Happy Thoughts:



For the whole month of November I think I reminded my husband EVERY single day that it was our anniversary on the 30th. Not that I thought he would forget, I was just SO excited that it was finally coming. It's amazing to me that it has already been one whole year since I married that man. The time flew by, but I guess that's how it goes when you're in the military. You learn ways to cherish every day that they are home, and make the time fly by when they are not.

So when the day FINALLY came I was SO ecstatic! I held the words back in the morning when we woke up because I wanted him to be the first to say it. We woke up at 4:45 like usual and I was expecting to hear "HAPPY ANNIVERSARY" right away... but it didn't come. He left for work and still nothing. I was SO sad all day because I didn't get a text message, a call... nothing. I really started to think he forgot. He got home from work that night and STILLLLL nothing! No present, no words, no poems... nothing! I was so mad I just started crying! ha ha now that I think about it I probably was being a little childish but I was really upset.

He told me he didn't have to be to work til 10 the next morning due to some meeting or something at work but I didn't even pay attention because I was upset. So we got up in the morning and I was still mad at him so I didn't say anything. He asked me if I wanted to go out to have breakfast since he had the morning off so I reluctantly said yes. We ended up at Cracker Barrel where my anger began to fade because we were having a good time. We had a delicious breakfast and it started POURING rain as we were leaving so he went to get the car and picked me up in the front. As we started driving away he said he had forgotten his cell phone so we had to turn around. We just got droids a couple months ago and I'm still intrigued by the fact that I have internet on my phone now, so I was playing around on it when there was a knock on my window.

I tuned to look (a little startled) and he was holding this HUUUUUGE teddy bear and a little box. I screamed because I was so excited. I opened the door and he handed me the box which had this adorable necklace with a locket that said "Promise" on the front.

We started to leave again and he said "That's not all... I also got the day off!" apparently his boss gave him the WHOLE day off so we could spend it together since had worked so late on our actual anniversary. So he took me to see "Tangled" which was absolutely ADORABLE! Then he took me shopping at Victorias Secret (Did I mention I'm spoiled?) and thennnnnn I got this....

Since we got married so spontaneously we never got wedding rings. I always knew we'd get them someday but it didn't bother me a whole lot that we didn't have them because our love is what's important. I am so blessed to have found such an amazing man. He is my world, and I cannot wait to spend the next eighty years with him.


I'm gonna miss Virginia

My time her is almost up for now. I will be going back to Texas in less than two weeks. I am not happy about it & I promised the hubby I wouldn't decorate for Christmas since we wouldn't be here for Christmas. He's been out on the boat for a little while now, and I couldn't help myself. They had a HUGE sale at Michael's on all Christmas items, so I bought a few things and made a wreath and a small Christmas tree for us. I love Christmas and I couldn't help it, my house felt so weird without any sort of decorations. I compromised though! I used ALL purple and a little turquoise since purple is his favorite color I hoped that might help him not be upset!

Here is our little tree...

Our wreath which I LOVE the way it turned out.

and a little crooked hanging on our door...

More Pictures!

Yesterday I met iwth another lovely photographer who's hubby bought her jewelry from me. I thought it would be great to have her take pictures of all my pieces for the new website I am working on. She decide she wanted to take pictures of me as well and she already posted a few so I thought I'd share!


Technical Difficulties

The blog is having a few issues right now as you can see... I'm not sure what happened, but I am trying to get it all fixed ASAP! (: It's much better than it was last night everything was effed up! Ugh...



I have a lot of news I'd like to share with everyone, so I thought I'd just put it all in one big post! Here goes:

First, since lately I have been a horrible, horrible blogger, I have handed over Thursday Five to Nicole from Flip Flops and Combat Boots. She absolutely loves it and has more time to make sure it gets done in a timely manner for ya'll! So make sure you check out her blog and if you don't already, be sure you follow her so you can continue with T5!

I just found out my hubby will be home several days earlier than he was supposed to be, and he hasn't been gon every long on this underway so that is extremely exciting! It means we get a few more days together before yucky "D-Day" comes along.

Unfortunately, I have lost my graphic software for the time being, so I can no longer do buttons, backgrounds, lay outs or anything of the sort. I am hoping I will have it back soon but our computer caught a virus so I thought I'd be brilliant and completely start over... well I forgot that I no longer have the box with the serial number for my graphic software... so bye bye it went.

I will be moving very, very soon. I'm not happy about it, but I think it will make my life easier to be around my family while my loverface is away. Soooo back to Texas I go for the next several months.

As soon as this dreaded move is over, I will be blogging more often like i used to. I am definitely going to need all the support and kind words to make it through this so please stick around with me!

That's all I can think of for now, but I'll definitely be back soon! I also have some great posts coming up for Mili Mondays over the next few weeks and I am always looking for more so please contact me if you'd like to be featured!


Pre-D Pictures

Hey everyone!

I know I have been non existent in this blogging world lately, but i haven't had time to do anything lately with this jewelry stuff. It's taking over I swear! Anyway I thought I'd share some of our pre deployment pictures with you, and I promise very soon I will be back in the blogging world I will definitely need the support of my fellow wives to make it through this deployment! These are just a few of my favorites, I don't know how I will ever decide on which ones to hang up as we got over 40 pictures!

tee hee, We had such an amazing time taking these and our photographer was so much fun! WE actually spent the weekend with Nicole from Flip Flops & Combat Boots and we had SOOOO much fun! Too much fun i think... because we were a little hung over in the morning, we met the photographer at 8am. Well we were supposed to but we overslept due to too much fun, and we didn't get there til 8:30. OOPS!

On top of that I wore a strapless dress to the shoot since it was the more complicated outfit to put on. We were in such a rush to get there I forgot our third outfit, AND my bra!! So our amazing photographer had to make sure you couldn't see any goodies in the photos with the white shirt!
