Day 4: Earliest childhood memory

8/31/2016 04:31:00 PM

My earliest memory is when we moved from Knoxville Tn to Ga. I always remember it as a kid and when I got older I described it to my "mother" and she confirmed that the house I was describing along with the events were that of our old home.

It was when we moved and I was 18 months old, I cant remember sitting on the coffee table drinking my juice and watching the movers take our things!

Day 1: Introduction

8/28/2016 04:19:00 PM

So here we go, I chose to do another one of these because I feel this keeps my blog moving and gives people something to read about me. :)

I have an "about me" on my page and that is kind of general so I will tell you a little bit about myself.

I am a mom most importantly, I love my children fiercely and I want nothing but the best for them. I have unique children and each one of them is special in their own way... I am absolutely loving watching them grow and change into their own selves, I can not wait to see where life takes them.

I am a Mimi. Yes, I am a grandmother... We don't use that word though. lol

I am a wife. I love my man more than I can explain. He and I have been through hell and back and while we didn't start out traditionally I can not imagine my life with anyone else. We complete each other, we get each other and he is my best friend. Our road has been rocky but at this point it is smooth. We take life one day at a time (even though HE will tell you I am a life planner) and we don't let the little things get to us. Not many people can say they are best friends with their other half but, I can because I am! <3

I am a friend. If you are my friend, you are my family. I will do just about anything for my friends if it is within my reach. I have been known to go above and beyond to make sure those that I hold close to my heart are ok.

I am a daughter. I love my mother with all of my heart. When I say mother I mean the woman that gave birth to me, not the one that raised me. I love my mama. I don't know where I would be if she hadn't come into my life. I cant even explain how awesome it is to have a parent that loves you without ends...

I have hobbies too!

Photography is my main one and after that I am one crafty ass bitch! If you can dream it I can probably make it. I like to do things with my husband but don't tell him that... I cant have him knowing I love his obsession with guns. LMAO
I love the outdoors! I am happiest at my mamas house where she has just about anything you can dream up!
I love to cook! I have gotten a lot better at it over the years and have seriously considered taking it to more than a hobby. Maybe when my babies are all grown!

I do and loves lots of other things too!

That's not it but that's all I'm going to write for right now. If you want to learn more about me you can also check out my last blog challenge I did HERE (it took me 2 months to do that, I promise to be better at this one)!

Day 30: Your highs and lows for the month

8/28/2016 03:45:00 PM

Well, this wont be exactly right because it took me dang two months to finish this. BUT....

My high would definitely be my children and seeing their faces light up during our vacation! They got to do things they have never done before and the excitement from that was evident! I absolutely can not wait to go back and do it again!

My low would be learning that we have a family member that is struggling. Treys grandmother isn't doing well and that makes me sad... The kids love her so! She's currently still in the hospital having started dialysis so I am praying for her health!



And with this post I finished the 30 Day Writing Challenge! Now on to the 31 Day Blog Challenge, I promise this one will be kept up with!

8/26/2016 09:30:00 AM

1. KARMA. When people that have done others wrong get it right back I can't help but laugh!
2. Those memes that have become so popular lately! I love them and always jump at the opportunity to use one.
3. Jim Carrey movies. That man can make anyone laugh!
4. My kids, they are always doing stuff that makes me laugh... be it good or bad.
5. Sometimes I'm the one laughing when everyone else is being serious. Like if someone does something stupid and hurts themself? Yeah, that's me... laughing it up!

Day 27: Write about something that's kicking ass right now

8/25/2016 12:51:00 PM

OMG! My kids!
They are doing so AMAZING in school and I am so so so proud of all of them! From the oldest to the youngest currently on school I couldn't ask for a better start to this school year!  We are off to a super start and I hope we can keep the momentum!

It's so great to see the kids excited and eager to go to school each day!

30 day writing challenge

Sorry about that

8/24/2016 05:24:00 PM

I missed a few days on my blog challenge... AGAIN!
My family has been in uproar over a sickly loved one and making sure that they are tended to so we have been going crazy.
We also had a small getaway that turned into something longer than we expected. We were able to turn a horrible day into something great for the kids... that's all that maters to me!
Today I got a call from my doctor though, some of my test came back bad so it's off for more testing I go... At least we are finally getting to the root of the problems so I am happy about that! And, my eye infection is gone so I'm estatic for that!!
Kids are back to school and doing good, they havent had any issues at all this year so for that I am a super proud mama!

Until tomorrow....

