    Musings: The Elusive Black Badge

    Wait…you don’t know what I’m talking about?!? Badge, not the card! Does anyone even care about the AMEX black card anymore, anyways? I digress. I’ve been Yelping for N I N E years! Holy shit! That is a lot of time writing reviews. Anything from Khol’s to the newest restaurant to pop up in Sacramento. Yes, you read that correctly. I’ve Yelped Khol’s, among a slew of other things. At the end of each year, I nominate myself for another year of Yelp elitness. Yes, Yelp allows and encourages you to nominate yourself each year. And so I do, with no shame. To think, this all started as a bet…

    I Have A Secret…

    …and I have no willpower to keep it inside. At all! This idea has been brewing for awhile. A loooong time ago, it started with the Bestest, but nothing came to fruition. No one to blame. We just talked about it, but never followed-up with it. Then more recently I had been thinking about it, while simultaneously thinking about what I’m doing with this blog. No dramatics at all, but just thinking about this space. I’m not like those bloggers who do this for a living or do it for any monetary value (although that would be awesome, I love money and free stuff), nor do I even have anything…

    Musings…..of a Girly Tomboy

    A few musings before 2014 ends… I don’t generally do resolutions, so you won’t be reading one of those cheesy posts from me. I don’t mind or disagree with goals, if you happen to set them in the beginning of the year then so be it. I would rather just continue to work on myself, physical and emotional, all year than try to hit a specific resolution. We’re all different, so work with what works best for you. Hopefully you know yourself well enough to decipher that. Every year at some point, I can be quoted as saying it was an amazing year. But, I do have to admit, 2014…

    Five Things Friday – Just 5, Promise

    Because sometimes I write too much… Thanks, Clare! I have a lot to say, about pretty much nothing. Apparently I’ve taken this whole “blogging” thing in stride and let my inner thoughts spew more than I probably should, or than you care to read. So today, I’ll keep it short!   5 Things I Felt This Week:   Happy // Okay, I know, I know, so cliche. But it’s true, I’ve spent more days at Midtown than I ever have AND have been able to take J and my friend Haley for their first time! I also had a great evening, enjoying HH with friends (and J), while watching my…

    Rose & Thorn [17]

    Busy, but not… Rose: Catching up and spending time with good friends… Thorn: Experiencing one of my fears with blogging, but realizing I’m completely okay with it. It was one of those weekends that felt like it flew by, but the calendar wasn’t actually jam packed like it could be. A lot of time was spent with friends in a low key environment, hence, the busy but not busy… Without further ado… FRIDAY I’ve been dying to watch my little Lovebug play soccer every since his season started. So, when I promised him on Thursday night, I had to show up to his game on Friday! It was actually a…

    Randomeness…

    Because I enjoy the act of being random and I do a damn, fine good job of it…at least in my opinion:   Guilty by Motivation: So, I literally haven’t take an actual “rest” day in a LONG time. I don’t say this to brag, more to maybe admit to myself. If I’m not running, then I’m lifting (which I actually love to do), or playing soccer. But On Monday we had a bye and it was an “active rest” day. Since this weekend was insanely busy, I didn’t get any errands done. I decided to get a few done, then go to the gym. Halfway through the errands, I…
