Fab Five!

I am Lucky to have a few friends that seems to have been in my life forever! The funny thing is that we did not grow up together as kids and most of us don't live in the same state. Yet we have grown up together as adults and have been their for each other for the good-times, the bad-times, the ups and downs, the funny moments life has given and the sad! I can honesty say with out these peeps in my life i would not be here today!

Now that we are done with college and out in the working world, life has been kinda crazy and we don't see each other or talk as much as we once did. We still find the time to make things work even if its just a text here and a Facebook message there. its the small things that mean the most for it lets us know that we are thinking about each other and if needed we are only a phone call away no matter if is 3am or 5pm. We make the drive to see each other when we can, we make time to talk when the important things come up and we do this because we want to make these friendships last and because we have put in the effort our friendship has  lasted.

The things that mean the most and we want most out of lives are the ones that take the most work but are the most rewarding! I am rewarded with an amazing group of friends and an amazing husband who showed me that i have so much to live for and that life is so amazing! I have my gals who were the best bridesmaids ever and the bestest friends a princess could ask for!

New Year, New state, almost!

hard to believe that come the 19th it will be two months since froggy and i said "I DO"! most days it feels like a dream because i feel so lucky! its been such a long and winy road, tens years in the making!. i know that i have said it before but i will say it again and again because this is what i wanted from day one, even if did not really relize it for my heart know but we did have to take a slight detour just to make sure because one never buys the first dress they try on until 5 dress later the realize the one that they really wanted with already there.

With the new year, the next chapter in my life starts for i am finally making the move to cali, the move that was pose to take place almost 8 years again! i am looking forward to the move and its not like i am going to be alone for i will have my Cali family and the Cali Crew. I know that i am going to miss my family here but its time to really spread my wings and see how far i can truly fly!  

I am not saying that i am not worried because that would be crazy, but i think that its the normal things to worry about! my biggest fear is that the mouse is going to forget about me but i know that i will be seeing her at least once a year so hopefully we will still be as close as we are now! i am sad that i wont see the monkeys first steps in person but at lest we have the technology now to relive moments and record them as they happens.

That is what i am hoping this Blog will be about when i make the move, i really hope that i will do a better of updating it to record the new adventure that is life in Cali!

Halloween 2013

this was a great day and with it being Halloween and a great day, makes it all the more special. the highlights were getting kudos at work for being brave enough to dress up, then being offered a staff spot on TBN, followed by a fun night of passing out candy and hanging with the geek gal and her hubby!

my gals

I really do have great friends we help each other when we are down, we are a shoulder to cry on, a helping hand, a smile on a not so happy day. we are helping each other get back in the workout groove and making each other feel like we can take on the world because we are all amazing!

Monday blues

so the honeymoon is over and its a full week of work, blah. its my goal to get back into writing so i am going to make it my goal to try and do one blog post a day. so if i have any readers be prepared for some crazy randomness. so it seems like most everyone is sick at work which makes for less then fun work days as it seems everyone is out of sick time. so the office is filled with the sounds of peeps blowing noses, hacking up lungs and just plain ache sickness. but it is that time of year so it makes some kinda sense.

we had a lil bit of cold font come though which was nice for it made everything feel more like fall and if we keep our toes crossed, we might have a cooler Christmas which beats an 80 degree Christmas any day of the year. That is one thing i shall add to my list of things i am looking forward to about Cali, the cooler air!

Life is good

I know that it's only been a week, but since the wedding I have find that I am smiling more and in general just feel more happy. It feels like the missing pieces in my life have fallen into place and the puzzle is complete. I know that the next chapter and adventure is starting and that many more puzzles   Will need to be worked but I am feeling up to the task and I know that with froggy by my side we can face anything that comes our way!

the only constant is change

more changes at work and not the good kind. Monday is going to be a tough day but thankful its the weekend so i shall try my best not to worry about it. for someone who does not like change that is all this year has been. some of it has been good, like changing my last name. I am totally enjoying married life and i know that it will have its ups and downs but i feel like we are stronger and can face any storm that comes our way. some changes have been bad, like the ones at work but they are keeping us on our toes and its never a boring day. i am starting to understand change and maybe a part of me is starting to accept it even if i still dont like it. But i am starting to see that change is what makes the word go around!

~I am Mercer Now~

wow, what a week. After being in each other lives for 10 years, on Saturday October 19th 2013 Froggy and I become husband and wife. The few days leading up to the big were some of the crazest yet some of the fun most every. I feel like my close friends and i became even closer and new bonds of friendship were made.

I really dont remember much about the wedding it self, just looking into Froggy's eyes an knowing that he is my soulmate. what i do remember is having fun getting out on the dance floor which is something that i never do. The feeling of love and being surrounded by friends and family. Seeing the open arms of my new family and the bonds of friendship from the Cali Crew. The fact that the Cali Crew has been so accepting since day one really makes things more easy and special for the love me for being me and dont have to put on a face and being someone i am not.

