Havent had to much stuff happen to me today...(or the past couple of days) Had to change our insurance cause our current one doesnt insure in New Mexico... Had to call Tricare and make sure I could go see a doctor cause Im no where near a Fort, Camp or AFB... And I can I just have to pay $50 cause Im not in Prime no more... I dont care cause I dont go to the doctor that much...

Last night I watched a movie called "Taking Chance" and Oh my goodness that was a mistake... Its about a Col. bringing a marine back to his family after dieing in Iraq... I cried the whole movie like balling my eyes out crying... I never thought of "that could be Bryce" but in the movie the marine's Sgt that was there with him when he died talks to the Col. and has so much emotion and its heart broken. I was just praying that Bryce will never have to go and bring back one of his fallen brothers... I just pray that no one would die over there. All I can say its a great movie but I have warned you... If you are too emotional dont watch it but if you think you can do its a great movie...

Thats all I have to say right now... BYE BYE

Good news!

So as you know from my previous post that my hubby has been gone 90 days... What have I done in those 90 days you ask... I have lost 31 pounds! I do have to say I have been working my butt off (literally) trying to get back into the shape I was in High school... I let myself go... But Im trying to get back the way I use to be since Im still young and it will be easier now then 10 years down the road... I would love to lose another atleast 20 pounds, 30 would be good too tho LOL... I do have to say people are saying I dont need to lose another 30 pounds but that is my personal goal for myself... Your always harder on your self then you are on other people...

I just wanted to write and say YAY for 31 pounds!

90 days down...

275 left to go :( But hey atleast there is 90 out of the way right?
Today I have been pretty busy... Did 2 cuts and colors and that's better then sitting here being mopey cause its not going by faster!
But... Bryce got another recognition coin from a Colonel this time! It was amazing for him to get 1 let alone 2... I'm so proud of him and that everyone has been able to see what a hard worker he is and to get noticed... I know all you know what its like! Its so hard for our husbands to put out 100% everyday and not get noticed and it makes them not want to work as hard... But when you do get noticed it is just icing on the cake! So lets just say Bryce has had a really good couple of days...Days like that he says this isn't that bad... But the bad days are BAD... But I know that he has had better days then bad... Its just gloomy days over there when you see the flag at half mass.... If its your unit or not all those guys are his brothers... would do anything for any of them... When I talk to him I know that somethings bother him that he doesn't like telling me but he does out of respect for me and what he promised to tell me...
On a happy not tho (well for Bryce it is)
He bought one of his buddies PS3 for only $40! Yeah something to do with his Fiance having one and so he offered it to Bryce for that price...
I have NEVER been a person that likes games and I have seen wives fight and fight with their husbands to just get off the game and spend sometime with each other and I told myself I will never have a game console in my house...
Well for $40 bucks I guess we can but hubby already knows my problem with it and he agrees! so we will see as soon as he gets home... Bottom line tho it could turn into just a DVD player LOL!
Hope you guys have a great night...

Best kind of Sundays!!!

Sundays are always good but when you get to do the things you love Oh that makes it so much better!!!
So I went through my normal routine on Sundays getting up and going to church... But when I got back from church my wonderful dad said hey you want to go for a ride? And that only means one thing in my family... get your jeans on, pull your boots on and lets get on our horses! So on our ride we saw no wild life (boo hoo) but I got some beautiful pics! We rode about 12 miles and let me say my butt is sure feeling it but that is one of the greatest therapy's...You think of nothing...
Were we rode was on some of my Great Grandmas land and then the National Forest... It takes my breath away every time!

My dad on Keno...A pretty good looking horse I must say

I know, I know I look like a boy here but my horse doesn't care what I look like:)

My dad will be turning 57 this year and still gets on his horse almost everyday and ropes...It keeps him young!

This is us heading back into my home town of 300 people... Its such a beautiful town...It is in northern New Mexico and yes its not desert. LOL
I hope to move back to this town one day with my family...

2nd Wedding Anniversary

So I thought today that I would do a bio of me and my husband...

So when I just graduated high school I moved to Farmington NM with my cousin Katrina... We were so excited to be out on our own and just go to school... I didn't have a boyfriend at the time and I didn't want one either! (In high school I dated the same guy for 2 1/2 years I was done with bf's) Well in the LDS church they have a ward called the singles ward and that's where you are around people your age. They have classes that you can learn more about the book of Mormon and the bible. On Monday's they have FHE (family home evenings) where we play games and just hangout and have a total blast!!! So when I was in institute (classes) I saw a guy walk in who was tall and handsome...AND a cowboy!!! So of course at that moment I was like my type of guy but I was thinking of just being friends cause remember I didn't want a boyfriend... Lets just say we started talking and he asked me out on dates all the time...I wasn't ready tho so we would make it a huge group date every time... I felt bad but I was 18 and he was a returned missionary and come on he so wanted to get married!!! So for about 10 months I dodged the bullet and we never got serious or anything and that was my plan... But at the end of the spring semester I went threw one of the hardest times of my life...My wonderful grandmother who was the most wonderful woman you could have been around was in the hospital taking her last breaths... and at that time "the cowboy" was txting me and lets just say it was so nice having someone out of the family truly care for me and want to be there for me...

