Life is so fucking weird. If there is one thing I learned in 2014…it’s that. Life is weird, and what’s worse? Is it, or God, or whatever higher power you might believe in is absolutely calling the shots. You are not really in control of hardly anything. Kind of a horrible feeling, amiright? There is one thing, though…I feel like we have all been granted control of. Telling the people we care about…just how much we care about them while they… Read more »

You guys…this has been like 3 years in the making. Ever since I bought this house I stared at this perfect little space that was to be my very own office. Unfortunately, I never made the time to really fix the thing up. The walls were tan…the carpet was tan…and the furniture was old. It was the least attractive room of the house…and yet, I expected to come there and find inspiration. I didn’t. As a matter of fact, I… Read more »

For those of you who hadn’t heard…2014 hasn’t been my easiest year. Like, at all. Unfortunately, this blog suffered because of it. I spent a lot of time writing for myself…instead of everyone else…and I just never found much inspiration to post here. I’ve missed it immensely. I’ve missed the chance to interact with my readers and my followers. I’ve missed reading your comments and your emails and your advice. This space makes me happy. So I want to come… Read more »

I’ve spent my entire life doing exactly what I am supposed to. Always what was expected of me. My life was perfectly molded around the people I loved. My days began and ended with this thought: “what can I do today to make everyone around me as happy as possible?” I’m hoping that most of you can see how unhealthy that sort of behavior is…I hope you can identify what was missing. I never once asked myself: “what can I do… Read more »

Oh, heyyy Happy Monday! This week is beginning with a recent transition in my career path which is resulting in me working from home for most of each week. My life has been all about change as of late…lots of personal, physical & spiritual changes being made! What is it about change (no matter how good it might be) that makes me so uneasy?? This new work environment is unfamiliar, and therefore, I have done an immense amount of research… Read more »

I just couldn’t let Friday pass without stopping by to say hi! And to share a few of my favorite internet finds from the week! Behold….a bunch of guys attempt to do their girlfriends’ makeup. I giggled. A lot. Reminds me of the many times I have asked Andrew to comb my hair (because who doesn’t love that??) and he holds the brush like a toddler trying to understand how to use a fork for the first time. This Raspberry-Mango… Read more »

I know what you’re thinking. I live in Omaha…it’s 20 degrees out…and I am still chattering on about Spring. The truth is…I think I’m obsessed. It’s all I can think about!! And so, in an attempt to tide myself over until snow turns to rain and we break out the flip flops…I have been compiling a to-do list of sorts. Consider it a celebration of leaving winter behind! 1. Get a blowout. I have never had one! And it just so… Read more »

I needed to have a really good weekend. This winter has been plagued with illness, bad news, loss and some strained relationships…and despite my best efforts to “go with the flow”…I have to admit that lately…I’ve been feeling a bit blue. So, when I found out about the “Beerfest” event, I decided to purchase Andrew and I tickets on a whim. The idea of doing something totally different from our regular routine seemed like a refreshing idea. We had so. much…. Read more »

Happy Friday!! As a relatively new blogger, I am just now understanding the value in “link-ups”! A little extra traffic and a lot of new friends! So, let’s celebrate this Friday with a quick post and link-up with one of my new favorite gals…Holly from Hey, Hollywood! …is perpetually doing 15 things at once. Even on the couch…books, magazines laptop, cell phone, Vampire Diaries. And I’m conquering them all. At. The. Same. Time. …bakes better than I cook. …takes selfies,… Read more »

It’s about that time….when I get antsy for spring. I’m sick of jeans and boots and the whole ORDEAL of getting dressed for a winter day and quite frankly, I could use a tan. I look ill. I long for flip flops, open windows, patio hopping, Summer Shandy, golf outings with my man and, of course, the smell of fresh cut grass everywhere. Of course, days like today (it was 60 degrees!) only encourage my spring-time daydreams. But, a look… Read more »