Now that the wedding is over its time to get ready for the next adventure, the big move to Cali in the middle of January. I am looking forward to the change and the new friends. But it will be sad to leave my family behind!

"The End Is the Beginning Is the End"

Monday starts a new chapter in my life as i move on to a new potions in the company. Which is exciting and scary all at once for it means many new changes. The biggest being not doing the job that i been doing for the past 7 years and know like the back of my hands. The job I feel comfortable doing and been pretty good at. This new job has more room for growth and truth be told i am happy to have a job. My new boss does seem nice and has already but some of my fears to rest. So i am not as worried about Monday as i once was but its still scary. But one most remember that the only constant is change!

In other news i have gone back to my Star Trek roots and having so much fun reconnecting with old friends and making new ones along the way. I am feeling much more like myself and really just enjoying being Me!

Froggy and I only have 98 days to go before we say "I DO". Froggy seems to be getting excited about the wedding and he and the rents have come to some kinda of truce i am not sure how long it will last but i shall enjoy every moment of it for the time being!

That is so Geeky

so lot has happened since my last post. I am now 29.3 years old, there are 175 days until Froggy and I say "I DO". Things are more crazy at work and i now have a new friend at work who is helping me work-out so that i can fit back into my wedding dress! All and All life is groovey!

One of my fav Life Day gifts came from my in-town bestie; a TARDIS phone charm. which i like to call my whovian detector. Becuse since i have put it on my phone i have meet so many more Whovians, which has been fantastic! We have gotten the save the date cards in which are so geeky that its not even funny and i am happy that for a lest some part of the wedding we can have the geek flag fly high.

Then today i picked up my mtg 2013 core set (Green of course). Always fun when that happens even though i don't play as much i once did. there is just something about a new deck that puts a smile on my face!

No words

I been wanting to write a new post for a while now, and it seems that i have the words when i have no way to write them down. when i have the time to write them down no words come, its  like looking at the blank page makes me mind go blank. But i think i have the words now so i am going to give it shot. just bear with me!

So much has happened since the new year started, its been a road of ups and downs. Never is the path that  travel a boring one, thank goodness for that. I have done some amazing thing these past few months and it only gets better from here. Just a few weeks ago i shot a gun for the very first time and loved it. I was totally scared but thanks to the words of a new friend able to it pull the trigger and had a blast (we went to a gun range for another friends birthday)!

The wedding plans are coming together and version is starting to take place, but we still have a ways to go. Thank goodness we still have 8 month to go!

the words have failed me now so i am just going to leave this as is!

But you don't look or sound sick!

I have Having chronic bronchitis,  I am the only member of my family who doesn't smoke and yet I am the only one with bad lungs, thank you second hand smoke.  I normally get 3 flairs up a year and end up having to miss 3 days of work. The rest of the year is spent trying to deal with it and spending much of my time feeling like an elephant is sitting on my chest. The thing is i don't look or sound sick (unless i am hacking up a lung), so sometimes its hard for people to understand what being sick means and why i have to spend 3 days out of work. I don't like the fact that i am sick and i hate the meds that i have to take because they make me all loopy and what  not. I am one of the lucky ones because for the most part i do have a normal life and i have a great support group in my friends and family. Its just where some people deal with a monkey on their back, i deal with an elephant on my chest.

No Words!

Sometimes one does not have the word for how they are feeling when comes to Death. I had been following the story of this amazing boy from the UK (thanks to one of my friend) who has been battling cancer and sadly early this morning he lost the fight. The bright spot is that he is not pain free and smiling down on all his loved ones from haven. I am sad for the family's lost and that of those that loved him. It does bring back the feelings of the ones that i have lost and may the be gone that are never every forgotten. The loved ones live on in our hearts and as long as we keep the memory alive, our loved on stay alive.

i have a crazy one. I love my dads side of the family, like crazy. but i never really felt like i belonged. I am the odd one, the space cadet. no one seems to understand me or really every try. The most apparent is right now, only 2 have told me how happy they are for my wedding. The thing is i know that most are upset that we are cohabiting, but they wont come out in say it. Everyone is ooo and ahhing over my cuz wedding which i can understand why and i am so happy for her, for she has a great guy. I am looking forward to hers and seeing the rest of the family. But it hurts to know that some of my family is not that far away they did not even think to call to say Hi or visits. I know that i could call myself but  it seems like i am the one that is always making the first move and most of the time they never answer...such is life.

I am happy about the fact that froggy understands and even tries to get the things that he does not understand, i am so very lucky to have him and his family in my life. His family is so welcoming and just as fun as my moms side. froggys mom welcomed me with open arms, even after i crushed her sons heart. Froggy's family may not totally get me, but they try t understand and go along with the flow!
