Today was a big milestone moment for me… I had my one-month post-op check up with the neurosurgeon and I was so damn nervous about what the results would be.
The last week or so I’ve had a little bit of pain and swelling as well as some bruising along my back that I have no idea where came from. I was so scared that I was going to go in and have the doctor tell me I was the 1 in 3 (Who am I kidding… it seems like I’m always the unlucky 1 in 3 if it’s a possibility!) and was going to have to have the second surgery. While that’s still a possibility of course… at the moment I am finally cleared… well, sort of.

Okay, so my first post isn’t going to be too happy or peppy or fun. It’s real, raw and emotional, just like I’m feeling right now. They won’t all be like this, I promise!
Everyone thinks they know what goes into being a Military Wife, or at least the general idea of what goes on. I, myself, thought I knew what I was getting into when I first married Kevin 8 years ago. Deployments, Field Ops and Training, military gear all over the house. But the truth is, you never really know what it’s like until you live through it. Continue reading “Field Ops and Kids”
As I sit here putting together these images, I can’t help but cry. They are tears of joy, pride, and even a little sadness. Annaliese turned four on the seventh… and now Emalee is eight years old today… Continue reading “Birthdays”

I know that I’ve been gone for quite a while… things around here have been pretty insane. Mix that with the negative comments I mentioned in my post, Shame On Me, and I sort of just stopped writing on here. I let myself focus on being a mom and actually managed to self-publish not one but TWO paranormal romance novels, they are both available on Amazon! (I’m working on the third now!)
But now… I feel the need to get back to my blog. To stop allowing people’s negative thoughts get to me and be myself. I used to have so much fun with Southern Mess Moms and I want that again. I promise that I will have some new content available for you guys soon and slowly but surely get all of the old content organized in a way that you can actually find it again… it’s just going to take me a little time.
There are some pretty awesome things in the works for Southern Mess Moms and I can’t wait for you guys to join me on my Journey to a new me and all of the other fun things that will come along with it!
So…if you haven’t heard of the awesomeness that is Posh yet…well then where have you been?!?
I received a variety sample pack to review from Shaleen, the Posh consultant 🙂
I have to admit…my beauty routine is pretty minimal and honestly I didn’t even know what to do with HALF of the stuff that was in my box! However, when you get your Posh products you get these awesome little cards that tell you all about them and how to use them with the best results!
OMG Beauty products that are idiot…I mean me proof?? Continue reading “#OhMyPosh Review!”
Okay…so the challenge has officially been blown and I sort of want to cry!
I have spent the past 6 days doing my best to avoid computers…light…sound…life in general?
For those that don’t know, I have been fighting massive headaches/migraines for a while now. As of the last three to four months my ‘simple’ headaches have morphed into something that makes it hard for me to function. When my headaches hit my symptoms include: Nausea, dizziness, blurred vision, sensitivity to light-sound-movement, shakes, stuttering when talking (not something I ususally do at all.) and memory issues.
Yep…I know, it’s time to hit a doctor up for some help!
I won’t be able to afford to see a doctor until February…so until then things are just up in the air. I’m not allowed to drive, which absolutely blows! I can’t do much on a computer because the light from the screen causing me extreme pain when my headaches hit (generally several times a day) which means I can’t work on either of my blogs or my book…
I’m just a whiny little thing huh?
Anyways…I suppose I just wanted to drop in and let you guys know what is going on with me and why the blog has sort of been put on hold.
I will do my best to post every couple of days at least and Instagram photos are still coming in regularly 🙂 I do have to take care of Annaliese during the day…no matter how badly I feel.
Thanks for being so awesome and understanding!
