MilSpouse Blog Hop =)

Hello All!! I found out about this blog hop through Riding the Roller Coaster and I thought it was a great idea, so I decided to participate.
So, a little about me...........
My name is Danielle Marie Hampmire. I am 28 fixin' to be 29, and I decided that the clock stops there. I am a daughter, sister, best friend, friend, mother, and a Pharmacy Tech student. I love tanning, getting my nails done, and just being a girl . I curse like a sailor (I am trying to cut down, believe it or not). I love slushees from Sonic, and I am addicted to General Hospital everyday. 
Now for a little bit about my family:
I am married to my best friend and the love of my life, Christopher Hampsmire (a Sgt. in the U.S. Army). We have been married since January 26th, 2002, but we have been together since November 5th, 1999. Together, we have faced three deployments, and two PCS moves. I love him more than life itself, and there is nothing that him and I can't face together. Our greatest accomplishment together, however, is them.....
These are our daughters Megan is 8 and Madisyn is 2. They are the light of our lives. 
Well, there you have it. My family is the core of my existence. I strive everyday to be the best mother and wife I possibly can be. I hope you enjoy my blog. I don't post nearly as often as I would like to, but I will try to work on that, I promise!!!!

Been Out for FAR too long..............

Hey Guys!!!
 I know I have not blogged in what seems like forever, but the truth is, I have. I have blogged quite a bit lately, but I have been keeping them private. Maybe one day I will publish them, maybe I won't .
We have had a lot go on in the Hampsmire house lately. We have had holidays, and birthdays, and times when I thought that the next time I published something,I would be single. However, that is not the case. My husband and I are doing great at the moment. I have a new found respect for him and what he does.I love him more than words could ever describe.
I am getting ready to go in for Gastric Bypass ssurgery sometime in April or early May. I am excited as all get out, but scared as hell at the same time. So I will be blogging a lot about my journey with that whole process.
Anyway, I just wanted you guys to know that I am still here. I intend to get back to blogging (and publishing) at least a couple times a week. For now though, my husband is on hos way home from ten days in VA and I need to get this God-forsaken house clean. LOL
I WILL talk to you later.

PICTURES....And An Award

Alright guys, here are the pictures I have been promising for weeks. First up.... Halloween!!! We had a flapper and a clown running around this house. In my opinion , they were adorable, but I will let you decide for yourself. So here it goes....


My little Clown....



And again.....I Love her cheesy smile!!


My pretty little flapper.....


What a cutie!!


The day after Halloween we went and had amazing family pictures taken by Sara Niebling of Sara Niebling Photography!! She is incredible!! And not very expensive at all. Here are a few of our family pictures....









And now to the second part of this blog..... I was given an award by Amy over at The Undomestic Army Wife , and now I have to pass it on to some one else. So without further ado, here it goes....


Rules:

                 1: Why the person who nominated you is a "Bad Ass Bitch"
Because you can throw any situation at her, and she will just take it and run!!!


2: Why you are a "Bad Ass Bitch"
Because I don't give a damn what people think about me. I will say what I have to say and if you don't like it...... oh well.

3: why the person you are nominating is a "Bad Ass Bitch"?
Because she is going through a deployment with her head held high and not taking shit from anyone.


4. Then nominate 1 person you think is a "Bad Ass Bitch"
I nominate Jessi Faye over at Heads Carolina, Tails Iraq?


So there you have it everyone. I have more to say, because there are things going on here. I will write more about that in a day or two.

TONIGHT!!!!!!

