Take Care!

Those who know me well, know that self-care is a huge priority for me lately. Those same people know that for me, it was not always a priority. I’m here to tell you how I’ve been able to work it into my life and budget. But mainly, I’m here to convince you that you are…

Snow Day: Sleepless Beauty Style

Ah, a snow day. Something so rare, that we (myself and Andy), make damn sure that we enjoy it! Here’s how a sleepless beauty (on Weight Watchers) spends her snow days: I’d like to tell you that I slept in, but really, I didn’t sleep well consistently all night, so I did stay in bed…

Namaste, February.

It’s comforting to know that it isn’t just Andy and I (and our family) who felt like January was THE LONGEST MONTH EVER. We weren’t sure if it was just us, grieving, and trying to make sense of the loss we suffered. But from the looks of social media, we now know that everyone felt…

Another case of the Januaries

Well, we are already almost a whole month into 2018. And while I don’t believe in resolutions, I did want to take the clean slate of a new year to make some changes. With the exception of blogging more, I’ve been sticking to them. But more on that later. And why have I waited until…

Untitled (No, really).

So, I just opened my laptop and my first instinct was to start working. No! It’s time to blog, baby! I’ve been mulling over this blog every night this week that I can’t sleep. It’s not on a specific topic, more of just some general updates and things that I think about when I can’t…

Meow

For those of you who don’t know, we have been foster parents to a beautiful calico cat, Rick O’Shea, since July 30. It all started with me, feeling like I needed a hobby – that’s not the right word for caring for a pet – but you know what I mean! With graduate school being…

Bub Bash in Nash

For our summer vacation this year, we chose to spend a long weekend in Nashville, Tenn. I had been dying to visit this city, but Andy took some convincing. Once he was sold on the idea and we booked our travel, I started to explore some things to do in Nash. I had no idea…

Enough of the bullshit, Stace.

Sorry for the language, you guys, but really. I need to berate myself somewhat publicly, on this blog, so that you all can hold me accountable. And better yet, so I can hold myself accountable. As you may know, I was diagnosed with colitis over the summer. When that first happened, I was so scared….

Friday the 13th is a real thing, you guys.

I mean it, and in the month leading up to my 30th birthday and most recently, it’s really been affecting me. And it’s not just Friday the 13th, you guys. That’s just the tip of the iceberg. Full moons and Mercury in retrograde literally fucks me right up. Let’s take it back to May 2016….
