Friday Fill-In

I'm finally jumping on the bandwagon and filling out the MilSpouse fill-in. If you're a MilSpouse, go on over to Wife of a Sailor's blog and participate.

1. What is your spouse's best feature?

I love his eyes! They are a gorgeous bluish green color. I love gazing into them....*sigh*. 

Okay, moving on now. I'll stop being a sap.
Oh, and he has amazing lips. They're just so full, lol. They're great for kissing.
2. Mild, Medium or Hot sauce?

Hot! I love love love hot stuff. I once at a habanero salsa and boy was that sucker spicy. I still ate it though.

3. What is the worst uniform you had to wear for a job?

Probably when I worked at Walmart. We had to wear Khakis and they always got dirty. Other than that I've never had a bad uniform that I have had to wear.
4. You have invisible powers… where is the first place you would go?

I honestly have no idea. I geuss to the beach. So no one has to see my pasty self.
5. What’s left on your “to do” list for this summer?

Absolutely nothing. Just to relax and get ready for this new job that starts on the same day as my classes. When those start, I'll be super busy.

Bear with me today

Okay, is it bare or bear with me? Stupid question, I know.

I'm going to go ahead and finish up the 30 Days of Me today. I should have already been done with this over a month ago.

Day 18: Whatever tickles your fancy

I got a job! Get this though. It's a nanny position where I will be working 9 hours a day 5 days a week. I will be primarily taking care of the couple's 18 month old son.
Oh, on top of that I'll be taking 6 online classes. You heard that right, 6 online classes. Maybe my mom is right.

Day 19: A talent of yours

I have no talent. None. I can't sing, draw, paint, etc. I have really been wanting to get into photography. I love taking pictures but my camera is crappy to take the  kind of pictures I want to take. Maybe one day that will be my talent. Who knows?

I was just informed by Jon that my talent is cooking. I don't think so but he begs to differ. I've really been on a healthy kick lately and have been  cooking some great things.

Day 20: A hobby of yours

I would have to say reading is my hobby. I'm in love with reading. It was so bad when I was younger that my parents would take away my books when I was grounded, along with everything else. If they wouldn't have I could have sat in my room for hours just reading.

Day 21: A recipe

I've been finding some amazing recipes from Cooking Light.


1 tablespoon canola oil
1/2 cup chopped green onions (about 4)
1 garlic clove, minced I just bought a jar of minced garlic
1 cup sliced fresh okra (about 4 ounces)
1 cup chopped red bell pepper (about 1)
1 finely chopped seeded jalapeño pepper
1 cup fresh corn kernels (about 2 ears)
1 (15-ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
1/3 cup minced fresh cilantro
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onions and garlic; sauté 1 minute. Add okra; sauté 3 minutes. Reduce heat to medium. Add bell pepper and jalapeño; cook 5 minutes. Add corn; cook 5 minutes. Stir in beans; cook 2 minutes. Stir in cilantro; sprinkle with salt and black pepper.

I paired this reciped with broiled salmon. It was awesome! It also makes for left over lunch the next day.

Day 22: A website

You must check this website out! It has the cutest clothes. Pink Ice

I want this

This also

Ooo, and these!

Day 23: A YouTube video

I love this girls videos on youtube! She has great makeup tutorials.

Isn't she gorgeous?!

Day 24: Whatever tickles your fancy

I'm going to skip this one.

Day 25: Your day, in great detail

I cleaned. Oh, and watched two shows I DVRed last night. Needless to say, I was lazy today.

Day 26: Your week, in great detail,
Day 27: This month, in great detail,
Day 28: This year, in great detail

I grouped these three together because it was going to get repetitive. My life so far this year has been really uneventful. The only thing worth mentioning is my engagement! I've already talked about that though so I won't go into detail.

Day 29: Hopes, dreams and plans for the next 365 days
 I want to marry the man of my dreams, finish up my associates next May, figure out where we'll be when Jon reclasses and if we end up staying at Fort Hood, buy a house.

Day 30: Whatever tickles your fancy

Again, I'm skipping this one.

I'm doneeee!

I've failed miserably...

at the 30 Days of Me. Sorry guys! I just haven't been in the mood to write lately. I'm going to go ahead an continue it though.

Day 13: A fictional book

L.A. Candy by Lauren Conrad

I just read this book recently and I loved it! It's so full of Drama! I'm a huge fan of Lauren Conrad and I don't know why I hadn't read this sooner. I'll be reading her next book, Sweet Little Lies.

