I know that it has been a while since I have updated...SORRY! Life with a little one is hectic.  We made an as always quick trip back to Arkansas last weekend.  It was due time for the grandparents to see Chloe.  It was a nice relaxing weekend full of family, good friends, and good food.  (I hate getting on the scales after going home.)

So I now that Christmas is far away, however, I already know exactly what I want and have not hesitated to let everyone know.  SO if I don't get it, then I will know for sure that no one is listening.  I have decided that I need a GOOD "big girl" camera.  I want a Canon EOS Rebel T2i and i am super pumped about it.  Chloe better just brace herself, I am gonna be "that mom" with the camera in her face at all times.  I cannot wait!  So to all who are concerned...I want money for Christmas to buy THIS camera.

My creative juices just don't get enough work these days, and they are itching to get out here in the last few weeks.  This surge is never a good thing.  So, I have decided that I need a project of some sort.  The problem is, there are too many things that I would really like to do.  Most of them take up alot of time, which I don't have, or they cost too much.  So here I am stuck with an itch for creativity, and no where to release it.  Poo!

Very inspired

Well yesterday I went and saw "Eat, Pray, Love."  Let me tell you, this movie made me want to stop my life and sell all I have and travel.  Julia Roberts did a great job (as always) of playing such an inspirational character. Elizabeth Gilbert is a very motivating and ambitious character that put the "real" meaning of life into perspective.  This movie showed me that there is a wide world out there that most of us here in this small part no nothing about!   I really enjoyed this movie and cannot wait to read the book.

SAY WHAT??  Triskaidekaphobia is the fear of Friday the 13th.  No, I do not suffer from this phobia, however it was quite a day for me. 

First off...I went to the doctor because I have completely lost my sense of smell!  I have noticed it in the last few weeks and really became concerned about it.  Of course googling it did not make matters any better!  It said I could have any of the following...
Skitsofrenia, severe head injury, brain tumor, or nasal polyps!  I mean...I guess it is never a good idea to google will always give you the worst case senario and bring out the hypochondriac in anyone.  Eveyone I work with decided it was definantly Skisofrenia!  SO like any concerned person, I called my Doctor. 
"Mrs. Massey what seems to be the problem?"
"I think I lost my sense of smell"  (pause on the other line)
"Okay, we can get you in at 2!"
How embarassing.  My docotor had a good little chuckle when I told her, but assured me that she did not think that there was anyway that I have a brain tumor nor was I Skitsofrenic. (though many would disagree.)  All it was was severe inflammation and nothing a round of steroids wouldn't cure.  GREAT!  Steroids, one more thing that is gonna make me fatter.  OH well...hopefully now I can smell again.

Also,  last night was the first of many to come. ..Chloe threw a huge fit while we were out to dinner.  I was so embarassed.  We had to get our food to go!  I didn't know, nor do I still know what happened?  It was like someone snuck up and pinched her, and WHAM....Chloe freaked out.  She never does this.  I mean it was one of those back arching, breath holding, break a swet kind of fits.  We were kind enough to go outside and ask for our food to go and let the rest of the restaurant eat in peace. 

The best part of my day however was receiving this great picture of my precious little peanut!

Photo by Debby Flores!  SHE is awsome.  Check her out at

All in all my Friday the 13th did not bring about any phobic feelings,  ghost, or freakish hauntings, just an average day in our circus of a life!

Dr. Tucker

As I said before, one of my best friends, Kevan Beth, is beginning Medical School tomorrow at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences.  She had her White Coat Ceremony this past week and signed her life over to the medical profession. 
Patiently waiting

Signing the Oath

Getting her White Coat!

What a hot little Doctor she is gonna be!

I just wanted Kevan Beth to know that I am so super proud of her and am going to be thinking of her tomorrow!  Best of luck. 

Another win!

I just wanted to congratulate my husband!!! The race team that he works for (Earnhardt Ganassi Racing) won another race this year, this makes 3!  I am so proud of him and all of his accomplishments.  Way to go Juan Pablo Montoya!

