Thank you so much Lacey! I was so excited to see that I had got this :)

Friday Fill-In

1. What is ONE thing you’d like civilians to understand about being a military family?

Seeing as I'm still considered a civilian and not an Army wife there are still things I'm learning about. I'm not really sure what to say for this one.

2. What is your favorite mistake?

My favorite mistake might sound a bit odd to you guys. It would most definitely have to be thinking I was in love with my ex boyfriend. It took me disobeying my parents, moving in with him, paying for every.single.thing., him cheating on me not once but 3 times for me to realize that I was fool and I wasn't really in love. I liked the idea of settling down with someone. I liked the idea of getting married and starting a family. Him ruining 4 years of my life made my current relationship all the more better. I knew what mistakes I had made before and I wasn't going to do that again. The mistake of being with him made me know I am absolutely head over heels for Jon.

3. What indulgence could you give up for a year?

Coke (or pop for you yanks), tea, or any caffinated beverage. I haven't drank any kind coke for over a year. Actually I take that back. I have had a sip or three in a whole year but not a whole one. I have no desire for it. As for tea, that's my weakness. Sweet ice tea. Guess what? We haven't drank that in over a month. It's only water for me. Oh and milk too.

4. If you could be a winged animal, what would you be?

I would be a hummingbird. They are so gorgeous and graceful.
5. What is one question you’d like to see asked in a future MFF?

I have no idea. What kind of advice could you give a newbie like me?

Look What I Got!

Flip Flops and Combat Boots was doing a giveaway from and guess who won?!!


You guys don't understand how excited I am! I never, and I mean never, win anything. I was so excited to wake up, check my email and see that I had won something. Oh, I'm just now bloggin about this but I received the exciting news on Saturday. I was so busy with something all weekend, that I'll tell you about in a minute, that I'm just now talking about it. So you're probably wondering what I won, right?

This! Sorry it's kind of blurry.
I was able to choose from a couple of different charms. With Jon being in the Army, you can probably understand why I chose this one. Nicole sent me an email saying they would ship it out today so I can't wait to get that in! I love getting mail. I get a wee bit excited when I get a package or something in the mail, even if it is just a catalog. Weird, right?

Moving on to another topic.

Jon and I had been planning on getting married in October at the court house. Then we were going to have our "real" wedding next year. Well I get a call from my wonderful Step-Mom saying my Aunt D and Uncle C would love to host their house as the wedding/reception site. My Aunt D said she would love for us to go ahead and have the actual wedding instead of waiting. So we're getting married in October! October 9th to be exact. How crazy is that?! We went over to their house which is a good hour and a half drive to go over ever.single.detail. Our heads were spinning by the time we left. So needless to say, my weeks are going to full of wedding planning on top of my job and classes. I'm so excited though! My Dad wants to buy my wedding dress. I'm going with my Mom first to try on dress and I'm going to narrow it down to my top three picks. Then my Dad and I are going to have a father-daughter day and do lunch and he's going to go with me to see the top three picks.

 I'm so blessed to have the family I do. Everyone is pitching in to help with wedding costs and it awesome how excited everyone is. I'm a little stressed already, but what bride isn't when planning a wedding?
