7 years ago today I told @sgthalfrobot
he wasn’t deploying without marrying me. He gave me a call and told me his deployment date had changed—to several months before our wedding. So, we went from a June wedding to a December wedding. Thankful for the Army moving up Andrew’s deployment and giving me 7 more months of being Mrs. Smith. #blastProofMarriage #marryyourbestfriend #myguy #godisgood
I hate camping.
There, I said it. I hate sleeping inside canvas, I hate airbeds, I hate how damp the tent gets with the morning dew. I would much rather be inside my house or, even better, in a hotel.
But one thing I don't hate about camping is this. Look at that sunset. It was so beautiful and I'm so glad Gareth managed to get this picture. I even enjoyed walking to the toilet block at 6.45 in the morning and listening to the silence while the sun peeked over the top of the tents.
If someone wants to invent a tent which has all the luxuries of a hotel room, I'll be all over it 🏕️🌄 #camping #ihatecamping #summersunset
Yesterday we got the pleasure to witness, and help with our friends' wedding. As you can tell we had fun with it! It was an honor to be with the bride and her bridal party most of the day leading up to the big moment. I was there to assist in anyway needed. I curled hair, ran errands and tried to be a calming force in the midst of a whirlwind of preparation. I was so happy that the bride and her best gal remembered to bring their essential oils cause I totally botched it and forgot mine! 😳 Prayer, along with Stress Away, Valor and Orange oils were our support all day long! The ceremony was outside and absolutely gorgeous! We went as a family, and I enjoyed watching our children engage as the ceremony took place. As I listened to the pastor officiate the wedding, it gave me such fond memories of my own. Life in all it's craziness can create a haze over those long ago memories. It was so special to have a moment where the memories of the day we made our commitment came into focus and I could see more clearly in my minds eye the unconditional love, the giddy joy, unhindered faith, and hope we shared that day as we stood at an alter much like our friends were doing. I am so grateful we got to be a part of #itrileyhappened
So what do you get for a bride and groom that need things in every room?... 👰🏻🤵🏻💍🏠 🤔
Lol We had so much fun this weekend making our wedding registry!
81 days to go which means we are so busy trying to check everything off the list!!!
In a lil over 4 months, I have made over $600 in this coaching business and I’m just getting started! I never would have thought that I would be on my way to a freaking shiny DIAMOND 💎, BUT I AM. 🎉🎉
I also never thought, that I would be in better shape than I was playing college softball, BUT I AM. I’ve lost over 15 lbs since starting and have went down a whole pant size. I’m AMAZED!!! 💫🌟✨
My team is hosting a coaching sneak peak and I want you guys to be there!!! If you have ever had interest in doing what I do; drop an emoji below 🎉🍌☀️🌻💐 or fill out the poll in my story!! I would love for you to join me on this journey!! Did I mention it’s FREE?!?!
This is my all time favorite program. 4 days a week. Simple meal plan. Treat days. Lifting, HIIT, and abs. 30-40 minutes each. I will say that I wish I could see more of a difference in the two photos, but it is continual motivation to continue pushing through the second half of it! August 27th begins my next bootcamp, and you can choose whatever program you want! AND! On September 17th I will be starting this program AGAIN! I’d love to have you join me girl. Day one or one day, you decide. If you don’t make time for yourself, no one else will for you. Choose this for YOU. 💓 send me an email or click the link in my bio to learn more📍

I always say I’m a weird introvert - I am seriously SO shy and don’t like to be around a bunch of people for very long, BUT at the same time, I HATE going out and doing things alone.
Almost like I’m more self-conscious when I’m by myself which makes me want to run and hide. 🤷🏻♀️
That’s one reason I love my online wellness coach gig SO much!
I get to decide if I want to work at home - or - hit up a friend for coffee while we both get stuff done (cause you know, I hate being in coffee shops alone 🙅🏻♀️).
Or the funnest is when I’m with my fellow teammates who are also coaches - and we all get a work hour in together 👆🏻👯♀️💛
Since most of my interactions are online - I save SO much energy.
I don’t go home at the end of the day like I used to, and hide under a blanket because I just can’t ‘people’ anymore.
And oh my gosh - let’s talk about the gym. I WONT go there alone - so thank God for my Fitness Netflix!
Making money by getting fit from home - perfect job for this one 🙋🏻♀️
I’m looking for 6 new girls to add to my team!
If this sounds like a side gig you need in your life, join me next week for an info session with my team, as we explain more about what this coaching thing is all about.

