50 Qs 9-12

  • To what degree have you actually controlled the course your life has taken?

  • I don't believe I have any control. Which is weird. Because I looooove control. There have been too many factors that have been coincidence or an act of God, that I can't say it was because of me. And I'm beginning to really love that :)

  • Are you more worried about doing things right, or doing the right things?

  • I think they're one in the same. I try to do the right things right! But overall, I'm more worried about doing the right things.

  • You’re having lunch with three people you respect and admire. They all start criticizing a close friend of yours, not knowing she is your friend. The criticism is distasteful and unjustified. What do you do?

  • Tell them to STFU. After letting them spill. Hey, they made me feel awkward, I'll do the same! But I'm going to let them finish so I can defend my friend, and let them know what they said that was wrong.

  • If you could offer a newborn child only one piece of advice, what would it be?

  • Take your time growing up. Childhood is over before you know it!

    50 Qs 5-8

  • What is the one thing you’d most like to change about the world?

  • War. Life would be so much easier without it! And I guess with that, I'd like all diplomacy to work and no reason to START any wars!

  • If happiness was the national currency, what kind of work would make you rich?

  • Working around animals. No doubt in my mind!

  • Are you doing what you believe in, or are you settling for what you are doing?

  • Kind of a mix of both. I don't know yet (still!) what I'd want to make a career, so I'm making my own spending money (I believe in doing that if possible) and supporting my husband in his endeavors (definitely not settling there!)

  • If the average human life span was 40 years, how would you live your life differently?

  • Ummm.... maybe have babies sooner??? I would probably try to succeed faster in life in some areas. And maybe would have created a bit less debt so that it wouldn't fall onto family members when I would die early.

    50Qs, 1-4

  • How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are? 

  • It's a mix! When I'm hyper and playing I'm about 5 years old. When I'm out and about I'm always the mom, looking to make sure everyone is ok. And my bedtime is that of a grandma (haha or a 5 year old!)

  • Which is worse, failing or never trying?

  • Never trying. You automatically fail if you don't try, but if you DO, you have the chance to succeed :)

  • If life is so short, why do we do so many things we don’t like and like so many things we don’t do?

  • Fear? Money? Not sure about this one. I think everything happens for a reason. Plus, life it just about what we "like" and "don't like". It's about living, learning, becoming a better person every day.

  • When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?

  • Does me talking nonstop count??? Haha probably. I really do hate taking risks, but I love my life and where it's going. I plan to continue doing what I'm doing and live life to its fullest capacity!!

    50 Qs... a new reason to post!

    Thanks, Mal for posting these :) It'll get me back in the blogging mindset!

  • How come the things that make you happy don’t make everyone happy?

  • If you had to move to a state or country besides the one you currently live in, where would you move and why?

  • Would you rather be a worried genius or a joyful simpleton?

  • What is your happiest childhood memory? What makes it so special?

  • In 5 years from now, will you remember what you did yesterday? What about the day before that? Or the day before that?

    Sometimes it just sucks

    I know I'll get through it. I have amazing friends, awesome freaking inlaws, and my own stubborn streak that'll get me through anything!!! This deployment WILL end. In less than a month, it'll be halfway over.

    But you know what sucks?

    Moments like right now. Where I can scarcely breathe. Where it feels as though my LUNGS miss Matt, and don't want to work without his gentle touch. I will survive. I am breathing. And I'm not crying, either. I'm continuing to count my blessings and thank God every single day for the permanent and fleeting gifts that I have seen and encountered.

    But man, I wish time would go by quickly DURING it. Yes, it's wonderful that when I can look back on it, I'll go, "Oh my! It seems so long as the time but it really flew!!!" Yea. Not so much right now!!!

    I miss you, Matty. You're my Duders, my lurver, my everything ♥

    PS. I got inked last night :)

    Holy Moly

    My husband is beyond amazing. This man, no matter what my image of myself is, always thinks I'm beautiful. Always manages to make me FEEL beautiful on my horrible "fat" days and everything!

    This past week, Kimberly Burke ( took some amazing photos. Most for Matt's eyes only, but this head shot I just had to let her post.

