Why Can't We All Get Along

So I went to Maryland that Friday after thanksgiving and my husband decided not to go after he had originally said he was going. But anyways, that is besides the point because we spoke about that after I came back home on Sunday because I was hurt that he then decided to stay because of his cousin from NC surprised us. I felt as if I was put on the back burner just so he can be with his family. I really wanted him to come with me to the party. Well he didn't and we spoke about how I felt and everything and we got over everything. So my mother decided she want to bring it up again yesterday.and this time tell my husband what she thought about the whole situation. Obviously, my husband got mad and tell her how he felt but wasn't disrespectful and I just wanted both of them to stop talking about the whole situation because I didn't want it to escalate. I just hate being in the middle of the problem. I just wish that they could get along and get over their problem with each other. Maybe one day.......

Our First Thanksgiving At Our Place

Well as you guess got from the title we had Thanksgiving at our place this year. We finally have a big enough place to have people over to enjoy the holiday. We had 16 people in total all together, I was running around like a kitchen without a head all week & working. But in the end it was all worth it, just to be able to spend Thanksgiving with my husband, my mother, & the rest of the family. We even had a surprise come from NC. My husbands cousin came for Thanksgiving and his wife went to Florida to see his family. 


All in all it was a great day with a lot of ups and downs but we loved have Thanksgiving at our place for the first time.

Marine Corps Ball

Hey loves, so the Marine Corps Ball; for my husbands company was last Saturday (11/19/11). We had an awesome time, the dj was way better then last year & the food was great. The guest speaker was a retired Marine who served our country for 30 yrs and loved it. He was such an inspiration to the guys. The video that they played this year at the ball was so moving and touching,  I know there were many ppl crying because I was since they were talking about the Sept 11th attacks. 

I know I had said we were going to stay at the hotel & they were supposed to do something nice for us but we ended up leaving at the end of the night because we needed the money that we were going to use to pay for the room to fix my cars axle. So no hotel stay for us :( !!

OH I forgot to tell you, while the ceremony was going on one of the Marines that was standing next to the cake was falling asleep, so one of my husband's squad leaders got up and switched places with him. I just hope he went alone because he was going to be embarassed in front of his guest if he wasn't after the ceremony. 

Now, I'll leave you with a picture.

Almost That Time Again......

for the Maine Corps Ball. Ours is this Saturday the 18th, & I am so excited to go because now this year my hubby has friends in his company & gets along with most of them. Now that means I will get to meet wives, and hopefully make new friends. I'm also excited because we are staying at the hotel and I called the desk for a reservation & asked them if they can do something special for us since we didnt get to do anything for our 1 year wedding anniversary since the hubby was away training. They said yes & that we will be surprised when we go to our room.....I can't wait to see what they have in stored for us.

I will keep everyone updated.

Marine Ball Here I Come

I can't believe that the ball is in 2 wks for us. We are staying at the hotel this time around, & I am so excited. I already have my dress & let me tell you I have only lost 8 lbs this month but I think I look good in my dress. I already have my shoes. All I have to do that day is get my hair and nails done. 

I even told the hotel if they can do something special for us since my husband wasn't home this yr to celebrate our wedding anniversary & they are going to surprise us, which I think is awesome considering it is 5 months after our wedding anniversary. I will take lots of pictures to show all of you what they did & how the ball turned out.

Better Weekend Then Last Weekend

Original written date 9/26/11:


So my UTI is gone....woohoo! And Friday I went to my cousin in laws 19th B-Day party, we had a blast. Then as her birthday gift we went to the Enrique Iglesias Euphoria concert, with 2 participating artists that were on tour with him; Pitbull & Prince Royce. When we bought the txts there were only the ones in the nose bleed section but we didn't care we were gonna make the best of our time there. Luckily for us we went to buy some memorabilia from the concert and tried to see if we can find some empty seats. And jackpot we hit the mother load and found awesome seats on the lower level instead of the second upper level. We had an awesome time. Our move was definitely worth it.

Sorry this post is so short but I promise I will update you more me later.

This Weekend Sucked.....