Friends are like glue....they stick with you no matter what.

I truely believe that I am one of the luckest peope alive because I have one of the greatest group of friends in the whole world.  They are the kind of friends that I can go without talking to for weeks, yet always manage to pick right up where we left off.  The 6 of us have been together for so long and been through alot together.  They truely are some of the most wonderful people in my life and I thank God for them everyday.  So here they are.

Allison King
Allison and I have been best friends since we were in diapers.  We used to live up the street from one another.  Our brothers became friends, so inevitably, so did we.  We have gone on many trips together all around the world.   We are so diffrent, yet so alike.  True believers that opposites attract!  Allison currently lives in Washington D.C. and is living it up! 

Kevan Beth Tucker
Kevan Beth and I have been friends since we were in diapers.  She also used to live in my neighborhood along with allison.  Kevan Beth and I have done many things together throughout our lives including church, gymnastics, cheerleading, and getting into some trouble!!  Kevan Beth, aka Ralphie, is always there for me and always lends an ear to listen.  She is currently living in Little Rock, Arkansas and is beginning Medical School tomorrow.  I am so proud of her!

Elizabeth Arnold
Elizabeth is also another diaper buddy.  Our families have been friends for a long time and so have we.  "Liz" is a very down to earth person and I admire her for it.  She always has kind words and always has my back no matter what.  Elizabeth is currently working for the Arkansas Lottery and lives in a cool little loft apartment in downtown Little Rock, Arkansas.  (maybe someday she will be writing me a check after I hit big!)

Mary Wood
Mary is a great friend.  She and I are alot alike and on occasion get mistaken for sisters.  Mary and I have done theater together since we were very little.  Mary has always been there for me and always makes me laugh with her stories.  She just graduated from Nuclear Medicine School and is on the prowl for a job.

Drew Ladd
Drew is such a great guy.  He is just "one of the girls."  Drew and I became friends during Community Theater when we were in junior high.  Drew is a great person and makes me laugh all of the time.  He always tells it like it is and I love him for it.  Drew is currently in school at Rosevelt in Chicago.  I am so proud of his accomplishments and hope his AMAZING voice takes him far. 

Well there you have it.  There are my best friend.  I have met so many other great people along my walk in life that I will never forget also, but these guys have been there with me through it all.  I miss many of my friends from college, my sorrority sisters, and all those people that walk in and out of your life.  I will neve forget them and think of them often.  Friends are such a great and important part of my life and I thank God everyday that I get to spend with those I currently have and for allowing me to meet new friends along the way.

My family

My family is a huge part of my life and always has been.  It is very hard to be almost 800 miles away from them all.  My Mom and Dad are amazing parents who have taught me that life is hard, but it is worth it and try to have fun along the way.   I also have two brothers who are wonderful and have beautiful families themselves.  I also have a great new family (Josh's family), who has taken me in as their own! So, let me introduce them to you.

My Mom and Dad
Here is my Mom, Deann.  My Mom is a wonderful woman.  She is a hard worker, has raised 3 wonderful children, and built a great home.  She has a green thumb and is a phenomenal cook.  My Mom keeps me grounded.  I love and miss her so much, I just wish we lived closer.

My Dad

This is my Dad, Donald.  He is a hard working farmer, a provider, and an all around great man.  He has taught me the values of life.  He is just a big teddy bear, and I will always be Daddy's little girl. 

My oldest brother Win
Win has a great family.  His wife Jennifer is just like a sister to me and I could not ask for more!  They have two beautiful kiddos....Cooper who is 2 and baby Caitlin who is 4 days old!

Jennifer and Cooper

Cooper and Baby Caitlin

Next is my brother Will.
Will is an all around great guy. He also has a great little family.  His wife Lane is also just like a sister to me, and a great creative person.  They have a precious little boy, Caden.  He is 4 1/2 and is the sweetest little boy I know. 
Will, Lane and Caden. 

Like I said before...I now have a new family as well.  The Massey's.  Josh's family has been so great to me and I could not ask for better in-laws.  I really appreciate all they do.  Now let's introdue them...

