Let’s Catch Up

The favorite thing about my last post is that I wrote it on an ordinary Sunday night. The day after Cinco de Drinko, so perhaps still feeling a little rough. Little did I know that the next day, I would receive the biggest surprise of my life. On Monday, May 7, somewhere around 2:00 in…

Read All About It

It’s May, so if you’ve kept up on your New Year’s resolutions, kudos to you. As I’ve mentioned, I don’t believe in them, but I did make some promises to myself to help me be a better me this year. In addition to Weight Watchers and yoga, I also decided to read more. I’ll be…

Anxiety Prime

“Anxiety” and “anxious” are words that get thrown around a lot. Some people are just anxious, others have some form of anxiety disorder. For a lot of us who suffer from some form of anxiety, a common way of coping is to joke about it. At least 5 times a day, I see some type…

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…

Putting the “elf” in self care

Did Christmas happen already? Sometimes, I honestly still feel like it’s still coming up in a few days, then I remember that it did in fact happen, and it was lovely. Busy, but lovely. We spent a lot of time in the car, but we also saw a lot of family. I was really low…

Fall Festivities

Some of the feedback I’ve gotten on this blog is that people like to read about how I celebrate the holidays. So, I thought I’d write a little bit about my favorite traditions from Halloween and autumn in general. Halloween is my second favorite holiday after Christmas, and I have several traditions that regardless of…
