Lessons learned from tax time

April 16, 2014


Nobody likes taxes, well except for accountants and CPAs, since this time of year is their bread and butter. As the eternal optimists, I always try to find the positive in every experience, no matter how good or bad the experience is. I am super organized when it comes to my finances. I know to […]

It’s Peep time!

April 9, 2014


You probably know by now that I have a wicked sweet tooth. I especially love Peeps and pretzel M & Ms. This is my favorite time of year since the Easter Peeps are out in full force. These are my favorite Peeps. I wanted to show a picture of my Peep collection, plus my pretzel […]

Starting over and over and over

April 2, 2014


One of my favorite quotes from yoga class is: “It’s not how many times you fall, but how many times you get back up again.” We all fall in life; that is part of being human. I try to live a healthy lifestyle, exercising and eating right. That being said, I do love my sugar. […]

Stop and think

March 26, 2014


This week’s blog post was going to be about eating cookies, or rather my lack of willpower when it comes to cookies, but something happened that I just have to get off my chest. They say patience is a virtue. Unfortunately, it is not one of my virtues. I am a hyper person who can’t […]

The tale of green sneakers

March 19, 2014


I don’t know about you, but I tend to get too wrapped up in what is wrong in my life. I try to practice gratitude on a daily basis, but sometimes it gets away from me. I admit it; I envy people who have good jobs; I envy people who can take nice vacations; I […]

Another Facebook rant

March 5, 2014


I still have mixed feelings about social media. On one hand, I love it because I’ve met so many wonderful people from all over the world. On the other hand, it seems much easier for people to be annoying. Or is that I let them be annoying? Is this a chicken and egg conundrum? Enough […]

More snow!

February 19, 2014


Here is a picture of our backyard during the latest weekly snowstorm. . .No deep thoughts this week, just thinking about snow. Nothing else to say, but snow, snow and more snow! :) Photo is thanks to Mr. Ken, photographer extraordinaire.

Doing the opposite

February 12, 2014


So can you go from this: to this? The answer is yes! How so you may wonder? It’s all in how you workout. I love lifting heavy weights because I feel so strong. In an effort to mix things up, I am now doing a Barre rotation. What the heck is barre? Think graceful ballerina […]

How to watch the Super Bowl

February 5, 2014


So the quintessential American past time is upon us. I am not sure how I feel about the fact that Americans are most associated with sports, but I’ll let that go for now. I don’t like football. There I said it. What is the purpose of giant men (can we say 300 pounds of muscle?) […]

Slow down!

January 29, 2014


I am getting better at this mindfulness thing. Between my yoga, meditation and prayer, I am able to slow down sometimes. I still have a ways to go though. Sundays are my day of rest. I like to sleep late and just relax. Although for me, sleeping late means getting up at 6 am instead […]
