Why couldn’t the ultrasound tech tell you anything?

The ultrasound technician was a civilian at a Naval Medical Hospital- and the procedure for going over any sorts of test results is to do it only with your primary care provider/ObGyn themselves. So the technicians have to sign agreements as to not go over any of the technical information. Some of them don’t even know all of what they are looking at- which is another reason they leave it to the doctor to go over the results.

Isn’t that so jacked up?

  2. 0to10k training

These are the other flowers my husband has given me. The cotton ball shoved in the center of the rose is what hold the essential oil- and I haven’t had to add any to it at all- and it still smells like roses after all this time!
The second is the tulip he handcarved for me with a pocket knife. <3

I’ll love you until the last one withers…

My husband surprising me with a bouquet of paper flowers he made me, makes me not only happy, but it also makes my heart melt. <3

Aside from a few bouquets of tulips (which are my favourite flowers) most of the flowers he has given me, are not real. The first was an absolutely gorgeous metal rose. It was handmade (not by him) and the petals were anodized to be pink- and there’s rose essential oil dripped in the center and the scent has lasted 7 years!! And still smells! Then he carved me a tulip out of a piece of wood. <3 And now these gorgeous paper flowers! <3

Tagged by Val of FatGirlGetsFitAtLast

Name: Tabby (Whitney)
Birthday: September 14th - soon! :D I’ll be 25!
Favorite color: Blue (like Nightwing’s uniform! <3 )
Lucky number: 16 
Height: 5’ 2”
Talents: Cooking and baking! :D Ummmm…singing? And I like to draw but I wouldn’t say it’s a talent of mine? I don’t know ‘talents’ is a strange word to me.


Last dream you remember: Last night all I remember from my dream is that my brother-in-law was hiding in my closet, and I thought he’d go away, but when I woke up he was asleep in my closet? It was so weird.

Can you juggle: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA no.

Art/sports/both: Art. Hands down. I love watching others create, I love drawing and creating things my self- I love it. I love watching creations turn from thoughts and ideas to finished works- the inbetween is where the magic lies.


Do you like writing: Yup! I’ve been working on a mafia book for years now- but I need a Neil Gaiman to my Terry Pratchett if I ever want it to be as good a finished product as my idea of it is.

Do you like dancing: I do! SYTYCD always makes me cry at one point or another, I love watching dancing and I use to take ballroom dancing (Salsa and West Coast Swing). Swing is my favourite! Jordan Frisbee and Tatiana Mollman are HUGE inspirations for me! And Twitch?! LOVE HIM!


Do you like singing: YES! I sing often. <3

Fantasies: I’m not sure I understand this question? My fantasy life I guess would be to have a tiny home (on the larger end of the scale- like 300sq ft, but instead of being mobile have it on my own plot of land where I grow veggies and raise chickens. <3

Dream vacation: The Fairy Pools in Scotland. <3

Dream wedding: Somehow, to have the wedding parties entire outfits, be Superhero themed. Like glammed out hero inspired bridesmaid outfits, groomsmen outfits, everything. That’d be cool.


Dream pet: An Alaskan Klee Kai! 

Dream job: It’s a secret!!! But I do have something wonderful planned. Got a lot of work to-do before my…company?…can be a reality- but it would help SO many people!


Favorite song: Can’t pick a favourite! But the song I listen to the most right now is Hideaway by Kiesza


Last song you heard on the radio: Hahahahaha Hideaway by Kiesza

Least favorite song: ANYTHING BY PET SHOP BOYS OMG NO. Go West makes me so angry.


Least favourite album and artist: Robin Thicke and all of his albums.

Preferences

Guys/girls/both: Both (And genderqueer, and trans- everyone. I like everyone. But preference wise I am also like a 5 on the Kinsey scale so the fact I ended up married to a dude and have two kids is pretty much a miracle.)

Humorous/serious: Humorous, for sure!

Taller/shorter: No preference at all.


Biggest turn-off: A lot of what Val said actually- too serious, too controlling, anger issues, judgemental, bronies, etc.

Biggest turn-on: Optimistic, caring, thoughtful, remembering the little things, morning voice ;P

I’d LOVE to tag vanilladreads, jessjustis, whereismypeanutbutter, and gottagethealthy

Isaiha&#8217;s snack!!Sargento Colby Jack cheese sticks wrapped in Applegate Farms Blackwood ham (Applegate doesn&#8217;t use nitrates, nitrites, preservatives- and it is a Step 1 animal protection company)And daikon chips!!!!!!The fries were good (way better than the Cauliflower fries I made a good while ago) BUT OMG THESE CHIPS!! Crisp, GREAT flavor, They make me think of &#8216;kettle potato chips&#8217;. I seasoned them with himalayan salt and paprika. Isaiha ate these with much more enthusiasm than he did the fries. He even tried to steal his dad&#8217;s chips cause Mat was asleep when dinner was ready! :D

Halluomi is cheese right? What’s Daikon?

Yup! Halloumi is a cheese, and when you grill it up in a pan, instead of melting it gets a lovely crisp brown outside that is delicious! And 

Daikon is a radish is a mild flavoured winter radish and is native to Southeast Asia. But most local Asian grocers, Whole Foods, and Trader Joe’s carry them.

It’s got a super low glycemic index compared to potatoes, and low carb count, again, compared to potatoes.

They look like this:

SOOOO DELICIOUS!!!! 

*Made some &#8216;French fries&#8217; out of Daikon 
*Grilled some Halloumi and it was just as wonderfully delicious as everyone said it would be!!!
*Mat and I went to whole foods and we got some organic grass-fed ribeyes, and he cooked them to perfection. I always like when Mat makes steak as we don&#8217;t have it often- but these were wonderful!!
*And I made a garlic herb butter sauce to dip it all in!!! Also not pictured here we had made a large salad that will last us from last night&#8217;s dinner to about Wednesday. :)

YUM!!

The only problem with having gone back to my natural color is that it makes me look much paler than I thought I was.
I swear that I do go out in the sun. I am not a vampire. I just collect freckles.

You look beautiful! I love your skin … looks like porcelain. Just perfect.

I agree with Val, you look radiant! Your skin is so beautiful! &lt;3
