Kray

Oh, man. Chris Kelly died? From Kris Kross?? Seriously, I am a broken-hearted 10 year old right now; one who is back in time hopping and crossing my legs, while yelling at our TV "Krisss Krossss!" Super sad about this. What an impact these guys were able to make.

This got me thinking about TGIF. Remember on Friday nights? No idea? Here's a quick recap from MrRetroCommercials via youtube.com. Family Matters, Step By Step, Boy Meets World, Full House, Dinosaurs, and my personal favorites, Sabrina the Teenage Witch and Hangin with Mr. Cooper, all contributed in some way to who I am today. I share this proudly. We did pizza in our house. Amen! It sure was TGIF, amiright? Pizza Hut pan, cheese of course. It's funny too because some coworkers and I were just talking about this. A bunch of us shared the same sentiments. We appreciated this night so much.

It has me thinking now about the original ideas that went into TV. The world it was back then, was one of light-hearted, American Dreamery. I Love Lucy, Bewitched, Jeannie Girl (aka I Dream of Jeannie), The Brady Bunch, Gilligan's Island...so on and on. TGIF brought this same appeal and if it were on today, I would be on it like bangles on my arm. All. Over. It.

Chris Kelly, thank you. Rest in peace indeed.


*Saw this table out and about today. My cousin Nick had one when we were kids. We loved this desk! I had to send him the pic. I may look into an adult replication. The structuring is dynamite.



Jamming,

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.
