See if you have been tagged --

I have been out of the blogging world for far too long! I am going to jump right back into it. : )

Since I have been gone a game of what seems to be like Question Tag has been going around. Needless to say I have been tagged by a wonderful lady who is married to a Marine and goes by the name of Kaylee over at Devil Dog Darling. She has an amazing blog, last I read her anniversary is coming up and she needs some help, so why don't you head one over there and see if you can't give her a hand.

Since I have been gone I have no background on this game of tag, all I know is: I have been tagged, I am too answer the 8 questions Kaylee has boiled up, and then find 8 fellow bloggers to pass 8 of my own questions on too.

Kaylee's 8 questions :

1. What is your favorite thing about being a woman?
I would say that my favorite thing about being a woman is getting up in the morning and picking out an outfit to wear, doing my hair, and putting on make-up to make myself feel pretty. I love being about to look pretty and primping myself. Oh, another thing, I know it hasn't happened yet and won't for a while, but concieving a child. The mircle of life I hold.

2. Do you like rainy days or snowy wintery days more?
I would have to choose snowy wintery days. Building a fire in the fire place, moving the couch closer to it, cuddling up on the couch in blankets, sipping on hot chocolate and watching a movie with my love. Gosh, Christmas needs to hurry up. : )

3. What's your favorite book and why?
My favorite book would have to be "Where the Red Fern Grows". It was a very sad book and had many lesson in it. It showed the true connection between a boy and a dog.

4. What is the first thing you notice about people when you meet them?
I would say their smile and eyes. Those are the first to things I pick up on. You can tell alot about people from their eyes and smiles.

5. Would you rather take pictures or be in pictures?
I like taking pictures, but I love being in the pictures. I love to look back on a picture and knowing the whole story behind it and why I was in it.

6. If your could own a non-traditional pet, what would it be, any one in the world?
A zebra, I just imagine a zebra having a great personality. Just like the zebra from Madagascar. I saw a zebra at a county fair this past weekend, it smiled for me. I wish I got a picture of it.

7. Can you change a tire on your car? Have you ever?
I have never changed the tire on my car nor do I know how too. I did one time have a flat and a guy in the Army stopped and helped my mom and I. He was about to deploy.

8. If you could give anyone any gift in the world to whom would it go and what would it be?
I would give a child that was less fortunate than I the gift of hope and love. I would adopt a child and let them know what it is like to be loved unconditionally and have some one believe in them.

Kaylee you had some great questions, time to see if I can come up with 8 of my own.

  1. If you could be any color crayon in the world what color would you choose and why?
  2. What started your blog?
  3. Which year of you life do you think was the best?
  4. If you could change the name of your kid(s) *if you have any* what would it be and why? or if your could change the name of your pet?
  5. What is your favorite disney character or your childs favorite one?
  6. Do you prefer the city or country life?
  7. What your favorite thing about fall?
  8. Do you ever find your self secretly wanting to play your man's video games?

Now for the 8 lucky bloggers that get to answer my questions:

  1. Nicole
  2. Mrs. G.I. Joe
  3. Cris
  4. Mrs. Muffins
  5. Amber
  6. Mrs. Gambizzle
  7. Lauren
  8. Brandi

I am looking forward to reading the answers to my questions. Every one have a great night.

Relationship Break *MUST READ* --

In my previous post, I stated I was on a break in my relationship with my Marine.

We were in a rut for about 3 weeks. It was really rough on me. I never thought it would have taken the toll on me that it did. I was stressed, so stressed. It caused me to be emotional, not sleep or eat right. I was loosing him it felt like and I was going crazy. I didn't want to loose him. I wanted to take a break to become a little less stressed and have some time to myself.

I told him I was going to go with out talking to him. I had to repeat it to myself. I continued to you talk to him the rest of the night. To my surprise I woke up the next morning telling myself over and over and over not to talk to him. I just couldn't do it. I broke and called him to wake him up for PT. We talked for a few minutes. Need less to say my feeling for him where entirely too strong for me to not talk to him. I love him too much to go with out talking to him. I did try and not talk to him for a night. I didn't sleep right at all. I can't stand my ground with him. I had to talk to him.

Things between us were very quite not much was said, not many laughs were shared. It was driving me crazy. He got one of his room mates to talk to me it gave me a wake up call. I finally realized what I needed to do. I fixed my priority list and made sure I was ok with everything. I then talked to him and had a conversation about everything going on. He understood.

After we talked and discussed everythign going on. We started to make progress in our relationship. We are back to normal finally after about 3 weeks. I came to realize that I love him and would do anything for him. My feelings for him are stronger than they are for any other of the guys in my past. I am so lucky to have found him. He is truly the man of my dreams.

To make this post even better Imma add this in.

BIG ANNOUNCEMENT: (drum roll please) I am now engaged to my Marine. We are one of the happiest couples. Right now, we don't want our families to know. We are waiting till after Easter to tell them. So now with out further adue, I will let you all know how he asked.

"Baby, I love you, you are my world. I want you to be my wife and the mother of our ...kids.... I love you Jessica Leigh King. I want you to be my wife, will you marry me? [] yes [] no".

My response: "☑ Yes, Edward, you know I will proudly be your fiance. I love you and no matter what I do I will never be able to prove it too you."

Him and I have made such great progress in our relationship. It has been like we were already engaged before, between our joint bank account and our house being remodeled for us. I am truly happy that he asked. I never wanted anything more than what he has offered to me.

This is nothing to be rushed. We both agreed to a long engagement of no earlier than a year and a half. I am happy for this, now instead of just jumping and running away from our problems I will now have to work at this relationship. I am excited to be taking this step forward.

I can't wait till he comes home as my Fiance instead of my boyfriend. I am so happy right now.

Reality Hits --

I have been out of the blogging world for about 4 weeks now. That is way too long, so I won't fill you with everything that has went on in that time frame. I will give you the shortest version as possible. I am hoping to getting around to doing a post for each thing I list (incentive to keep it short).

Being home alone
Break in the relationship with my Marine

That is pretty much everything that has been going on. Now off to post about each individually.

I also I have dropped in and have been reading blogs occasionally, I will be completely honest. I do not plan to go back and read every blog I have missed, nor do I plan to comment on them.
