Powell

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.

Just because I haven’t posted here in ages….

He’s coming home =)

And I’ve never been more excited and terrified in my life

Oh, boredom.

Oh, boredom.

Happy Father’s Day to the greatest father and husband! We can’t wait to get you home 💙

Well, I decided to be brave today, so here is my #transformationtuesday ….I only wish I was as tan in the after picture as I appear, but that is due to the lighting in the room lol. If I’ve proved anything to myself since he has been gone, it’s that if I stay very committed to something, I can make some pretty cool things happen. This is only a work in progress at the moment. It has definitely not been easy, but being able to keep up with Dean and not getting so winded carrying groceries up stairs has definitely made this well worth it.

My back is killing me.

I am hormonal and because of this, a few face demons have appeared and I hate them.

I am lonely.

I’m tired of so called friends blowing me off.

I miss my husband

And…

Sex.

Ugh.

Silly baby 💙

#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
