Current Obsessions Of Summer 2019
  1. Currently Listening To On Audible

These audiobooks got me through some of the most boring moments of my summer. A friend at work turned me on to Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine and what a fascinating emotional rollercoaster it was to listen to. I don’t care who you are, you’ll find something to love about this book and hearing it read by Cathleen McCarron makes it that much more captivating. I couldn’t recommend it more. For my second choice, I went with an obvious favorite. Queer Eye: Love Yourself. Love Your Life. is perfect for everyone and anyone wanting some life advice, or who can’t get enough of the Fab Five - which is just about everyone. It’s funny, informative, and read by the Fab Five. Need I say more?

HelloFresh Delivers - In More Ways Than One!

Sometimes moms come up with some great ideas, and this was one of them.

A few months back my loving and resourceful mother suggested to me and Ethan that we look into food delivery services so that we could be more fiscally responsible - rather than eating out almost every night. Also because it’s healthier for you and, as we’d soon discover, more fun and convenient than trying to shop for groceries and cooking our own food from scratch.

The Importance of Writing For Yourself

Totally and completely mentally blocked, that’s how I feel right now.

Hello again, friends. You might have noticed I’ve been away for a while. Sorry about that - but I really appreciate you sticking it out with me. Which I’m assuming you have if you’re reading this now. I promise I won’t be MIA forever and I’m not at a loss for words, but rather just feeling lost on how to say them. I did, excitingly, post a new update all about my visit to Jacksonville, Florida recently, which is worth a view and can be found here.

Where I'm At

Holy shiz, how is it nearly March?

I’ve seen a lot of other bloggers that I follow - and for the record, I follow a quite a few - do cheeky little blog posts just updating their readers about their life and what’s to come. I’ve done a few heavier, reflective life updates in the past, but never have I just sat down and written as if I were speaking to a friend about what’s up. So, here I am. 💁🏼‍♀️

I'm Detoxing - Week One

I'm detoxing and it sucks. Seriously, it sucks. Don't worry, I'm not detoxing from drugs, just donuts… For the last week or so, I've been on a no sugary foods diet. I have not eaten or drank one sugary thing since last Monday and I am both suffering and supremely proud of myself simultaneously.

I'm A Quitter

I’m a quitter. There, I said it.

I have quit on - not everything - but most things that I’ve tried in my life. I’ve given up on so many dreams and plans when the going got too tough. I’ve ALWAYS been a quitter. I quit Girl Scouts in the 2nd grade. I quit volleyball in 3rd. I quit classes when they were too hard. I quit clubs that made me feel out of place. I even quit on career choices and life goals when someone else told me I couldn’t do it… I think you get the picture.

100 Questions No One Ever Asks

It’s been a while since I’ve sat down and shared a few things about myself for you all to enjoy. I love being really transparent and open and I truly get a kick out of answering some of the silly questions that linger around in the cybersphere waiting to be answered. So I thought on this fine evening, I’d sit down and take part in the 100 Questions Tag that has gone around the internet one or two times.

I Believe in the Power of Setting Goals for Yourself. What About You?

I believe in New Year’s Resolutions. I believe in fresh starts and new beginnings. One year has passed and no matter how wonderful it was, there were always lessons to be learned along the way. When a new year is upon us, I always take a solid look at my life, my attitudes, and my behaviors and think about what things I’d like to leave in the old year for the good of the order. I make promises to myself to change things that I don’t like or that I don’t think suit me and my life anymore - and I when I make promises, I make damn sure to keep them.

Dear 2018, It's Been Real. K. Thx. Bai.

I say a lot of things in my day-to-day life - most of them completely true. Sometimes I exaggerate, sometimes I gloss over the nitty-gritty, but don’t we all? Where I’m going with this is that I wanted to make sure you all know that each and every word I leave here for you to read is as true as can be said, when it’s said.

25 Things I Should Have Learned By 25, But Haven't

Oh my god, it's my birthday. And I'm a quarter of a century old. I'm so calling BS on this.

Once you hit your mid-twenties, aren't you supposed to be wiser and more mature? Each day I wake up and still feel like a teenager or younger! I still make the same mistakes that I've been making my entire life.

Maybe, This Time, Popular Opinion is Right.

I’ve never been one for fads. I know they pass and I have very little interest in being a follower. Especially when the fad goes against my very being. Like gaucho pants… I haven’t a clue who thought those were a good idea, but the thought of them still haunt me to this day. They just go to show that popular opinion is NOT always correct.

52 Things That Top My Pet Peeves List

I have a lot of issues with a lot of things. Pretty much everything irritates to on some level.

As you might have guessed, I’m not much of a people person because of this. Once, at university, I was challenged to make a list of all my pet peeves and read them aloud to a group. I filled a page and then some; people were getting bored listening to them by the end.

See You In the Next Quarter, Friends.
