Thank you springtime for your beautiful blossoms and greenery, but summertime is here to shine! Why do we obsess over the weather? Well, I’m obsessing over 88 degrees in Virginia. Unbelievable. This Wisconsin girl loves the heat. Summer is on the brink of arrival whether you like it or not. What do you like or not like about the season? I don’t think we can be friends if you dislike summer! I like that I wear lighter and brighter clothing. I like farmers markets. I like that the days are longer. I like having glowing sun-kissed skin. I like beaches. I like everything about summer!
My muscles are soooooooo incredibly sore right now. I feel like such a wuss complaining about how much I’m hurting every time I get up from sitting or bending over to pick something up. This is the first week in a month I’ve consistently exercised. How can my body be this out of shape already?? What the EFF?!
Hello, Springtime! Hello, you ray of sunshine! I’m ecstatic to be writing to you from my new home! I feel as if my life is in bloom alongside the trees and flowers. Now that I’m a month moved into my home, I thought I would miss the excitement of being on the go. Settling down sounded BORING. To my surprise, I’m so much happier now that I’m a home owner. I love my house so much I can’t even stand it. I feel more secure knowing I have all the time in the world to enjoy it. It’s not like renting where you know it’s temporary.
Hey guys! I’m baaack in full swing! I apologize for taking the last couple of weeks off from the blog. I was insanely unmotivated after my trip from California. I caught a nasty chest cold for the second time in a month. I hardly had enough energy to go to work let alone exercise. I was in a crap mood, tired of the gloomy, cold days and dreading yet another house move!!!
Happy Sunday! I hope you are making the most of your weekend! I’m en route to California for the very first time!!! I’ve been dreaming of California since I was sixteen years old. As a teenager, I was madly obsessed with the television series The O.C. with Mischa Barton, Ben McKenzie, Rachel Bilson, Peter Gallagher, etc. Ask anyone who knew me then; I was the show’s biggest fan! I fantasized about the glamorous side of California. I was captivated by the beaches, the sunsets, the ocean, the palm trees, the mansions, the models, the cars, the country club way of life. I wanted to be Marissa Cooper aka Mischa Barton livin’ it up on a yacht or cruising along the coastline in my convertible. Sounds like fun right?!!
Hey! How’s it going? I’m feeling pretty bad for the Green Bay Packers. I’m watching this sad playoff game against the Atlanta Falcons. I’m blogging instead of watching because it’s just too painful to watch. So my house inspection went really well this past Friday! The house needs a few things fixed here and there, but nothing serious. What a relief. Let the countdown to closing day begin!
WOAH. I will be a homeowner next month! Life just got super real for me. I have mixed emotions about the whole thing! Of course, I’m HAPPY. I will have more living space and storage than I’ve ever had. I’m most excited about having complete privacy. I don’t have to worry about closing the blinds or worry about noisy neighbors stampeding through the apartment above mine. I can remodel, decorate, and do whatever I like because it’s my house!
And so I’m back in full swing from missing an entire week of workouts due to being sick. I’m so incredibly sore and hungry these days. My body is detoxing for sure from the sugary holidays. UGH. What a pain in my rear end to have to start all over to find my groove. There’s nothing more annoying than being majorly distracted from accomplishing my goals. UGH. I’m just super angry at sugar, and I despise it with all my being. Read more →
Happy 2017!!! I’m thrilled to start the new year with a new blog post to get motivated! I was completely useless last week due to a horrible cold I caught; sore throat and pounding headache. I felt so guilty taking time off from work and the gym, but I knew my body needed to rest to make a quicker recovery. While I was plopped on the couch, I came across an article, I’ll Never Follow A Paleo Diet, Because Bread. Naturally, as a Paleo enthusiast, the headline caught my attention. Nonsense I thought.

I hope you enjoyed your Christmas as much as I did!!! This holiday season is real quiet. It’s just my husband and me! We miss our family in WI and NJ very much and feel terrible we couldn’t make the trip to visit. Having just moved this past summer from WI to VA we thought it wise to stay put. People feel sorry for us because we are alone for the holiday’s, but the truth is we’ve grown used to it. My husband and I lived overseas for a few years, missing family get-togethers and such, we had no choice but to be grateful we had a family to miss!
