Closet must-haves

Black slacks; perfect for a date night or job interview

Plain white top; perfect for errands or to wear under a blazer or sweater

Denim jacket;I prefer the crop style so it looks more stylish

Red or white sundress. You can't go wrong with a sundress; especially one in one of those colors

Black sweater; perfect to throw over tanks for more coverage

Black classy dress; Perfect for a job interview or a night for cocktails with work colleagues.

Blue jeans that are classic; no holes. Great for casual Friday at the job or to run errands.

Black sexier dress for the infamous girls night outs

Decorative jeans. These are always my favorite because they'll make a casual look look much more sexier

Black yoga pants; they're comfy and great for errands, lounging or the gym. Not to mention they're super sexy compared to plain sweats.

It is military spouse appreciation day and I just wanted to give a shout out to the wonderful, loyal and faithful military spouses out there. I know firsthand it is not easy; most of you all have much bigger tasks than I have...such as raising a family or even holding down the household while your soldier deploys or is in danger zones. You never know if you will see him again...it's hard. Even when he's home; you never know when he's going to deploy again. It's not easy loving a soldier, but they do a wonderful job serving our country. Military spouses are not honored enough I believe; so today is your day and enjoy it!

RealityTV

    I have been in the dumps lately but things are getting a tad easier to deal with. My depression and anxiety had really hit a low point but luckilly I have good friends and I've learned to stay a lot busier with work, school, et cetera. I have a lot of reasons to be very sad lately however; but that is life and all I can do is be a survivor and keep moving on! :) One of my guilty pleasures is reality t.v.; so that is what I'd like to discuss. I'm a total reality t.v. junkie. My favorite shows are real housewives of Atlanta and basketball wives. The thing about the real housewives of Atlanta...none of them are housewives. They are all moms, but only one is an actual wife and a few were married in the past. With basketball wives; none are real basketball wives; most were engaged and a few were married to NBA players. Makes no sense to me; but I guess they still go along with the theme, sort of. I guess if they were once married to an NBA player; they can still have the title of basketball wives. I'd love a show about real army wives or real military wives. That would be a good show; I think one is in the works I've heard! Apparently they were or are filming in the San Diego area; but that can just be a rumor. I'd love for them to really spend time with military spouses dealing with deployment, traveling with their spouses or just raising a family and the ups and downs the military can bring. I love being a military spouse; but it's definatly a hard job in itself. There are perks at times; but everyday I also hear of soldiers dying and I know it's just very difficult and sad and lonely most of the time. Honestly; I would not trade being a military spouse for anything anyhow. I am proud and it's a tough thing to deal with. Anyhow; with the housewives of Atlanta, many people give Kim a hard time because she used to basically have a married sugar daddy and now she's apparently happily married to a NFL player who seems very mature, mellow and nice. A lot of people do not think she's deserving of him, and that maybe true but I think she may have needed someone like that in her life to get her on a right track and no one knows how people are when the cameras are not rolling. I am actually happy for her, Kim is my favorite on the show; however I do not agree with her getting tons of money and expensive gifts from a married man. I guess people can change and he must see something about her he loves obviously.

