hiatus is over!

Oh hey.....remember me?

 Well, I am back from my two week hiatus and ready to fill y'all in...

It has been a while since I have provided the blog with an update in to my personal life. My recent blog vaca has given me the much needed time to re-energize and reflect. It has also given me the time to become obsessed with the tv show Friday Night Lights on Netflix.....
Ummm...why didn't I not know about this show when it was actually on tv?
 Team Tim Riggins! 

Let's get you up to speed.


Things at the office have been really busy. Really good busy. Our new fiscal year just started in August and with so many new projects and budgets to put together, I feel like a chicken with it's head cut off. But I can honestly say that I love my job and the career that I have built for myself. It has taken me 8 years to get here but I am really proud of the path I have taken with my company. I am also really proud of my dear work friends I have met along the way. I see them all flourishing in their own careers and making a name for themselves. That light at the end of the tunnel is burning really bright these days!


I have not updated the blog on my health status in quite a fact only once really. I am still living with HS and seeing the small side effects on a pretty regular basis. The breakouts are fairly minor now and are thankfully able to be controlled with medication. The truth is that I have found great relief, not only physically but emotionally, in being able to control this crap with the use of a topical antibiotic (for the most part). My oral antibiotic simply kills my stomach. I still have my ups and downs. Moments when I start to feel sad that I have these stupid bumps under my arms or on my chest. BUT then my husband swoops in and reminds me where I was last year and how far we have come from that. Other than a couple random bumps, I am great! Still absolutely loving ballet once a week at Richmond Ballet. Still not signed up for that gym membership, but we all knew that was not going to happen....


My family continues to amaze me everyday. Reid is ever still my rock and partner. He also has the awesome ability to drive me more crazy than anybody else I know....but I love him more and more each day. He is doing great at work and is really enjoying the start of Clemson football. My niece and nephew, Libbie and Palmer, are growing like weeds and are truly something else. Libbie is already 6 months old and crawling, can y'all believe that? Palmer is an force of nature and just sooo smart. The things that come out of his mouth are just to much. They bring the biggest smiles to our faces and I cannot imagine life without them. Spending time with them makes me so excited to be a parent one day. My other brother Jay just came in for a visit from Cali. I love seeing him, even if it is only 2-3 times a year. Being on the other side of the continent makes you value the time we actually get to see each other. My parents are great and busy being awesome grandparents to L, P and all the grand pups. I am also happy to report that all my dear friends seem to be in wonderful places in their lives. It makes me so happy to be surrounded by these wonderful people.

I think that about sums up my personal status update for today. This rest of the week should be filled with some fun stuff: Ashley will be back, I will fill y'all in on the fun we had in DC this past weekend and maybe some fun fall fashion.

"Texas Forever"



don't miss one minute of fun ~ follow along!
