Back on track!

Today I’m getting back on top of things! I’m completely moved in, everything is unpacked and put away…I can breathe again! So today mom leaves, we’re going to run a few errands and take her to the airport and then its home to RUN! AHH I haven’t run in like 2 weeks! I can’t wait! … Continue reading

I made it!

Its been quite a while since my last post but it has been a busy week or so! I’m finally all moved in to our new apartment….phew! Exhausting isn’t the word. Our move across the country in 4 days was easier than moving down the street! When we moved all the way across the country … Continue reading

I prefer the week to weekend now.

I know it doesn’t make sense. But I absolutely do. I got so used to having the weekends with John that I truly don’t enjoy them as much when he’s not here. Not to mention, I really don’t have anyone to go out with on the weekends anyway. It has been so damn difficult for … Continue reading

Smitten Kitchen Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake

I found this food blog which I LOVE! and I found this recipe which I can’t wait to try when my mom gets here. This cake is INTENSE. Serve it in the thinnest slices possible, and keep a glass of milk handy. Makes an 8-inch triple-layer cake; serves 12 to 16 (the book says, I … Continue reading


Have you ever had that moment when you’re suddenly  just hit with how blessed you are? I have been feeling that way for a couple of days now and it feels like I’m on cloud nine. I am so amazed at how we’re kind of brought down right before things get better and I can’t … Continue reading

I found out that the cost of the monthly rent has been lowered $200 from what it was originally making it EXTREMELY affordable! And the apartment they have available is so cute! Dark wood cabinets, the living … Continue reading

Decisions decisions.

What an awesome weekend 🙂 My friend’s parents were in town and I joined them on a winery hopping tour all day Saturday in Temecula, CA. We had a blast and drank A LOT of wine! Afterwards they took us out for a great dinner and I went home and collapsed! Then Sunday we spend … Continue reading

9/11 It seems we have forgotten.

I remember exactly where I was sitting at 9AM 9/11/01. I was in my sophomore year biology class. For those of you who do not know I have the WORST memory of all time, but I vividly remember those moments and that day. And I can’t believe its been 8 years. I also can’t believe … Continue reading

Patience, patience, patience…

Those of you who know me or are getting to know me I’m sure are aware that patience is not my strong point. I’m trying,  I really am,  but all of this uncertainty is really taking a toll on me. I literally feel like I am on a rollercoaster, and I don’t like it. Yesterday … Continue reading

Into week three

So we’re into week three of the deployment. And I am really starting to miss John like crazy. Fortunately he finally got his internet hooked up in his room and we’ve been skyping every day! (Although, he doesn’t have a camera yet so he can hear and see me and I can only hear him, … Continue reading
