3 Things

I really love what is rapidly becoming a segment on ol' Ohgabetta here.  3 Things is a quick way to express any thoughts I've got.  I like expressions and I like thoughts so what a happy coupling.  Or is it happy tripling since its 3 things?  Solid question, Meggie.  Here we go!

Broccoli Brown Rice Cashew-
My impromptu makeshift lunch the other work day.  I sometimes experience reflux issues and when I do I stop, hammer time, and change it up.  This required a run to Publix to grab non trigger foods, read also: most tasty items.  Brown rice and broccoli help aid the process of settling reflux so with those purchases away I went back to work.  After preparing these two parts, I remembered I had dry roasted organic cashews in my desk drawer.  With a few mixed in, Wa-la.  We had what I will affectionately call Broccoli Brown Rice Cashew.  It was incredibly good and not bland or cardboard-esque which was my fear.  A redo is in order.

Awkward-
I might be one of few 30 year olds happy as all get out that MTV Awkward is back on.  I haven't watched the new episode yet but it sure is recorded and I sure will be watching ASAP.  Team Jatty forever!  Plus, Sadie and Tamara bffs???  The madness!! Give me all the teen dramedies!

Kim K Naked Selfie-
People are in madness over Kim's recent repost of an old nakey photo.  Why??  It's not your body, it's hers and she's comfortable and has every right to share that.  If there's anything we can all learn from Kimmie K is self confidence.








From what I know, the picture is from before she had her second baby and it's motivation/inspo for her as she works to get her body in different shape in the now.  Negative Nancy and Harriet Hater need to let it go.  Do you, be happy, and if you want to take it off, it's ok.  Stop fearing the body, bubble guppies.  Don't shame someone for having confidence.  If she, her husband, and her mama have no issue with her posting this, why the hell does anyone else?  Trust me, I'm not a poli sci major (thank God) but Kim Kardashian West is not going to lead to the destruction of America.  There are far worse contributors.

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.

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:
