Hello readers!


I know it's been awhile since I've posted here. I actually moved the blog here!

So please check out the new link, it's semi anonymous for now, which is kinda hard to maintain lol.


I will still be logging on to this account to read all of your wonderful blogs! :)

Switching phone plans.

We're planning on switching from Verizon to Sprint. The reason being, we're paying about $130 a month for Verizon with basic phones. I have a Razr and he has a first generation Chocolate phone, it just doesnt make sense for us to pay so much money for basic phone service.

We found that Sprint released a new family plan that's about the same amount but it includes a full data plan. Meaning you get Sprint TV, Navigation, Internet, Texting, and 1700 minutes (but just for land lines, all phone calls to any mobile phone no matter the provider is free). As well as Martin's Sprint account has a special discount on it that would bring our bill down to $100. $100 a month for full data?! HELL YES!

The reason why his bill has a special discount (and is the most discount you can get from Sprint) is because he registered for his air card during a promotion deal assuming the the promotion would go towards the air card, but it didnt. It was only for phone lines. So they held the promotional price for him in case he ever decided to switch to Sprint. Nice move Sprint!

With that said, I have my heart set on the Palm Pixi. My Verizon upgrade is due next month so I thought I'd be able to cancel next month since last time I upgraded was in 2007 for my Blackberry Pearl. But turns out, my contract wont be up til June. The good news is, my cancellation fee today would be $80. Which beats $175 that Cingular charged us. But that's only because my contract end date is coming up. Martin's contract wont be up until 2011, so his cancellation fee is about $175 or $180. Which sucks.

Now, I assumed that I would get my phone next month. My Razr is on its 4th charger and 2nd battery. But Martin's telling me that if I get a job by next month I'll be able to get my phone *insert fuming face here*. WHAT?! I understand that maybe jumping to get my phone right now would be a bad idea, but hey, you told me I get a new phone in February! I tried to talk him into letting me get my phone and when that didnt work I went into spoiled brat mode. Which he handled calmly, the same way he always does. How does he not give in?! How does he just smile at me every time I throw tantrums because I dont get what I want?! Grrrr.

I understand his point of view, but I'm just itching to get a brand new phone already! I went yesterday to see my phone at Sprint since I was deciding between the Palm Pixi or the Samsung Moment. And I fell in love with the Palm Pixi! It has REAL web browsing, FREE apps (including Pandora, Flickr, Facebook, etc), 360 screen rotating, an awesome phone, its sleek and small and its just amazing. God, I want that phone!

Being married is so difficult when you're broke and you want things, this "team work" stuff is going to take some getting use to.

Why yes, someday I WILL get a dSLR.

A common argument me and Martin have had for about a year or so is when I'll get a dSLR. I was able to get a Canon PowerShot SX10IS when it was first released (a year or two ago? I dont remember) and according to him, the sooner I learn how to use it, the faster I'll get a dSLR.

My husband is the type that for one, takes forever to make a simple decision when it comes to a huge purchase. Which I suppose at times is good, but when I say forever I mean he'll literally take months to come to a decision. So of course he's going to tell me to learn how to use my new camera before deciding if I get to get a dSLR.

Okay, I agree, buying a dSLR isnt like buying another point and shoot. It's a pretty huge step, not only is the camera expensive but the lenses cost either as much as or double the price of the camera itself. This fact does not work in my favor as far as my itch to buy one!

I admit, I havent been playing with my camera as much as I should. I still dont know how to change the shutter speed to what I want it to be. And I admit, the SX10IS itself seems pretty huge for me so how much more if I have a dSLR? I already dont like carrying around a simple SX, and I really think I'll carry around a dSLR? Probably not, at least, not right now. I like how simple and sleek my Canon PowerShot SD780IS is and how I can easily fit it in my pocket and carry it around with me like its a cell phone. Hmph. Is it bad that I hope they come out with a dSLR that's just as small and sleek? I know, that's unrealistic.

But I do hope to get my hands on one soon. I've been taking photography more and more seriously as the years pass. I love taking pictures. I love catching the simple things in life that make it worthwhile. I love catching what today was all about in just one picture. I love the art behind it. And my dear husband does realize how I feel about photography but he doesnt think I'm ready, *sigh*. I suppose I agree with that.

I just hate having this same argument with him all the time. One day I will be ready. And one day I will come home with a dSLR and he's just gonna have to deal with it! Haha.


