Weekend Freedom

Waking up on Saturday was glorious! It was the first taste of freedom! And the way I chose to celebrate was with paleo banana pancakes and bacon! If this is what eating paleo is like, I’m going to be just fine! The rest of Saturday, I allowed myself some freedom to enjoy some fair food. I tried to make better choices if I could (I … Continue reading Weekend Freedom

Whole30 day 25

Today was a lazy day. Nothing too spectacular in the food department, mostly a lot of eggs. Ginger and I went across the lake to the Mercer Slough to meet up with a couple friends this evening and walk around. It was a nice evening for a walk, but being there was difficult as the last time I was there was with my ex. It’s … Continue reading Whole30 day 25

Whole30 days 17 & 18

Yesterday and today have been about the same and since I forgot to post last night, I figured I would just combine them. Both days I’ve woken up with a clear head, although, admittedly, I’ve pretty much forced myself to go back to sleep for extra hours when I could have (should have?) gotten up. Oh well, it’s a holiday weekend, so I may as … Continue reading Whole30 days 17 & 18

WOD 7/25

We’ve had a pretty warm July for Seattle with temperatures in the high 70’s and 80’s for the past few weeks. I would be lying if I said I loved the constant sunshine and didn’t miss the rain. That is why I am a perfect candidate to live in this beautiful city. At any rate, yesterday was no exception with the temperature hitting 84 degrees … Continue reading WOD 7/25

Guess what?

Yeah, I’ve totally been a slacker on this thing! This is why I will never blog full-time…..I forget to blog! But, I’m still here, doing my thing, living life. And life is good, not without it’s ups and downs, but it’s a very full and happy life despite. My sister came for a visit two weekends ago and that was a lot of fun. We … Continue reading Guess what?

Happy Anniversary

Ginger and I celebrated our one year anniversary this past Thursday, complete with doggie cake and dog park time. It’s weird for me to think that I’ve only had her for 365 days when I can’t even really remember life before her. Watching her get so excited when I come home each day makes me love her that much more each day. Clearly, she wasn’t … Continue reading Happy Anniversary

All I want for Christmas is you…..

Thanksgiving is over and the Christmas playlist on Spotify has been created. I think I have about 10-12 hours of music thus far in it, so it’s basically all I listen to all day long. I’ve started putting together my list of gifts for those I love, and am now stressing about how to get them all purchased, shipped, wrapped, and delivered on time. Also, … Continue reading All I want for Christmas is you…..


This weekend had a shocking surprise. A surprise that I’m still not even sure I can articulate. A surprise that wasn’t all that happy. I have spent the last 4 months attempting to move on with my life after a relationship that I thought (and hoped) was going to be long-term ended abruptly. All in all, I’m proud of myself for coming as far as … Continue reading Shocked
