I have my neices and nephew til thursday. I love having time to spend with them cause when Im over in TN I dont get to see them very much. This weekend I will be in Colorado for my grandparents 60th Anniversary. Which Im excited about cause I will see family that I havent seen for awhile.

And again sorry that I havent posted anything in a long while but it has been hecktic. Had 4 days of helping with a rodeo, sold those necklaces that I made, and tried to fit in seeing friends that I havent seen in like 4 years!

Loved the weekend but now Im so tired its not even funny.
Ill try to post again after the weekend with pictures from the 60th party.

P.S. Hubby will be here in less then 3 weeks! Oh my goodness I hope it goes by fast. But then I hope for the 15 days to go by alot SLOWER.

Here are some of the projects I have done this week... Just trying to stay busy!

Here are some of the flower headbands that make a pony tail look good!

It stays on good and makes my life easier since I will be able to just wear a ponytail and still look good!

This frame was just plan ol' wood and I got paint and elmer's glue and there you go CRACKLE!

Here is the bird cage veil that I will be wearing for the pictures before we get sealed. I think im going to add some to it but its atleast 90% done!

Adventures at the DMV

So today I went to the DMV to get hubbys truck registered here in New Mexico... My name is not on the truck so lets just say I had to walk into the DMV with a filing cabnet! (You guys know how it is) And they were so surprised that I had everything that they needed. I told them that the military gives you all the paper work you need you just got to make sure you dont lose it! They were very nice which was so surprising cause usually at places like that all of them have sticks up their butts. (if I worked at a place like that I think I would be the same way!)

I need to point out to that Arizona so rips off people with registering your vehicles. (that was were I changed our registration from) They wanted us to pay for a 1 year registration $297.00 and today I got a 2 year registration and a 8 year license for only $180.00! (a savings of $117.00) And truefully Arizonas roads are not that much better then New Mexico roads.

Im so happy to be a New Mexico resident again... I grew up here my whole life and I would love to move back here someday. Hubby was born here in NM but moved to AZ when he was six and lived in his home town til he was 22...Then moved back to NM and met me! But he agrees with me that NM is just a better fit for us finacially and over all just the way we want to live...(with land) and AZ butt raps you on land also so probably will never move back there!
Over all did what I need to do and was out of there! Hope you guys have a wonderful night!

Weight loss update

So I weighed myself this morning and since Bryce has been gone 136 days I have lost 50 pounds exactly! I have a couple of more pounds I want to drop but not much... Just another 5 to 10 then I will be good to go! Honestly it doesn't fell like I have lost 50 pounds but my pants are falling off of me!LOL

Since I have lost the weight, I'm so excited for Bryce to see me... I weigh less then when we got married and so does he! Bryce has lost a total of 57 pounds so I'm catching up to him! I don't have a pic and I'm in my pajamas so no pic today:( But I promise a pic at least by tomorrow:)

Have a great night!

Im Sorry!

Sorry for not keeping up with my blog... I have been in a weird funk... I dont know if its cause hubby is coming home for R&R in a month or so... Or what but I just dont feel like I have anything to write about...

So on a not so good note... Heard from hubby but wasnt the best phone converstation... We didnt fight or anything but just heard things about whats going over there... Not so good stuff but Im so so happy that he feels like he can talk to me about this stuff cause im the wife that needs to know the good the bad and the ugly...

On another great and happy note... bought me and hubby a 4-wheeler! A used one from a older country man that took amazing care of it... We are so excited cause we will have so much more fun camping and stuff! Yah for 4-wheeler! This is something Bryce has wanted so bad. Its something that just keeps on giving and giving...
