Facebook stalkers

Sometimes I just blank. I sit in front of the screen and go completely empty. And I thought tonight was going to be one if those nights. Til I got on facebook. We're all guilty of it. Secretly getting on crackbook at all hours of the day or night.

I'm an avid follower. You'd never know it because I don't update my status a lot or change my profile picture or upload snapshots. That's because there are two kind of facebookers. Those who change their stuff a lot, we'll call those people strutters because they like to strut their stuff and then there is the other category. The one I fit in. The stalkers. We'repretty self explanatory. We creep the cyber world but never reveal much of or own lives. Why? You ask? Simple.

Because we're boring.

We don't have interesting divorces or baby mamas to read about. We don't have crazy cousins (that are on facebook) or drug addicted siblings to post about. And as great as it is to not have those things, secretly we're a little jealous. Cause you, with your super interesting life will get 25 comments and will be at the top of my newsfeed even if I don't click "most recent". I however wil be halfway down the page without even a "like". And we all know our self-worth is based on facebook popularity.

How's that for irony?

Award from my Wifey.

So my beautiful Wifey over at 365 Days and Counting gave me a sweet award. The last time I got one of these I was bad and didn't actually post about it or pass it on or anything. But because Kindle is wonderful, I will play along. Thank you Kinnel for your love. :)

Now for those 5 lovely ladies.....

1) I will give it back to Kindle because she is beautiful and I love her and she doesn't always get the recognition the rest of us get because of her "situation". hmph
2)Maresa because she has helped keep me sane when the hubby was here, gone, or just here but gone in mind/spirit.
3)TheBlogtessa because she will always be honest and open and never fails to speak her mind. I respect her and I respect the fact that we can disagree on opinions but still appreciate and respect each other. 
4)Amy because she is such a strong individual. She has had a lot of bumps in the road and never lets it get her down.
5)Ines is such a fun blogger. I love to read her blog. If I only have time to read one or two blogs I can guarantee she is one of them.

 So there you have it ladies. ENJOY!!

An Ugly Spouse... by the Blogtessa

I've been an active "participant" in this argument debate that has been brewing on another site, and the Blogtessa has stood her ground. I completely agree with her and I find it sad that this is the way it has become.

I'm sad to say I had already been thinking about drifting away from the MilSpouse community to a small degree because it is such a petri dish of bad behavior. I think this has been the nail in the coffin for me. No worries, I will still love you all and support you all, I just think I need to branch out a little and find what else is out there. Please go read what The Blogtessa has to say.

The point I want to make is this. You may think you have it worse because your husband deploys, but let me tell you. My husband has deployed multiple times and during those deployments, I've watched other people's marriages fall apart. I watched them complain and I felt sorry for them. I spent my time thinking how much worse they had it than me. My husband might have been deployed but I was the lucky one because HE STILL LOVED ME.

And the last point I have to make? It isn't respectful for a wife going through a deployment to insult a wife who is having a hard time because she is not currently going through a deployment. It's not right to insult someone else because they "don't have it as rough". How would you feel if you posted "I'm having a bad day with this deployment" and a Gold Star Wife posted "You should just be grateful your husband is still alive. Suck it up". 

Not a comforting thought, is it?

Thank you for reading. I'm sorry it's such an irritating topic. In order to lighten the mood. I'm leaving you with pictures of kitty cats. :)

I've been a pretty bad blogger lately. I admit it. A million times a day I have something I think "Oh, I need to blog about that" but I am either too busy or too tired to actually sit down and write it. And that's a sad and awful thing. So here I am. I finally have time and energy to blog.

I have been sitting here drafting up our kitchen (the one that is going to be built soon) trying to get the cabinets and countertops and appliances just right. And on my breaks, and yes there are a lot of them, I Facebook. Who doesn't? It's like the ultimate time waster. I've been looking at pictures of some of the things we do or have done, and I miss them. Don't get me wrong, I don't miss Hawaii as a whole. Just the people. And the way things were before. They were so permanent whereas now things are so temporary. But soon we will have the house built, and the jobs we need/want, and kiddos on the way, and the "family" back together. :)

Yay. haha. Thanks for enduring the odd blog.

