Life in a Nutshell

Dear readers,

It has been way too long since I last posted! It feels great to be back. So much to spill here, so much to tell you. 

So I am a single lady now. Yes it has its ups and downs, but it has been a blast so far learning about myself and about life along the way. 

So for starters I broke it off. A person can only take so much before they come to a breaking point and wake up and realize what they truly want and deserve. And this was just not doing it for me. It was quite the ugly break up, but thank God for true friends and family!!

I did not move in with my parents I was bound determined to find a place of my own. So now I am renting my own apartment in this little town I moved to because of the relationship in the first place. 

Why didn’t I move back to my hometown? Because I built my life here. Made friends and family of my own. And why leave? Don’t I deserve to stay where I became independent, and found myself more responsible and happy? I think so. 

I am now an assistant manager of the convenient store. And no longer working to jobs as of this Wednesday. Needless to say I am super excited about that because now I can actually make plans. 

I am still single. I have tried to talk with other men. But things just are not working out. I either find men who want just one thing, or guys who just want to be friends but don’t even talk. So it’s just a matter of staying true to myself and doing whatever makes me happy until the right person comes along and wants to be apart of my life as much as I would want to be apart of theirs. 

I found out just yesterday that I have a second cousin here in this small town which makes it feel more like home. 

And I have my hunger to travel yet again!! Mostly because I am slowly starting to see signs that this is something I need to do for myself. But mostly because I went to my uncle’s funeral yesterday, and come to find out he had a gypsy soul just like me. He traveled the entire country with his wife on a motorcycle in which they tugged along with them a little pop up camper. That’s amazing to me.

So I want to travel the world but I want to share that experience with someone. ๐Ÿ™‚ So here I am little Missouri girl with tons of things in my agenda, one very big bucket list to fill, and tons of memories to make. But I am happy and so far doing very good on my own at my age of 20. Pretty much 100% independent and you know what?? I don’t know that I could really ask for too much more. 


What should I expect?

Dear bloggers,

(cough, cough….. what I really mean to say is HEY BLOGGERS!!!! It has been a LONG time and lots has happened, and still happening. I hope you have all been well!!)

Okay so my hubby and I have been holding down the fort now for about two months on our own. (for those of you who don’t or didn’t know, his momma moved out on her own. so excited for her, and more excited for us) I have found a second job. Conveniently close to home, but TIME CONSUMING! Which don’t get me wrong, is a great thing! But I work odd hours so there are some days when I see my hubby for about 30 minutes, (not sarcastic one bit) a day!

But the money is nice and its a weekly paycheck. So less stress. ๐Ÿ™‚

Now let’s be real. The real reason why I am typing today is because I am nervous out of my mind. Being a WOMAN is not fun at all, except for the shopping, the shoes, the cute clothes, the hair. . . (okay maybe a little fun)

But no seriously, having to go to the GYNO is not so fun, but I will give it this. The Pap is not that bad. Had my first one a couple of weeks ago and it is like okay. . . kinda awkward though when you don’t know what to do with the clothes and/or the convo’sย you have with the lady looking at your Girl Town.

Well the doctors office called the other day saying that my Pap Test came back abnormal. This test was my first one ever. So this is scary for me. This whole thing. There are abnormal cells on my cervix. That’s all I know.

They want me to come back in 6 months (October 13th. lucky me, its not a Friday!), forย  a follow up exam. Okay question: (is this just another Pap Test? or are they going to do other tests/procedures that same day? Will this effect my fertility or ability to conceive? Tell me everything I need to know because I am at my breaking point in wonder and worry, and its only about May!

I have already googled a lot of things, and watched YouTube vids. Which is why I have decided to come to you all.

(just a follow up on previous health posts, my cystic acne is just about cleared up! Yay!)

Anyways tell me your stories of the GYNO visits. Anything from humorous to helpful. How to prep for them and well ya know. . . just in general what do you do for these embarrassing things.



20 Reasons to Smile

Hello my dear friends,

So sorry for my last post. Oh how emotional I was that day. But this blog makes for great writing or a perfect place to vent and that is just what I needed. All is well if you were wondering, and I am still very infatuated with the love of my life. We are all allowed to be stressed or angry at times right? Anyways….

So tomorrow marks the day I turn the BIG 20!! Yep, that’s right. I will be 20 years old. It came by fast, and I do feel older. Not physically, but mentally and realistically. Like I am more responsible, mature, happy, and kinda like where I am at this point in my life. Time flies folks and that is no lie! My mother will be turning 55 soon, and my father he is 60!! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ yeah. I know. Right?

So today I just thought that I would post 20 reasons to smile. And then end it with a few goals for my 20’s.

I hope you found a reason to smile today!

1. Smile because you never know who is falling in love with it. (Hook, line, and sinker: just smile) it works: trust me ๐Ÿ˜‰

2. Every day is a new day. Be grateful for that.

3. Smiling is healthy for you.

4. You are one step closer to somewhere you want to be or somewhere you have never been.

5. There is always at least one more book out there good enough for you or myself to read. You better believe it.

6. Problems can result in termination, but are never completely eternal. Only are they eternal, when one fails to seek the more positive side or find happiness of their own.

