All Hands

1st episode of the PBS documentary of my 1st deployment onboard the USS Nimitz...keep an eye out for me at 53:09 :)


I just recieved my first issue of Fitnes Magazine and there was an article on there about box wine... I love wine so I decied to try one of them because they were highly rated.  I tried the Black Box Wine
let me just say this wine tasted and smelled like pee!!! It was DISGUSTING!!!!!


Looking for Workouts?

While on Pintrest I came across this post that was in regards to a workout website.  The website is

It is one of Canada's online women's magazine and I must say that this website is AMAZING! it has everything you need! BUT my favorite part about the website is... when you click on the health tab then go to the exercise finder it shows a picture of a woman and all you have to do is click on the part of the body you want to work on and it will give you multiple exercises to work on that area!

Highly recommend everyone checking this website out!

Back to the Nimitz I go!

A couple weeks ago I found out that i'm going back to the USS Nimitz come Aug! For those that don't know i was stationed on the Nimitz from '04-'06 with the hubster by my side as an Undesignated Seaman meaning I had no job title and no rank...
We got to experience out first deployment together in '05 since then i've been to sent to school in both Chicago for Naval Hospital Corps School

and Pensacola for Aviation Medicine School,
 worked at the hospital in Dermatology,

Stationed on the USS Peleliu (LHA5)...did a deployment with them in '10

...its funny how things have come a full circle bringing me back to where I first started the good ol' USS Nimitz (CVN68) only difference now is Quincy can't deploy with me and im going back as a HM2(SW/AW)...

Hospital Corpsman Second Class

      Enlisted Surface Warfare Specialist

Enlisted Aviation Warfare Specialist

 I was a little hesitant at first just becuase it in Washington and I didn't want to leave San Diego but now as the days get closer i'm getting a little more excited!  This is after all why I joined the Navy to travel and see the world....  Time for new adventures with the hubster! :)

Am I Wrong?

Okay so let me tell you the story and I want you to tell me if im wrong...

Me and Ericka have been friends for a really long time then she got stationed on the nimitz and they relocated to i haven't seen her in 3 YEARS! so when I found out that she was going to be here for a few days I was so excited to hang out with her again and just reconnect.  So here we go

Day 1: Thursday. Went to pick her up at the ship...waited for 2 HOURS after the time she said she was gonna be ready and it turns out that her boyfriend Josh didn't want her to leave so she sat with him on the ship for a while even though she knew i was waiting and had been for a while. Got over, hung out for a while then had to take her back to the ship by 11pm.

Day 2: Wednesday. Called me at 5pm to go get her so that we could go shopping go there and she was with Josh (first time meeting him)...he was supposed to go with his friends so that we could shop but instead decided he wanted to come with us, okay cool.  Get to Las Americas and after 3 stores he's ready to go. so we do.  Invited them to the padres game and his response was no we're not going i don't do baseball... whatever. We get in the car and she asked him what he wants to eat:
Ericka: do you want to sit down or grab something quick
Josh: no, don't want to sit just want to grab something
Me: well quincy is cooking right now, we can grab something then go to my house and eat
Ericka: YEA! do you want to eat at Misty's?
Josh: well i kinda wanted to sit down and eat...
Ericka: so what do you want to do? go back to the ship?
Josh: Yea
Me: so im taking you back
Ericka: yes
take them back at 8pm

at this point i already don't like him....

Day 3: Saturday i invite her over to watch the fight...she says "Well Josh isn't talking to me so if he still isn't talking to me later then yes" this same time she's waiting for a friend and is about to go downtown with him (not Josh) okay cool...time come for the fight she says well i don't want you to have to come get me so im just gonna hang out with Perry...

Day 4: Sunday day of Game.  If you remember she told me she wasn't gonna go to the game because Josh didn't want to go right? well day of game call her up and she's out downtown with some other friends (again not Josh) so at this point im thinking maybe its just me that she won't ditch josh for (getting a little butt hurt) either way I invite her and her friends over to the house for BBQ and she says cool then i don't hear or see her for that day.

Day 5: Monday. shes on duty
Day 6: Tuesday.  no call or text
Day 7: Today. She was supposed to go with me to Butts and Guts and spin...knew about it for a week now...and i get a voicemail saying "hey im with Malisa, don't know where we're going and don't know what time we're getting back so i'll text you later...hmmm

Am I wrong for feeling a little betrayed and asking her:  why is it that you will ditch Josh to hang out with everyone else but when I ask to hang out i get "if josh is still not talking me then yes"?

Crazy Captain!

caught of glimpse of this story on the TV about a pilot who had an "episode" on the plane and had to do an emergency landing.  Obviously I wanted to know more so I googled it!
 Here's the story:

Apparently a pilot onboard a jetblue flight was acting erraticly so his co-pilot kicked him out of the cockpit and locked the door.  The pilot then proceeded to run up and down the isle yelling "say your prayers" and had to be tackled by 4 memebers onboard and retrained until they did an emergency landing.  That's kinda the jist of it.  clickon one of the links below for the full story


This weekend the hubster and I were entertaining a couple of our cousins and two of thier kids and they ran sack our house!!!

