Well Hi

Wow, almost two months since I’ve been on here! My apologies! Lots has gone on… let’s see where to start:

Quincy came home! And then left… and then came home again!

We celebrated Easter in LA.

And saw Willie Nelson live.

We found out we are moving to DC… in a few weeks!

And so we bought another house! (House #3 for the Bahlers will take us to Alexandria. We are SO excited to be in a big city again!)

In anticipation of our move, we drove my car from Los Angeles to Nashville. It took 4 days, and Carl was a trooper!

And finally, we three are living under one roof again!

More to come now that I am settled and back in TN 🙂

What a year.

We bought a house.

Quincy deployed for 4 months.

I moved in and lived by myself, which was by far the scariest thing I’ve ever done.

We celebrated one year together.

Carl turned 2!

We started and almost finished a major kitchen renovation.

I completed my Master’s degree and started a great job.

Q was promoted and transitioned to a new job.

We made a lot of homemade meals.

And went 6 weeks without a sink, washing dishes outside.

We traveled quite a bit: DC, Greenwich, NY, Austin, Napa, Hawaii, and Santa Barbara.

We nested together in our new home.

Bring it 2015!

That Time I Turned Into a Hippie

Guys, I’ve officially turned into a hippie. This converted Southern belle/Los Angeles gal has turned a new leaf (hahaha). So what turned me into a crazy person… I’ve found a love for essential oils. Q calls them my “snake oils,” but I am fully convinced they make me healthier, more focused, and best of all sleep better. It’s crazy, I know. Me = hippie.

It all started before I headed to my girlfriend’s wedding in Napa. The day before I was set to get on a plane, I felt horrible- scratchy throat, flu-ish, like I wanted to stay in bed all day. I was terrified of getting on a plane and feeling like that, so I called my girlfriend, Laura, who had been talking about these crazy oils. I was desperate and I told her to load me up. So she gave me a diffuser and a couple of oils and sent me home with instructions. And 24 hours later- feeling like 90% of myself. 48 hours later – 100% back to normal. I was a believer.

So I bought some oils and a diffuser and Q thought I was crazy (and still does). And when I feel sick, I swipe some oils in my mouth and diffuse in my house. When I’m sore after a workout, I make some bath salts with oils. And when I’m tired, oh ya there’s an oil for energy. For teaching, it is the best germ killer and I have that diffuser running all day long. Hippie dippie Koko has arrived folks! I know it’s weird and sort of out there, but I love them.

bath salts

And I guess it runs in the genes since my mom has been using essential oils for 20+ years…. so I guess I had a little hippie in me from the start 🙂

I use Young Living oils because they are 100% pure and therapeutic grade.I completely trust them to ingest, diffuse, rub all over 🙂

WOW I can’t believe it has been over a week since I last blogged, whoops!

Here’s the last two weeks in a nutshell: Q returned home from training in Arizona (finally have him back for a good chunk of time); we watched fireworks together and celebrated the Fourth early on post; we painted three huge rooms in our house; then traveled to California for a wedding of our two great friends; came home; Q started a new position at work; and this weekend we are having a BBQ to celebrate his birthday; PHEW. And here are pictures to prove it all:
