#VeryMarriedMunterhegans

Hunter and I are planning our wedding.  We've chosen a date, narrowed down oodles of venues, know our desired cuisine, and have colors and decor in mind.  This is weird.

Hunter and I have been together almost 10 years.  Now, when I say we have been together that long of time already, I mean really, we're one of those couples who committed to together very early on.  We met in college and did the casual dating/bar hopping good time and by 8 months in we got our first apartment.  Now, this was definitely a fast evolvement at the ripe age of 22 but I can honestly say it was one of those amazing fits and it didn't feel nuts at all.its always felt right and for that I am grateful to say it still does.
23 years old!  Babies!
We've been together almost 10 years and engaged for five.  We've said since day one we would have a wedding celebration when we wanted and how we wanted and by god we are.  Our requests are simple: great food, dance producing music, and a good damn time.  We want our friends and family to laugh and dance and love their time with us celebrating us during this milestone we are pursuing.  It's kind of wild to think we're doing this.

Why now?  Glad you asked.  Because we want to and we both giggle and snarl eagerly at the thought of a decade together.  (A decade!  An entirely new generation is upon us!  When did that happen?). Quite honestly, it feels right meeting the 10 year mark and then embarking into the wedded side.  We're also practical humans and it is what it is but there are some things that god forbid they happen, Hunter or I could be prevented from being with the other and having any say in anything.  Not a fun part of adulthood but a consideration none the less.  To surmise, we love one another, and we are happy as we are no matter legal marriage or not, and I think we've had a hell of a good first 10 years together and we are just as eager to see what another will bring.  Boomshakalaka.
Older!  Wiser!  Still chugging from a bottle!  At least it's Mich Ultra now.
I love planning parties and our party is shaping up to surely be a favorite.  I'll share details along the way as they happen.



Yours truly,

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:
