The Post-Vacation Blues

My post-vacation blues are tropical teals and deep ocean blues and seaweed greens. Guys, I just spent the past week in Jamaica and I don’t want to be back. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I missed my family and my quiet bed (the resort’s beds were weirdly loud when trying to get in or [...]

Visiting the Nug

As you all know, about three-ish weeks ago, the kid brother graduated from college. (If you didn’t know, I blogged about it here.) He moved home the day after graduation and then the day after that he moved to Tennessee. It was a wild ride that I was extraordinarily glad I wasn’t on. He handled [...]

Peas Out, Cub Scout

Believe it or not, as you are reading this, I am out of the country. Yes, again. Peace out, USA. Two months short of a year since my last excursion outside of the US, I’m at it again, crossing borders.  This time I’m flying across the pond with a bit more luggage in tow. My [...]

Of Nature Walks, Part 2

Hi Guys! I hope you had a great week this week.  I did, for sure.  The weather here in NC has been absolutely incredible.  I’m talking mid-60s to almost 80 degrees (that’s Fahrenheit for all my non-American friends) and partly cloudy with these glorious breezes that have made it almost impossible to not keep every [...]

I’m Not Juke-ing With You

Hey Guys! In this week’s installment of “What crazy thing has Bex done now?” I bought a car! No, I’m not Juke-ing with you. I’ve cross[ed]over. I’m [hatch]back in a sporty vehicle. A sweet “Cayenne Red” 2017 Nissan Juke. Her name is Ladybug Lucy, Luce for short. We’re already having a blast together. We went [...]

Yoga and Fries

Wednesday night, I went to yoga and ate a double-patty hamburger and fries for dinner. Right now, I find it crazy that I would ever feel guilty for eating that hamburger and those fries because they’re “unhealthy”. Yes, they are. But you know what that’s called? That’s balance.  That’s the couple scoops of dairy-free ice [...]

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 [...]
