"Tales of a military girlfriend"
I'm Vanessa. I've made this blog as a sort of outlet. I've found the only good way I can express myself is through words.
I'm just looking for a way to say what I have to say, and hope that in return it turns into something positive. I've spent the last few years on random travels but now have kind of settled and found the man of my dreams. =) My heart belongs to Alec. A soldier of the US Army, and he's everything I didn't know I wanted.
Thank GOD. My first hurdle is done!
Onto goal weight number 2!! 190lbs! And I think it’s going to be SO easy. With the new diet and meal plans, being more energized and doing more (including sex), there’s no way I can fail at this.
I will not only have my dream wedding, my dream body, but my dream life.
I must admit I already feel better and have more energy. I had a whole healthy day and ate what I wanted for my meal. Oh was it horrible lol. Noooooo more super processed foods. Trust me guys, your body can live without it!!
Not only that but the physical exercises that go with it.
Alec and I both need a lifestyle change when it comes to food. And this wedding is a booster for me to stay committed.
And jesus christ does it feel so far away.
By the time it comes around, he will be home a little over three years. He could get deployed again, and there’s no way we could move our venue to a closer date if that happened.

Someday I will die, and haunt you... so Dean and Sam can save u. You + me = bait for the brothers. If I saw you now I’d hug you. I want to befriend you. I would build a treehouse just for you. If I could sing you any song it would be Hakuna Matata. We could talk under the stars. Love, Me (P.S. Stay Awesome.)
THIS IS THE BEST THING I’VE EVER RECEIVED.
I was so excited I hit post before i was even finished!! Pleeeeease come haunt me so we can get some of the bros! =P
Anonymous said: How did he propose?! :D
He took me out to St. Francis Brewery. It’s a restaurant off the Milwaukee Lake Front. Sort of lol.
Well we ordered our food and kind of relaxed, since it was our anniversary. Our food showed up. I was PUMPED. But my food sucked…it was bland. So, (insert bad mood here). I had to wait 15 minutes for my new plate.
We both stuffed our face and discussed his choice of venue for our anniversary dinner and how I expected something more “intimate”, not hey we’re sitting next to a table filled with suburbans finest with their shorts and flip flops. Which I was surprised to see since he told me to “dress nice”.
So needless to say, by the time we get to dessert I’m irritated and ready to just go home. We almost never get dessert because we fill up too much, which I was pretty full.
But Alec made me pick a dessert. Fine. I told him, I want the bread pudding. There’s too much chocolate on here.
His response was like, Well it’s cheesecake.
Me, well it has chocolate and caramel on it and I just don’t like that stuff. I want bread pudding.
Finally he said, fine. I’LL get the cheesecake.
I’m so done by this point. Fine, you can have your cheesecake.
He realizes his hands are sticky from the food he ate so went to the bathroom.
So I’m sitting there…and all of a sudden he’s walking with a plate in his hand back from the bathroom and almost falls into the table, gets down on one knee (mostly) and says, “will you marry me”.
The first words out of my mouth were, “…….WHAT IS THAT?” and then it turned into this..
…with lots of head nodding.
ALWAYS A BRIDESMAID, FINALLY A BRIDE!
But follow it!
*le sigh* well, lets get some ideas so I know what the fuck to look for.
This is the ring that was on the dessert that he proposed to me with.
It’s just a cheap, but pretty, ring.
I get to pick out my own because he was worried I wouldn’t like what he picked. (Because I’m extremely picky when it comes to jewelry cause I don’t wear a lot.)
