Fashion Friday {This is me}

It's September! Which is Thyroid Cancer Awareness Month! Some of you might already know I am a Thyroid cancer survivor. I am going on 9 years cancer free! That's crazy to think about! 
You can read about my story and how you can self check yourself here 
It is so important to be educated on these things. I had absolutely no symptoms whatsoever. If it wasn't for my Grandma pointing out a large nodule on my neck. I literally thought it was my adams apple. NO ONE ever corrected me! I know crazy right!? Please check yourself all the time and spread the word!
Happy Friday!

{Fashion Friday} Last day of summer

So it's been a minute since I blogged anything. I have no words. I've been spot cleaning carpets, eating my kids leftovers and binge watching tv shows I missed during their original air date. I've just been living life and most days barely making it through. You know those time lapse videos of someone bringing different meals to the table on different days. What about the ones where they fall onto the bed and it's clearly different days. I feel like that is my life lately. It's the day in and day out monotonous routine. Counting down the days til this deployment is over and we can go back to that other family routine! Anyways, my apologies for being M.I.A.

Can you believe summer is over. It's already labor day weekend this weekend and I'm kinda excited honestly. The summers are so hot out here that I'm looking forward to a little more snuggly weather. Some vanilla chai tea with pumpkin spice. Thankfully in Georgia I can still get away with wearing sandals so its the best of both worlds. I feel like Hannah Montana! 
This will probably be the last summer outfit as we move forward into fall.. So please, enjoy!

Fashion Friday {Back to School}

I've had a crazy day of back to school shopping. I literally haven't sat down all day. Woke up bright and early with my little munchkin of an alarm clock. But it's the last few days of summer. I refuse to wake up early. I refuse to wake up before the sun. So I went back to sleep but that threw off the rest of the day of course. Back to school shopping turned into speed shopping. I'm just glad I had a small list from the teacher this year!
One of our favorite things to do before school is to get all the new clothes and then make outfits out of them and then do a fashion show. Since the day got away from us we are going to have to push that to tomorrow. But little miss definitely needed a date with her  mama today. I can't believe I'm going to have a 4th grader. I remember when I was in 4th grade! I got my first little boyfriend, I did cheerleading, I did the school talent show for the first time. I had short hair and bangs. 4th grade was a wild ride! We also didn't have dances we had skate parties in case you wanted to know. 
What are some of your 4th grade memories ?

Fashion Friday

 Summer is coming to an end and I'm kind of happy. I never really realized that I'm the type of person that needs some kind of routine. Too much vacation is a little boring. I start to get antsy to do something more with my time. 
I'm excited for what's coming up in the fall! Instead of only recording two songs it has turned into an EP. I will be headed to LA in September to record the rest of the songs and then everything will be released in the fall. I'm so excited for it to finally come out! I couldn't be more happier! 
Keep following along for release dates and follow me at @ashleyreedmusic

Fashion Friday {Hipster and Podcasts}

So I'm kinda obsessed with podcasts lately. I have learned that podcasts are my jam while doing long trips. I can't even listen music for every long because I still get tired. Which is a big no-no while driving! It makes me daydream about having my own podcast. What would I talk about? What kind of guests could I have on? Would anyone even listen? I just think they are so fun and you can talk about whatever you want. I am a talker! Do you have some favorite podcasts? If you could start a podcast what would you talk about?

Fashion Friday

There comes a time in a bloggers life where the time comes where you don't feel like writing anything. You don't feel like saying anything. You just want to live in the silence for a minute to decompress. I feel like that time has come for me. So with that said. Here's some pictures to look at while I gather my thoughts.....

Fashion Friday {Aphrodite}

Sometimes you just need to kick off your shoes and run around in the grass barefoot. With an impending thunderstorm behind you. It's the simple things that bring you joy! Makes me think how fun summer was growing up. Playing with all my cousins at my grandparents house by the lake. We definitely got into some shenanigans. Things I couldn't think of my kids doing now. Like playing in the gutter barefoot for example.
What types of things did you do as a kid during the summer?
