  butter my buns and call me a biscuit. it’s spring! for reals. not like 60 degree tease weather we had in December and January. This is now a real life thing. and it actually makes my eyes water with pure joy (or could also be the pollen count because i’m itchy AF). The only […]

Well this is awkward. Never thought I’d see the day where I’d begin to pay attention to this website and give it a long overdue bath. Not just a quick on the go sponge bath, but like a full bring on the bath bomb and bubble it up type of bath. BUT I DID IT. […]

Annnnnnddddd now breathe. Can my titles continue to be any longer? Oh why, yes, yes they can. Challenge: accepted. Sidenote: anyone else here love to create challenges or goals after the task of said challenge/goal has already been completed?

I have zero problem with change, but I’ve just been through so much that sometimes familiarity in my life is best. But this is also partially due to my […]

When you get sick for the umpteenth time in less than a month, let alone early summer, you realize that maybe your life has taken a turn for the worse and you should probably just casually walk in front of the first moving vehicle that is headed in your direction because the thought of being bedridden, […]

Holy cheese & rice. I decided to wear shorts today (75 degrees is definitely the new 90) and I am pretty sure I am still blind in my left eye due to alabaster leg pigment (apparently my right eye was suiting an eye patch at the time of exposure).  Move over Sean Patrick Flannery, this girl […]
