5 Things I love about 4th of July

With the 4th at the end of this week, I thought I'd draft my personal top 5 favorites about the ol'red, white & blue celebration. Shall we?

1. I'm going to get right to specifics here and say freedom. While I do feel there are many freedoms still needing some follow through, this country is a great, great land. I'm thankful, proud, and happy to represent this land.

2. Hot dogs, lemonade and festive desserts! These are staples in our house for the holiday. Throw in a bur-gah, oy! Delighted is an understatement.

3. A break from the day to day; I have a few days off and I am more than thrilled to spend time with the dogters, sleep in, get outdoors for walks and maybe some tennis (total fave sport to play), and really just pretend I work from home and get all kinds of fun things done.

4. The fashion. I adore it whether its:
-how people dress their kids/animals in their most festive attire
-various magazine layouts
-or seeing different street styles.
The 4th of July is literally the peak of summer so throw on the most summery sundress you got with a side of floppy hat and enjoy yaself some SPF while ya at it!

5. BBQ, bodies of water, sunshine, watermelon, and movies. Mad dash here at the ned to list it all, huh ? But really, I love to watch movies that represent some aspect of the American Dream. This includes but is not limited to: American Pies 1 & 2, The Goonies, Tommy Boy, Grease, I Know What You Did Last Summer (What? This totally encompasses American summertime. Well, kinda. Alright, alright, ya got me! Its just Freddie Prinze Jr y'all:)), and last but certainly not least, my spirit animal movie::::::::::Dirty Dancing!

Again, this is just some of the happiness I find this time of year. So excited!

How are you planning to celebrate the 4th? What are your favorite parts?


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 w

What makes me happy...Blogtober Day 19

What a timely topic to write about, seeing as its Sunday, and I LOVE Sundays! They make me very happy. Lots of things make me happy though. I am so thankful to say that! So in no particular order, allow me to kick back this beautiful Sunday and let some pictures tell you more about what makes me happy: The pawple who are always waiting and happy when you get home: Well, sometimes... This cat: Amazing company to go through life with: Food Trucks: #TBT: Laughing like this: Seeing the world through the eyes of the littlest people: Fashion: Kate Spade in particular: Family, with a highlighted focus on our generation: I feel very fortunate for what and who makes me happy. Tell me, what makes you happiest in all the land? Until we meet again, M

"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 t
