Good Things Come To Those Who Buy...

And this is what I want to buy! R and I test drove this little beauty on Monday and fell in love. Its so cute! Reminds me of a cross between a Volkswagon bug and a milk truck...Lol! I'm sure a lot of you have seen the boxier versions of these running around everywhere...Well this is Scions newest model of the XB and I dig it! Did you know that Scion (is)Toyota???

We are looking into trading our vehicles soon. He, for another Toyota Tacoma but with a double cab this time *after all, he has a wife and a dog to tote around now* and me, my Hyundai Sonata for this!!! Best part is, I'll finally be able to get back into a stick shift:) Couldn't you see me driving around in this little guy, all but drag racing, becuase I feel so cute and small and speedy??? Lol...In all honestly, we are slowly preparing for the future of one day having a family+ a dog to lug around. Cross your fingers that this all works out and we both have new cars in a month or two! Most of this is depending on whether he sells his bike, resulting in one less loan!...Any of you ladies have a husbands or boyfriends that would be a taker! lol:) No, but seriously?

In other breaking news: Only five more days until this!

The waiting is killing us! But it'll be worth the wait, once we get there and can relax in that nice warm bubbly tub:) Also, there might be a chance that I'll get to meet up with another bloggy buddy during our stay! A lot of you know her as Crazy Shananigans...I'll be sure to take pictures and post all about our mountain adventure:) Also, stay tuned for an important announcement! This is something I've been working on for a week and the pieces are finally coming together. Tomorrow will be the final word, so pray that I hear good things!

Missing: Brilliant Title...

A lot happening in this little part of my world! Last week, bright and early, I drove the six hours back to my hometown, spending five wonderful and much needed days with family. There I got to meet my families newest bundle of joy...I know I might be bias, being her proud aunt and all, but no...She is the most beautiful thing! Take a look and tell me you don't agree!?!?

Looking at how precious she is!!! And all those adorable milk bubbles shes sporting??? What a cutie pie:) Almost makes me want to have one earlier then planned...Almost:)

During that same week, hand over heart, R stood in front of his company commander pledging another six years to this country he serves and to the Army...Sadly, I was not able to make his re-enlistment, but was happy to hear that his 1st. Sgt. and fellow drills did, looking head on with big smiles:) Kind of like this one, I'm guessing?

Did you know that you, as a spouse, gets a certificate of appreciation?? I actually think that's neat...What do I think is even cooler??? The fact that we got to list three of our choice picks for future duty stations! The first pick was Germany, of course, then Hawaii and Colorado. I would be happy with either one, but could really get excited over three years in Europe...Who wouldn't! I get super jazzed when I see change of scenery in my near future (12 months to be exact)...What better life, then the military, to support my habit of travel;)

Approximately two weeks ago my sister M asked me a question that I can't really talk about just yet, but if all goes as we hope, I will be one happy girl by the time July rolls around!

R and I have decided to move out of our cozy one bedroom apartment and into a house! He needs a garage for all his toys and I need a backyard for my puppy...I recently helped move a friend last month into a beautiful 3 bedroom, 2 bath home and was so taken with the idea of having a place like that of our own...Don't get me wrong, the place we live now it great and I've loved spending our first year married here...But its time...

R graduated his last cycle of soldiers on Friday and now has a three month break! Easter week, we are taking advantage of this time, and going to Gatlinburg, TN, for 4 nights, spending every morning and evening here:

That's right! Our very own secluded cabin, deep in the heart of Tennessee's beautiful Smokey Mountains...They call it "Chasing Moonbeams." I think the name is what sold me;) This is a much needed break for us both and I cannot wait to be sitting on that wood chair, feet propped up, drinking a piping hot cup'o' joe...

There's yet another big change coming my way, however, I'm choosing to sit on it for another few days...But for now I will leave you with this...My latest obsession! Verizon's Droid Eris...
We are resigning in April, so I need to make a decision on want phone I want to be stuck with for the next two years...My biggest complaint is its all touch...But I've been playing with this phone on my lunch breaks (I work at a mall) for the past two weeks and I love it!!! I seriously could see myself never putting it down...Could be a bad thing?!?!

Have a great Tuesday y'all!! I'm off to pay some attention to my google reader:)

I've Been Blog Cleaning!

To kick off the season of change, I decided my little blogg-ity blog could use a spring cleaning, so check it out! I have to thank the very talented Brittney over at Arteestic. I could never have create something this genius on my own, nor will I ever be able to...Brittney is the sweetest gal to work with and so prompt! I swear, she had my first preview to me on the dot, at 9 o'clock, just like she had said...That was even WITH a time difference...I'm convinced, she had to of had her finger hovering over that send button; Only explanation! Not only did she whip up the perfect design, but she did it in as little as three days! I always hate telling people what I want because, deep down, I don't really know! She asked me to email a small piece about myself, which I might have sent her a book or two because I'm that interesting....Snort what colors I enjoy and
* insert sound of tinkling stars here* Voila! The birth of my new look:) That simple! Ladies, this process was very painless and so pleasant... Not to mention, easy on the pocket book *wow* so go check her out and tell her I sent you! No, I do not get a discount for referrals...If that were the case and with her rates, the design would have been free!