So Wednesday night I get home from the gym and finish up dinner for the hubby when all of a sudden I get these horrible excruciating pain in my lower abdominal area. Then I have nausea but it all goes away by 10. Thursday night the same thing but this time I was at the gym, so I finished my class early went to kmart and got a pregnancy test. I took it and of course negative like always, so I went to bed early and tried to sleep even though the pain wasn't letting me. So finally Friday morning at 6:30 I get a phone call from my hubby at work asking me how I was feeling. I told him I wanted to go to the hospital. So what I told him was to go to work (he was going to come back home to be with me at the hospital) and if I was still in pain I would leave early and go to the hospital. So I went to work and I ended up leaving at 12 and by 1:30 my best friend had me in the ER. If it wasn't for her I don't think I would've gone. She drove me there and back home.

They took my vitals and then a few mins later I was taken to a room to get tests done. At first they thought I might have had a ruptured cyst, but lucky it was only a bladder infection. The hubby came home from work and got my prescription for me. What made my weekend worse was that the hubby had drill THIS weekend too. So he left on Saturday came back in the night and went back on Sunday. But lucky he came home early since they had family day for his company and pampered me like no other. I love when he is so sweet and nurturing with me. Well that's an update on me.

Finally Joined The Gym

Hey my loves, how is everyone. I just want to start this post off by saying I'm sorry I haven't been posting or reading another. It's just, like my title says I joined the gym.

After all the time I kept making excuses for myself And saying I was going to work out at home I failed miserably. I wasn't getting motivated until I had along talk with my husband one night and he made me realize that I had to change my lifestyle. He was the one that opened my eyes. So that very same day I got off my butt and joined the gym. I know this would work because I was able to lose 30 lbs before my wedding in 3 months, while the hubby was in boot. I love going to their classes and the plus side is that it's an all women's gym so I don't have to feel even more insecure because there are men looking at the mess that I am. So now I am going to wake up at 5 am do P90X in the morning before work and go to the classes at least 5-6 days a wk and rest on Sunday. I am trying to lose another 30 lbs by New Years for my 25th on January 2nd.

Friday Fill In





1. My plans for this weekend include enjoying my extra day off from work, and spending time with the hubby.
2. I consider the Labor Day holiday the end of summer. Which sucks I know that snow will be here soon. I hate shoveling snow.
3. My favorite meal for cookouts is a good burger, some grilled meats, white rice, a honduran spread called chimole, and some avocado. Then some ice cream to finish everything off
4. So far, my favorite part of summer has been getting a tan & finding a better paying job.
5. When it comes to deployments, my philosophy is I will let you guys know when I go through a deployment with the hubby.

Surprise Homecoming from My Husband!

So as most of you know my husband has been out in the field & I was supposed to go pick him up this past Sunday morning. Well, on Friday night I was talking to him & he told me that they extended his stay for a night. He had just gotten to the base that night from training at Ft. Drum in NY. I was telling him how much it sucked but that I couldn't wait to go pick him up on Sunday morning. I didn't know why but you know that Marine Corps always have a change of plans so I didn't think anything of it.  

My mom stood over my house Friday night because her whole block lost power do to the heat wave, so after I finished talking to my hubby we went to sleep around 12 or so. Around 8 in the morning I hear a knock at my door & I hear Hope barking (she only does that when there are people at the door) like crazy. So the Hubby surprised me by waking up to him knocking at the door that morning. Best wake up call ever. Like I said before I was going to pick him up at the base (Picatinny Aresenal) on Sunday but my Bro-In-Law was in on it and brought him to me at 8AM. I was supposed to go to the pool but I completely changed my mind about that.....lol

I love you baby having you at the door Saturday morning was the best surprise EVER!!!

I Got A New Job!!!!

I am so excited to tell you guys that my search is over. I actually ended up taking the job from Tuesday's call back. I am so excited to be getting paid more & to start somewhere new but I am also extremely sad to leave all the friends that I have here.


I will miss everyone I work with at the Preschool but I need to think about me & our future. We need to start saving because we would love to put money down for a house. Our plan is buy a house in 5 years but with what I was getting paid we always just had enough to pay bills & buy necessary things for the house, but now we are going to have more then enough. 


I was talking to the hubby 2 nights ago & I hope that we get pregnant soon now that we are financially ready to have a baby. 


Well, I just wanted to keep all you guys updated.

