Long time, no see

I know it has been almost a month since I have posted anything, so I thought I would update everyone on why and what is going on.

As you all know, we have a new bundle of joy. Not only are we adjusting to the changes of having her around, but we are also preparing for another deployment. Mr. Man will be leaving soon, so I have decided to take my spare time to spend with him as a family since he is not getting any time off of work before he leaves. Weekends are strictly family time as evenings are as well. My days are still cram packed with goodness so I can keep the evenings open for family gym time and relaxation. I do plan on starting to update everyone on Baby A and what she has been doing, as well as us as a family.

But before I start any of that, I wanted to make a quick note about the deployment - the reason I even brought it up now (before he left). I generally do not tell anyone when, where, etc of him living, but I wanted to let you guys know the change that my blog would be having once he is gone. Here it is... This is my outlet. But this will also be where I share our days with Mr. Man while he is away. I prefer not to post every little thing on Facebook because many do not understand the lifestyle we live, and I do not expect them to. So I have decided to temporarily make this blog a daily journal of our adventure through my husband's third deployment. I know I have always said I would never make it all about my daughter only, and I still plan to do that. But there will be more updates, pictures, and daily adventures going up for Mr. Man to read. With this said, there may end up being multiple posts some days. I still want to share my fitness journey, my cooking and baking, and my random projects. I just ask that you respect these little notes to Mr. Man, as they will also be documents of our life together as this blog is meant to be.

I greatly appreciate all the support we have been receiving from such wonderful people. I am thankful that I have a community of people right here in the blogging world that support, encourage, and inspire us through our life.

I hope everyone has been doing wonderful, and I will begin my updates on past events and milestones as I get the free time.


  1. So glad to see you back blogging! :) Enjoy your time with your hubby before he leaves.

  2. What are blogs for if not to share our lives with the most important people there are? I can't wait to hear how baby A is doing! Enjoy your family time :)

  3. I'm glad everything is going well. I'm totally with you in that not everyone understands the lifestyle. I agree with Kaylee above, Write what you want and what makes you happy.

  4. Thanks for the post, FINALLY! I was hoping everything was going alright with you guys and Baby A was doing well. Enjoy these precious moments you guys have together before Mr. Man leaves. And don't worry about what you choose to post 'cause I'll probably still read it anyway! :)

  5. Same boat here. Enjoy the time! Look forward to reading your posts.
