Weekend Recap: A Wedding, Tattoos, & Road Trips | Keating & Co.

Happy Tuesday!  I hope you all had a wonderful long weekend.  My weekend was pretty jam-packed and full of awesomeness.  I definitely have no complaints from my entire weekend.  I couldn’t have asked for a better past few days. FRIDAY I had most of Friday to myself and it was very uneventful.  I’m not evenRead more

Five On Friday: Weekly Happenings | Why Hello Lovely

Happy Friday everyone!  I hope you all had a wonderful week!  It’s been busy around here lately and I realized I really haven’t posted much about anything that’s going on here.  You all know Zack is overseas, but other than that, I really haven’t been sharing too much about life.  So today I just wantedRead more

I Do It Because I Have To

I Do It Because I Have To | Keating & Co.

When people find out Zack is stationed overseas, their first reaction (aside from “wow, that sucks”) is “I don’t know how you do it.” I get it constantly.  And honestly, I had no idea how other people did it either.  I looked at other military spouses who have gone through a dozen deployments and thought they hadRead more

Currently | 1 Month Check-In

Currently: 1 Week Check-In | Keating & Co.

Well, as of tomorrow, I’ve officially survived month 1 of this 11-12 month separation.  I feel like I just wrote my week 1 check-in and now here I am with my 1 month check-in.  My 1 week check-in was filled with so many different emotions with anger and sadness being at the top of that list.  It was aRead more

An Open Letter To My Husband

Dear Zack, I’m sorry.  I know I’ve been extra challenging to deal with lately, so I guess that’s the best way to start this letter.  I’m sorry for being a really crappy military wife.  As a “regular” wife, I feel like I’m pretty good most times.  I love being your wife.  But I’m a lousyRead more

1 Week Check-In

1 Week Check-In | Keating & Co.

Today marks one week since Zack left.  One week down and about 51 left to go (give or take a week or two).  It definitely hasn’t been an easy past week.  Saying goodbye at the airport was probably one of the worst feelings I’ve ever experienced.  I felt so defeated and helpless.  There was nothingRead more

Weekend Recap | Lobster, Family & Bar Hopping

Happy Monday!  How was your weekend?  Was it good?  I hope so!  I’m officially feeling very homesick and missing North Carolina a lot.  I don’t even feel like myself anymore which is really upsetting to me.  Zack hasn’t even left yet, but it feels like my entire life and identity have been taken from meRead more

A Surprise Wedding Reception

Happy Friday everyone!  I hope you all had a lovely week.  I’ve missed you all dearly this past week.  I can’t wait to get back into a schedule so I can keep up with you all.  If you didn’t catch the first half of this post which was posted on Tuesday, then you can readRead more

Feeling All The Feels Today

Feeling All The Feels Today | Keating & Co.

Guys, I am feeling all the feels today.  I truly feel bipolar sometimes.  Last night, we visited a friend and our friend Eric asked me if I’d be okay this next year while Zack’s overseas.  It was honestly the first time someone has asked me if I’ll be okay and I immediately broke down crying.  IRead more
