I am taking some good advice!

This week has been an off week for me and working out. It was all I could do to make myself get up and run and even then I have slacked on running. I have only managed to run twice this week even though those runs were amazing runs the best I have ran. However, I usually run 5 to 6 times a week so I feel like a huge slacker. I also only managed to get to the gym once this week. I was planning on going but I just never made it there. Thankfully I got some advice that I took and believe is true. My trainer told me "Rest this week and be ready to hit the gym again hard Monday. You can do it! Just listen to your body, if its tired then rest it."  The main thing I took from that was the listening to your body. I believe that my body is tired so this week I decided to let myself sleep in. I am ready for Monday to come back around and get back to it. I hope my body is also ready to get back at it! I always feel better after working out anyways. So just because I took a week off doesn't mean I am giving up its the last thing thats happening. I have come this far and ended up with some great results. I am ready for the next 2 months to pass to see what the results will be! Its amazing feeling I can't wait to hit my next goal!

ooo the little things

Before I got into bed the other night, I decided to spray the hubby's cologne. It made me think about just how much I miss the way he smells. It also made me sit back and think about all the little things that I miss. Sometimes its those little things we take for granite. While laying in bed I just held all these little things close to my heart and all I could do was miss him more. Its amazing how much you can miss those little things. Things so little you never thought you would miss it. Things that drove you nuts that you now find yourself missing those things.
I never thought I would miss tripping over my hubby's combat boots. I never thought I would miss seeing ACU's and PT's laying on the floor. These are just a few things that drove me nuts that I am missing now.
I of course miss everything bout him and miss him more and more each day. I will continue to hold all these little things close to my heart.

Things change

Sometimes in life things just change. Things you dont want to change. Things you never thought would change. But it happens.

A New Challenge

 Today while hanging out with a friend she made me realize I swear alot. This is something that made me say gosh...I really do swear alot.
 So my new challenge is to stop swearing. I already proved to myself this challenge is going to be a hard one and most likely a long one. However, I am up for this challenge. Swearing is not very lady-like anways, so I am going to do my best to cut these words out of my everyday vocabulary. My swearing is so bad that sometimes I don't even realize that I say it. I think its time to cut those nasty words out of my vocab.
Wish me luck! If you have any clever ideas to help me kick this bad habit please share!

I think I might just be Crazy!

So as of today I am going to school for two different things. I am taking on both of these at the same time. O gosh. I am going to still continue to do my classes and stuff to finish out the Medical Front Office Assistant & Administration Program through Florida Gulf University. I also have started the Medical Transcriptions and Editing Program through At-Home Professions.
I decided to do both one because the medical front office program is already paid for so I figure I might-as-well finish it. Two the medical transcriptions program will allow me to stay at home with our "someday" kids. I would love to be able to be a stay at home mommy and also be able to bring in income!
So whats the harm of doing both? The stress of it all, is probably the harm lol! So we will see how this goes.
Wish me Luck!!!

P.s. I forgot to mention that all of this is online! I think I will have to sit down and decide what days I do what and color code!

Family will always be there!

When my life seems to fall off the wagon for awhile. When I tend to get in those moods where I am just in a funk its nice to know that no matter what my hubby and family are always there. They are the ones who don't judge me and support me in everything I decide to do! They are the ones that wont walk out on me. They are the ones who still love me and still always there even when I am being bitch and moody.
I am so thankful for an amazing hubby and a wonderful family who stick by me through thick and thin! SO thankful for such amazing kind of love I have!

Everytime I think about stresses me out!

Thinking bout debt just stresses me out. Jeff and I are still pretty young. He will be 24 this year and I will be 23. However, I feel like we are in more debt then most people our age. I wonder how we ever got this far in?
Anyways I did a budget for the year. Thinking bout that stresses me out. A budget should be a good thing right? If so, why am do I stress every time I look at it? Maybe because I still see how much debt we have to pay off. I just don't know.
One thing I know is I need to just stop stressing on it. I have made a budget we are sticking to it. I just wish I was a millionaire! =)
I do know that after all of this, both Jeff and I, will have learned the hard way bout debt. I also know that it will be one of the best feelings in the world to have some of it paid off by the time he comes home.

The rain wasn't going to stop us!

Our concert was last night and man did we have a good time. It started raining once we got there and rained off and on all the night. But that didn't stop us from having a great time.
We had a blast! I am of course sharing some pictures with you! We met some awesome people there. We also had a miss hap. There was some crazy girl who just flat out punched one our friends because she bumped into her. Who does she think she is? That's what I want to know! Thank god for all of the amazing people around us who backed us girls all the way. I was not wanting to have to bail anyone out of jail last night! Even with that happening it still didn't bring us down! We had fun until the end of the night.
I am so happy that I had an amazing time with some even more amazing people. Thank god for friends like them! I love them all! =)

Now for the pictures. Enjoy!

