Head in the clouds again...Castles in the sky!

  I'm all about positive thinking, and asking the universe for whatever it is you desire... honestly, it's gone a long way in my life!
  Who would have imagined that I'd have 2 horses, I'm dreaming of 2 more (no seriously). I've gotten every platform, career choice, squadron, etc, etc that I have wanted in the Marines- even when I didn't have the SLIGHTEST clue what I was getting myself into. (I didn't even know what a "Prowler" was when I chose it to work on for the next 4 years...)

   This time though, I'm really putting myself out there to our Heavenly Father, the Universe and every other "greater being" out there that wants to throw well wishes my way.... 

I've pitched hissy fits, begged and pleaded not to have to live in the barracks when I return home to Cherry Point. I have a 2-bedroom apartment's worth of belongings in a storage unit, and an assortment of pets scattered up & down the eastern United States! (You all are wonderful, you really are! You know who you are! ;) 
They can't possibly make me reside in the "bricks", can they?!?! Ugh...they can & they plan on it... So I'm going to reapply for BAH, until they say yes. And they will!

BAH, for you silly civilians, is Basic Allowance for Housing, extra money every month permitting you to live out in town, which also comes with BAS, Basic Allowance for Sustenance, grocery money so you don't have to eat at the chow hall (Yuck). Normally these benefits are only granted to those of the betrothed persuasion. Well screw that crap, a girl shouldn't need a ball & chain on her finger to own her own home! Oh right, I want to buy a house....:

When they do approve my BAH, I'm going to try buy a house. This house, on the cutest 4.7 acres I have ever seen! Yes, my insanity level did just go through the roof as a matter of fact!

It may be a modular home, but I've lived in trailers before and look how I turned out! (No comments from the peanut gallery!!!)

    Anywho, when I announce things aloud, they become real in my little world, so I'm sharing, even if only to my little crowd of blog followers for now! You have to agree, aside from fuchsia, lavender & coral colored walls [that you can't see because they're too atrocious to post], it's fantastic!
   When I see these photos, I see 4 acres of land to let my ponies run free...with a milk cow (already went to Wikipedia for instructions!) and chickens to lay fresh eggs every day(even picked out a coop!) heaven on earth!
Part of "the yard"! That's a stream running through the middle of the property...
A cute country kitchen!
A Florida Room. This is how I know it's meant to be...
Princess Gracie can even have her own acre to rule! Bonfires anyone?!

So, now that you know what's weighing on my mind, please cross your fingers for me! I never do as much investigating, researching and studying as I do when I desperately want something. And this is one of those times.

Look out world!

PS I'm not disclosing the sale price, but you can guess! hehe


  1. Good luck Lissa! I'm rootin' for ya!!! Don't worry, my house had coral and violet walls when we first got it too, and look at it now! It may still look like crayola exploded in it, but at least they are pretty crayon colors :)

  2. P.S. Yay for figuring out how to post pictures!! :)

  3. Crayola?! Who are you kidding?! Your house is gorgeous!

    I was SO glad the pictures worked today, didn't do anything different! Stupid Afghani-internet!
