Bell's Recovery and My Life Recently

It's gone! The Bell's Palsy is gone. Well almost. You wouldn't know if you looked at me. Unless I was laughing. Hard. That's the only time it shows up. AND when I'm super tired, or I've stared at a computer screen for a long time, my eye twitches a lot. Honestly, I was SO BLESSED to not have it more than two weeks. The steroids worked, but let's just say the week I was on them was VERY interesting. I've never been on anything stronger than ibuprofen, so my body/personality freaked the heck out. Coming off the steroids wasn't pretty either, but you know, it helped cure me, so I'm not really complaining.

I'd like to blame the Bell's for my recent hide out from blogging, instagram and anything social, but that would be lying and be laziness. Well, actually, I hated how I looked so I did shy away from instagram and I guess that meant I didn't really have any pictures to share from my weeks off the social scene.

Pretty much I have been reading, listening to books on CD and working out like a crazy woman. I joined a gym because the only way I can make myself work out is by paying for it and knowing that if I don't use the membership  it would be a complete waste of money, which would make me feel really bad because the King and I are trying to save as much money as possible to buy a house. So far, it's working.

Also, I got a new calling at church. I'm now teaching the young women (ages 12-18) in my church every Sunday. Lets just say I'm intimidated and overwhelmed, but blessed. I've also seen recently, the more I turn my time to helping others, doing the Lord's work and taking care of this here body of mine, I am happier and   less stressed out. Two things I wanted for my 2013.

I'm devoting more time to my husband. At least I think I am. I should probably ask him, huh? I'm trying to be less devoted to my technological devices and more devoted to him. I hate that we will be driving in the car to  do something together and I'm on the phone and he's trying to get my attention and I'm saying mindless things like, "oh, cool," and, "uh huh." That's bad wife of the year material right there.

Speaking of the King and I, I'm thinking of changing my blog name.
What say ye? Good idea? Bad idea?
I am going to be redesigning my blog and wanted to go in a more "it's our life blog" route with the King.
Also, I want to get him to guest post. Everyone comment if you want to hear from him.

Well, happy Friday everyone. I really hope life is treating you swell.

OHHHHH!!!! And please join The Blogger Book Club this month if you read (or have seen the movie - yes, we love cheaters) The Other Boleyn Girl by Philippa Gregory. Next month is Something Borrowed!

  2. I'm so glad your bells palsy went away so fast! i was just wondering about it yesterday and wrote you a text- decided I should call you instead and deleted it!! so expect a call this weekend :) also, posts from ben would be really funny-- however... I've always liked your blog name mucho!

    1. I cannot wait to talk to you. I've been meaning to call you and I cannot believe I've been horrible at staying in touch. I thought you probably hated me because I haven't called you in forever. I LOVE YOU SO MUCH THOUGH!!!

  3. I love your blog name and think it also applies now to you and Ben's life together. Yes, I would love to hear from my son Ben as a guest post. So glad your feeling better!

  4. This is such a cute idea, would love to hear from King!

    Have a great weekend,

  5. Kaylee, I am so happy! My heart is singing for you! What a blessing that it went away so fast. As for the eye twitching. . .I still get them even til this day. I can't wait to blog about my box I received today. I felt like a kid on Christmas morning. I am so in love with my box!! XOXO Thank you, my sweet friend

  6. I am really happy for you. :)

    Kisses, Lucy :)

  7. Were you by chance on predinsone?!!?! If you were WORST drug ever. I was on it for a time with rheumatoid arthritis and I HATED the way it made me feel and my face blew up like a chipmunk!! Glad to hear you are off of whatever it was and feeling better. I have often thought of getting my husband to do a guest post too! Think it is always fun to hear what the men have to say in our lives!

  8. bring on the King! also what great news about your bells palsy going away!

  9. So glad your better! Love your blog!
    Just followed you, hope you will follow my blog too!


  10. Wow!! So crazy to hear you got Bell's. I didn't know it was something that could 'go away'... I had a family friend that got it during her pregnancy, so I guess she couldn't take meds like you did to get rid of it. Scary to think about! But glad you are doing better!!! We went to high school together, I am the same age as your sister Lindsay... but my name is different since I got married, I was a Wiley :) Can't wait to follow your blog though!!

    I'm over at :)

  11. Hey I'm new to the blogging world and I would love to get more followers! Would you be willing to do a button swap with me? At the very least I'd like to promote your blog by adding your button to my blog! Feel free to check out my budding blog, Slightly Strange, over at and would love your advice about how to make it better!
