Spinning and Pilates class???- What the heck is that? If I go to a hour spinning class it is because I was the cardio benefit of an hour spinning class. I am really confused when you want me to spin for 45 min, then you expect me to flop around on a mat on the floor after I am all sweaty and slippery. I also REALLY appreciate you being able to fit YOGA into it to. Next time can we do water Yoga, and mix in some zumba? c'mon people
Totally off the subject- So I went to a zumba class today, and there was this lone guy in the class. Quite the rarity actually to have one good looking marine in a zumba class with like 20 other gym moms. I was pretty amused about it, untill I saw the teacher. At first nothing special cute girl with red and blonde hair, nothing out of the ordinary. Untill she started dancing. HOLY COW white girls aren't supposed to be able to move their butts like that! Seriously, I found my self just standing there, hypnotized by the booty. I have never seen anything like it. So for me it just made me feel inadaquit, and I felt totally lame being in the class. I know why single and handsome was there though... LOL
My son is the best!- No sarcasm there, he really is! So he told me when he grows up he wants to build houses. I asked him if he would build one for me and he said yeah, then he added "but I would build one for Daddy next door so you guys wouldn't have to fight. "
From the mouth of babes huh? I'm actually really embarassed to post this but sometimes you have to remember the bad as well as the good
This is me and my nephew Zach, who I miss dearly. He is such a sweet little boy, and he has such a sweet spirit, but all boy.
This was one of the most memorable days of my life. While Dan was PA in the airforce he took me up in a KC- 130 and we flew from Layton Utah all the way to the grand canyon. All the sudden I look out the window and there were 5 F-16's flying in formation right outside my window!! I got to actually watch the f-16 refuel... absolutly amazing. This was also the day that I decided to let Dan follow his dreams and become a marine.
This is me as a little girl, does it remind you of Georgia at all??? I think so
This is my friend Ashley and me, I'm the one in the ridiculous hat. The day we met we just hit it off, we did all kinds of crazy things together. We played strip poker on a LDS church roof, we would take clothes in fitting rooms and try them on and take pictures, we really did everything together. The only shame is we have totally different taste in guys, in highschool it was good because we never wanted to date the same guy. But it seems after highschool we have grown apart because of the men in our lives. It makes me really sad, so Ash, if you read this, you and I need to meet up for a girls weekend.
This was my wedding day. I was 19 and 5 months pregnant, Dan was 20. It was a really scary time, but the one thing that I love about this picture is how tightly we were holding eachothers hands. No matter how crazy life was, we could hold on to eachother. I can't say the last 5 years have always been easy, but I would say it was worth it.
This is my little Kat, its amazing how young she is but how many different stories I have about her. One of the scariest moments was the day after she was born when her doctor came in and woke up me up and said "Katherine is not able to breathe on her own we are going to have to put her on a ventilator". I thought I was going to lose my baby. I am SO thankful for this little child that I have been blessed with.

I had a dream that I rented a hotel room for 2 nights... for just me. I got to take a bath with no interruptions, watch what I wanted on TV, I slept through the night with no one waking me up, and I slept in as late as I wanted. I think I even took naps during the day.
Now why am I SO desperate for sleep that I am dreaming about it? LOL! I really would LOVE to rent a hotel for myself for a couple nights. It would be nice just to have silence for a few moments.

I just found that quote from a news source. Of course I laughed a little, how do you come up to someone, shake his hand, then push him off a ledge?? Freaking crazy!
So today I found a good home for the kittens... YAY no more kittens!! I'm a little sad, but mostly happy. I figured I would find them homes now while they are still really cute, down the road if I had to get rid of them I don't know if I would be able to find good homes.
Thats pretty much it for today!!!

I rinsed out Georgias hair as fast as I could but you can see, she did change her hair color a little... its not too obvious.
The rest of the day we just played dress up, took pictures, went to the gym (144.6 lbs), went to the dollar store. It turned out to be a pretty fun day, but it did not start out well.
I'm so in love with this baby!!
What a handsome boy my son is!\
Georgia playing dress up
I am very self consious about smiling because of this... so why am I afraid to get a crown??? and why am I willing to drive all the way up to VA to do it?
It makes me so sick to think about having my front tooth filed down to that.... of course my teeth aren't that nasty... and my gums aren't that nasty either. But I still feel like vomiting thinking about the process.

