Happy birthday to the worlds greatest husband, father and friend!!
We love you baby!!
I come from a very patriotic family. We are proud to be Americans. We bleed Navy blue and gold.
I was raised a Navy Brat, knowing my Dad was serving our Country made
My heart swell with pride. Im still proud of all he has done for our country.
And my Husband is in the Navy. He is truly a hard worker and such a patriotic man. Ive never known anyone who is more proud to be an American.
I can remember last year crying with pride on the Fourth of July because my husband was in Iraq serving and sacraficing for our great country. A task he volunteered for! I couldnt imagine being more proud of him.
This year, I sit and listen to the fireworks, eat a little BBQ and miss my Hubby desperately and I am reminded of the families and friends who support our troops. The ones that are there with letters, emails, prayers and love keeping our men and women in uniform going. I think of my fellow military wives and I realize how proud I am to be part of those ranks.
So today I salute all the sailors, soldiers, airmen and marines who are supporting, serving and sacraficing for our country. And I send love and prayers to all the wives, husbands, parents, children and friends of the troops who are right there standing beside our men and women in uniform keeping them going.
Please take a minute to remember that we are the home of the free BECAUSE of the brave!
Happy Independence day!
And I know he loves me, but I think that in this picture he is clearly telling me to stop clicking pictures of him.
It seems to be the standard operating procedure that when he is home, I shoot WAAAAAAY too many pictures of him. And I know it starts to make him crazy, but gosh he’s cute!!
Happy Father’s Day Honey! (Its a day ahead where he is) Thank you for being such an awesome Daddy to your boys!
I love you!
After thinking it over for months the Hubby and I decided that it was time for him to go back to El Salvador to visit his family. I really wanted to go along but since school isnt over yet I couldnt go.
With the big move just a few days away for him and only a few months away for me, we thought it would be a good idea for him to visit before we leave to NewHome.
Im so excited to report that he was able to call me today and was able to surprise his Abuelita! And since his cousins birthday is in just a few days, he will be there for that too.
Sometimes its hard to be selfless and give him five of our 15 days to go out of the country and visit without me. Especially knowing that I wont be seeing much of him starting next month. But…I am so happy that he got to go. He was just so excited!
What is the most selfless thing you have done for you spouse or significant other?
Today marks one glorious year of marriage to the most amazing man in the universe.
Its obvious to most that we decided to get married on Valentines day. And we get asked by many people why we chose that day, so here is my reasoning…. Both my husband and I feel that love should be expressed every day and so should appreciation so neither of us have a particular use for Valentines day. And We wanted a day that was memorable, so we chose Valentines.
Other benefits to being married on this day are that there are tons of sales on Jewelry and flowers and men are bombarded by sales ads reminding them to buy their sweethearts THINGS. For women its a little harder since for
Some reason Valentines is all about buying women gifts.
We spent our anniversary very
Low key. The night before we attempted to enjoy a luxurious restaurant with great reviews. I say attempted because I was unable to enjoy much since BB was not in the mood for food. Today we spent the day exploring Legoland and did some shopping for maternity clothes and then saw the movie Its Valentines Day. Great movie! Oh and we had an amazing lunch at Maggiano’s!
The best part of the day was having my Hubby all to myself and getting to have some great laughs!
Happy anniversary my love! Here’s to another 50 of newlywed bliss!!
How far along? 8 weeks (according to the most recent ultrasound)
Total weight gain/loss: +0.5, -2.0lbs so far
Maternity clothes?: Again back to the old pants and they are just getting roomier. But I just cant sleep without a bra to contain the huge girls!
Stretch marks? None from the baby
Sleep: Currently sleeping as much as I can. I really can sleep anywhere now and I can sleep anytime. In fact about an hour after I wake up I am ready for a nap.
Best moment this week: Seeing the baby again and hearing the heartbeat on the ultrasound! It was the best noise I have ever heard in my entire life!
Movement: Cramping still off and on throughout the day.
Food cravings/aversions: This changes daily. Earlier this week I wanted steak, now meat makes me nauseas. This changes from moment to moment. Funny craving of the week is saltines with peanut butter!
Belly Button in or out?: In for a long time!
Movement?: Nothing yet. Although there are times when the uterine cramping makes me think I feel something, but it is WAAAY to early to feel the baby move!
What I miss: My husband. This week I have been very emotional and I just wish that he was here to hug. Only another week and then we can see each other.
What I am looking forward to: My NT scan in a month. I cant wait!
