Fashion Friday {Mental Health Day}

 This week we had international mental health day. I wanted to just share what I posted on the day. 

"I wasn’t going to post anything until a conversation with my brother proved that people really believe in perception. If you don’t let them in they tend to think your life is perfect. I pride myself on being real, genuine and honest. All my life I have dealt with depression and later on anxiety. I have had many hardships {death of my son, getting cancer, deployments, getting teased/bullied} For a time I needed medication for anxiety but for ME it only made it worse. There’s nothing wrong with asking for help. There’s nothing wrong with talking to someone. Let’s get rid of this stigma about mental health and have a conversation about it. You are not alone! "
Ps 9:9-10: The Lord is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble. Those who know your name will trust in you, for you, Lord, have never forsaken those who seek you (NIV).

Fashion Friday {Glass Houses}

It's crazy how it's been a week since I was in California recording the rest of my EP! Well, not recording I should say. I actually got sick and wasn't able to finish the songs. Now I have to get better and prepare another trip to get out there to finish as soon as possible. I am definitely disappointed! I'm working on it. How do you guys deal with disappointment? 

Don't get me wrong things definitely turned around for me. This week my debut single was released out into the world! The response has been overwhelmingly positive! I'm so excited for what's to come. I'm nervous for sure but still really excited!
You can see my music video here.

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 ?
