Good news!

First lets start with the hubbs
 He is now Cpl Gonzalez!!

[I hope this is the patch thing=)]

He was a Lcpl, but he worked his butt off and put a goal for himself and he said that he would at least get out of the Marine Corps a Cpl. & I am So proud of him for accomplishing his goal.
I think though I was more excited,cuz I was yelling on the phone and smiling.Im so happy for him!!

Second
My momma bought me something and It made me cry,she already sees me as a teacher even though I still have two more years to go but I love that she already sees me as a  Teacher. She has very high hopes for Me just like my husband does,my husband makes me go to school even if it's just one day off. Which I cant say that about myself I used to beg Jaime to skip school and hangout with me for the day=)Anyways this is what she bought me=)

Isnt it awesome!!! I love it she made me cry and I cant wait to put it in my classroom:)


My Monday went horrible when it started but it turned out to be the best day yet!!!

Miscellany Monday (weekend edition)

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters


This weekend was a good and bad one, and yes It has something to do with my Awesomeistic(totally made that word up) husband.

Military sisters
On Friday Lucy came over to my house to we could go together to meet the other girls from the group and the lunch was SOO funny,those girls can be pretty hilarious after three alcoholic drinks:) It was so much fun!


Shopping
I wanna show ya'll a quick picture of my husband...He had just found out I went shopping....

Yep my wonderful husband! Hahaha(Love you baby)

Anyway his girls went shopping this past weekend and I dont mean just a little shopping I mean we did some serious shopping, only because megan and I seem to be growing:p
Megan and I had a awesome time shopping togther,Jaime is in for a treat when he gets back.

We bought some toy for Megan,clothes,a bedspread for Miss M, food,more clothes,matching shoes for Jaime and I(I know its lame but I could not help it),3 movies,and some other things. But my favorite thing that we bought was this book....


This book is probably the best book Ive read so far! Its a sad,funny kind of book. You all need to read it and If your like me wanting to know how they are here is the link to his blog and his flickr account,I felt so stalker-ish but the photos he takes of his daughter make me feel like Im not the only parent in the world taking about a bajillion pictures of my daughter=)

Megan especially loved the present that her dadda got her=)
She loves her little slide:)

Princess
Do ya'll remember when I wrote a post that my daughter is into the whole princess shananigans. Yup she now is into the dancing of a princess:)
hahaha she's so cute!! I wana say she wants to be a princess when she grows up:)

Camera lens
I am having a very had time to finding a camera lens, I know what I want to take pictures of but with what lens can I get the best of thos pictures, or do I need a really good program. Ugh! It's so frustrating! I want better pictures than the ones Im taking.

Bad news at a very early time
A marine from the Valley was wounded from an IED and of all the wives went nuts! We started saying oh my god was he from the company? what platoon was he is? What day? I mean we were just going crazy!  His name is De La Garza he's fine and the will be returning back sometimes soon they are still trhying to save his arms and legs but there was also a small detail Two others were killed with him. I was just going crazy this morning texting, calling, checking the news, I was going nuts that I forgot to eat breakfast. & if you really knew me, you'd know I LOVE my BREAKFAST! Part of the reason I went bulistic was because someone has already gotten hurt in my husbands unit so we were very scared. We later found it he was not in the company that my husband is in,so I felt a little relieved but still felt horrible for the families that were about to get the worst news possible. Please say a prayer tonight for those families.

What?! Thats my husband!!!!

Unlike other military wives I am unable to see my husband on skype so Its been two
 months since Ive actually look at him.
The company that my husband is in sends family members a newsletter every month filled with pictures of our Marines
and it is so amazing seeing them hard at work.

Last month my husband didnt come out in the newletter so It was more of an Ehhh
 last month.

But this month my husband FINALLY came out in some
 pictures, (Im only going to show one) & lets just say he does not look like my husband
at all!!

So Im going to show you a picture of my husband that I remember in my head and I will show you the new one.Ready?




This was the day he left for training

My hubby never gains weight and he's a pretty skinny guy.



Well get a load of now!!!.....


See the guy pinning the other guy?
 yeah thats my husband(the one with the safari looking hat)!!
 I know you cant see his face,but I spoke to him
 yesterday and he said that was him and I was like "what in the world!!!"
The person in the picture is HUGE!!
 I mean MAN looking, my husband is suppose to be a tiny little man.
 Now he is just buff!!!! with a huge chest.

I cant stop thinking of what he is going to look like when he comes home, to be absolutely truthful, Im scared and excited to see how different he is when he gets home:)Ahhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!


Seriously!?

Becky from Mrs. to Momma started a link up.
Just things during the week that make you think" SERIOUSLY!?"

 

Seriously?!.......Its going to be June in two weeks!Theses month are just flying by!!!!
I'll get to be with my husband again soon.

Seriously?!.......I spent 5 hours studing for my algebra exam for next week and I actually know how to do most of the work. which is shocking because If you really knew me you'd know that I am terrified of Algebra.

Seriously!.......My husband had not called in awhile and I finally heard from him yesterday it was so amazing hearing his voice! ♥

Seriously?!......I am surrounded my a bunch of guys in my classroom and OH MY GOD they smell gross, they really need to know what deodorant is. I seriously hate that class!

