Mama's Got a New Look

Not really Mama so much as Mama's blog.

If you are on a feed reader, click on over and tell me what you think. I
was ready for something newer, brighter and more me. The old look was,
three years ago? Yikes. I need to keep up.

Since it's Friday, let's do some catching up, shall we?

1} We are gearing up for a long weekend here. We have our kids in an
American school here and one of the biggest reasons we picked that over putting
them in the local British schools was because we wanted them to have the same
holidays that J. would have. That way, when we have US only holidays like MLK
and Columbus Day, we can take a long weekend to travel as a family. That said,
I have no idea yet if we will go anywhere this weekend. Because.....

2} Our family has been passing around a stomach virus this week and bless
his heart, it's Keller's turn today. I'm praying (HARD) that Caroline doesn't
get it. I'd rather have it twice than have her get it. There's nothing worse
than a baby having a stomach virus. It's just pitiful.

3} I need my hair colored in the worst way. I actually found a salon here
that I love but to get my basic highlights done there, it's a minimum of a three
hour appointment. Boys and girls, I just don't have that kind of time on my
hands. Therefore, I'm going to be completely gray headed by approximately
6:30PM EST.

4} I might have mentioned a time or twelve that I miss Target. I'm sorry
to repeat myself but y'all, what I wouldn't give to shop some orange sticker
clearance at the Big Red Bullseye. To add insult to injury, they don't ship to
APO (that's US military postal service for you non-mil types) so I can't even
shop online. Bah.

5} I don't really have a number five but it seems better to end on 5 than
4. Kind of like David Letterman never does a Top 9 list. Just doesn't have the
same ring.

Oh wait, I do have something else. I am thinking I might give Ms.
Mel another chance because today, I can actually walk without tears. I'll
let you know if we make up.


  1. CAME OVER FROM Kelly's Korner. Wher in England are you stationed? We were at RAF Croughton for 3 years---and would go back in a heartbeat:) (To England, not so much RAF Croughton)

  2. Tammy, we are at RAF Alconbury! I totally get what you mean because I like England but the very SMALL base thing is taking me a while. Are you guys AF?

  3. Aww look how big your kids are! I'm so behind I didn't know you PCSd to England ... hope this is a fun assignment for you guys! I'd love to go overseas but not sure if that will happen.

    Thank you so much for your comment on my Coming Full Circle post; it really meant a lot!

  4. Stomach flu sucks!!! I hope the babe doesn't get it too, that is the worst ever.

    No Target...I am so sorry. Can I take the stomach flu over no Target?

  5. You have a great blog!

    I have a blog as well, but I’m only able to update it when big events occur so I can remember them later in my daughter’s life. ☺

    I am a freelance writer and I was wondering if you’d be interested in a writing opportunity I have for moms.

    Email me for details:

  6. Hi! I found your blog thru Kelly's Korner. We found out today that we might be moving to RAF Lakenheath, and I remembered Kelly did a SUYL military, so I headed over to find some England blogs :) I know zero about living oversees. I'm am Arkansas girl living in Texas. Looking forward to following future posts of yours!
