Well, sorry about that extremely negative brain dump post yesterday.

I generally think that stewing… Continue reading A post bad day good list
Just jumping on quick before I dive into an afternoon of work. I took the morning off to get a haircut and color. I might be weird, but I hate getting my hair done. I really do not enjoy it at all. It takes too long, it's boring, I find sitting next to the stylist… Continue reading Haircut + Documentaries
some fresh air for one of our tiny furry friends ❤ Last night I was in the kitchen quickly browning some taco meat before swim practice, and the nightly local news came on. In the first 30 seconds, they announced the top 3 stories for the evening. They were: 1) a heart-wrenching report of a… Continue reading A Good List
I have been wanting to share this for a few days now. It's something I got in an email last week and it really made an impact on me!

"Your first thought in the morning should be "thank you". You can choose whatever you want for the second." We definitely should be saying "thank you" every morning. God (or whatever/whoever you personally believe in) has granted us another day to be alive!!!! That is pretty awesome and amazing. Today is Thursday. I like Thursdays.… Continue reading Misc.

OKAY Wisco weather, very funny. Today I woke up to a real temperature of -6 and my iphone cheerfully informed me that the wind chill was -20. AND, this time, it is also snowing. How can it even snow when it's that cold?? I thought that was like, a meteorological impossibility. Ah, well. There is… Continue reading Saturday attitude and gratitude 🙂
1- Finally getting my Christmas decorations taken down!! I love Christmas so much, but there does come a point when I'm like, okay, it is OVER. Could the magic Christmas fairy please come in and just remove everything now?? 🙂 Since we we left for vacation right after New Year's, I didn't have a chance… Continue reading 5 Good Things
I love collecting quotes. In fact, I need to come up with a better system for saving them. I have some in my "notebook", some are in an email folder, some saved on Instagram, others I never do save and end up losing.... 3 that I'm loving this week: 1. "As we express our gratitude,… Continue reading Three Things Thursday + Lights!
