My name Is Michel, I am a full time student majoring in education, a full time wife to my airman, and a full time mother to our two fur babies for now! I am a southern girl at heart and proud of it. I enjoy just about any outdoor activities, and love basketball. Coffee is definitely my weakness, especially here in the North West. I adore my husband and our family. We miss them much but enjoy our life in the Air Force.

My Airman, a lovable, caring, sweet, car loving, hardheaded man! : ) but he is my world. He is a boom operator in the Air Force and so far he loves his job. When he isn’t working he is probably working on his car, or on the internet finding things for his car. He is crazy, but you just can’t ask for a better husband.

Highschool sweathearts, that stuck together trough it all and ended up falling head over heels for each other. Married on November 23, 2009 and loving our wild and crazy life as two southerners living in the Northwest!

Race For the Cure

Today was an amazing day with a group of amazing people I have here. It was the Race For the Cure, and a bunch of us got together and we registered for this race, made shirts to enter into the t-shirt contest, and planned a big day around it. We ended up raising over 1,000 dollars for breast cancer in the process to and our shirts we made ended up raising 180 dollars. So all in all we had fun doing a good deed. I have ran many 5k's in my life, considering I did run cross country in high school, but this thing was huge. There were so many people here and it took forever for us to get started and weave our way through the massive amounts of people. But it was truly a blast and even though it took me 29 min to run it, it was still fun! We also won the contest for our t-shirts and got a gift card to a coffee shop here. Oh yes. we ended up stuffing our faces at Red Robin after and my two of my friends came home to get our puppies to take them to the park. It was a beautiful sunny day here and I was not letting it go to waste. I also signed up today for Blooms Day. Which is another Race here in Washington that is supposedly really big. People from all over travel here to run a 10k and they say there are so many people that it takes an hour for everyone to get past the start line!!! It is going to be interesting. It is in two weeks  so hopefully I can make it 7.46 miles. . .

I am so sad to say goodbye to the weekend but I am counting down the days till my birthday and till when Joe comes home. So they need to hurry!! Hope everyone had a good weekend.


  1. I don't know you, but I'm so proud of you and your friends for doing this. My grandmother, who passed away last year from heart complications, survived breast cancer TWICE! I myself survived ovarian cancer, I've been in remission for 2 years now. Thank you for participating in the race.

    Good luck with the 10k marathon!
