creeper(s) be creepin

I'm Alexandra, but you can call me Aly.
I am not as much of an active blogger as I used to be. But my life has picked up quite a bit since I first started blogging.

I married my best friend, the love of my life on May 6th, 2011, who just so happens to be a National Guardsman.

Together, we gave life to our wonderful son, Dean Alan Powell, born on July 4th, 2012.

If you want to drop a line, or if you're curious to know anything, just leave a message in the box below. Give me something to write about.

#throwbackthursday #tbt my baby! This was taken last summer, not long before his birthday, and right before we buzzed the mop on his head. Can’t believe he’ll be turning two in a little over three months!

Today is Epilepsy Awareness Day. It’s a cause I hold close to my heart. Please, feel free to regram this, wear purple to show your support, and most importantly, get educated. 1 in 26 people develop epilepsy at some point in their life. It’s the fourth most common neurological problem. We need a cure. #epilepsyawareness #epilepsyawarenessday #purple #cureepilepsy

I’ve been working on this since December….and I’ve almost reached the halfway point towards my goal. Still have a ways to go yet, but just gonna keep on trucking to see how much more I can lose before Nick comes home. #keepingupwithmydeploymentresolution

You have no idea how happy this makes me. No more worrying if the next shift is gonna show up because I AM the last shift of the day. I hate overnights, and I’m so glad I will never have to worry about being stuck on one ever again after the 30th.

Mind the hair and the expression, I just got home from work. But I am really in love with this dress. Now to get a good strapless because for once in my life, the one I have is too big (!!!) I’m so happy right now. Just don’t tell Nick, don’t want to ruin the surprise lol

Dean’s first time with fingerprints today! Nick was actually not too happy about it. I say, as long as supervision is involved, a little paint can’t hurt. I bought the thick, non drippy kind. He had fun, and that’s all I care about.
