Wordless Wednesday, Wee Bit Wednesday, & We Want To Know Wednesday :)

I know, I know... Maybe I'm getting a little carried away with these things... They keep me occupied a little though :) Thats a good thing, right? Don't forget to go link up if you decide to join in!!

1. If money didn't matter, where would your perfect vacation take place? Briefly describe?
Although I absolutley LOVE the beach, it wouldn't necassirily be my top choice anymore. I mean, after living in Hawaii, its a bit difficult to top that. My perfect vacation spot would be overseas somewhere, almost anywhere. Perhaps Italy or Brazil. A place with a completely different culture to make for a wonderful experience :)

2. What's a bad habit that you have or had that is/was hard to break?

My major not-so-good habit is cokes/caffeine. I used to be able to stop drinking them without a problem before but since I discovered I was pregnant, the cravings for them are ENDLESS, making it next to impossible to just cut them out of my diet.

3. If you weren't on a diet or counting calories, what would you have for dinner tonight?

Ok. Who's counting calories? I couldn't be on a diet even if I tried (& of course, wasn't pregnant). & the answer would have to be Mexican. mmm. I could go for some enchaladas right about now.

4. If you had the chance to interview anyone in the world, dead or alive, who would it be & what's one question that you would ask?

Marilyn Monroe. I've always been fascinated with her, not sure exactly why. I'd have to ask just simpy what it was like to live that type of life.

5. Describe yourself in 6 words.

shy, sarcastic, boring (lol), aggressive, sensitive, loving :)

Weebit Wednesdays @

{one} When was the last time you used a pay phone, if ever?

Wow. Possibly before I turned 16? I haven't a clue.

{two} Did you ever fail a subject in school?

Geometry. By 2 points. I blame it on the teacher, though. I mean, doesn't it mean something when 5 or more students fail the same class by the same teacher? I re-took it with a different teacher & passed with at B+... smh.

{three} Where do you go to get your favorite hamburgers?

Steak & Shake. Ever since last summer & my issue with kidney stones (ick), I haven't been able to even go near a hamburger, for whatever reason. Buuuut, here lately I've been having some luck. & Steak & Shake is AMAZING, to me at least lol.

{four} Have you ever served jury duty?

Nope, never, thank the Lord.

{five} How old were you when you moved out of your parents' house?

18. Right after graduation. Haven't been back since.

{six} What is your favorite color to wear?

Pink. I can be a girlie-type girl, what can I say?

{seven} Do you have a pair of shoes that you wear all of the time?

Last winter, it was a pair of clogs from American Eagle. I wore those suckers out. Ever since the move to Hawaii, its been these little cheap Old Navy flip flops. I'm in love with them lol.

{eight} Do you enjoy talk radio?

I can't really say I enjoy it. While there's a show or two I don't mind listening to, they usually put me to sleep. Radio to me means music, not talking.

{nine} If you could turn one unhealthy food into a healthy one, what would it be?

Easy. Mexican. My FAAAVVVEE.

{ten} Who is the best speaker you've ever heard in person?

Hmm... I usually refrain from public speakers. I get bored way to easy.

Wordless Wednesday -- not sure who to link up to this with, if anybody knows, inform me :)

The devastating flooding in my hometown.

30 day challenge :)

~~ Day 9 ~~

Post A Picture Of Your Favorite Thing You Or Your SO Has Made And Tell What It Is.

On occasion, I'll get in the mood to put stuff together & make something yummie. This was absolutley the most delicious thing I have ever made (along with the help of my wonderful bestie, of course). Anything with strawberries as the main ingredient, I'm usually partial to. The hubs has yet to try it. Unfortunitley, I can't package it up & send it overseas to him, but I'm sure once he does get to try it, he will be in love lol.

some people call me the space cowboy, some call me the gangster of love...

I think there needs to be a book, like Pregnancy for Dummies, that clearly maps out every single type of pain you can get when you are pregnant, where you get them, what they feel like, and what to be worried about. And if such a book does exist, I seriously need to be made aware of its title. I'm a worrier to begin with. First time mom's are supposed to be the worst at worrying because they do not know what to expect. Add the two together & what do you get? A frantic girl that freaks out at anything. Last night, I was experiencing what I thought was contractions or some sort of uterus pain. I was fine with it -- I know your body goes through a crap ton of changes when you are pregnant. However, the pain began to be piercing, to the point where it would literally take my breath away. 2:30 am, no one to ask, calling my doctor would have done me no good (typically, on a WORK day, it takes a good 2 hours to get a call back... off hours? haha. no telling how long it would have taken...) I had no clue what to do. I hate that feeling of just not knowing. Luckily, they relaxed a bit and I was able to sleep. After speaking with some friends today, I believe I was having round ligament pains. Yeah, something that would have been nice to know about prior to my panicking lol. At least all is good tho, and mr. munchkin is staying put for the time being.
I've been really melancholy for such a great week I've been having. The news I read over earlier today didn't make things too much better. We lost our very first soldier from this deployment a few days ago. 22 years old, the same age as me. Just starting his life. It breaks my heart. Do not get me wrong, anytime I hear about anything happening to any of our guys over there, there is a major tug at my heart, but I don't know, it was just a little different when it hits that close to home... RIP Sgt. White.
On a different note, it appears another week has been added to the time until I can move into this apartment. My patience is fading, quite fast actually. Leasing companies really tick me off. I am well aware that some things simply do not go according to plan & thats understandable, but when you post & say without hesitation that a place is available on one date, please make sure that is accurate. Don't go changing it two or three times. Just state in the beginning that you aren't entirely sure. It really isn't that hard. I'm just so ready to be in my own place already!!
Oh, and I mentioned that this little town was quite difficult when it came to hiring a little prego such as myself, well, I will gladly eat those words... Its looking like I am going to be rehired by my previous place of employment. Yes, the very one I used to complain about ALL of the time lol. I'm actually quite excited. It is a different store, a much calmer store therefore my stress level should be kept at a minimum. But its a job! I'm so tired of sitting on my butt with nothing to do. I absolutley cannot wait!!
Sugarland concert tomorrow night :) There is something about that woman's voice that gets me everytime!! I'm hoping for a wonderful night!! Very excited. I'll upload pictures & all of that goodness..
Well, that pretty well sums the past little bit up for me :) Have a good day everyone!!