Update: on my weight loss goal for while Dan is gone!!!
I started at 146.7 and now I am 147!!! wait... crap, that means I have gained weight. oops. I'm really not that worried about it, I probably drank a glass of water before I stepped on the scale.
I was offered a job today!!
It's with my arch-nemisis, ***** ****. I would make enough to pay someone to watch my kids... and I really think my kids need a change of scenery. I hate the thought of leaving Kat. I really think it would be good for the older kids, and it would probably be good for me too. The only problem is I really would be taking another BIG bite of humble pie.
I would definently be able to make some money... but I would HATE to tell anyone where I worked.
I really think the reason I am getting in this huge funk, is because I am getting antsy about the deployment coming up. Dan just starting to be gone for his work up, already I am feeling trapped in my house, tied down with kids. Doing the same chores over and over and over... I adore my kids, and I am really thankful for this time with them. But it is hard for both the kids and I to not have a break from the monotony.
I think I am going to do it... I think I am going to get a part time job, If it doesn't work, I will quit :) My other options would include: going back to school, moving across country to be near family, gaining a lot of weight then trying out for the show biggest loser... really... I'm young I could do anything.... I could even start a letter writing campaign for a ridiculous cause.... ooohhhh
Seriously this has been the STUPIDEST blog ever... so I really hope you didn't waste your time and read all the way to the bottom. Anyone want to come over for late night, kids are in bed margaritas???

So here is my response:
LOL- I actually appreciate you being concerned about my license being legit.
Living on base is not free. If you live on base they take a large portion of income out of your check, its called your BAH. There are a lot of perks to being in the military, our theaters on base are really cheap, ooh and our commissary sells food for less than a grocery store in town. so if you envy the amount a private makes (1,399 a month) maybe you too should join the military, that way you could live on base for "free"
The name calling is really cute, did you make it up yourself? Kitchen beautician... it even rhymes.
I really hope you have a wonderful day, because really your ignorance has made mine :)
Have you guys ran into this attitude? I can't stand it, and I run into it a lot. If camp Lejeune was not in this town. This town would not exist.

Dan leaves on Monday for a few weeks, I am not too thrilled about him leaving. SO being the passive aggressive person that I am, I am going to feed him eggs all day on sunday. We are going to start with steak and eggs in the morning, then egg salad sandwiches for lunch, for a snack? Bacon and egg quiche. Lastly for dinner I will make him some kind of egg thing as well. I will make sure there is some quiche left over for him to take with him in the morning.
So are you wondering why exactly this is passive agressive? If Danny eats too many eggs, which he loves eating, he rips the NASTIEST farts ever. So I am thinking it should make the bus ride to AP hill a little more interesting for the other guys :)
2. While dan is gone...
I am going to try and lose 10 lbs. I still go to the gym all the time, but it has become a place to relax without kids rather than a place to work out. So I have become a little lazy, and I have been eating massive amounts of junk food. For instance the carrot cake I had for breakfast this morning.
10 lbs might be a little high, but it is a nice round number. What am I supposed to aim for??? 8. I always eat healthier while Dan is gone, and hopefully I can keep my butt moving in the gym :)
3. June 3rd.

My kids loved the merry-go-round. They were WAY too busy to look at the camera and smile :)
Tommy then wanted to go on a kids ride that spins you pretty fast. It was a lot of fun at first. just look at that grin!
The guy who was working the ride thought he would be extra nice and give the kids a really long ride. But as you can see from Georgia's face it started to be a little less fun, and she was getting dizzy.
The guy REALLY was being generous with the length of the ride, and well, he wouldn't stop it. So after seeing this look on Tommy's face I decided it needed to stop NOW. It wasn't so much fun anymore. They both recovered quickly but neither of them wanted to go on anymore rides.

