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...

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

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