Our new friend! The one in the hat! She was such a sweetheart.

Bring on the rain!

Rain you won't stop us!

Our friend!

This was just after they opened the doors for us to come in

Just to clear a few things up.

I know that my last post may come off the wrong way. When I said that "I never thought I would of felt the way I did today. I should of expected it I suppose." I was meaning that I never expected to feel sad once I got to my car. I never expected that the welcoming home ceremony would make me miss my husband sooo much more.
I know it may of came of that I didn't think I would of felt joy or happiness and that is far from what it was suppose to mean. I couldn't be happier for them. Its one of the best things to have your family whole and all together. I still tear up thinking bout how happy they were/are. It's happy tears of course! Because I know the feeling and I know tons of other people do too. Its one of the best feelings in the world.
Anyways I just wanted to clear that up. I also know that my last post is kind of all over the place and I am sorry for that also.

I never would of thought.....

Tonight one of my friends out here got to welcome home her soldier from a year long deployment. What a great way to spend the 4th of July, right? So I kept her company today to help pass the time. I also tagged along to the ceremony to take pictures for her! I am so happy for her and all of the other people who got to welcome home their loved ones. However, I never thought I would of felt the way I did today. I should of expected it I suppose. All day I was just so excited for them. In fact once they said they had just came in the gates I was starting to get nervous for them. I of coursed cried for them. I cried mainly because I was so happy for them. I was so happy that Tyler (their son) went right to his daddy. I haven't seen a kid so happy before. It melted my heart. How could it not make you cry?

But once I got to my car it was a different kind of cry, it was a sad cry. Sad because I just said "see you soon." I have a long time till I get that moment. It was just one of those things that hits you in the face and brings you to reality that deep down you miss him more than you ever thought you would. I don't mean to sound like rude, or whatever, I don't know what the right word is for it. I know this is probably selfish of me to feel this way but its how I feel.
Don't get me wrong. They done their time. It was time for them to come home. I am sooooooo Happy for them. I can't even begin to say just how happy I am that they finally made it through their year time.
Tonight pretty much was bittersweet; I am so happy and part of my heart is filled with joy for them. But the other part of my heart broke a little. Because I miss him. But I know soon enough it will be my time to welcome home my Soldier! I can't wait for that!

To all of those who came home tonight and all those who have been coming home through out this month. WELCOME HOME SOLDIERS! WELCOME HOME!

A crazy night but one that went into the memory book!

I know I haven't posted in awhile so I'll give you a quick update.
My mom and Dad made the 12-13 hour trip out here on the 29th of June and left bright and early this morning. It was very nice to have them out here. I really enjoyed the company!

Working out is still going great! We are running 3 miles now. It feels amazing to do so. I cant wait to see how I will look after this year deployment is over.

Now to get the point of this post.

Yesterday, we celebrated the 4th even though it was only the 3rd. Fort Carson does their fireworks on the 3rd. Anyways, we had a little cook out and then headed over to Fort Carson where they had all the stuff setup. It had started to rain on our way to post. So we found a parking spot to park. We just sat in the car until the rain stopped. We enjoyed people watching. After the rain let up we headed over to the park to the little festival they had setup. As we were walking around I ended up slipping in the mud and falling down. I was good at protecting my face from getting muddy though. Thank go for that. This was so embarrassing but all I could do was laugh. I mean what else could I have done. I should of pulled my two friends down with me since they thought it was the funniest thing in the world and snapping pictures. But,  I can't blame them I would of done the same thing. I suppose I'll share these pictures with you. It still cracks me up just thinking bout it. You can go ahead and laugh I don't mind.

I thought that was going to be the worse of the night. Boy was I wrong. We go to leave after the fireworks  and my car wont start. So I see the fire station is just right up the street. We start walking that way and we saw one of them pulled up so then we start running. At least I started running. I start saying excuse me and he isn't hearing me so finally I just yell "Hey Mr. Fireman." He finally turned around. =) He was so nice and agreed to help me. (probably because I looked like one hott mess.) He was nice I wished I would of had some cash on me to tip him for his help. Plus I love firefighters! So I enjoyed it a little  (shhh... don't tell my husband lol kidding he knows.)

Anyways, thankfully I have some great friends who helped make this night a great one. I am so glad I have people who can help me take a crappy situation into something we will be laughing at for years to come. Thanks chicky for making this something to laugh bout! I love ya!
