if you had $30,000

If you had $30,000 fall into your lap(ah, how nice) how would you spend it? you cannot save it, and you cannot solely use it to pay off debt....

I would use the 1st $20,000 to buy my husband a new (less gas guzzling) SUV, The hubs badly wants the GMC Terrain, it gets 32 MPG.... compared to the 15 he gets now:
I would use the next $4,000 on braces, my teeth drive me CRAZY! and I cannot wait to get braces (though I worry my hubby will find them ugly, but hey, its only a year):
And lastly (and most vainly I will admit) I would get implants with the last $6,000, I realize not all women are a fan, but thats why we each have our own body!
These are not my boobs! -Thank you Google

When I was in college, @ Mississippi State University, I was a member a of a sorority, Zeta Tau Alpha, My (real) little sister,Emily, was also a ZTA while she was in college!  Since today is my sorority little sis's birthday I felt like it was a good time to share my sorority life with you all! and a happy birthday to Allison =)

Wordless Wednesday++++

An Oldie but a Goodie!
 Back when my husband was in BCT we found the 13 weeks of nothing but snail mail border line intolerable, so within week 2 we came up with this thing where on the back of the letter you would trace your hand and draw a heart in it, so when the other person received the letter you placed your hand on top and it was our way of holding hands through snail mail, it has now progressed to tracing the heart in your hand and clinching it tight - its how we "hold hands" from 800+ miles away. Whenever we're lonely, or miss that person, or stressed, it kinda grounds you back to what matters. Ha, I dunno I guess its our corny "thing"

not too busy

So i am def. not too busy to thank Cris, again, for being so patient and awesome in helping me with my blog! *HUGS*
I am also not too busy for a short VENT- GRRRR DISTANCE, seriously I know I am going to sound ridiculous cause its only been one month, but it feels like 4 x that long since I have seen my husband =(  I know I know there are so many people doing deployments right now, and my heart goes out to you all!

plate just too full!

Readers I apologize for my lack of posting this week, I have a test Wednesday ( my first of the semester ) and I feel like I just can't study enough for it!!!!!! Keep me in your prayers! Also I have a Math test on Thursday, can you feel my anxiety and stress through the computer?.... If I can get through this week passing both will be THE BEST feeling of accomplishment!

Printing ...

UGH ok so I have to print 200+ pages of notes for school and here is the problem, though I have a printer I dont have the ink or paper to do it or even all the programs (Works, Office, Word) to open them! @ school they charge you 10 cents a page to print...  its stressing me out bc I know I need the notes. Anyone have any experience with Kinkos?

Does anyone know?

I know military members themselves can get lasik eye surgery and the cost is covered 100% but does anyone know what the spouse coverage is if any?  I am like legally blind , and the cost of buying contacts is getting old! It would be so nice to get up in the morning and actually SEE, or to not have to deal with the irritation that contacts cause my eyes!

When will it end?!?!?!?!

"The Baggage" strikes again..... I blocked her on my facebook but we have a friend in common, so I found out that The Baggage ,whom we will refer to as TB, posted yet another lovely melo-dramatic "status" update through our friend. They typically dont leave much to the imagination for example this one was this weekend's

" When you hold resentment toward another, you are bound to that person or condition by an emotional link that is stronger than steel. Forgiveness is the only way to dissolve that link and get free."    

Then today there was this "status" update :

"obedience to God in a difficult situation will ultimately bear fruit, even though it looks like it might immediately cause hardship" 

I must say this one has me perplexed. I don't quite get the message she is trying to send. Yet I know its directed right at my husband and I, every quote she ever posts like this is(melo dramatic, deep, searching, passive-aggressive) they are weekly,and all have one focus, US! I got off facebook for about 6 months (my hubs is not on at all) and all the status updates like this stoppped completely, then the moment I get back on FB BOOM, TN turns into a crazy DrPhil!  For once one has really gotten to me- so maybe you all can help? What should I take from this "message".....

cute award!

I laughed when I got this cute award from my bloggy friend Cris because she is the one who designs my blog =) but I appreciate that she thinks it's awesome haha! I few blogs i think are awe are :

  • Marine Wife Unplugged
  • The Sand is Different here

First day back...sigh....

Well today was my first day back in my last year of Nursing school- oh how I dont miss the stress and anxiety! We already have a test this Thursday!... I am so very thankful for a husband that understands why I am at defcomm level of stress! Tonight I read 137 pages of assigned reading about infants, and while very interesting 137 pages is a tad excessive for one night, in the opinion of this Marine wife! Oh and lets not forgot the 26 math equations. Let the fun begin.... I hang in there for the promises of a paycheck =)

Ever had an ex that just wouldn't go away? I don't but my husband does. She makes these snide comments on facebook about us and HAS NOT EVEN DATED ANYONE ELSE SINCE MY HUSBAND DUMPED HER 5 YEARS AGO!!!! She caused ALOT of drama in the begining of our dating and I get crazy, rabbit boiling in the pot, stalker vibes from her.... I dunno maybe I am just fixated on the fact that its his EX which is always complicated. I wonder what he saw in her, how things were for them etc etc,mainly its just hard to know that at one point in time your husband loved another i know i know, obviously not as much or THEY would be married. Logically I know, but emotionally it still sux sometimes. It certainly doesn't help that she posts pictures of them on facebook from the past kissing, on the beach you know the usual couples stuff...., and her friends do the same. grrrr I CANNOT WAIT TO MOVE!!! It literally makes me sick to my stomach typing about it ="(

well heres how I chose to handle the "haters"

I thought about it for awhile, I have/had little to no drama in my life until and by me simply bringing up that some of the posting had gotten rather vile I got slammed with "We can say what we want how we want, its called free speech" bullshit, and the "I refuse to sugarcoat things, people who cant handle it should get tougher skin" First, I think both of those are lame excuses that rude, tactless people say to hide the fact that in reality they are just being a rude bitch, plane and simple. I suppose they are calling being polite, or showing restraint -"sugarcoating" their opinion. So I decided thats fine, you can continue to turn people off from this site that was originally intended to be a hub for spouses to gain information, support and friendship- none of which was occurring from these "posting bullies" but I will not be a part of it. It becomes exhausting being privately thanked for taking up for "less vocal" posters and slammed publicly by tactless posters. And since making this decision to leave a few weeks ago I have to admit I am a much happier person, all the bickering, the stories of cheating, the judging and caddyness- all out of my life now! I dont usually choose to run from things like this, but when you come to the conclusion that you are becoming less of a respectful person by stooping to their level, its time to go. I have no regrets and I hope for "newbies" concern that the site can get their act together, but I feel as long has there are the same set of stubborn posters on there, its probably won't happen for them.

Terrible weather

the past 2 days we had terrible weather, crackling lighting, booming thunder, rain so heavy you could barely see out the window! I have 2 opinions on bad weather- When I am out and about doing things I dread it, it makes moving around impossible and my hair...oh geez don't even start! (cough cough Afro) But on the other hand there are those days or nights that I get to stay in while all hell breaks loose outside, and there is something oddly peaceful about it. It almost justifies being lazy, and that was my past 2 days, doing nothing - how awesome! I made a lot of head way on the guest list to our "white wedding"- which on a totally different note- I find it so relaxing that we are already married, it makes this wedding one big celebratory party, and I look at planning in a totally different, less stressful light (that is until my mom and I bump heads against something I'm sure)
