My little family recently took a last minute trip to NYC! It's only 9 hours away from us and in 1.5 years we will be moving back to Kansas, and thought we should explore the east coast while we can! The autumn drive was GORGEOUS. And NYC was just as amazing as I expected, I could definitely live on the upper east side ;) My husband is a major country boy though. He loves wide open spaces! Our compromise is the suburbs!

Well I have been having a GREAT time with my husband being home! And our 14 month old is adjusting amazingly! God is so good, I have been praying so much the last 7-8 months that the adjustment would go smoothly when Mr. Husband came home and that he would keep us all safe. And God answered my prayers better than I could have imagined! Sometimes my prayers don't get answered in the ways I wanted them to, but God always seems to know what is best for my family and I!

We have been hanging out a lot and enjoying my husband's time off, we took an IKEA trip during the weekend and also watched lots of movies! I will post photos of our new house and furniture eventually. sigh. So much still to do!

I am getting much better at using my camera and am learning sooooo much in my photography classes, but I still have a terrible time using my tripod and self timer! If I messed with it more maybe I would figure it out, but it's like 105 degrees here in Kansas... So I take my pics and then run back indoors! haha.

I've been taking some photography and photo shop classes and I've really been enjoying it! I'm learning a LOT, so much that I forget a lot and I get headaches. 

Having two classes a week gives me a break from Emery, and it's helping the time pass by during this deployment! But GOOD NEWS.......We are in the home stretch! SQUEEEE!

Skirt, sandals, top-F21

My 13 month old! How adorable is he??

 Here is a sample of some of the photography stuff I've been doing, This sweetie pie is my new nephew! Elijah :)

Whew! This heat is killing me. I have started running again, which I've been enjoying, but I'm not getting as far as I would like with this heat and humidity, that and my sinuses/allergies are KILLING ME!
This heat makes me extra grateful for everyone in the military who is deployed or has deployed to the middle east, (like Mr. Husband). 
Every time you think about how hot it is, say a prayer for everyone serving in the military :)
That thought helps me to not feel sorry for myself!

But seriously, is it autumn yet???

I have another confession..., not only do I enjoy shopping at Kohls... but I also enjoy shopping at "Dress Barn".
*covers head in shame*
It takes some digging, BUT it is possible to find cute outfits in there, AND their clothes are made for people with ginormous boobs. Like me.

Oh man, getting back into fashion blogging has been more difficult than I had imagined, especially since I have a child now! I feel like it should be a bit easier now that I am fitting back into all of my clothes! (Almost a year after having my son...).
I definitely expected things to go back to normal more quickly! Oh well :)
I have been reading everyone's blogs again, and though I don't comment often, I find a lot of inspiration from you ladies! I love how artistically everyone puts together their outfits. And things that I never could have imagined together, look great!

Top, trouser shorts and glasses-F21

Also I have really been enjoying learning how to use my camera, especially since I have photoshop now, It's so much fun to play with!

I feel like this is becoming more of a weight loss/fitness blog than a fashion blog!
BUT I am down 19 pounds since January 1st! AND I'm at my wedding weight. AND I only have 9 more lbs until I reach my goal! I put on a skirt the other day that I haven't worn since me and my husband were engaged! ahhhh! squeeee!!
Only problem is, my boobs are still way bigger than they used to be. sigh.

Anyway. I'm done bragging now.

one more thing, I added my "my fitness pal", ticker at the bottom, if you're on there add me!

I have a confession.. I have become addicted to KOHLS. pretty weird, huh?
I have always disliked Kohls and their lame "department store" selection.
But now they have all this super cute stuff! They carry different lines, like Lauren Conrad and Elle. and those lines have the cuuuuutest stuff.
And it's Kohls.. so everything is always on sale. Which is pretty cool.

wedges- target

and my bff anna is in the last photo, she's pretty cool, just like Lauren Conrad.

I know I know, I've been gone for like a month and a half, I've fallen off the face of the earth again and you're all pissed! saying things like, "If she does this again I'm totally taking her off my "follow" list."

 But before you delete me and never speak my name again... look at these adooooorable photos. 
How could you possibly delete these faces??
 I mean.... seriously.
 we are awesome and we are BACK.

3 wonderful years

I'm one of those lucky people who is madly in love with a wonderful guy! God has completely blessed me in the husband department. I couldn't have snagged a better one!
We have been together for 7 years (highschool sweethearts) and as of today, we have been married for 3 years!
And I can honestly say it's been the best 3 years of my life! (so far)
gosh, I just love him!

He got me my favorite flowers today, and chocolate covered strawberries! All the way from the middle east! (he's deployed)
