    Thinking Out Loud – Jumbled Thoughts

    Distracted to say the least… Amanda at .RUNNING WITH SPOONS. …but not enough to get a good ‘ol TOL post in. I guess when given then opportunity to ramble, I take full advantage, even if my mind and heart are elsewhere. This week seems to have flown by with so many post-work activities I haven’t had much time to relax. Hoping tonight is different and hoping my old lady ways let me say up to catch some OITNB episodes! Season 3 is HERE! TOC // The Lovebug made it to the Tournament of Champions, so this week has been baseball heavy. Monday, Wednesday, and today will be spent at the…

    Thinking Out Loud – My Tomboy Side is Showing

    When my tomboy side shows… Amanda at .RUNNING WITH SPOONS. A week of sporty musings, yup! Pushing aside my girly tenancies and keeping it sporty up in here! It wasn’t intentional, until I started working on this post, it just came to be that way. I won’t fight it, I will embrace the sports-loving girl that I am and go with it. So, I don’t blame you if you don’t read on any further. Without further ado… Home Sweet Yard // Every single time I get a chance to get to the Yard, you better believe that I will go. Needless to say, when Poppa Bear asked if I wanted…

    Thinking Out Loud – Short Week Style

    Longest short week ever… Amanda at .RUNNING WITH SPOONS. It’s only four days, right? Then why does it feel like it’s been six days and it’s only Thursday? Ah well, the weekend will be worth it! My 2 Faves // Last night I had the pleasure of spending the evening with my two favorite men – J and Poppa Bear. After a couple hours at the Verizon store, we were starving! It was fun to enjoy these two, all to myself! We ate good food, drank good drinks, and watched sports. As I sat there, I noticed how content I was with both of their presence. It’s not very often…

    Thinking Out Loud – On a Thursday

    I’m all thought’d out… Amanda at .RUNNING WITH SPOONS. The good thing about blogging is I can make up my own words and no one can say anything. Well, technically not true. But I do and I don’t really care what anyone says. So take that… thought’d! Pitch Perfect 2 // I totally slept on the first one and don’t think I saw it until it had already been out on DVD for months, possibly over a year. But I loved it after my second go around of watching it. I liked it at first, but it wasn’t until my second viewing did I really decided I was smitten. So,…

    Thinking Out Loud – Musing Along

    April is moving crazy fast! Amanda at .RUNNING WITH SPOONS. Sweet, short, and simple…that’s all I have for you today. Here are the random things I’d like to think aloud about today! F&$^// Eff! I know you other Bloggers can sympathize with me and my frustration. I had, what I thought, was a really cool post and ALL of a sudden…GONE! Adios! See ya NEVER! My computer was acting wonky, but I never hit the delete button! So, I’m pretty sure it’s gone forever, since I tried to recover it using various ways I found via the Internets. But unless any readers are Blogger savvy, please help a sister out!…

    Thinking Out Loud – Getting Lost in Random

    Allergies have me all kinds of random today! Amanda at .RUNNING WITH SPOONS. The last few nights have been shitty sleep. My allergies are killing me, making sleep elusive and my days miserable. I went from sore throat to post nasal drip in the span of one day. Sorry, I’ll stop complaining about our 75 degree weather with a 10,000,000 pollen count :/ Ride or Dies // The three amigas. From Nordstrom, to Red Bull, to Vega. It’s been over a decade of friendship, laughter, and good times. Trin Monies, the Bestest, and I – no matter how much time goes by in between, we pick up right where we…

    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…

    Thinking Out Loud – Without Much Thought

    Just not feelin’ it today… Amanda at .RUNNING WITH SPOONS. I say that now, but then the post will end up going on for ever…and ever… Pizza // Do you ever have such an intense craving for food, but don’t give in for days. Then finally, the weather gets gloomy and pizza and cuddling just sound perfect? Yeah, that happened. I have been craving pizza for damn near a week now and we finally caved and got it last night, even though we had planned to make breakfast burritos. We did, we just made them for this AM (which were freakin’ amazing, by the way!). J’s friends stopped by, before…

    Thinking (Out Loud) About Another Year!

    As of 1:59AM this morning I am 32 years old! Age has never been an issue for me. I love getting older and I am not one to ever cringe as another candle is added to my cake. I love the life experiences I get to add to my memory bank, year after year. Some years are better than others, but each year I walk away a different woman, ready to take on the next!  I don’t like to put expectations on a certain age, then I won’t end up disappointed if I don’t meet what I was hoping for. So when 31 brought me J and his little, shining…

    Thinking Out Loud – The Love Edition

    T-minus 2 days to lovah’s day, y’all! Amanda at .RUNNING WITH SPOONS. I definitely am, and always have been, a huge proponent of Valentine’s Day. I think celebrating love is an amazing thing. Yes, it is very over commercialized. Yes, I love being sent flowers. Yes, chocolate tastes good. Yes, a fancy dinner with your boo thang is lovely. But I was also single for about 9 Valentine’s Day’s in a row. I still loved the day. I didn’t have anyone sending me flowers or sweet love notes, but I still loved watching everyone else celebrate the love they had in their lives. Two years ago my parents did the…
