Taking a Break

Hi, folks. Just letting you know I will be taking a break from blogging for awhile. Get ready, because this is a sobering post.  My mom is currently under Hospice care. Her health has been in decline for some time, thanks to frontotemporal dementia. And now we’re at the end. In addition to the dementia,…

Half Marathon Training Weeks 6 & 7 and Self-Care Sunday

Guys, I ran 5.5 miles today as part of my half marathon training plan, and let me tell you: the chafe is real. Pro tip: don’t wear a thong on your long runs. Luckily, it’s Sunday, which means it’s time for my weekly “self-care Sunday” at home spa ritual. Basically, I love the spa, and…

Half Marathon Training Week 2 & Champagne Problems

Since we’re in the midst of a long weekend, I decided I was long overdue for a mani/pedi, so I slapped some paint on these old houses: They look good for a DIY job, huh? Except, PLOT TWIST: I went to a salon and got these done. It was a Groupon purchase, which, let me…

Half Marathon Training Week 1 & Upcoming Races

Runner Struggles: Runner’s Trots

Race Recap: Best Damn Race Orlando 10K 2018

So before I get into this race recap, let me start off by saying that I’m super tempted by the idea of geocaching, because I like the idea of finding buried treasure. And not-so-buried treasure. However, my hangup is that if I do it, and spend my valuable time in the outdoors looking for something,…

My Hobby Lobby Experience

So when I logged onto Squarespace, I was distracted by the ad that popped up on the homepage talking about how Keanu Reeves built his website with Squarespace. I was like, My ass Keanu Reeves built a website! then proceeded to watch two minutes and thirty-two seconds of Keanu sitting in front of a campfire, waxing…

Beauty Junk Round-Up: Maple Holistics Argan Oil Shampoo

Happy 2018! I feel like I’ve heard a lot of people lament about how 2017 was a crazy, hard year with everything going on in the world (just how they lamented 2016 was hard). I’ve got news for ya: it’s not gonna get any better. Things will still be rocky politically, and Kim Jong-Un and…
