As you’ve probably figured out by now, I’m not usually one for making a blog post every day. I normally don’t really have the time or energy required to do that. And so a lot of “blog challenges” aren’t really something I ever take on or complete - particularly if they’re formatted in an “every… Continue reading 30 Days of Gratitude and Reflection
Just popping in to wish you all a Happy St. Paddy's Day with an offering of some of my favorite Irish folk songs as an apology for having been so absent lately. Things have been crazy, and I've been dealing with some personal and family stuff, and blah blah blah, excuses, excuses. So here!… Continue reading Happy St. Paddy’s Day!
Because we’ve had a bunch of pre-scheduled posts in a row, I wanted to do a quick “currently” post yesterday (The title “What’s Up, Wednesday?” just sounds SO MUCH BETTER), but I kiiiinnnndddd of let yesterday get away from me. It all started when I started trying to find the text of the eyewitness testimony… Continue reading What’s Up, Thursday?
I don't do roundups much, but with Valentine's Day coming up TOMORROW (I know, right? When did that happen, and what happened to January?) I figured a quick roundup of fast, last-minute DIY projects from around the web might be just the ticket. Starting with these adorable heart-shaped friendship bracelets from HonestlyWTF (pictured above -… Continue reading Last-minute DIY Valentine’s Day Roundup
As I said in my New Year's Goals post, I read a ton throughout the year - but rarely get the opportunity to read a whole book solely for myself. I've just slipped out of the habit of using my free time for pleasure reading. And I miss it. So this year I made it… Continue reading 12 Books for 2015
Just a quickie for our first Mani Monday of 2015. Apologies for the slightly blurry photo - I had to use my phone for this one since I forgot my big camera over the holidays (although it shows off the sparkle quite nicely!). My manicure for the Christmas holidays was a simple one, with polishes… Continue reading New Year’s Mani Monday
This year I've decided that instead of making general resolutions, I'm going to try to set slightly more specific goals. While I had a moderate amount of success with some of my plans from last year, the ones that I failed the most at were the ones that could have easily been made more specific… Continue reading New Year, New Goals
Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a happy and fun-filled holiday season - the Christmas/New Year's season is by far one of my busiest, so I'm still playing catch-up a bit here. I've got a couple New Year's related posts on the docket for the next week, but in general am still cleaning stuff… Continue reading HAPPY 2015!!!
Christmas is my favorite holiday. Hands down. People like me are the reason Christmas stuff is already flooding store shelves in October. Starting the day after Thanksgiving, I basically turn into a 5 year old as the lights and decorations start getting dragged out - that is, if I haven't already gotten too excited and… Continue reading A “Meh”rry Christmas…
So... uhhh... I guess it's a week and a half into December? What? When did that happen? But... uhhh... I haven't even made my Thanksgiving thankful for post yet. Whoops. I SWEAR Thanksgiving was just yesterday. SWEAR. But anyway, this year I'm thankful for the little things. My schedule has made for a very overwhelming… Continue reading I’m Thankful For…
