    3 6 5 Days

    …of not eating Fast Food. I don’t want accolades. But J sure does.  I will give him his kudos and accolades, but I still don’t need them. I’m an “all in or out” type of girl, which isn’t new. I don’t do good with moderation, probably another 2016 goal that should be worked on. That being said, food, especially Fast Food, (FF here on out) is no exception. I have done this before, J has not. The first time I did this, I went one year. The second time I did it, it was two years, now I believe this was my third time and I did it for one year (again)…

    New Year, New Adventures

    Ending 2015 with a grateful heart champs and starting 2016 cursing the champs! Normally, my entire family gets together for the first day of the year. But this year they all decided to travel…all to the same city, apparently! HAHA! This means that we were left to our own devices. It felt really odd, because my family has a party every holiday and we just didn’t this year…out of nowhere. So, knowing that, I planned a fun little day trip to the City (San Francisco, for those that don’t use this lingo) for J and I. Eater SF and Yelp were awesome in helping me plan a few activities for…

    On to the Next Chapter…

    Move over 2015, 2016 is making its way… Just being cliche with a year end post. Totes, obvi! HAHA! Okay, but for real. I’m a day early, but I was scrolling through IG for a little bit (I have way too many posts to look through the entire year) and I started remembering all the fun I had this year. Because, let’s be real, no one wants to post the bad and ugly stuff. I completely forgot I ran a freakin’ marathon this year! It was so ugly I pushed it out of my mind OR it happened in the beginning of the year and I just forgot. Either way,…

    Every Summer has a Story…

    …but our story is my favorite! I love that saying…it rings so true. Many equate the summer ending with school starting, but for a woman already in her career I don’t have that luxury anymore. Although, there is one pretty little gal in our household we get to live vicariously through summer eyes. I guess I shouldn’t forget J too, he gets a summer break. So really, I’m the minority in our family. Maybe that’s why this summer, compared to the last few, seems so different. I’m just sitting here jealous of sleeping in, days at the park, and no cares of school (re: work) for two of the loveliest,…

    Rose &Thorn [31]

    Well, HELLO 2015! Rose: Our first New Years Eve. Thorn: Still coughing and NOT running. Like my last Rose & Thorn post, I’ll just keep it to the highlights, because it was a long weekend. And by long weekend, I mean mid Wednesday to Sunday. So, instead of boring you to death, we’ll make it a pic blog post with some random words 😉  This AM felt like I had to report back to school, except it was for work. So back to the grind with no days off in sight! New Year’s Eve – Spent with just the two of us. It started with a trip to Target (to…

    Musings…..of a Girly Tomboy

    A few musings before 2014 ends… I don’t generally do resolutions, so you won’t be reading one of those cheesy posts from me. I don’t mind or disagree with goals, if you happen to set them in the beginning of the year then so be it. I would rather just continue to work on myself, physical and emotional, all year than try to hit a specific resolution. We’re all different, so work with what works best for you. Hopefully you know yourself well enough to decipher that. Every year at some point, I can be quoted as saying it was an amazing year. But, I do have to admit, 2014…
