New blog!

Hey everyone! Here is the link to my new blog. Please follow! 🙂

Also, I will not be deleting this blog anytime soon. I won’t post on it much at all anymore (I know, I know, I didn’t anyways. :P) but I would like to keep it up for a while anyways.

Here is what’s new in my life with my husband. :)

So hello everyone! Again I know that it has been a long time since I blogged again and I do apologize. I have just honestly been very busy with my new life as a wife and getting everything together for the next few steps of my life. So let us jump into what is new.

First and foremost Erik now has his green card to be here which is super exciting! Just got approved in March. It is one of the biggest accomplishments in both of out lives and we couldn’t be happier about it!

Secondly, starting in August I will be a student at Lourdes University for Pre-nursing. Once I      finish those course I will be going for my BSN which is my bachelors of science in nursing. I am extremely excited to be taking this step in my life and Erik is very excited for me as well. It took a lot of thinking for me to finally come to this decision but I realized that this was my calling in life career wise so I took the leap and right now I am flying through the sky and I know that by the end of this I will land safely on the ground and I will be successful! 

Lastly I am going to be creating a new blog which is just an all about my life blog. It will include stories about Erik and I, stories about my schooling, my beliefs, makeup, basically just my life. I find that it will be easier just having one blog rather than having three and possibly a third. Plus I honestly think that I will post more just having one because two can be a little but too overwhelming at times so I think one will work out just fine for me. So what I am going to do on this blog and my other one is once I am doing creating my new blog I will link it on both of my current blogs. I will leave both of these blogs up for about a week to give anyone that might be following me on either blog and would like to continue to do so some time to switch over to it. It’s going to be hard to delete this one it really will but my love is here, we are married, and we have started our life together as married couple and in the same room as each other so it’s not really a long distance love anymore. It will always be a love that started out long distance but now things have changed for the better. I hope that I was able to help at least one person with this blog. That was my goal and I hope that I accomplished it I really do. I will always be happy to help or answer questions on my new blog as well. Like I said my new blog will still be about Erik and I, just not the long distance part anymore. ❤

So I want to thank anyone that has followed me and this blog has been fun. I will be creating the new blog soon and linking it here and then within a week this one will be gone. Thank you all so much. It has been a blast. 

Much love to you all. ❤

Wowza! I need to keep up with my blogs…..

Hi there everyone! I am so sorry for being so late on this. I just have been so busy with life.

So here it goes, after my last post I obtained a job at a gas station. I worked there for about 4 almost 5 months but then something happened and I stopped working there. 

In August Erik finally arrived here! AMAZING! I drove to Chicago to pick him up at the airport and bring him back to his new home. It has been so amazing. In September we got married at the courthouse. My best friend Megan was a witness for me. She is wonderful. 🙂 Then we had a reception at our home. It was awesome! So now I am officially a Mrs. 😀
Not to mention I am married to the best man in the whole world! 
We still have some things we are going through with the government and him getting his work permit and SS # and all that. Then the process starts for him to become a full citizen. We still have some time to deal with it but it’s getting closer and closer to being done and then we can just live happily ever after without paper work. I love him so much. Erik really is the love of my life and my soulmate and if I had to do this all over again I would in a heartbeat. I wouldn’t trade him for the world. 🙂 

I still haven’t gotten back on track with my diet, I know I’m bad. 😦 But my new years resolution will be to loose weight so I am going to stick with it this time and Erik will be here to help me! 🙂 It truly is so wonderful being able to wake up next to him everyday and know he will be by my side forever. It’s a glorious wonderful feeling. I have never been happier. 😀 

Other than that, not a whole lot has been going on. I may be getting a job after the first of the year. If so that will be wonderful. But other than that things are spectacular. I did start my makeup blog. I haven’t been keeping up with that one either though. I plan on starting it up again though. So once I get it up and running again I will give it a link through here. So everything is as it should be. 🙂 Take it from me, if you are in a long distance relationship and you have the will power, the strength, the determination, and all the love in your heart, then you can make this work. It takes time and some heartache but it can absolutely work for you then you will the happiest you have ever been. So don’t give up! You can make it work! Believe in yourself and in each other! 

