Tact is the ability to tell someone to go to hell in such a way that they look forward to the trip." ~Winston Churchill

I'd like to dedicate the title of this post to you, Monday. Although, I happen to be off work today and have already caught laundry up, exercised for an hour and a half, had lunch with a friend, and now I am posting here. I'll take a win for $500, Alex.

The weekend was fabulous. Among workouts and being outside with the dogters a whole bunch, we also started the Netflix series House of Cards and let me just say, wowwwww. We love it and ran through the first seven episodes of season 1 in one sitting. Kevin Spacey was phenomenal before this and now he is quite possibly my favorite actor ever. Cannot wait to resume it tonight.

We also visited with our Roberts family. Connor, aka Nonner, is more adorable every time I see him. He now gives his own high fives without prompting and also "bumps it" on your fist with his. To.die.for.people. And man does he love uncle Unner:



My Tori, I adore this darling girl:


Hmm, what else, what else. Ah yes, hair! Got my martian man transformation on and wa-laa. I love my stylist Marie. She is by far one of the greatest in the world:




Magnolia Bakery was one place we visited repeatedly on vacay in NYC a few summers ago. I follow them on Twitter and they posted this over the weekend. Just perfection:

That was my weekend and I hope yours was awesome and filled with cupcakes, health, and happiness too.


Til we meet again,

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.
