What's Your Song? Wk #10

Wow, we have been doing this for the past 10 wks =  2 1/2 months already, incredible how time flys. So if you haven't joined in on the fun go to Amber's blog from Goodnight Moon. 

Well anyways, I have 4 picks for this week, I just can't choose one. I have been in a R&B mood all week & that is all I have been listening to. I love all these R&B singers, I can listen to their music for hours, so I leave you with the 4 songs I have had them on repeat on my laptop.

Jon B ~ They Don't Know 

Tyrese ~ How You Gonna Act Like That

What's Your Song? Wk #9

How is everyone doing? We are on week #9 for the What's Your Song Link Up that Amber over at Goodnight Moon started. This is so much fun that I think that everyone should link up.

My choice for this week is I Gotta Be By Jagged Edge. This song takes me back 5 yrs ago when I first started dating my husband. He dedicated this song to me while we were sitting in front of my porch 5 summers ago. I never thought that we would be married 5 summers later.

I love this man so much, he is my entire world. I can't believe how wonderful he turned out to be & made me the happiest woman alive when he married me on June 11th, 2010.

So now I leave you guys with the song, I hope you all enjoy it.

My husband comes back fromArkansas today!!! I get to see his sexy self tonight. I have been really lonely this week that he has been gone for some reason. Usually I'm fine but this time was different. Then tomorrow morning I have to take him to the base at 0730 for formation then pick him up on Sunday.

But I'm still excited to see him today....yay!!!

What's Your Song? Wk # 8

Hey bloggy friends, we are here once again. We made it to week #8 of Amber's Song Link Up over at Goodnight Moon. I have had so much fun doing this & I can't wait to see everyone else's songs.

Now I leave you with my pick of the week. It is Can't Take My Eyes Off You by Lady Antebellum. I just love what this song says because it relates so much with my life. When I first started talking to my husband I had just gotten out of a bad relationship & wasn't looking for anything. Until he showed me what real love is & what it means to love someone. I have been alone this whole week until Sunday because Angel had to go to Arkansas for a week long training for his job. Then when he comes back on Friday I have to drive him to Picatinny Arsenal Army Base for his weekend of drill. I have been listening to music that reminds me of him but this song always takes me back to how things were in the beginning, I miss those days but I love what I have with him now too. I miss sleeping next to him & I just miss being goofy at home with him. So I hope you guys like this song just as much as I do, please enjoy.....

Awesome Lunch With Nutella

As you can tell that I just had an awesome lunch. I bought a jar of Nutella on Sunday & opened it today. I didn't have anything for lunch today from home so I improvised. There were left over bagels from the kids breakfast this morning, so I had one. I spread Nutella on the bagel put some on the side of my plate so I can eat them with my starberries, orange pieces & bananas. Along with an orange juice. It was so good that I think that is going to start being my breakfast whenever I have time at home. I wish I would've taken a picture of my plate so you can all see my wonderful lunch.

Wordless Wednesday

I have really been slacking off in working out & it hit me when my husband said, "that I have gotten comfortable since lately & don't workout" hurt my feelings a little bit, but it's very true. I have been slacking & really need to get back on my grind & getting back into shape. So this is what I will be doing for the next few months.

Wish me luck, I'm starting tonight & I know I'm going to be so sore tomorrow that even my fingers will hurt to type to let you know how it

Another busy weekend

So my family come up to Jersey from Maryland for the weekend to help my mom fix up the 1st flr apartment at her house. The chic that used to live there was so dirty & disgusting she moved (w/o letting my mom know ahead of time). I am angry to say that she was a friend of mine but I never knew she was going to act the way she did & have the apartment the way she did while she lived there. 

Anyways, my uncle Vic, my aunt Edith, my cousin Chris come from MD to help along with myself, Angel, his dad, my mom, & our friend Fabian all pitched in & fixed everything up. We painted & put down new carpet in the whole apartment. It looks great, we had a great team. I mean I'm extremely tired but it was all worth it in the end. 

I started on this whole project on Wednesday, Angel & I went to Home Depot to buy a lot of the things that we needed ex: paint, rollers, a new lock, blinds, tape, etc. Thursday & Friday I helped my mom clean the place before we took out the rug & started painting. We didn't go home until 11PM. Saturday morning we ran some errands before going back to my mom's & get started working again at 11AM until 11PM. Yesterday Angel left to Arkansas for his job training until Friday, only to come home & leave to drill that same night. So in the middle of working on the apartment I had to stop what I was doing to take him to the airport just to come back & work so more. We all called it a night at 4PM. We had a nice lil BBQ ate & my family was on their way back to Maryland around 6 & I finally got home to feed the dog & relax at 7PM. Skyped with Angel around 8 until we went out to dinner with the other guys he is sharing his rental car with for the week. 

Now, I am here at work hoping this week goes by fast so I can start my very much needed Spring Break next week. 

**On another note; I'm really craving Chipotle right now. I know really random but I am.....lmao**

Apartment Hunting

I know that moving is frustrating because I already did it once when my husband & I first got married. We moved into a basement studio. I mean we love it because it's our own place, our first place, but we really need a living room. We have a kitchen, dinning room, & our bedroom, we desperately need a living room because I hate when friends come over & we are all on chairs or the floor (I don't like ppl sitting on my bed) & it gets uncomfortable.

Now I have been looking for at least a 1 or 2 bedroom apartment for 2 months and nothing that we like yet. Hopefully we get to find soomething that we can stay there until we start looking or building our house. Our goal is to have our own house in about 5 yrs. Wish us luck.

What A Weekend....!

OMG, I have not been able to stop for 5 mins this whole weekend. It has been crazy. Since it was April Fool's on Friday the hubby decided that he would send me a text stating that his boss called him saying that the company he works for is waaaay over budget & need to make some cuts so he was getting laid off. At first my heart dropped but then I realized that it was all a joke because of it being April Fool's Day. Then while I was on my way to pick the hubby up from work he calls me again. He tells me that there has been a accident at work. When he opened to back doors to a tractor trailer the hand truck wasn't tied down properly & on the ride back from their job site it moved, so when he opens the doors it fell on his head. He had an open wound. I thought he was joking since just a 1/2 hr before he was trying to play a joke on me. I have a picture of it but it's gross. It looks worse in the picture than what it actually really is. That was our friday.

We woke up early finished going over the finally decisions of our wedding pictures to go meet with the wedding photographer. After that we went to help my SIL move, went to visit his cousin & my mom that live around the corner from us, and after all of that we went home to cook so we could eat & feed our puppy Hope who has gotten so big since we got her 2 months ago. 

Sorry for the poor quality picture my phone is acting


We went to breakfast with my friend/boss that invited us to because she wanted to talk to us. I told her that I really thought I was getting laid off for the But thank God we got great news, she asked us if we can be her daughters god-parents and of course we said yes. After our lovely breakfast we went to help my aunt move into her new place we were there most of the day until around 6. We went home after that to unwind from our busy weekend & watched Army Wives along with Coming Home right after but I just couldn't anymore, I had to sleep. Now to start a busy day at work with no stopping either.

Our beautiful Goddaughter on St Patrick's Day.