Seriously?!......my daughter is one smart cookie, and to make matters worse she out smarted me already.Lame on my part and Genius on hers:)

Seriously?!.......I am loving scentsy,I cannot get enough of it!I have to order more bars because Im running low on a specific bar that I absolutely LOVE!

Seriously?!....Why the heck does music have to be so expensive! I seriously dislike that Limewire is off.Grrr

Learning more and more about myself

Ever since I had my little girl
I was a stay at home mom and I did it for about a year and a half & it was
 wonderful.
& I could tell you right now it was the best time ever! I got to see
 many 'First times'=) and for that I am so blessed and thankful that my husband made that sacrifice for us=)

In the time I was a SAHM I learned alot about myself, as much as I enjoyed being
 a mother
I felt myself very unaccomplished,Im not saying that
 being a SAHM is an unaccomplished thing because Im not saying that at all.
Im saying for ME I felt unaccomplished mostly because I didnt finish what I had started a year and a half ago, I have goals for myself.

Jaime and I always had a plan, after he was done with school it would be my turn, so last fall  I started school and OH.MY.GOD. it felt so good to back at school I love learning about new things.

Recently I was off from school for a week and I found myself wishing I was back at school,how sad right?
I mean I do love to just be lazy with my little girl and clean all over the house but oh geez I get bored fast!

Recently I caught myself saying that I would like to be a SAHM after my second baby
is born,  but then I thought about it more and more and the Idea got old.

I dont think I was born to be a SAHM, I was born to be a teacher teaching children and one day maybe teaching my kids from home if they want. I cant be at home for the rest of my life, what would I talk about with my husband?lol

I think some woman were meant to be SAHM mothers but I dont think I'm one of those woman. I think I do a great job at being a student and a mom. & Im sure I will rock it when Im a teacher and a mom to my daughter.

 I have alot of goal for myself and my family and we want to accomplish them=) I know one day my daughter will thank me one day for getting her an awesome house, an education, a nice looking car and so many other things that Im sure she is going to want. & Im going to say "see if you get an education,you can have all these things."

 Right now though I think I get the best of both worlds I get to spend 5 hours in school and the rest of the time Im at home with my daughter:) would you call that a SAHM?lol

 If you are a SAHM I mean no disrespect, again, this is all Me, It my personality and how I view myself and my future:) I really wish I could be a SAHM,but because of the peson I am, I just cant.

Senior prom

No not mine!=) It was my sister Senior Prom this past Saturday, and she looked beautiful! I just wanted to share some photos with you on her special day:)

No, I have not, I would feel so weird,
Like if I was on display. I'm sure people would wonder why I would not eat with someone

Well to answer this truthfully I would have to know what both feels like and Ive only felt hurricane so I guess I would pick Hurricane,sometimes they are not that bad.

Quick post

I saw a post on getting to know your camera from Paper Heart Camera, and after reading I had the urge
to push all the button on my camera. For the most part  I think I know my dslr camera, but then again I feel like I find something new everytime I use it.

So I took a couple of pictures or random things and I got this really nice picture. I dont think I would call it Photography that just sounds so Label-ish(is that a word?).
I think it's just a nice picture:)

What would you do?

Do any of ya'll watch this show?

It is probably one of the best shows out there right now.
It comes out every Friday at 8 pm on ABC.

They are senarios that are put to the test.

My Teacher the other day told me a story about her and her husband had gone to the movies
and they were waiting in line at the concession stand and there
was this couple a boy and a girl,
The boy ends up hitting the girl in the face and
absolutely NOONE did anything to help her.
Everyone saw..but they did nothing to help the girl.

This wa actually one of the situation that was on the show too
and for some reason I cant stop thinking about my teachers story.

I dont know what I would do if I was watching this. I think If I was with Jaime
I would do something,but If I was alone I dont think I could step in.
I would be too afraid of the guy to hit me too.

It's a really good show.I recommend it=)

Im a slacker:(


This post was going to be for Monday but my Monday didnt come out the way I hoped it would so, this is two days late but here we go....
This Mothers day was very low key,I woke up at 3:30am to the sound  of my phone ringing 'Mud in the tires'-by Brad Paisley and I jumped out of my bed like I always do when I hear that song.

My sweet husband was on the other end,and
he said"whats today"
Me: umm sunday
Him:Its Mothers day!
Happy Mothers day baby!
Me:aww thanks babe

I woke up at 7am but I forced myself to go back to sleep till 9:30 and it was very sweet=)
My mother and I opened presents and she loved hers:)

I have a ton of pictures to show you all:)
Not just on Mothers day:)




My sister is going to Prom this weekend and I told her I would buy her the Jewelry that goes with her Dress
(I will post pictures of her and Matt later)
her dress is a neon green so we were looking everywhere in the mall,and still could not find anything.
Megan was really enjoying shopping with mommy.hahah I can just see my husband giving us a "ya'll need to stop shopping look"=)
He still lets us do it though


My mother had been wanting to paint her dinning room and on Saturday 
We finally went to lowes
to purchase some paint. My mother is CONSTATLY changing
 her mind about everything and this was no different. We discussed colors and she finally came a decision.


