Court went better than I thought,
scratch that it went AMAZING! 
My lawyer is awesome, and I got my dui dismissed, nada nothing... 
Just court fees and a careless driving charge!

Now I can go into the Navy!!!!

I can just not quit smiling , A HUGE weight has been taken off 
and now I can start saving to go see my james :D


Today at four o'clock, my most dreadful moment will be happening! 
Court that is, for my stupid mistake of drinking and driving! Yall please don't ever drink and drive, not only for your safety but for the others!  That 20 dollar taxi ride you think isn't worth it, is worth it; because it may seem like it's not a big deal to drive after a few drinks like I did but it is, after having to sit in jail for 9+ hours, lectures and disappointments from everyone around you, and 3000 dollars in court & lawyer fees later I realized how stupid I was for driving, even though I thought I was ok to drive just 2 mins. down the road! 

Now for court and my punishments! 

I know I am guilty, but praying the jury will say not guilty! 
Please say a quick prayer for me, that I make it out of the court house with not too many punishments,

i believe something is wrong, im actually...

First off, two posts in one day!!! what?!
Yep you are seeing right :)

But I don't know what has gotten into me lately, 
it seems to me that...

and it def. did take its sweet time, but I finally have it back in my life! 
For months after I left my husband (you can read about that here )
I was depressed for the longest time almost 5 months of me being a debbi downer
and not being myself, a stranger to myself! 
A lot of my family, friends, and coworkers worried about me, I turned to alcohol to drown away my problems, started smoking again after quitting for 5 months, partying to 5 in the morning everyday, and became a regular at a bar, and getting a DUI! 

I didn't see it as a bad thing, I saw it as me not having to worry about the worries in my LIFE! 
J, THE NEW MAN IN MY LIFE; saw me struggling, not giving two shits about myself or what I was doing, and still driving drunk after I got a DUI! STUPID I KNOW!
If it wasn't for him lecturing giving advice & helping me everyday; I would still be doing those things! He helped me wanna be a better person and change for the better! 
I can never thank this man enough for helping me and being there 100%! 

For my new years goals (I started before 2012) the biggest one I wanted to accomplish was being a better me and believing in myself that I could and I have! I stopped going out and drinking every night, I QUIT smoking, I stopped letting peer pressure work and got the negative people outta my life and moving on!!

2 weeks into I feel better more energized and motivated!
I get more things done, help my parents out more, saved my money, spent more time with the furbabies! 
I started doing my hobbies again (reading, crafting, writing in my blog)
and my relationship with J has never been better and will be going to Cali to visit soon! :)
My life is filled with happiness now :) 

vacation part 1...

I have to do my vacation in parts,
because stupid Picnik.com decided to be a pain in my ass!
While I tried to put my pictures in collages.

So here is the few I made. Enjoy :)

Since we didn't get to celebrate christmas together, Santa visited us again :)
I guess my family thought I was a stinky butt bc they all got me perfume:
Fancy by Jessica Simpson, Wonderstuck by my girl Taylor Swift, and Victoria Secrets Tease 
I guess if I really did stink before, I wont anymore thank goodness ;)

The scenery was amazing :) 

and old church going through the smokey mountains...
Yes thats a beer.haha! Wasn't mine i finished mine in the car! ;)

While going through all this old buildings! We came across an accident, an elder man tripped backwards on one of the parking things while he was taking a picture of his wife! He busted his head open and was unconcious, with  half of my family being Chiropractors we stopped and helped! His poor wife was so scared, all of us were for them he was not responding (for like 15 mins) and making snoring like noises! None of us had way to get in touch with the ambulance or any help with being in the mountains and having no signal! So my dad drove down the opposite way of a one way street down the mountain to find help! When they got there, the officer said he wasn't looking great and called for a life flight to bring him to the hospital! We left to give them privacy since a huge crowd had formed! 
I pray he is ok and his wife too! Thank God for good people helping them and doctors and nurses on the scene before the officer got there to call for help! 

This lady said they were having such an amazing time that day, 
and in the blink of an eye things changed for the worse!

Shows that anything can happen and change in a second even when you are having the most amazing time! So make sure you always tell your loved ones how much you love them every time you get the chance, and live your life to  the fullest, you never know when it will be your last!

First off, I am back from vacation...
I wanted my parents to accidently leave me, 
but nope of course I didn't have the guts to hide because honestly driving around the mountains scared the living crap outta me and my driver never showed up so I had to come back to bama I guess I will have to settle for the beaches instead of the mountains! Bummer haha..I only kid! 
I am glad too be home safe and sound and around my wonderful friends I am just missing one person Mr Amazing Marine! :/

But I will be doing my vacation posts tomorrow :) 
But for now I am doing a new link up with...

Sometimes... I wanna deactivate my facebook account because people annoy me
Always... keep it activated because it gives me something to laugh about and something to do and maybe cyber stalk some people

Sometimes... I make a plan to start eating healthy
Always... Find the greasy food more appetizing 

Sometimes... I snap on people or not think before I speak
Always... Apologize for any mean things I said and hope for forgiveness and beat myself up over for days (not literally knock myself out but make myself fell bad)

Sometimes... I second guess myself about wanting to go into the military
Always... remember that this will be the best thing for me 

Sometimes... I find that all the reality tv shows I watch are very stupid and think I shouldn't watch them because I am sure they kill a lot of brain cells.
Always... end up watching them and laughing my ass off at all the stupid things a few brain cells won't hurt! right?

Sometimes... I wonder why I have been through so much in so little time
Always...   remember God has a plan for me and he wouldn't put me through something if he knew I wasn't strong enough too be able to handle it and I always thank him for the hard times because if I never had hard times I wouldn't be thankful for the great times :)
