Things I Love Thursday: At the Movies

I’ve been working on catching up on my shows on the DVR.  We’re in need of switching out our DVR that’s been acting up, and unfortunately, when we switch out all my recorded shows will be lost.  Sad Panda.  So, I’ve been in a manic show-watching marathon and have finished up Gossip Girl, Grimm, Vampire […]


Pooltime Lime

So, last week I decided I’d leave my toes in Fear or Desire orange.  But, I wanted a change of pace from the bright summer colors I’ve been drawn to lately.  I needed something darker… So last week’s mani was Essie Sexy Divide.  And I’d forgotten how much I love this one.  It really is […]


Things I Love Thursday: Light-Filled Rooms

Recently, I’ve been feeling very frustrated about my home (see also number 3 on this list).  I feel so overwhelmed with the clutter and just sheer amount of “stuff” that it’s making me crazy.  We had a great team over to the house this week to check our house for energy efficiency and where we […]


Double Date

Saturday, we got invited to catch a movie with Eric’s friend and the friend’s wife. When he called and asked if we’d be up for a movie, my response “I am ALWAYS up for a movie!”  This couple goes to see a lot of movies, so I was glad when they offered up Savages as […]


Fifty Shades of the Fluffernutter Sandwich

  Betwixt and between reading Game of Thrones, I read the Fifty Shades series.  Again.  It’s the first time I’ve read them in their published form, I previously read them in their original form as, you guessed it, Twilight Fan Fiction.  While the story is good, entertaining, and full of lemons (those steamy scenes), I […]


Things I Love Thursday: Living Colorfully

It’s been a heckuva week, starting with last Thursday.  Just lots of the crazy going on, lots of emotional upheaval and yes, even tears.  I had to have a little come to Jesus meeting with myself on Tuesday.  Today?  Things are much better.  And a lot of that is just because of refocusing my attitude.  […]


My Sun and Stars

I just recently finished reading Game of Thrones, the first book in the series.  I’ve been wanting to watch the HBO series and was told by a good friend of mine that I really should read the book first.  So, I picked up the book at the beginning of April, right after finishing the new […]


Things I Love Thursday: Holiday Memories

I’m really loving my TILT posts.  They are a fun way to focus on what I’m currently loving (to borrow the name of one of my Pinterest boards) and feeling grateful for.  So, today, since it’s the day after Independence Day I thought I’d focus on the holiday and some of what it brought up […]


A Little Shopping Excursion

Yesterday I went and got my hair cut and brows waxed.  While I was getting my hair done, she also did an extra botanical hair treatment to help protect my hair through the summer months.  I always feel so good when I get my hair done!  Afterwards, I decided to do a little shopping since […]
