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…

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:

"I strongly believe if you work hard whatever you want, it will come to you. I know that's easier said than done, but keep trying"-Beyonce

I think it's safe to say at this point we all know who Beyonce is and that she does in fact rule the world. Need further prove from anything else you may know as evidence of this? Allow me to share an observation...

Whilst walking for some fresh air and cardio Sunday morning, I found myself jamming to the Beyonce station on Pandora, a first in a long time I will add. Now, with other stations powered by a specific artist, one will find other artists taking up residence on that channel as well. Not in this example. While I admit I did skip a few of Bey's songs, sorry girl, only once did an Alicia Keys song play and once it was Destiny's Child (It was Bugaboo for the record and yes, it was as fabulous as I remember. I also need to remember to dig out my pager from storage). Anyhow, all other songs, whether prompted by skipping or what came next, was Beyonce every.single.time. There we have it; further proof Beyonce is queen of all the lands.

Let me be clear, I am tota…