Army Wife Vents

   I feel like I want to blame deployment on every problem my marriage has. ...we have little communication except quick phone calls because he's so busy all the time, I feel alone and honestly you have to be tough and trust each other big time. Even if a spouse does do something wrong; how would either one of you know about it? It is a scary thought. It also makes me mad that when you are loyal and lonely daily; some soldiers still think their wives are doing wrong...so you are screwed either way it seems.When something breaks in the house or I need my car fixed; it's because of deployment my husband is not here. I know this is what he signed up for and I knew what I was getting myself into but it is so hard. My friends do not understand; they cry when their boyfriends are just gone for a day or has a late shift at work. I have never been more miserable in my life than this honestly; it's so depressing being alone and this was our first year of marriage. People can change so much in a year too...so it's hard to know someone can easilly have a change of heart while they are deployed; and I feel so awful for women that happens to, because I've known couples who go through that...and deployment must be the reason to blame, right? I am just being a tad stubborn because I know true love can get through a deployment; but sometimes I just have to say..."Screw you,deployment." It is very hard and it seems like the closer it is t ending; the more anxiety I get. I have not gotten to even live with my husband yet and I had to go about getting our first place together all by myself. Sure; I sent him pictures of the place but it was so hard not being able to just hold hands and go look ourselves...oh,well...I guess that's just part of deployment and honestly I hate bitching, because at least he's safe and I know tragedies happen pretty much daily over in the countries our soldiers are at. I've learned to really appreciate our time with loved ones and to be a lot more patient...and I wish I wouldve stayed a lot more busier. I feel like lately all I do is snap and am so frustrated and angry. I hate the person I am lately and I am a very nice and giving person...but I hate how depressed this has made me and I do not blame deployment completely...but I just wonder how differently things would have been without this last year of my best friend being gone. I am actually tearing up thinking about it. It's a bittersweet feeling...accomplishment he's coming home and is safe...but then a lot of sadness on all we missed out on together; Valentines Day, our birthdays, his sons birthdays...all those little holidays we do not think are important but "normal" couples get to celebrate together. This is army wife life...our men aren't here often but at least we cheish those little times we are together a lot more. Lots of couples argue over money issues during deploymet too. Sure a soldier can save a lot of money overseas; but I think it's sad and awful when I hear another wife claim her husband says he's "using  up his money."  I think it's YOUR money if you are a couple; children or not. You have a girl waiting on you and as long as she's paying the bills...which are YOUR bills too then you should not complain. Appreciate the girl whose waiting on you. With my husbands money; it goes on my car payment...which is actually OUR car; and some of living expenses such as if I need gas, food,etc.    I hate when I hear a wife say how her husband thinks its all HIS money. No; she waits for you, she's alone everyday...hell, she deserves a lot more probably! I would never use anyone or think its okay to use anyone,ever...but paying bills is not cheap, single or together so I get so upset hearing about selfish soldiers who are away for a year; but cry about money issues when their wife is using it for bills.

Friendship weekend

   This weekend I will be celebrating with my best friends. I want to express how lucky I am to have the friends I do. I would think I am a pretty good judge of character; but these people are great. I see some people whose friends date their exes, never include them, and only want to "party." I love friends who are there when you are broke, when you are in the hospital, when you are sick and when you just need to vent. I have the best friends ever and everyday they amaze me at how caring and loyal they are. My friend's bday is this weekend and i'm sad it will be all couples; since my man is still deployed. That is okay though; because deep down I know he'd want me to have fun every once in awhile. I know If he were here; he would come along and when he's here I will not ever have to go places alone anymore. I love him more each day. I am ready for a nice weekend; I've been working hard since Jan. with this new job...I work as a program advisor for an online school for military spouses and I love it. I get to work from home! Once me and my husband move; I will be able to do my direct sales home party businesses too....to get out of the house and of course help my husband financially as much as possible. I want us to be able to have a lot of money saved for emergencies and to just help him. He is such a hard worker and that is another reason I love him so much. I respect his work ethic completely. He doesn't understand really why I love home businesses but I do it for us too. I always want to be the stay at home mommy who is making wonderful income but never misses her daughters dance recitals or any of her sons baseball games. I want to be the PTA mom who is always there. I know many parents work hard and unfortuantly miss out of their childrens events or activities and I know people have to work; but for me; I am going to always do home businesses only. I think having a home business is actually more difficult. It does usually require more discipline and most are in sales which is very stressful at times. I am glad I do not have to ''sell,'' I just help military spouses get started in education and I give them the basic information; if they choose to get started; the company helps them from there. I post ads and just let them know they can possibly attend our courses; with tuition free. I feel proud of myself because many people let these benefits go to waste because they do not know of them. Anyhow; we are going to celebrate my friends bday and just have some much-needed friend time. All of us have men we love dearly so do not spend as much time together as we used to. I am excited to hang out with them. I am a firm believer in keeping your friendships healthy; just as you would a marriage. Of course; a marriage is much more serious most of the time....but I believe in really appreciating good friends as well and always being there for them too! I hate being away from my husband but I know that soon we'll get to spend all the missed outings, holidays.etc. together and I can not wait!

