Real Talk about Hair Loss

Hello friends! I thought today would be somewhat different. I want to share my experience with hair loss. In 2012 I was diagnosed with Hashimotos disease and my thyroid surgically removed. Back in 2004 I was diagnosed with hypothyroid and I think things went downhill (health wise) after that, although the last couple of years…

Heat of Summer

Hello friends! I hope you’re staying cool and safe in this hot summer! This morning at 830 it was already 80 degrees, so I’m guessing it’s gonna be a scorcher again! I have a black car with black interior and it’ll be a little toasty when I get off work! How do you stay cool…

Fashion Addicted Self Care

Hey friends! How was your Monday? Glad it’s over??? Me too LOL Last week I took a values assessment (work related) and I discovered in four values areas: work, relationships, leisure, and personal growth-health that I am lacking in the leisure area. Who knew?? I graded myself two dots away from “bullseye” in work and relationships but then realized I work pretty hard and am dedicated- along with being connected in the vital relationships in my life- so I thought that might be a judgement of myself. I graded two dots away from bullseye in personal growth/health because of my…

Destroy an Ugly Car!

Hello friends! I’m in the middle of a relaxing evening and hubs wants to watch a James Bond movie. I’m always down for Bond; and we started Quantom of Solace. (I love Sean Connery although I think Daniel Craig is best bond evaa). One thing I notice as the movie starts, DANG IT! THEYRE DESTROYING ANOTHER GORGEOUS CAR! Seriously how many Aston Martin automobiles must die in the name of Bond?? Couldn’t we just sacrifice a Pinto or a Nova or (LOL) a Prius?? Why can’t the pretty cars be safe?? I really like cars; did I mention that?? Just…

Let Me Adjust

Hello Friends and happy Monday! My son moved out (again) into his own apartment Saturday and I found myself quite sad. I wondered why…. I started this blog when my youngest child (daughter) married and moved out last year, I thought it would help me adjust and focus on something else other than work or…

Downton Comfort

Hello Friends! I’m feeling kind of tired and discouraged today, I know that’s not fun to hear about but it’s real life (I get tired (worn down) of speaking about trauma and death all the time) so I came home to watch Downton Abbey on Amazon. I know it’s not new on TV but it’s…

100 Followers!

Hello Friends!! This deserves it’s own post right?? I’m super excited to have each of you as followers on my blogging journey and thankful you take the time to read. I think blogging might be a little like life in some ways. It takes time to accomplish big goals, like graduating college or getting your…

Haute for Pink (but does IT REALLY MATTER)

Hello friends! Some times I have random thoughts such as “do I wear too much pink”? Normally I’m the last one to leave the house in the mornings and it’s even not a question I can ask my husband because he has no opinion on what color I wear LOL But I have to remember….it…

Happiness Is….

A rainy Saturday. Riding my bike six miles in new bike shorts my son/daughter in law gave me. And because I can… I’m snuggled in a blanket watching Thor:The Dark World. It’s a self care Saturday.

Weekend Revival

Hello friends! So this weekend I got to lay in bed after six am twice!! I think it’s so peaceful to wake up naturally:) (granted I did wake up sweating at 1am but I’m pretty sure that had to do with yesterday being the hottest day so far (freaking AC is not on) and NOT…
