Lazy Day Legs and Dogs

Good Morning Readers! Round two of fitness videos with the worst lighting. Literally the worst, it’s just terrible. Not too much to add today except that I am feeling very sluggish, sleepy, and a little fluffy. All I really want to do is snuggle, and apparently my dog Gavin shares feels the same, as you […]

Dog-proofing your home during the holidays

Good morning ya’ll! Dogs, babies, and Christmas decorations do not go together. From burning candles, a giant evergreen covered in fragile baubles and even strings of food, to a kitchen with frosting and sprinkles on every surface. If you’re hosting, forget about the nice china and stemware. Sorry folks, we’re using solo cups this year! […]

Dreaming of a White Christmas

Inspiration for White Christmas decorations are more than just a white color pallet. A White Christmas is of course reminiscent of snow, so I like to think of it as bringing the outdoors in. This is an opportunity to decorate your home with things that celebrate nature and remind us of the holidays at the same time.

Picking a Theme for your Holiday Decor

Holiday decorating is so important to me. It gives me such a warm fuzzy feeling to see my little Santa Clause figurines, string lights, wreath, snowflakes, etc… twinkling at my when I’m hanging at home. I would bet a decent amount that I’m not the only one who feels this way about the holidays. I’d also bet, possibly more, that others like myself have large families with kids who ‘need’ lots and lots of presents, host events over the holidays, and totally stress over how to afford it all!

Feeling Overwhelmed; Make It End!!

Afternoon! Our first truly fall-day here in New England; cold, drizzly, generally bleak. It’s easy to forget that this is a large portion of the glorious season; cold and drizzle. It’s not all sunshine, sweaters, and apple cider, ya’ll. It’s easy to get stung by the seasonal depression bug during this time also, we wake […]

Morning Musings and the Aftermath of a Three-Day Juice Cleanse

Good morning all, Yet another morning spent lying in bed for 20 minutes after the initial flicker of wakefulness, denying that it’s time to get up. We’ve been having a lot of these. I also spend these minutes protecting my face as I was pretty decently head butted the other morning; my nose might be […]

Day #4: The reveal

It’s the morning after my first ever juice cleanse! I had a bad night and woke up too early. But THAT’S OK! Know why? Coffee creamer. I can honestly say this is the thing I missed most. And sandwiches. Wine. Breakfast. OK I missed a few things. Going to make some eggs and do a […]

Juice Cleanse Day #3

WOOHOO LAST DAY!! Wow, I never would have guessed that I could do this. It’s amazing how not-dying I feel. Again woke up with a headache that disappeared with coffee. Even felt like doing a little working out. Made myself a giant to-do list this morning, which is always helpful. Benny and I agreed last […]
