Hiatus

I took a breaky for a bit from ohgabetta. I was getting a little over zealous for a minute and truth be told I burnt out. I admit, school, work and day to day events have me going at warp speed these days. I let this little space o' mine fall behind me. I know it's life and it happens and it's not the end of the world but to me it is. I really want to stick with blogging as a steady thing. I need this. I am doing what I want to do, which is living my life and being able to capture so many happy thoughts an ideas to place down on virtual paper. I like talking in this space and adding pictures the way I see them. Talk about serenity freaking now.

I needed to breathe and reboot (wise words from the fab CB from SATC, BTW) and honestly the few days I've had off from work extra were much needed. Yes. They. Ar--I mean Were. As in, time to go back to reality and alarm clocks. Es la vida, no?


It helps that I got my paws on some new (on sale-yesss) stationary. Lots of happy desk spaces for me! I think this cures this bout of writer's curse(block). Having trouble virtually? Kick it old school with some dainty little sheets, some new mechanical glitter pencils(um, duh), and bam! You get it together and address your blog abandonment issue. Done.

Evidencione:




School ideas, errands, house projects, random thoughts of inspiration, grocery items---literally my brain in a five minute window. That reminds me; poor Hunter.


Okay, so I see in the bloggy world alot of awesome recaps from the weekend and a lot of reflection on the first day back after everyone's awesome holiday. Honestly, the world is wonderful right now. It was a beautiful few days to spend celebrating those who have fought, are fighting, and to those who aim join the Armed Forces. Thank you to anyone who come across this article for your courage and sacrifice in so many ways.

It sure is nice to have time to do what ya wanna do, take in some natural vitamin D, and quite honestly do whatever else blows your dress up. Travel, be lackadaisical, party, don't party, clean your house, trash someone else's pool, whatever the kids are doing these days. Hunty and I chose a little bit of homebody-ism with a side of visits to the pool multiple days:




Le view from under my floppy hat


Good healthy brain food and some lounging with red box in between pool vizzies:





(notsomuchpuppies)puppybabies time, talk about lounging this weekend...





These two? Ugh, of course they did.


I'm very rejuvenated for the short work week to commence and I'm especially thankful I had one extra day. I spent the entire day focusing on my final publication that ends my first semester of grad school. That doesn't mean much of anything actually. I start a new class Monday. That's the joy and the pain of a 1-year program indeed. It is 20% of my grade and I am earning every bit of that 20, let me just say. Excited, nervous, eager, antsy-you name it and I am feeling it on this one. Ready to bring to life my planning and create this story.


EEK,

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:
