On March

March 31, 2014

March was a bit challenging. There were some really great moments, and then some really low moments. All in all, though, it’s one I can look back on and be happy with. It was just one of those slow, busy, tiring, enjoyable months. The highlights of my month were participating in Run or Dye, meeting Lisa, […]

Five For Friday (v. 32)

March 28, 2014

1) I joined a new dating website. Sorta. It’s called HowAboutWe.com. Has anyone heard of it? It’s touted as the “offline dating site” where people submit date ideas and if the date and/or person seems interesting to you, you tell them you are “intrigued.” I don’t know what happens from there because it’s not a […]

March 26, 2014

I saw this post on Cassie’s blog a few weeks ago and I loved the idea behind it, so, of course, I went over to Christy’s blog, where this link-up originated. I was so drawn to this concept. I mean, is anyone with me? Does anyone else have such a hard time talking about the things […]

When Life Gets Overwhelming

March 24, 2014

So I took a break from blogging last week. It feels so narcissistic to announce something like that, but well, I have a blog that I use to talk about my crazy exciting (#sarcasm) life. So, I’m already slightly narcissistic anyway. I digress. I took a break. I took a break because I was feeling […]

Five For Friday (v. 31)

March 14, 2014

1) For the past three weeks, I’ve been having a smoothie for breakfast and I think I can safely say I enjoy smoothies now! I’ve never been a huge fan, because they either had too many fruit bits swirling around (fruit bits make me gag… this is also why I don’t really love yogurt) or […]

February Budget Review

March 7, 2014

February was a fairly good month for me, financially. Getting my tax refund helped immensely, because I was able to pay off my credit cards in full so one huge debt-related monkey is off my back. I feel so relieved and happy when I think about the fact that I don’t have to shovel huge […]

February Reads

March 6, 2014

It’s time to recap what I read in February. I read another six books this month, bringing my total to 12. I need to pick up the pace a little to reach my goal of reading 75 books, but I’m doing okay. This month, my favorite book was The Husband’s Secret and my least favorite […]
