I’m not really sure how to start this post. I could say something witty, something inspiring but nothing is coming to me.
When I write it helps me deal with things. But this “thing” is a big deal.
Women usually have a feeling they are pregnant. If nothing else they usually have an idea once they miss their period. Finding out I was pregnant was not that simple.
Surprise! We are pregnant!!
Same sex marriage…..oooohhh weee what a hot topic right now! It is something that will be debated for years to come.
Last weekend was filled with events, family, and of course stress. However, Savannah Rose had a wonderful party and it made everything so much better!
My faith is important to me. Faith is important to a lot of people in Eastern Kentucky. However, sometimes people can go overboard when it comes to their faith on social media.
Eastern Kentucky…..the land of poverty. Also the land of memories and beauty.
Clothes shopping can be expensive and a major headache. I hate the whole process. However, when I find a good deal I am like everyone else and get excited.
Everyone LOVES free stuff….I sure do ;). Well guess what? I have an awesome giveaway for you!
Do you find it difficult to find things your kids will eat? Look no further I have a kid friendly meal that your kids will love….tater tot casserole!
Groceries are expensive! It’s a terrible feeling going to the grocery store and paying a fortune and only getting a few things. Well guess what? This past weekend I fed my family of six for an entire weekend for less than $50!
Believe it or not I have some very weird tendencies…..if you know me well then that won’t be a shock to you. Continue reading
I have been blessed to have a very interesting life up to this point. I have been able to do things and go places that most people will never get to in their lifetime.
Yes you read correctly…I owe thanks to my ex-boyfriend for treating me like crap.
Weddings are stressful. Period….end of story. There is no getting around the stress that comes from what is supposed to be the best day of your life.
Being a stepmom is an amazing and rewarding experience. But I have to say it is one of the most difficult and emotional things I’ve ever went through. Nothing is ever perfect……..what fun would it be if it was?
Oh I love a good southern sayin’! I’ll tell ya there are some real humdingers out there. Without these sayings our conversations would be dull :).
Minecraft….Minecraft….Minecraft. My kids are obsessed! They eat, sleep, breath, and live for that game. I am waiting for them to get over this phase but it’s not looking good.
Getting older….two words most women dread. I know women who have absolutely had a breakdown because they were turning another year older. Why? Getting all tore up and sad won’t make you any younger (psst-those worry lines make you look older). Just think you only have to do three things in life….live, die, and pay taxes. However, they all come with getting older!
How did you spend your holiday weekend? We spent ours with a cookout, fireworks…..and family, family, family. I sure can’t think of a better way to celebrate!
This recipe is an all time favorite of my entire family (except my baby brother-he doesn’t like corn). Anytime we have a pot luck, family gathering, or birthday party….this is always my go-to dish. It’s so easy and ridiculously good.
My kids even ask for it at home, “Can you make some of the ‘corn stuff’ for supper?” My husband will eat it like it’s going out of style. My sister will go buy the ingredients so I can make her some while she visits. I try to make it as often as I can since my family of six likes it so much. It’s cheap and that’s always a plus!
Picture this: hair pulled back in a bun…possibly soaking wet…and no makeup. I have just described how I look 85% of the time.
Who am I trying to impress? I have already snagged my handsome husband…..I could care less about what other people think about me. I may generally look like a hot mess but you will never see my kids that way!
Yesterday my husband and I celebrated our one year wedding anniversary.
I love my husband more than anything in this world but like other couples we have had our issues. It’s easy for couples to have a “perfect” marriage on Facebook or Instagram. However, there is no such thing as a perfect marriage. Couples disagree, fight, argue and sometimes just don’t like each other.
Yes you read correctly. There was a penguin in Breathitt County, Kentucky! One of the penguins from Madagascar took another side trip and ended up in Jackson, Kentucky.
Okay…..that may not be correct but it sure sounded funny. There really was a penguin in Jackson but it didn’t talk and was never stranded on an island with King Julien.
