Hey Y’all!

Welcome to My Hot Southern Mess! I am Debbie. I am happy to have you here!


About  My Hot Southern Mess

Life is crazy and full of all sorts of adventures. Sometimes good while other times things can only be explained as a hot mess or in my case a Hot Southern Mess! There is never a dull moment around these parts. 

My Hot Southern Mess is a look into my life and loves. From delicious food, my adventures in running, to just what is going on in my crazy life as a spouse of a soldier and mom of four awesome tweens and teens, you will find it here!

My Hot Southern Mess

About Debbie

I am a southern girl, wife, and mom of 4 tweens and teens.

I’m a gluten free foodie but my husband and kids are not. They just like good food.

I am a lover of healthy living and being outdoors. You can find me running, biking, lifting weights in my garage, hiking, fishing, camping, hanging out at the closest lake, beach, or mountains, and in the summer working in my garden.

I went full crazy and ran my first marathon in 2016 but half marathons are still my favorite distance.

I am a volunteer and advocate. I have volunteered and advocated heavily in the military community for 15+ years. I was even Fort Bliss’s Military Spouse of the Year in 2013. Currently I am the Community Outreach Director for Team Red White and Blue, Fort Bragg.

I am a Jack of all Trades. Okay so maybe not all trades but I try.

My Hot Southern Mess

I strongly believe that everything happens for a reason even though the reason doesn’t always present itself right away and it may annoy the crap out of me when it is happening. I also believe you need to be able to laugh at yourself. You can get through anything with a little humor and sarcasm and if that fails there are always cupcakes.