Josh's Mom, Jinger

Josh's Dad, Joel

and Josh's Sister Heather...aka Aunt Heather

I am truely blessed with a wonderful family.  I love them all.  Without them I would be lost.  I miss them all each and everyday. 

You don't choose your family. They are God's gift to you, as you are to them. ~Desmond Tutu

The Massey's

"It may be a crazy life, but it is our life."  This describes us perfectly.  Josh, Chloe, Gus,  and I are a perfect little match, and we've learned to take what life brings you and hope for the best! 

First here is my husband, Josh.

Josh and I have almost been married a year, and been through ups and downs that have tested our relationship...but apparently we held on because we made it through them...together.  Josh is a great guy.  I know sometimes I don't give him alot of credit, but he really is a good husband and awsome father.  Josh and I met about 5 years ago in our hometown.  I moved to Fayetteville, AR to go to the UofA and Josh moved to NC to begin school at Nascar Technical School.  We were long distance for 2 years, then I moved to NC to attend the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill for Dental Hygiene School.  SO then we were 2 hours away....and we still stayed together through all of those miles.  Josh and I got engaged Christmas of 08, and had a beautiful wedding in October of 2009.  We brought into the world a precious little girl in January and have been loving, living, and learning everyday since then!  Josh lives his dream job everyday working for Earnhardt Ganassi Racing building chassis for Jamie McMurray and Juan Pablo Montoya.  His team has had a great year, winning the Daytona 500 and the Brickyard 400!  I am so proud of his accomplishments.   Josh has stuck by my side through thick and thin, and though we may not always agree.....we learn to keep our heads up and get through the hard times.

Next is Chloe Greer...aka Peanut. 

Chloe is just an awsome baby.  She makes me smile everytime I look at her.  I cannot believe that she is already 6 months old.   She makes me appreciate all the little things in life.  Chloe smiles most of the time and has just discovered the world from an upwards point of view since she just learned to sit up!  Chloe has brought so much joy and laughter into my life and I cannot wait to see what the next 70 years bring. 

And you cannot forget our fur baby, Gus

Gus is a 3 year old Jack Russell Terrier.   He is a great dog and has been with us since he was 6 weeks old.  He is a cuddly bug and love to play ball.  I love him so much but wish he did not shead so much!

Last but not least,  Me.

I am a small town girl at heart.  I try to live life to its fullest potential. I am blessed to have a great family who has supported me in everything that I have done.  I am a Dental Hygienist and love helping others.  I have a awsome group of friends and cannot imagine my life without them.  I enjoy so many things it is hard to say one thing that I love.  I cannot wait to see what life has in store for me and my family!


Last night I had a strange urge to begin a blog in order to put my life and thoughts into here I am.  So first off Hello.  My name is Whitney Massey.  I am originally from Batesville, Arkansas and now live in Mooresville, NC with my husband Josh and my precious little girl Chloe Greer.   Josh and I have been together for 5 years.  Josh is a chassis fabricator for Earnhardt Ganassi Racing and is the reason we are here in North Carolina.  I am a Dental Hygienist for an awsome doctor and love my job.  Josh and I were married on October 17, 2009.  We welcomed our bundle of joy January  30, 2010 (yes I know the math of 9 months does not add up.)  We have had an extremely crazy crazy last 18 months and have proved that our relationship can go through it all.  We like to say that we are on the "fast track of life."  So here is a breif rundown of the last 18 months for us......

First.....we got engaged December 24, 2008

Then we bought our first house...

Next I took 2 board exams (passed them both!) and graduated college..

After that...I got a job!

Then we had a BEAUTIFUL wedding that was everything I could have hoped for and more...

And we just could not stop there....In January we welcomed Chloe Greer Massey into the world.

WHEWWW... that exhuast me just thinking about it.    We survived it all and would not change one thing.  Life is good and we live it day by day, moment by moment, and second by second, trying hard not to blink.   I am ready to see where this blog takes me and cannot wait to begin another thing that takes up time that I don't have!
