IT’S THE BIG ONE-ZERO-ZERO

Today is a blog day, and it’s not just any blog day – it is the 100th blog day! 100 BLOGS I’ve written and posted 100 blogs – call me cynical, but I doubt there is anyone out there who can say that they’ve read all the blogs. (Except for myself, of course.) **Edit: Denise [...]

What’s Cookin’, Good Lookin’?

I’m going to be honest – I had planned on telling you guys about my discovery of the TV show Friends this week, but I didn’t write it this morning and since then I’ve changed my mind. Today’s blog is so late because I’ve been cooking with my mom all afternoon. (I don't have a [...]

Only Strong

My mentor at work gave me a really excellent book that I think everyone should consider reading. Stick with me here: StrengthsFinder 2.0 From Gallup. I know, I know. I know what you’re thinking: “A self-help book?? Seriously?” And yes and no. When I think of self-help books I think of those books telling you [...]

Psychos Anonymous: A One-Step Program

I had a rough day yesterday. Why? I couldn’t tell you what triggered it absolutely. Lack of sleep? Not eating enough?

How to spot a Gentleman: A letter to 18-year-old me (and some of my 20+-year-old friends)

Sorry, this is so late guys. I was busy looking for a gentleman on which to base my blog this week. KIDDING. I’m surrounded by plenty of wonderful gentlemen, one of whom is the real reason my blog is so late this week. The real reason I’m so late is that I spent the weekend [...]

Ready to Spring into the Outdoors

Happy Spring, Everyone! The first day of Spring was this week and I am SO ready for warmer weather. (It was also my dad’s birthday week – Happy Birthday, Dad!) Unfortunately, we didn’t really see much of that warm weather after last Sunday, so hopefully, it’s coming soon. Hopefully really soon, because I planted 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 [...]

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 [...]
