Because when you stop and look around, this life is pretty amazing...

Sunday looked a little like this:

Kale, Spinach, Pepper Jack, Onion and Tomato


His and her:


For the win:


Hmm, what else. what else. We both threw on our designated Pandora stations and power cleaned. I'm pretty positive that a cure-all for an ughhh cleancleanclean mentality is the Otis Redding and friends station. How can you not stop and dance when Otis tells you to? That's, like, a sin.

Then, I sat down to do some blogging stuff while Sex and the City played in the background. Read also: SATC is ALWAYS good for the soul. Always.

We ended our day by having dinner with Hunter's parents, sister, and our youngest nephew. Hunter and Connor are what you would call kindred spirits...best friends...homies for life:



My personal fave is the middle one. I mean, is there anything funnier than seeing a little bear throw up his little fist when you say pound it? The correct answer would no. No, there is nothing better/funnier.

The last thing I'll mention is a shout to my gal MM. Marilyn Monroe will always hold a special place in my heart. Her beauty, brains, and want for goodness in the world have always inspired me. Today is her birthday and I do wish she was here to celebrate it and share some awesome stories about life. Since she is not, I share some of my faves of her previously gifted wisdom:

"If I'd observed all the rules, I'd never have got anywhere."
"I don't know who invented high heels, but all women owe him a lot."
"Women who seek to be equal with men lack ambition."
"Wanting to be someone else is a waste of the person you are."

Happy Birthday, my hero. May you throw on a mink and paint it up glamorous.


Til we meet again,
M

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 w

So because of this intense love, I have manyyyyy happy, favorite Halloween memories and the pictures to prove this: Oh, the days of downtown Whorelando on Halloween y'all: Remember approximately 2006-2008ish, when Bret Michaels was attempting " to find love " over, and over again ?

Then that night a fabulous scarecrow and her goblin guy... Throwing back the Halloween love full force. Hey girl!: I love this holiday!!!!!! As for one specific memory, I do recall going trick
