Ode to the dogs...again

One of the most fascinating things to me in all of life, is the impact animals can have on us. Specifically dogs. Now, if you have been to this little nestle in the virtual world before, you have been privy to the love and doting the Munterhegans do on their dogters.

These little fur babes really don't care if you have the best or worst day; all they do is care and love on you.

Take my Roni. She never lets you eat alone, particularly edamame or green apples. Or go to the restroom alone. Or go to bed without her. In fact, she's very much okay with putting herself in whatever situation that will have her fare best. I guess it's best to say she's always there for you. Literally.


Pepper now, she tends to do her own thing in a different kind of way. Clearly the oldest of two, she is a leader for herself and for her sister. She is fearless in most every situation and very protective. Yet, she's sweet and doesn't like when people cry. It's like in Steel Magnolias, Dolly Parton's character says she does not allow anyone to cry alone in her presence. Pepper doesn't necessarily cry but she does stop whatever she's doing to come put her 12.5 pound head right in your lap.


I've said it before, I'll say it again now, and probably again in 200 more posts, but my girls are everything. They are loyal, kind, loving, adoring, funny; they are the whole package.

Long live the dynamic duo, the PepperRoni:


Until 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 what I did t…

Change Has Arrived

New adventures lie ahead.  I've left my full time job in college admissions and am now full time into mine and Hunter's business.  I'm working on a few other ventures so when I know more I'll follow up on that.

I spent 6 years working at my last job and while I always knew I would go to my business full time eventually, it hasn't truly hit me that I'm not just taking some vacation time and spending a few days away.  I'm ready for my new normal though.

It's times like this I love having a lifestyle blog.  I'll look back on this post at some point and the thoughts had, the feelings felt will all come back.  This is a big milestone, leaving a corporate type job and going full speed as a small business owner.  Yay!!

I've got big plans for the next.  Excited for what's to come.



Let's meet again,

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:
