22 Reasons to visit me in Missoula!

22 Reasons to visit me in Missoula!

Rivers and mountains and bison, OH MY!  It's that time of year in Western Montana when I start missing people.  It's not quite spring, everything has melted but the blooms have not started to come out yet and it's been more than 6 months since I have seen anyone in my family.  It's this time of year I start dreaming of road trips back to Colorado and Nebraska to see my friends and family.  I have not made that trip in a while, hopefully this year but just because we can sometimes travel to see Continue reading

Text Messages that Make Me Giggle: Ice Ice Baby

Text Messages that Make Me Giggle: Ice Ice Baby

Have you ever had that one friend who can completely wrap up life in a song?  Or change an entire day with a single text message?  Well I am lucky enough to have a great friend just like that.  Her name is Michelle, we met at Ft. Bliss officially but we met on a Military Spouse website a year or so before that.  We have laughed and cried together, she has seen me loose my mind, and my house in complete chaos.  She hates clutter, and I am the Queen of clutter, she hates messy projects and I live Continue reading

Slightly Obsessed with Candy Crush Level 245

So I may be a bit obsessed with Candy Crush....  Not the whole game in general but Candy Crush level 245.  I have been attempting to beat this level for months!  It is the fact that I could NOT beat it, that has had me obsessed.  It is not the first level I have had a hard time beating.  But there was just something about this level that made me feel like it was mocking me for not being able to beat it.  It has been an ugly battle, Jessi vs. Level 245.  So far it has 10,000,000 Continue reading

Will the Keys find their way Home?

     Bare with me here for a minute, my age is going to be showing with this post.      We are going to start by stepping back in time...... 12 years - give or take.  It was spring of 2002, roughly 6-9 months after 9/11 happened.  I was 20 years old, and living in Nebraska.      Actually living with my Grandparents at the time, one had just had major shoulder replacement surgery - and while she was in surgery my Grandpa had a heart attack in the waiting room.      It was a crazy time, I was Continue reading

Am I Mrs. Rogers? They Want to be my Neighbor

Am I Mrs. Rogers? They Want to be my Neighbor

     We live in the cutest little neighborhood here in Missoula, MT.  I love it!  Its kid friendly, great neighbors there's a church on the block, whats not to love?  I am guessing that is exactly what the writer of this piece of mail (Pictured Below) was thinking when they were in our neighborhood this week.  Although, upon reading it I felt like I was in an episode of Mr. Rogers Neighborhood, and someone was responding to the song.... "Won't you be my neighbor." :) I hope they find a great Continue reading
