Tonight with the day winding down, I am surrounded by the ones that I love as well as the ones that love me. My husband, my son, even my dog and cat are curled up around me and it’s nights like these that I really count my blessings. I am reminded everyday that I am… Continue reading Nights Like These…
Well, unfortunately I wasn’t about to drive to our local farmers market in this weather but thankfully our regular store had the things to get us started. I’m asking for help! I need easy and cheap vegan recipes for the whole family (mostly because of my picky husband). Everything so far I have found doesn’t… Continue reading Progress
Well, in the wonderful Washington State, the weather is DISGUSTING. It is currently 40° outside and windy and raining. Which of course means it’s the perfect day to go grocery shopping. Honestly I was going to put it off until the weekend, but baked potatoes soup sounds like heaven. So this grocery trip marks the… Continue reading Mission Day 1
Well, after our trip to Texas things got really crazy. Between my husbands work and things around the house it was just hectic. Ontop of everything else school also became a handful. Nonetheless, I am BACK. So happy about that fact as well. I have two missions for the next couple of weeks ahead. Mission… Continue reading FINALLY Back

Tuesday morning we packed up our stuff got in the car headed toward the airport. Unfortunately we had to say goodbye to my husband before… Continue reading CRAZY Couple of Days
For anyone wondering, I call Maceon Meep. It is because when I look at him I really just do not know what to say other than “Meep.” Honestly, I never understood how moms could just stare at their babies all day, but he has got me hooked.
Well according to my almost dead cell phone it is….12:40 AM. Before asking, yes my eight-month-old son is now sleeping through the night. However, I am not. Instead, I am very awake with the full realization that still ONE of my toenails does not have fresh paint on it because like most things I forgot to repaint the smudged pink color.My husband and son are sound asleep in bed with no worries in the world, and although that is how I prefer things, it also sucks being the only one NOT snoring. Even our husky/shepherd mix got in on the snoozing action.
Let me give a little back story before I get ahead of myself. My husband and I met through some strange circumstances, but it did not stop us from falling head over heels for each other. A little bit after getting married we decided to have our son since we both had always wanted a family and children. Fast forward to June 2016, we had our beautiful son Maceon, who stole both of our hearts. Three weeks after he was born the Army decided it was time for us to move from Texas to Washington. Now I have nothing personal against Washington, but being born and raised in Texas made the move hard. We have taken it in stride though and even I, the person against cold and wet, am starting to warm up to the place.
Fast forward seven months, two sleep regressions, getting sick and my littles first tooth, you end up here where I have learned to sleep with my eyes open and still take care of both of my loves. Every day I wake up more blessed than the first, and it makes me one proud wife and mother.
