Jake finally got orders! By Christmas we will be in...
Tampa, Florida! 
I'm so stinking excited to move, see a new place, get a new bigger house, and have an exciting journey with my family! This will be my first PCS so I hope it goes smoothly. It turns out that someone Jake previously worked with owns a house there that should be available for us to move to around that time frame so we might already have a lead on a place to live. It's four bedrooms with plenty of room for our dogs and new baby and it's just so exciting! I've only been to Florida once but from what I remember it was nice. It has nicer beaches than Cali and better water for scuba diving, which I hope to get into, and snorkeling which I LOVE! It's also more affordable than San Diego which is a plus! We can also wrestle alligators! haha just kidding but I would love to see one! I've already been researching the area and things to do and I thing it will be a great place to experience. I cannot wait to move!

Oh and on a side note...My furbaby Penny turns 4 today! They grow up too fast!

I Hate Clothes

When the hell did fashion take such a drastic curve in the wrong direction? 
I went to the mall yesterday in search of some summer tops because I have none! My favorite store of all time for Juniors clothes (yes I refuse to move up to womens. I will stay in Juniors as long as I possibly can) has always been Jcpenny. They always had clothes in my style for very cheap. I went there yesterday and everything was a crop top! I cannot wear a crop top. I am not a size zero so there is no way in hell I am letting my gut hang out for all to see. I ended up finding one tank I liked in the whole store, one of very few that was normal length. I haven't been clothes shopping in a couple years so I felt sooo behind in the fashion trends. I had no idea cropped tops were all  young people were wearing now a days. After being very let down by what used to be my favorite place to shop I stopped at Forever 21 which is my second favorite store. Once again everything was cropped or completely see through. I think layering is another trend I haven't caught onto yet. I left that store empty handed. 
While we were on our way out of the mall a new store caught my eye that I had never been to before called Cotton On and I found a really cute tank there and lot of other fun quirky things but I talked myself out of buying those. So after what seemed like a whole afternoon of shopping I left with two tanks. Only spent $25 which makes me happy but my wardrobe really needs some new things. I still wear things from High School. I also have stuff in my closet and drawers that I haven't worn in years that I really need to donate. For each new thing I get I have to get rid of one that I currently have.   
I guess I need to find some new stores to shop at. I'm thinking of going out and trying Target and Kohls. Where do you guys get your summer clothes?

The Great Bernardo Fire; Animal Center Evacuation!

The lovely San Diego has a 700 acre brush fire going on right now and it is absolutely crazy! How convenient that it is occurring right behind my work where we had 400 animals that needed to be evacuated. I was not at work today but heard about this on Facebook. I called in and asked if they needed any more help but by the time I had heard about it they already had all the help they needed. 
With the gracious help of the community all the animals were evacuated safely and I was so happy and relieved to hear this! Those animals at work are honestly very important to me and I treat them like they are my own. I couldn't bare to think of anything happening to them. They were all relocated to our long time supporter; Sea World, where they are getting food, water, walks, and lots of love. Most importantly they are safe!
I don't know how long it will take for this fire to be put out or how long the animals will have to wait to go back to the center. Heck I don't even know if I am supposed to go to work tomorrow or SeaWorld or what! I'm still waiting to hear from my boss about what is going on. I just hope we will be able to get the fire under control and that no people or buildings get harmed!

Anti Military Spouse Appreciation Day

Yesterday I came home from a very long day at work to a beautiful rose on my door. Attached was a sweet card from our housing office. I will admit that the rose made my day. Not because I'm a military spouse but because I had a really long stressful day at work. I honestly think this day is stupid. I should have a special day dedicated for me because I love and support my husband just like every other wife should? Why don't all wives get a special day? So we occasionally suffer through deployments where our husbands are away for long periods and sometimes in danger. I know people back home who are married to men who travel a lot for work on oil rigs or construction. They are gone for months at a time and risk their lives every day too. We are wives. Yes we are married to a military man but we are wives to these men because we love them. I don't do anything special or feel entitled because of my husband's career choice. I guess I just feel like all wives should have a special day as a whole because we are all the same in wanting what's best for our spouses.

Let the FUN of school begin

I just took my last section test for my dog training certification! Woo Hoo! So excited to be done with the book portion of my classes. I learned a lot but I would much rather learn hands on! So in a week I get to start my internship. I am so stoked about it because I will be working at a PIT BULL RESCUE! I love Pits, I love rescues, and I love obedience training. I just love it all so of course I am going to have the time of my life for the next couple months helping doggies! I have a final to take after my internship but I'm not worried about that. I've aced every single test so I know I'm golden.
 I also have to do 10 hours of volunteer work at a shelter teaching obedience to help their chances on getting adopted. I am going to try and complete these hours at my current job. Only tricky part is we already have professional trainers working there and we aren't allowed to teach the dogs any obedience because we may do it differently than them which could confuse the dog. But the trainers only work with the behavioral ones so I am hoping I can just be assigned a couple of the dogs they won't work with. I'll have to talk to my boss about it but they all love me there so it shouldn't be an issue. 
I am very excited to be done with this certificated so I can someday, after baby is older, get a job at a shelter helping rehabilitate dogs. That's what I want to do with my life and I'm not going to keep putting my dreams on hold. Too many people do that and too many people give them up and I'm not going to be one of those people. I know I was put on this earth to help animals and save them and that's just what I intend to do! 
In the meantime I'm going to work hard on my last remaining months at school, soak up all the information I can and practice practice practice! I've already taught my dog Aida a butt load of tricks but she can always learn more complex ones! So far she knows sit, down, stay, wave, shake, "wait", and roll over. Next I want to work on "Bang Bang" and more manners. Like not freaking out every time I pick up her leash and waiting patiently and calm/submissive before getting in the car. This dog is a terror in the car. Not because she doesn't like it but because cars rides mean we are going somewhere fun like the park or beach. I also need to work on things with the Chihuahuas but they aren't as eager to learn!