Is it just me or are men born without the ability to be unlazy? Maybe saying he's lazy is a bit harsh. Okay, well here. How about this.

Normally, I'm the one who has to set out dates on when we're going to pay the bills. Thankfully, all of our bills are due around the same time. Come the day before you have to pay the bills, you usually come up with some sort of battle plan. How much you're going to pay between all the bills, what the minimum payments are, list the places you go (if you pay at a store) so you dont miss anything. Now, I can do this myself even if the bills arent sent to my house (which they arent), thank goodness for online banking. But rather than having to log into every single account, wouldnt it just be easier for the husband to pull out the bills (which are probably in arms reach of him as I type) and kindly tell me the due dates along with the minimum payment? Obviously, I'm not going to ask him for this information considering he's at home playing video games right now. Pffft.

Sometimes I cant help but wonder if there are any men out there that successfully handle their own bills completely on their own without a woman's help.

Let me scroll through my mental list of men I know...


Okay maybe that was a bit harsh too, I'm sure at least a few guys I know do handle their own bills on their complete own, but its just so hard for me to imagine that to be true! I'm thinking I should start sending the bill statements to my house, that way I can be within an arm's reach of the bills and none of them will get lost in who-knows-where.

Oh the every monthly struggles of bills and a husband. As if bills alone werent enough!

We're married... now what?

It's 4:25AM and I know I still havent written about wedding day and right now isnt the right time to either. But I will get around to it!

It's so odd to think we're married. I always describe it as foreplay, you spend all that time trying to work your way up to a climax and when you do, what happens next? You fall asleep. I always felt like marriage was that climax, after that... really what is there left to look forward to? I dont think its really hit us just yet that we're actually, legally, married. We dont live together (I know, shocking but that's a whole different entry on its own) and I havent filed the paper work to change my last name yet (that list to get through is awfully long), and I know I should soon. One of my fellow bloggers mentioned she hasnt finished changing her last name on everything just yet, so what happens if only half of your stuff is changed? Is there some sort of penalty for that somewhere? Having everything joined is so odd. I mean, when we were a couple of course things were joined but now that we're married, it just feels... different. Like we really have to consult each other before making some "huge" decision. Its just weird.

And now that we're married, what exactly do we do next?

I had the perfect example for this question while I was pooping (TMI? Sorry, but I'm a blunt person and just so you know now... most of my best blogs come during the time I'm either pooping or taking a shower. No lies)! And now that its been a few hours the most epic question I've had since being married has slipped away from me. Darn. Or maybe I'm just sleepy, after all, it is 4:30AM.

Maybe I should head to bed and try this again in the morning. Yeah, sounds good. He's actually sleeping in my dad's room right now, its just odd. That too is a totally different entry on its own!

Goodbye 2009!

Another year has flown passed me and it still freaks me out how fast time is flying. 2009 wasnt bad but it wasnt great either. But it has been the best in the last few years :)

The friends I hung out with in 2008 were pretty non existent in 2009. Martin and I didnt have one huge fight in 2009 :) we've been doing great and that's a pretty good accomplishment lol. I started my paid blogging and I was rejected and accepted by lots of companies. I hit over 100 subscribers on youtube. I made a bunch of really really great friends over youtube and blogger. I got to go to Disneyland for my birthday (even though I missed Blue Bayou thanks to a stupid migraine). I discovered Wicked (and got to see it twice). I networked with my favorite makeup company through Twitter. I found a friendship with my favorite Wicked musical actor. I got to see the 70th anniversary of Wizard of Oz in theaters. I got my first CT Scan, which was gross and scary but something I had to do. My best friend became my fiance. I got a taste of the military spouse life and let me tell you... it wasnt so sweet. But I think it did amazing things to our relationship and it was an incredible experience for both of us. I got a nice reality slap of how much he really does care about me. I discovered how amazing and caring my sister is even if she was a total pain when she was younger. I planned an ENTIRE wedding in two months, I think that's a huge accomplishment in itself! I discovered Glee! I became more of myself (meaning I spent more money on books and less money on makeup). I realized that my parents arent always against me and how much they care. My mom bought me a hamster (which is so odd since she gets mad when I bring home hamsters, but since Martin was gone I guess she figured I needed the company which I am so thankful for). My dad insisted on helping me pay for my wedding :). I watched more movies this year than I did any other year. I had the best Christmas ever! I GOT MARRIED to my bestest friend. I got to fulfill my 8 year dream of eating at Serendipity. I got to see Las Vegas during the holidays. I got to see my amazing cousin for two days straight :). I got to spend New Years Eve with my husband who helped me put together my traditional 12 round fruits, jump up and down with coins and gave me the most loving kiss at midnight.

