One Month Down

Today is the first day of fall.  I’m so excited to see those beautiful trees change their colors and for some chilly weather.

I can’t believe a month has already passed since my hubs went to Fort Huachuca, Arizona.  It has not been easy as I thought it would be.  Not only do I miss him but all the not so good things that have happened to me in this month.  For instance:
  1. My tire from my Highlander had a nail on it.
  2. I have to guys living upstairs from me and I stomp like horses after midnight, litter down the balcony and urine down to my balcony.  (Where is the maturity???)(And yes I went to complain)
  3. We pay for reserved parking and every time I get home there is someone on my parking spot.
  4. And to top it off they cut my gas because apparently they never changed it to my name.  So now I have to wait 2-3 days.

 I really have to laugh now because what else can I do right!!! Despite the fact of all these negative details I really have to give a special thank you to my dearest friend Jules. Military life is not easy; you meet people that you know eventually you might not even see again because we move so many times.  But I am truly grateful because I have met a special woman. This lady has seen me at my worst for the past 2 years.  We moved to Fort Bragg on the same month, same year.  And we started working together and been friends ever since.  She helped me lose weight, she has listened to every stupidity I might say lol, she’s cried with me during my infertility treatments and til this day she always offers herself for any situation I may have.  I thought I would never make friends here but God has truly blessed me with her.

My sexy blondie

A Letter To My Husband On Our Second Anniversary

My dearest J

Unfortunately we will not be able to share our second anniversary or exchange any kind of gifts due to long distance, so I have chosen to write you a post since I know you are my #1 reader. 

Two years ago today, on a hot yet beautiful day, we drove all the way to the courthouse in jeans and a t-shirt looking for information little did we know that a couple of minutes later we were saying I DO.  We promised to spend the rest of our lives together, to love each other during good and bad times. 

And today September 7th, 2014, two years later I can say that I will always keep this promise.  Please forgive me for the times when I would not be patient; forgive me for the constant nagging,  forgive me for the times I haven’t been kind, when my tongue has been quicker and sharper than my head and my heart, forgive me when I forget to be humble.  And finally, forgive me for the times I did not trust you, and the times I look to the future with worry instead of hope and faith. 

Thank you for keeping me stabled, for helping me understand the beauty of love.  Thank you for being on this journey with me, thank you for loving me and respecting me and my family.  Thank you for protecting me from those who tried to break us down.
Two years ago I made the best decision of my live without any hesitation in my mind.  I knew God put you in my life for a reason.  Today I get to say that I am the happiest woman in the world and I do not regret becoming Mrs. M.  Our marriage is an adventure, so thank you M, thank you for giving me glimpses of the Lord’s love for me, thank you for loving Knela, thank you for loving me and thank you for just being you. 

If I had to do this all over again I would certainly do it a million times of course with you.  And I pray that God protects you always and may He be with you during your classes; in the end I k now you will graduate AIT and I know you will be so happy.  I love you my dear husband and future daddy of our miracle soon to come baby. 

Always and forever yours!!!

Meet At The Barre
Linking up with Amanda again...

Favorite Moment

The fact that I will start to work again at Express gets me all excited.  I'll be busy with two jobs I won't have to think about missing my hubs.  And spending time with my crazy BFF this last week was just what I needed.  

Favorite Movie

For some reason I've been literally hooked on Pitch Perfect, I know all the songs, the routines you name it.  I can see the movie everyday as many times as they give it on T.V. and I still don't get tired of it.

 Hubs favorite part lol

This is just so me

Favorite Purchase

I need some nice jeans, sweaters and a coat for this fall/winter and just with the fact that I'm getting some discount (50%) out of my first purchase in Express I might have to make some damage this weekend on my credit card.

When I get to the store...

 When I leave the store

Favorite Weekend

This Sunday is my Second Year Anniversary.  I can't believe it; and although we will be apart I'm more than happy to know that I married the most amazing, humble man I have ever known.

Our kisses until we reunite in January

 I'm such a nagger lol but it's true I miss him so much.

Favorite Funnies

Me this morning when I had to get up at 5:00 am to take Qimmy to the airport.

And this was my face when I got to work late and people just started asking for papers lol

Have a blessed and fun weekend.

Long Weekend Recap

Happy Monday and Happy Labor Day everyone!  I'm so glad I’m actually off today; I'll be honest, this was an exhausting weekend.    

Friday I drove for the first time by myself to Raleigh to pick up my bestie Qimmy.  

Friday night we went to dinner to dinner at Olive Garden, later we went home and started the girl talk if you know what I mean talking about the past adventures we had together when roommates.  

On Saturday morning we went shopping  and then in the evening we had a girls night out. We started off at my friends house playing beer pon and then drove to Huske (a bar here in Fayetteville).  Unfortunately we had to leave the bar early because being 4 girls alone; men started getting all crazy and disrespectful so we decided to end the night and go home.  

On Sunday we woke up super late so we had brunch and went to get mani/pedi.  That evening my friend invited us to her house and we had a bbq and around 11:00 pm we went to the yard and had some S'mores.  

After a couple of Baily's on the rock and  S'mores we woke this morning so late we decided to have breakfast at iHop and then went to Smith Lake just to sight see but it was so hot we called it off; so instead we decided to rest the whole day and get ready for tomorrow since I have to work. 

Hope everyone has a fabulous week.