Day 14: A non-fictional book

I haven't read a non-fiction book in a while. I don't even remember the name of the last non-fiction book I read. Oh well.

Day 15: A fanfic

I feel dumb for even asking this. What is a fanfic? Does anyone know?

Day 16: A song that makes you cry (or nearly)

This song makes me cry all.the.time.

Day 17: An art piece (painting, drawing, sculpture, etc.)

I'm really not a huge art person. I don't currently have any favorite paintings, drawings or sculptures that I like.

Today's blog was pretty boring but I thought I should continue with the 30 Days of Me and get it finished.

It's official!

  I finally have time to sit down and write. We have been going non-stop since Friday! I'm just going to give you a play-by-play on what my weekend entailed.

  We got up and took Thumper, our rabbit, to the vet. She had the sniffles and we wanted to get that looked at. We then needed groceries really bad so that took almost 2 hours in itself. Afterwards we loaded up the car and drove down to my mom's house (which is only an hour away). My Nana and Papa cooked us a wonderful dinner of beef steak drowned in brown gravy with mashed potatoes and squash. Jon and I stayed up way past our bed time playing board games with my two younger cousins.

  My 20th Birthday!!! We had some errands to run so we got ready and headed into town. We stopped at Wal-Mart to get Jon's front two tires balanced and they told us it was going to be and hour and a half wait to we reluctantly walked around Wal-Mart waiting for his car to get done. We happened to be in the area (where they fix the cars) about and hour later. The guy comes up and says, "Oh! Glad you guys stopped by. Your car has been ready for a while now. We can't balance your tires because the tread is too low." I was really annoyed they didn't call us over the intercom or something like that.
  After all that we headed towards the mall because I wanted to stop into Aerie. Aerie is my favorite ever! I'm not obsessed. So I grabbed some unmentionables and a super cute pair of sunglasses that were originally $20 and on sale for $5! By then we were starving! There's a sushi place inside the mall so we stopped and got some spicy tuna rolls. They were the best that I have ever had!! They were delicious!
  After we were done at the mall we headed back to my Uncles (He was out of town and lives right around the corner. My nana and papar were staying there and we stayed in the spare bedroom) We relaxed until it was time to go over to my Mom's house for my birthday dinner. My Mom cooked fried chicken, okra salad and mashed potatoes with my Nana's brown gravy. I died and went to heaven! She made me the best dinner I had in a while!
  So after dinner we all sat at the table with my cake and front of me. As they finished singing, I looked to my right and Jon was down on one knee. He asked me to marry him!! So it is now OFFICIAL!!! I now have a ring to show it! I was so happy he chose to do it in front of my family. It ment the world to me. My cheeks were hurting so much from the hug smile I had. He couldn't have picked a more perfect ring. It's so unique!

Ignore my fat fingers and chipped nail polish!

  After dinner my Nana and Papa went back to my uncle's to watch Nascar. Jon and I stayed back with my sister, Mom and step-dad (Darell.) We stayed up for a while and played the wii. We had a blast!

  My mom gave me a gift certificate to Charming Charlie's and since we don't have one in Killeen I wanted to go ahead and go into town and use the gift certificate. I picked out two pairs of dangly ears and a pair of diamond studs. Oh, and I also bought a makeup bag. My makeup started to overflow out of my old one.
  After we did that we went back to Fort Hood and went to Freedom Fest for a couple of hours. We were going to stay to watch Seether play and then to see the fireworks but we were so hot, sweaty and bored. We decided to go see Toy Story 3 in 3D. It was a good movie but kind of a waste of $24. We should have waited for it to come out on dvd. I did cry at the end though. It was just too sad not to cry.

Monday (today)-
  Needless to say, today has been a very lazy day for us. We woke up at like 10am (which I NEVER sleep in that late. Sleeping in late for me is 8am.) I made breakfast and we have just been lounging around the house.
  I got some disappointing news today which kind of put me in a yucky mood. I had interviewed for a nanny position a week agao that was going to pay a generous amount. I thought I had the job in the bag. Turns out I didn't. She emailed me back saying that they had decided to go with someone else. I am so bummed about it :( I'm moving on about it though.

Well that was our weekend and I am still so over the moon about Jon proposing! We have decided to do a quick wedding with the JOP in October and then Next summer will be the big shebang so we can have time to save. We want to be able to do anything with our wedding and that takes lots of money.

I hope you guys all had a fantastic Fourth of July!
