Steal his hoodie and his…

shave balm y'all! This is probably like the most unusual makeup dupe out there. I have switched out from buying expensive face primers with a shave balm. Weird, right? Anyways, I first saw this being used this way on YouTube. I thought it was weird and had no interest in trying this out. Then, it came time to buy a new primer. I was not happy with the prices. I usually get the prime & poreless that does not last as long as I would like it to. But, sitting in the back of my mind was the idea to try this out. I am never going back. The shave balm that I am talking about is Nivea Post Replenishing...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

October’s Glam Bag

Hi everyone! It is another Ipsy review. October is almost over meaning Halloween is just around the corner! Are you ready? Like every other year so far, I do not have my costume planned out. So, another last minute costume for me! This month's Glam Bag has a "Black Magic" Halloween theme which I am loving. If you are not familiar with this beauty subscription you can check out my review here. The bag, Seriously, how cute is this?! This will for sure be in my purse for the rest of the month. I love the little pictures. The little ghost with the heart eyes is so cute. The little details are doing something for me. The zipper for the bag even has a ghost on...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

Holiday Season Challenge

For the next three months I want you to write one positive thing that happened to you on that day. You do not have to write a lengthy story but just a couple words or a sentence will do. The point of this is to get you to reflect on the positive of your day. So maybe it was something you saw, something that made you laugh, an event, a scripture, a song, or simply the weather. Whatever it was, write it down. The end of the holiday season you will have three months worth of positivity written down to remember. The next three months can be stressful and hectic for everyone but that is not how it is supposed to...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
