    Musings: A Common Denominator

    A death, a wedding reception, and a birthday… What do they all have in common? The ability to remind me that I have chosen to surround myself with a great group of friends. I’ve been told on countless occasions that it’s rare, while simultaneously being complimented, on the strength and length of my friendships. Secretly, I’m also glad that many of them have blended together and most of the various groups of friends have all become friends. Some people may say I spread myself to thin. I appreciate your opinion, but I completely beg to differ. I chose to put a huge emphasis on friendship. This isn’t to say that…

    Just because I’m grown doesn’t mean I can’t enjoy Spring Break… The merry-go-round continues and brings us back to  Arman @ The Big Man’s World ! As always, peep Jenn’s blog to see where it all started and how to join the partay! It never really bugged me that I didn’t get a spring break anymore, even though I’d see plenty of friend’s and their kids enjoying this week, year after year. Well, that was until J and L both had one and I felt left out. So during their SB, I took Wednesday off to celebrate my faux Spring Break! So here is WIA(last)W! Breakfast We didn’t set an…

    Thinking Out Loud – Messy Thoughts

    I’m I’m Literally, just thinkin’ out loud today… Amanda at .RUNNING WITH SPOONS. I know this is redundant, but I love doing this Thursday link-up! It allows me to just let my current thoughts spew out and sometimes it even sheds light/insight to my own thoughts and ideas. So, thank you Amanda…slowly and surely I’m growing as a person, as I learn to adapt to this writing lifestyle that I have become a part of… Wiiiiings // For 4+ years of my life I touted ‘deceptive and fraudulent’ information. But you know what, I don’t care. Red Bull was one of my most memorable jobs that I have EVER had!…

    Rose & Thorn [15]

    Not every weekend turns out how you hoped… Rose: Friday night seeing all of my faves and Saturday girls brunch… Thorn: Learning to forgive when you’re hurt… I literally don’t have the energy – emotional or physical – to give this post what it deserves. Thanks for stopping by and I appreciate your daily commitment to my randomness, more than you’ll ever know. I just had a tough weekend. There aren’t too many pictures and there aren’t too many words I have left… I literally tried to start writing this and I’m just not into it. So I’m sticking with pictures from the weekend. xoxo FRIDAY Scot’s on the River…

    WIAW – Cause Snacking is How I Roll…

    I snack to kill time in between meals… Thanks, Jenn! When someone asks my hobbies, “snacking” is always in the top 5! I’m a constant snacker, more so at my desk, rather than on the weekends when I’m out and about. I feel like a slight apology is in order, because I never really follow the WIAW rules guidelines and I kinda just do my own thing. Since I don’t ever really document every meal of any specific day, you get themes. So today, is snacking…things I have snapped quick pics of lately, before my grubby little hands could eat them 😉 My favorite road trip snack and/or pick-me-up snack.…
