My name Is Michel, I am a full time student majoring in education, a full time wife to my airman, and a full time mother to our two fur babies for now! I am a southern girl at heart and proud of it. I enjoy just about any outdoor activities, and love basketball. Coffee is definitely my weakness, especially here in the North West. I adore my husband and our family. We miss them much but enjoy our life in the Air Force.

My Airman, a lovable, caring, sweet, car loving, hardheaded man! : ) but he is my world. He is a boom operator in the Air Force and so far he loves his job. When he isn’t working he is probably working on his car, or on the internet finding things for his car. He is crazy, but you just can’t ask for a better husband.

Highschool sweathearts, that stuck together trough it all and ended up falling head over heels for each other. Married on November 23, 2009 and loving our wild and crazy life as two southerners living in the Northwest!

Bitter sweet

Today was a bitter sweet day. We have had family here for the past few days, and it was really nice to see them. It has been over a year that we have gone without seeing any family, so having some come visit us was a real nice treat. But seeing them go today was a real downer. We really enjoyed spending time with them and exploring Washington more. I was amazed at how much we have not done since we have been here and how much MORE we have to do before we live. Which we all know will be no time soon. : / But oh well. Instead of me explaining all what we did I figured I would just share some pictures. Pictures are always better than words and I have TONS of them.

Okay I'll stop here. HA. I just have so many good ones it is hard to choose. But as you can tell we pretty much went hiking and enjoyed the parks we have. It was such a nice weekend here and perfect to go outside all day.

via FB

So I have recently gotten a post via Facebook from a friend back home complaining about how I have forgotten about my blogging friends and how I have not blogged since Joe has gotten home. So with that said I figured I would update you guys on my life. Things are great I am truly blessed to have my husband home even if it is for three weeks. He will be leaving again within this month, but I am excited about this one. He is going to South America for a month and I am going to visit for a week. I am stoked about getting to soak up some sun while I am there because I have really missed it. I will make sure to take pictures to share with you all. Besides this my life really has not been that exciting. Work consumes most of my life and it is really depressing because I am starting to hate the management and how they run this place. BUT i love what I do and I am going to be the bigger person and stick with it. I also got my camera that I wanted for my birthday and I love it! it takes really good pictures, but I just wanted it for me, not to get into photography or anything. I just like having good photos for my scrap booking. 
Other exciting news is that family is coming Wednesday to visit. It has been a year and half since we have seen them and I am looking forward to it. However, Thursday my baby girl, Auzza, gets spayed and I am so sad and worried about it. hopefully she does well. Other than this there is nothing to add, which is why I have been slacking and not boring you all with my life. I am however catching up on your blogs and i cant wait. I have missed so much. Here are some pictures that have been taken within the bast 3 weeks.

finally hit 73 here

So here you go Nikki, this post was just for you : ) Miss you!

No motivation at all.

School is so over rated. I know way to many people that have spent so much money on going to school to get their degree's and they aren't even working in that general area. Instead they settled for a job that they could have gotten without a degree. So why am I going to school? I have no idea. I really dont. I guess the only reason why I am still going is because I know my family would freak if I didn't finish. Its not like they pay for it, because they dont. They just expect me to finish and that is honestly the only thing keeping me going. BUT this semester was a big eye opener. . I have received one of my grades for my class and I didnt do so hot. I am really scared to find the others out. Working full time and going to school full time is kicking my ass. I know you all are thinking well dont go full time to school, well it is either me go full time and get financial aid and all my scholarships to pay for school or me not go full time and me pay for school. I would much rather my school be paid for instead of me paying. So I have decided to take the summer off. I was debating to take classes because I could have graduated, with only my associates though, and taken off the semester after. But I am not sure what is going to happen after summer. Maybe I will be motivated to get back into.

But on a sad note, I have lost 3 followers since two days ago. BOOO. : ( I guess my life is boring hahah.
On a happy note tomorrow is my birthday!! YAY, and the hubby comes home so soon. the days are getting lower.

My husbands guilty pleasure. .

Alright, to fully share the whole meaning of this story I have to start from the beginning and share to the end now. I once blogged about how my husband traded in our Nissan Sentra for the car we have now, Subaru STI. I also filled you guys in on how he has traded his car 3 times within a year because he was not satisfied and has a car disease. No lie. Well I figured since the STI was a car he has always talked about he would be satisfied and not think twice about getting another and I would FINALLY be able to save money up so I could get what I wanted. Well this was until last month, I thought anyways. We were talking on skype and he was saying how he wished he didnt buy the STI and bought something cheaper that could be paid of sooner and have cheaper payments. I was shocked and told him that he was nuts and that we are not trading it in and that he is acting like we are struggling with money. We both know that we aren't struggling at all, and we both make enough money combined to do things we want and not crunch when bills roll around. He was still set in his head that he just wished he would have done different. WELL that was until yesterday! I get on face book to an updated status saying, 

" Michel is going to kill me".

I start reading to find out that he just bought things for his car without letting me know. . . After we had talked about saving money and not spending anymore on his car so I can get a SUV. Then I get a text from him, so i decided to act like I didn't know at all. His first words to me was, 

"what kind of camera did you want for your birthday?"

