BFF- Bridal Fab Fun

I am: maid of honor-ed.

One of my longest and best friendships has been with my gal Andrea. She got married this past May and in fact, almost to the day, Andrea has been a Mrs for 2 months. She is truly a friend that has proven she is just that, a friend; she has made me laugh to the point of gasping for air endlessly and not to be snubbed past, she is an awesome point of contact regarding health. And I don't have to pay her a co-pay! Yet. This person is undeniably special to me and when she asked me to be her maid of honor it really made the title mean that much more: It was entirely an honor.

Naturally after Andrea asked me, my party instinct kicked in gear and I was preparing months in advance to host the bridal shower. I thought hard about all the details my best friend would want. I knew flowers, hearts, cupcakes, deviled eggs and macaroni & cheese would be key. The rest, the scouring through selves in craft stores, collecting wine bottles, asking other girls in the ribbon aisle if they would prefer a savory ivory or off white lace better and explaining, "It's for my best friends bridal shower" and smiling wide as they nodded and smiled back, were just the extra details.
I must say the party was a hit and everyone truly enjoyed themselves. Some of her aunts and her grandma, who just so happens to be one of my favorite ladies in the world, called to thank me, my mom and Hunter's mom for hosting the day. Who does that anymore? An actual call to thank someone sadly is old world etiquette these days so I feel appreciative for that.

The love for Andrea was clear and it's such an amazing feeling to provide an event for someone you really care for and have everyone who feels the same way for that person as you do. It's a pretty big deal to stand next to someone as they say I do and also the entire way leading up to that moment. It is a beautiful, enchanting, and riveting time in their life. An honor indeed.

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…

Roni ate a crayon

The middle part. Perhaps like real food, is this the juiciest part? I don’t know why or what got into her but she not usually isn’t a newer or eater of non edible items. My girl is sophisticated; enjoys edamame with a little sea salt, broiled chicken, and sweet potato dog cookies, she’s not some gremlin with an anything goes pallet.

The number one thing that has changed with Roni since Pepper went to sleep would be her appetite. She eats, yes, but she’s veryyyyy particular. She won’t eat just to eat anymore. Like dogs do, she was always quick to scarf down food or treats because she worried Pepper would beat her to it. She be little but she is fierce when it comes to her grub.

                            Roni, girl!  You don't need to eat crayons! I'll meal prep for you, too!

Anyhow, we don’t love her new decision making abilities and would love it if she did not do such a mongrel thing to do. My little angel baby, love colorfully in a better way.
