no rest for the weary, y’all.

i know i’m cursing a lot lately. i think i’m just getting more comfortable here and worrying less what my mom and Spy think. not that they don’t know how i speak in real life OR ever even read this. that said, about this post. i am a big, big lister. i always make to-do […]

2015: goals are the new resolutions

(photo: pixgood.com) spoiler alert: this is not about actually running and has nothing to do with a Dixie Chicks song. or kittens. sorry. yesterday morning, i hunkered down for the very important work of reading my new month/new year horoscopes. this takes some dedication, y’all. and about 3 large cups of coffee, apparently. it’s a […]

my 2014: part 3

(photo: cats-pictures.org via Grimafust Photo) wow. 10 hours in a car sure gives you a lot of time to think. we just wrapped up the annual holiday pilgrimage up to Richmond to see family and friends. as usual, it was too short and we didn’t get to see everyone we wanted to. but the time […]

my 2014: part 2

(photo: cats-pictures.org via Grimafust Photo) digging in to my second set of Anuschka’s questions today. i really love this process of reflecting on the past year and getting ready for the new one. i think it’s so important to get your head straight for the start of a new year. at least if you start […]

my 2014: part 1

 (photo: cats-pictures.org via Grimafust Photo) so lately, as i was thinking about the last few days of the year and what/when i would post, i happened to come across this post on Into Mind with 50 questions “to help you reflect, appreciate and get excited for 2015.” it seemed perfect for a series of posts (nobody […]

Blogtober14: who’d play me in a movie

wow. putting this together has brought up some interesting things! i’ve always, always thought Ashley Judd would play me in the amazing movie of my life. we are soul sisters in the way that Reese Witherspoon and i would total besties IRL. but Reese is way too blonde. sorry. Ashley’s down to earth. smart. Southern. Liberal. […]

Friday favorites + Blogtober14 catch-ups

well this was inevitable. so much blogging, so little time. i fell behind on the #Blogtober14 prompts. again. but lucky for me (and you!), i think i can wrap up yesterday’s, today’s (since they’re both kind of about favorite things) and my semi-usual Friday favorites in one neat little package here. so overachieving of me, huh? don’t get […]

Blogtober14: my pet peeves

phoning it in a bit tonight, y’all. i am exhausted and have just about hit my wall with these posts. serious, giant YAY!! to everyone who’s still hangin’ tough and knockin’ ’em out every damn day. 9 more to go, people! keep it up! and now, in no particular order, i present my completely-off-the-top-of-my-head laundry […]

Blogtober14: my biggest fear

okay, so aside from the recurring visions i’m having about somehow contracting Ebola while Spy is in Europe and then having to be separated from Miss Girl until he can get here and how totally. effing. traumatic. the whole thing would be, i’m not afraid of that much stuff. and just so you know, i’m […]