Not much con's of 2009 are coming to mind, that's pretty amazing. Besides not having a job all year (by choice, so that's not really a con), getting more in debt and not being able to clean out my room... I have nothing bad to say about 2009. For the most part, I've been happy this passed year. What more could you ask for?

I dont really have any resolutions for this year, at least nothing huge and big. The usual...

- Eat at 5 new restaurants
- Disneyland for our honeymoon!
- Get rid of half of my debt
- Learn how to use my camera right
- Learn WordPress/CSS
- Listen to more music!
- Study Wicca
- Prepare to enlist into the USAF

And of course, to be a good wife. I am so lucky to have an amazing best friend and husband by my side. Who's never given up on me no matter how stubborn, bratty, grumpy I am and no matter how much I dont listen. He never gets mad at me, he never blames me, he never screams at me. I wish I could be as good to him as he is to me (which is so hard because I'm super selfish, grr). I still cant believe I GOT MARRIED! I still cant believe that I'm a WIFE. I'm not his girlfriend anymore, I'm his WIFE. Nothing has changed, it doesnt feel different at all... but just knowing the title changed and I added one more ring to my finger is just... still hard to believe. I dont think it's fully hit the both of us yet.

Things with the military didnt work out, right now. And it is kinda odd that we're married but suddenly we're unprepared... but its not like we woke up one day and said "hey, lets go get married" or anything. And though maybe the timing wasnt right, I dont think I'll ever regret it. I'm married to someone I knew I would eventually marry and to someone I couldnt see my life without. So we're married. So we're not moving out for awhile, so what? We're happy, and that's all that should really matter.

The Airforce should watch out, we're both going to get its ass good next time :)

The lazy newly married couple :)

To my husband, thank you for loving me this passed year (and all the other years before, but hey lets focus on the 2009 part, k?). Thank you for your never ending support. Thank you for jumping at every chance you could get with helping me with my blogger or recording/editing my videos or with my OCD. I'm proud of you for leaving me for the military, even though it didnt work out (and you're not a failure, you're still my airman) words cant express how proud I am of you! How proud I'll always be of you. How happy I was when you came home! Thank you for being so caring and loving in everything you do, in every situation between us you handle. For not being mad that I dont know EXACTLY how your favorite video game characters look :) and for keeping me grounded. For understanding me when I dont even understand myself, for kissing away the worries and rubbing the stress away from my forehead. For helping me wash dishes and make the night easier on my parents last night :). Thank you for never letting go of my hand, even during the times I try to shake you off the hardest. For being excited over silly things with me. For knowing how important Serendipity is to me. For encouraging me to push my limits and to be better than I was yesterday. I owe my life to you, you didnt have to save me 6 years ago and you didnt have to KEEP saving me 6 years later. But I thank you. I thank you so much. You have no idea how much you mean to me and how thankful I am for you.

I love you best friend. I've always loved you. I will always continue to love you. I'm so happy to be your wife. I'm yours forever. I hope you're ready for a lifetime of crazy OCD-ness! That's all I got, everything else (compulsive shopping, hoarding, doubting myself) you already got under control :).

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas Eve! I hope you all have a wonderful and safe holiday!


foolishxlady A blog about my experience as a military girlfriend. My boyfriend of 5 1/2 years recently decided to join the United States Air Force. I have a more private journal about this (since I dont want to violate OPSEC) here.

This was originally suppose to be a blog about my experience as a military girlfriend & fiancée. But two weeks before my finance's BMT graduation, he was discharged for medical reasons. So, yeah, that sucks! But he still has the option to re-enlist after two years. They want to make sure he's fully recovered before coming back.

This blog, however will still be where I write about being a newlywed. We got married on December 28th, 2009 in Las Vegas, NV!

With that said, we're not married and since the military thing didnt work out, we're still on a struggle as to what we're going to do from here on out. So if you're interested in hearing about peoples struggles, you've came to the right place!