7. Happiness is never hard to find. All you have to do is choose to be happy.

8. Quilting is the most comfortable form of storytelling I know how to do.

9. Music can be the most beautiful way to connect with the people around you and even yourself.

10. Dancing is the most sensational and free form of storytelling. A language common and known around the world.

11. You are never alone. There is always someone to talk to. Even the stranger sitting next to you.

12. Ironically you can not trust anyone. Even I have learned I have had a hard time trusting myself. (Smile because you dont have to learn the hard way, I told you)

13. Girls will be daughters, mothers, bridesmaids, and wives. (and we all do this while ruling the world)

14. Boys will be sons, fathers, best men,ย  and husbands. (And they all do this while teaching our sons how to grow up to be men, and how to treat a lady)

15. Grandparents will always have the best advice, and we get to grow up to be like them and some of us even lucky enough to spoil the grandchildren.

16. The greatest ever tattoos are the ones on your face. When you grow old you will know why you have them and how they got there. The best one is called the parentheses. They are the lines formed when smiling. When they finally stick and form a wrinkle, you have a tattoo to show you have lived a happy life ๐Ÿ˜Œ โค๐Ÿ˜˜

17. Each and every one of usย  are given an opportunity. When those opportunities come knocking on our door, go for it. You would not want to find yourself the next moment wondering what could have been. Smile because that opportunity might come tomorrow. ๐Ÿ™‚

18. Smile because Shirley Temple and Little Orphan Annie were the greatest ever childhood stars!!!! And remember ๐ŸŽถ the sun will come out tomorrow…๐ŸŽถ

19. Love will always find a way. Single never really meant alone. And together never meant forever with the one you love, but rather with the ones you love

20. Wine, chocolate, and mommas homemade cooking solves every problem. But then there is always a good kiss and a hug from your favorite cuddle bug. (Smile because you know this one was cheesy) ๐Ÿ˜‚

Goal for my 20’s:

Blog post once a week and host 3 challenges throughout the year.

-be healthier

-find a house to live in

-be happier

-Love my 20 year old self because 20 will not be around for long



Life For Two

Dear readers,

I know it has been a while since I have posted an actual blog post about life in general. Well you and I have some catching up to do!

So this past week my boyfriend and I have had the house to ourselves, and must I say it has been nice! I love living life with just him and not with a third party in the house. So I can not wait until we live on our own, in a new house which will be soon hopefully.

We have been happiest so far with our new year. But being alone in the house together, you would think makes more room for “romance”, and it has but just in a sort of different way. I have fallen in love with him all over again. I look at him and smile just the same as the night I layed eyes on him. He is my forever love and we needed this time alone!

Monday we had a dinner date AT HOME! He cooked a wonderful dinner, (THANK THE LORD ABOVE HE CAN COOK, cause i can’t cook to save my life),and we watched movies. We cuddled, i fell asleep until i was awaken with a shake, best way you can wake me up. Then we popped popcorn and ate that through our 3rd and final movie for the night. Then went to bed.

I Think a few posts back i was worried about the status of our relationship or at least where it was headed. But now i am certain that we have been on the uophill slope for aute some time and I am loving every minute of it. We are both so happy and we are both so in love againm the trust is back and we are like we were when we first started out.

Only better because we have more experience and more know how. We work as a team which is how it should be. He always makes me feel confident even when i am not feeling my best and takes care of me when i am sick, even if it were the stupid kind of sick, like intoxicated. Anyways….

We are there for each other and we know that, only we have shown that even more so throughout this past week and even a few months prior. I am so happy to see what the future holds, and maybe a little nervous too.

I however am still making pizza and I still am trying to do my best to save money for a new house. I am still trying to keep myt goals straight and continue to tey and get back into college. But now is just nit the right time for that. Life is happening and i donr think i can quite do college with life right now.

But the good news is life goes on and it has quite a ways to go before it ends. Life for two is just sweet. So i am going to take on this journey and enjoy it. Because we are never promised a life for two always. And we are necer promised tomorrow. And something i learned today….

That laundry softner is not the same as laundry detergent, and never go to sleep unhappy.

May your blogging days be ever so filled with a whole lot of writing.ย 





Meg needs your help

Hey guys,

I know it has been a long time. Like before Christmas! Well i hope you all had a happy holiday and that you are all enjoying the new year!

My dear friends today I am posting, for I have a question for you. Personal matter. About skin problems. Okay. Cystic Acne. This is the second time I have had it. Only this time it is not going away easily. Its by my chin on the right side of my face and spreading up.

Have any of you, my readers, faced with this problematic Cystic Acne? How bad was it for you? And what did you do to get rid of it?

Even if you have not dealt with this, do you know of any ways to get rid of this acne?

I am currently taking Accutane (which worked the very first occurrence.) i would consider procedures but i would rather do natural remedies if possible.

Your comments, stories, and advice are much appreciated!
