An Everyday, Ordinary, Adventure

Family Vacations Ever wanted to go somewhere and get away for a while? Well why not do it!? Recently my family and I went to Tennessee. My mom and step-dad saved up all year so we could take a week and just let go. It was an adventure I am happy to share with my followers here. Getting Started In the week leading to our trip, I had to figure out what to take. The weather in Indiana has been […]

The Long Awaited Day Has Arrived!!!

Ok, so it may not have been that long and many of you probably haven’t been holding your breath, but I’M BACK! What now? Over the next few posts I’ll be recounting some of the adventures that I haven’t been able to share with you due to lack of internet access. Maybe a preview of some of the next adventures I have planned will make an appearance? You never know what I’m going to do next, and I like it […]

Anchor’s Aweigh!

Here We Go! The time has come my lovelies, for me to set out on this journey. I’m so honored and blessed to have the support system that I do, and thanks to this hotel’s business center I can send one final update on this countdown. I sit here and realize how little time has actually passed since this journey began and how big of a change it has made in my life. I know that I’ll only be gone […]

6 More Days, and a Week’s Worth of Adventure!

Surprise!!! Two weeks ago, my mom had planned a “family and friends Thanksgiving dinner” for me since I will be at boot camp this year. Where I thought maybe two or three other family members and a handful of my friends were coming to enjoy some turkey and mashed potatoes, turned into a going away party for me with a lot of family and friends, friends’ families, friends that are more like family, and a sound booth, neighbors, and way […]

Another Day, Another Adventure

Moving Out – Moving Up Hello my lovely followers! Today was another milestone for me. I officially moved out of my apartment. My belongings are stored safely away and for the next couple weeks I will be living out of two suitcases at my parents’ houses. Every day I am inching closer and closer to my weight goal and to the time I am required to meet to run a mile and a half. I’ll be done with my part-time […]

Who Likes Chili???

I love this type of weather, it’s just cold enough that hot food is the only thing I want to eat (like chili). If you’ve never had chili before let me start off by apologizing because you are missing out, my friends. Next, you are all probably wondering what has prompted this seemingly random rant on this particular dish. Today is the Annual Chili Cook-off at my church!  I am extremely excited because chili is one of my favorite meals […]

T-38 Days and Counting!!!

Hello all my wonderful followers! Today is a momentous landmark for me. It is the start of my final push toward becoming a United States Sailor. Back Home Again… That’s right, I’m moving out of my apartment and going back home to my mom’s. Now most people wouldn’t want to admit that, but I am so blessed and truly thankful to my mom for offering to let me bring my many boxes of stuff to her house to save me […]

Posting fail

Well my lovely followers, I said maybe later that night about a week ago and still hadn’t updated you on the experience from the BSU vs. ISU Football game. Ball State lost 27-20 but I got some really good pictures for it being the first time I’ve ever tried to shoot photos at a non-high school football game. You can check these photos out at the Muncie Free Press Facebook page by clicking here. Thank you all again for your […]

Festival Fun in Muncie, IN

Today I got the opportunity to attend the 38th annual Old Washington Street Festival. Old Washington Street is a historic neighborhood in Muncie. The East Central Neighborhood association has hosted the event since 1967 to fund community activities and to help restore some of the old houses. I spoke with Liz McDonald, a volunteer from the association who was giving tours of the Emily Kimbrough house. “It’s very cool what they are doing here,” she said, “they are starting restorations […]

Journey Onward!

A Few Changes First off, I changed the name of the blog because I wanted it to more reflect me. Second, I plan on writing a lot more to let you all go with me on the journey I have decided to embark on. Now What? If you’ve been following me, then you know that I joined the US Navy Reserves. I will be leaving in November for Boot Camp at the Great Lakes Naval Base in Illinois. After what […]
