So it begins...

I decided to up my blogging game and do the 31 Day Blogging Challenge with Erica from Looking to the Stars:

We start today, with #1. Introduction and recent photo.

The Mr. and I out shopping and strolling this past weekend, even through the snow!

Well, hi! Hopefully most of you have checked out my "About" page, and already know a little something about me. If you haven't, or if you have, let me give you a refresher.

 I'm Jessy! I'm a Cajun girl from South Louisiana who finally got her act together in life, and  followed her dreams only to landed in Hawaii, living 2 blocks from the beautiful North Shore beaches with her brother as a roommate. My Mr. was a friend of my brothers, and after a couple of months of hanging out, we started dating! Fast forwarding through 4 years:

  •  we got married
  • the Mr. was honorably discharged from the Army (after deciding 9 years was enough for him) 
  • we traveled through Europe- 17 countries in 38 days 
  • had extended visits with both sets of parents
  •  he landed an awesome job in Illinois where we have been for the last 2 years, battling the cold and trying to have as much fun as possible in our lives! 
Our latest mission is Operation Camp-A-Lot, (yes, I like to name things like this) and we've purchased this tent,
 and are currently trying to buy and organize things needed to camp. We've come up with a couple of places to try camping first, you know- get the whole setting up/what we need/tearing down thing down pat, because our ultimate goal this Summer is: to camp near Niagara Falls! I can't wait to share details of that with y'all! 

I LOVE love love this idea that Erica has come up with! Hopefully, it will allow y'all to get to know me better.

What are some questions you've always had for me? Comment below!


  1. Oohhh, I love this idea! What a fun way to get to know who we follow a little better. I think I'm going to join you on this challenge. :) Can't wait to continue to get to know you better. Btw, I am impressed with the camping. I am so not a camper but my husband's family is. It has not gone well for me so far. Both times we've gone camping with them, it has rained and this last time, it did not just rain, but poured, severely stormed and had major wind gusts, lol. I told J the only camping I'm doing from now on is going involve a cabin. However, I highly encourage the Niagara Falls trip. We drove there from WI in July of 2012 and it is by far one of my favorite places we have visited. It was just beautiful and spectacular and fun. :)
