I haven't been on here in a loooong time. Let me see if I can recap.
June 4th - June 23rd
Well we returned home late Friday night. We ended up having to stay an extra week due to one small thing. It's really funny. Get this! We're driving down the interstate after some fun in Springfield. We hit about 70mph and our rear tire and rim came off the Tahoe. NICE! No one else was involved in our little incident.
One thing this trip taught us, DO NOT EVER TRAVEL TO ILLINOIS WITH THE TAHOE AGAIN!!!! The last time we drove up there we hit a large deer, on the interstate, and it rolled down the side of the car. Fun fun!
I think someone fucked with our Tahoe while in Springfield. Nothing was wrong the entire drive there. Then as we were leaving Best Buy that's when things went wrong. I'm guessing it was done by someone who isn't too fond of people in the military. (We have Marine Corps plates on the Tahoe and a sticker.)
We found out that we're having a girl! WOO HOO! I've bought a bunch of cute little girl clothes. I'm so excited. Steve bought a new gun, a rifle, a few days later. He said he's going to teach Jaylin how to shoot and he's going to start him up in karate or something. He said he needs to protect his little sister. He even said, "I may hold him back a year in school so that they're in high school for a short time together. That, or we'll home school." LOL Already becoming over protective. He even wants me to plan out the "sex talk" that I'll have with her when she gets older. HAHA!
We traded in the Tahoe and got a 2003 Chevy Suburban Z71. It's so badass. I love it! We were trying to get a vehicle to help save on gas.....that didn't work. I noticed a loose tooth on Jaylin this day. (The bottom middle.) It fell out on the 2nd. He swallowed it. :(**** The tooth next to it is loose now. I don't think it's going to fall out for at least a couple of weeks.
Hmmm, we just found out a few days ago that we're most likely going to be stationed in New Orleans. I'm not very happy about it.....at all! But, it was there or Colorado and who wants to live there. OH! Steve got promoted to SSgt on the 8th. There back paying us to June since he was supposed to be promoted then. I'm so proud of him!
I'll post pics of my ultrasound and the car the next time I get the chance.

As of April 7, 2006 I have not had a single cigarette. YAY! I did it cold turkey. Really not to hard considering I'm pregnant, suffering from morning sickness and really can't stomach one anyway.
I was tested this weekend though. Romeo (my brother), Bri and baby Romeo came to visit. They both smoke and were not helpful at all. They kept offering me cigs and seeing them smoke was driving me nuts. But I must say, now that I've quit, I could really smell the smoke on them. It made me sick. Steve said I never smelled like smoke. I think that's do to the fact that I hated smoke coming toward me so I always smoked in a special way.
It does get hard at times like right after a big meal. That's the worst. Oh well, so far so good!
Friday Steve & Romeo got very very drunk. It was quite boring for myself and Bri though. Two prego women around 2 drunk men is sooo dull. Well, one thing led to another and my brother ended up with a mohawk. Nothing good ever happens after 2am. HAHA!
We went to DC for a little while and snapped a few photos. It was exactly beautiful out so we went home. I did find some killer parking directly in front of the Washington Monument. SWEEEET!
I've come to the sad/painful/terrible conclusion that I have to adopt out my 4 beardies. I'll most likely not be home or either up stairs hiding. I don't need someone to see me cry like a little baby. Watching my two males leave will be the hardest. I've had them since they were tiny little babies. Over 2 years now I've had them.
This decision is based on the fact that I'm going to have another child at the end of the year. We will most likely move into base housing since Steve is going to take PCS orders. It's just that we won't have a lot of room for 2 adults, 2 children, 4 bearded dragons (females in a 50 gallon breeder & the males are in a 100 gallon tank) & a parrot. That and with the new baby, I won't have a lot of free time to care for everyone. So because of this, I'm worried about Gilligan. I'll be spending a lot of time with the new baby and he'll get lonely. It shouldn't be too bad though. I can at least let him out of his cage to play. One good thing is that he doesn't mind spending time in his cage.
I really want to be selfish and keep my beardies, but I have to do what is best for them. *cries*
Oh, I'm sooo excited. I've had the book for over a year and finally started reading it on Saturday. I'm half way through it already. I just love it. Oh yeah, the book. :p
It will be out in June this year. I can't wait! I picked up the second book, 'Eldest', in the trilogy which I'll most likely start reading this weekend. The third, 'Empire', won't be out until fall of this year.
Oh happy day.

We got to our resort at about 3pm on Monday. Boy, that was a rough drive. I was still feeling crappy so Steve drove the entire way. He's such a sweetie pie. The resort was gorgeous! They had all kinds of shopping and restaurants there. Our room faced the Mickey Mouse shaped pool. The 2 PGA golf courses that were surrounding it was GORGEOUS! Steve was kicking himself for not bringing his clubs. He could have played on a PGA course for $10. HAHA!
Well, here we go. We went to:( Entire story hereCollapse )
WOO HOO! I've never ever been there before. This should be loads of fun! We're staying at a resort from the 20th to the 24th. It's on a PGA golf course. At first Steve said he wasn't going to bring his clubs....he's changed his mind. :p
We're getting into Sea World and Universal Studios for free so that's cool. (One day free at SW for military and Steve's friend works at Universal.)
We're going to go to the Animal Kingdom and go on the safari ride. I can't wait for that one!
In other news.
My mom is doing grand. Her hair is starting to grow back. :D She's got about 16 radiation treatments left and then she's done.
Well, hubby calls and says, "What do you say we go out and eat at Sakura tonight. I agreed because I totally love that place. I asked him if it was just going to be the 3 of us and he said yes. Then, he started to question me.
Him: Honey, what month is this?
Me: ummm, February
Him: What day is it?
Me: Oh come on! I know it's Wednesday!
Him: No sweetie, what date?
Me: The 22nd. Oooo, that stuff you ordered on Ebay is coming in today.
Him: Yeah, but what else is happening today?
Me: OMG! Happy Anniversary honey!
Him: Happy Anniversary baby!
Yeah, from this point I started laughing and he started laughing. I totally forgot today was our 4 Year Anniversary! :D
He said I'm the only woman in the world that doesn't remember things like this.
What can I say, I take after my mom.

My little baby Gilligan, the Sun Conure, turned 1 year old on February 1st!!!!
I feel so bad too....I forgot. :( (My mom's been sick, breast cancer, and I've devoted all my time to her.)
