Hi babes! I feel like I’ve been on break for forever now and really, it only just began today. We had so many snow days back-to-back… like Friday the 10th was the first one and the only days that school was open last week were Wednesday and Friday. Friday didn’t end up actually being a school day ( for me anyway ). A 90’s club opened on Thursday night and Alexah & I went and let’s just say it was a night I will never remember, so school was not happening the next day. We had fully intended on going, but it just didn’t happen. This week is my ‘spring’ break even though there is really nothing spring about life around here currently. The smallest snowbanks are like 3 feet tall and the path next to…

Hi! It’s been a minute, hasn’t it? I don’t really know where the time has gone, but one minute I was spending hours re-designing the blog and working on new posts & the next I was swamped in school work, overwhelmed with a bunch of drama [ the teachers may or may not be on strike, my placement may or may not be cancelled, my mama’s teacher heart may or may not be breaking every day ]… So ya! Here we are, almost two weeks later… Today I thought I’d just do a fun post. I saw this over on Erika’s blog earlier this week & thought it could be fun. As she said in her post – she loves being nosy & figures a LOT of other blog readers do, too ( isn’t that why you’re…

So, hi. Hello hello, welcome back. I don’t know who I’m welcoming back, maybe it’s you… maybe it’s me… maybe it’s me welcoming us both back. As you can tell, I took a little blog break and it was definitely an impromptu one. I was struggling during Blogtober and I fell off near the end of the month, but I had planned on posting a few times a week… and to be honest, I never got around to it. Sometimes I’m really in it and other times, I get really discouraged when it comes to this blog. I find that I get hyper-focused on one certain type of posts and then I do everything that I can to keep them flowing but I get bored. I feel like I’m on autopilot. & I also start…

So. Today has completely wiped me out. It really doesn’t help that the cramps from hell have hit, I got a flu shot last night and literally cannot lift my arm past like my bellybutton ( it hurts so bad ) and we’re getting home renos done and they’re so f’in loud. Like loud loud… taking off a brick chimney is NO JOKE. But all that whining aside, I think the overall cause of my emotional drain is school. School this year is all types of weird. During my undergrad degree, it was all fun & games. Seriously. I enjoyed going to school ( I KNOW… who enjoys school? But seriously, all my friends were there, there was comfy chairs, good study spaces, GF food, a nice up-to-date gym, & tons more. That place felt like…

01 | What I’m eating this week: This week has been a lot of salads, apples, chicken and smoothies. Last week I did the Wheat Belly 10-Day Grain Detox. It was full of super delicious foods & I may or may not still be eating a ton of the recipes this week just for fun. 02 | What I’m reminiscing about: Last fall. I really was in my damn element last fall! I was only in two classes and I wasn’t working a ton, so I had time to do all kinds of fun fall baking, cooking and activities & I loved it! This fall is a little more jam-packed with school and work, but I’m trying to fit in time to do all of the fun things I want to do. Also for some…
