WTH is going on!!

I thought I would make a random post, so some of you ladies could get a little laugh. I will say this there is a choice of words in here that aren't the best.

I let my man into my blogging world. Yes, that is right ladies he reads your posts! I love that he likes to reads everyones post. He was looking at Amber's blog over at Goodnight Moon! reading her post about her Fupa removal and tubesock inflation. This was the start of a funny and priceless conversations. I would have gotten pictures, but we were on MSN and not skype so I didn't have that option and I was dying from laughing and I couldn't get a screen shot! Anyways enjoy!

While we were on webcam he was reading and looking at her pictures and blog made the comment:

Marine -Wow, she is skinny.
Civilian -Yeah, she is. She looks like a teenager!
This is where it all turns around.
Civilian -Ugh, I hate this-
Marine -What baby?
Civilian -I hate being skinny!-
Marine -Don't baby, Your beautiful.
Civilian -No, I am serious, I am tired of being so skinny-
Civilian -Do they have reverse liposuction?-
Marine -Um, I don't know.
You should see his face it is so puzzled at the words coming out of my mouth
Civilian -I really want it! Maybe for my graduation gift-
Marine -Ok, I guess but I like you the way you are.
Civilian -I mean I am serious! If an overly obese fatwoman wanted too I would take her fat from her.
Marine - *insert confused awkward face*
Civilian -For real baby, you know the woman that are so fat and they waddle! I want that! I want to find a obese woman somewhere and ask her if I could have some of her fat and take to surgery and take it from her.
Marine -silience *still in shock hahaha*
Civilian - I want the fattest woman you know the one with the pussy pillow and the huge muffin top and
Right there the words pussy pillow is where he lost it! His face was like along the lines of
"WTF did she really say that! WTH is going on! OMG she can't be serious! She is loosing it! Seriously though a pussy pillow oh WTH is going on!"
As soon as I caught his face I died laughing. I couldn't even finish my sentence then I had to wait.
Civilian -the fat that hangs and jiggles from her arms! Oh and cankles I want those too!
Marine - Ok, seriously stop now. I don't want that. I love you the way you are.
Civilian - Oh so you wouldn't love me if I was fat? You would just blow me off.
Marine - No baby I would, but I perfer you like you are.
Some time I amaze myself. I worry about getting fat when I have kids and getting stretch marks. Yet, I find my self fantasizing about being an obese woman! Is there any help for me!
I just want to get some weight! I want to be thicker.
So if you read this is there any way I can gain some pounds??

UGH, Yesterday was a good day. (or so I thought it was going to be)
A girlfriend of mine and I decided we were going to go and see the new movie called
"Dispicable Me"
We decided that on the way there we needed to stop at
the Wal-greens she works (use her discount) at and get me another
Preggers test. (aunt flow please show up)
This lead us to the mall a different way.
My car can't handle long stop lights or sitting still.
I completely forgot that after we were already half way there.
We are cruising along and come into the town famous for long redlights.
I am freaking out in my head.
I know she is going to over heat.
I get to the point of turning off my car at redlights.
Ah, Wham-a-lart!
I pull in for gas. I check my water and she is HOT!!
I am like GAH, we aren't going to make it to the mall with out her over heating.
We decide to soothe the car and rub her as we are trying to get out of wal-mart.
My poor car baby over heats.
We didn't even get back on the road.
We reversed out of the intersection and sit in Wham-a-larts gas station for an hour to let her cool.
She pit out rusted colored water (the beginning of electrolsis).
I filled her up with water and left for the mall.
I rubbed my dashboard and talked to her.
I made sure to comfort her that she would make it.
Well we got to the mall searching for a parking spot made her mad.
Simply because this car wanted the front parking spot by the door and sat there
while a family of 5 just got to there car.
They had to fold the stoller, put the baby in the seat, put the bags in and etc.
My car go mad and started smoking AGAIN.
So I went around this car and parked.
She was so HOT again! :/
We left and went into the mall with her smoking.
We walked the mall and watched the movie.
It was so cute.
It was after 8 when we got back to my car she sat for well over 3 hours.
I put some more water in her and got teh heck out of there.
I got on the highway and set cruise at 70 and came on home.
Well I was way over half way home and I look in my rear view mirror
nothing but white smoke pouring from my exhaust.
My hood is throwing out nothing but white smoke.
My car passed away on that highway.
I turned off cruise and realized crap I need to get across this bridge.
I laid on the gas and nothing but rattling.
RPMS didn't move along with my speedometer.
Ah, I was so mad.
I called my mom and she came to my rescue.
I had to strip my car baby like I was some kind of druggie getting money for whatever kind of drugs.
I didn't want to leave her on the side of the highway till god knows when.
I had no other choice.
I got home and told my Edward what had happened.
Had a break down cause my car baby was just sitting there and I have work to get to.
He reassured me everything was going to be ok.
He made some calls and was able to get his cousin who works for a tow truck company out of their hometown to help out.
He told Edward that he would get the car at 0200.
I stayed up until I knew my car was ok.
His cousin texted me and got me to meet him at my car he hooked her up and followed me home.
Needless to say she is home, but broken still.
That was my baby, my first car, and the only real thing I own.
When my daddy comes home I get to go shopping for a new car to replace my baby.
Awh, my heart is breaking.
R.I.P My 2001 Chrysler Sebring Sedan with a 2.7 liter engine.

