So how about this oil spill?

I've been out of the loop so I haven't been able to blog about this. So I want to know, what are your thought on this? Personally I'm quite pissed! It ruined Pensacola beach. I only lived there for a year but that still feels like my home and it breaks my heart to see globs of oil covering the entire beach. Not to mention all the damage it's doing to our sea life and just people in general. And they're not doing a damn thing to fix it. Oh wait no,.. they were going to try sticking things like golf balls and bits of tires down it. Seriously? And like, do you guys think it's a big conspiracy with Obama to make himself look better by fixing it? (Even though he's not?) I've also heard about them dropping a nuke, and stuffing it with hair, which I have to say does actually sound like it might work? To me. Idk. Hair soaks up oil is what I'm thinking. Recently I heard they were going to try and cut it off from a different spot or something but it's a long term plan. It could take months or years? I'm torn. I'm just so disappointed in our government. I mean, I know that's a touchy subject so I'm not even going to get into all that.

On a better topic... I made friends here so quickly. It's awesome. I knew I would make friends but with a deployment in our future I was a little nervous to be stuck here alone. Speaking of deployment, yea. Where did the time go? Honestly. The last 4 months just flew by!

Well anyway, I'm still not happy with my template. If you have any good websites for free cute templates please let me know! I can't find any I like, I tried making one myself and that just wasn't happening. Lol. So I'm on the hunt again!

I'M IN WASHINGTON!.. FINALLY!

So our move was successful and not as stressful as I thought! The road trip was amazing! The day we left we realized our GPS was taking us straight through PA and our home town right passed our parents houses! Lol. So we decided to stop and stay there our first night on the road. We just showed up and surprised everyone and it was just really nice. Then the next day we stopped in Indania to camp and almost got attacked by racoon's! One started coming after our dogs so my husband told us to get in the tent, and then it started going after him! Well this lasted for hours then finally game control came and turns out the raccoon was foaming at the mouth and they had to put it down. =( it was horrible. I felt to bad for the poor thing! What a way to start off our trip. Then some other raccoons tried stealing our cooler! Lol. The next night we camped in Iowa and it was a lot better than the night before! We stopped in this little town called Welcome. It was like something out of a movie. In the middle of town across from the only church, they had a horse water bowl for when you ride your horse into town! It was just so cute! And the camp site we stayed at was so much more down to earth and raccoons didn't try to eat us! Lol. The NEXT day we stopped in South Dakota and there was so much stuff to do there that we decided to stay for 3 days and site see. We saw Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse, and went through a drive through wild life park which was awesome! Lol.

Montana was by far the most beautiful state I've ever seen! Smallest towns I've ever seen to! Towns that didn't even have grocery stores and it was 75 miles before the first walmart and 45 miles before a gas station! And I thought I came from out in the sticks! Lol. Then we started getting into the mountains. Which was absolutely beautiful. Amazing. I can't even put it into words! We drove right through the heart of the rocky mountains where all you can see on both sides of you is rocks. It was unbeliebable. And the mountains with snow in the tops looked like they came straight out of a painting! Lol.

We had the time of our lives! And it was so nice with deployment coming up to spend that time with my husband! =)

I'll update more later, got to go unpack some more stuff in our new apartment!

Quick Post...

So yesterday we got boxes and bought the parts for our car. Today I packed everything I could and a million boxes later.. I need more boxes! Lol. So while I was doing that the Hubby was putting new breaks on, rotating the tires, and changing the oil in the car. Tomorrow we're getting the uhaul and doing all the last minute stuff and we're hitting the road early Tuesday morning! I'm so excited you have no idea!

Well I won't be able to post for a while since we'll be on the road all week. But you can follow my tweets if you would like, they're to the right on this page and down a tad! I'll update about WA asap! =)

Sorry this was so boring. Lol. I hope everyone has a great week!

Packing and other fun stuff!

So I got a TON of stuff packed in some left over boxes from the first move and I didn't completely unpack last time so some of it was already done! Lol. But I'm looking around and wondering where the hell did all this stuff come from?! Lol. We can't get the Navy to move us like we planned this entire time. I guess they need to know 3 weeks ahead of time which I don't understand because they didn't even tell us we were moving until 4 days before! So we're stuck getting a Uhaul and hauling it all across the country ourselves. Luckily we get reimbursed because honestly, who can afford to move 45 hrs away with only a 4 day notice? Not us that's for sure! We have to get a hitch installed on our car so we can pull a trailer. That won't be done until Monday because they have to special order some parts. We have to get our breaks fixed because they're horrible right now and not only are we traveling across the country, but we'll be lugging a trailer which adds pressure to the breaks on hills. Oh and an oil change is much needed!



One good thing,.. we have to get rid of our couch set because we won't be able to fit everything. So I'm giving them away for free to a needy family. Least I can do. I'm blessed with everything I need but some people aren't so fortunate. That's what we did with our last set when we lived in Pensacola too. A family whose house burned down came and took them. They had to start over completely from scratch so they appreciated that living room set way more than I ever did.

Ahh. Somewhere between all this we have to pack, load the uhaul and run around tying loose ends,.. I don't know where I'm going to get the time for all this! Lol. Oh the life of a Navy Wife! Got to love it! =)



OH! And we found an apartment! A temp apartment. My friend lives there and it's really nice! I'm super excited about it. But we're going to rent a house when my Husband get's back from his first deployment for the duration of our time in Washington. =)

So ok this is turning into a novel and I really need to take the puppies for a walk and get back to work on the apartment! By the way we hit the road on Tuesday! Eeps!



Thursday, June 3, 2010

So we knew we would be moving to Washington state soon or at the very latest August. But we weren't given an exact date,.. until today! My Husband just randomly texts me and was like "We leave Monday." Lol. I was so excited I think I squealed a little. Haha. I can't wait to get there!!! I don't know all the details yet. I'm just waiting on my Husband to fill me in! eeps! I can't wait to hit some hiking trails!



So a little off topic... I can't believe I have 13 followers you guys! That's nothing compared to some people, but I honestly didn't think I would even have 5 followers! Lol. So I'm pretty excited about that! I'm shooting for 20+. I love knowing people actually read my posts! =)

Thanks for following me!!! <3

Memorial Day


A whole group of people who shall remain nameless are getting a little ahead of themselves and keep posting on facebook about how fun Labor Day weekend was. Well, I'm glad they had fun and all, and maybe it's just the military wife in me, but are people really that ignorant? HELLO it was Memorial Day dumbasses! I bet they never even thought for a second about all the people who lost their lives for our freedom. Instead they partied it up and celebrated the beginning of summer with a holiday that actually symbolizes the end of summer. Way to go. Someone's son/daughter, mother/father, brother/sister died so you can go out and party because freedom isn't free. This actually really gets under my skin.

Honestly, how do you feel about this? Let me know!

So I just want to say Thank You to all the men and women who have served and who are currently serving our country! Some people don't believe in it or appreciate it, but I do. And I know I'll sleep peacefully tonight knowing the U.S. Military is fighting for my safety and my freedom!

Well, I hope everyone had a wonderful Memorial Day! <3