Friday, Sat, and Sunday consisted of beer/wine pong (which i won first time ever playing) and lots of drunkeness!

Come time to go to work Monday morning...I woke up to my living room being flipped upside down,  my kitchen...well lets just say i couldn't see a single piece of counter space or table space for that fact, My wine is completly gone (by gone i mean my wine/liquor cabinet is empty! WAH!!!), and my fridge was cleaned out! Then, as im walking outstide I open the door and see his cousin asleep on a chair in the garage

You think that would be all they could possibly do to the house right??? NO!... they decided they wanted to camp out!... in my garage! They had tents up, forts built, and all my snacks were gone...AUGH!!! oh well...all in all it was a good time...

John Mayer - Edge of Desire Lyrics

Young and full of running
tell me where is that taking me
just a great figure eight
or a tiny infinite

love is really nothing
but a dream that keeps waking me
for all of my trying
we still end up dying
how can it be?

don't say a word
just come over and lie here with me
cause I'm just about to set fire to everything I see

I want you so bad I'll go back on the things I believe
there I just said it
I'm scared you'll forget about me

so young and full of running
all the way to the edge of desire
steady my breathing
silently screaming
I have to have you now

wired and I'm tired
think I'll sleep in my clothes on the floor
baby this mattress will spin on its axis
and find me on yours

don't say a word
just come over and lie here with me
cause I'm just about to set fire to everything I see

I want you so bad I'll go back on the things I believe
there I just said it
I'm scared you'll forget about me

don't say a word
just come over and lie here with me
cause I'm just about to set fire to everything I see

I want you so bad I'll go back on the things I believe
there I just said it
I'm scared you'll forget about me.

John Mayer- Love Soon

love me some John Mayer :)

The Forgotten

Its funny how when an entertainer dies thats all the world can talk about. Even shows are changed to pay tribute. But when a member of the armed forces dies we don't hear about it, there's no tribute, no shows are changed, no one really cares but the others they serve with and their families....

I mean i love Whitneys music don't get me wrong she was an amazing artist but its seriously that's all i have heard about ALL day! on TV, the radio, and the internet. And whats even more funny is a lot of these people used to bad mouth her when she was struggling now they want to worship her

Another Giveaway!

Found out yesterday that i won another giveaway on youtube! don't remember what it was that i entered for so it'll be a surprise :)

Good to Know!

Got this info from

great information for those with acne issues.  This website also includes proper ways to wash your face if you do stuggle with acne plus tons of useful information

Acne myths explained

  • Myth:

    Washing your face more often will help clear up acne

    Reality:Facial blemishes are not caused by dirt.1 Contrary to what you may have seen in commercials, pores do not get blocked from the top down due to "impurities". Rather, the walls of a pore stick together deep within the skin, starting acne formation. Far from preventing acne, frequent washing may actually irritate pores and cause them to become clogged. A washcloth can add even more irritation. The best bet is to wash very gently with bare hands, and only wash twice a day.2
  • Myth:

    Stress causes acne

    Reality:Stress may have an effect on hormones and theoretically can promote acne. However, an effective acne system is more powerful than a bout of stress any day. Some psychiatric medications may have acne as a side effect, but stress itself is no big deal.3 Your time is better spent determining the right course of acne treatment rather than feeling guilt about stress.1,4
  • Myth:

    Masturbation or sex causes acne

    Reality:This antiquated notion, originating as early as the 17th century to dissuade young people from having premarital sex, is not based on scientific evidence. A more plausible explanation may be that higher levels of androgens (male sex hormones) can cause increased sex drive. We also know that high levels of androgens can be related to more severe cases of acne. So it may be the higher androgen levels and not the associated increase in desire for sexual activity that is related to acne.
  • Myth:

    The sun will help get rid of acne

    Reality:10-20 minutes per day for sun exposure for people with lighter skin and 20-30 minutes per day for people with darker skin may prove beneficial for acne symptoms, especially body acne. However, overly exposing your skin to the sun creates skin damage, which leaves the skin irritated. This irritation can result in more acne in the weeks following over exposure as the skin heals itself. If you notice a break out "out of the blue," ask yourself if you got sunburnt about two weeks ago. That may be the cause.1-2,5
  • Myth:

    Diet and acne are related

    Reality:The bottom line is we need more research. We do know that people in some indigenous societies do not experience acne whatsoever across the entire population. This is in stark contrast to the widespread presence of acne throughout all modern society. It leaves us to ponder whether the indigenous people's unprocessed hunter/gatherer diet contributes to their acne-free skin or whether their clear skin is a result of genetics or some other factor. Discovering a dietary way of preventing acne may be a future reality, however, we may live so differently from our hunter/gatherer ancestors that it has become close to impossible to replicate our ancestral diet.1-2,6-8 But, let's see if we can work together to come to some concensus from our own experiences. If you feel that you have cleared your acne using a particular diet, or if you are planning on attempting a diet of some kind, please post your method on the Nutrition & Holistic health message board. Keep in mind that almost any diet will appear to work in the short term because as your body loses weight, insulin and other hormones react and acne tends to recede. Then, as body weight levels out or increases, acne symptoms tend to return. Any legitimately effective anti-acne diet should continue working after the initial weight loss period.