I finally....

got a call back from someone that I had a job interview on Tuesday. In case you don't know what I'm talking about you can read my post here to find out. I was offered a great salary to start & then after my first 30 days would be bumped up a $1. The only thing is that I have another job interview today & I would really like to see what they have to offer because the Doctor that called to come in for the interview told me he can crass train me to do EKGs, be a Medical Assistant, work the front desk, & do billing for their office. All of that would be great for me to learn & maybe I would get paid more then the job that was offered to me. 

Let's see how this job interview goes today & I will let you guys know if I ended up taking the job or not. 

Wish me luck!!

 

Happy Birthday Mr Camacho & 100th Post!


Today is my husband's 27th birthday & I can't be with him to clebrate yet thanks to the good ol' Marine Corps. He is still out in the field & won't be back until Saturday. Thank God it is this week because Admin had messed up the bus contracts & he had told me that he might have to stay for another week because the contract said they had to be picked up the 29th instead of the 22nd. I swear when he told me my heart sank, but I'm so happy that it was all worked out & I get to pick him up on Saturday & celebrate his Birthday.

I love you hunny I hope you make the best out of today with your brothers in arms!!!



I CAN'T BELIEVE THIS IS MY 100TH POST!!!!

When I started this blog back in October of 2010 I didn't think that I would have written so much, & poured out my heart for everyone to read, let alone for me to have 32 followers. I appreaciate everyone of you that read what I have to say.

I'm so happy that I have become friends & have come to get to know so many Military Wives. I even meet a great friend from the bloggy world. She even came out to my place for dinner & have a few laughs. We have become so close & I am glad that I was able to find a great friend in her.

The blog world has been so incredibly supportive when I was having problems with my husband (which we are great by the way) & gave me such encouraging words. I will continue to write & read all the blog post that each & everyone of you write.

If you have read all 100 of my posts thank you!

What's Your Song? Week #22

I can't believe we have been linking up with Amber over at Goodnight Moon 5 1/2 months now. 

 
 I have one of the most fun songs to listen to right now. It's from a new artist but the style that he used in his song reminds me of the house parties I used to go to when I was younger & growing up with my older cousins that loved to hear house music. 

My song for today is Jason Derulo~Don't Wanna Go Home

Awesome Weekend

So I had a great weekend as you can tell fromt he title of my blog, unfortunatley I forgot my camera at home when I went to the pool on base so you wont get to see anything from Saturday but on Sunday we took pictures at Dorney Park.

So on Friday night I picked up my oldest niece so she can spend the weekend with me. I had plans so she can have a great weekend. We woke up late on Saturday, we had 30 mins to get ready pack the car up, pick up my cousin with her son, & my mom. Then we headed to the Arm Base where my husband is stationed. They have a great pool on base & of course it is so cheap for us military dependants that don't live on base. I was able to take 4 guests. We were there for a good 4 hrs. I went to the commissary bought things to make sandwiches and made our lunch. We went home just so I can get ready to go to an in-laws, after that rush back home because I had to baby sit my Goddaughter until her mama called & cancelled so my niece & I went home and watched Easy A until we knocked out.

Yesterday we got up early to get dressed & ready to pick up my Partna in Crime (Kim) & head out to Allentown, PA where Dorney Park is located. We had such an awesome time just us girls. We got to the park around 10:30 got on all the water rides and lounged by the pool to work on our tan. After all that swimming around & catching rays we got hungry so we went to the car to have some lunch & change into our dry clothes. We got ready & headed back to the park to enjoy all the roller coaster along with everythng else. We took some pictures so I will share with you.......












We had such a great time that I am going agin this coming Sunday with the hubby since he is finally coming back on Saturday from the field.....yay!!!!

What's Your Song? Link Up Wk #21

I'm back to the link up!! I'm so sorry that I haven't participated in the past few weeks, but I have had a lot of things going on lately. But now I'm back with full force. Everyone should go and link up with Amber from Goodnight Moon




The song that I choose for this week is Long Distance by Bruno Mars. Since I still have 10 days until I see him again. I know that is a little bit of time compared to a lot of you guys out there but we have been going through a lot & I just need him close to me in his arms where I feel safe & secure again. 


I LOVE YOU BABY, HURRY HOME!!

Wordless Wednesday


I miss my husband, I want him back. Even if it's just to watch him play on the Xbox 360 or his PS3 but as long as he would be here at home with me.
