    Musings: I Was Tidying Up Before It Was Cool

    Simplifying for my life, is as tidying up for Marie Kondo. I can’t truly say I was doing this before it was cool, but I can say I was using the basics of Kondo’s method without truly knowing I was. I knew the very basics about her method and I knew she had a book about it all — years ago though. It never popped into my consciousness back at the end of April last year, when I started my process. I remember hearing about touching your stuff and asking yourself if they ‘spark joy.’ I kinda laughed at it, slightly mocked it, but thought it was silly, yet interesting…

    Where You Lead, I Will Follow…for 16 Years!

    Fast talkin’, caffeine guzzlin’, Stars Hollow livin’ duo! Can you believe it’s been 16 years since we first met Lorelai and Rory? I can’t, but I’m so freakin’ excited that they will be releasing four new episodes on November 25th. Ever since it was leaked via social media, I’ve been dying to see it. Yes, dying! I’ve always loved GGs (here on out, written as that in my post) and own all of the DVD’s, Netflix just made it easier by having all the episodes uploaded (this year). I have no idea how I started watching it, but I remember it being on the “weird” channel, the WB. I remember…

    GALentine's Coffee Date

    Because love, Gal’s, and coffee just go together! Lately, running has been on my mind a lot…even if I haven’t been actually running the miles I am supposed to be. Our GALentine’s coffee date, will most likely be me talking about running and all the random stuff. So sit back in your comfy chair, enjoy whatever drink makes your heart happy, and let’s get to chatting! Running for ME // Once I figured this out and really believed it, running became a little more enjoyable. For the longest time I ran for others — to tell people how fast I was running, the distance I ran, and whenever I would PR.…

    WIAW – Veggie Week Ugliness

    It’s that time of the month again! No, not that time of the month. It’s Veggie Week! So here are my eats from yesterday, pardon the plainness that went on – just keepin’ it real over here! But before I get into yesterday, venture over to Arman at The Big Man’s World, who is graciously hosting today’s linkup. Also, make sure you take a peek at where it all started with Jenn! I’d highly recommend stopping by either spots and taking a look at their drool worthy food, because mine will leave you ‘happy that you didn’t eat my eats yesterday’ 😉 Breakfast I’m trying to be resourceful (re: baller-on-a-budget)…

    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…
