The Blogfather: A Post You Can’t Refuse

But, now you come to me and you say: "Blogger Bex, give me a new post." But you don't ask with respect. You don't offer friendship. You don't even think to call me Blogfather. Instead, you come into my house on the day my blog is to be posted, and you uh ask me to [...]

SPORTS, BRUH

Happy Super Bowl Sunday, people! Will I be watching? Probably not consistently, but it’ll likely be on the TV at some point. Anyway, in the spirit of Super Bowl LII, I’m going to tell you all about my sports-related adventures this week. I tried two new sports this week, one significantly more successful than the [...]

Best Nine

Happy New Year’s Eve, everyone!  Today’s blog is going to be a little bit short, not for a lack of material, but because I’m simultaneously getting ready to go out for some NYE celebrations with friends but wanted to still get this posted on my regular Sunday post day. There has been this “Best Nine [...]

Totally Drool-Worthy

This week I took a one-day adventure with Thomas up to Asheville. I found it incredible that he’s lived in North Carolina his entire life and hasn’t been to the historic home yet. I, on the other hand, haven't seen the Biltmore decorated for Christmas, which is on my Winter bucket list. So, like we [...]

To Choose or Not To Choose

I’ve been thinking a lot about choice lately. Our ability “to select freely and after consideration,” as defined by the Merriam-Webster's dictionary. Life is literally a giant Choose-Your-Own-Adventure.We face millions of choices every day.  Some small, some large.  Do I get out of bed and put on pants and go interact with the rest of [...]

Overthink.  Overthank.  Overthunk.

If there is one thing I definitely do well, it’s think.  My brain works about 600 times faster than the rest of my body at all times.  Usually, this leads to embarrassing situations where I mash words together, freeze up entirely because my brain and mouth refuse to work in tandem, or sometimes can’t sleep [...]

A  Spooktacular Weekend

Happy Halloweek, everyone!  The long-awaited holiday is FINALLY here. Time to eat candy until your stomach hurts, dress up, and do the real spooky spooky stuff.  (I apologize to those who read last week’s blog and were a little too creeped out.  I promise it wasn’t a real story, just my overactive imagination.)  I used [...]

I’ll put a Spell on you

So, we’re halfway through October and I’ve done almost an entire Fall’s worth of activities.  Instead of boring you with an entire encyclopedia of Falltivities, I’ll put a spell on you and spell it out. 😉 An acrostic October Poem (with explanations) O – Out in the CornWhat can be more fall than a corn [...]

Alex Morgan and Marta and More – Oh My!

So, you remember a while back when I wrote that post about If you give a girl a soccer ball?  Well, this past week I got to see firsthand how soccer impacts other young girls and women and it was absolutely incredible. My friend Jordan and I took a trip up to Raleigh, NC (technically [...]
