What if God was one of us?

That title has nothing to do with this post but it's a great song.

I want to write today. What I want to write is up for debate. I have so many thoughts and ideas and want to just type it all up and wrap it in a bow and gift it to blogland. But then...I sit....and stare...and wonder where to start. It's hard to make sense of things sometimes and take thoughts and morph them into sentences that make sense outside of your cranium. In my head space, these ideas are running free and happy in fields of sunshine and cupcakes. On this blog spot page though, they are huddled in the corner hiding away unsure of when to come out.

So, I know other bloggers often express similar stump days and do what they can to get around it. I also know I read a fabulous article once that I found through a Twitter link and it said that when faced with "writer's block" you should just start writing. Write whatever and see what comes of it from there. Well, here's to you fabulous article I once found through Twitter:

1) I wonder what Pepperoni do all day. If new to this space, allow me to clarify: these are my beautiful dogters, Pepper and Roni. Furry and fabulous they are, and boy do they have Hunty and I wrapped around their tales. Witch, please. I wish I was kidding. These girls have run of the castle all day long and they surely don't hold back when I have a random day off with them to see how care free they truly are, so I can only imagine when we aren't there the life they lead. They most likely have some trick perfected that allows them access to treats and I'm sure if any two gals can master living in a human world with no thumbs, it's these two. I don't trust it at all but yet I give in and pet their bellies more times a day that I'd ever like to admit. Woof.

2) I rarely talk about technically being engaged on here, aside from this story, but we are coming up on a year of this relationship status change. No matter if we decide to live as we are, which is happy and all I care about, or if we decide to head up some stairs or down an aisle to make this union differently titled, I must say I got a goooodddd ring to sport all day long. She's a vintage collaboration, Boo Boo picked her out all his self, and she's fabulous:

Just look at her dahling!(In my best dramatic actress of choice's sighing, exaggerated, squeal)

3) I think I have a nail polish problem. Meaning, I've been on a kick for so long where I cannot, repeat, I cannot paint my nails as one round of the same color. It's troubling y'all! I want to go back to fab chic some days but then I decide to add a kick of a complimentary color to a digit or two. This is my life. I've hit bottom:

4) I want LC bangs. As in, I to want blunt chop my hair to resemble what Lauren Conrad has going on. Fab-u-lous and yes, please. They are amazeeee. Don't believe it? Check out her hair in this ad for her Kohl's line, via pinterest, via

Such a decision a gal will make a time or ten in her life. To retrain bangs or let them split and part awkward, that is my question. Hmmm. It will cure my urge to chop the hair that is half down my back now. I know I'll regret it once I do it but I' of sweating in FL. Hot, hot, ugh hot. Bangs may just be my salvation to mix it up long enough to make it to winter.

5) Anddd this crazy train is coming to a stop. Please locate all baggage, small children, and discard your water bottles. I leave you with this from Pinterest:

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.
