Help anyone?

So my yahoo account was hacked once again. This happened in October and now again yesterday. I am so done with yahoo. Everything was on that account and now I have to basically start all over b/c I can't just change the info on all my stuff b/c I can't sign in and verify the change. This included my comments and stuff with blogger :( I am guessing my only option to keep my blog is to make a new one.. I hate this and I do not want to stop blogging or loose any of my followers as well as the blog I follow :(
But I did not make this blog layout, it was made for me for free. With our baby on the way I can't afford to pay someone to make a blog for me. Is there anyone willing to make me a awesome blog for free?
If you are I can't email back through comments unless you leave me a email for me to contact you at.
Or u message me through Facebook. My page for fb is on the side of my blog.
Well off to 1. find a new email that is not yahoo
2. Try to get this baby out

Maternity Pics!

I finally got our maternity pictures in.. I would love some feedback on what you think! As well as I am sure the photographer would love to see what ya'll think of her work. :)
On baby update.. he is still not here :( I am trying very hard to be patient :/ 
Thursday I will be 39weeks and Friday is my next appointment at the dr. The plan there is to once again have my membranes swept. The dr said he will not let me go full term, at the the very least not far past full term. I really hope we can get things going soon. We are trying to get me to 4cm dilated. I am 1.5cm now and last Friday I was 1cm. I am also currently 50% effaced.

Short & Sweet.. but EXCITING!!!

Hello Lovies!

So I wanted to give you guys a update. I am super busy so not a lot of time to blog right now. Well I went to the dr on Friday.. he scraped my membranes but I was only 1cm dilated. I have to be 4cm to be induced or admited to the hospital. Right now I can't get back into the dr til this coming Friday. I plan on calling every day til then to see if I can get in before tho. It is for a 5min appointment for more scraping done and to see if I am dilated more. Since Friday I have been doing MANY "wise tales" to help things along. I hope they are working. Just after seeing the dr I lost my "mucas plug" and I have been having contractions. Some painful and  some are not. I have had "prodomal" or "false" labor 2 times. Which was where my contractions were 3min or less apart, very painful, to point I was getting teary eyed. But when I said okay I give in I am going to the hospital, they completely stopped. So our lil boy likes to "monkey around" and play games. I use monkey since his theme is Safari. :) Anyways, I am very impatient. So the only myth or wise tale I have not tried is Caster Oil. I bought some. But I am waiting a few days before I give in and try that.

Well Hope everyone is doing well and safe!

Please pray or whatever you do that he comes out soon. We really want him to be born before Jan 31st.

Calling All Military Wives, Gf, Fiancée, etc & a story

Okay first off If you are a military wife, girlfriend, fiancée, etc that is interested in helping out another please comment or email me. If you leave a comment PLEASE make sure you have it set up where I can email you back. I will give details to those of you who ask for them and you can decide from there if you would like to help in anyways. Thank you! 

Now on to other subject. 
January 15th marked two years since I left Florida and got on a plane and moved to Washington State. I was 18 years young. Left EVERYTHING I knew, friends, family, my entire home & life, to move 3,000 miles away. I knew that I wanted to start over. I knew I needed it as well. I was not getting along with my parents pretty much at all. I was dealing with a lot of personal stuff that really no one knew about. I was severely loosing myself. One of my very good friends, Chandra aka C, was living here. I had helped her and her boyfriend move from FL to Wa in November, so just 2 months before.  It was a amazing trip. It was my first cross country drive. First time seeing pretty much anything other than Florida and Indiana. Well I had finally ended things with the guy that I really needed to not be with and was so broken from it all.. that C offered to pay for me to move here. To help me out and she missed me. :) Well She also told me of a guy that I just had to get to know. I was VERY skeptical at first. But finally I was like okay why not. We started texting, both agreed only looking for friendship. We talked through text and internet for a month before I let him talk to me on the phone. We quickly fell in love.  Neither of us wanted long distance and both of us were scared due to being severely hurt times before. He was stationed in Ft lewis, which is how my friend knew him. So now I had C and Him wanting me to move. This guy was stationed for a year at my home town. We had many mutual friends but yet we never met. Now here we are after the army took him away from my town talking and falling more in love each passing day. I finally decided that I was gonna move. Jan. 15th, 2009 I got on a place and took a HUGE leap of faith.  I got off the plane very late that night to my friend C and her boyfriend waiting for me.. then off to the side was a tall, handsome man, with a red rose, very nervous there to surprise me as well. Then Jan 16th, at 3:12am we started dating officially.  A few weeks went by & we decided to get married. He asked my dad through webcam, l0l.  My parents approved very well. They had gotten to know him. Well our engagement was official Feb 14th, 2009.  We then tied the knot on April 6th, 2009. Then again on August 22, 2009.  My life has changed so much with these last 2 years. I met the man of my dreams. I got introduced to military life. I got married. Moved 4 times. Got pregnant. Have had good jobs. Met some awesome ppl., made some new friends. I have changed some of my views, beliefs, goals, and so much more!! 
It is amazing to see how much has changed. As well as scary to see how fast things can change, with a blink of a eye and one move or change etc can change your entire life. I do not have any regrets and I praise the Lord for my life, all my blessings. I am thankful for C giving me the happy ending with my husband and my son~! 

My hubby took me out tonight (it is 1:08am so technologically last night). It is even more specially not just b.c it was to celebrate our 2 year anniversary of being together.. but it the last time we had a date as a couple. Since our son will be here soon! I will update on baby soon!! This post is long enough now. Thank you VERY much for reading!~

When God Created the Military Wife

When the Lord was creating a military wife He ran into His sixth day of overtime. An angel appeared and said, "You're having a lot of trouble with this one. What's wrong with the standard model?"
The Lord replied, "Have you seen the specs on this order? It has to be completely independent but must always be sponsored to get on a military installation. It must have the qualities of both mother and father during deployments, be a perfect host to 4 or 40, handle emergencies without an instruction manual, cope with flu and moves all around the world, have a kiss that cures anything from a child's bruised knee to a husband's weary days, have the patience of a saint when waiting for its mate to come home and, have six pairs of hands."
The angel shook her head slowly and said, "Six pairs of hands? No way." The Lord answered, "Don't worry; we will make other military wives to help. Besides, it's not the hands that are causing the problem, it's the heart. It must swell with pride, sustain the ache of numerous separations while remaining true, beat soundly even when it feels too tired to do so, be large enough to say 'I understand' when it doesn't, and say 'I love you', regardless.
"Lord," said the angel, gently touching His sleeve. "Go to bed. You can finish it tomorrow." "I can't," said the Lord. "I'm so close to creating something quite unique. Already it can heal itself when sick, on a moment’s notice it will willingly embrace and feed total strangers who have been stranded during a PCS move and it can wave goodbye to its husband understanding why he had to leave."
The angel circled the model of the military wife very slowly. "It's too soft," she sighed.
"But tough," the Lord said excitedly. "You cannot imagine what this being can do or endure."
"Can it think?" asked the angel. "Can it think?! It can convert 1400 to 2 p.m.," replied the Lord.
Finally the angel bent over and ran her finger across the cheek. "There's a leak," she said. "I told you that you were trying to put too much into this model." It's not a leak," said the Lord. "It's a tear." "What's it for?" asked the angel. "It's for joy, sadness, pain, loneliness and pride." "You're a genius," said the angel.
Looking at her somberly, the Lord replied, "I didn't put it there."
