Bears Know Best

Hmphhhhhh....My glorious 3 day weekend is coming to a close. Booooo. So much was able to be accomplished: event for BRINK, writing for BRINK, sheets; curtains, rugs washed; did grocery shopping for fresh deliciousness; got 3 presents away from completing Christmas shopping anddd everything is wrapped(I am my mother circa 1990); went for a run with the weird in my hair; caught up on Dexter--2 episodes, I know-Worst.Fan.Ever. award right here---I even had time to fit in an allergy attack but it didn't upset me too much because when it happened I still had two whole days left to enjoy.

While at the store I snagged two bones for the girls. Pepper of course obliged and spoke on command, shook my hand as asked, and sat patiently while I kept Roni from spinning 27 times in anticipation. Pep ran off with a gleam in her eye to devour hers while Roni, not able to lift her bone(I NEED to create a bag of dog bones for those housing fur creatures of different size-note to self-1 item added to to-do list---seriously, people, someone--wait for it--throw me a bone here :) I crack myself up), scooted across the kitchen floor nudging it along with her to the mat so she could lay her belly on that while she nuzzled it down. Just when I start to wonder about her, she uses her brain instead of her adorably good looks to figure things out. That's my angel.

My lovable Bear is skipping around thrilled with his football day. "Tebowwwww--classic Tebowwwww" is the giddy saying around here today. I'm happy for him when he has a good fantasy football day too. Actually, I'm happy when he takes down the signs he makes that read "Football Sunday. No girls allowed" from the bedroom door. It's not like I pay them any mind. This is the kind of day where it's good to leave flyers around with Nine West sales and seem to be everywhere Hunter is, asking questions about the players or dishing on gossip about their personal lives I read about: "Did you know that so-and-so from the Cowboys totally had an affair with his nanny?" Sooner than later he's saying, "You know, I haven't picked up anything for you lately. Why don't you go pick something out, on me?" I just love that Bear.

Another week shall begin at the stroke of 6:45am. Time now to situate my work belongings, outline my to-do's, writing assignments etc and whatever else needing addressing. It's oddly relaxing, gratifying. Only two weeks til work's Christmas party, 3 til Christmas, and a bit under a month for a whole new year to begin. Lots coming up, lots going on. I should remember to rest up like this little meatloaf right here:


Til we meet again....

Self care reset

We all hear the buzzwords self care more than ever these days. Every where you turn, a lifestyle blogger, health guru, or magazine article shares insight on ways to treat yo self to some basic T.

While I love modern discussions as much as the next girl, I’m aware sometimes it just doesn’t fit and you have to reset what isn’t working. For example, some weeks I am just done by the tine Friday hits. Hell, a rough Wednesday or Thursday has crept in there, too, requiring a pause and reflection for how best to naturally beat a funk or a “feeling of less than stellar”.

Here my top self care reset ideas for your consideration:

Drink water: Warm it with some lemon, try some green tea for an antioxidant boost, or just plain old room temperature is a sure way to get the boost to feeling a bit better.

Face it: Fewer things feel as good as a really great face mask. I love charcoal in particular lately and always feel refreshed and restored and ready to ‘face’ another day. See what I did t…

Change Has Arrived

New adventures lie ahead.  I've left my full time job in college admissions and am now full time into mine and Hunter's business.  I'm working on a few other ventures so when I know more I'll follow up on that.

I spent 6 years working at my last job and while I always knew I would go to my business full time eventually, it hasn't truly hit me that I'm not just taking some vacation time and spending a few days away.  I'm ready for my new normal though.

It's times like this I love having a lifestyle blog.  I'll look back on this post at some point and the thoughts had, the feelings felt will all come back.  This is a big milestone, leaving a corporate type job and going full speed as a small business owner.  Yay!!

I've got big plans for the next.  Excited for what's to come.



Let's meet again,

Blogtober Day 26, Who would play you in a movie...

Ohhh good one, Blogtober.

Someone once told me I reminded them of Drew Barrymore. They didn't say if it was for look or personality, so I'm not sure where they drew the conclusion from. See what I did there?

I threw this out to one of my very best and oldest friends Andrea. Talking it out, we agreed that Drew and I do share some similar qualities, both in personality and in dressing and accessorizing. Andrea reasoned that Drew is quirky and a little less traditional, much like me. I reasoned we have the same headbands:

I also recalled that when I was a little girl, everyone thought I looked like a young Drew Barrymore. Both my parents have said people would come up to them all the time and remark on my resemblance to her in that movie Firestarter:

Whatever it is, I would absolutely be pleased if Drew played me in a movie.

Now, if Penelope Garcia was a real person and not a character on a TV show (Criminal Minds), she would undoubtedly play me in a movie:



Until …
