Just Checking In

It’s been a few months; let’s catch up. Marriage + Momming Things have been pretty good. In August we moved down the hall to a smaller unit. It’s over 1k less than what we were paying before, so we’re saving a lot of money. We don’t have any space, but surprisingly it hasn’t been annoying. […]

5 Years a Richburg + A Year in DC

I think I start every blog by saying how bad I am at writing consistently. This is why I’ve never really kept a journal. It would basically be an utter waste of my time. Lol. At any rate, I think this should be expected by now. So let’s update on my life, and check back […]

Buh-Bye Texas!

Can I share a story with y’all about this man and how amazing he is? A few years ago his goal was to be a drill instructor, later be an officer, and after the military retire in DC. Immediately after we got married he went to drill instructor school and was at the top of […]

That Time We Got Engaged

Two years ago today, the hott guy in this pic asked me to be his wife. I had just had brain surgery 3 weeks prior and started radiation 4 days before. Felt so gross from weight gain, weight loss from steroids/surgery, being skinny with a belly lol. Felt so crazy from roid-rages (be grateful if […]

It’s Been a Long Time…

Geeze, it has been a while! I’ve been meaning to blog, but I was waiting for Al to update my website so that it’s not linked to Tumblr anymore. We’ve had a lot going on though. Anyway, things have been really great. I got really depressed after my last entry. I got pregnant again, then […]

❤ My Life ❤

Al and I drove to Houston Monday night. I had appointments at MD Anderson Tuesday and Wednesday. The radiation department was a drag as always, but everything else was awesome. Originally, all 4 of my appointments were on Wednesday, but the radiation department called and said my radio-oncologist (the one who incorrectly told me that […]

So I’m living with my husband…

Weird title, right? Well, Al and I are like super married now! Lol. This weekend was awesome. DC was so much fun. I walked at least 4 miles and no doubt felt like my legs were going to fall off, but we had a lot of fun. Saw a lot of neat things, met Al’s […]

Weekend Bliss

I’m on a layover in Charlotte, NC right now. My flight leaves in 26 minutes, and soon after I’ll be seeing my husband, who I haven’t seen since July 2nd. I’m really, really excited that we finally get to live together! Long distances marriages are weird, especially in the beginning of a marriage. I finished […]
