The sign says it all. End of story. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Haha. Just kidding. On September 15, 2021, I try and login to my account to catch up on some engagement and talk about a very disappointing experience from one of our favorite restaurants, only to find that I no longer have access to my account. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I get a message saying that there was some unusual activity on my account and that I needed to enter the security code on my device in order to retrieve my account. The security code did not work, and neither did the next several. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My account was just completely gone. You couldn't look me up online anywhere. On September 17, 2021, I decide to make a completely new profile, @rikkidear, and within 48 hours of having that account, it got shut down too. It was the same issue, I needed a security code to access my account, but it would not send one to my phone. On September 22, I get my new @rikkidear account back, and on September 23, I get my main account @rikkirambles back. If you want to know more about my journey in getting my accounts back, I invite you to read my blog about how I got it back. #Linkinbio

It's not very often that this one snuggles me, much anymore. She's very much in that kid stage of I'm a big girl, I don't need my momma all the time. But then there are days like today, where she snuggles and it makes me happy. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Are your pets cuddlers?

🎉🎉𝟏𝟎𝐊! ᴛʜᴀɴᴋ ʏᴏᴜ!!!!🎉🎉 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I was gonna be all EXTRAAAAAA for this post, I was gonna get the balloons, the decorations, and all that jazz... But then I said WHY?! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Haha. Yeah, being extra isn’t really my thing, but I have a huge announcement. I finally made it to the coveted 10K follower mark. While I'm a firm believer that numbers aren't everything, this is still a HUGE accomplishment for my business. Reaching this Instagram milestone can lead to bigger and better partnerships to help support my family, financially. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ None of this would be possible without all of you, my amazing followers. You believe in me, and support me, and that does not go unnoticed. You are all loved, valued, and appreciated ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ WOW!!! Y'all are awesome!! Now, a little introduction for the newbies! *Mom of 3 (One human girl, and two furbabies) *Fall is my favorite season. *Halloween is my favorite holiday. *I'm a southern girl, through and through. *I love Harry Potter. *I'm a total homebody, and prefer to stay in. *My favorite color is Purple. *I met my husband when I was just 4 years old. *I have 4 older siblings, and I'm the baby.

One of the things that I miss terribly about our old house, back in Nashville, is that I could walk into my backyard, and pet my neighbor's horses.

I can't believe Tamsin has been in school for a month now. She's rockin' first grade. I just got her progress report and she's in the "Progressing" and "Mastery" stages, and that makes me super happy that we had NO "Unsatisfactory" I did get back some of her "tests" that she's been giving, and I'm shocked at what she's learning. She seems to be struggling a little bit with Fact and Opinion, but other than that she had passing grades. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Ps: How adorable is this shirt from my friends' new clothing line? @recklesshalo

We went to the Dr. a week and a half ago for Tamsin's well-child checkup. The Dr. ordered some bloodwork because of Tamsin's weight. We have to go back and re-do bloodwork to see if it was just a fluke thing because of something she ate that day. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My momma nerves are on high today. No matter what the results say, I'm going to adjust Tamsin's diet a little bit to healthier options. What are some healthy recipes & snacks that you make that your kids enjoy? Tamsin is a picky eater, so I'm going to need creative advice for healthy foods.

Happy National Dog Day! 🐶🐕🦮🐩🐕‍🦺

These shirts are literally a life saver. Tamsin came home from school the other day COVERED in stains from SLOPPY JOES that they served at lunch! 🙄 I was so upset because her brand new uniforms were stained, and even though I ran them through the wash, I didn't get the stain out. I'm so thankful for these shirts! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Meet @thegooddaylab, a new project from SchoolMaskPack™, they are on a mission to bring good days for kids and parents by solving life’s little messes, and saves me a lot of time (and money) by reducing the amount of laundry that I have to do each week! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The Clean Shield Tech helps form a barrier around the exterior of the fabric, that repels liquids, including the water used to clean off the stain, so you can literally watch stains roll away before your eyes! No detergent or stain-cleaning solution necessary, it's built into the shirt! Designed directly with the input of over 1,000 parents and involved kids in every step of the process. This t-shirt is designed to be the ultimate kids' shirt and the ultimate time-saver for parents everywhere. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Ready for a stain-free day (or seven)?

Did you guys see my stories last week? We had to take Hulk to the vet, because he had an accident. He was out playing in the yard and all of a sudden he started whining and I ran out there to check on him and he wasn't using one of his hind legs at all. It was hanging limp, and he just drug it behind him! My fur mama fears were on high, I thought that he had gotten his leg caught in our fence somehow and when he tried to pull it out it broke or dislocated. We ended up driving to 4 different vets offices that were open that early and 3 of the 4 couldn't see us because they only had ONE Dr for that day! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This is something I need to express to any of my vet friends out there! ANIMALS HAVE EMERGENCIES TOO! When they get hurt, it's more than likely not going to happen during "OFFICE HOURS". In this instance I was angry that we had moved, because in Nashville there are many different vet offices that are "EMERGENCY" meaning they stay open later than all others. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Luckily for us, the final vet office that we went to was able to see him and check him out. He's fine, no broken bones, no dislocated him. But he is getting older, and he has osteoarthritis. While I'm super thankful that he's okay, it still hurts my momma heart that he's getting older! He's been in my life for 11 years now. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Do you love and care for your pets like you do your own kids? I love my dogs just as much as Tamsin, and when they are hurt I freak out just as much as I would Tamsin!

I can not get over the fact at how in this picture Tamsin looks like she did when she was a baby! She looks so small, and baby-faced. But don't let this picture fool you, she is anything but! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ She is a strong, very independent and super smart First-Grader as of last week! How did this summer go by so fast? Before I know it, I'm going to blink and she's going to be driving off to college!

So, a few weeks ago, one of the last weeks of summer vacation Tamsin got the opportunity to stay with her Nana and PopPop. It was rough on Ethan and I, as we have never been away from her that long before. But it was so good for her little soul! She needed that time away to explore and visit her Nana and PopPop, and so did we. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What was a hard decision you had to make recently, that was in the best interest of your kids?

I just listened to another woman’s podcast that I COMPLETELY DISAGREED WITH!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Guess what!? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I did NOT comment. I did NOT feel the need to criticize her. I did NOT talk about her to someone else. I did NOT send her a message. I did NOT feel the need to discredit her. I did NOT try to make her look inept to her followers. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I DID think she was brilliant. I DID think she was eloquent. I DID think she was brave. I DID think she had some points for me to think about. I DID listen to her entire message. I DID respect her platform. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Crazy, right!? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I had a different opinion than the one she was offering, and I did NOT feel like I had to share mine. 😊️

I am so proud of Tamsin lately! She has been an only kid all of her life, and with that she doesn't have very many other outside influences besides Ethan and myself. So when she does get to play with kids her own age, she's usually a follower. I love that she's been sticking up for herself lately and coming into her own and letting her own personality and individuality shine through. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I am in love with how she expresses herself not only in her demeanour but also with how she plays with her toys including these adorable @lolsurprise dolls. I love that they encourage her to celebrate what makes her unique! Each doll is different and they are all beautiful in their own way, we want every kid to know, no matter their interests, style or personality – that they are included, you can sit with us at our table and play respectfully. I am all about the diversity, it makes me proud to teach her the same ethics. . 🟣How your child feel about LOL Surprise❓ #lolsurprise #ad #hbtlolsurprise #mommastimeoutcorner #nmtcollabs
