Nothing was the same..

Can you see that look in my eyes?! Or the smile on my face?! I can honestly say that I am in a much better place now than I was 4 months ago. My family is complete, including my beau who is now here after waiting for the government to work out their kinks with this past shutdown. Still have a couple major things in the works, that I dont want to speak on them just yet. Hopefully I'll have something good to write about sometime very soon.

My Old Glory

As my 5th Veteran's Day as a member of the Armed Forces passed, I realized how important the job of a service member really is. And just how much we are respected for the choices we make. It really does mean a lot to me to when I am thanked for my service, and from the bottom of my heart I appreciate it every time I hear it. My family is built on service, with our newest member being my little brother, Glenn. We enjoy what we do, and we appreciate being given that chance to serve. So from my military family to yours, we thank you for allowing us to serve you.



ps. I guess he liked it. Because he definitely put a gorgeous ring on it!

Quarter of a Century

Thats how long I've been alive! My birthday this past Saturday was just shy of perfect! My sister made it in to Texas right in time to hang out with me. I've learned and accomplished a lot in the past 25 years, and there is still soooooo much I want to do! Everyday I strive to provide the best life for me and my son and I love the support system that I have built to help me out!

It's almost over...

The entire summer. of 2013. NOT. ONE. POST. This summer has been the worst of my life, but still the most productive. I tried to be a good person and was taken advantage of by my ex-husband for the last time. We agreed that Jeremy would stay with him for 3 weeks and right before that time period was over he told I would not get my baby back! Crazy, right?! As crazy as that was, a long summer ensued. We went to court, I was awarded custody and although I had to move into a new home alone while Jeremy stayed the summer in less than favorable conditions, I have him now and thats all that matters. I have no words for my ex in-laws. NONE. With that out of the way, we are now attempting to adjust to the Texas heat! Jeremy loves his new school and things are smooth, for now. There is even more exciting news to share, but I cant tell what it is just yet. Just know that in true absoluteDOLL fashion, IT IS MAJOR! (c: Whelp, here's a little picture therapy:

Peplum Pretty

When you keep positive and uplifting people in your circle, they say things to you like "When are you going to blog again?!" and "Did you know its been a week since your last post?!" Ha! Leave it to my friends to drive me to crawl out of my bed on a long weekend. You know that thing we do when we picture stuff in our heads?! Well, I must admit, this one didn't come out exactly the way I planned, but seeing as all my full length mirrors are on their way half across the world I let this one ride.. Let me know what you guys think!

My Diamond Hair Company virgin hair on the other hand is a completely different story! I used to swear by this virgin Malaysian hair until I got a hold of some virgin Peruvian from Genesis Virgin Hair. This hair does not curl! Lord. Ive tried heat and no heat and although using flexi rods gives some what of a curl, it doesn't last! Ugh! For virgin hair prices I need a little more, so did I enjoy this hair?! Yes. Would I recommend it?! Probably not. Would I ever purchase it again?! No. Soooooo, there you have it..

Thee Sophisticated Aristocrat

Moving can be very time consuming but there's always time for your pride and joy to turn 2 years old! This week all my personal belongings were also boxed up, placed in crates and are currently on their way to the other side of the globe. Even with that being said, time had to be made to let my baby have the time of his life. I've been throwing this blazer on a lot lately, and I'm finding the outcomes quite fun..

Spring, where art thou?!

Here in USAREUR (US Army Europe) we are graced with a 4-day weekend every month. Sometimes, depending on if there is a holiday that month, we may get multiples! Well, this weekend happened to be one of those, seeing that we werent off for Good Friday and Easter Monday like everyone else. I spent my Saturday with my the crew (so affectionately known as the TRIFECTA) for Jaci's daughter Londyn's birthday party at Yabadoo. We had such an awesome time. I tried to keep my outfit festive enough for a kids party while staying practical. I also wanted to stay warm. I know, technically its Spring. Apparently Germany never got that memo! -insert sad face here-.

Jolly Green Dolly

I'm not sure how many times one person can apologize for their lack of posts, but I'm sure I'm breaking some kind of record. I'M SORRY! As much as I tell myself that I have to get off my lazy rumpus and blog something, my lack of motivation wouldn't let me. Dont worry, I've had you guys in my heart and I finally found the enthusiasm. Lately, I've surrounded myself with encouraging people; people that only want the best for me. I've been in contact more often with my family, which also helps to keep me grounded.

These pictures were taken last weekend from my friend Brittany's babyshower. We are patiently waiting for baby boy Elijah's arrival and with 3 girls already at home, I'm sure mommy and daddy cant wait for baby boy to get here! The weather is very iffy here in Germany, and this just happened to be one of the warmer days. I hope you guys enjoy!

instaLife: Köln

Click to enlarge; Hover for captions!

Köln (pronounced "Cologne" in English) is the fourth largest German city. Köln was established by the Romans in 50 AD as a headquarters for the military in the area at the time. It is now a gorgeous city with beautiful architecture and rich history. Being that I was with good company, I had a wonderful time! We spent most of our time enjoying the little pieces of America that Köln boasted: Dunkin Donuts and Hard Rock. When your this far from home its the little reminders that mean the most. Hope you enjoy this as much as I enjoyed my trip.