30 day writing challenge

Day 26: Write about an area in your life you'd like to improve

8/24/2016 05:17:00 PM

Well, I have lots and lots of areas that could use improvement because... let's face it, no one is perfect! However, I would like to improve on the time spent with my kids! We get so busy in the hustle and bustle of life that sometimes it is hard to remember they are only babies for so long. I need to take more time to slow down and enjoy them while I can before it's too late.
I'm not saying I'm a bad mom by any means, I am saying that often times I don't make the effort where I could.
I'll tell them to watch TV when they ask me if I need help with dinner.
I'll go shopping by myself even if they ask to go.
I watch what I want on the TV.
I KNOW some people will say I'm trying to sacrifice too much for my kids but I don't think I am. I think the little's should have choices too and not just follow the herd all the time.
I need to work on this, I need to slow down and take on every single little moment before they are grown with babies of their own (heck, one of them already is)!

Day 25: Think of any word. Search it on Google images then write something inspired by the 11th image

8/19/2016 09:11:00 AM

This is the image I got when I Googled my old photography name...



This was taken at a very good friend of mines wedding.

Sometimes you meet people in life through other people and these people were put into your path because they were on someone else's an you just so happened to cross it. That is what Holly is to me. We did not start out friends, hell... I'm sure she loathed me at on time. But, at the end of the day I was able to see Holly's true self and se was able to see mine. We became great friends and Holly has been there for me and I have been there for her. Holly has seen me at my worst and seen me at my best as I have her, I honestly am  proud of the person she has turned out to be! She is an AMAZING mom to my little friends Wocka, Wild Child and Emma.

We may not talk everyday but she will forever be "Numba 1!"

Oh yeah, she has a blog too... Go read it! http://badmommyadventures.blogspot.com/


For anyone wondering what I shoot with this photo was taken with a Canon 5dMkiii with a 50mm 1.2 lens. .
I also shoot with a Canon 6d and I have an arsenal of glass. :)

Day 24: Write about a lesson you learned the hard way

8/18/2016 05:26:00 PM

Well, there are tons of things I could write about here but... I think I'll go with this one.

I have learned through life that people will not always do for you what you do for them. In fact, I think a lot of people in this world will take advantage of you as fast as they can! I have always been one to put my own self out in order to help a friend or family member... sometimes to the point I endanger my own relationships or well being. I've learned over time that I have to step back and truly evaluate a situation before I offer up my help and throw myself into something.

OOOPS, MY BAD.

8/18/2016 01:07:00 AM

So....

I know that I am a week behind in my blog challenge and it has taken me damn near 2 months to complete but I am DOING IT none the less!

This last week has been CRAZY.... Not only did I have to wait on a new laptop charger to come from Amazon I also came down with some kind of NASTY ASS eye infection! I thought it was pink eye but no, its some kind of eyelid infection! I ended up going to the doctor yesterday to have it looked at and with the medicine it should clear up in no time.
I decided that this month will be the month for change though. I am going to start doing the Bikini Bod Mommy challenge... It is a 90 day workout regimen that I've started before and never finished! It's not so much to lose weight or eat right but its more or less to tone and get my muscles back feeling good and me active again. However, Ill update on my weight loss journey and stuff like that I guess!

I'm pissed, I accidently just deleted the blog I had wrote back to this point so now I have to start all over... DAMNIT, this new laptop is killing me!

Anyway... We don't get cable or internet here at the house, never have... There isn't even a pole that runs near the house with cable on it to hook to. We have been utilizing ROKU's via our hotspot from the cell phones and that's how we watch HULU and Netflix but we do also have a small TV antenna that brings in some local stations. Today though I signed up for SlingTV, I and the kids are so excited about finally being able to watch some shows we haven't seen since we moved! Me and Maddox are some suckers for Chopped and Madalyn sure does love her some HGTV! Not to mention if you prepay for 3 months you get a FREE ROKU! Yeah, FREE! You should check it out!

The kids are doing AWESOME in school! We haven't had one single issue at all and it is going so smoothly this year! That's a change from years past. I absolutely love the school the kids are in though so that is always a plus.

Oh yeah, I know my hair is always a topic of oooohs and awwwwwes... I dyed it purple, its like a grapey purple with a little magenta. I didn't want to go as pink as I did last time because lets be honest, it was HOT PINK! The kids loved it but I cant stand how it turns me and my entire home pink. I will probably go back and put some blue in it as I grows out, I have had a bad itch to cut my hair lately but I keep ignoring it! It is getting so long!

Last but not least in this little update of mine I should mention that we are taking a mini family vacay this weekend. Not sure where we are going yet but, it will be somewhere. lol
We usually just make a trek down to Tybee and at some point venture over to Hilton Head but this time we hoping to go somewhere we haven't been as a family, somewhere new and fresh with new things to discover! I have been thinking about Myrtle Beach... Its not a definite yet though!