did you even know they sold Nasty light in bottles??
I get to the shell station grab some cheap nasty beer, and go to check out. The guy asks me how old I am. I pause... wait... umm... 23... then he asks to see my ID. I guess most people know their age right away. Then I realize CRAP... I'm not 23 I'm 24. Now I look like I have a fake ID, I am buying crappy beer so I look like a college student. So then I try and distract him from my mistake. You guys sell socks? that's weird, do you sell many? Then he says... That's not the weirdest thing we sell. I said oh yeah? he then says WEED!!!
One last picture of the day just for giggles.... this is why I have to hide peanut butter in my house. If she finds the peanut butter, like she did today. She takes a big hand full and it is like her movie snack and will just lick it until it is gone. On the plus side, it keeps her occupied....

The base is....
coffee grounds and olive oil or jojoba oil
The coffee grounds adds caffeine, and exfoliates skin really well. Caffeine is the main ingredient in most over the counter anti cellulite treatments. Caffeine increases blood flow, and acts as a diuretic, so it dehydrates fat cells. The olive oil is mainly a carrier oil, but it is also very good for the skin and leaves the skin feeling very soft.
other things I add:
Rosemary essential oil- Tones skin (don't use while pregnant)
Grapefruit or citrus essential oils- works as astringent/ detox
So that's it. I don't measure I just put used coffee grounds in a bowl, add a good amount of oil, then add essential oils. The massage while applying goes a long way. It also increases blood flow. So get neked, get in the shower and apply it libberly wherever you have cellulite. Rub it in and use it to exfoliate. Leave it on about 10 min. Then turn on water and rinse off. Results are temporary, and you should notice a difference after 1-3 times.
Don't try and rinse off in the bath tub, it has to be the shower.... this is kinda messy :)
Easy huh? I have also read that Caffeine is in a lot of face products, and eye creams and such. I am considering trying coffee grounds on my face as well. I will not add the oils, I might try just adding some to my face wash. If nothing else it will exfoliate.
So let me know if you try it.

I have been rearranging my house lately and trying to figure out the best place to have my salon area. I think I found it! I cut my husbands hair tonight and the lighting was PERFECT! I am really excited to have a room specifically designated for doing hair. I can not wait to start really doing hair again. I really take a lot of pride in doing hair, and I really get frustrated that I am doing it out of my house rather than in a nice salon.
Every time I try to stop doing hair, I find myself missing it so badly. So I am really hoping that if I am able to create a nicer area in my home, that I will be able to feel proud of my work and where I am working.
I am off to make my homemade anti-cellulite goo. Really, it actually works. It's not a permanent fix, but it works long enough to get my butt in a bikini :) I was thinking about doing before and after pictures, but really how many pictures of my butt do you really want to see?

So I check on him 15 min later after I calm down. I figure I better get the body out of the way and throw it away... yeah well it is still alive!!! if you notice the head is completely removed from the body and guts are squished out, but it is still moving (I thought about getting a video). NASTY NASTY creatures!!!! My biggest fear is that one day I am going to find out when I am putting my shoes on... GAHHHH! Maybe that is why I have only been wearing sandals.
Well anyways, I really had a freaking awesome day today. Even with the sunburn and cockroaches. I hope everyone has a wonderful mothers day tomorrow :)

So how does this justify starting a blog? Jessica told me to start a blog, so I did I thought it would give me a reason to post a picture of my new door. The other reason to start a blog???
This handsome man told me that blogs were lame. I find a lot of the things that he thinks are lame to be a good use of my time :) (Like taking a surfing lesson, going to church, and taking a day off work)
This handsome man is my husband. He had to wear a suit for something today and I could not remember the last time he was in a civilian suit. I had to take a picture.
These are the flowers my mom sent me for Mothers day. Pretty, right? I am not sure about the florist having all yellow flowers and just one pink rose. I really appreciated the flowers though.
So I have a confession to make, I sent my mom and MIL not only the same set of fruit flowers, but what I wrote on the cards was exactly the same. I am actually feeling pretty guilty about it. Usually I really go out of my way to try to put a lot of thought into gifts, I try to make them very personal. I did the bare minimum this year. I will have to make it up to them another time.
Well this is it for my first blog. How did I do? Should I delete this and pretend I never tried???
