ROAD TRIP!



So today we're leaving for PA! I'm super excited I loove road trips! But we just got Taco a few weeks ago and he hasn't been in the car for more than an hr. So this should be interesting. Lol.


My Husband's grandmother is home now. Thank goodness. No more news about the cancer. But we made homemade chicken soup last night to take to her tomorrow. =)

Umm, what else? I'm coloring my hair today! I'm going lighter, but not by much. It's a light golden brown. Right now it's a medium brown but I have natural red highlights. It's a curse. So it looks auburn in the sun. Time for a change!... Even though my highlights will show through in about a week or so. Lol.

Hmmm,.. well I'm being boring so I'll cut this short!
Pray we have a save trip! =)

Why do bad things happen to good people?

Yesterday my husband woke up to a phone call from his Mother with horrible news. They just found out his grandmother has lung cancer. Possibly in both lungs. Cancer is always bad, but what makes this even worse is she was a breast cancer survivor not too long ago. She just started growing all her hair back from chemo. And now she has to go through it all over again. It's so sad. My husband's grandfather (her husband) is also a survivor of skin cancer and depends on her for everyday tasks. If something were to happen to her who know what will happen to him. And my husband is taking it pretty hard.

I know what he's going through, my Father passed away in '08 and just a few months later my Nonni, my Father's Mother passed after holding on by a string the last few years.

I'm just glad that since we're going home this weekend, he can spend some time with her and if anything were to happen he wouldn't have 'I should have been there' hanging over his head. He's lucky, because when my Nonni passed away we lived in FL and I wasn't able to fly home for her funeral and I hadn't seen her for months before that. So he may have a gift and I'm grateful for that.

But we're going to stay on the positive side of things! His grandmother kicked breast cancer like a pro so we're hopeful. =)

Please say a prayer for Shirley Cain. <3

I Love Nice People!


Seriously. Lol. I was thinking... it's so nice when you meet a nice person! For instance, when I was moving to FL I was moving straight out my parent's home and I had to get on 3 different planes alone. I had never flown before and even though I was excited to see my husband, I was terrified of the trip there! But luckily on the first plane from PA to TN, the man sitting beside me was an older gentlemen and he went out of his way to make my first plane trip a good one, explaining the different things I'll see in FL and keeping my mind off flying. He even offered me half of his very tiny breakfast. Lol. It was sweet. Then at the airport in TN I met this older lady and her grandson. She watched my things while I got my ticket for the next plane printed out and her grandson played with Bruiser which was the nicest part because he was couped up in a dog carrier he clearly out grew of. Poor thing! And on the next plane the woman next to me stuck up for me when a flight attendant who must have woke up on the wrong side of the bed was complaining about me taking Bruiser on the plane when I paid extra to be able to do so. Then she helped me keep him calm. =)

Another quick story,.. When my husband and I were moving from FL to here, we made it as far as GA and we blew a tire. Which normally isn't so bad except since we were moving we had the trunk over stuffed and we had to unpack it on the side of a very busy highway to get the spare out. Well this super nice cop seen us and stopped. He not only helped my husband change the tire AND pack the car back up, he also took our old tire and escorted us to the nearest tire place. We thought he had already done more than he had to and then he talked people who worked there and told them how we were moving and still have a few hrs of driving ahead of us and the took us right away. The whole thing took about 20 minutes. He didn't have to even stop. Let alone help us out the way he did!

Or how about the other day we were waiting in line with only a few items and the lady in front of us let us go ahead of her. Not exactly rare. But when we went to thank her, she said "Just pay it forward!" I loved that! Lol. One little thing like that can brighten up your whole day. =)

I'm going hoome! =)

We're going home for Memorial Day weekend and I'm super excited! It's nice living so close to home. We're originally from Pennsylvania so in Virginia we're only about 7 hrs away! So we try to go home as much as we can since we'll be moving clear across the country soon.

Home Sweet Home!


Actually I lived about an hr outside of the city in a small country town you've never heard of! Yep, that's right,.. Who's a country girl? This girl right here! =) Lol. I miss it there a lot! I mainly just miss the familiar- Knowing everyone's cars, all your neighbors, all the roads, the stores... etc. It's crazy starting from scratch so many times! We're only a year into my husband's contract and have already moved twice and will be moving again next month! Lol.

How many times have you had to move for the military? =)

Intro...

Where to start? I love my life has a Navy wife! My husband and I have been married for 1 year and together for over 5! I'm 20 and he's 21. Yes, we're young. But that's not exactly odd in the military world. Lol. He has been in the navy for a little over a year now and is an E-3 ATI. So far during our military life, we've lived in Pensacola, FL, recently made the move to Virginia Beach, Virginia and soon we'll be moving to our perm duty station in Washington state where we'll be for the duration of my husband's time in the Navy! For this contract anyway.

I did have to put my educational career on hold for a little while because of the Navy, but in fall 2011 I fully intend to go to school for cosmetology and work toward my lifetime goal of one day owning my own hair salon/spa! It might not be everyone's idea of a lifetime goal but it's mine and it's what I've wanted to do my entire life. So I'm really excited to finally get started on it! =)

Well, I don't know what else to say... so I'll post another time! Lol.
