Welcome to my little ol' blog. I'll be upfront about it: I don't blog very often any more. If you found your way here because you read my book "Trailer Life," have a gander! But it's easier to keep up with me on Instagram or on my Facebook page. I have this long, drawn out theory on why I'm a terrible blogger, but that is a story for another day. Enjoy the ramblings of my life from the last 8 years or so.

Happy Thanksgiving and a new blog!

So, I am completely hideous about taking pictures lately. I will get better. It's a personal problem, in that I truly don't take good pictures. And I love my point and shoot camera for ease of carrying around, but I really prefer the D-SLR because I hate the constant flash thing I have going on. But since I haven't been taking pictures anyway, I guess it doesn't matter.

I hate shopping for clothes. I need a day to go shopping by myself (or with someone who will be very patient and say, NO! Your butt just grew two sizes with those pants! and run back and help me get stuff. I'll still hate it, but I NEED to. I've been pregnant most of the last five years and have not bought myself a pair of jeans since I've been married (8.5 years). My friend Amy gives me her hand-me-downs, and I've been wearing the same two pairs for ages. I happen to love them, but one pair is baggy in a "saggy bottom" kind of way, not the cool surfer way.

I am starting another blog. It's called Simply Healthier. It's gonna be about health stuff. I meant to do it back in July, but I got a little busy. I'm making it a priority. If you are interested, go HERE. It's a work in progress, and I hope to have all the graphics part of it done by tomorrow night. You can read my research findings and opinions on health stuff. Note that it's not called "Simply Skinnier". Diet and exercise will be the main focus, with healthy recipes, and whatever else crops up. But the sole reason is to help motivate myself to be healthier. Because frankly speaking, when I eat like crap, I feel like crap. And I live 30 miles from a gym. And I have four kids. I love food. And I live in a trailer with a toaster oven outside and no space for floor excercies. So it'll be real. And simple. Keep your peepers open for it...if you are interested.

And for the record, Kacy is thankful for "the whole entire earth", Will is thankful for motorcycles, and Ed is thankful for Granny's house. (Did he just make the connection that we had Thanksgiving dinner at my grandma's house? The food was excellent this year- a deep pit turkey that was the best yet, funeral potatoes, roasted asparagus (my contribution), and lots of other yummy food. My mom makes this dessert with chocolate chips, coconut, a crust and caramel that is WONDERFUL. NOT healthy. I loved every bite.)
