classes. In 2 months I could start applying for jobs down by my house (for a much needed new job AND commute break). I have never been so excited to start classes at community college! 

As far as Brandman University, I am waiting to see if I can enroll in classes starting in October. Fingers crossed! If I don't get into Brandman I have no clue what my next move will be...

Happy Friday y'all (I never use y'all in real life but when blogging it seems appropriate!)

What an Awesome Weekend

Well I had the best weekend. Just what I needed to get myself out of my slump. First on Friday my friends Gina and Courtney (who I never see because they go to school in Idaho) came over. We first went to the beach. It wasn't really beach weather but we were determined so we headed to Del Mar on Camp Pendleton. My favorite moment happened at the beach. We were walking to the car and saw a guy in a shirt that said "Asains Love it" WELLLL, with Gina being half Asian we HAD to get her to take a pic with him. How did we do this? I went something like this....

Courtney: You need to take a pic with him Gina
Me: Yes dooo itt!!
Gina: I am not going to just go up to him and ask!
Me: Oh I will! Wait I'm nervous. No I am going to do it! (From 40 feet away) Hey, Hey HEYYY!! Come here! My firend is Asian and she wants to take a picture with you!
Random Marine: Haha okay.

It was an embarrassing and awkward moment for all parties involved.

Anyway, we laid out, gossiped, and had an epic water adventure. We basically got raped by the water and LOTSSS of boobs were exposed. Then we went out to dinner, ice-cream, Walmart, Redbox, played the PlayStation moton game thingy and watched a TERRIBLE movie. T said we were EXTREMELY loud all night but that just means we had a good time, right?

Then the next day my best friends from High School basketball came over. We went out to sushi (my favorite food of all time) gossiped (yes, I am a big gossiper, don't judge I know you do it too..) headed to the outlets did some "wishing we had $$ to buy clothes" then headed back to my place for some drinks and homemade ice-cream. It was perfect.

To top it off I went to dinner today (I know, I know, it wasn't the weekend) an old friend from High School Stephanie.

Being able to hang with friends really lifted my spirits. I am thankful to have such great people in my life!

Piss on the Navy....

T and I are both having a "Piss on the Navy" moment. It's evaluation time and Hubby got his eval back today. He got a "Must Promote" (last eval he go an "Early Promote"). He sat down with his Chief to go over the evaluation and to make a long story short, Chief told hubby that he deserves an "Early Promote" (since currently he works at an E5 level anyway), but since he is getting out in a year they gave it to somebody else.

Just hearing T tell me this pissed me off so much! So what if he's getting out in a year? What happened to rewarding those who earn it? GAH! Hubby was upset when I came home, and rightfully so.

So to cheer my husband up, and because he needed it for his classes at the Academy of Art, we bought this today...

 I'm super jealous! I want one too but we spent a whole paycheck on this puppy! Christmas maybe? Anyway, the lovely MacBook Pro took our minds off this stupid eval stuff...


I feel like I have been a super bad blogger lately. I just have not been inspired to write. Needless to say, I am in a mood.... It has been really hard to make friends down here and it's really bumming me out. I get super jealous when T goes out with his friends because I have nobody to call up and hang with really fast. It's pretty lame  I also really want to find another job because if one more person says "You're still here?!" I will seriously flip (I work at the community college I used to, and still, go to)

Anyway, these big parts of my life, Friends and Work, are totally sucking right now. So I need your help ladies, how did you make friends at your post?

A Mood...

I haven't been writing much because I have been in a "mood".For about half of the day I am genuinely happy. For the other half I have to try my hardest  to be happy and, without fail, there is a moment in everyday that I become extremely angry, uncomfortable, and sad. I am STRESSED OUT about so much. I feel like my life is going NOWHERE. To top it off I barely make any money anymore so one, I feel like this big useless burden on my husband and two, I feel SUPER POOR. To top it all off, now we have all this new crap to pay for. I am (most likely) starting Brandman University this fall as a full-time student at about 2k a trimester. My husband is starting classes, part time, at the Art Institute this fall (which is AWESOME and I am very excited for him) which is about 2k per class. We just got a $1200, yes that is not a typo, ONE THOUSAND TWO HUNDRED DOLLARS, phone bill for roaming charges in the Dominican (we paid for an overseas plan but NOBODY told us that our phones will use a BAGALLION kilobytes of data when it just sits there). I have been on the phone with Verizon for 3 consecutive days but everyone I speak to refuses to help.  We want to get the AC fixed on the truck before we go to the family Cornfest but that will cost a cool $700. It is funny how all these sudden charges show up when you have spent all your money on a Wedding.

Anyway, I am not sure if my sadness is all about money or I have some type of other emotional issue that makes our money woes bigger than they actually are (T thinks we will be perfectly fine). I just wish I could shake this feeling. It's terrible...

I Am A Bandwagoner!

I did it! I jumped on the Pinterest bandwagon! I actually heard of it not to long of ago after 3 ladies that I follow on twitter (and blogspot) were looking for invites. I was skeptical at first because I didn't quite know what it was and I was positive I would hate it if it was another social networking site. But it's not! I must say I LOVEEE it. It reminds me a lot of Tumblr (I am not a traitor I promise, I write a blog for work on Tumblr) and twitter mixed together (that probably makes no sense).

Anywayyyy, my point is follow me on Pinterest!

Did You Notice...

Notice something different?! The wonderful Brea from Utterly Chaotic Designs designed me a new blog design!! Isn't it gorgeous? My last yellow one was ALLLL jacked up! I told myself I would figure it out but that just wasn't possible for me (because I am totally computer illiterate). So I had the lovely Brea step in and take over, and she did an amazing job!

Be sure to stop by her site and check out all her other beautiful designs!

What's Your Song??

Of course I am linking up this week at Goodnight Moon. I really enjoy when rappers get all sentimental and make a song that isn't about bitches and hoes....

Wedding Pt. 4 Ceremony

I know I sad I was going to do this yesterday but I totally failed. I got distracted by Harry Potter (not because I love it but because I feel like I have to watch it to be a good American).

Anyway, ceremony pics, here we goooo!
