The Best Christmas Music That You Need in Your Life NOW!

Christmas music is the best! If you don't have these albums and songs in your holiday stash, you need to run out and buy them right now!

Now that Santa's moseyed on through the Macy's Day Parade, it means it's officially the holiday season! It also means I can listen to Christmas music on repeat without my husband looking at me and shaking his head with that look. He's a holiday purist; one of those people who takes each holiday as they come. Luckily (and sadly), Thanksgiving is long gone, so now it's time to listen to my favorite music and enjoy the season upon us. If you don't have the following albums and songs in your ... read more

Madilyn Rose (9 months)

Madilyn Rose 9 months

Well, isn't this funny...I ended up skipping Julia's 8-month update, because we were incredibly busy that month, and it looks like the same holds true for Maddie-Roo. Life is just moving right along, which means I'm pretty much in denial that Madilyn's less than three months away from her first birthday. Actually, I don't even want to talk about that, because I'm pretty sure I just had her yesterday. Goodness gracious. Madilyn, Madilyn, Maddie-Roo, My apologies for not writing you a ... read more

We’re Home!

Disney World YAY

We're home—YAY!!! Wow. The past three months have been a whirlwind of travel. I'd type out all of the places we've been, but it would just make my head spin even more. In case you're just catching up, here's the short version: In early September we took a road trip to and from New Mexico (with a round-trip drive to Arizona thrown in the mix), then after we came back to Georgia we did about six loads of laundry, repacked and hit the road again for our trip to Disney World. I'm tired. And my ... read more

ABC’s of Travel

A fun blog survey all about travel!

This post has been sitting in my drafts folder for months, which is silly considering it's been 90% complete for, well, months. We just got home yesterday from our trip to Disney World, and the week before that we came back from two months of being away from home. Needless to say, but I'm pooped, and pretty darn excited to settle down and not travel for a little while. Needless to say, but it makes perfect sense to talk about travel today. Y'all, I've been neglecting this blog of mine, so I'm ... read more

Saluting Those in Uniform with Suave #ShareBeauty


Our men and women in uniform are in a league of their own—and I have them on a pretty ridiculously high pedestal. I've said it a million and one times before, but there's no way I could hack it in the military. I'd love to share the other million reasons why I'm not a good fit, but today I'm going to focus on one thing: my hair. The regulations for hair in the military baffle me, probably because I'm a just-get-it-out-of-my-face-as-quickly-as-possible type of girl. Truth be told, I typically ... read more
