I'm a 27 yr old Marine Wife. I love my life, We have a dog now, and still praying that I could have a miracle baby to start our family. It's a crazy life but I wouldn't change it for anything in the world.
This is the Mr. he is the love of my life, my true soulmate. I couldn't have asked for a better man to marry. He is in the Marine Corps Reserves but trying to switch to active as soon as he can, he wants to live, breath, eat, & sleep in his uniform instead of only doing it one weekend a month.
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 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.
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.
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.
I can't believe we have been linking up with Amber over at Goodnight Moon5 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
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!!!!
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.
on my weight loss & working out goals...but now that Angel is leaving for AT (Annual Training) I will have more time for myself & will be able to do the P90X everyday & my Zumba fitness (which reminds me: Chelsey I haven't forgot about your dvd copies) as well.
I've lost 3 lbs though but I need to lose way more weight to look great for my friends wedding in October.
Now that I will have the place to myself it will be me time.
But when my husband is home I love to cuddle him & hangout as much as I can so I slack on the excercising, but I will be on my grind starting today & the rest of the time until October.
Hey bloggy world!!! Sorry I haven'twritten for a while but I have been reading all your blogs. So I had a great 4th of July, we were supposed to go to the go to the NJ State Fair on Friday but ended up knocking with the hubby while watching a movie on the couch.
Saturday we went to Staten Island so babes can get numbers for the payments he will be making for when he buys a bike. He is so excited to get a motorcycle. But just his luck the motorcycle store was closed for the holiday weekend. Went to another motorcycle mall here in Belleville, NJ actually only 5 mins away & got all the info he needed. We should've just went there in the first place...lol. But it was a good adventure & time in the car going to Staten Island.
Later on that night my goddaughter came to sleep over while her mommy went out on a date with her boyfriend. We were getting a lil practice with having kids because she is only 6 months. We had a good time playing with her & so did our puppy Hope.
Sunday our goddaughter was picked up & we just had a relaxing rainy day at home. We tried to go see Bad Teacher but the movie theater was too crowded & couldn't find a parking so we just went home. We got all our stuff ready for the lake on Monday.
Yesterday we got up around 5AM to be at the SIL house at 5:30AM so we can be on our way to the lake. We had to wait until 8AM to get in to the park & until 10AM. We had a great time, with family, food, music, friends & the sun (which by the way I got burned :(.....it hurts). We came back home early enough to rest & get ready to go see the fireworks at the local high school's football field. We took the puppy & she was terrified I felt so bad for the lil miss.
Sorry it got so long but I haven't updated you guys in a while.
PS~Things with the hubby & I are great, & this time apart that he will be out in the field for 2 1/2 wks will just make us stronger.