It still amazes me how my Edward could be all the way in California and still take care of me as if he was home. I am so thankful that he did that for me last night. I love him and I apperciate everything he has and will do for me.

Broken Anchor --

I am upset with myself. Edward sent me a beautiful necklace he bought me at the PX on base.
Its is the EGA the anchor and countries are gold with the globe and eagle are silver.
Seriously, it looks EXACTLY like the one at the top of the page in my header.
Only difference the rope is gold on the necklace.
I was picking up my room and when I was moving stuff off of my laptop.
The necklace was on it. I was just hold it and looking at it suddenly. . .
when I turned it over the bottom half of the anchor fell off.
I have not even wore it yet.
Its so pretty. (not any more)
I am upset with myself.
I even tried fixing it.
Super glue was the first that came to mind and was in my line of vision.
I but a very small dab on the globe part, next thing I know its sliding all over the rest of the EGA.
I tried putting it on the anchor and putting it on I would hold and blow on it.
Once I thought it was dried enough I would set it down.
Nope the bottom of the anchor would fall off.
So with the result of it still being broken, I will let you see what it looks like.
I don't want to tell him face to face.
or shall I say webcam to webcam.
I guess this is kinda of my way of saying it.
"Darling, I am so sorry! I didn't mean to break it. I don't want it broken. It was all an accident. I don't want you to be upset. I tried to super glue it back together, that just ended in a diaster. I feel horrible about it. I was actually going to wear it today too. I am really really really sorry. I love you!"
Do any of yall know where I can find another one??

My picture perfect day.

Howdy, it is me AGAIN! I found out about an amazing team of two women who are putting on a give away for any USMC girlfriend/fiance/wife.
The two ladies who are co-oping this give away are (drum roll please).
Nicole, who has an amazing blog named Flip Flops and Combat Boots.
Her partner in crime is Melissa who has an Etsy Store, Perfectly Distressed, she makes wordboards and signs. (they are gorgeous)

Nicole is hosting the giveaway and Melissa is donating a beautiful hand made distressed sign for Marine couples.
This was such a wonderful thing for her to do.
I will give you a little sneak peak at what I would love to call my own. : )


If your not a Milspouse feel free to check out her store on Etsy, she has MANY of other designs and different signs.

I thought maybe I would tweak the give away a little. (I hope you don't mind Nicole)
I am going to write about the best day my Marine and I have shared, but I am going to add some inserts from him. Everything he said will be in "(parentheses)"
I will also have "*asterisks*" where I left a little comment.
That way you can see it from both views,
I think it will come out really cute. I hope you all enjoy it. : )