Tonight's the night I personally have been waiting for for months and months. Ever since I fell into the black hole we call "The Twilight Saga"., I have been waiting for New Moon to come out, and here it is. Tonight. Midnight. I will be with my best friend watching what I am sure wil be an amazing movie. But before that we are actually gonna go see Twilight on the big screen too... I know, "Damn, girl!! Obsessed much??" Yes. Yes, I am.
I know that I have been lousy about posting lately, and I really am sorry. So here is a brief run down of what has been going on here lately.....and I still owe you guys pics and I need to pass my award on... All will be done, I promise.
Here is the rundown.... Hubby is in Texas for training until two days before Thanksgiving, and then he goes back to Texas for another two weeks. I love pre-deployment trainging....it's friggin' amazing *said with extreme sarcasm*. I am almost done with this term of classes and psychology is whopping my ass. Although to be honest....next semester the course load is worse. Constitutional Law.....Community Oriented Policing...Oye, eventually it will all be worth it. The kids are great. Megan is.....well Megan. She is pretty much amazing, but can drive me nuts all at the same time. And then we have Madisyn, who (lately) is the world's biggest pain in the ass, but she's two. And that is what I keep telling myself. LOL I closed my first PartyLite show. It was pretty nice. I made my goal, so my kit was free....sort of. I had to spend $75.00 to make my goal, but I did it. And in doing so.. I got a $350.00 kit for free and an additional $125.00 in free products. So basically, I got $475.00 in free stuff for spending $75.00 not too damn bad if I do say so myself.
Lately I have been thinking alot about my marriage, and I have recently had an epiphany. I can't go into it right now (because I don't have time) but basically, I have an amazing husband!!!!!! I will elaborate more on that in another post.
Anyway, that is us in a nutshell. Not too much longer guys, and I will be back in full force. Promise. =)

Okay guys, it has been forever since I have blogged, and I sincerely apologize for that. Seriously, nothing noteworthy has been going on, so I just haven't written. I guess I just don't want to bore you with my mundane life. LOL Anyway, today is my starter show for PartyLite, I am offically a consultant now!! I am soo excited about this. I recieved my kit the other day in the mail, and it is beautiful......lots of gorgeous smells, and beutiful decorative pieces. So, I will let you know how that goes for me.
I won an award during my writer's block period from Amy over at The Undomesticated Army Wife gave it to me, and tomorrow after all the madness from today's schedule dies down, I fully intend to pass it on.
Also tomorrow, I will be posting Halloween pics.....extremely late, I know. We had a flapper and a clown in this house on Halloween, and they were both beautiful. I also had some gorgeous family pics taken that I will be sharing with you as well, so stay tuned.
Again, I apologize for being M.I.A. for the last three weeks, but I just haven't had anyting interesting to say. So look for a long blog tomorrow (or several short ones) with details baout how my party went, an award, and several pictures!!Tak care and be blessed!!

One more thing... My heart and prayers go out to the families in Ft. Hood. What happened there last week was nothing short of a colossal tragedy, and it sickens me that it happened here....on our soil. I have many opinions about what happened, but in this case, I am going to keep them to myself....(Don't get used to that, it doesn't happen very often.)

A New Project

So, I have decided that I want more!!! I love my kids and my husband, and I love being able to stay home with them, but I want more!!!So, I have decided to become a PartyLite consultant. I am super excited about this, because I will be able to stay home with my babies, and make some extra money. I am not doing this to get rich by no means. I just want to feel like I am contributing more to the house. I am also excited about this business venture for another reason.... I will be working with my older sister. She is a consultant out in Tennessee, and she would be my sponsor. So I will be working kinda close with her, well as close as I can considering she is in another state. LOL This will help build a stronger relationship between me and my sister, who wouldn't be excited about that?
It is kind of funny how it all happened. I was supposed to be throwing a catalog party at my house for my sister. What that means is that I would get a bunch of my girlfriends together and have a party without my sister. But I recieved the stuff in the mail yesterday and started looking over it, and a light turned on........hello opportunity!!!!!! So I called Rachel (my sister) and told her that I was interested, and that was it. I will be getting set up in the next few days, so I will keep you all posted. I would love some support, and online orders..hehehe. I will post all my info and website stuff in the next few days so you guys can be looking for that!!!!
Well, that is all I got for now, but it is only 9 a.m., and I have an assload of errands to run today. In the rain. With a toddler. Something tells me, this won't be my last post for the day. :)
