School got me like…whoa

School got me like…whoa

But, for real…whoa. When I say that I’ve been in college for a long time, I’m not exaggerating.  I’ve been enrolled in college courses for, what will be, this month, 16 years.  You’ve read that right, sixteen years.  I haven’t graduated with any degree yet, […]

Stuffed Mushrooms

Stuffed Mushrooms

I get cravings for things that I really like to eat, but don’t have a clue how to make. Before, when I didn’t care about what I was eating, I would go out and eat whatever, however it had been prepared. Now that I’m a […]

Testing, testing…is this thing on?!?

Testing, testing…is this thing on?!?

Holy shit.  Can I just tell you what an ordeal it has been to transfer my followers to my new site?  It’s literally been months since I started this process.  Finally, tonight, the issue was solved.  I don’t know what that issue was, but it’s fixed!!!  I can reach you!!  Hi Friends!!!

I’ve been a little busy with life.  Okay, most people wouldn’t think it’s busy, but I feel busy.  I’ve been volunteering, working out at least four days a week, eating (mostly) clean, taking my vitimins AND doing meal prep.  I know!!  I can’t believe it either!  I must be doing something right because as of today I am down 19.2lbs!!  Squeeeeeeeee!!!!

19.2lbs

I didn’t have a blog ready to post so this will be short, but I’m soo happy to be back…again.  xoxo

Weighing in on Weighing In

Weighing in on Weighing In

Why is it when you start losing weight, everyone becomes an expert on your health?  It’s funny, really.  My favorite bit of advice is “don’t lose it too fast, or you’ll gain it all back”.   Losing weight fast hasn’t ever been a problem for me, […]

Sometimes you just need some Lynyrd Skynyrd in your life

Sometimes you just need some Lynyrd Skynyrd in your life

It’s Saturday, so Tuesday’s Gone for real. Tuesday was when this site was supposed to be up and active. I missed my self imposed deadline, fuck. I’m in the office and trying desperately to finish working on this site and tweaking. I’m so critical of […]

Big things.  Good stuff.

Big things. Good stuff.

So…a few changes.  I upgraded my site to a theme that I could customize.  I changed my host from WordPress to FatCow.  I’ve been working with FatCow as my premier hosting service for eight years now.  I love them.  They’re 100% powered by wind energy.  When I break the server I can call in or chat 24/7.  There is always someone there to assist me.  Their staff is knowledgable AND helpful.  I can’t say enough good things about the people at FatCow.  If you’re looking for some kick ass hosting, then check them out here.

As far as WordPress themes go I can’s say enough nice things about the folks over at Themeum.  They are so talented.  Everything is smooth and elegantly designed.  Their code is easy to follow and manipulate.  I love working with their themes AND some, like the one I’m using (Prolog), are FREE.  That’s right, it’s not going to cost you a dime.

You know how I like to hoard my posts, so I’ve got a few new ones waiting for me to hit that dreaded Publish button.  I’ve been keeping up with all of you as well.  Be sure to check out Fatty McCupcakes‘ new adventure over at Shopper Lottie.  This broad is a fucking hoot!  She always cracks me up.  Have a boner for lists?  Me too!  Head over to How to Get Things Done in Ten Ways.  Her blog is extra adorbs.  You’ll be hooked!

I needed a haircut.  My hair actually made it down to my waist (in the back..it’s never going to make is that far over my boobs in the front).  I left Chicago and the best.damn.stylist.ever, MLC.  Since I’m neurotic, it’s been slow going with my new stylist Katherine.  As in, I’ve been in Texas for almost two years and I had only had her trim my hair twice.  It’s totally me it’s not her.  After she corrected the awful bleach job that happened when I decided to throw caution to the wind, she has my officially gained my trust.  She can do whatever she wants.  You can read more about my hair drama here.

 

I’ve slowly been coming out of the blogger closet.  I came out to family and Instagram first (I’m pretty sure that no one on Instagram looks at my site though) and then friends.  I think I’m ready to share the news on Facebook.  Ha!  I’m ready to be Facebook official with my blog!  Fuck!  Now it’s serious.  I mean, not that serious.  I haven’t done it yet, but I’m close, like I’m in a complicated relationship with my blog.  Ha!

Until then, I have dreaded Publish buttons to press.  Eeeeek!!!

I can’t be trusted with cookies

I have a problem.  I love cookies (and cakes (and pies)).  Oh for fucks sake, and brownies. Sugar.  Shit.! I love sugar!! I’m had a cookie craving all week.  I would specifically appreciate some girl scout cookies, but it’s not that time of year.  Yes, […]
