    Musings: My First Disneyland Birthday

    It only took me 36 years… Thanks, parentals 😉 HAHA, JK, I’m totally kidding. I am so beyond blessed and spoiled by my parents, this is TOTALLY a joke! But, now I know why we generally didn’t go to Disneyland for my birthday. March in Anaheim is sketchy. Like, are you going to dump buckets or are you going to be warm and sunny? The week before we left I was looking at the weather app each day, possibly multiple times a day. All I kept seeing was the rain emoji for Sunday and cloudy for Monday. Nothing I could do about it, except for plan my outfits accordingly. Months…

    Thinking Out Loud – Like I Do Every Thursday

    Well, well, well… Amanda at .RUNNING WITH SPOONS. It’s already Thursday, I’ll be darned! I’m pretty excited about this weekend, got some fun stuff planned 🙂 6 Months-ish // When I outed my blog, I knew there would be some support and probably some backlash (can’t think of a better word). And there has been. Being an open book has always come naturally, but finding my written voice is something new. I love that my friends and family embrace my blogging, even if I’m teased endlessly about it. I get to write about my life, my musings, my doings, and really whatever I please. If one hundred or none read…

    A Taboo Topic…Or So it Seems…

    Relationships… Sometimes you have to talk about things that people don’t ever really talk about…this coming from the girl who can spew her life on this random open-to-the-public, blog…but has a hard time expressing herself in a relationship. Go figure… Yup! Pretty much sums up what I’ve learned after a few months into my new relationship. I debated on if I should write about this. I mean really, it’s up to me how much of my life I want to put into the blogosphere. It’s fairly vague in content, but just observations I’ve notices as I enter the no-so-single world! I respect our relationship and will not divulge specifics ever,…

    Thinking out Loud…Cause It’s Thursday…

    Some casual thoughts… Amanda at .RUNNING WITH SPOONS. because the freedom to type feels so good… 1. Sunburn – Those pesky parts in your hair are the worst. I completely forget about putting sunblock there, lo and behold, a couple days later I have more dandruff than an 80 year old man. Not to mention it starts off as red as a lobster and is sensitive to the touch. It isn’t like the rest of my skin, which quickly turns another shade of brown, it just burns, hurts, and peels. The culprit, with a random ring around it! 2. Salmon Cobb Salad – I have plenty of cravings, but this…

    Thinking out Loud – Numero Tres

    Randomness at its finest! Amanda at .RUNNING WITH SPOONS. I think I love doing this because I get to be completely random! I don’t have to focus or write on a specific topic, which I do enjoy, but let’s be honest, being random is much easier… 1. Eczema – if this is what is going on, then ugh! I just want it to go away. Luckily my skin tone helps to hid it, but I it makes me feel self conscious and itchy as hell 🙁 Sorry, rant over – I know there are plenty of people in this world that have worse problems than me! TMi // Small flare-up…

    Spreading Cheer

    Sometimes you just win in the game of life! Haha, okay. I’m honestly not that conceited, promise! But I do have to say, I truly enjoy working for a company that is very philanthropic and committed to the local community, on top of producing a product I love (even prior to working here)! When I started last year, I got a little taste of what we do for a local school in the neighborhood during the holiday season, so this year I made sure I volunteered when the opportunity was available. Our company, all volunteers, put on a Santa’s Workshop for the school that is one block from our office.…
