Selfie Sessions

Why do you take so many pics of yourself, Alicia? Isn’t that a sign of narcissism? Are you just looking for likes? Nope. Let me explain (with hopefully not a lot of words) Because. I. Want. To. 😝jkjk but, besides that…. Too many days are now spent in jammies or yoga pants, lacking human interactionContinue reading “Selfie Sessions”

Let Freedom Ring….or wear a 2piece

Two years ago I wrote a blog post with a plethora of bikini pictures (not trying to be a Kardashian, I was just feeling myself)…and it was one of the scariest things I have ever done.  But I don’t regret it.  Putting myself out here is still hard because, let’s be real, haters gonna hate!   But now IContinue reading “Let Freedom Ring….or wear a 2piece”

Change is in the air…..

Whew, this one turned out to be longer than intended.  It’s worth it (or I think it is), to hang in there…….take a bathroom break, do some stretches…..whatever you need to, but hang in there with me! 🙂 I really want to avoid the word “resolution” or any variation of “New Year’s resolution”.  I knowContinue reading “Change is in the air…..”

Sometimes and Always

Sometimes you sleep so hard (and didn’t have to get up to pee – YAY!), that you actually hit the 9 hour sleep mark and end up over sleeping a bit. Sometimes you wake up with the worst allergy headache (even though you have never dealt with allergies before) Sometimes your dog is a jerkContinue reading “Sometimes and Always”

A Pickled Awakening

Y’all, that woman I have been searching for….she opened her eyes a little tonight. She woke up and stretched a little. She saw the sun peaking through the blinds. And someday soon (very soon), she is going to get out of that cave, put on the most obnoxiously bright dress and step back out into the sunshine.

Late Night Laptop Talk

I’m just now shutting my laptop for the night and going to bed. A bed that has “half on” sheets because I have just been too tired to care if they are on right or at all. I have no Christmas decorations up AT ALL (for the first time in my entire life). And atContinue reading “Late Night Laptop Talk”

Fancy’s Swimsuit Edition…..Wearing Whatever the Flip I want……..

Well. Here goes…the Fancy Pants swimsuit edition is now posted. And I’m actually pretty proud and excited about it. Check out my fabulous swimsuit finds, how much I love the way they hug my body, some little girls that helped me face the fear of posting this, AND how very little I care what the internet thinks about it!

I’m cooler than you on Father’s Day…..

(I’ll get back to funny soon – there are some GREAT dating stories in store) I am cooler!  And I’ll tell you why in just a sec (and it’s not just because of how cute I was as a baby – look at that face!).  First, I have to say Happy Father’s day to allContinue reading “I’m cooler than you on Father’s Day…..”

Raw and Uncut…ex-boyfriends,triggers and hurts…..

I wasn’t going to say anything.  I knew what was happening and I knew how I was trying to handle it was not going to work.  But, I let too much “noise” get in my head and tell me that nobody wants to hear it. Or, that it’s been long enough that I should beContinue reading “Raw and Uncut…ex-boyfriends,triggers and hurts…..”