Homecoming Outfits

In honor of the hopeful  end of this deployment; I figured I'd write about awesome looks for homecoming. This is a big thing to us spouses & girlfriends who get all dolled up just for our skype dates. So; homecoming is a big deal to us; for sure. I see many ladies asking "what should I wear for homecoming?" on many military spouse support pages I am on.  I know our solider's probably do not care if we showed up in sweatpants with no makeup; however to most girls; we seriously usually think a lot about them! My advice would to not overdo it; and wear something just incase you to run & jump in his arms :) If it's colder; wear something like a sweater dress, leggings and super cute boots. Dress it up with jewelry and beautiful makeup & hair. You do not want to look over done; but you can still look beautiful; this is a big day! Keep in mind his co-workers and many families will be there; with children so do not dress revealing...save that for later. By the way; sexy lingerie to suprise him under your clothes will have him super excited! I have shared some of my favorite ideas; for both warmer & colder weather.

Facts about me

Facts about me!

I used to always want to be a teacher or broadcast journalist

Everyone calls me witty or very blunt & honest...too honest. Deep down; I am super sensitive and I want to be everyone's friends and make everyone happy. I'm the girl who will buy everyone a Christmas gift; even if I do not know you very well. I like to make people happy and I'm usually super friendly to everyone if I feel comfortable.

I used to be a cheerleading coach in highschool; and as a child I was on an all-star competitive cheerleading team. I made the jr. high cheer squad in 8th grade or so; but I was always ineligible and in trouble...so that did not fit too well with the "cheerleader" reputation & rules

I love reality tv! All of the shows people I know call so tacky; yet addictive...teen mom, jersey shore, 16 & pregnant, etc.

I am very sensitive and I love nice people. I am so sensitive that honestly whenever I watch tv; some scene usually makes me cry...I'm trying to be tougher!

I do modeling on the side; I've been in catalogs and I have done modeling & promotion work for Dillards, Budweiser, a Katy Perry Concert, a project runway contestant & more! I have even been a ring card girl for a few boxing events; locally and nationally. I plan on doing a lot more modeling soon; I've taken too much time off.

My personality is pretty much like my grandmothers...very sweet and giving...but don't piss her off; you will see her crazy side. I am working on being more calm however. I think with maturity; you don't let your crazy side show. I never want to be a pushover however.

I love to read and write...and I'm a complete internet addict!

I love couponing but I make such a mess with it!

I am a bit of a hoarder; I hate getting rid of things. I am much better however than I used to be. I realize I don't really miss things I thought i'd hate getting rid of.

I am super unorganized; but I need my closet to be organized; even by color-coordination.

My husband is a soldier; and he's hot.

40 People Say A Lubbock Woman Scammed Them Out Of Thousands

A few days ago I was approached by a newcaster who was interested in doing a story on a problem I was having. One day on facebook I got a friend request from a "business" titled Marcys Closet...yes; without the apostrophe. I noticed we had many mutual friends of military wives and support groups for the troops. I know a lot of military wives, girlfriends,etc. advertise and support among each other so I approved her request and checked out her page. She sold a lot of things and I placed an order and never got my items. She would then not anwser her e-mails and block ladies who ordered from her; some order totaling over 2K. My order was pretty small; however it's wrong she was targetting women, military spouses and anyone around the holidays especially. So many ladies have not gotten refunds; yet some were only able to through paypal if they used that as a payment method. She goes by a few different names such as Marcella, Marcy and numerous facebook names and pages...most around the name of Affordable fashionista, material girl fashion,etc.
She never once apologized or did anything except make excuses. She would say she had a miscarriage the day before, or the items we ordered were in a shed and would be delivered...it was just all sick lies; especially the ones about her children. When I first ordered I thought things were sort of fishy because I got a fake tracking number and then suddenly on her page I noticed people were asking for the correct tracking numbers and she would soon delete them from her page. I decided to contact those ladies and we all compared evidence, stories and so on. I realized I had been scammed; and the sad part is that after many of us confronted her; she was still opening new pages and scamming new people. She even had the nerve to go under the name of Material Girl Fshn next and post she's selling things to donate to the troops...sick. Again; my order was fairly small (under $100) but my husband is deployed, we are young newlyweds, and he works very hard for his money. If I wanted to give away money; It would not be to a scam. I trusted her because she claimed she was a marines' girlfriend and she posted lots of photos of her merch and I have the messages even saved where she claimed that my order would not take long and it was shipped on a certain date...be careful ladies; I guess there are monsters who love to target military spouses. Of course; she did not only target spouses of troops; some were local ladies in her area she'd even send an assistant to pick up money from; promising them their orders once they arrived. I have yet to get my refund back.