    I'm in awe.

    That's ME! The beautiful me that my husband sees me as every time he looks at me. And she captured it!!!

    Thank you, Kim (and Chelsie for wonderful makeup!!!). You have no idea how much this means to me to have captured how he makes me feel and made it real ♥

    I've fallen behind - Ten Good Things Tuesdays

    Well, Matt's deployed. Definitely NOT a good thing in my book, but that's why I haven't blogged in so long. I wanted to spend as much time as possible with my baby! Now the hard part... in the midst of already missing him like crazy, can I find ten things???

    1. I'm going to love my job! And how busy it'll keep me! So far so good :)
    2. My FattyMcFatFat just completely rocks. Love spending time with her!!
    3. Gizmo has been off meds for over a week now! And although her stool is definitely softer, it's not stinky and no blood! YAY!
    4. So far I haven't had any deployment insomnia. Knock on wood!
    5. I've gotten into watching Glee. And I LOVE it!
    6. I've already gotten one video chat with the hubs! And I THINK I got a call from him today but stupid me pressed text instead of the answer button and missed it :-p
    7. I have ingredients for salads. That and these Sargento sharp cheddar cheese sticks and I'm happy!
    8. Although I got burnt at the beach, I ONLY got burnt on my back! Woot?
    9. Matt's and my Disney movie collection is slowing growing, and I love it :)
    10. NEW CAR!!!! Need I say more??

    MilSpouse Fill-in (a day late :-p)

    MilSpouse Friday Fill-In

    1. Tell us about your dream that you would do regardless of pay.
    Working with animals. Potentially saving baby seals and such too. But something with animals for sure.

    2. What is your most prized material possession (kids and pets don't count)?
    Probably my laptop.

    3. What has been you favorite duty station and why?
    I luuuuuurve Lejeune! Everything about it :) But I also did like Quantico! I just didn't spend much time there. So I guess camp Lejeune it is!

    4. What is your least favorite chore?
    Laundry. I always hurt my back folding clothes. Go figure.

    5. If you could give one piece of advice to a teenager today (not specifically a MilTeen), what would it be?
    Stop being so dramatic. Because if you don't, you carry it into "real life" and then people have to deal with your drama even though you're 30 and should know better :-p

    Fed-up Five!

    Ok, so basically I'm fed-up with the government not being able to make up their minds. And what makes it worse? The fact that I'm hearing about it only literally 75% of people's statuses. I'm sick of the problem and the complaining! And yes, I'm freaking out too and in doing this blogpost am talking about it too :-p Ahhhh, the irony...

    Tuesday, April 5, 2011

    Ten Things Tuesday

    1. It's rainy and windy. And I LURVE it. Perfect lazy sleepy day feel!

    2. I MADE A PROFIT!!!!! At the craft fair that is :) And I just sold more today and have an order to do by the beginning of May!!!

    3. My husband is probably the most understanding, gentle, loving person in my life. I love him and all the modd swings he's putting up with, since strangely IM the one adjusting more to him being back form Mohave than he is!
    And I love these pictures :-p

    4. I ♥ Caroline Faye. That girl sees what I see, is a great cuddler, loves good times, and I can talk to about anything. She basically rocks my world :)

    5. I've removed myself from almost all the drama that has happened in the last couple weeks! There are still nuisances, but yay for being a grown-up :)

    6. It's warming up again! Last week was brutal, but now the warm days are back and Emmers is a happy camper!!!

    7. Matt has been working out in the guest room and putting some of his blankets and whatnot in there. And it doesn't smell bad, it just smells like him ♥ Haha maybe I'll be sleeping in the guest room at first once he deploys!

    8. Nevada in less than a week!

    9. This is probably the best good thing that's happened to me in the last week: Doritos is making Taco flavored ones again. OMG. HEAVEN. And no I don't mean the nasty "midnight taco" ones. I mean old school Taco flavor! AWESOME!

    10. Peachy is snuggled up on me and keeps snuggling even closer! She's so freaking cute ♥

    Marine Corps Monday 4

    This is sort of a repeat. But not fully.

