Fashion Friday

 Hey folks the countdown has begun and I'm already losing my mind. I need all your helpful moving tips. You're road trip hacks for the kids. Give me all the info! Overload me because I'm a planner and I need to make my plans so I can have some illusion of sanity. I know there's gotta be some new hacks, new devices to help with the transition, help with travel for the kids. Anything to give me so peace. 

Thank you in advance!

P.S those super cute leopard shows are from Walmart!!

Walmart for the win!!

Fashion Friday

 How is it already November?! There's literally 52 days left of this year. This has been such a crazy year. I started out this year dropping my very first EP in February. It's been a slow and steady pace since then. I have learned that the music business is very slow. It's a constant waiting game. In fact it was until this week that I finally wrote a song for another artist. That sounds so crazy to me. It's definitely a new experience. It's hard to put time and effort into something creative just to give it away to someone else. I'm learning to cope with it. Because that's part of the gig of being a songwriter. At least that's what I've been telling myself. All singer/songwriters do it! Avril Lavigne wrote for Kelly Clarkson, Jessie J wrote for Miley Cyrus. I can do this!! 
Until the next track comes along...... Who knows what the future holds for me. #Dreamsdonthavedeadlines

On a side note. This whole outfit is from Ross!! I can't say it enough. Ross is my jam!! I love cute, on trend affordable fashion. This military wife/artist needs things to be affordable!

Fashion Friday

Fall has finally hit Georgia. It was cold today.. I even wore actual shoes instead of sandals. Which is so crazy because it was almost 90 degrees last night for trick or treating. I even have mosquito bites on my feet. 
It means that I can turn off my AC, have some hot chocolate and snuggle up with some blankets and catch up on all my shows. 
I've been trying to try out some of the new shows for the fall season but only managed to get through Stumptown. Not sure how I am sold on it yet. Instead I've been binge watching the resident so I can catch up. I really like it so far. Any new show suggestions send them my way so I can check them out.

Fashion Friday {I'm moving on up}

Wow it has been such a crazy month. There's been so much going over here. I can't believe we are moving soon. I've been starting to stress. I'm not going to lie. PCS season always stresses me out. I just want to purge almost the whole house to make the transition easier. We have to find a house, we h have to transfer schools in the middle of the year, we have to find a new church. It's different this time with not really being attached to the normal Army. I have no what to expect. The unknown freaks me out a little bit. I'm excited for new adventures but I need a little bit of comfort. The next few months before the move I'm going to really be focusing in on what I want to get out of this next move. There might be some new and exciting things coming up. So stay tuned!

A Walk to Remember

Today is pregnancy and infant loss awareness day. In fact the whole month is about raising awareness about such a difficult topic. It happens a lot more than you think and there's not really an open dialogue about it. Our family has been dealing with it for 12 years now and it's still the same thing. People don't know what to say, how to act, or what to do. They don't know how to be there for their friends or family who have lost a child. Even if you have lost a child whether its from miscarriage, stillbirth or in our case a child who was only 45 minutes old. You may not know how to navigate through your own feelings. They can chance day to day, hour by hour. My advice about it is allow yourself to feel however you are going to feel. There is no right way to grieve. You can't do what everyone else expects of you or even try to please other people through this time. You can only honor your child the best way you know how. For myself I was blessed to find a great support group about 2 years after my son had died that really helped me sort out my own feelings. 

There's also some great events to memorialize your loved ones. I was so glad to come across one in Pooler once a year. Memorial Health puts on a A Walk to Remember every year at Tom Triplett Park. There's a time where people can share and they have hearts set up that you can write your childs name on and tack it to their wall then you take a walk around the lake at sunset and it's just beautiful. 

This years walk to remember will be held at:

100 Tom Triplett Road, Pooler Ga 31322

Fashion Friday {Casual Friday}

Do you ever just have so much stuff on your plate that you don't feel like doing anything? Say anything? Just want to sit in silence without all the noise and chaos. That's the kinda day I'm having so I'm just going to leave this casual fall outfit here. Enjoy!

Fashion Friday {Oktoberfest}

I know its not exactly Halloween yet. But I was feeling the October vibes. All the Halloween movies are playing. Even the weird ones which I got a front row seat to at the nail salon this week. If you haven't seen the old cult classic "Trolls" definitely check that out. But watch it on mute like I did. The weirdest thing I have ever witnessed. 
I've been enjoying pumpkin spice vanilla chai teas, and king size candy bars in preparation for the season. I now just need to attack some decorating in the house with all these pumpkins and I'm good to go. Happy Friday everyone!
