    Musings: Lash Out

    Lash out… But not in the psycho, angry at the world kinda way. Like the beautiful, lashing of your eyes! I’d been saying for a while I wanted them. I have done extensive, local research for cost and skills. This is an expensive journey to start, from the initial set to the frequency of fills. That all being said, I decided to not to go for it. Eventually, I started the process over again, trying to find a reasonable solution. I’d done three rounds of this, without following through. Mostly, because the cost seems exorbitant and I already have enough girly maintenance that’s built into my budget. I honestly couldn’t justify…

    Musings: Celebrate Life…with Some Glitter

    When your girlfriend is officially cancer free, you celebrate. You celebrate with class, which obviously means glitter! Duh! There are some rules about what determines a person to be Cancer Free, so please be cognizant of what it actually means. Kelly, our superhero, has undergone rounds of chemo, radiation, and way too many hospital visits/stays to recount. But as of the beginning of the month, she told us she no longer needed Chemo and that she did not have any cancer in her body! We all were so emotional and full of happiness for her. To say one is cancer free, I believe you have to hit the five year…

    Musings: Post It or It Didn’t Happen

    So many thoughts, so many feels. via Pinterest I realize the irony in this Pin, trust me I do. What does a girl with (currently, can change at any time) 3,674 Instagram posts, 9,797 Tweets, and countless FB posts have any business posting something like this? Because it resonates wholeheartedly with me. Because I do ME! I know life happens in between posts and tweets. I know life is messy, happy, ugly, hard, sad, and frustrating. Life is even beyond those few adjectives I just listed. Trust me, the last three weeks I’ve felt every damn adjective in the book of life! That does NOT mean that I don’t understand…

    Five Things Friday – Be Happy!

    Smiling…for no reason! Thanks, Clare! Not that it should be a bad thing, but I’m in a great mood today. I guess, sometimes I feel bad for being so happy and content with my life. There are so many ugly things happening, in addition to hurt and pain, and I’m sitting here smiling at what I have and what surrounds me. So today, I will only post 5 Things That Are Making Me Happy and keep it to just that: 1. National Sibling Day — Today is that day. If you’ve been around these parts at all, then it’s not really important that I remind you how amazing it is…

    A Misunderstood Happy

    Sometimes I feel that I give off too much of a happy vibe. I’m not sure why this accidental pic seems fitting for this post, but it does. If you were to peruse my Book of Face or Instagram, you’d think I live a pretty happy life. Or so I’ve been told… Which I do, I won’t argue that. But also, I don’t ever want it to be misconstrued that I walk around with my head in the clouds and am happy about every single thing in my life. Because, I am not. I am the first one to admit that I keep my emotions under lock and key. Yes,…

    Thinking Out Loud – Musings Para Mi

    Renewed, straight into busy… Amanda at .RUNNING WITH SPOONS. Oddly, it doesn’t feel at all weird that I took yesterday off – from blogging and work. I did think about the WIAW post that would have normally gone up, but I didn’t feel a huge desire to run and write one before I enjoyed my day. So, I didn’t. It was nice to have a mid-week break, I feel renewed, although work is busy. Tradeshow season is upon us! Spring Break // I miss them. I miss that free week of nothing to do during the first part of Spring. Apparently when you have kids, you don’t miss it as…

Count your blessings. Give more than you take. Enjoy this first spring weekend and surround yourself with good people and good vibes!

    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,…

    Good Things Come in Small Packages

    For instance…a tiny Buddha perhaps… Source I have no idea how or when I came across this website. However, on a daily basis, I can either appreciate the quote(s) they post or the article(s) they post. This website is a compilation of various contributors on all things about life. Yes, there is plenty of very similar website, however, I’ve become to really appreciate this website over any others. I mean, Buzzfeed is pretty freaking hilarious, but I can’t really take much from there…but some burned calories from laughter. They are all things social media with a Facebook and Twitter, I’m not certain about Instagram. But, all I know is that…
