See ya in a week!!!

Wednesday, March 21, 2012


I really should be packing right now. I leave in less then two days for a week in cuba.

Sort of torn about going...can't wait ...but also life is pretty wicked and I have a bunch I would like to get done here, but yeah, I think I can handle a week on the beach with nothing but a stack of books and unlimited drinks. 

love love love playing family feud on my phone. love it. 

I think its also making me smarter. 

Name five famous boxers?


Its having to know fact without GOOGLE. say wha?

I was playing the other day and sort of got a complex...the question was name 6 six things men like to be small on a woman

and one of the answers was butt. 

I would like CHALLENGE family feud. 

I think feet was a much better answer. 



honestly there is a ton of awesomeness happening but I can't really talk about it yet because its not common knowledge and ya know....

there be internet creepers and all. 


but heres what I say to you...

start your own blogs! 

let me hear your voice. its only fair. 

I've been debating starting a personal blog. 

guh. I don't even want to get into it. 

I started a list of 25 things I have learned in the last 25 years and I think I got about 5 things on it but maybe I will post it anyway and twenty of those things can be don't start a blog you don't really have the time for. 

speaking of time management I read something from cup of joe that has been playing over and over in my head lately. 

instead of saying "I don't have time for _____" replace it with "its not a priority to _____" ...

Its not a priority to take my clothes to the dry cleaners. 

its not a priority to reorganize the pantry. 

easy right?


things like ..

Its not a priority to go home and make a healthy dinner..

or its not a priority to get the proper vaccinations before going on my trip...

thats harder to stomach. 

give it a try! 

sometimes I think we all need to remind ourselves to live your life without thinking about what the internet will think of it.

instagram cheat sheet

so, lately I have been SUPER addicted to instagram. you feeling me here people? its so good! 

The best social network, imho. Just beautiful photos, snap shots of peoples lives all over the drunk bar pictures, ugly baby pictures (I'm not trying to be mean here I swear, but some people, mostly people from Lindsay, should just never have babies together) or the other garbage that goes along with facebook. 

Instagram is awesome and I came across this sort of 'how to' so if your new to instagram like me, it could be very helpful! 

in other iphone news...whats your favorite apps? best camera/editing/filter/frame apps? any organization ones you swear by? games? (i've also become fairly addicted to the family feud game) 

Hey so now you can Follow my blog with Bloglovin which is pretty rad!

things that are making me happy right now

goat cheese, lukewarm tea, tulips, sleepy morning kisses, watching this, re-organizing my files at work, ranch corn nuts, library books, anything peanut butter and chocolate flavored, leaving the window open all night, stretching, being excited about learning, birthday coupons, tzatziki.

I will stop apologizing soon and get back to regular blogging but for now here is just a few random thoughts.

-watering my plants and watching them grow and bloom gives me a lot of joy. I've even tried to buy fresh flowers for the apartment on fridays so I can enjoy them when I am home on the weekend and throughout the week.

-Its frustrating to be turned away from government programs that only help people who aren't even helping themselves.

-P has been training full time for his new job as a post man. I am beyond proud of him and we are both so happy to have something secure and perfectly suited to him. He has to be at work at 7am (awake by 5:30am) so we are going to bed SO much earlier ..usually around 9pm. what a difference! I usually read for a bit before I'm able to fall asleep but I hope to get my sleep schedule turned around so I can wake up with him and be more productive in the mornings before work.

-meal planning. again, what a difference! it saves us from BBM'ing all afternoon about what we want to eat and be more efficient about grocery shopping. Its also great because I'm able to start meals in the morning (in the crock pot or marinating) and when he gets home its easy to finish and be on the table soon after I get home. Before we would plan a meal in the afternoon then go to the grocery store when I got home, and by the time we cooked and got it to the table it would be like 7-8pm. with our new sleep schedule it just didn't work out!

- new day planner. I loooooove me a good day planner and this one I just got is great. it has a month at a glance calendar page which is great for long term planning and big spaces for each week at a glance page so I can put in all my To Do's. love love love a good planner.
Also side note. I ordered a black one through work but they messed up the order and sent me a coral one which looked gross on the website but is beautiful in real life. good mistake staples!

- I need to order film for my Polaroid camera.

- I'm now an iphone user. yay!

- I've reduced my pilates to one night a week instead of two. I'm still going to try and get some exercise twice a week though.

have a wonderful week.

I'm sorry. things are CRAZY around here. i have impending deadlines at work. personal life commitments. future life goals to start accomplishing TODAY. and well, trying to balance all that with a healthy level of 'relaxing' and just generally trying not to blow up.

things will return to normal soon. or at least I hope they will. in the meantime the internet will survive without me.
