TBR: September

CAUTION: YOU MAY NOT BE ABLE TO PUT SUCH LISTED BOOKS DOWN WHICH CAN CAUSE NOT GETTING ANYTHING DONE. You have been warned. Listed here in this blog post are all the books that I think you should read this September. These books are perfect for late night reading in that cozy spot of yours. Some of these books I have read recently but some of them I will be reading right along with you in the upcoming month. This list consumes of a grumpy old man, a magic telephone, finding God’s best in the most unlikely places, and a collection of mommy essays. These are all just good for the soul type of books. Happy endings are my favorite....Read More

The Fleming’s Went Honeymoonin’

Guess what we did? WE WENT ON OUR HONEYMOON. (it only took us eighteen months to get our butts there) Since we got married it has always been our plan to go to Lake Tahoe for our honeymoon but life always got in the way. So, we held on to that “honeymoon stage” of our marriage until we were able to make the trip. Eighteen months later we finally made it. This was also our first time since we married that we have went on a vacation that it was just the two of us. I did not realize that until we got there when I started to miss our couple friend that we usually go on all vacations with....Read More

Not Normal

My husband came home on Monday with our gifts for this year's Birthday Ball. I had asked for a shelf to be put up in our hallway to put these gifts on display and my husband told me no. The reasoning behind this no was that he did not want to do that at this house as if we were leaving soon. Keyword is the as if part of that sentence. We will more than likely be leaving soon but there is no such thing in plan yet. So why not hang the dang shelf? There is no more work to be done in our house, no change to be done, no new to be bought because of the possibility...Read More

The perfect gift for him

Trying to find the perfect inexpensive gift for men is the hardest thing that you will probably do this holiday season. You can ask but they won't tell you or they nicely plead for nothing. I have found such gift that I am sure any guy would appreciate. I hope this works out for the ladies searching. It a wallet insert! I wanted to get Jonathan something very different for our one year anniversary. I wanted it to be something manly enough that he would want to carry it with him which seemed impossible. Looking through the internet I found the perfect gift. I really do not think I will ever find a better gift for him.  I found it on Etsy. It is...Read More

Sunday Thoughts, October 9th

I know I have not been at this very long BUT whatever just go with it. Blogging is such a fun learning experience about yourself. I have been complimented by so many about my writing and I sit there and laugh waiting for the punch line to their joke. None of them were joking and now I have let it all go to my head. Thanks guys. In all seriousness, you all are just fueling me to want to write about everything and giving me the confidence to do so. I cannot wait for everyone to read what exactly goes on this pretty little head of mine, Stay tuned. Regardless of my lack of creativity I knew that I wanted this to...Read More

Sunday Thoughts, October 2nd

The sermon from last Sunday has been something that has been on my mind a lot lately. Towards the end of that sermon our pastor mentioned that he woke up that morning with a feeling that people of his church are in some kind of battle. A battle of addiction, grief, loss, or anything in that nature. He then asked for those that are battling with some kind of emotional or physical battle to stand up so him, along with everyone else in the church, can pray for them. Jonathan, eighty percent of the attendees, and I all stood up. I was not expecting that many people to be standing up with me. I almost did not want to stand up because...Read More

Sunday Thoughts

As you may have read before I am your typical military spouse. Read here. My husband had made the gracious decision to re-enlist and because of this I decided to put myself out there and get more involved in the military community. If this is going to be my life for a while why not, right? Right! I got involved by volunteering with the unit's family readiness program. I won't go into too much detail of what this program is because it is beside the point for this blog post. But it is basically a resource and referral program for the families within the unit. I was appointed as a Family Readiness Assistant in the beginning of the summer. With the title...Read More
