What's Up a week into the New Year!

So here is my 2nd blog of the New Year! I did not make promises of how often I would blog like I have in the past... just that I would blog. LOL! 

Last week enjoyed the last few days of vacation. We were mostly very LAZY!  Our days were made of staying up late watching movies and sleeping late in the mornings. It was AWESOME!!!
I enjoyed just having down time with the kiddos before the crazy schedule of life started this week.

So this week we started back to f school and are back the grind! The boys were ready to get back to work. They have this philosophy that the more they work the closer it gets to summer! That we are all ready for especially after the 2014 "polar vortex" .  It has been freezing! The coldest in a decade here in the south.  I try not to complain about it too much....  We could have it so much worse... all you have to do is log into Facebook to see how bad the weather is in other areas of the country....  Not just the weather though.... it seems like Facebook has been covered in tragedy lately. From sickness, death, accidents, etc. I really do not have the right to complain about a little cold air.

So there is a little update. The countdown has started for our first dance competition in a week. I think I am as excited as the boys are! I can't wait to see them compete!  So for now.... I am off to finish homeschooling and working on my Valentine Mini Session Package! Hope everyone has had a great start to their week!

New Year... New Blog

So... It's January 2014... and  we all are making New Year's resolutions...... blah, blah, blah.... I don't mean to be a Debbie Downer but this is a yearly thing no one seems to keep up with EVER! I know I am guilty of making an entire list of "resolutions" or "do better this year list".... whatever we decided to call it that year... and by January 15th of each year must of the "promises" have been compromised in one fashion or another.   So for me this year.... I just think I will do whatever I can to make things "better" or "different" in the moment I am in.

For those of you who know me and know me well and have known me for many years, you know that I was once a VERY faithful blogger. I blogged daily sometimes multiple times daily. I had a pretty huge following of readers and I really enjoyed sharing my life with anyone interested.  I shared everything from family moments, people, places, and things that I enjoyed,  political and religious views, ideas, feelings, etc. You name it... it was in my blog. Here is the thing about my blog... it was always real, raw, and to the point. It was however I was feeling that day... heck, some days I didn't even you punctuation or proper  grammar. I have been know to type in entire lower case or upper case. However I was feeling that day.   So why did I stop blogging? I guess there are many different reasons..... First of all I found I was expecting baby #3 and it totally stopped me dead in my tracks.... it was if life stood still, busy... busy... busy... life is SO busy, but I guess the number one reason is the hurt I felt from some of the people I loved most. Many discussions, good and bad, came from my blogging days. It is crazy how people who have a difference in opinion with you can just write you off  just because of personal opinions and beliefs. 

So with that being said.... I guess if I were going to make a New Year's resolution, change, etc.... whatever we want to call it.... my biggest thing would be to rid myself of hurt and intimidation of what people think in almost every single area of my life. So with that being said... it is the return of the ALLISON BAGWELL BLOG!!! LOL!!! 

I have to admit that I absolutely loved blogging and to be honest with technology in this current day... it is just an open book,  journal , or diary that I can leave behind for my precious children.  I am sure that I am going to have readers again who love my blog and people who think I am just a weirdo...but... for those of you know me... you know I really don't care and at the end of the day..... I am a weirdo. LOL!  So here it goes.... just a little update on my life in the past couple of years...

2.  Loving my precious kids.... Eli just turned 15...(gulp),  Bleeze is 8, and Miss Priss Suri is now 2.
