My weekend, my friend and a whole lotta pictures

What a successful weekend. I worked most of the day Saturday and managed to get so many other things accomplished still. Specifically, tons of school things were completed, initiated, and planned for. Enjoyed some grocery shopping and made yummy meals while knocking out some house chores too. Busy with purpose is the only way to get over being busy, ya know?


This is a part of my thesis I am very excited to continue investigating. To learn more, please head over to my other site megkhyde.com.


Sat. night my amazing friend Lizetty and her fiance had a housewarming/Halloween party that was positively magnificent. They put on a good show that's for sure! The food, the bevvies, the company, it was a smash hit.



Some dolled up tangerines, hey girls!


Lizetty made these entirely from scratch, dolled them up something fierce, and assembled the adorable stand like a pro.


This year, I was inspired by the lifestyle of fabulous and came to showcase this in the form of a scarecrow. I had all the ingredients for said costume minus a silver wig and tinsel and some new boots, which I need for the rest of fall and the coming winter.








Love these. Hey Target, you spoke to my soul yet again. Well played.





Hunter had some work done for the event. What a ghoulishly good looker he is. By the way, his eyes are closed in these pics. The artist did phenomenal work.





So cool and totally creepy.




For a smidgen of some downtime, I had brunch with a good friend that included...wait for it...Raspberry Mimosas! And honest to god mini french, home fries. Adorable and it was good, good, good.




We strolled along Park Ave after and AS IF a fab fritatta and super fun company wasn't enough to make it a great time, there was a Pet Costume Contest happening with dogs of all shapes and sizes and all variations of mini cowboy hats, super hero masks, and coinciding devil/angel outfits! Somebody pinch me! We both were ready to become Pug foster parents after witnessing a dog kissing booth with a precious little doll named Ella that simply stole my heart. I was totally prepared to make my usual call to Hunty with a request to come help me with things to bring in the house from the car. Surpriseeeeee......


Happy to begin my third to last class of graduate school today. Wish me well. Let's do this.

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.
