About Missy

Missy- the voice behind Discovering US Bus

I’m Missy, a southern girl, a travel blogger, a daughter of the King. I believe everyone should live life on purpose. Life is too short to get stuck in a day-in and day-out routine. Whether it is planning our next place to camp or deciding on the next museum to visit, I tried to schedule time for spur-of-the-moment events. Can you tell that I am a bit of a controller? I like to have a plan for each day several days ahead of time.

Here are a few more things about me that you might find interesting.

Some of my hobbies include:

Photography – You can find some of my favorite photos here.


Developing my own recipes – One day I want to write a cookbook.

Spelunking – For those of you who might not know what this is, it is crawling around underground in a cave. This is not the commercial cave where there is lights and a nice walking path. Spelunking involves get muddy and wet while wearing a helmet and a headlight.


This is what I am talking about. Jackson Cave was a memory

that will stay with us forever.

Things I struggle with:

I am a controller. – I am trying to let go of things and not micro-manage but it is hard when so much in my life NEEDS controlling.

I am an excessive planner.  – I try to just enjoy the moment but with 7 children, moments left unplanned lead to dramaody. (Dramaody- is my word for drama that is funny.) You know those “it’s never dull in my house moments”.

My Quirky Side:

I tie my shoelaces to the side.

When eating a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup, I eat the edge first.

I do not let a child of ours, blow out their birthday candles on the entire cake. I cut their piece and put the candle on the individual slice. Seriously, have you thought about the germs that is all over that cake when a snotty nose child blows out his candles. I would be the one making a wish – NOT TO GET SICK.
