Been so busy!

HELLO! I want to apologize for not blogging for a couple weeks. My life has been SO busy since my mother left Kentucky. After she left I had 10 days to get all our stuff packed, house cleaned and out the house. ALONE without the husband and two kids.

January 9-11th military movers came and packed EVERYTHING. You should of seen me taking BILLION of pictures like a crazy lady. I’ve heard horror stories of these contractors stealing clothes, shoes, movies AND even PANTIES!? Like really? That’s pretty gross. I took pictures of EVERYTHING. They probably thought I was one of those crazy military wives. My good friend Amy was getting packed that day and one of her workers stole her I-phone charger! People these days.. I swear.

Well, after the movers left I had 2 days to clean the house. Psh.. I only took like 6 hours. I’m a clean ass women & I just moved into that house not even 3 months ago. So there really wasn’t any deep cleaning to do. THANK GOD 🙂

Once the cleaning was all done,  I said my farewells and hugs to everyone I could. Never did I imagine that I’d cry saying good bye to these wives. I’ve made many great friendships while I was in Kentucky. I hated Kentucky when I first moved there but it slowly grew on to me. These wives are the what made Kentucky! I’ll definitly miss every single one of these ladies and the kiddos.

These ladies right! I love them so much. We all went through deployment together & shared our lives with each other. We kept each other going when we all went through hardships during the deployment.

It’s been 5 years already?

5 years ago, I gave birth the my first born Kalilah Maria. I will never forget how much pain and stress I was going through being in labor with here for 30 hours! Not only was I scared of my future but so was my husband (boyfriend at the time.) I’m not going to lie, I was scared shit less. I had just turned 20 & my boyfriend was 18…rape I know ;p. “Will he stick around? Will we be happy? What’s our future from here? How am I going to provide for her? Will i be a great mom?” Those were the thoughts that were going through my mind..

Once I laid my eyes  on her, i knew what I had to do as a mother. All i wanted and still want to do for her is just to give her a better life than what I grew up with. And so far, I’d say we’re doing a pretty damn good job at it. Who ever knew that getting pregnant was actually a good thing? Kalilah was our strength.. we grew up fast. It was hard.. but it’s definitely worth it. She’s inspired me to do better with my life..& I’m so grateful for that.

Kalilah is such a smart little girl. She still looks like she’s 3 though lol. nothing grew on her but her hair.. I can still remember when she was crawling around the house all toothless and everything. I really miss when she was a baby.. but I also love this age. She just loves dancing and singing everywhere.

We really didn’t do anything big for her birthday but birthday/go-away lunch with some of our friends here in Kentucky. Tee, my friend, brought a cake for her.. which by the way… was delicious. We hung out with one her best friends her Jaden & Avery and had some left of cake with them. After that, we just went home and chilled out.. I plan on just celebrating her birthday with my family at home.. nothing better than spending important days with family and not blowing money. That’s all that really count.

Happy Birthday My Love. I can’t believe you are 5 already. Mommy, Daddy & sissy love you so much!Image

 

Mother Dear..

Tonight is my mom’s last day visiting us here in Kentucky. Bittersweet feeling. She came to visit for the holiday.. was here for a total of 16 day.

Growing up, my mom and I always bumped heads. I couldn’t stand her at all.. but then again.. who really got along with their parents in high school. But once I moved out the house, got married, and had children I slowly understood why she was so determined for me to do things a certain way and was so strict. I definitely appreciate everything everything she has done for me and taught me all the life lessons that would help me survive the real world.

I’m glad my mom came down to visit the girls. The two weeks of her being here has gotten both the girls really close with her. My mom is determined to make sure that my youngest daughter will know who she before we move to Korea. Which I think she did a great job at getting to know her.

The whole time my mom was here I hardly washed dishes or even cleaned the house. My mom is that typical Asian mom that cleans all day everyday. So I’m sure you can imagine my house was SPOTLESS! THANK GOD! lol Not only that, but mom’s cooking is always the best cooking. That’s one thing I’ll definitely miss when I’m in Korea. Even though she did get on my nerves here and there.. She’ll always be my mommy and I’ll always love her.

My mom leaving means 10 days more til we’re back home in San Diego baby! I’ll be spending another 2 weeks visiting other family and friends because who knows when we’ll be back in the United States. 3 years in Korea is quite a long time.. and with two kids.. pshhh that’ll be expensive as shit.

Time to spend more time with the mom before she leaves! Don’t forget to tell you mom you love and appreciate her!

 

My Phamily is my world

This last week both my girls have been sick. And of course, as a mother it hurts seeing that they are in pain and there is absolutely nothing that you can do but give them hugs and kisses. Since they’ve been sick, I’ve let them both sleep with me in bed. Which by the way has not been comfortable at all. I got the baby kicking my ribs and my older one kicking my back. Other than the sleepless night, I wouldn’t want to spend these night any other way. Waking up to my babies are definitely the best way to wake up. I love seeing Jelly ( the baby) wanting to play with Kalilah the moment she sees her. She tried so hard to wake her up lol. I’m going to enjoy this now cause who knows when them two will start screaming bloody murder and pulling each others’ hair.

Today we got to Skype with daddy. Internet connection usually sucks butthole and we can’t Skype. Connection only last roughly 30 minutes before it went to poop again. Lila and Jelly were so excited to talk/see with their daddy. I hardly even got to say a word with Lila doing most of the talking. Jelly was non stop smiling and kept saying “da da” I can’t wait to have my phamily together again.Couple more weeks ❤

2012 was great but 2013 will be even better!

2012

I can’t believe ANOTHER year has flown by. 2012 brought many wonderful memories. We were blesses with our little booger, Jelly, to our family.. Kalilah started pre-k & daddy reenlisted for another 4 years with a job that he actually loves. I ran my first 5k! Goodness.. time sure does fly!

I don’t really have any New Year’s Resolutions this year because I really suck at them. Only real resolution I’d really follow is to just make sure I let my family and friends that I love and care for them. Life is too short & I want them to know that they are my world and I very blessed to have them in my life.. So look around, appreciate and be grateful for what you have and tell your loved ones how you feel.

Happy New Years everyone!

Cheers To New Beginnings

It’s been awhile since I have had a blog. I’m not really sure what to say as of right now not because I’m speechless per say, but because I’ve consumed a whole bottle of Moscato to myself :p I’ve decided to start a blog because of my new adventures that will be coming in the new year. The countdown has began! 14 days until I clear housing and get the heck out of Fort Knox, Kentucky. Never would I have imagined that I’d actually like it here. I’ve made many GREAT friends within the last 2 1/2 year. It’s been an experience that I’ll definitely remember. Kalilah and Evangeline are growing up so fast and it’s just heartbreaking to know that my husband isn’t here as of right now. But it will be alright because on January 31st we’ll be following daddy to Korea! 3 whole years of him being home. That’s 3 birthdays, 3 Christmas’ & 3 anniversaries that we’ll be able to spend with each other. I know that sounds a little pathetic, but being a part of the “military family” that’s something we all wish for. I’m excited to share these experiences with you all & I hope you guys enjoy 🙂

Cheers to new beginnings!
