Girls Night Out :)


Tonight was girls night out PLUS My Gabers!!!!!!!!! Yeppers he tagged along with Crystal & I to the bowling alley for our little work get together. I was not planning on going at all due to some personal reasons that kinda upset me but then I though. "I am better than this & will go just for a bit". So after dinner the four of us (Crystal, Chy. Gabe & I) headed up to the bowling alley to say "HELLO." That was the plan, we were going to go have a drink & make a appearance then be on our way.
But My Love had other plans, he talked the two of us in to playing a game, so Crystal & I rotated on & off. Half way through, I was thinking this really isn't that bad and I am glad that I came. I love the girls that I work with (just the ones that are in my room were there) and am really blessed to have such a close nit team. I enjoy going to work (for the most part) knowing I get to spend my day with them. We ended the first game & Michelle headed out so Crystal & I took over her 2ND game that she already paid for & had a blast. We were all laughing, dancing, singing and bowling our little hearts out. AAAHHHHH, Cosmic Bowling YEE~HAW.....it was a blast. I Managed to get one STRIKE & a spare or two.

Not to bad for a girl that hasn't been bowling in FOREVER. Our "stopping by & saying Hi and heading on our way" turned in to a all nighter. But totally worth it. I think we have decided that once a month we will plan some type of get together.
Gabe even enjoyed himself, I hate going and doing things with out him when he is home, hints the reason he tagged along. I talked him into it. Crystal, Sharon & Michelle are all Army spouses & their husbands are all deployed right now, set to be back by the end of the year. Mrs. Melanie's Husband is retired Army & the other two girls that we work with are local Mrs. Karen, her husband is away for the week visiting family & Nicole's boyfriend....well decided to stay home.
We had a wonderful evening & can't wait to do it again.

21 DAYS

So my friend Crystal & I are taking on a 21 day challenge.
We are going to the track every evening & walking around at least 3 times and then jogging around once for the first week, & each week there after we will jog one more time around. I was so nervous the first night we went because I had both the pups. and well doing any kind of walking with them is a work out in its self. Thankfully be time we did our 3 walking laps they were getting warn out & semi calm. So the jog went very well. I felt so good about myself when we finish. I was a bit worried because of my ankles & not having a arch it tends to hurt very badly when I run however I did just fine.
I was excited about it & in my head I wanted to go again but my body was telling me to WAIT! We ended the evening walking around the track one more time to cool down. It was wonderful, just being able to talk with Crystal and enjoy the nice evening breeze. It took my mind off Gabe being gone for a bit.
We headed home with plans to do it all over again tomorrow after work. "Yeah Tiffany you can do this." I though to myself. After getting home & settling down a bit, I decided to challenge myself one more time. I jumped on Gabes Rower that we have up stairs and gave it a spin. Doing 15 minutes & sweating my booty off like crazy. Oh man I was feeling it.
I am excited about our challenge & continuing with it even after the 21 days with My Love. The only thing that sucks about it is that right after the 21 days I leave for Texas for 3 weeks. Meaning when I get back I am going to have to start all over.
Well, I guess I would rather start over than not start at all. We have a goal & I am sticking with it and once I reach that I will let you all in on it :), but until then back to the challenge we go.

Thunder Bird Air Show





Today I had the chance to go to the 2009 Thunderbird air show with my sweet friend Crystal & Meko along with both of their daughters. It was their 56Th season to preform and by far amazing. I had never been to a event like this before so I really didn't know what to expect. I figured some type of planes flying around doing tricks but nothing as stunning as it was. We managed so get in and sneak past security, not that we were trying just the people directing traffic didn't tell us the right way to go. There were so many people out there and tons and tons of little chittlens.
From the amazing food & drinks to the show & being able to walk in and look through some of the Air Force planes that are used today, it was all pretty neat.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~The air show was the best part by far & it was so amazing to see the crew doing the different tricks & swirls.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~There was moments when our hearts dropped because two planes coming from different directions would cross right side by side & they would be going so fast it seemed as if they were going to crash. Or two flying side by side one upright and the other upside down. At one point they all went up in the high and formed a heart with the exhaust from their planes, the HEART was made to represent the fallen service men and women over the past years. Once done the crowd cheered with joy. It was one of those moments you had to be there to feel it and I am so blessed to have been. The air show was amazing and crazy. It takes some guts to be able to do what they do, no way I could do it.
It truly was one of the BEST days I have had in Hawaii since I have been here, if only My Love had been here to experience it with me as well. It would have been even better. (he is in the field right now doing FTX till next Thursday)

