thursday 1st survey!

Hey all! I haven't had too much to post about lately so I've been slackin' on the postin'. I saw this lil survey on the lovely Brittney's blog and decided to do it for lack of anything interesting going on in our lives right now...

8. Do you live on base?
-nope... we might one of these days, but not now.
9. What is your favorite base so far?
- well I liked the base in fla b/c it was close to fam/friends/fsu.. but he was in Afghanistan most of the time so I am definitely liking California a lot since he's not deploying!

14. Do you prefer Walmart or the BX/PX/NEX/MCX?
- oh definitely BX/PX! i just kinda hate wal mart. 
15. How did your husband propose? 
- aw. he is so cute. We had only been dating 8 months (but I knew I wanted to marry him.. like.. when my friend showed me a picture of him before i met him. haha) it was just a couple of days before he went to Afghanistan. He got us this really nice condo on the beach for the weekend and everything was so perfect but, naturally, I was sad to say goodbye at the end of the weekend.  On the last day there we went on this super (I mean  MILES & MILES) long walk where he FINALLY got on one knee and asked if I would marry him.  this is totally abbreviated. one day I will write the whole story out. it was so great. one of my favorite days of my life! (rivals with my wedding)
16. Did you marry him after he joined or before?
-after! he had already been in for 2 years before I met him

riding around town and a little update

hi all! wanted to share a little of this past weekend in pictures... well just saturday because i worked all friday and sunday. and just my luck that we've had the most glorious weather for about a week EXCEPT the one day I have off work. but we still got to ride around town alllll day long :) :)
first stop, the park! ughh looking at this thing makes me queasy

husband. recently dubbed "low maintenance Ed" by one of his friends.  cargo shorts from 1999(?), $10 velcro shoes. can't do anything with that boy. :)

we found this secret place on top of a hill, overlooking the wharf 

down by the bay, down by the bayyy

self timed portraits made for lots of laughs 
like this....??

haha and this. getting ready to attack
this is me being concerned about man down. 

i think someone is still upset about their fall
my ups....

that. just. happened. 

I'm not even mad

i love my bikeee

we biked over to this lovely families house for some bball action. how cute are those lil lady's baby jeggings??

BRUTUS!!! the guard dog!!
and this lil sweetie is turning the big ONE this week :)

going to shop for the bday girl and then go get my hair did!! yayy! and we are going to try to make it to the farmers market when E gets home from work. 

I already got my workout in this morning and am challenging myself to work out at least 4 days a week until July then going to continue or move it down to 3. hopefully i will be so used to my 4 days i will keep that up but I'm slowly setting goals for myself. and posting it here will (hopefully) keep me motivated!  It seems like since I started working i forgot how to balance everything. so I am finally getting back on top of my emails, blogging, blog reading, working out and those fun chores like laundry and dishes! 

ok, gotta finish that lonnnng list that is called my Tuesday! happy week everyone
