The Help, Kourtney Kardashian, and a Digital Detox Walk into this Blog

I'm just stopping in here because I feel like I have a few minutes to myself to just babble.  These days babbling is hard to come by.  Who am I kidding; no it isn't!

-Our business is great and keeping us busy.  We have goals in mind for more and new plans always excite/terrify/keep me running in circles.  More to come.

-Pepper got her nails done this weekend and a fabulous bath.  Girlfran gets the pampering more than me these days!

-Roni spins while she does everything.  Specifically but not limited to: going down the 16 stairs to our front door; when eating doggie ice cream; and as she leaps down from the couch.  It's a miracle she didn't get my equilibrium.  Sister sister must not get dizzy dizzy.

-Kate Spade is my kryptonite and I am quite ok with this.  When I make my first mil, I know where at least half of its going. #halfkidding

-How To Get Away With Murder = new favorite TV show.

-Scott Disick is more than a moron for many reasons.  Like for real though, Kourtney is a straight fox, particularly after 3 babies.  Kick, kick, kick yourself silly boy.

-Friday night ambitions lately: takeout from our fave neighborhood sushi/Chinese spot, Property Brothers/Love It or List It, and feet rubbing.  See also: every day life ambitions.

-The Help was on TV tonight and while it is not my first time watching it at all, it captivated me as always.  This cast has to be one of the absolute best ever, ever!  I cannot rave enough.  Especially since this is one of those rare instances where the movie did the book justice.  Can I get an AMEN???

-Hunter and I celebrated being together for 8 years back in August.  A proper post of tribute to come, but I'll say this: I adore him with so much of my being.  I feel beyond lucky to say that after almost a decade with a person, he is my favorite to laugh with, bitch with, smile with, get frustrated with, and do it again and again every day.  Love is hard to come by and I think we're pretty fortunate to do life together.

-I turned 30 since I last stopped in here, another proper post to come on this. #30thingsIknow

-We woke up this morning and did our workout at 5am.  It was dark and felt amazing to knock out a few miles before the rest of the world got stirring.  I could get used to switching up my workout time of day to early mornings, y'all!

-We are detaching for Thanksgiving and I need books and board games!  I plan to take full advantage of not being as attached to technology for a few days.  Digital detox, party of one.

And with that, I shall be back another time for another tale.  Love and sunshine til then, people.

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…

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:

Irrational Rationing...

The past year of my life has been spent blogging; two of my four classes necessary for graduation required them and at my internship I blogged. Why not give the world my opinion on any subject I choose? It's free and it's mine to share, right? Absolutely!

So, to start, what do I want my tone to be? Tone is a very important factor, you know. It can make or break a piece. People want to identify a tone or purpose, which they often misconstrue as meaning the same thing. Oh, people-my favorite breed:)

So let's see. There's:
Informative? Will I provide people with knowledge about various subjects and try to teach? Eh.

How about super upbeat and positive? Like, I'll provide people with a reason to live to log on to read the next uplifting piece of blog. Eh.

How about super dreary? Dreary works. Most people would rather be perfectly miserable than divinely happy. Eh. Decisions.

Hmm, maybe all my posts will be so contemplative. Hey! That's not a bad racket. Contemplative in…
