Sometimes you think to yourself that life is hard. Then it gets harder, and you're like oh, okay. Did not see that one coming! As my father-in-law finished up his last radiation treatment this week, we were all sighing a bit of relief for the Summer. That was, until, I... Continue reading

Sipping an amazing tea blend of mango + honey + green tea Panera's Oatmeal that I have been dreaming about. The most amazing mix of fruit, oats, and nuts! (eww foot pic!) I am obsessed with this nail color. It's very close to Essie's Mint Candy Apple, but the formula... Continue reading

I've never been great at keeping New Years Resolutions. I think it is because I set too many goals. I have a really hard time setting just one or two resolutions. I end up making 5-10 lifestyle changing goals that typically don't last longer than the end of January. Sometimes... Continue reading

I think the majority of women on this planet view housework the same way: never-ending, never clean enough for long enough. I've read many different cleaning plans and schedules in books, on Pinterest, and in magazines, but none of them appealed with me long enough to stick. Some schedules will... Continue reading

I spoke earlier in this post about my journey to finally getting my hands on this product. I was really excited and curious to try it because volume is my primary goal when I use a mascara. I already have pretty decent length, but I do appreciate a product that... Continue reading

This little girl brings me so much joy! This is my in-laws' dog, Mabel. She is so spunky and always tries to make us laugh. She will try to jump up on just about anything, even though her tiny legs prevent her from getting too far! We have become pals... Continue reading

Tea Lattes are among one of my favorite things on the planet. Oh how I love them! Of course, I love Frapps, but they tend to give me a belly ache afterward. These tea lattes are the perfect amount of sweet and indulgent, but they are still light enough to... Continue reading

I am a music junkie. I always listen to music when I workout and I listen to music or podcasts while cleaning and driving. I like quiet, but I do enjoy a fair amount of music. I've tried just about every music streaming app out there. I used to have... Continue reading

I'm admittedly a self-tanning addict. Skin cancer runs rampant in my family, and I'm not the biggest fan of having things frozen and burned off of me. A couple of years ago I swore off sun-bathing. I still enjoy the sun and plenty of time outside, but I am sure... Continue reading

Life just keeps speeding right along, doesn't it? The past two weeks have been busier than normal (as I mentioned before, this month is exceptionally busy), and all of the social events have had me falling into bed each night and neglecting this little spot on the internet. The photos... Continue reading

Incase you didn't catch this earlier, I am a planner. I keep a schedule, I have daily routines, and I follow them pretty religiously. I wouldn't really consider myself to be OCD, but things sometimes bother me more than I want to admit. I am horrible at "going with the... Continue reading

photo credit I can be quite obsessive sometimes. Once my brain starts down the track about a certain thing, it can be pretty hard to distract me, much less change my mind. I’m always self-reflecting about my life, who I am as a person, and who I want to become.... Continue reading

One Plus One : by JoJO Moyes I totally sped through Me Before You in March, and bawled like a baby at the ending. I was so impressed by the discovery of this new author that I dove into another one of her books. This one was less exciting for... Continue reading

I'm not naturally an open minded person. I am empathetic, but I am not the free-thinking, open minded person that I envy. I'm really bad about closing the door to my little bubble and just living life inside my little space. I don't always want to know why people do... Continue reading

I read this article and literally cannot stop obsessing over it. It's beyond accurate of me. I love learning about personality traits, birth order studies, and character. The quote above is just so relatable. I love having deep, interesting conversations, but it's rare that I just get to jump right... Continue reading

Transformation is a pretty serious word, I do realize that. I'm not seeking to lose 50 lbs, hike Mt. Everest, or whittle down to a size 0 - I want to be transformed from the inside out. This series will be about the inner (spiritual) transformation going on inside me,... Continue reading
