Today was a Star Wars socks & blueberry Red Bull kind of day. I could have used a couple more Red Bulls. 👐🏻

Throwing it back to January/February ish. My bed. I miss my bed. I miss all of my pillows...their comfort...the smell. I miss the smell of whatever was being cooked downstairs finding its way up to my room. I miss the bright morning light pouring through my window. I miss the space. I miss my home. I really, really miss my home. 😔 I'm in D.C. & I thought maybe I could come here & forget about things for a bit, but I can't. I know when I get on that plane to go back to Tennessee, I won't be going home. I will never go home again. Faith is a beautiful thing, though. I know where God takes, so much more will be given. ❤️ #home #spoonie #crohns #nocolonstillrollin #ostomate #gastroparesis #tubie #jtube #chronicillness #dysmotility

Yesterday, @littlelandond & I mailed out 17 pairs of socks! 🙌🏻 While we were there, a lady said to me, "I think I know you from instagram!" 🙈 "You probably do," I responded with a laugh. She lives in the same area as I do, but I don't think we know any of the same people. She just happened to see us on the search page. She used to be an RN, so I assume my story fascinated her. You know what's even cooler?! She said she saw us 3-4 weeks ago at Which Wich, but we were walking out as she realized who we were. Her name was Becky & she was so incredibly nice! ❤️

"That'll happen when sharks fly." Well, in case you missed Sharknado, here's my shark socks & they're about to take to the sky! ✈️ @sockittomeinc Love Bites! & they're men's which is why the heel is sticking out of the back of my shoes. 🙈😂 #sitmselfie

🎶Well I've been saved by the grace of southern charm. I got a mouth like a sailor and yours is more like a Hallmark card. If you wanna pick a fight, well I'm gonna have to say goodnight. I don't have to be hateful; I can just say "bless your heart"...and even though I don't belong with your high life friends, doesn't mean we don't get together and try to make amends. It's easier, can't you see, let's agree to just disagree. We don't have to like each other, but it's sure fun to pretend. So, let's shake hands and reach across those party lines. You got your friends just like I got mine. We might think a little differently, but we got a lot in common. You will see.. We're just like you, only prettier.🎶💁🏻 -Miranda Lambert, Prettier

This is as far as I'm willing to go with this unicorn trend. 🦄😑

I make bad chemistry jokes periodically. 👩🏻‍🔬 I had my ivig today because I'm leaving to go out of town on Wednesday. I somehow managed to lose 3lbs from last Thursday to today. That's rather discouraging as this is my first loss in a while. I've been steadily gaining. Eh. I'm saying it's a fluke. Hope? Yeah, I got that. 🙌🏻 & a shoutout to @sockittomeinc for keeping my feet in proper style. ❤️

We will never be able to take a normal picture...& I am totally ok with that. This is us. Eyes closed. Silly faces. Smiling until it hurts to get the "good one" & finally saying, "Screw it. One will have to do." ❤️

On this day in 1937, Bennie Ruth Bledsoe was born. Ten years ago, we threw her a big soirée. Today, we are doing the same. My grandmother has had a full 80 years & we're so blessed God chose her to be the matriarch of our family. Happy 80th, grandmother! ❤️

When the dog is jealous that it's Caturday Saturday. 😸 Socks by @sockittomeinc

Today's socks came from Izzy in the U.K.! I feel bad because I don't know your insta name! Tell me who you are! 🙈😂 I love these, though! I picked them up at the post office earlier this week. I feel like @littlelandond will steal these from me. 🙄❤️ I found her! @izzywizzy99 😂😂👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

AwesomeAshley (@vongraves)

Whoa buddy. Freckles in full swing today. 🙈 Guess what? I just mailed 18 pairs of socks to some people! They're all in the US today because I didn't have time to fill out customs paperwork. I'm so excited to get these out! I don't care how cheesy this sounds, but I LOVE when I can put a smile on someone's face. No better feeling! 🙌🏻❤️ #MayTheSocksBeWithYou

Today, I asked for an IV. *gasp* The clinic was running a little behind & I wanted to expedite things. While my ivig ran through my port line, I had an IV in my ac running fluids. Patience isn't my spiritual gift. 😊

Happy resurrection day! ❤️ Do you think Christ's white garments gleam as bright as my entire body in this picture?! I'd say I'm washed in the blood because I'm white as snow! 😂 😇 #ReasonsIDontWearWhite

All decked out for the season 10 premiere of Doctor Who tonight, but plans change. I am actually quite heartbroken over missing the premiere because Landon & I have been counting it down. We were really looking forward to watching Class, too. However, it's bunny night & there are little ones in this house. We've got both shows recorded & will get to them soon...I certainly hope. .... Enormous thanks & copious amounts of love to @weelijinx for always keeping me in her thoughts. These socks were a birthday gift from her last year & this is the first time I've put them on! I've been saving them for today! Thank you, Annemarie. ❤️
