LOVE that my scars are fading! Can't wait until the scars are completely gone! Since I've been on these new meds I have not had a single breakout totally loving these meds! OH almost forgot i've changed my face wash as well im using Boots Expert sensitive face wash, toner, and lotion... I love this stuff!

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 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! :)
