Three months ago I came home from work to an unexpected surprise. Beautiful flowers that smelt like heaven in a pretty pink vase. Being as though he’s half a world away, this was his way of asking me to the Marine Corps ball as personally as he could given the fact that he’s in Afghanistan. I will forever be grateful for this man and everything he does to make me feel special. ❤

I’m so grateful that I get to call this man my husband.

iPhone 6 or iPhone 6+

Which phone should I get?
Having a hard time making a decision. What’s your opinion on these two?

You know what to do with that big fat butt.

Wiggle. Wiggle.

Thank the lawd I got nice VA reps on the phone this morning. Updating all of my forms, accounts, and everything under the sun is going to be a process. It helps when the help you are receiving is positive instead of getting help from someone who sounds like they hate their job. Yay for happy VA workers!

Currently updating my resumé while watching House, along with mapping out Jacob and I’s road-trip down to my parents in Florida next month. I’m excited to finally be able to plan ahead and get everything taken care of for school too.

By the time we get settled into our house and make it our own Jacob will be deploying and I will be starting school come January. So we are doing what we can to get all of our furniture and items from our parents into our home so that we can get settled as soon as we can. 

Yay for being productive.

Yesterday was a successful Saturday, then again this while week had been a great one. Not only did Jacob and I sign the lease to our new home, but we also picked out a new mattress to have delivered when we move in.

Then yesterday we went shopping for a washer and dryer set, ordered ourselves the iPhone 6+, went on a lunch date to Texas Roadhouse to satisfy Jacob’s craving and then made our way to the Jordan Soccer Complex to watch Gabi play. Gabi & her team got that W.

Now we are in route to New Bern for Makenzie’s soccer game. The jeep is packed with a ton if boxes to drop off in Jacksonville. Life is good. xo



you: that is a nice ass shirt

me: thank you but, to be honest, its called “pants” and not an “ass shirt”

I laughed for a good 5 minutes at this.

Aloha Friday.

Typical Friday, wake up and take care of what needs to be. Wait to hear from Jacob letting me know he’s off work and he will be making the drive to Fayetteville.

Today he was extra talkative. After about an hour long conversation my phone was about to die. I told him to drive safely, as he had an hour left to go as far as I knew.

About 10 minutes after we got off the phone I go into the kitchen to get some dinner and what do you know… Jacob comes walking through the front door. Yeah, I pretty much jumped on him. I looked like a little girl on Christmas. Ah, him and his damn surprises.

Have I mentioned that I love my husband? I am so in love with this man.

Happy Aloha Friday. xo

Perks of having little sisters.

I get into the shower after cleaning the downstairs this morning only to notice, mid-shampooing, that my conditioner is nowhere to be found. Once clean and clothed, I go upstairs and miraculously spot my missing conditioner in the girls bathroom.

Ah, little sisters.
