SPICA 5th Annual Cultural Night


I am apart of a club at CSUF called the South Pacific Islander Cultural Association, or SPICA (spee-kah.) Every year we put on a cultural night full of Pacific Islander culture, food, dance, and music. Its such a fun night and something we work towards all year. 

Here's a little slice of what you can look forward too:


If nothing else, come for the beautiful wahines ;)


This is my Senior year, so I will be recognized as a graduating senior as well as dancing in the hula. Nervous? YES. I have only danced once before and that at last year's luau! But as you can see, its gonna be a blast!

We would love for you to join us! It's this Saturday in the TSU Pavillions. Tickets are on sale now for $20 at the Titan Student Union and $25 at the door. CSUF student tickets are free with a student ID.

Drill Weekends.

As apart of his National Guard duties, Torrey leaves for drill one weekend every month.

Negatives:
.Most obvious: Husband is gone all weekend. So lonely.

.If he enjoyed going, I'd be all for it! But he says it can be really disorganized, and with so many budget cuts, they rarely have enough supplies. Not to mention he doesn't get the weekend to relax. 

.All of the man stuff I need him for happens right when he leaves! A super tight jar is always there when he isn't.

.The army loves to time drills in really important times in our lives. He has no choice but to be gone for three weeks this May, missing my college graduation :(

Positives:
.From the pictures he sends me, he seems to have some fun. 

.I get a whole bed and 4+ pillows all to myself. You'd better believe I sleep smack dab in the middle. Sometimes I wake up sideways. Glorious.

.I am so super productive! I get my homework and all the chores done, great workouts, and sometimes I bake new recipes :) I got all of the thank you cards from the wedding done in the two weeks he left in September. When he comes home all muddy from sleeping on the Camp Penalton ground and the house is clean, laundry folded, and I'm just pulling dinner out of the oven, I feel like Super Wife.

.Me time. I spend a lot of time worrying about others.When its me, myself and I all weekend, it's a chance for me to regroup and think about what I need. Usually it's some Yogurtland.

We've got three years left of his contract (pray for no deployments!), and I know how important this point of our lives is. When he has to leave, I always get the strong feeling that I'm being watched over and protected. It's an opportunity for me to grow more independent, and for us to grow stronger.

Absence makes the heart grow fonder, after all.

Handy Husband.

When I say I've got a handy husband, I mean I've got the handiest husband in the entire world.

If you've seen our place, you know its filled to the brim with shelves and lights that he put up when we first moved in. Ikea is his best friend.
Right where he belongs :)

Last week, he decided I needed a new stereo in my car that I could plug my iphone into. Bam. I've got a new fancy stereo with all the bells and whistles.
It flashes pretty colors too.
 He did some magic with some cords the other night, so we can watch those "web only" Hulu shows on our TV, while I watched in amazement.
Who knew you could even do that!

Then I asked him if he could try taking off the handle of my curling iron, since I never use it and get tired of holding it open. I didn't even finish my sentence before the handle was off and the stand put back on!
Hello curling wand. My thumbs are oh so  thankful.

I'm telling you, you've got to get yourself one of these. But not this one. He's all mine.
