education education education

i need to go to school. like seriously.and after kicking around the idea for the past 4 1/2 years...its time for me to stop TALKING about it and just DO IT.

I want a career. as much as i absolutely ADORE staying home with my 2 beautiful daughters...i feel like I need more. does that make sense? I need to learn. i need to grow. i need to freaking go to school!

I have been accepted to UNF twice. once in 2006 and again  in 2008. amazingly, each time I get accepted...Sailor Man knocks me up. so I never end up going.

This time I applied to FSCJ (to break the UNF/pregnancy curse lol).

But right now im stuck between 2 major career choices. To be an RN, which is what I have wanted to do with a passion since I had Princess in 2007....or to be an elementary school teacher,which is what I have wanted to be since...well...forever!

Someone come make this decision for me :( yes, im whining. yes, its annoying. Deal with it lol

I'll update more when i make this life altering decision. oh. and one more thing...myCAA is incredibly confusing and irritating.

That is all

Nighty Night <3

flib flabbing fridays

so for the 2nd night in a row, im sitting out on my back porch with the laptop. i think this may be how i will blog from now on. its so nice out here, actually has a small chill in the air and im bundled up in a comforter lol. quite cozy.

hmmm. when was the last time i posted new pics on here? well, i cant remember, which means its time to update!!!! some pics of the girls from today, trick or treating at the zoo in their costumes, me at the carrie underwood concert, and one of Itty Bitty in the new ERGObaby carrier that i freaking LOOOOOVE!!!

Thats all ive got for ya'll tonight. Have a blessed night!

just some random ramblings

well hello there miss blog. long time no see, as usual. im sure you are tired of my sorry excuses and the way i have been treating you. but please just try to bear with me for a little bit longer as i hopefully get back into the swing of blogging regularly lol!

anywho. how has everyone been? anything exciting going on?
things have been the same here on the family front. Princess is getting smarter and smarter everyday. she kills me with how fast she is growing up! :( until i was a parent, i neverunderstood how bitter sweet birthdays could be! she will be turning 4 in march...ahhhhh! :/ Itty bitty, on the other hand, isnt so itty bitty anymore lol. she will be 6 months on the 6th! can you believe it? carazy! we have been supplementing with formula for the past 2 months. and as much as i hated having to do it, i know now in my heart that it was the right decision. in the first month alone, she gained 2lbs that she desperately needed! she has her 6 month well baby on the 8th, so i will update then on how much more weight she has gained. shes getting chunky (finallllly!) so im excited to see the final numbers!

Sailor man is going hollywood! lol! no but seriously, he is. He and a few other sailors from the ship have been casted as extras in the new movie, Battleship! pretty cool huh? im prety sure he is just one of many who will be sitting around in some scene, but HEY! its still a major movie lol!

For the many many many peoples who have been asking, YES we are still cloth diapering. and YES i have plans in the future to update my CD blog and to start posting reviews. I just get so side tracked that i forget lol.

My mom had her surgery on her spine to repair one of her disks and to clean up some bonespurs. She is recovering nicely, but its a long road and prayers would still be greatly appreciated!

and here is a little rant for all of ya'll tonight lol. We had to resod our front lawn last month and paid just under $900. once the sod was done, our landscaper told us to water it for 30 mins, 3 times a day. lo and behold, we get our first JEA bill and HOLY SHIZNIT its freaking $450!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! so we are kinda stuck between a rock and a hard place...stop watering as frequently and save money on our water bill...but risk losing our expensive as crap grass. lovely huh? awwwww,the joys of being a homeowner lol!

welp ladies and gents. thats all ive got for ya tonight. im sitting outside on my patio right now, the night is GORG, and i think im just going to kick back and relax.

night <3

30 Days- Day 23

day 23- something you crave for a lot

hmm. this can be taken diff ways. Like a craving for food, or a craving for other things.
If its food...i dont have a usual craving lol. I bounce between wanting different things day to day.
If its for something different...then my biggest craving would be affection. dont get me wrong, I get a ton from my kids and husband. But im a biiiiiig PDA person lol and Sailor Man isnt. He has come a long way tho, and for that I love him more than life <3

30 Days- Day 22

day 22- what makes you different from everyone else

There are 2 people responsible for making me an individual, and not just another follower. they have made me comfortable in my own skin, and helped me embrace everything that makes me ME. And I respect them as much as I love them.

My Parents <3

Oh, and I might as well say it (especially since you both said I would thank ya'll one day). THANK YOU for being as strict as you were while I was growing up. Lord knows I needed it :)

30 Days- Day 21

day 21- a picture of something that makes you happy

When I look at my 2 beautiful daughters...How can I NOT be happy?
