Do all things with love

Hello to all and to all hello,

Wowza, Thanksgiving break was grrreat. We did it all: travel, food, family, friends, laughs, drinks, gatherings, homework. That last part is an eh, so-so feeling. Bitter because neither Hunter nor I could escape homework entirely but sweet because he is finishing up another semester of school and I am finalizing my thesis! In fact, I am taking a much needed break right now and escaping to the blog(see: holy)land to regain what sanity I can conjure up. Oy, I need to lie down for a week after this one kids.

Anyhow, we ventured back to my hometown this year to partake in some thankfulness and turkey. I introduced Tori, Hunter's babiest sister, to my happy and loud family. Good news is she survived wonderfully and I think she may even come back for another get together. I think. It was all good, everyone was in funny spirits, which is my favorite part about my family. Boy they can be quite humorous. Inappropriate but still humorous. I would not change a thing in fact.

I ventured out to one of the local watering holes with some girlfriends since our quaint, little hometown is known to attract all kinds of folk, both past and current residents, during holidays. It was fun to gather with people you knew at different times in your growing up life. My no longer baby girl cousin Jordan (She's 22! I could throw up) joined us and it was a trip to hang with her. She is beyond funny and so full of life and enjoyment. I saw many old friends and it was like time never passed. It was a good time had by all for sure. For those who say you can't go home again, I say sure you can. Just go home and get out to have a drinky to wrap your head around it.

On with it I say. Show the people the pictures!!

This girl. My girl. My Izzle and I preparing to head on out.


My Jordan. Homie for life.


My heart sings for these two cats.


This fool. Nestled like a turkey wedged between the couch. Of course we helped her out! After taking a series of pictures of course. Hey, she was totally content before we noticed. Snug as a bug my friends. We should all be so lucky to just let go and get cozy from time to time, amiright?


Another look at this cutie pie honey bun.

Woof, tis the season.

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:

Irrational Rationing...

The past year of my life has been spent blogging; two of my four classes necessary for graduation required them and at my internship I blogged. Why not give the world my opinion on any subject I choose? It's free and it's mine to share, right? Absolutely!

So, to start, what do I want my tone to be? Tone is a very important factor, you know. It can make or break a piece. People want to identify a tone or purpose, which they often misconstrue as meaning the same thing. Oh, people-my favorite breed:)

So let's see. There's:
Informative? Will I provide people with knowledge about various subjects and try to teach? Eh.

How about super upbeat and positive? Like, I'll provide people with a reason to live to log on to read the next uplifting piece of blog. Eh.

How about super dreary? Dreary works. Most people would rather be perfectly miserable than divinely happy. Eh. Decisions.

Hmm, maybe all my posts will be so contemplative. Hey! That's not a bad racket. Contemplative in…