    I love the sense of community in the Marine Corps (you know - minus the two-faced people, but I guess even they have their place here in life!). It was so nice that even though the guys had the day off, Matt and I still went into the office Friday for a then Gunny/now Master Sergeant's promotion ceremony. And I wasn't the only wife either! AND we got to be there for another promotion too!

    And I love being able to do that. Being able to stand with someone's wife, while another is taking pictures for them, and be involved in the pride of a promotion.

    Or knowing that if someone needs something, there are always people around that can help.

    And truthfully? Even knowing full well that some wives in the company don't like me at all, I'm really happy knowing that there will always be someone for someone to help and support. It might not be me, and that's perfectly fine! Haha that sounds selfish, but I do mean that there are many niches, many different communities. And in the end we all love and support our husbands and share that pride in what they do. :)

    Fed-Up Friday Four

    Two-faced-ness. Oh. Em. Gee. I really can't say any more than this. It just sucks. And I'm fed-up with it!!!!!

    Thursday, March 31, 2011

    Thirsty Thursday - OMG edition

    So I'm still craving BBCs. Matt and I have to change that asap, I believe. Think I can get Texas Roadhouse to make one Saturday night??? (Caroline you better be creeping my blog, lover!) Anywho, point being, not having a craving for anything besides a Pink Panther which I can't find the right recipe for online but I think was just tonic, vodka, and grenadine, I randomly started searching. And realized that SOMEONE needs to get this for me. Or yes, I'll get it for myself. And I want to find other shapes too!!!

    HOW AMAZING?!?!?!?!?!

    It would be perfect to put some of that Triple X or whatever sexually named pink liquer into it!!!

    Happy Thursday, everyone :)

    Wednesday, March 30, 2011

    Whatever you snap, post! Wednesdays

    Here we go :) A few from tonight! I heart my family ♥

    Deep in thought!

    Might not be much thought in there... but she's freaking cute ;)

    "String! I want the string!!!"

    Haha this is actually a candid :)

    Ten Good Things Tuesdays 3

    This past week has been great, so here's the list:

    1. My hubby is with me for a month!!! Yay!!! So glad to have him home :-D

    2. I'm almost done with crocheting craploads of things before the craft fair. Only a few more days and then I get to crochet for loved ones and myself again!!! Here's hoping I make lots of money :-p

    3. My toes are hot pink. I love pedis ♥

    4. My friend's husband is coming home today, and I am SO thrilled for her!!! She's been a MAJOR trooper during the deployment and she deserves this day of happiness!

    5. Matt is going to help me make the first couple of care packages to send to himself once we get the address :)

    6. My background check is going through! Hopefully I'll be able to start work soon! (but not while Matt has leave. that would suck.)

    7. The rain washed away soooo much pollen. I can sort of breathe now :)

    8. I made lasagne all by myself and it tastes SOOOO good!

    9. I helped Matt make a "happy place" last night. It rocks :)

    10. I'm still in love with my keurig ♥

    Monday, March 28, 2011

    Marine Corps Monday 3

    What do I love about the Marine Corps? Well it's hard to say something bad since I just got my hubby back last night!!!! So I think I'll focus on him.

    I love that the Marine Corps has given my husband such pride that he'd get his tag info tatted on him. And he was a TROOPER for first time tat on the ribs! And it's also inspired me to get my next tattoo soon, probably right after they leave :)

    I did the photo social number opt-out with Paint. And I hate that those lines are straight but the picture is crooked and leads you to think the guy really didn't have any lines at all. Haha but he had the outline he stuck to it to go off of!

    Anywho, clearly I love my hubby! Glad he's all mine for a month or so :-D

    Friday, March 25, 2011


    Here's my picture to go with this. It's some of the first blooms around my house! It just LOOKS like the beginning of life too ♥

    Fed-Up Friday Number 3!

    Hmmm. I really don't have anything I'm super fed up with! Those who know me personally know the awesome breakdown I had this past week. Too many things that, on their own, just sucked a little, but built up over the last week, dear LORD it was too much to handle!
    Luckily I have awesome friends that love me though :)

    The one thing that I'm always fed up with though? This whole "wives don't have rank" but then wives try and make it so that we do... Guess what, guys, I'm going to hang out with whomever I want to that I get along with! I don't care if you're a PFC's wife or a Colonel's wife! If you're cool, you're good :)

    Thirsty Thursday!

