An outing is a pleasant trip to the outdoors.

An adventure is an outing gone wrong.

Today is My Due Date

Hello everyone and welcome to another post!

Today is my due date and if I hadn’t miscarried last August I would be bringing home our little bundle of joy any day now. So I thought I would pop on here and do a quick “postpartum” mental health update.

Hello Everyone!

I know I’m probably going to sound like everyone else in this post, but I want to go into 2019 with a goal oriented mindset.

I don’t know if I believe in the concept of New Year resolutions because it seems like when I make one, I spend the first two weeks of January being my best self and the rest of the year being my regular, pre-resolution self.

Our First Anniversary

Hello everyone!

I know I missed last week, but I have been vacationing for the holidays and to celebrate my first wedding anniversary with Mike.

First I would like to say a few things.

This year has had some rough times and has had some pretty great times and throughout it all my husband has been by my side. I honestly could not have done it without him.

Labor Day Weekend

Hello everyone!

I realize this post is a little late, but for Labor Day weekend my husband and I went camping and we had a blast!

We saw a lot of beautiful scenery, sunrises and sunsets, the moon and stars, and a ton of wildlife. There was a young black bear eating berries right in the middle of the road, a few antelope, some mule deer, an elk, a very sneaky coyote, and a handful of white-tail deer.

Hello everyone!

This post is a little more personal than my other ones and I will be sharing some uncomfortable details because it is about pregnancy and miscarriage. I know these topics are not interesting for everyone, so if you don’t want to read about these maybe skip this one?

A Break From My Blog

Hello everyone!

I’m not sure if anyone noticed, but this summer I took a pretty big break from my blog. Since it wasn’t intentional, I never posted about it so I’m sorry if anyone actually looked forward to reading my weekly blog. But I am back and I feel like I can finally write again so I thought I’d tell you all why I needed such a long break.

Help! We Accidentally Bought a House..

Hello everyone!

We are buying a house!

When we moved here, my husband and I were given two weeks to find a place to move into. We did and so far I don’t really care for the apartment we are currently in for a number of reasons. This post won’t be a list of reasons why I don’t like where we are currently living, it will serve as an informal First Time Home Owners Guide on How to Buy a House.

Follow the Recipe

Hello everyone!

I have noticed that each person has a unique style of cooking.

My sister follows the recipe exactly and makes sure she measures each ingredient precisely. My mom looks at her recipe cards and decides what to cook. Then she sort of dumps or pours ingredients together until it looks and tastes right.

Newlywed Cooking..??

food-pot-kitchen-cooking.jpg

Hi Everyone!

My latest brainstorm for expanding my blog is to talk about cooking so if this post isn’t too boring, I will probably be writing about this subject again in the future. So how on Earth did I learn how to cook dinner every night for my husband after barely cooking dinner for myself once a week?

Settling In

Hello Everyone!

After being in our new house for a few days, I have had time to reflect on the process of getting settled into a new home. I thought packing up a house was a big enough chore, but I did not prepare myself for the task of trying to find a useful place for everything Mike and I were unpacking.

Mike’s Birthday!

Hi everyone!

As you all know, Mike and are moving. A few days ago in the middle of frantically packing and trying to downsize by getting rid of nonessential household items, I remembered that it was nearly Mike’s Birthday!

An Update on Our Move

Uhaul_and_New_York_-_panoramio

Hello Everyone!

Before I get started with my newest post I would like to say that all of the pictures I have used in my blog so far are either from the Wikimedia free photo library, from the WordPress free photo library or my own. I thought I would add something about the photos I have been using so that nobody can say I have been plagiarizing or using someone else’s work unlawfully.

House Hunting

pexels-photo-909819.jpeg

Hello everyone!

Since moving into the middle of nowhere Montana, I have come to measure civilization by the number of Walmarts a town or city has. This may seem a little weird, but where we are currently living there are about ten small towns scattered throughout the abyss and the closest Walmart is a two and a half hour drive away. The most exciting part of this post is that we are moving to the closest town in the region with a Walmart!

Packing.. Packing.. And More Packing..

Hello Everyone!

I have some exciting news! Mike’s job is transferring him to another city!

I’m super thrilled for him because he has wanted to transfer for a few months. This is a huge success for him.

I however am not super thrilled to be packing the house again.

Dirty Laundry

Hello Everyone!

I know that laundry is not a super exciting subject so I will try to dress up the discussion of it as much as I can.

When living at home with your parents, you often have a washing machine and dryer in your home.

The Honeymoon

Hello Everyone!

The honeymoon that Mike and I went on was not a traditional “go to Hawaii for two weeks” honeymoon.

I don’t know if there is anyone else like me, but when I go on vacation I sort of like to lay around recuperating from the stresses of everyday life. As you can imagine Mike is the exact opposite. While he loves an adventure packed full of excitement, I love to sleep in a little and casually enjoy the rest of the day. Our honeymoon turned out to be a mixture of both.

The Wedding

Hello everyone!

I met my husband in my second year of college. I was 19 years old and we both were taking the same history class. He proposed about a year and a half later and we got married on the 3rd anniversary of our 1st date.

Character Building Experiences

Hello everyone!

This is my very first blog. If anyone has any comments, please feel free to say hi!

I would like to give an example definition of the term “character building experience”. In only a few short months as a newlywed, I have had many different character building experiences. This is the story of one of my very first experiences.
