Day 7 (YES I forgot again!)

So much for trying to post everyday. LOL!

Day 5. A picture of your favorite memory

The day I saw Josie’s heartbeat for the first time. OMG, I never thought it would sound so beautiful! I can’t believe she’s almost here after all that we’ve been through!

Day 6. A picture of a person you’d love to trade places with for a day

Katy Perry. Hands down. I wish I could be a singer, I just don’t have the chops for it. That and she’s freaking GORGEOUS! I love her!

Day 7. A picture of your most treasured item

My wedding ring. I actually picked it out (kind of) it reminds me everyday that I married the man of my dreams. Even though some of those dreams are nightmares. 😛

Day 4 (Yup, I forgot Day 3!)

I was busy yesterday… SORRY! Good news is, our computer is all set up now so I can post all the time!

Day 3. A picture of the cast from your favorite show

Gotta love GLEE! I love listening to all the songs over and over. Sometimes, they do a much better job than the originals!

Day 4. A picture of your favorite night

Really, any girl’s night out is awesome. But this one was fun. Melody, Me and Robyn (and I think Robyn’s roommate at the time) went to Dave and Busters. We had an awesome time and got hit on by weird guys. FUN!! I love getting together with Melody too, she’s definitely my blast from the past. 🙂

This picture made me realize that Melody should have been my day 2. 😦 Womp womp.

Day 2

Day 2. A picture of you and the person you have been closest with the longest

My husband of course! I really didn’t want to use him. Unfortunately I moved a lot growing up and never had that one person who was always there. When I go home there’s not one person who I have to see. I did consider Andrea. She’s hands down one of my longest friends, but 1- I only met her in August 07. 2- I can’t find a single picture of the two of us. But she is my longest close friend. How sad is that? My closest friends are from the Navy. Stacey, Darcie, Andrea and Robyn. I’m gonna miss them when I get out.

Anyway, Juan is my best friend. He’s my everything. I can’t imagine being without him.

Day 1

Day 1. A picture of yourself with 15 facts

1- I’m pregnant with my first baby after 4 years of trying.
2- I love that I have a job but I hate my line of work.
3- I met my husband in the summer of 2002 and have been with him since 2003.
4- I joined the Navy on a whim.
5- I love teaching people new things.
6- I love to learn but hate doing the work when it comes to school.
7- I’m sensitive. People can hurt my feelings very easily without really trying.
8- I would love to be more creative. I just don’t have the gene.
9- I’m scared of the dark.
10- I’m a Texans fan. NOT a Cowboys fan.
11- I have no idea what I want to do when I get out of the Navy.
12- I wanted to be a K9 Officer for a long time, but I don’t function well in high adrenaline situations.
13- It takes a tragedy for me to be an activist.
14- My biggest platforms are water safety and drunk driving.
15- I think people who take unnecessary risks at the expense of others are scum.

Gender Reveal

While I wait for my video of this to upload I just wanted to share my thoughts. A little less than 5 years ago, the man that I love and I decided we wanted to try to have a baby.

I wasn’t so smart the first couple of months and we tried to just sabotage my birth control because it worked for so many that way. That was dumb. That’s not where I start our TTC count either. But that is when I started to think about what was going to happen. What was our baby going to look like, what would we name him/her? So many nights I would dream of what my baby would look like. So many days I’d day dream about what color we’d run out to buy. Days turned to weeks which turned to months and eventually years. We did everything we could to get pregnant and the vision of my baby was fading away. I truly never believed it was going to happen for us. There were days when I blamed myself, just knowing it could be me. Others, I blamed him. We fought and bickered and nothing seemed to help us.

When we got pregnant in February of 2010, I started to see the vision of my baby again. The hope that I’d lost was coming back. As we all know, that hope was very soon gone again. My depression sunk in and I started to give up. If that angel had not stepped in and pointed me toward the clinic I didn’t know existed, I’d probably be on deployment and losing that vision again. I don’t really know how I would have made it.

Luckily, I didn’t have to lose hope. It only took one try and I was on my way to meeting my little baby. This whole pregnancy has been nothing but joy. I can’t believe that very soon, my little baby will be here. I am going to be a mommy! I wish there were words for what I feel but when I think about how lucky I am, all I can do is cry.

This gender reveal was my way of sharing that with my family. The feeling they got from seeing the cake’s color, pales in comparison to the excitement I feel every day. I can’t believe my baby is on the way. I can’t wait to see my dreams come true.
