Good (?) Morning, my peeps! I hope your weekend was fabulous. My poor wittle husband became sick Saturday night, so yesterday was a bit mopey for us. Hopefully I avoid catching the cold, since this week begins my crazy monthly deadline. Glory be, however, for it is a short week, thanks to FREEDOM. And you best believe I am going to lavishly enjoy my three day weekend. I can taste it already. Anyway, I thought I’d talk about something near… Read more »

We made it. We did. We made it to Friday. You might have doubted. Heck, I doubted, too, but we did it! I’m so proud of us. Anyway, if I’m honest, I’ve never given neon a thought. Ever. It pretty much existed for fraternities and sororities and belonged far, far outside of my closet. And then, once again, a pin rocked my world. Just like I rocked the internal rhyme scheme of the previous sentence. Winning. This pin, from a… Read more »

Why do I keep using song lyrics as titles? The world may never know. It could have something to do with the fact that I only know I’m actually awake in the morning when some annoying song or three pops in my head. It’s never a good song. It’s something ridiculous. Recently it’s been that stupid Ariana Grande “Problem” song. Good for her, she’s very skinny and young, and quite talented and blah, blah. But I can’t tell you how… Read more »

I know, I know. You’re never going to get tired of my riffs on Disney songs as blog titles. I’m here to serve your needs, dear reader. I’m facing a dilemma. A first world problem, if you will. Its name is Bedding/Bedroom Furniture. Its parents got creative in the name game. A bit of back story: Our master bedroom furniture is my bedroom furniture from when I was like twelve. It’s nice, solid, well-built furniture. The dresser and nightstand will… Read more »

It’s peaceful right now. Quiet. The world is in its summer sleep, and only a few cars are whizzing by outside. Even the birds and bugs are hushed now, not finding much worth chirping about. The pale peachy sun is rising, making its way to the sky, and I am breathing, enjoying the silence and this coffee, and forgetting the pain of the world. Except I really want a breakfast taco. Or four. Bacon, eggs, potatoes, and cheese, on a… Read more »

Okay, don’t let the title confuse you. I’m not asking any questions. You actually asked me questions. But when a Disney song pops in your head, resistance is futile. Just… Let it go. And now that you all hate me/have a Disney medley raging through your skulls, let’s talk makeup! (Questions paraphrased and nicknames given by me.) Q: What is your skincare routine AND what makeup do you carry in your purse? – Mad Madame B A: I’ve circled around… Read more »

(To the tune of “Hello Muddah, Hello Fadduh”) Hello Readers, Hello Buddies. It is Friday Week was cruddy. Friday is so Soul-relieving. The hours will pass quickly with some believing. Thank you, thank you. I can’t believe it’s Friday. Don’t take that to mean that I don’t need Friday with every fiber of my soul. Oh, no. I need it. I welcome it into my arms and probably squeeze it a little too hard, like Of Mice and Men. And… Read more »

Hello, everyone! I hope you had a lovely weekend. Ours was splendid. On Saturday, the Hubbit went to work, and I ran to HEB and then to my parents’ house where I prepared a delicious steak lunch for my family as part of my Father’s Day present. I hung out with my family which was much fun, we gave my dad the rest of his gifts, and a nice time was had by all. Then I raced home, changed and… Read more »

Y’all!! It’s Friday the 13th! And there’s supposed to be a super rare, full “honey” moon tonight! I don’t know what that means, but had I known ahead of time, I would have thrown a honey moon themed party. Somehow. Go with it. Anyway, that really has nothing to do with what I liked while shopping around this week. But it felt important to say. I hope nothing super weird happens today! Unless I win the lottery, and can buy… Read more »

Morning, my sweet friends! Maybe it’s my morning cup of coffee, or the fact that I woke up early enough to enjoy a leisurely coffee, or that it’s already Thursday, but I have definitely been feeling more peaceful since I’ve decided to concentrate on not guilt-tripping myself. I am cutting myself a break. And it feels really nice. I’m hoping those of you that related to my last post are feeling similar peace in your lives. If not, I encourage… Read more »
