A Memorial Day to Remember

Life is precious, life is sweet.
I am so thankful for all our men and women who sacrifice/d their lives for our freedom. I can't imagine what it is like day in and day out. I never want to see the front lines. I feel for the families who rarely see their heroes and cry for the ones who never will again. I commend the wives who hold down the fort and remain so brave for their family.
We celebrated, remembered, and honored at home yesterday. Nothing big. Just the 3 of us outside for as long as we could stand it at least. Ryan cooked a brisket, which as I am writing this remembered I never took a picture of his hard work. :( He was disappointed in it (it was a little dry). I felt so bad for him, he worked all through the night to make sure it would be just right. Trial and Error. This was only his 2nd one to ever do! I know my man will get it!
Here are a few pics from our day!

Coconut Oil

If you don't know about this product...

It is amazing for so many reasons! I use it as my moisturizer, skin care, hair care, and to shave with! The possibilities are endless. I use it in the shower all over (plus as my shaving cream) and it leaves my skin feeling so AMAZING. If I feel I want a little more moisture I lather it on as my lotion (it is a little oil at first but dries quickly). If my hair is in need of a little oil treatment I rub it all in my hair, throw on a shower cap for 30 mins, wash out and repeat in a couple of weeks! Now, after researching, I also use it as my face wash. I use it in the morning either just in the sink or shower and it acts as my moisturizer before make-up. And then again at night, however, I still use Aveeno to get my make-up off, but then I mix the coconut oil with baking soda until it makes a paste, rub that all over and wipe with a warm rag! I'm telling you this is a versatile product (you can even cook with it and it's much healthier), money saver, and so good for your body!

You're welcome ! :)

Long time coming...

It has been almost a year since I've blogged...and SO much has changed! We now have a toddler. A new temporary residency. I am currently not teaching. Ryan got a promotion! We're working on getting completely out of debt. We are extremely busy all the time it seems! There are so many more things in the works for us! I'll reveal in time.

What's been going on in your world?
