I am: fortunate.


"I live for the weekends." We've all known people who have said this. At one time I resented when it was said. Mostly, because the thought constricting to just a couple days of a week being reserved for non commitment, lounging, living adventurously, running wild, laying low was sickening. Real world enter, stage right. It's crazy to think you adapt to that way of living but you do. I am a dreader of Monday and a Friday worshiper indeed. I live for the moments:

I can make breakfast and lunches that I put time and energy into:





I can head out for an all American moment:

I can peruse my favorite home good stores for possible his & her chairs that will fit fabulously now and later into our custom designed lounge area that connects our his & her closets the size of small cabana houses:


Or scout out new bedding ideas for our intended room makeover with a color scheme of peach, black and ivory:

I work really hard at work, so does Hunter. We give our everything to our work days and perhaps this is why we enjoy our weekends to do the simplest but fun activities we wait all week to do. I would still love to reevaluate the structuring of a traditional work week setup, like maybe add in one more day off, possibly Mondays, and make some kind of 4-3 system moving forward. Hmm, isn't there an election coming up? Wonder if it's too late to add in a new category. Until then, we can squeeze in for our two days as best as we can. And living for the weekends? Not as bad as I thought it would be. Not bad at all.

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 …