This little butt-hole is trying to manipulate me with the camera I want for my birthday, that I should get either way. If he spent that money or not. Keep in mind I still have no idea how much he has spent, or what he got. I then tell him what I want and he says that when he comes home, which is very soon, he is planning on getting it for me. He still hasn't told me about the car until I ask why all of sudden he wanted to know. So he proceeds to tell me that he spent money on his car, without saying how much. I then keep asking him how much he spent, over and over. It takes him a while to tell me, and I'm thinking its going to be like 1200 bucks or something crazy. Nope it was just 700 bucks. I say this like we have 700 bucks to throw away, we really don't because that is 700 buck we have saved so I can trade my car in. But I was happy to know it was just 700. I did however hammer him about doing this, and explained to him that if I went out and spent 700 bucks on clothes or whatever he would be so mad. His response to this was,

"Yeah, you are right. I did not think about it that way, I would be pissed."

First off I know I'm right, the women are always right. : ) and secondly he never thinks about things before doing them. granted I was happy it was only 700 dollars, but I was still upset that he did it so sneaky. I think I made him feel pretty bad about the fact that was money we had saved for my car because he then continued to talk about how we can go car shopping when he gets home. Um no thank you. I told him I do not want to be the couple that dreads when the bills are up to be paid and that I want us to be able to have fun. He then threw at me what I threw at him a month earlier.

"You act like we are struggling with money, we aren't we have enough between us both to afford another car payment." 

Oh how the things you say can come back and bite you in the butt. But I still don't want to get a car just yet. I know that we can afford it but I also know that we are going to want to do a lot of things this year. BUT ill take the camera for sure. : ) So this is my husband guilty pleasure= His car! I wish it was something that was not so dang expensive, but what can I do. . .  And he got lucky i must say. I thought the camera I wanted was going to be super expensive because it just cam out this month, but i looked the prices up and its only 700 at the most.but this is the camera I want, Fugifilm HS20 EXR

I don't know why I am so addicted to Fugifilms, but I love them. My aunt has one and I was in love with it.

Happy Easter

Considering that I have no husband here and no kids to celebrate Easter with, it has been a good one. Lets just say my animals have officially been spoiled and enjoyed there Easter baskets they received today.Yesterday my friend Caitlin, who always brings me into a better mood, text me to go to walmart because she was making her husband a basket. I was already having a downer because it another holiday without the husband. But the trip to Walmart was much needed. We decided to do baskets for our fur babies .

I have to admit we got some of the craziest looks from people as we were walking around with our baskets full of treats and toys for cats and dogs. One guy even walked by me and said, " You are the smartest person I have seen here today." He must really hate kids. LOL.  As we were at Walmart we also decided to get together later that night to dye some eggs. All together I ended up spending 35 bucks on baskets for my fur babies. But hey they are my kids for now, so it it ok. I am planning on going back after today to get all the goodies on sale to make Joe one, since he will be home SOON! eeeekkkkk...

But this morning when I gave them their baskets Auzza was going nuts. She could not decide on what she wanted first. When she finally decided she grabbed out of the Cat basket the Cat toys. She would! Needless to say she loves all her treats and has been given tons today, after she does a trick of course.

Now we are about to head over to a friends house to grill some ribs and enjoy the sun that is shinning here AGAIN today. This is the second day in a row it has been nice. Makes me want to go and put my swim suit on and lay out. But its not that warm yet. DARN.

 Oh and I can't forget to share some pictures of our lovely dyed eggs we did last night. I found out that it has been a very long time since I have done this. But it was fun and we had some good ones, that did not crack. :)

Haha, I would not make it without her.
I hope everyone enjoyed their Easter and had fun hunting eggs and spending it with friends and family.

Race For the Cure

Today was an amazing day with a group of amazing people I have here. It was the Race For the Cure, and a bunch of us got together and we registered for this race, made shirts to enter into the t-shirt contest, and planned a big day around it. We ended up raising over 1,000 dollars for breast cancer in the process to and our shirts we made ended up raising 180 dollars. So all in all we had fun doing a good deed. I have ran many 5k's in my life, considering I did run cross country in high school, but this thing was huge. There were so many people here and it took forever for us to get started and weave our way through the massive amounts of people. But it was truly a blast and even though it took me 29 min to run it, it was still fun! We also won the contest for our t-shirts and got a gift card to a coffee shop here. Oh yes. we ended up stuffing our faces at Red Robin after and my two of my friends came home to get our puppies to take them to the park. It was a beautiful sunny day here and I was not letting it go to waste. I also signed up today for Blooms Day. Which is another Race here in Washington that is supposedly really big. People from all over travel here to run a 10k and they say there are so many people that it takes an hour for everyone to get past the start line!!! It is going to be interesting. It is in two weeks  so hopefully I can make it 7.46 miles. . .

I am so sad to say goodbye to the weekend but I am counting down the days till my birthday and till when Joe comes home. So they need to hurry!! Hope everyone had a good weekend.
