Writings on the wall….or mirror :-)

    I publicly declared yesterday that I was taking a hiatus from Facebook for the month of June.  Sure, it may not seem like a big deal to most.  But for someone who could basically work for Facebook as much time as I spend on there, this was a pretty big declaration indeed.  AsContinue reading “Writings on the wall….or mirror :-)”

The Chemical Life

  Well.  It has happened.  I have entered the world of chemicals.  I always thought I would not ever need them or that I would just embrace aging and accept that things change as you get older.  That’s what I thought until I met gravity.  And age.  Now, all bets are off.  The only thingContinue reading “The Chemical Life”

When big girls go swimming….and celebrate Memorial Day alone

I can’t believe I am about to type this. But, I have had too much time off this weekend. I NEED to go back to work. I actually should’ve worked today but chose a “mental health day” of crafting and mindless Netflix watching instead. I also forced myself to put on a swimsuit and visitContinue reading “When big girls go swimming….and celebrate Memorial Day alone”

Stubbornness Counts

One of my favorite little surprises in my new little book was this page that said “Stubbornness Counts”. I chuckled when I first read it. I am one of the most stubborn people I know. Hands down it is in the top three characteristics that make up “Alicia Fancy Pants”. And it is quite possiblyContinue reading “Stubbornness Counts”

Laughter in the Busy Basket

I had no idea when I planned to blog everyday for the next 30 days in an effort to “do something different” and stick with it, that my busy basket would all of the sudden be filled to the rim!  I’m swamped at work more than ever.  I am moving to a new place thisContinue reading “Laughter in the Busy Basket”

Girl things

  I am honestly missing coffee and not in clear thinking land yet today.  So, all I have for you is some completely random thoughts about being a girl.  Sorry guys (even though it might give you some insight into us ladies!). Is it better to have short stubby nails and paint them or tryContinue reading “Girl things”

The maxi pad and the doggy diaper (another oldie but goodie)

I know!  I cheated again!  BUT, I was worried with a busy weekend and the potential of being gone to my niece’s state ball tournament and getting caught up in that excitement that I would fail to post 🙂 Cause, it’s not hard to distract me ya know!  Anyway, sure do miss this dog andContinue reading “The maxi pad and the doggy diaper (another oldie but goodie)”

Oldie but Goodie: It’s hard NOT to be happy…

Ok, maybe this is a bit of cheating in completing my “write/post every day for 30 days” declaration…..but, never hurts to read back over things, see how far you’ve come, or how much wiser you were than you realized, etc.  Plus, this was on the old blog and as I was reading through some ofContinue reading “Oldie but Goodie: It’s hard NOT to be happy…”

Single Girl Super Bowl Observations

I just thought i would share observations of the super bowl from a single girl perspective. Ok, maybe the observations aren’t just because I am single but I doubt that any of these points will be brought up by any sports anchors 🙂 1. I barely know all the ins and outs of football. ButContinue reading “Single Girl Super Bowl Observations”