I hope my words have helped someone out there. I will try to keep you updated on what’s going on. Until next time, keep believing in your love. ❤ 

Holy cow it’s been a while!

Hello folks! It’s been so long since I’ve blogged and I sure have missed it! Not a whole lot has changed, Erik and I are still as wonderful as ever and things are still great with life in general. I did fall off my diet wagon for a bit but after Christmas it’s getting started back up. I’ve also become very into make-up and I think that’s where I want to go professionally. I will be making a blog about it soon and then I’ll link it on here. Most important thing though is Erik and I should be finding out by the end of the month everything with the Visa. We know it will be good so we’re just excited! 🙂 I can’t wait to finally get married to the love of my life and have him next to me every night! SO EXCITED AND HAPPY! 😀 But that’s really all, my best friend and I just shared birthdays this month, mine was the 5th and her’s was the 8th. So happy Birthday to us! Also I am a licensed STNA and I obtained a job for about 2 months but some things happening with management there made me decided it’d be better if I left that place so until Erik’s here I’m not  going to put myself in that high stress of a job but I will be looking for work elsewhere. So that’s all for now, sorry it’s so short. I will try to  keep updated with this more. Alrighty take care all and I will talk soon! 

“When you find the other half of you nothing can break that bond unless you let it” I love you Erik and nothing will ever break out bond. Together forever we will be. I love you more than anything or anyone, more than all the stars in the universe, and more than life itself my love. Absolutely Forever and Always. <3<3<3<3 🙂  

Long Time No Blog.

Hey everyone! I must first and foremost apologize for not blogging in so long. I’ve just been busy and then when I get all settled in at night I am just too tired to blog. I sincerely apologize.  

But in better news, things are starting to come together for the wedding. I know it’s not for 6 months or so and we don’t have a set date yet because we don’t  know for sure when he’ll be here. But I have a very good friend of mine making the cake for me and she as well as my best friend are helping me to pick out everything for my invitations and are going to help me hand make them! 🙂 I have another friend who is going to be our photographer. Everything is coming together nicely. I’ve found the dress I want and the shoes. Erik and I picked out the REAL wedding set he’s going to buy me once he’s here. Oh is it gorgeous. 😀  I am getting a new engagement ring, obviously not real white gold, it’s stamped .925 sterling silver but it is similar to my wedding set so I wanted to get it. Plus once I become an STNA I want to get used to how that setting and post height fit under my gloves. I do love my  sterling silver engagement ring now but I wanted to get used to a different post setting. Anyways, have the wedding colours picked out, have the maid of honour and bridesmaid dressed picked out as well. It’s all going great. Have the location picked out for the ceremony and then the reception. So making good progress. 🙂 Still a bunch to do but we have time. All I know is he’ll be here within 6 months or so and then we can finally be married and start our life together as a married couple. I CAN’T WAIT! 🙂 Obviously we still have to go through the visa process and that’s what takes the 6 months or so but it will be great. Then he’ll be here with me. Finally. ❤ 🙂 

In other news, I am signed up for my STNA classes. I start the 25th of this month. I am pretty excited! Lol. Already have my scrubs and my shoes so I’m set! I had to take my monroe piercing out though, I’m very sad about it. I’ve had this piercing for 4-5 years and I loved it. But once I get into the work field I don’t believe I’ll be permitted to have it so I might as well get it over with now right? 

So I started my tan membership. I have tanned twice! Ahh how I missed it. I have also lost 2 more lbs. to date. So I’ve lost a total of 10 lbs. in 1 month and a week. Pretty excited about it. 🙂 Finally got a swimsuit too!  It’s an awesome suit! I love it and I got a swimsuit cover-up/sundress to go with it and some sandals. 🙂 I am very happy about it all. 😀

Another piece of fantastic news, Erik got put back on his morning shifts like we both wanted so now when I start my STNA classes we will still be able to talk to each other for  4-5 hours a day. Makes me very happy! Plus morning shift is just better, it feels like we get more time that way and the day goes faster. So very happy about it!

Well all in all that’s about it for now, we’re all caught up on everything! Haha. Other than Shana stayed here with me for a week. It was awesome! 😀 I miss her face. But I will be seeing her Saturday, I’m going over to her house to go swimming so I’m pretty excited about that. Then I’m going to be stopping over at another friends house a bit later in the afternoon to go look at stuff at an arts and crafts store so we can start thinking about what we need for my invitations. But, Erik is gone to work, I’ve had breakfast, and now I’m going to post my advice and end to the post. So here goes.