It all began May 29, 2010, It was kinda of a late start of a day for me considering I woke up late around 9ish. (well the day started early ass h**l for me I left base at 0400)
I was supposed to meet his basically little brother (my best friend), little sister, and their cousin aka his Ex and the mall by the airport at 1230.
*he didn't know they were coming, SURPRISE*
I left my house around 1100-ish. I was texting him NON-stop (I was on my way home and we were texting the whole time) so I could make sure everything was going to go as planned that he was going to arrive on time and that something didn't go wrong.
I finally get to the mall 1215-ish *I like to be early*. So, I start to walk the mall by myself. *hate that alone feeling*
I get a text from the surprise group at 1230-ish saying they were running LATE! *Argh, Eddie is landing at 1:30*
No later than 5 minutes I get a phone call from Eddie saying he was going to be late.
My heart DROPPED! I thought something had happened and that there was something wrong.
I tried to remain calm, turns out he only missed his flight.
*phew* (I got to DFW and my flight was waiting on a diff plane to move out of our way and then I missed my next flight to get to Houston)
Turns out everything was ok.
Everyone but I was running late, I just didn't one thing to go wrong.
*Eddie's new arrival time 1530*
*I am perfectionist* (I know she was trying to plan something but I didn’t know what so I finally started to get on the plane and I was on my way again)
I continue to walk around the mall by myself, still.
Finally, about 1345 I get a text from the surprise group to meet them by Barnes and Noble.
Sure enough I walk down there and outside they were standing.
I let them know Eddie was running late and they laughed.
*I now had people to walk the mall with*
It was so awkward to have his Ex with him that was still infatuated with him.
The awkwardness came to and end the closer it got for Eddie to be landing. It was fianlly 1445 and I decided we needed to leave to get to the airport that was 5 minutes down the road.
We get to the car and I speed over there. *bad me*
I find my way around that god for saken airport that is being reconstructed.
*They had me running all over the place to get to the first terminal*
I get to the parking garage and found a open spot after driving in circles about 8 times.
I was getting so nervous and anxious, I was shaky and checking my mirror, doing boob checks to make sure everything was in place, I kept adjusting my dress.
I wanted to look my best for him, I asked him to wear his blues home so I get that moment of pride! *not like I don't have it anyways*
OMG, there it goes, my phone its ringing. I dig through my purse panicking to find it.
*His little sister is telling me to chill out and his ex is like dramatic much?*
I get THE text, that one that says I landed!!!!!!! (I got off the plane and I was looking for a bathroom I was going to change in to my blues for her)
I was excited, no ECSTATIC!
*mind yourself, this is his first time coming home to ME, my first time to pick him up as my significant other*
He texts and ask me where I was so he could come and find me. (I was texting her and was saying I didn’t know if I was going to change but I was and I asked where she was and I started to walk that way )
I told him the end of the terminal behind the "DO NOT ENTER" sign.
So here comes the groups of people, I am standing in a line. I have his little sister to my right and the Ex to her right. I am literally SCOPING these mass crowds of people.
No, not this crowd, nope not that one either, nuh uh not that one, Ah wait is that him NO!
Ugh, I text him to see where he is and he said "Chill, I am coming" *ugh hurry up already* (I was getting a lot of people looking at me and a few ooorahs lol and then I get past the do not enter sign and I don’t see her but I can hear her yelling and I was still walking and all the way at the end of this long ass hall way)
Finally, I see him. Walking in a group of 2 or 3 people, I am squealing from excitement.
I went to take off, his little sister grabbed my arm. Apparently, they knew if they let me go as soon as I say him then I would pass the "DO NOT ENTER" sign and then all H**l would break loose.
There he is walking towards me in his blues, I fell his little sisters hand let go of me.
I take off like a bat outta you know where, I am in flip flops so all you hear is clack clack clack across the airport. Everyone is watching me run! *I was in track for 100 meter dash*
(I see her and my best friend, lil sister and her cousin and Jessica started to run not the I am glad to see you run but the I want to kill you run lol but I thought she wasn’t going to stop so I stood there and dropped my bag and got ready for her to tackle me and she slowed down at the last min)
I was finally getting to the point where I needed to slow down, I came to a some what slower pace. I grabbed him, it was like a death grip hug, it was the BEST feeling in the world.
I was shaky and crying a tiny bit. (and huged me realy tight and she couldn’t breath really good and was crying a lil )
I was trying to talk to him while trying to breathe and cry. It was really hard.
He asked who all came and here they came his little sister and his ex. (when she could talk again I asked who else came and she said my best friend did but she don’t know where he went so I found him and we talked for a lil but then we got in the car)
His best friend stayed back. I told him he had came. I was talking to Eddie and he noticed how shaky I was.
*here is how shaky I was, I couldn't hold the camera still*
We walked back to the car. Got in went to the mall so I could parade around with him on my arm. : ) (went to the mall and walked around and took some pics and I saw a Sgt. there in his blues too)

