Disclaimer: For the purposes of this story, the gentleman in question’s name is Bill. Spoiler alert: it’s not actually Bill. Okay, people, strap in. A few things from my last post. I have not been doing well. My house has been a MESS, I haven’t really exercised since my 5K on August 11, I haven’t been to church in three weeks because quite frankly, I’ve … Continue reading Leaving it Behind – Literally
Alright, folks, so we’re just gonna dig right in here. You know how I wrote in my last post that there was a guy who was making me smile? Well, a week later, apparently I don’t make him smile. Or we’re not making each other smile. You get the point – no smiling happening anymore. We done. I have the tendency in life to find … Continue reading Goodbye Summer
I haven’t written in months. Literally, it’s been over a month since my last blog post. July must be the month because I’m pretty sure I didn’t blog last July either. But at least I still have my blog? Anyway, I’m writing now, and honestly I’m just going to start typing and see what comes out, considering I just looked at my 17 draft posts … Continue reading Thoughts As I’m Thinking Them
Woo hoo, a book post! I don’t do enough of these. I absolutely love watching booktube videos (a sub-section of the youtube community dedicated fully to book wonderfulness!). I would love to be more of a book blogger (s/o to The Drunk Quill), but I barely have time to shower, let alone read as much as I want, so future goals I guess. Anyway, I … Continue reading Retellathon TBR!
Oh. My. Good. Grief. That’s pretty much my four word reaction to all things Royal Wedding. As you all know from being alive in this the year of our Lord 2018, HRH Prince Henry (lots of middle names here) of Wales and Rachel Meghan Markle became the Duke & Duchess of Sussex this past Saturday May 19, 2018. And I was HERE. FOR. IT. Well….kind … Continue reading The Royal Wedding
Okay, so let me explain. Yes, I did give up on my reading challenge. But it’s not because I don’t want to read! In the almost four months of 2018, I have read seven books. Which honestly for me? That’s really good, I am really proud of myself. I went to book club in January & February, and read March’s book club book. But then … Continue reading I Gave Up on my Reading Challenge
I HAVE A NEW BATHROOM! Starting March 19, the tear down began, and a week later, it was finished! I want to mention that a family friend named Jim was the craftsman behind the project. He does amazing work, and there is NO WAY it would look half this good if I was left to my own devices. Before These pictures are actually after pictures of the … Continue reading Bathroom Reno!
So, based on the title of this post, you’ve guessed that I’ve had an interesting couple of weeks. Monday March 19 I had a 4:00pm meeting. One of those 4:00pm meetings. You know the ones…where you shut the door and next thing you know, you’re packing up boxes and being escorted out. For the longest time, I had always thought that getting fired was like a death sentence, … Continue reading Well, I Got Fired.
A few weeks ago, I watched this video: As a self-proclaimed romcom aficionado, I loved the video and how it broke down different parts of the films. It got me thinking about my own collection of romantic comedies and that I’ve always felt like they’ve had a slight contribution to my singleness because of the unrealistic expectations of love they present. So I’ve decided that … Continue reading The RomCom Project
So here I am, after a quite interesting week in the life. I can’t talk about why it was so interesting just yet, but let’s just say there are quite the stories to come. BUT I’m sitting here, watching Julie & Julia, with the absolute queen Meryl Streep playing one of the titular characters, Julia Child. In the movie, Streep’s character is a chef and on her … Continue reading “No Excuses, No Explanations”
