fa-ra-ra-raaaaa, ra-ra-ra-raaaaaa

What I did today:

-Figured out which pictures to print for family pic gifts

-Went through the checkout at Target Three.Times.In.Ten.Minutes. Yes, that's right.

-All together I purchased boo-ku frames, super fab too-sparkles y'all!; one roll of gorge black wrapping paper with simple stencil sketched, ivory flowers; a strand of ribbon stapled together, meant to go to one gift usually. I promptly had Hunter remove said staple with scissors so I could disassemble to make ribbon for many gifts, already curled. Oh, yes. Time/finger-saver, good friends. And I only had to make two stops for more photos to be printed out. Whoo, I'm exhausted all over again.

-Got home, forced Hunter awake from his nap to look at my finds, explained my wrapping ideas, woke Hunter up again from nodding off, grabbed my tape, scissors, and some extra trinkets I've had around the house this year. Items included these floral table embellishments from Andrea's bridal shower and a gold paint pen. I have used both of these investments numerously and quite enjoy every new idea better than the last. I love keeping these around for good moments like this.

I refused to run back into the depths of hell aka Target once more. I also figured I either had gift name tags from the last time I bought a pack 3 years ago- stuff lasts forever! If I didn't have those I'd sort it out. And that's what I did. I took the cardboard backs from the frames I bought and cut them down to about half size. Adds a simple elegance and crafty-chic appeal dontchathink?




I love this print!






Said pictures being gifted:




I had so much fun!


Feeling festive,

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.

Simple blessings

I’m lying in bed, next to a snoring husband and my baby girl dogter sprawled out cozy as can be, while the rain falls down upon our roof. Gone are the days of spending a Saturday night downtown at a club, throwing beers back in a honky think, or galavanting around to anywhere with the lights on.

And I’m not mad about it. Not even a little bit. There is tilt no place I’d rather be than with hunter, Roni and our comfy sweet little home happily netflixing and writing this here post. It’s a good feeling indeed.

I count my blessings extra on nights like this and say a few additional prayers for love and comfort to continue on. I truly don’t ask for more than health, happiness, and love. Anything else is gravy.

To simple blessings for all.
