HeyUSA

I have a bit of a YouTube obsession. Grace and Mamrie are two of my absolute favorite. They just came out with their new show HeyUSA where they traveled to 8 different cities last summer and asked their twitter followers what they should do and they did them!


Check out all of the episodes HERE.

My favorite moments are definitely when they ran with the bulls, hung out with a drag queen, and went to a bourbon factory! I am so excited because in November my friend Kelly and I get to go see their "This Might Get Weird Ya'll" show! 
"Keep your bung up and your bourbon down!"

Festivals and Pumpkins

love that I captured her genuine laugh

A couple weekends ago we were told that Little One's art was picked to be an entry in the art show at an annual festival in our city. She was so excited. Little one LOVES anything to do with art. She could sit all day and color, draw, and write. We were surprised when we arrived at the festival and saw that she won second place in her age group! 






We also went to a pumpkin patch last weekend. They had corn mazes, a slide coming down from a fire truck, water pumps, and more!

Getting Second Opinions

Follow my blog with Bloglovin I used to be a girl who believed everything a doctor or dentist told me. That is until Little One had a bump in the road with one of her front teeth. Last year while we were in Virginia, our pediatric dentist informed us that Little One had an extra tooth that she was born with and it was coming down and would need to be taken out eventually. Fast forward to the beginning of this summer when Little One fell and knocked her front tooth loose.




I brought her to our pediatric dentist here in North Carolina who I've never been to before and went through a lot of waiting and insurance mumbo jumbo. Eventually the dentist took a look at her tooth and said that they would need to take out BOTH of her front teeth and then extract the extra tooth that's coming down and then put in false teeth (for cosmetic purposes). I told a family friend about this and she suggested I get a second opinion at the dentist her kid's went to because all of that didn't sound right to her which I agreed. A couple weeks later we went to the new dentist and he was very friendly and organized. He took a digital scan of her teeth (for free!) and told us that what will happen is once her already loose tooth falls out then he can extract the extra tooth and that's that. 

< ---- after she lost her tooth!


you can see a bit of her extra tooth coming down ---> 

A couple weeks later her tooth fell out while eating an apple and we made an appointment for a simple extraction. I was a bit nervous. The only experience I had with extractions were getting my wisdom teeth out and boy, was that ridiculous. I was immediately calmed when we went in there though. Little One brought her blanket and her stuffed puppy Goober and went through it all so well. She was talking up a storm with the dentist and his assistant and it all took literally 15 minutes most of that numbing her for pain. She got a ring and a couple of prizes for being so good. There was minimal bleeding and later on she was confused why her face felt odd (due to the numbing) and didn't like it but I was so proud of her. 

I would say to all moms or even for us adults to make sure you get a second opinion always on big medical procedures like this especially when you're child is so young. Also, always go to a doctor or dentist you 110% trust!

Hello Stranger.



Oh hello there! I haven't "seen" you in awhile. What have I been up to? Oh you know, just took an unexpected hiatus, tried starting a new blog that didn't go anywhere, Mr. is out of the Navy and we are back with my parents for now. That's a long story for another day. 

I've been wanting to restart this blog again for some time now but I keep putting it off, so today I am doing it and just seeing where it will take me. I'm ready to share things with you all and grow those relationships again. 

I am excited for this adventure and I hope you are too!