Here’s my advice for the day :

Don’t let distance be the make or break decision in starting a relationship with someone. If you have true feelings for them and you truly do care enough to try and make it work, then try. You’re either going to sail far and conquer the distance or abandon ship as your boat sinks. But the benefit of trying definitely outweighs the benefit of not. The benefit of trying could lead you to the best thing in your life. Love. It could lead you to the strongest most powerful love. You could find your soul mate. You could find your everything. Like I did. Erik is my world and I didn’t even have to think before making the decision to be with him even though it was long distance. It just came naturally. It came naturally to him too. We knew we were meant to be. Not everyone is going to know that right off the bat but if you do have caring feelings for this person, then try it. Again the worst that’s going to happen is you break up, the best is you could find your soul mate. You could find the person you’re going to marry one day and you’ll be happy. So very happy. 🙂 Point is this, you’ll never know unless you try. Be daring, take the chance. I think it’s worth taking the chance if a  potential lifetime of  love comes out of it, right? So do it. It’s worth the possible lifetime of happiness you could receive.

So in conclusion, had a pretty awesome week  or so , Erik go the shifts we wanted (I still miss him like crazy though), I get to swim in a swimsuit now (haha!), and if you’re out there contemplating starting a long distance relationship with someone you truly care about, then go for it. It could be the best decision of your life. I know mine was. Erik is the best thing to ever happen to me and I wouldn’t trade him for the world. I love him more than anything or anyone and I will forever and always. He’s my soul mate. My life. My everything. So there’s my blog for today folks, I hope you all have a wonderful day. Seeing as I didn’t post this at night before bed I can’t say goodnight but I can say something pertaining to the afternoon. So, have a Good Afternoon World. ❤

Erik my love, I just wanted to say that you’re the best most perfect man in my eyes and I love you so very much. I miss you and I can’t wait for you to get home today so I can hear your amazing voice again. I hope you’re having a good day at work and I will talk to you later on tonight. I miss you and I love you my baby, more than anything or anyone, more than all the stars in the universe, and more than life itself my love. Absolutely Forever and Always. 🙂 ❤ 

Took A Two Day Break.

Well hello everyone. I’m sorry for not blogging in the past two days. I’ve been exhausted. Had a busy day yesterday with working out and the some things my sisters (non biological but sisters in my heart 🙂 ) and I had to address with another family member yesterday and it was very draining emotionally. As for Sunday, I didn’t really do much, I just spent the day talking to my love on the phone since it was his day off and then got too tired to blog. I love when he has days off. 🙂 Makes me a very happy woman. The blog today is going to be rather short because I haven’t really done a whole lot today. So I apologize in advance. 

But let’s see, so here was my day yesterday :  I woke up and talked to Erik for a bit then he was off to work. Then I took a shower and went to the gym. Checked the prices at the tanning salon and was a very happy with what they were so I will begin tanning at the beginning of the month. 🙂 I’m pretty excited about it. Took it a little easy at the gym because of the pulled muscle in my leg or whatever it was. It’s fine today though. Thankfully. Then I left the gym and went straight to see Shana and everyone and then we ventured on to do what we had to do. Did get some delicious Mexican food though! 🙂 My belly was happy! Then after we did what we had too I spent about a half hour longer with just her and her mom. This woman is also my second mother. I grew up with Shana and her mom has always treated me like one of her own and loved me, she is not my mom by blood but she is by heart. I will have 3 moms once Erik and I get married! Haha. But so a total of 2 hours and 10 minutes worth of driving and finally making it home I had just enough time to change into my pajamas when Erik called. It was so nice to hear his voice.  I missed him so. Then we spent a couple hours together and off to bed we were. I slept like a rock! 

Sunday I literally just laid in bed and talked to Erik all day. It was AMAZING! I love it so much! We had a small tiff but again they are good things! Now I think we’re good on tiffs for about a month though! Haha. No we really don’t fight or argue that much, but sometimes we do. It’s natural. This week has just been an extra stressful one for both of us so we fought a little more than usual. No big deal though. 🙂 It made us happier in the long run to vent out stress and we love each other more each day.