    Now this recipe I NEED to get the ingredients for (in fact we already have one!)
    This was my faaaavorite drink to have when I'd go to St. John. SO good, nice and strong, but I could drink them all day! Ladies and Gents, the BBC:

    Yea, I can't post the picture, since it's copyrighted. But it's the perfect picture for it! And below is how to make it, I'll copy and paste that here: 

    BBC (Banana Bailey Colada) is a wonderful island drink. Equal parts
    baileys, rum, coco lopez and fresh bananas. Blender with ice and Top
    with fresh nutmeg.

    Whatever you snap, post! Wednesdays

    So I took four pictures. Enjoy the captions with them :-p

    My feet! Which will be pedicured on Friday, aka why there is lack of color :) But it's the first time I've worn these sandals all season!!!

    Look at her nose. Freaking pollen, bane of my existence! Thank god she's not allergic, right?

    This is a "how NOT to photograph something" picture. Notice lack of any legs that makes it look like she's floating... boo! But I wanted a picture of Peachy in and that ornery girl only gave me this shot!

    Love this view :) Things are getting greener, the air is nice and hot! LIFE IS GREAT!

    Ten Good Things Tuesdays Take Two

    Ahhhhh, I think my first of ten good things is:

    1. ALLITERATION! Seriously, how amazing does my blog title seem? And yes, this does make me happy :)

    2. I'm down to getting my dressing changed every other day and the wound is looking SO great!

    3. Less than a week and my man is hoooooome :-D This is a major major major big thing.

    4. I just got my two Christmas Scentsy warmers that I got for like 6 bucks off each in the mail. So I didn't have them last Christmas, but I got them for this year for cheaper :-D

    5. I made Matt a hardcover photo book for FREE (either raining hot coupons or the krazy koupon lady on fb). It's with all the pics Heartlove Photography  took for us last November :) It's HORRIBLY corny, saying things like, "We have no choice in the matter... we're perfect together" and "love me some snuggles!" and "can i look into those eyes just a few seconds more?" The last one is the worst, but it's also because of the deployment! I want to gaze into those eyes forever! Ok wait. The worst is actually "Let's go star gazing" I was drinking wine and that seemed to fit the pic, go figure :-p

    6. My A/C is on. YESSSSS see ya later, winter!!!!

    7. I got to stroke a one year olds hair and she fell asleep today. Gosh, I can't wait til I can do that with my own kids!!

    8. Turns out base maintenance has fire ant killer! Haha we went all summer dealing with millions of them and not even knowing! I'm happy that's getting taken care of AND they're going to hydro-seed my lawn!

    9. Can I put "awesome friends" in every Tuesday?? It never amazed me the quality of friends that I have made. Haha it also makes me realize more those that definitely choose not to interact with me. But those that do? Oh they're a LOVELY bunch and I love them all SO much!

    10. I was able to safely dispose of almost 10 bottles of unused meds (from all the freaking times they changed it on me to help me sleep) at the pharmacy this weekend! I love that they do "drug take-back" days!

    Monday, March 21, 2011

    Marine Corps Monday 2

    What else do I love about the Marine Corps?

    Right now, it's the excitement. I'm finally getting my husband back soon from Mohave, and although it's though with him gone, the excitement to get him back, to always have first kisses and hugs and whatnot.... it's just amazing! I always start grinning like crazy when I see him after he's been gone awhile, even when I think I'll keep my cool.

    Come oooooonnnn, weekend, let's go!!

    Friday, March 18, 2011

    Fed-up Friday 2

    I'm fed up with how communication SUCKS over long distances. Yes, I know it's the way it will always be. Am I happy that I can't tell if my husband is mad at me or said something endearingly or not? Nope. Not one bit. Sigh, it's days like today where I just freak out and become terrified that for whatever reason, he's going to come back home and not love me. And it's a totally irrational fear. But it's there, it's real, and it's terrifying...