A couple of weeks later "the cowboy" asked if I would go to a Kenny Chesney concert with him... Of course I said yes who wouldn't its a concert!!! But I had a reservation about him cause he was a returned missionary and I was so not ready to get married... But my wise older sis Stacey gave me some words to hold on to...Then lets say from there we starting seeing each other almost everyday and a month in a half later he proposed!!! (See he totally wanted to get married!!!) But in those days of us dating I fell deeply in love with him and I'm so greatful that I let him in my life... He is my best friend and I'm so greatful that he chased after me for 10 months and didn't give up...I would have been the one who missed out on the best thing that could have happened to me...

We got married 4 months later on Oct. 13th 2007. This year we will be celebrating 3 years together... And in August I will be sealed to this wonderful man...

So "the cowboy" knew what he wanted and lets say with hard work and not giving up he got it!!!

Military wife

First time I read this poem was right before I went to hubby's BCT graduation...And oh how I had no idea how true this really is...Love it tho

Pic from BCT graduation right before our good bye's...

Lots of moving...
Moving far from home...
Moving two cars, three kids and one dog...all riding with HER of course.
Moving sofas to basements because they won't go in THIS house;
Moving curtains that won't fit;
Moving jobs and certifications and professional development hours.
Moving away from friends;
Moving toward new friends;
Moving her most important luggage: her trunk full of memories.
Often waiting...
Waiting for housing.
Waiting for orders.
Waiting for deployments.
Waiting for phone calls.
Waiting for reunions.
Waiting for the new curtains to arrive.
Waiting for him to come home,
For dinner...AGAIN!
They call her 'Military Dependent', but she knows better:
She is fiercely In-Dependent.
She can balance a check book;
Handle the yard work;
Fix a noisy toilet;
Bury the family pet...
She is intimately familiar with drywall anchors and toggle bolts.
She can file the taxes;
Sell a house;
Buy a car;
Or set up a move........all with ONE Power of Attorney.
She welcomes neighbors that don't welcome her.
She reinvents her career with every PCS;
Locates a house in the desert, The Arctic, Or the deep south.
And learns to call them all 'home'.
She MAKES them all home.
Military Wives are somewhat hasty...
They leap into:
Career alternatives,
And friendships.
They don't have 15 years to get to know people.
Their roots are short but flexible.
They plant annuals for themselves and perennials for those who come after them.
Military Wives quickly learn to value each other:
They connect over coffee,
Rely on the spouse network,
Accept offers of friendship and favors.
Record addresses in pencil...
Military Wives have a common bond:
The Military Wife has a husband unlike other husbands;
his commitment is unique.
He doesn't have a 'JOB' He has a 'MISSION' that he can't just decide to quit...
He's on-call for his country 24/7.
But for her, he's the most unreliable guy in town!
His language is foreign
And so, a Military Wife is a translator for her family and his.
She is the long- distance link to keep them informed;
The glue that holds them together
.A Military Wife has her moments:
She wants to wring his neck;
Dye his uniform pink;
Refuse to move to Siberia;
But she pulls herself together.
Give her a few days,
A travel brochure,
A long hot bath,
A pledge to the flag,
A wedding picture,
And she goes.
She packs.
She moves.
She follows.
What for?
How come?
You may think it is because she has lost her mind.
But actually it is because she has lost her heart.
It was stolen from her by a man,
Who puts duty first,
Who longs to deploy,
Who salutes the flag,
And whose boots in the doorway remind her that as long as he is her
Military Husband,
She will remain his Military Wife.
And would have it no other way.

This verse is for all the soldiers over sea's (including my hubby)...My thoughts and prayers are with you...

"Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, he it is that doth go with thee: he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee."
Deuteronomy 31:6

Cards anyone???

Me and My parents made our way north up to Durango, Colorado to see my grandparents and my Aunt and Uncle... It was my granddaddy's 86th birthday so we decided that we needed to go...Which I'm so glad we did cause boy do I love being around them...And also this year it is going to be my grandparents 60th Wedding Anniversary so I took some pictures of them for the invitations...
