Friday Feels

Hey! We made it through another week friends! For me, this week dragged a tiny bit, but I think that the darker nights and colder mornings are just getting to me. I’m craving that warmer weather, and hell, I’m not even a summer person. I figured in light of me re-starting this blog, I wouldContinue reading “Friday Feels”

Book Review (Round 1)

I would say that I’ve always enjoyed reading, but it wasn’t until my twenties where I could really dive into a book and get lost. I figured since I read quite a bit, it would be fun to give a quick review of each. Of course everybody’s interests and likes differ, but I always findContinue reading “Book Review (Round 1)”

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Brussels Sprouts might just be my favorite veggie. Throwing these suckers in the oven is so easy and quick. They make a great addition to any meal. I like them on the burnt side, that way they have an extra crunch. You can jazz these up in some ways too! Toss them in buffalo sauceContinue reading “Roasted Brussels Sprouts”

Drunk Elephant Review – Is it really worth the price?

After reading numerous reviews about Drunk Elephant, I decided to take the plunge and order a set of the Littles. The Littles package includes a travel bag filled with travel-sizes of their best and most popular products. This is a great way to test out the products and see what works for you before investingContinue reading “Drunk Elephant Review – Is it really worth the price?”

Who do I want to be vs. who I am?

When faced with this question, my initial reaction is to pause and think. Should there be two answers? Should the answer be the same for both? Is there a right or wrong response? Over the past couple of weeks I’ve truly taken a deep-dive into the unknown. My stable job has become stable-less, my onceContinue reading “Who do I want to be vs. who I am?”

Friday’s Five

This week truly dragged for me. The days seem to be longer and the sun is out for less. I’m ready for Spring already! But thankfully it’s Friday and I also have a three day weekend ahead. The beauty of working for a bank 🙂 Today I wanted to quickly share five podcasts I’ve beenContinue reading “Friday’s Five”

Slow Cooker Beef and Potato Stew

During the winter season, I try to use my slow cooker as much as I can. It’s just so easy to throw everything in and not have to worry about it til hours later. This recipe is EXACTLY that. You don’t even need to cook the meat beforehand! You literally toss everything in the crockpotContinue reading “Slow Cooker Beef and Potato Stew”

Friday’s Five

It’s my intention to religiously post about five things every Friday. (Hence the name, DUH.) Originally I was thinking five things that made me smile or happy throughout the week, but then realized that “hell, maybe I won’t always have five things to list?” So I decided to keep it simple and easy and basicallyContinue reading “Friday’s Five”

Why do I do this?

I can’t be the only one, right? Start something, never finish. Make a goal, never accomplish it. What a shitty feeling. And yet, I do this ALL THE TIME. It’s a vicious cycle of wanting to become a “better person” and never fully committing. Maybe if I air my so-called dirty laundry into the webContinue reading “Why do I do this?”
