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…

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:
