tired and sore, but glad

This_day_is_NOPE.

I have been putting in a ton of time at the gym. I had been yo-yo dieting this whole year and somehow my lose 15 lbs by summer plans were traded in for a fast gain of ANOTHER 15. Not cute, not the plan and I’m way pissed at myself. Every indulgent bite I took […]

The first thing that goes when my life gets nuts is my blog, so forgive my absence if you noticed one. My mom has been in the hospital, I have several new commitments, and a fresh batch of oh so lovely personal life drama, so it’s been hectic. And horrible. But the days go by […]

projects and things

Chalkboard_wall_done.__

I took last week away from blogging and got some things done around the house. I painted my kitchen, did a chalkboard wall, threw away some junk. It feels awesome. Which leads to the fact that I just now want to spruce up literally every other area in our house. Haha. Really, though. I crave […]

on being kind

be-kind

Kindness is so important to me, because I just wasn’t raised to be kind. I was raised to be strong and hold my own. To never let anyone push me around and to be tough. My mom was proud when people told her I was full of sass and attitude just like her. At the […]

a book in 30 days

write

I am filled with motivations today. For my home, biz, blog, so so much, that I feel that I need to just “go do” versus sit here and talk about it. I find that when motivation strikes, it’s best to run with it. I also find, that if I share about it, it helps to […]

Lazy_bums__Please_no_real_life_again_tomorrow_

This past long weekend, we did a whole lot of nothing and it was nice. Not the refreshing nice, more like an oh crap I just want to not do any of the things even longer than this, nice. Lazy out of exhaustion, not just lazy, if you will. But as you know, sometimes when […]

back from the fair

fair

It’s been so long since I have posted to the blog! I honestly didn’t even crack open my laptop for over a week and I missed it! We spent the last week of our life living (pretty much) at our county fair. Yes, at the fair. It was totally last-minute little business venture, and it definitely […]

releasing negativity

think-positive

Last night as I was laying in bed I decided to make a conscious effort to only think positive thoughts as I laid there, mind whirling 1000 miles a minute as usual. I wouldn’t dwell on the unfinished tasks of the day, the stresses or worries, but only the good things that are in my […]
