This is ME!

I have gotten quite a few new followers lately and this post from Household 6 Diva is the perfect excuse to re-introduce myself!

 This is my little family!

Me and the Hubs met in college at LSU (GEAUX TIGERS!) where we both graduated with a B.S. in Biology and minor in Chemistry

We sat across from one another in classes for an entire year, little did I realize my soul mate was just across the room!

Hubs was with the Air Force National Guard for 6 years, he received a phone call shortly after the second plane hit and was sent overseas promptly afterward

We will be married for 5 years on April 22nd this year

We lived as civilians for a while but didn't like it very much

One day I want to go to nursing school, I actually got into one but had to put that on hold once Hubs re-enlisted

Now he is active duty with the Navy, a nuke ET

We are currently surviving our first deployment as a family

We have a beautiful daughter, Little Miss, who has officially started her terrible twos but she IS the reason for my existence!

I like to keep busy, I started this blog as a tool to help me get through this deployment and an outlet for the thoughts going through my head

I am training to run a 5k in May

I am active in the FRG for our ship, play-group at The Little Gym, & a gym junkie

Little Miss attends at least 2 play-dates a week, she is full of energy! I can't wait until it warms up so I can bring her out running with me.


I am a self-proclaimed nerd 

I owe my sanity to great family & friends

I feel like the luckiest girl in the world
