Ready For Fall

Yea, I said it.  I'm officially counting down for cooler days, scarves, my birthday, stews, Halloween, Thanksgiving, etc, etc.

                                 I'll be thrilled to wear cardigans/scarves again soon

Ugh, just looking at that pic above is making my fingernails sweat.  It is bloody HOT in Florida in the summer, yes we know.  However, every year, I seem to believe more regularly "this is THE HOTTEST year, right???"  It's gross hot, instant headache inducing hot, I want to punch a penguin hot.  That last example is quite dramatic.  I have nothing against penguins other than during summer when they seem to always be in freezing climates.

So with fall on my mind and my mind on fall, let's make this year's first quintessential blogger "I can't wait for fall!!" post:

1. I love how in fall an evening walk can happen before 8pm.  The sun and sky are gorge, the air more crisp, and just the overall vibe is peaceful.

2. I make chili like twice a year and yes, fall kicks that off.  I make damn good turkey chili and am proud of it.

3. Harvest themes, festivals, and pumpkins!  A little trick I do to treat myself (see what I did there? Huh, Huh?) to less unpacking and repacking decor this time of year is decorate in high amounts of pumpkins that work for Halloween and then transition into a Thanksgiving harvest motif. #suchathinker

4. Halloween is my fave holiday ever.  Love the spookiness, the sweet treats, the dress up potential.  Oh and the movies!  My God man, the movies are the best part of Halloween!

5. I'm going to list football but let me be clear; I myself am not a big fan of the sport itself.  But my Hunter loves it so while he enjoys that I usually catch up on everything else on this list that I adore about fall.  And I do enjoy tailgate food/drinkies so there's that.

I'm going to go drink more water now because, yea extra extra extra hydration required in Florida middle of July.  Wake me when September comes.

Let's 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:

"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…