A year ago I was working full time, going to school full time, and most of the time, was afraid to check my bank account. I was missing birthdays, holidays, and basically all family events. I was going through the motions of life but I wasn’t really living. I also was in the worst health I had ever been in so you could say my feelings toward myself and my life were awful.
Today, I am the healthiest & happiest I have ever been. I am actually passionate about something for the first time in a long time and I am finally not living paycheck to paycheck. I have a community of like-minded women and a support system I never thought was possible. My job is pretty freaking awesome & my team is only just starting to grow.
I am looking for 10-15 HARDWORKING & DRIVEN women who want to kick some booty in this fitness industry TOGETHER. No six pack required, or even a ton of followers - as full fitness AND social media training is provided 🤓 All you need is a passion for health & wellness and a desire to want to share that with the world!

Some time in the middle of August 14 years ago 2 best friends decided their love for each other was worth risking everything. Against all odds and most everyones opinion, we took that risk! The smartest thing I ever did was make you all mine. We don't just get to grow old together, we got to grow up together and that's the real adventure ❤ #soulmate #bestfriend #marryyourbestfriend #growingoldtogether
Behind every great man. There is a even greater woman who got him where he stands today. I am by no means a great man. Not a hero. If I’m anything, I’d have to assume I’m more of an anti hero. But. Despite who I am. Despite who I’ve become. There’s a woman behind me that’s had my back through the good times and the bad. I’ve done everything wrong as a husband. I’ll cop to that. That’s why I’m gonna be better. There is no question. My queen deserves to be treated like one. So. Megan, when you read this. Know that this is where I change. And I be the man you deserve. I don’t just wanna be your husband. I want to go back to being your best friend that you married. Ride or die babygirl.

Are you currently in. Relationship you're happy with? I'd love to hear about it! Click the link in my bio to better understand your relationships!
Today I am grateful for my job and being able to work from home so I can spend time with this hunk💕 I love the freedom the coach life gives me! Who wouldn’t want to work from home, have your hubby bring your snacks, and take work breaks with your best friend?! #rgvgratitudeproject
Almost 14 years, and I still get excited about dates with @longtabbrewing
With kids and deployments and entrepreneurial ventures (for both of us), life can get pretty crazy. Carving out time for dating...and laughing...and just enjoying each other’s company...is so vital. This man has seen me at my best - and definitely at my worst. He keeps my laughing through it all. Grateful heart. #latergram #datenight #ilovetolaugh @vicidolls
Praise! Double tap if you’ve dodge a bullet before
☀️☀️New blog post up☀️☀️
I was reading a section of a book for school where the author interestingly chose to compare a poem about fighting death to fighting for marriage:
“Do not to gentle into that good night. Rage, rage against the dying of the light.”
It stuck with me as reminder that patience and perseverance are necessity in life and to keep fighting no matter what. .
More on that, including some feedback from studies, on the blog today
You will forever be my favorite! ❤️❤️
On Wednesday, Michel and I will be heading up to the Oregon Coast to Lincoln City for 5 days😍 We are going up there for a wedding but heading up a few days early so we can spend some time together & explore the coast! Super excited to have a 5 day getaway together!🌊❤️
Family trip to Lowe’s ❤️🐾
So, your ass couldn’t have asked me WHILE I was in the kitchen mofo?!
Type “I can relate” if I’m telling the truth