Now today, woke up and talked to Erik. Had a bowl of cereal while talking to him, then he had to leave and go to work. 😦 I was sad because I miss him but I know he has to go. I just can’t wait for him to be here with me so we can start our life together as a married couple! I long for it. He is my life and I love him more than life itself. I always will. I just can’t wait for him to be here. But he left, I played some computer games for a bit, then I got dressed, went and got a few groceries and my prescription.  Then I came home and made some lunch, organized my food journal, played a few more games, made dinner, and now here I am. So a pretty simple day. But that’s pretty much been the last few days.

So here’s my advice for the day : Those of you that live within driving distance (which means no more than 10 hours basically) of the person you love, please don’t take it for granted. You could be  2 days (48 hours) away from them. So if you’re in driving distance and you get to see them every weekend. Just cherish it. Cherish it so much. Instead of being sad that it’s not more, be happy you don’t have to wait 6 months or more to see them or touch them. Just be happy and know one day you won’t have to drive even the 5-10 hours because you’ll be together if you work hard enough, you truly love them, and it’s meant to be. And those of you who are in driving distance but haven’t gone to see the person you love, take a day or two off work and go see them! If you can do it then do it. Again you guys will be together one day too if  you work hard enough. Just please don’t take it for granted. Cherish it. I wish I could drive to see Erik every weekend. But I have to wait until he can be here to see him and feel his arms around me again. Yes it makes me incredibly sad, but because he is my soul mate and I love him more than life itself I am happy waiting for him, I’d wait forever for him if I had to. But I know in my heart that he’ll be here with me soon. 🙂 

So that’s my conclusion tonight everyone. I hope you all benefit from my advice and have a great day. So ta-ta for now folks. Goodnight World.

Erik, since I know you’ll be reading, I love you baby, more than anything or anyone, more than all the stars in the universe, and more than life itself my love. Absolutely Forever and Always. You’re my hero baby. ❤ S

A Wonderful Day In The Water.

So today was an alright day in the beginning. Woke up and talked to my love, we had a small tiff this morning but we fixed it before he went to work. Then I took a little nap, woke up and went to Shana’s house to go swimming for a bit. We swam for about 2 and a half hours, and I got a nice sunburn going on that will tan beautifully. 🙂 I had dinner with them, then had to pick my mother up, put air in the car tires, and headed home. Then waited for my love to call me. He’s on first shift for Saturdays so I got to talk to him earlier tonight.  Within the next few weeks he should be on first shift again during the week. (I’m hoping!) But anyways, we had a tiny fight, nothing major and we made up, then we both took showers, got back on the phone and had an amazing time. 😉 I also splurged and ate some pepperoni cheese bread earlier, I shouldn’t have but it was so worth it! I also think I pulled a muscle or have a seized muscle in my calf. It’s sore. But it should hopefully be better by Monday. But that’s pretty much the gist of my day. It was alright, then wonderful, then upsetting, then relaxing, then wonderful, now peaceful. I’d say all in all it turned out to be a great day. 🙂

So here’s my daily advice for the day : This applies to all couples, long distance couples or couples that live together or see each other everyday. Arguing is ok. Actually, arguing is healthy. If you didn’t argue something would be wrong, you’d have built up anger and then you’d either grow to resent them or blow up on them one day. So arguing is very beneficial. Arguing TOO much is a bad thing though, it’s not healthy. I’d say arguing every day is too much but not arguing at least once a week is too little. So somewhere in there would be a great median. I find that Erik and I’s moods are actually better after we argue sometimes because we got rid of some pent up stress. Then we’re super happy and have a great night. 😉 Heehee. So just remember folks, there’s nothing wrong with arguing, it’s healthy and while it sucks you need to learn to accept it as a good thing as long as it’s not too much or too little. So hopefully anyone who’s reading takes this advice and puts it to good use! That’s all for tonight everybody I shall talk to you all again tomorrow. Goodnight world, I hope you sleep peacefully because I sure will. 

And Since I know you’ll be reading this my wonderful man, I love you with all my heart, Absolutely Forever and Always. ❤
