A quick catch up

  • On the 15th me and Kamas celebrated 4 years of marriage. We have yet to spend one anniversary together. But I'm sure it will happen eventually. Maybe our 50th :)
  • Graduated with my Associates in Business.
  • Dixon turned one on the 22nd. We had a party at my Mom's house with family. D had a Sesame Street cake and got lots of presents.


  • Me and D moved back to 29 Palms the first week of October. My parents and Cole helped move us here. We also went to Lego Land.
  • Kamas returned from Deployment #3 on the 28th. His parents, Tyler, Milt and Melanie were all there when he got off the bus at 2 am.
  • D went to his first trunk or treat dressed as Elmo.


  • The Marine Corps Ball was in Las Vegas this year. Melanie watched D over night so we could go. I won $80 on a slot machine!
  • We spent Thanksgiving with Milt and Melanie.


  • D started walking this month.
  • We went to Idaho for 3 weeks
  • Spent Christmas with our families


  • Went to a New Years Party at our friends house, but only stayed till 9 :)
  • Kamas left for training at Camp Pendleton for 5 weeks (he is still gone)
  • Me and D went to Pendleton to see Kamas and spend the night.
  • We were minutes from getting our car towed. Luckily we arrived before the tow truck.
  • I started school again. I still hate it :)

Holy Crap I love this month. Fall is my favorite time of year and I believe that Fall starts today. Also really good things happen to me in September. Like getting married, 4 years on the 15th. And having Dixon, 1 year on the 22nd. And finishing school with my Associates in Business on the 12th. And moving back to California in about 3 weeks! September is also right before the month I get my husband back!
Dear September,
You Rock.
The End.
p.s. September is also cool because it is Brook's B-day month. Give her a shout out on the 17th!

Sometimes my heart hurts when I let myself think about how much I miss this guy

Half Way and Almost Done

Half Way
So we are pretty much half way done with this deployment. I still can't say that time has gone by fast for me, because it hasn't. But I feel like I can see the end. Kam is doing good and time is going by really fast for him :) I'm really glad July is here because it will be a busy month for me, then it will be August and then it will be time for me and D to move back to Cali. I am excited to go back to California even if it is 29 Palms. I am ready to live in my own house with my own stuff.
Almost Done
I am also starting my second to last class and I can't wait to be done with school. I hate it. For the past year and half I feel like I always have something hanging over my head i.e. homework. I will only have my associates but if I don't take a break now I will stab my eyes out with pencils. Online classes was pretty much the only option for me because I move sooooo much. I may not hate school so much if I went to an actual campus, but I don't see that happening anytime in the near future.

Accounting is the Bane of my Existance

So I just started my Accounting class last week and it is going to be a rough month. This is not my kind of thing. I will be honest and tell you that in most of my classes I don't read the book, I look up a few things here and there but mostly I just wing it. Im not going to be able to wing it with this class. And to make matters worse I had to order a stupid ebook. ebooks suck. So in order to do my reading assignments I have to be sitting at my computer. Lame. So instead of reading I do things like blog and order new swimsuits.

On a happier note, my Mom bought sidewalk chalk the other day. Its not the glow in the dark kind but I will be getting that later. Me and D were playing with it yesterday morning. D was more interested in eating the chalk than watching me draw.

Rain, rain go AWAY!

For as long as I can remember Malad has always been in a drought. Not enough snow fall, not enough rain, watering restrictions during the summer. Pretty sure the drought is over. It has either rained or snowed everyday since I have moved back. Not cool. Since living in California I have become a wimp when it comes to cold weather. I hate it. All I really want to do is to stand in the sunshine and draw with glow in the dark chalk (have you seen the commercials for that, it looks amazing, and I will totally be buying some. I'm not even going to pretend that it is for Dixon or my nieces and nephews. It will be for me.)
The rain is really messing up my weight loss regime. The regime includes going on a walk and eating less. I do OK with the eating less but I ROCK at walking. But people tend to frown at you if you go walking with your baby during a downpour, so I stopped doing that.
So to sum this post up, mother nature needs to cooperate and bring the sun so I can lose weight and not get Child Protective Services called on me for exposing my child to extreme weather conditions.
P.S. I have lost almost 8 pounds since I joined Weight Watchers. Only 10 to go.

What I've learned in 8 months

Dixon will be 8 months old in 5 days! That is crazy to me. The days seem to take F-o-r-e-v-e-r but the weeks go by so fast. I though I would share some things that I have learned in the past 8 months. Granted it not a lot because D in my first baby and I've only been doing this for 8 months.

  • Nap time is sacred. I did not fully understand that until D came along and now I count down the hours till it is nap time :)

  • Take all the advice you get with a grain of salt. I still have a hard time with this one because I live with my parents right now and they obviously know more about babies than me (they had 4). But I also need to remember that I am a good mom and its OK for me to do things my way

  • Having D on a schedule saves my sanity. But it is also OK to brake the schedule sometimes.

  • Its OK to ask for help and its OK to ask someone to watch D for a while. I have a hard time with that. I think it is because Kamas is gone and I feel like I have something to prove ( I don't)

  • My right arm is waaay stronger than my left arm because I almost always carry D with my right arm.

  • Its OK to let your baby play by themselves sometimes. I sometimes suffer from mommy guilt that I am not entertaining him every waking moment.

  • Don't let people pressure you into doing something you don't want to do. i.e. feed your baby ice cream and then have the night from h*ll because he won't sleep and screams all night.

  • wearing high heels to church is almost always a bad idea.