    Thursday, March 17, 2011

    Crap! I'm behind!!!!

    So I'm doing Wednesday and Thursday together! Here's my pic from "yesterday" that's actually from today... got my wines of the month in the mail today! Ahhh, another month and then I'll be getting four bottles a month :-D I can't wait!!!

    And this is my Thirsty Thursday, dedicated to St Patrick's Day. 
    Green wine! Yippppeeee! 
    Easy to make too :-p Just add food coloring to white wine and enjoy!

    Ten Good Things Tuesdays

    This is EXACTLY what I need today! My brain keeps doing negative thoughts concerning money and whatnot, so let's see what's been good in my life :)

    1. I had an amazing time at the St Pattys Day Festival! Even being DD, it was still a blast, filled with laughs, surprises, and good friends :)

    2. I get to do Zumba tonight!!! It's been like two weeks since I last did cardio, basically because of the hole in my arm. But I've got a waterproof bandage of the hole and if I sweat that off, I'll have another one ready :)

    3. We're talking t-shirts at the volunteer meeting. I. Heart. Tshirts!!!

    4. Should be less than two weeks til my man gets back! Haha who really knows, but it SHOULD be!

    5. Speaking of the hole in my arm... it's healing! And YAY I'm finally off those nasty antibiotics! And YAY it wasn't MRSA!

    6. The cats are being quiet. I will totally take advantage of this moment ♥

    7. I've been staying busy! I think today is my first "down" day, and I still had to get my dressing changed and I have Zumba and the volunteer meeting tonight!

    8. I'm really reconnecting with God. I love our nightly chats before I fall asleep, where I know I can laugh, cry, scream, etc. about anything in my life. Always a good friend to talk to!

    9. My sister messaged me saying, pending a promotion, she wants to vacation down here in NC in June! I might actually have family visiting me!!! With two adorable nephews in tow, yay!!!

    10. It's getting warmer out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (cue happy dance!!)

    Marine Corps Monday

    It's my first Marine Corps Monday! What's something I love about this life even through all the hard parts?

    The friendship and support. In less than a year I've already found some great friends, haha while avoiding the drama seekers, and I love it :) They're the only one who really get all I'm about to go through. And some will be going through it with me!

    Fed-Up Friday Number 1!

    Right now, I'm fed-up with dramatic people. OK I'm ALWAYS fed-up with dramatic people. It's a pet peeve when you need something wrong with you for life to go on. When you NEED something to complain about, someone to piss off or get pissed at, etc. Chill! There are soooo many important things in life that you're missing by doing this! And great relationships you'l never have, and AMAZING people you'll never meet because you can't not start drama with said people!

    Ok and maybe I'll add a glad part to this, I feel too negative :-p

    I'm SO glad that I've got an amazing group of ladies in my life who feed off love, not drama :)

    New Posting series

    And I have no idea how long I'll have it go for. Basically I've been trying to figure out exactly what I wanted to do to keep my blog up and going in between my random bursts of creative writing flow (note: random = seldom. I love to write, but the biofreak in me wins a lot and I don't think everyone wants to see the pictures of the hold in my arm). So here is the list of what I'm going to try and do! And hopefully it'll keep me busy during the upcoming deployment, too!

    Marine Corps Mondays - Stolen from an awesome person and blogger, this is a day to say what positive things the Marine Corps has done for me! Including awesome things about the hubby :)

    Ten Good Things Tuesdays - Clearly what it says. A list of ten good things that have happened within the last week of my life. A way to stay positive. :)

    Whatever you snap, post! Wednesdays - A picture from the day, whether from my cell phone or nice camera. Most likely very random. :)

    Thirsty Thursdays - This will start out as a drink recipe that I want to make. Eventually once deployment and job money comes in and I can build a real bar stash, I'll hopefully make the drink and let you know how it comes out. :)

    Fed-Up Fridays - Yep. I have an optimistic day and a complaining day. What better way to welcome to weekend by getting rid of the negative that's been on my chest all week???

    I look forward to doing this! And YAY I get to start with Friday!
