New hair color and cut = great day

Some days are just fantastic. It’d been a long time since I’d had one that put me at one with the all good and I was in need of something stellar to change the funky mood I’d been in for the last several days. Over the weekend, I went to a training that had me ...

When the bow breaks…

A couple of close friends of mine have recently had a baby. I’ve mentioned April repeatedly in this blog and she and her husband Chris have a new baby girl who is just the most beautiful and cool little girl out there! It was a pure joy for their friends and family to watch April ...

Because Trivia night is no laughing matter…

My friend April is one of the calmest, most level-headed people I know. She rescues animals and has the sweetest nature. She’s quiet and always willing to lend a hand to anyone that needs it.

Those Crazy Kids

It’s been a month since I’ve been back to school and the one thing I miss, more than most of the other fun summer things I’ve given up, is the biweekly ritual my friends and I have known as trivia night. Every other week we pick a night and we go to the local Mexican ...

Walking the dog

For the last several months, I’ve been “off my program.” My program had been eating good for me foods and losing weight. Unfortunately, I’d hit a plateau, and after a month of said plateau, I gave up the fight. It wasn’t a huge deal for me, but I wanted to keep moving forward on my ...

This one’s for the dorks

I’m a dork. Full-fledged geek extraordinaire. I’m ok with it and I’m not sure why others aren’t, especially when I’ve embraced this aspect of myself. Is it no longer cool to go with the self-acceptance? Dork has such a negative connotation, but there is something to be said for people that are eccentric, quirky or don’t go ...

Southern hospitality from a Northerners perspective

Over the weekend, I went to one of the most beautiful weddings I’ve ever attended. My husband was one of the wedding party and while we traveled a little ways to be there, we likely did not travel the farthest to be in attendance. We drove about 4 hours on a Friday morning and when ...
