Keep smiling because life is a beautiful thing and there's so much to smile about -Marilyn Monroe

Fridayyyyyy, Friday. You ol' devil you. Thank all the happiness in the land for ya!

Let's KISS and go with a recap for some Friday Favorites of the week:

My man: Hunter is without a doubt one of the greatest people I could ever be blessed to have in my life and here's just a few reasons why(don't want it to go to his big beautiful head too much): he's comfortable to call my mom like he would his own and talk freely to her; he considers each of my friends a friend of his and laughs with them genuinely; he encourages my ambitions and offers insight when I ask and when I don't. He's not afraid to push me and that's okay because it's with intention, never malice and always supportive. Ugh, such mush, right? We'll leave it at that for now, like I said, no need to inflate too much.

Achievement and milestones: We are venturing into the land of home buying and considering the options. It feels good to know where we stand and reflect on all the hard work we've put into our life together to get there.

Apples: I cannot get enough granny smiths all the time but especially this week. They make me so so happy.

5k's: One of my gf's and I have committed to 2 of these treks per week and are off to the races, pun intended. I also signed up for a company 5k next month. What can I say? I'm a sucker for steady pace and race t-shirts.

4Rivers BBQ y'all: Our work catered for us today and let me just say mmmm mmmm mmmm good. Hold on, I'm also favoring wet naps for my greasy little paws this Friday.

My last favorite for this week is the sunshine. FL has been shining bright with a windy breeze and is truly in its finest form of the year. Blue skies, please follow me.


That concludes this week of blogging with muah. Please tip your waitress, put your shoes back on, and grab a virtual cupcake from me to you on the way out. Happy weekend!

Til we meet again,
M

  1. Apples. Seriously, I eat at least one a day. Who says that saying isn't true. Do you ever eat the Honey Crisp apples? Next best thing to the Granny Smith. That and a little bit of peanut butter. Is that what heaven is like? :)

  2. You know, I haven't tried the honey crisp, but I sure will add to my grocery list today! Apples are by far one of the best fruits EVER EVER.

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:

"I strongly believe if you work hard whatever you want, it will come to you. I know that's easier said than done, but keep trying"-Beyonce

I think it's safe to say at this point we all know who Beyonce is and that she does in fact rule the world. Need further prove from anything else you may know as evidence of this? Allow me to share an observation...

Whilst walking for some fresh air and cardio Sunday morning, I found myself jamming to the Beyonce station on Pandora, a first in a long time I will add. Now, with other stations powered by a specific artist, one will find other artists taking up residence on that channel as well. Not in this example. While I admit I did skip a few of Bey's songs, sorry girl, only once did an Alicia Keys song play and once it was Destiny's Child (It was Bugaboo for the record and yes, it was as fabulous as I remember. I also need to remember to dig out my pager from storage). Anyhow, all other songs, whether prompted by skipping or what came next, was Beyonce every.single.time. There we have it; further proof Beyonce is queen of all the lands.

Let me be clear, I am tota…
