5 things I’m loving right now

Love-FireThe home edition!

This weekend was a bit of a whirlwind. In truth, the past several weekends have been that way. Last night I got to come home and just enjoy my home and my space for a bit. I realized just how much there is to love and how grateful I am for…

  1. Turning on my tunes, drinking some Slam, and meal prepping like nobodies business!
  2. My own bathtub! Two, actually. I spent over three years without a bathtub and I’m so elated to be able to take baths whenever I want. It felt so good to sit and soak last night while drinking Rehydrate and Oasis to power down from a busy weekend.
  3. Having plenty of room to stretch out and do all sorts of self care. My neck was a little amp’d up, so I had to pull out all the stops to get it back in a good spot.
  4. How cozy, warm, inviting, and eclectic my place is. I, truly, couldn’t love it more.
  5. The fact that it’s all mine! :)

Confession Thursday

  1. Confession I’ve started missing doing these.
  2. I can never remember if Christmas is on the 25th or 26th. I know, I know.
  3. I just bought my first place and it’s SO much bigger than the apartment I’ve been in for three years that I sometimes find myself spinning in circles trying to remember where everything is. It seems like a mansion to me!
  4. I think I’m developing an addiction to crockpot cooking. It’s so gratifying to spend so little time prepping only to return home to a home cooked meal ready and waiting.
  5. I’m partly doing this again for my mom. Love you.

5 things I’m loving right now

  1. Love-FireMy mom and how well she takes care of me when I need a little help.
  2. Netflix streaming. I’m not always psyched on their limited offerings, but I still love it nonetheless.
  3. Having a sunny, warm weekend! After almost a month straight of rain, this past weekend was a nice change of pace. It’s finally feeling like summer!
  4. Old friends who pop back up in your life.
  5. Fresh flowers in my home. The smell of peonies is permeating everything!

Confession Thursday

  1. Confession If I’m ever in a spelling contest, the word itinerary is where I’ll fail. I can’t spell this word if my life depended on it. I’m just darned thankful WordPress autocorrected that for me.
  2. I’ve had a lot of conversations lately where I have a precise plan for what I’m going to say and how I’m going to say it in order to touch on everything and answer any questions someone might have only to be interrupted, usually with a question. This leads me to say, “If you’d let me finish, I was going to get there.” I can’t tell if the issue is that I’m overly loquacious, if I’m super thoughtful in how I communicate and that’s unappreciated, or if people are just rude and impatient. (Did the use of loquacious just answer my own question?)
  3. I don’t like wearing other people’s shoes. It totally creeps me out.
  4. I keep seeing these young girls all over social media discussing how ugly they are. I’m not sure if they’re just fishing for compliments or truly believe this about themselves. Either way, it makes me sad.
  5. I have a bad habit of losing silver hoop earrings. And not the cheapo kind, either. They just fall out of my ears without me noticing. It’s like they’re trying to escape.

Confession Thursday

  1. Confession I kinda miss doing this. (But doubt it’ll be a super regular thing, just FYI.)
  2. I HATE wearing strapless bras. My mom won’t buy anything that needs to be dry cleaned (that’s her breaking point). My breaking point is if an item requires a strapless bra. No joke. It could be the most amazing garment every created. If I can’t wear a normal bra with it, it’s out.
  3. 2015 has been, so far, the strangest year of my life – an odd blend of some of the hardest days I’ve ever experienced along with some of the most affirming and positive days I’ve ever experienced. All I can say is personal growth is at an all-time high at the moment.
  4. I think personal growth rocks the casbah. (I really have no idea what that saying means, but you get my point. I hope.)
  5. I think garden gnomes are hilarious. Hilarious in a, “Who in the world decided these suckers should be produced in the first place? How weird is that?” kind of way.  Not in a, “Aw, aren’t these so cute and funny?” kind of way. When I own a home with a yard, I plan on strategically positioning several of these around the yard. Please understand, these gnomes will be strictly for the purpose of irony and chuckles. I do not take garden gnomes seriously, nor should you!
  • About Me

    My mother is an encyclopedia of useless information (sorry, ma, but it's true) - no one can beat her at Trivial Pursuit. As I age, I become more like dear old mom everyday. I routinely tell people about resources, recipes, tips, tricks, or websites I've heard about, tried, live by, etc. until one of my clients urged me to start a blog. So here it is! My perpetual ramblings. I hope you find them useful and amusing. If you don't, you can either keep it to yourself or leave me a well constructed critique.

    I'm a former massage therapist, a freelance journalist, and a web information architect and UX designer. I enjoy yoga, the Bar Method, camping, reading, gardening, and spending time with my friends and loved ones. I live in Colorado.
