I did it again...

Sorry guys.. I did it again. I wrote the last time back in May and have not wrote since then. Well I have started keeping a journal lately and have started new medication for my A.D.D. so goal is to be better at everything, including writing more often. Writing is an outlet for me and while I write facebook posts and tweets, it's not the same as writing a full blog entry, especially when I have a specific topic to discuss. Plus I want to get more interaction with my fans and this is a perfect place to do so!
To touch more on the A.D.D. medicine though...

I put up the following update on fb the other day- 

      I am an adult with A.D.D. Many people think they have it and often times when I mention it I get the same reaction- O I think I may have that too. Some may perhaps but those that don't have no idea whats it is really like. Some are understanding, some just laugh it off and most don't really understand it. Having A.D.D. can be a struggle. The mind is already a crazy place but when you are unable to properly maintain all the info swimming around up there it can be a little tricky just to get the normal day to day things done. Why am I posting this to fb? Well I want people out there struggling with it to know they aren't alone, I'd like to help change some of the stereotypical thoughts associated with it and after taking myself off meds for it about 7 years ago I just restarted medication so I am hoping to get a little bit of control of it myself. We all have issues in our lives, some admit them, some cannot but always remember no matter what you are struggling with you are never alone. Someone out there is struggling too. If you have an issue in your life don't shy away from it, let it make you an even better person!

I want to be an advocate for A.D.D. awareness. I want people to know they are not alone, it's rough at times but there are things out there you can do to help it! At the end of this blog I will post a link to a great website you can go to for information on both A.D.D. and A.D.H.D. and how to know if you or someone you know may have it and what resources are available to you. I'm also always here if you have any questions for me, just shoot me an email!

Hello March...

Just thought I should jump on and write an update blog..



We moved into a new apartment in December and things have been a little hectic since. We absolutely LOVE the community and we know the new company is doing amazing things to improve the property but due to our apartment being an older one and on the bottom floor, there have been some issues.. I won't get into things in depth but we're looking for them to relocate our apartment as I write this so hopefully it all improves soon. That being said we have been crazy busy and dealing with a lot as a result, including having to stay in a hotel briefly.

The best news from the last few months- Kaliyah is done with physical therapy! She broke her neck in May 2018 and finished up with her PT in February 2019. She pushes herself so hard, goes to the gym on her own and has really shown some amazing growth, even starting her own YouTube channel! It's so funny to watch your kids do things and see little pieces of yourself in it. Pl…

Gluten & Allergen Free Wellness Event

My whole life changed (for maybe the billionth time) on November 3, 2017.

I had watched my son graduate from his Army AIT training the day before and traveled back from SC only to wake up with my entire face so swollen it looked as though I could burst at any moment.. the pain was real. I had done some blood work at the docs a few weeks earlier and we had not gotten the results so my husband drove me straight to the doc that day to demand some answers. I was told a few tests needed to be redone but the one thing she knew for sure is no more gluten... I blogged about it here. Before you ask, no I have not found out if it's Celiac, Lupus or anything else, even though the doctor seemed concerned about Celiac. Insurance issues. Yay life...
The last year has been a huge journey. Figuring out that EVERY little thing matters. Cross-contamination is real (if you don't change your gloves I will have a reaction), almost everything has gluten in it from shampoo to sausage and you often f…

Garnier Nutrisse Ultra Coverage #VoxBox

*This is a sponsored blog from Garnier Nutrisse and Influenster as I received this product to test for free

So recently I was selected to receive a new #VoxBox from Influenster of a beautiful light brown (#630 Toffee Nut) hair dye from Garnier Nutrisse. I have used this brand a few times in the past so I really had no worries with trying out this new one. I set up my phone and did my first "unboxing" video which was kinda fun and something I think I may do more of.



Inside were:



After mixing them as instructed I kept the dye on for the recommended time of 30 minutes in going from a dark blonde color to this light brown. I must admit I was a little worried the color would properly cover my head as I was applying; the bottle felt so light but I ended up with just a little more than enough and I still applied that to be sure. My hair as you can see is just at my neck length so I imagine if it was longer than shoulder length you'd be better off grabbing two boxes to be sure. …