Weekly Wisdom: There is nothing wrong with freaking out a little! Just remember to take a deep breath.
Milestones: Hearing the heartbeat!
Symptoms: Exhaustion and moody. Ive had a bit of a short temper this week and have been quick to get frustrated. And nauseas ALOT!!
Week 8 here we come! Grow baby Grow!
Im so excited! In just a couple weeks the Hubby and I will be celebrating our First Wedding Anniversary!
Some days it feels like we have been married for 10 years, especially when you think of everything we’ve done and been through. Other dayd I cant believe its already been a year.
Ive been told that the first year is the hardest, so if that was that hard part then I cant wait to see what the easy stuff is.
Our first year of marriage survived Iraq, family deaths, orders that kept us apart, traveling abroad, and a second set of orders keeping us on separate side of the US. Not to mention Nursing school.
Nursing school alone makes marriage more difficult. The time constraints that studying, clinicals and lecture cause dont leave very much time for romance or being spontaneous. But we manage.
And now here we are, almost a year in and I have to say that I am even more in love with him than I ever.
What did you do for your first anniversary?
My amazing hubby surprised me with this beauty as a back to school gift!
Im becoming a huge Coach bag fan!
Typically I dont write resolutions but this year I feel there is one in particular that I have a burning desire to achieve.
This year my resolution is to become a better wife to my husband, to learn new ways to love him, and to pick my battles more carefully.
2009 was an amazing year for us as both friends and as a couple. We had some trying times bit mostly we laughed and loved the year away.
2009 was awesome but my resolution is to make 2010 even better!
I wish I had taken a picture of how full we managed to get our little car, we are packed all the way to the brim! I dont think that my MIL (Mother-in-law) could have sent us with any more wonderful stuff! We have a cooler full of curtido, pupusas, and cola champagne. Its fabulous!
Now its time to start the long drive home. The very long drive home.
Im not ready to say goodbye, evidenced by the fact that it is almost 3pm and we still havent started driving. Pray for good weather for us please!
After spending 11 days at sea and loving the waves rolling back and forth, I am having some difficulty re-integrating into the regular land.
The Hubby swears that I will get my land legs back soon, I cant wait!
The cruise was so much fun, and if it werent for the BIG MOVE coming up then we would have booked another one. I strongly suggest a cruise, strongly!
This was on the beach at Cabo San Lucas….I miss it already!
Cooking is going, lunch is ready. Waiting on some cousins to show up to eat the lunch meal.
I made lunch!! Scalloped potatoes and pork chops, with shrimp pasta and bread!
Some people needed a nap before lunch…hehehehe
This morning I woke up and asked my loving hubby what he was thankful for….
His response ‘Seafood”, then he apparently saw the look on my face and said “But mostly I am thankful for you baby!! I love you more than seafood!”
What a suck up, and I think someone is trying to hint that I need to make some seafood for dinner!
Last night we had a wonderful dinner of homemade shrimp alfredo and dill salmon. The salmon was caught by out amazing Tio T. And it was MmmMmmMmm Delicioso!
Tonight we are heading out to go see the new Twilight movie. The Hubby is being super supportive of my vampire addiction!
What new movies have you seen?
30 Years ago, this amazing couple came together and welcomed my Husband into the world.
And their family was beautiful.
From Birthdays celebrated with bumps and bruises….
To those birthdays celebrated surrounded by friends,
Its that time of year again my love, Happy 15 times 2 Birthday!

It was noticed by some that I failed to post about 9/11. This was done intentionally. Not because I am not remembering, not because I have forgotten. I did not post about it because of the amount of emotions that it brings up.
My Husband is in the Middle East, in the desert, because of the aftermath of September 11th. I remember that day, every single day. I think about the life changing events of that day every time I pray, every time I hear from my hubby, everytime I think about him.
Trust me, I have not forgotten.
Time to step back into the life of a Navy wife. He deployed again. Im trying to be strong and supportive but on the first day after he leaves all I want to do is be sad.
I turned 25 on Friday, and I got the best present ever…..
It never ceases to amaze me at how wonderful my husband is. I mentioned in a long and whining post about my miserable moment from the other day, well I of course told him about it. And what did he say….
“Ive got your back, I love you, Im in this with you”
Isnt that the sweetest thing? I cried. And then I stopped and thanked God for my wonderful Hubby, and then I cried again.
Gosh I miss him so much……how much longer until its December?
Always in my heart…and my purse!!
