Back to my roots

I have been missing my girlfriends, mum & co-workers a lot lately. My heart aches when I don’t get to see the gems in my life. So I packed the car up & Roman & I made our way to SLC for a few days. I feel like I am on vacation — yet I’m sitting here enjoying a cup of joe at my old desk.

I know I say it a lot, and to some it may be too much, but the blessings in my life never cease to amaze me. All I can say is I genuinely wish I could make sure everyone felt the same about their life. But sometimes, it’s just not that easy.

Happy Monday beautiful, shine on.

In the city

 

A New Day

Last night I felt like I was going to rip someones head off. So I was really unproductive while I escaped in the bath tub because I was being an evil bitch & needed to have a moment. And that I did. But, today is a new day & that is the beauty in life. So I turned it around, faked it till I made it, & had an awesome day.

After a successful day of training at work I went to Shannons. I  was able to spend time with she and the girls, Taylor & Tanner, as well as Chris & Charlie. Before I knew it I had a happy belly, snorts in between laughter & only 30 minutes before I planned on being in bed. So instead of getting all sorts of crazy from moving anxiety, I decided to keep calm & spend some time with some of the people I love – And it was so nice.

Sometimes it’s a sign when you have a big project but keep putting it off for things like dates with a bag of York Mints in bed with Ellie Goulding turned up really loud (that was last nights excuse, betcha’ never heard that one before). A sign that is trying to say, ‘Stop being a tight ass & breathe. And have one more mint. Oh, & get OUT of the house for gods sake.’

I don’t know what I would do without all of the strong, positive, uplifting people in this little village of mine. Or all of the candy from my stocking. Needless to say, I feel refreshed & so not evil. I’m going to go plan my outfit for tomorrow like I used to every night from 7-11th grade (Senior year = Nobody cares, just get me the hell out of here), and go to sleep! It feels good to have adult responsibilities & child-like guilty pleasures.

Back To Reality

After a truly perfect Christmas I am back in the office for a week full of training new recruiters & catching up on ‘to do’s’. It’s nice to say that after a long weekend it’s not so bad coming back to work. That’s what happens when you love your job. I hope you all had an amazing Holiday weekend, I can’t wait to see pictures & hear all about the time spent with your loved ones. This week I will be working on a couple of things, one of them is getting Alans work on my page. He is an amazing photographer and I want to share his work with all of you. Until I get some time to do that between packing etc. I will give you this link  that will take you to his blog. Enjoy your day my loves! XOXO 

[Glasses, jeans, & shirt all from a favorite local shop of mine called Urban Blues]

Ps. These two are my favorite. This is why I love my job…

I Recommend..

My writers block from hell is no longer in the house!!!! Hopefully, some of you can relate to that awful feeling when you feel like you can barely even write a full sentence. It’s one of my least favorite things in the world. But it is the best when it goes away and you realize, ‘OH MY GOD, I’m NOT dyslexic!!!!!!’ (not that being dyslexic is a ‘bad’ thing, so I am not trying to offend anyone.)

I went to Kerry & Rogers after work to snuggle with my boo boo Kerry after her surgery. We had homemade lasagna for dinner that was absolutely delicious. We watched discovery channel & ‘Planet Earth’ and I highly recommend watching Planet Earth. Anyway, Milton needed some lovins as well..

I have a good doggy-nephew. By the way, it’s FRIDAY!! Smile, laugh, hug a stranger, smooch your mum/dad, get a running start & jump in the arms of the love of your life, and make time to snuggle with your best friends. Life is good. Sweet sleeps gorgeous, can’t wait to chat tomorrow. A draft is patiently sitting in my ‘draft-box’ about what I want to be ‘when I grow up’. I have a good feeling about it. Ps. I only 3 more sleeps until I get to see my handsome man. Ciao for now sweets, XOXO

Today I Am Loving…

This man bouquet. Every man would love this, I guarantee it. I’m ready for my lady bouquet, which would entail bubbly, lipstick, makeup brushes, & whatever else. (Not tampons. We can take care of that. Thanks though)

These bite sized pieces of baked brie. I was raised in a home where garlic & brie are a favorite, so I am all about these.

This man, for reminding me that sometimes you just have to jump and know that someone will catch you… And for being the one I can trust enough to do so. (Oh & for loving me even though I’m crazy) I love you so much.

This loft bed with a built in closet underneath. I love how simple it is, and the organization is awesome. I can’t stand childrens bedrooms with toys & what not just laying there waiting until you roll your ankle on them or puncture your foot.

This look

This woman! 83-years-old Bette Calman is living proof that the ancient art of yoga can do wonders on the human body. Bette Calman has been practicing and teaching yoga for the last 40 years and, although other people her age can hardly move anymore, she can pool of difficult yoga moves that put teenagers to shame. She can execute the “peacock” a difficult position in which the body is held horizontally, using only the power of the arms,  the “bridge”, “lotus” and can stand on her head with unnatural ease. Asked when she is going to retire, Calman said ‘You’re never too old. The body is a remarkable instrument. ‘It can stretch and stretch, and get better all the time. Forget age’ Ms Bette Calman teaches up to 11 classes every week, in Williamstown, Australia, teaching others the remarkable effects of yoga.

Because she could probably kick my ass.

Getting seconds at our work luncheon (because I can)

Savers providing me with an oversized sweater that I can’t get enough of. It probably came from a 90 year olds closet, but sweaters don’t require background checks. As long as they can mingle with my Litas & non-traditional Christmas nails, we’re fine.

My amazing grandma. I love her everyday, but especially when she sends me to work with airborne, crackers, & detailed instructions for nursing a cold/inversion-rebellion. She also knew exactly where my leg warmers were this morning when I was frantically trying to find them before work. ‘What would you do without me?’ Well grandma, I don’t have a clue.

So there are a few of my favorite things. What are you loving today?
