Hello partners, are your holiday plans falling into place? I’ve been kind of swamped trying to figure out holiday budgets, gifts and other spending, not to mention blogging and everything else. So I kind of just want to take a post to sort of blah out and make sure yall don’t think I’m some kind of big fancy blogger now since my last three posts … Continue reading Rounding Down 2017
Hello readers, have you been bitten by the travel bug? This post contains affiliate links. As I mentioned in my last post, I was lucky enough to hitch a ride for a last minute trip to Las Vegas with Julie a few weeks ago. Last minute for me anyway. I’m sure she’ll be blogging about it with much better pictures, so follow her or I’ll … Continue reading Travel Tips!
Hurricane Irma was an incredibly intense and large storm that broke all kinds of records. Some people may envy the year-long warm weather and sunshine of tropical regions, but it does have a price. I’ve lived in Florida all my life and have dealt with my fair share of hurricanes, but this is the first time that I’ve ever went 3 days without power. And … Continue reading Hurricane Irma
This past weekend was Earth Day and thousands marched for science. One of the celebrations in my neck of the woods was a free concert at Williams Park. Williams Park is actually where I attended an event raising awareness for the criminalization of homelessness a couple of years ago. It’s a small place compared to other parks in the area, but right in the middle … Continue reading St. Pete Earth Day
Since one of my best pals had her first baby– plus general adulting– it can be tough to get away for some girl time. So it was decided that we should at least have a lunch every month. I got to choose the venue this weekend since it’s my birthday month. And while the girls love a certain chain restaurant, I need variety. I chose … Continue reading Happy Birthday to Me!
One of the great things about blogging is seeing people from all over the globe. So I’m sorry that this post is going to be very United States-centered! However, at least here in the U.S., there’s a narrative comparing other leaders or candidates to our current president, so perhaps you can relate. I’ve been raised to follow politics through pop culture or comedy programs, but other … Continue reading Engage
Oh my, I don’t know why itsmudges would tag me for for a travel meme, but I do appreciate it! I just haven’t traveled in 10 years, haha. Well, traveled any place more than like, an hour away. As cool as bloggers’ photos look and how amazing it must be, I don’t get that feeling of, “I must go there!” that you sojourners must. Not that I’ve no interest … Continue reading Travel Tag
If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll have seen the newest addition to our household- a little cat named Charlie! My brother took his cat after his wedding, and after taking care of T for 2 years, essentially since he was kitten, I obviously miss him dearly. But I always knew it was a possibility and is perhaps just something better to acknowledge that is out of … Continue reading What I Learned: Cat Adoption
I’ve been blogging about my brother’s wedding this summer, and if you’ve been following me this whole time, I’ll try to make this the last post about it! It’s just that there’s a few reasons I’ve been enthralled: I’ve never been to a wedding, I’ve never been involved, it’s for someone with whom I’m quite close, and I’ve never been that interested in them before, … Continue reading What I Learned: Weddings Edition
Long before Pokemon Go got me outside on my phone, geocaching got me exploring and searching for hidden gems in my own backyard. If you haven’t heard of geocaching, check out this post I wrote for For Vanity’s Sake last year. Basically, players hide “caches” and post GPS coordinates for others to find. Geocaches can come in all sorts of shapes, sizes and hiding difficulty. Some are … Continue reading Favorite Geocaching Locations