We left the mall and headed to his house so he could drop off some stuff and say hello. That was a fun/awkward ride. Him and I were singing a Keith Urban *I wanna feel the sun shine shining me and you* song to each other with his Ex in the back seat. Every time he would look in the rear view mirror her eyes would be giving him the death stare.
We got to his house he went inside said hello and gave everyone their hugs.(then we went to my house and I changed)
After that we all piled back in my car and headed to his best friend/little brothers house. ( then went to my friends house and houng out there for a while)
That was when we got to actually hold each other and be lazy on the couch.
We took bunches of pictures on that couch, wrestled with each other, and talked about stuff.
Once it got around feeding time for his horses we headed to his house. (and went back to my house and feed the horses and talked to my mom and dad then it started to get late and her mom wanted her home so we left and I was driven her moms car (and she should make a diff blog about that lol))
We fed the horses, sat around in the living room talked to his mom and dad.
My mom was texting and asking when I was going home that she didn't want it to be late. *truth is she wanted to see Eddie*
Around 8-ish we said our good-byes and headed to my house for the night.
Once we got to my house my mom was SO EXCITED to see, but no where near as happy as I was.
We sat around and talked to her and watched some T.V.
After that I wanted to spend some time alone with him.
I took him in my back yard. *I live in the country* I had a lawn chair laid out for us and country music playing.
*the good ones for tanning in*
We laid there in each other arms looking at the gorgeous Texas stars. : ) (she turnd the readio on and we were just looking up at the stars for like 30 min)
We shared and intimate moment with each other.
After that I was happy even more than before. We continued to lay there.
A song came on the radio, I liked it and I kinda wanted to two step, but I am not that great at.
I was stupid enough to make the mistake of saying something. (then a song came on that she liked and she was singing it so I said lets dance and she was like no I cant lol but I talked her in to it so we did)
He got me up and made me dance. *I loved every minute of it*
I just wish I could remember what song was playing, I was just so lost in the moment I couldn't remember.
After dancing with him Copperhead road came on and I was showing him how to do it.
I couldn't get him to do it. : /
Although, we both got a couples laughs of me doing copperhead road in my pajama's on the back porch at 2300 with dogs jumping on me.
My mom came outside to check on us and ask if we would come inside cause it was late.
I finished dancing for him and we went on inside. (her mom came out there and checked on us then went back inside and we did to after that)
We laid on the couch together and watched some more T.V. that was a perfect moment.
Him and I on the couch in our matching pajama pants in each others arms sharing kisses and laughs. (we watched some more tv and then I satyed the night and was in her bed)
We finally went to bed around 0300 only because we knew we had a long day ahead of us the next day.
I loved being able to sleep knowing he was right down the hall in my bed. *I slept with my mom*

That day was the most perfect day I could ask for. It had every emotion in it. I would relive it in a heart beat. I remember like it was yesterday. It is the one day I look back on if I have a bad day. I will never forget it, it was that truly picture perfect day for me. (and I loved that day and am going to remember it for ever)

That is my blog entry for Nicole and Melissa's Co-Op give away. I hope I win!
Thank you ladies for allowing me to share my perfect day.

'till everyone is singing --

I am BACK!!! Finally, I can blog. I feel back on track now. I am going to do a quick post catching up on what has been happening from my family to my Marine and back to the blog world.

  • Family -My grandmother was diagonsed with cancer (don't ask what type I can't remember) and went through Chemo for the first time last week. They said it would take 24-48 hours for it to kick in. Sure enough it did. She went to bathroom at 4 in the morning feeling ill and passed out in the bathroom busted her head open in two spots. I won't post pictures. I finally got two days off in a row to go and visit her. She looked abosolutely horrible, leaving me to feel so bad for her, because she has so much pride in her appearence and won't even go to church. Poor woman.
  • Marine- He is still stuck on base. He is so close to finishing school. I mean super duper close, in fact so close they had a Service Charlie inspection for pictures. Ah, I am hoping and praying I will be able to fly to base and watch him finish class.
  • Our relationship - I am proud of us to over come a whole day of barely talking and seeing each other on webcam. My webcam broke and I didn't get to see him for a couple nights. That was not fun, I broke down at MIDNIGHT and went to wal-mart to buy a new webcam, comfort food, and him a new pillow. I stopped at the gas station and bought some gas for my car. I got everything I needed in wal-mart went to the front to check out saying to myself "Oh, this should go fast there is no one here" Well to my surprise EVERYONE was checking out and only ONE check out. Finally after standing for 10 minutes on the phone with him and me about to BREAK DOWN another check out lane opened, I powered walked to that lane and got everything rung up swiped my card it told me to contact the card holder. Ugh, I just used it to get gas. I left with nothing. I got to my car hung up on him and broke down in my car in the parking lot. I was mad and missing him. I beat my steering wheel and crying, screaming WHY!! I left after I collected myself (still crying) got home and to my surprise my cam started working. Ugh, I still looked horrible and seeing him made me cry even more. Ugh. Anyways the days are starting to drag on.
  • Blogging Life - Ah, I finally hit 50 followers. I am deciding on if I want to do a give away. If I do, I need some help and advice on how to do it. Maybe a Co-Op giveaway??
  • Summer Swap - Flip-Flops and Combat Boots is hosting a Summer Essentials Swap, I signed up and my Swap Buddy is Jenn at Peace.Love.Mommy, Hey girl if your reading this E-Mail me at so we can work on this. Haha. Anyone have any ideas on what to send, I don't wanna be the loser with bad gift giving skills.
  • Now a little something for everyone - I was on the ride home and the song "If it means alot to you" by A Day To Remember, came on and I was actually listening to it and reminds me of saying "See you later" to you man no matter where he is going. I though I would share the lyrics.
Hey darling, I hope you're good tonight
And I know you don't feel right when I'm leaving
Yeah, I want it but no, I don't need it
Tell me something sweet to get me by
'Cause I can't come back home 'til they're singin'

