Marana, AZ
Six years ago when I relocated to North Carolina, I was a young, single, and an inexperienced professional trying to figure out what the next phase of my life was going to look like. Today, I am knocking on 30 years old, working in a field I enjoy, married, and I have three beautiful children. I share not to brag, but I just want to put all of that out into the atmosphere to acknowledge how THANKFUL to God I am for this season in my life. I am blessed. My life is soooooo far from perfect. I don't ever want to give an illusion that everything is perfect, because it is not. My kids wear me out, I don't have enough QT with my husband, I don't go to church enough, we don't have access to Little R half as much as we would like, and the list goes on and on. Through all the not so great things, I still have so much appreciation for life. God is so good y'all.

Saturday Happenings

  • Riley started preschool 2 weeks ago. I received an email on Wednesday that a kid in his class was diagnosed with hand, foot, mouth disease. Last night he spiked a fever. This morning he woke up with a rash on his hands and feet. OH JOY! Mind you, just earlier this week we visited the dermatologist to get his eczema under control. I was extremely pleased with the results of the meds the dermatologist prescribed for him. I saw results within one day. 
  • I say all of that to say, we are having a very chill weekend. We've watched several movies, listened to lots of nursery rhymes, and I'm trying my best to keep Mia away from Riley as much as possible. 
  • I am currently listening to a radio broadcast of Big R's football game. His team is playing a "money game" a division up. I LOVE Saturday, college football. I'm hopeful the team is going to be able to pull off an upset tonight. 
  • Speaking of Saturday football, our plan was to head to VA to catch Little R's football game this morning; however, those plans were shot since Riley is under the weather. 
  • Big R received Little R's 1st 9 week report card yesterday, and he is doing AMAZING. We are super proud of him for maintaining his outstanding academic performance even with incorporating football into his weekly routine.
  • I'm still tripping I'm over the fact that I'm a mom of three. It all seemed to happen over night. 

That's what's happening over here! Hope you are having a great weekend!

August 13th 2016 | The date I last published a blog post. Y'all I had a WHOLE baby since my last post. Yes, you read that right. December 27th, 2016 my sweet girl, Mia, was born.
And yes, that means she and her brother, Riley are just shy of 18 months apart. Here's Riley now: 
So, there you have one reason why I've been away from blogging for so long. Being a mom of three, with two that are two and under keeps me BUSY. Then, y'all remember Little R. Well friends, Little R will be TEN years old next month. #icantdeal

Hughey Party of Four was very short-lived. We are now a COMPLETE (I ain't having no' mo' kids!) Party of Five. 
ALSO, I will begin a new professional venture this upcoming Monday, and I am feel reinvigorated. With that said, I'm BACK. Hopefully to stay!
