If you are new here, welcome to this blog o' mine! We like to have fun not only with fashion but life!! We talk about all things from the craziness that comes with having kids (plural intended), places this crew of mine travels (sometimes kid-less), daycays (my word for one-day vacations), trying to keep our bodies healthy (as a stay at home/working mom), along with a few healthy recipes we come up with on the fly. We act silly, make fun of ourselves and always, always laugh through it all.
 
 
For the last 13 years, I've been an Army helicopter pilots' spouse hence the former blog name armylifeaviatorwife. I graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Hawaii with a BBA in 2008. My husband and I will celebrate our 15th anniversary in July and our kids are 8 and 4. Mav retired from the Army not a month ago and is now currently training for helicopter firefighting. I do feel blessed to spend my days with my kids while they are young.
 
 
My pics aren't perfect but I'm (hubbys') learning. Isn't that what life's about? So won't you join me on this crazy journey?  I invite you to come in, stay a while and get to know me. All are welcome here. Make sure to enter your email at the right and never miss a post or check me out on Bloglovin'!
 
 
Leave me a comment to let me know not only who you are but how you are. Visit my about me page to learn more about moi! Also for my daily ramblings follow me on Instagram!

I'm so sorry ladies. Will you forgive me? I've had such a nice vacation from this little blog, I'd almost forgotten about it. Nah, not really. It's always on my mind and in my heart and I feel rejuvenated just sitting here thinking of what to say. I hope you checked out the weekly happenings in my life on Instagram. If you haven't followed me yet, its a must!! You will love it. Check me out @sunshinesequinsblog. Don't forget to leave me a comment! I love to hear from all of you!


Let me tell you, over the last month, I came so close to changing my middle name to "transition".  Not pretty, I know, but that is what I felt like the last several weeks. I've driven from Alabama to Arkansas with two kids and five cats. I've driven back to Alabama to finalize all the moving stuff and watch as people packed all my things in boxes. I've taken a daycay (my word for a day trip) to the beach one last time before we left our home in Alabama. I've then driven back to Arkansas with two kids. Enrolled my child and settled him in school. Changed doctors, dentists and a few pull ups. I've flown to Montana to see Mav at his new job and check out the local area for a possible move, i.e. Summer vacay house hunt! Holla ya'll! Then back to Arkansas again to get everyone settled and start my new job. Phew! As I said, the name of the game is change. We could be here all day with me dramatizing my life stuff. 


I'm feeling the need to take a vacay from all the change though and get into what I know and love, my comfort zone: fashion, style, street chic, whatever you wanna call it. It keeps me grounded, excited for a new day and ready to hit the pavement running (which, btw, I've picked up again).


I'll begin by saying the outfit in this post was photographed over a month ago. Yep, that's how crazy life's been. My only access to the web has been through my phone and various hotel wi-fi's. Ugh. Hopefully that's all in the past. For this month, anyway.


For hubby, things have really changed. He decided to pass up one opportunity for another one placed in his lap with a company he truly adores doing a job he's always wanted-heavy lift helicopter firefighting or (from what I've gathered in convos) longlining. We are really blessed as a family. While this particular job will have him away from the family for weeks, it's doing something he truly, deeply loves. That is worth the separation. Let me think....hmmm? I remember thinking this same thing when he got the news his unit was to deploy one more time. But with love comes sacrifice.