Until next time (which I totes promise will be tomorrow)... C YA

Day 23: A Letter to someone, anyone

8/17/2016 10:30:00 PM

Dear Sarah,

I love you, you should always know that and never forget it! I am so proud of the person you are becoming after everything that has stood in your way. We haven't always seen eye to eye and we probably wont in the future (and that's ok) but I am always here for you, NO MATTER WHAT! I know you get md at me over some of the choices I have made that affected you but believe me, I did it for your own good and one day you will see that! You are so amazingly beautiful so don't ever forget your worth... I LOVE YOU! I can not believe that you are 16... It seems like yesterday I held you in my arms at 1 day old... I knew you were destined for great things and just look at you now!

Love,
Your mom

Day 19: Discuss your first love

8/08/2016 10:52:00 PM

Well, that was a LONG time ago.

We met in 7th grade and it was love at first sight. We parted ways in about 10th grade and I ended up at another high-school and, we never spoke again until about 8 years ago. He came back into my life and we were able to become friends, I am so thankful for that.

He played on the football team I cheered for. I remember feeling those butterflies everytine I would look at him and thinking "Oh how I wish he'd pay attention to me." One night he did, it was at an after game party that we had every Friday at Mazzios Pizza. He asked me if he could sit next to me and that was that, we were stuck like glue from there on out.

The rest is history and although some good and some bad I wouldn't change it for the world.

We were so young but I can honestly say he was my first "true love."


And yes, I skipped a day.

Decor

Oh yeah, I moved stuff again!

8/08/2016 10:13:00 PM

So in a previous post somewhere in this blog I talked about how I had things in my kitchen...

(before is on the left- after is on the right)

That hutch is my mother in laws and it has been in her family for AGES, I'm sure if we actually loaded it up to move again it would fall apart. It needs to be refinished in a major way but I want to make sure when I do it retains its originality of the Hoosier grandiose that it is!

If you don' know what a Hoosier is then you just haven't lived.

I like the idea of this shelf more where the hutch was because I am able to actually store my bowls, serving dishes and display my prized possession!


Here is a pano view of the kitchen. Pretty soon there will be new paint and redone cabinets!!!


One more photo of my house for the road... This is my favorite room in it I think!

Day 17: Post about zodiac sign and whether or not it fits you

8/05/2016 07:36:00 AM



Virgo is the second-largest constellation. It spans the 150-180th degree of the zodiac. Under the tropical zodiac, the Sun transits this area on average between August 23 and September 22, and under the sidereal zodiac, the sun transits the constellation of Virgo from September 17 to October 17.
Strengths: Loyal, analytical, kind, hardworking, practical
Weaknesses: Shyness, worry, overly critical of self and others, all work and no play
Virgo likes: Animals, healthy food, books, nature, cleanliness

Virgo dislikes: Rudeness, asking for help, taking center stage

"Virgos are always paying attention to smallest details and their deep sense of humanity makes them one of the most careful signs of the zodiac. Their methodical approach to life ensures that nothing is left to chance. Virgos are often tender but also very careful.
Virgo is an Earth sign, which prefers conservative and organized things, and those dependent on them. People born under the Virgo sign have very organized life, and even if they are very messy, their goals and dreams are put on strictly defined points in their mind.
Since Mercury is the ruling planet of Virgo, this sign has a well-developed sense of speech and writing, as well as all other forms of communication. Many Virgos may choose to pursue a career as a writer or journalist.Virgo is often misunderstood, because of the symbolism of the name of this sign. Virgo experiences everything for the first time. Virgos always want to serve and please others, so they often choose to work as caregivers.
On the other hand, this zodiac sign sometimes can be very critical and overly concerned."
__________________________________________

I was born September 17 so I am a Virgo. When it comes to the listed traits I would honestly have to say I agree with all of it for the most part. For the most part I also agree with the following paragraph... I am extreme when it comes to the smallest details over things and I will get so OCD it isn't even funny. I try to be extremely organized but sometimes I dont end up that way and I think in part it is because I am so detail oriented I end up walking away because it isn't perfect!

Day 16: Something that you miss

8/03/2016 06:38:00 AM

Honestly?
I miss the days of highschool.
They always say those are the best years and while I don't quite agree totally with that I do agree that they were great years. Now, not then! Lol
The issues we thought were so important were minuscule compared to what we deal with as adults... but, oh how we thought our problems were first world.
What I wouldn't give to go back and do it all again with the knowledge I have now. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love my life but how fun would it be!

Freebies

Cheap Movie Tickets?!?!

I cant wait to see the movie I picked out!

Back To School

What the what?

8/02/2016 06:39:00 AM

You might have notice I've been MIA! There is good reason for that though... I've been cleaning, moving things out and around and getting down to the nitty gritty for the kids going back to school. 


It's only 6:30 in the morning here but we go back tomorrow. I let the kids have one last fun night last night and I think I'm probably going to be paying for it tonight. They are STILL awake holding strong! What can I say? I'm a sucker for their little smiles. 

Today will consist of finishing up my cleaning, lots of laundry and probably a few naps!
