Blogtober 2014: Favorite Posted Instagram Picture

This is one of the best writing prompts ever! I love love love Instagram so it was quite difficult to choose just one picture that is my ultimate favorite.

I thought of several ways to have categories of favorites like one for the dogs, one of muh frandsss, one from TBT edition, and of course faves of my Hunter bear. Man, this was hard!

I decided to push myself to a commitment of what the assignment asks for. I have a way of not being able to commit to just one of anything, I mean JUST LOOK at my bangles collection! I opted to reflect based on what this fabulous writing prompt is asking for.

Low and behold, my favorite Instagram picture is..................



I chose this because it represents everything I hold dear: my Hunter, my beautiful baby girl dogters, our home, and all the crazy, good fun that life is. I mean, seriously, my little dog is wearing elf ears, and my big dog was about to take off after a squirrel or a deer, or a leaf, which is why the endearing father holding on to his pup was really him just restraining her.

To me, this picture represents all of the above mentioned, it's definitely a throwback (hello blonde Meggie), Hunter and the girls are there, and ultimately it's a representation of the support and love we have all around us from our loved ones. Or just maybe it's the elf ears on Roni, hard to say.

So this is my favorite Instagram picture. I cannot wait to see what yours is!

Until 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…

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…