She

chose

this color......


Before I go any further my moms favorite color is purple, so I should not be surprised that this is what it was going to turn into=)
I love my mom.
She really enjoyed all her children painting her dinning room, it was a great Mother's day gift.I think=)

Megan made the craft and a Tutu made from Tiffany.
The Tutu was from her First Birthday and the craft is my first mothers day craft=)


Hubbster made this for Megan, I thought I should put
 it in a Frame since she LOVES It so much


Megan and I bought this for her grandma, I loved it,
 I bought it from Hobby Lobby=)


We made a crafts to my mom from Megan, we stayed up really late making that.



Last week was Teacher Appreciation week and I also got some things as well.
My mom is the sweetest.
 She says "In my eyes your already a teacher."

I am going to be for using this teaching/crafts ideas for my students




oh and I just saw yesterday on a Roster that Im a Sophmore, I dont know if
Ive already been a Sophmore but it's nice to
 actually know in writing that I am=)

That was most of my weekend, and I had a blast=)

Fill in the blank Friday

1. What I love most about my home is my family that live in it=)

2. I'm excited because, because I had a dream of my adorable husband!



3. My preferred method for blowing off steam when I'm frustrated is to shut myself in a room and take deep breaths.



4. Currently I am craving nothing....because Its Friday and I get to have some Soda and hot fries.

5. The thing I love most about my mom is she saved me from making the worst decision of my life, and for that I am truely thankful she pushed me and pushed and never gave up,and told me that I deserved better=)

6. If I was going to write a book about my life, the title would be "Enjoying the little things"

7. If I were to eat one thing for the rest of eternity it would be toast bread with "I cant believe its not butter" but the original one=)

Netflix on Ipod!!!

 Gris from A little piece of my world posted about a week ago about Netflix now streaming through Ipods!



Oh my god I love Netflix right about now.
My Doctors appoinment took two hours just for the "waiting to be called" part!
But this time I was going to watch Desperate Housewives on my Ipod  and I didnt even realize It was two hours that I was waiting there!

Oh my god, have I mentioned how much I love Technology!!!
Going to leave you with some photos from yesterday:)

Another Baby#2 discussion

Since my husband has given me some kind of hope of baby #2 all I can think of is all the things I want to do different.
(This is all assuming we have a boy)

Breastfeeding -The #1 question that I had  was how long the baby milk could be stored in the refrigerator? Next was....Why didnt anyone tell me what the color of the Breatmilk will be, I swear I thought It was going to be white. I know stupid huh?
This time around Im going to do alot more studing on the Breastfeeding stuff and Im going to be a Pro when we will start trying;)


Monthly Pictures- A couple of bloggy friends that I follow have had babies and they have monthly pictures with a sticker on their Onsies and I thought it was so cute!
Found here


Birth Pictures-I did not own a camera at the time of Megans birth, I know its horrible,but this time around Im going to have my mother or my sister take the pictures while Jaime is helping me Push. Im counting on them:)


Cloth Diapers or Disposable Diapers- This one is a huge debate on which way I should go this time around. Im still doing my research on both but Im still leaning more on disposable one, but I think having 3 or 4 diaper cloths would be helpful.But I still need alot of research on it.

Baby shower-I never had one single Baby shower when I was pregnant with Megan, but of course at the time I didnt want them,My Dear grandpa past away just 9 days shy of metting his first great granddaughter. I was not up to having a baby shower.

These are just some of the Lists of things I want to do different this time,I have alot of work/Reseach after that.

Miscellany Monday

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters


1. Duckies
We have had some visitors for the weekend:)
They were so cute and Megan really enjoyed having them around. They didnt let us touch them, when they got scared they would "quack quack".





2.Graduations
Megan and I went to a graduation dinner this past weekend and It was so pretty,I loved it.
I do have to point out that when I looked around all I thought about was "oh my god my baby girl is going to one day have one of these". Im so sad lately my baby girl just keeps growing and growing,Im very blessed that she is
 healthy and growing, but she's just doing it so fast.




I loved these candles in the center table.


3.Bowling
Megan and I went out to eat before we left for Bowling, I really dislike Whataburger,it's just
not the best best burger ever.Which is why I never eat burgers there.

\

Mommy and Megan:)
We had fun that night,we are going to do it again when daddy-o gets back:)
I lost this game though:(
O and we also met my sisters boyfriend he was really nice:)
He didnt talk much but I wanna say he was nervous being around us.lol


4.Harry Potter
AWESOME movie! I cant wait to see the second part!




5. Baby Gonzo
I Saw this at a store and I just had to have it!
Isnt it cute!


6. Miss Princess
Megan is now in the Princess phase and it's been one heck of a ride with that little Princess.
Let me tell you a little story,I bought megan a crown and this is what happened... I needed for Megan to get me something from another room and  she turns around and says "but I a princess!" I burst our laughing! Oh my little girl! Bless your heart. 


Oh and one last thing, this marks a historical event, and Ive never been prouder to say "I am an American":)