Yay! I'm on time! You guessed it, it's Wednesday!! So hop on over to Brie Marie for

What do I heart this week? I heart antiques. I really do. If I can repurpose or preserve something, I totally will. Wouldn't you rather have something old and meaningful? Not to say you can't buy new stuff, too. I just love the mix-up. :)

So what are you waiting for? Go join in on the fun!

Bloghop Monday!

This is my first time here so I thought I'd give it a whirl! Head on over to Marine Parents and join in on the fun!!!

Takin' it back, mixing it up

As I dried my hair yesterday (no I do not do this everyday), I was jamming to the Ipod (which I'm so against in principle, but my zen died... tear...) anywho, I'm jamming and I got to thinking about what a great collection of music I have. I mean, let's be real, I have great taste.

So I'm listening, and I'm jamming, and dancing drying my hair and I started thinking about the shuffle setting. No, I don't have an actual shuffle, but it works...

Currently we have the Shuffle for music mash-ups.

Before the shuffle setting we had the Mixed CD that we could pour our hearts into to show the one we "loved" so dearly how we felt without using our actual words.

For some of you, that was the beginning of music, but fear not, I'm old and decrepit so I can remember and share the Mix Tape.

Prior to the Mix Tape (and to me) but that which is in my possession, I know I'm so cool, was the 8 Track. And no, It's not something to run on. :)

And guess what? There was music before this! But alas, it was unfortunately not mixed unless it came from the factory that way. However, it was still cool and yes, the hubs and I enjoy these, too. There's something amazing about being able to speed it up and sing like the chipmunks. Kids today just don't know what they're missing. :)

I hope you've enjoyed my walk through history. I know I have. :)

You've got a friend in me.

These are my boys. All cuddled up next to the space heater we have cause its extra cold in the downstairs apartment. You'd think they like each other. Haha.

Honestly though, other than some minor stalking incidents they get along great. For a dog and cat anyways. But when one is hurting they always cuddle together and take care of each other. And when I'm hurting it sad, they always cuddle and take care of me.

I think its a lesson in friendship we all need to learn...

Who's surprised I'm late?! ROUNDUP!

So once again, I'm late. Big surprise. UGH.

Anywho, Lady is hosting the roundup this week! I'm sure you've already linked up but if not get your butt over there!!!

Real life

So its sad that I'm finally realizing what real life is. Real life is people letting you down, real life is things not going your way, real life is messy and unpredictable. And that sucks.

Not to be so depressing tonight but its been on my mind a lot lately. I have some fantastic friends, great family, and a wonderful husband I adore. But sometimes it just doesn't seem enough. And that's me being greedy. I have more than most, I need to be grateful. But darn it sometimes I just get so angry. My friends let me down or hurt my feelings and don't realize it because the only person I complain to is my hubby. And that isn't fair to him or our marriage.

There isn't much purpose to this post other than to ramble cause I'm upset tonight. But for one small moment I'm imagining I'm somewhere else off the radar. Somewhere quiet and peaceful, where I'm lonely by choice not by chance.

Life is Slower in East Tennessee

So the title pretty much tells all. Life is a lot slower here. And I love it. :) I hadn't realized I missed it. But I did.

Unfortunately, that doesn't leave me much to blog about. haha. I can say that it's pretty funny to drive around with the Hawaii license plates. People stare and stop us to ask questions a lot. The kinda questions like, "How did you drive here from Hawaii?"

Another girlfriend of mine said that she keeps seeing on her facebook wall status updates that read "Wow, just saw Hawaii plates on 321!!!" (321 is the main Highway through town)

I have been applying to jobs, so hopefully I can find something I ACTUALLY want to do. haha. Right now, I'm just unsure as to where I want to head with it.

In other news, our belongings from Arizona got here the other day. That has been a nightmare. To be updated later....

We Heart Wednesday (On Thursday)

So I'm a little late. Oooops.

Hop over to

And Link up!!!

What do I heart this week?
I heart Pretty Little Liars. That's right. A TV show. About teenage girls. And I LOVE it. I did some research that will blow your mind. Alison? She's 14 in real life. The others are all between 21 and 25. And get this, Ezra--He's younger than Spencer in real life. He's only 24. And also, Aria is from Memphis, TN. <3 Love <3

 Got a Secret can you keep it,
swear this one you'll save,
gotta lock it in your pocket,
taking this one to the grace.

If I show you, Then I know you
won't tell what I said,
Cause two can keep a secret,
If one of them is dead.
