scarves on the mind.
If any of you remember, I bought my final scarf of last season this past December and swore that would be the last one for a while. I am proud to share with you that I succeeded! (Besides of course getting two as a gift from a special someone.) I did not purchase one scarf all winter long after that. Oh, I saw plenty. But I walked away. Sometimes you have to just say NO. In fact, I really have...

a 2011 baby.
One of my bests from high school is becoming an aunt today for her third time! Her sister is in labor as we speak. I just took a moment to really think about what a baby being born into the year 2011 will see in their lifetime, starting from their very first birthday. A different world than any of us ever knew growing up, for sure. 9/11 practically occurred a decade ago(a bizarre thought), and is...
I tried it once or twice from Starbucks, the hot and the iced, and both times thought, this is so good! If you really think about it, it tastes like fruit punch that has been boiled. The word boil is disgusting. I just took the time to notice that it is offered in the kitchen of my office. I only had eyes for the green tea, never paying attention to all the other, different tea bags at my daily...

50 things you can control right now.
Right now you can control: 1. How many times you smile today. 2. How much effort you exert at work. 3. Your level of honesty. 4. How well you prepare. 5. How you act on your feelings. 6. How often you say “thank you.” 7. When you pull out your wallet for luxuries. 8. Whether or not you give someone the benefit of the doubt. 9. How you interpret situations. 10.

Ugh, I’m SO over them. I don’t care if they get back together or not. But if they do…this world is just mad.

I’m eating yogurt with an expiration date of February 18th. Today is the 22nd. I imagine this isn’t life-threatening, but for some reason today I’m willing to take that chance.
There’s two types of frustration. The kind where you want to scream at the top of your lungs and cry and curse and just go balls to the wall crazy because you are so frustrated, and then the kind where you are silent. Because you have already taken the first route and are so emotionally and mentally spent that you have no energy left to do any of that. Feeling very much the second. I think...
I don’t know if this is the unpopular opinion, or the popular opinion, or just MY opinion, but I am going to say it loud and clear, I find it straight up WEIRD when people post sonogram pictures as their Facebook default. I get that we live in a word full of public displays of our daily lives, that’s just dandy. Put a picture of your baby as your default. Blog about the weekly updates...
They don’t get discussed nearly enough on Tumblr. But as I sit here in mine, comfy as can be, in these skinny-jean-look-a-like, really-feel-like-cotton-leggings pants…it begs me to ask the question, do you all wear them too? I asked my friend at work if she could tell they were jeggings and not regular jeans, and she said, “Oh, you’re wearing Pajama Jeans?” WHAT!...
Taking a moment to appreciate all the positive people in my life. It’s easy to take these people for granted at times, because we couldn’t imagine it any other way. So much so that we forget how truly great they really are. I appreciate so much all of the different relationships in my life, which I don’t do nearly enough. Because the truth is, these relationships are what life...
Men are respectable only as they respect.– Ralph Waldo Emerson
Is SO good. Got it for lunch today because it’s been a minute. Salmon and avocado roll, x 2. That’s all I have to share. But I had to share.
One word frees us of all the weight and pain in life. That word is Love.– Sophocles
Can SO powerfully affect a person’s mood! A little sun and warmth is truly medicinal. I cannot wait for the cold to pass. And I am truly being a believer in the whole spring coming early this year thing. I believe, I believe. I am totally okay with any sort of rain that comes in the process though. I wanna wear my Burberry babies already!
