Eleven Years Of Wedded Bliss

13 Feb


Yesterday was my wedding anniversary.

Eleven years?


It feels like yesterday that I was walking down the aisle. But wait, I also can’t remember life before marriage.

I look at how far we’ve come in the past eleven years. Four homes. Two dogs. Two cats. Countless fish. Two kids…who are now BOTH school aged. A business.

It hasn’t always been unicorns and glitter, I think we can both admit that, we’ve had our share of ups and downs like every other couple out there but we stuck it out as a team.

I look at us and what we’ve accomplished both personally and professionally and we are truly and unstoppable team together.

Bill has always come through for me. He’s been there to call me out on my bullshit and indulge my childish side. I know he’d give me the world if it was his to give.

I’m hopeful that he feels the same. I sure do try to be a good wife. I try to make sure he knows I’m here when he needs me. I try hard to be his biggest cheerleader and his number one fan.

This year I’m thankful that a work trip took us to a nice place where we could spend our anniversary in the sun and warmth…NOT WORKING!

Here’s to a lifetime together being our awesome, unstoppable selves.


Mommyland Happenings {Volume 5}

Is it me or is 2016 flying by already? Another week escaped me and left me wondering where the hell it went.



I work early every Sunday morning and when I get home I need time to relax and let my body catch up to that 4:45am alarm clock. I’ve been drinking tea that has a positive saying on each tea bag and I always look forward to sitting down and seeing what it has to say.

Seemed good after a morning at work.



I work hard each day to save up enough calories to enjoy a pack of these. Tastykake cream filled buttercream cupcakes…two of these little pieces of heaven to a pack. They are most often enjoyed in bed, followed by my chamomile tea.



I’ll be spending a lot of time in the office this week so it’s nice to know that my little office buddy will be right there with me. Cooper is part cat (he loves to sit in the windows and sunny patches) and part pit bull (he will go after anything he sees as a threat to his family)



I went back to school. OK, it’s one online class but it comes with a certification when I complete it. I spent three hours working through the course and taking my first assessment. I am proud to say I received 100% and some great feedback from the professor.



Hi, my name is Mychal and I’m a latte-holic. This is the trashcan in my office and under that bubble wrap is a few more Starbucks cups.



Cameron is at it again with his paper crafts. He stayed up late Thursday night to make a box full of itty bitty paper airplanes. That box made it downstairs Friday morning and there were little airplanes everywhere. Here’s a little history on paper crafts in our house.



I’ve been giving essential oils a try over the past few weeks. I’ve diffused them, I’ve added them to Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream to make a lovely cooling foot cream and now I’ve made my first roll on concoction. I head to a big conference in San Diego tomorrow so I wanted to be prepared with an energy roll on to keep me going.

That’s my week. It was a fast and furious reentry after our Disney vacation but I think I handled it pretty well.

How was your week? Anything exciting?