What's Cookin Good Lookin???

I love cooking now that Gabe is home & we actually live together. It's something that I look forward to in the evenings when I get home from work. We are always trying out new recipes and putting our own twist on things that we like as well.
We have started quite the recipe book collection & there is only millions more out there for us to find & new things to try.


Dessert last night: Apple Pie Quesadillas...they turned out great & super simple to make.




Dinner Saturday night: Kalua Pork & White Rice....something that I have come to LOVE. Gabe really liked it as well. This is a Hawaiian Dish. Prob. one of the very few Hawaiian foods I like.



Dinner for TWO PLEASE!!!



Last week we made Roast in the Crock pot. The recipe called for a 12oz can of beer & well I can't even stand the smell of beer so the thought of cooking with it was creeping me out a bit. Needless to say once it was done & we added our Pea's & Mash Potato's it was fantastic.



We really enjoy cooking together as well, it makes for a wonderful evening :)

life

"i know that God will not give me more than i can handle; i just wish He would stop trusting me with so much."

**true story**

i heard this today from a friend, it is oh so true. however sometimes it seems as if i can take on everything. in reality i really can't. i just need to take a step back sometimes and let it go. God has a plan in place for everything that Gabe & I go through in our life.

that is what excites me the most about each and every new day.

***It doesn't matter what kind of car I drive.
***It doesn't matter what kind of house I live in.
***It doesn't matter if my house if furnished with the latest & greatest.
***It doesn't matter what the floor looks like.
***It doesn't matter if the bed isn't made.
***It doesn't matter if I don't dress like everyone else.
***It doesn't matter if I don't have the ideal job.
***It doesn't matter if the dogs get hair on the couch right after I clean them.
***It doesn't matter if I am not up with the latest style.
***It doesn't matter if I have a million dollars or five dollars
***It doesn't matter if I'm pretty or not.
***It doesn't matter what other people think of me.
***It doesn't matter how I live my life.
***It doesn't matter what I eat & were.
***It doesn't matter what kind of hang bag I carry & if it's name brand or not.
***It doesn't matter were I have been in life.
***It doesn't matter how many friends I have.
***It doesn't matter if you don't like me, it's not my lose it's yours.
***It doesn't matter that I'm not super skinny.
***It doesn't matter if I have loads of bling bling / Jewelery.
***It doesn't matter what state I live in.
***It doesn't matter what my house looks like inside or out.
***It doesn't matter that sometimes I mess up things cooking.
***It doesn't matter that I may not be that adventures.
***It doesn't matter if my hair is black, brown, blond, red, pink or blue.
***It doesn't matter that I can't just walk into a store & buy whatever I want with out making sure we have enough money.
***It doesn't matter if I shop at Wal Mart or Kmart.
***It doesn't matter were I came from & how I grew up.

I could go on & on there are so many things that....well you know just DON'T matter to me anymore.
As long as his hand is in mine, I am as happy as can be & head over heels in love. NOW THAT'S ALL THAT MATTERS.
As we were walking back to the car last night from having dinner down in Waikiki @ Planet HollyWood, we were holding hands. I began to think that nothing in the world not a single thing I owned or person I know matters more to me than this man right here by my side.
I told myself that I am going to live by this from now on. I am going to live for Gabe & not other people. Because @ the end of the night when I lay my head down on my pillow he is going to be the one right there beside me HOLDING MY HAND.
