Whassa happenin 'round here

Doll is using his birthday gift daily. He even made me one and I most definitely not a smoothie enthusiast. Turns out, I am now.







In other airhead news, as I prepared to make my baked macaroni ala pepperoni and spinach, dum dum over here began to whip together sauce in the preferred/only pasta cooking pot she has presently. Um, it would totally help to cook your elbows first so you have said macaroni for said baked deliciousness. My sauce started to come out especially good just as I noticed too. I wasn't about to toss out fabulously churned and blended cheese. When life hands you unboiled pasta, improvise:




I met up with an old friend over le weekend. It was absolutely wonderful. We talked, we caught up, and we laughed. It was everything an old friend meetup should be. Oh and we ate delicious deli food. Superb. It was nice to remember times, moments, people, ourselves. It's easy to forget who you were at that time. Not in a bad way, but in the way of you grow up, you change, you develop a life of your own. In 8-10 years, I have absolutely evolved. I also have so much more evolution to experience. It is so good to reflect.

My friend and I were very close in high school and we had so much fun together during this chapter of our lives. We had a big group of people and we were all friends, and friends of friends. My class, one of the early 2000's, was a fun class. We were good, trouble loving, good at heart kids. I feel like high school friends are in a league of their own. You learn so many things in high school and mostly its from your friends. The one thing I learned from my closest HS pals so, so many times was to laugh. Laugh at life, at each other, at stupid moments, fights, disagreements, everything. I laugh all the time still. That's a good thing to be able to say. The inhabitants of the world can use more laughter. If you're in need of any, start with a hind sight perspective and get the giggles. Enjoy!

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.