La, la la la, la la la
'Til everyone is singin'

If you can wait 'til I get home
Then I swear to you that we can make this last
(La la la)
If you can wait 'til I get home
Then I swear come tomorrow, this will all be in our past
It might be for the best

Hey sweetie, I need you here tonight
And I know that you don't wanna be leaving
Yeah, you want it but I can't help it
I just feel complete when you're by my side
But I know you can't come home 'til they're singin'

La, la la la, la la la
'Til everyone is singin'
La, la la la, la la la

If you can wait 'til I get home
Then I swear to you that we can make this last
(La la la)
If you can wait 'til I get home
Then I swear come tomorrow, this will all be in our past
It might be for the best

You know you can't give me what I need
And even though you mean so much to me
I can wait through everything
Is this really happening?
I swear I'll never be happy again
And don't you dare say we can just be friends
I'm not some boy that you can sway
We knew it'd happen eventually

La, la la la, la la la
Now everybody's singin'
La, la la la, la la la
Now everybody's singin'
(If you can wait 'til I get home)
La, la la la, la la la
Now everybody's singin'
(Then I swear we can make this last)
La, la la la, la la la
Now everybody's singin'

If you can wait 'til I get home
Then I swear we can make this last

Crickets Chirping.

Hello, my lovely ladies. I just wanted to drop in and do a quick scattered post. I feel like a horrible blogger between working and taking care of the home front and entertaining my Marine. I am so busy. Not to mention I have nothing really to post about. I am excited that I have 46 followers. Woo, maybe a bloggy giveaway if/when I hit 50! How do those work? Help?

My mom and dad are both out of town for the week(end). My mom went to her mother's house for the WEEK! Yes, a week with out my mom around the house. Meaning, I J. Leigh, is taking on some responsibility and learning the life of a wife/mother. It is different. I have found out I need to learn to cook and experiment. I have no clue what I am going to do when I move out in a year and can't cook for my Marine and I. Any ideas on what I can do to improve that area?

As for my dad he went to Lake Rayburn for the weekend. He was home for 2 days and then he left me AGAIN! I don't like this whole home alone thing. Luckily for me, my best friend Haylee is coming over to keep me company! : )

I seem to be hearing wedding bells and making plans more often now that I have this promise ring. : ) I love it. I can't quit looking at it. If I hit a rough spot in my day, I look at it and I hear his voice telling me he loves me and that if my day is going bad just look at it and remember he loves me. It hasn't failed yet at making me smile : )

Hmm, I have nothing else really to post on.

Oh, I am a little upset that there is going to be a Texas Blog Party and I won't be able to attend. : /

. . . . . . . . . (crickets chirping)

Are you in Texas??

Leaving work at 1900 yesterday to meet my dad for dinner. He leaves me a voicemail telling me he is getting hungry and that he had a surprise with him. : D You can only imagine the things running through my head at that moment. I don't even take the time to delete the message, I immediately hung up and called my Marine.

"ARE YOU IN TEXAS??" (I had my hopes high simply because this weekend is July 4)
"No?? Babe, I am in my room. Why?"
"UGH are you serious! Dad said he had a surprise and well I thought it was you."
"No, I am sorry baby. I got to go to study group for the test tomorrow. I love you."
"Love you too baby"

So here I go Arby's uniform and all into Papa Ro's to meet my dad. I walk in and Bam, there it is a package labled to me. I look it says Zales on the outside. I didn't take my time opening it! I just wanted to see what it was.

The it was a shiny Zales ring box. I open it up and inside is a promise ring from my Marine. : )


My dad looked at me and asked "Well, where are the tears!" I knew he had bought one. We both had no idea it had been shipped to me yet. My parents knew about it, but they didn't know that I knew about it. That resulted in no tears!

He made my day so much better by finally getting this ring. I love looking at it and knowing that it shows that I really belong to someone know. No more guys hitting on me!!!

So I just wanted to know, Have you ever got a promise ring? How did you recieve it? Did you give him one back?
