Okay - it wasn't Sunday... it was actually Thursday. The upper midwest was blasted with a storm the day after Christmas and I had a personal day to use by the end of the year (the whole use it or lose it policy is absolutely ridiculous, but I'll get to that in another post)... so … Continue reading Car Wash Sunday
The spirit of the christmas season is creeping up this year. My mom and dad, sister and her boyfriend, along with his daughter are coming over tonight to celebrate the holiday. The past few years, we have scaled down and made the season what it is supposed to be about.... family and memories. A few … Continue reading ’tis the season!
I did it!!! I enrolled in an online business course to start your own business!! After reading through some of the highlights, I'm not going to lie - I feel completely overwhelmed and underprepared! but...... I did it! They always say, you don't know until you try - well - here I am, I am … Continue reading I did it!! – er, ok, I’m starting to do it…..
I knew I should have listened to your advise [Flash back to February 2016] I knew better - and I knew I knew better. But you know what??? I did it anyway. I bought a new car. Not a 'new to me' car - an effing brand new car. Why?? I have no idea! Who was … Continue reading Thanks Dave Ramsey
I've been neglectful. Not on purpose and I am trying to get better at it. Plain and simple, work is getting busy, like really busy. I've been going in a bit early and staying a bit late. When I get home, I find the best way to calm myself after an over-stimulated day is to … Continue reading This crazy thing called life
What a weekend. My cousins were up this past week and wanted to go kayaking. Cool. Sounds like fun. We wake up early, make a tasty breakfast (thanks to the amazing fritter bread and wild rice sausage patties from the Clearwater truck stop / a must stop when traveling on I-94), load the kayaks and … Continue reading Natural Beauty and SOS Calls
I am currently on Day 22 of the 80 Day Obsession journey. So far, I really enjoy the workouts. I am still struggling with the timed nutrition. It seems that I am barely getting done eating one meal and I have to start on the next one.... there is SO MUCH FOOD! It is usually … Continue reading Quarter of the way There…..
I'll admit it - I am my own worst critic. I have always played the comparison game with other women I am around. My hips are too big, my stomach is too round, my skin isn't clear enough, my smile isn't big enough, my hair isn't thick and full, my clothes never look right, this … Continue reading 80 Day Obsession
I have a confession. I have always wanted a cute, quaint outdoor space. A couple years ago, I finally got my boyfriend (Tom) on board... and by 'on board' I mean that I had basically started ripping out the grass and laying out the concrete size... by the time he got home to 'discuss' it, … Continue reading This doesn’t suck
So, I am a slacker.... I know I have good intentions when I say I'm going to do something, for instance, sign up for a 10K in Fargo. So, to realize that the race is only 10 days away, I have come to terms with the fact that those 6+ miles will hurt and make … Continue reading YIKES!
I'm beginning to believe the theory that our phones are bugged and someone (Facebook) is listening to all our conversations. Just last week, my friend Melissa and I were at the gym and while we were walking out the guy there asked her about her No Bull shoes.... now, I have never searched for these … Continue reading Positive Changes
✔️ Seeing old friends ✔️ Beautiful sunny day ✔️ Bloody Mary's No better way to spend a Sunday funday.... now to relax the rest of the evening and take advantage of a day off tomorrow. Back to reality on Tuesday.
So THIS is happening. I've never liked my smile. My mouth is very small. My front teeth don't line up nicely. Pretty much all current photos of me I have a half-ass, closed-mouth smile. It doesn't help that my boyfriend and his children all have beautiful, straight teeth, big smiles. I feel like the ogre that … Continue reading Ugly Betty :D
I am a pretty basic person. My style can be described as casual... that is best case scenario. I like simple, classic pieces that are easy to wear and are versatile in their ability to go with anything. We can get into my clothing style (or lack thereof) later, today my post is about shoes.... … Continue reading Like walking on clouds
I have recently become obsessed (that may be a bit strong of a word, I mean, I'm going to go ape-shit crazy and stalk the couple or anything) with Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell... they are 100% #couplegoals! I stumbled across Dax's new podcast a while back... ok, stumbled is wrong... I saw something on … Continue reading My new crush!
I'm really into self-improvement lately. Podcasts... check! Audiobooks... check! My current choice of listening pleasure, The 5-Second Rule by Mel Robbins. This morning was my first attempt at her 5-4-3-2-1-GO advise... how did it go? you ask... It didn't. I talked myself out of it. I woke up with my alarm and said 5-4-3-I'm tired-I don't … Continue reading Every Day is New Beginning
Fargo Marathan Relay #1 in the books. 7 miles of some running and walking and 100% fun times. Got my t-shirt... and some shin splits... and good times.
My sister seems to talk me into the craziest adventures. It started with a 5K... then another 5K... then another. I am ok with this predicable back-and-forth as the end result is a t-shirt and a medal... WIN! This time, however, she talked me into a Ragnar... RAGNAR! In Snowmass, Colorado no less.... so not … Continue reading What Motivates You??
