It’s Friday!! YAY!! But I’m melting

It’s Friday!! YAY!! But I’m melting

The heat wave continues here in NC — I’m literally melting.  Why do I even try to wear makeup?  The second I step out of my super air conditioned home, the wave of humidity and heat just melt my makeup right off.  Like a candle and a blow torch.  Seriously.   Anyone else have this problem?   Since it’s Friday, I figured I’d write about all the fantastic things that have happened this week and things that I look forward…

Oasis VoxBox!

Oasis VoxBox!

I’m a youtube fan.  It’s pretty recent, but I’m all about it!  I love watching videos to learn new things — from make up tips, to recipes, to organizing my home!  It’s amazing to watch and absorb! One thing I learned about from youtube is Influenster!  Recently, I signed up and was able to get my hands on the Oasis VoxBox full of goodies! I signed up, answered a few questions, and a few days later this arrived in my…

Procrasti-nasty

Procrasti-nasty

At the eve of my next family vacay, I find myself cursing my past lazy self for not getting on top of the ToDo list!! In order to counter act my procrastination, I'll be running around like a chicken with its head cut off for the duration of the day and part of tomorrow. This has happened before and I think there are pros and cons to be a little procrasti-nasty. Pro- I'm super efficient when up against a time…

Fear of Flying!

Fear of Flying!

As a half korean, I’m very good at worrying.  It’s a time honored tradition that was passed down to me from my Korean Mom.  She’s the champ of worrying and her strategies include (1) waves of worry, increasing over time, (2) imagining scenarios where all new levels of worrying can by applied, and (3) being full on crazy faced — with irrational and completely unrealistic worries. In honor of my flight today, and my worry-crazy Korean Mom,  I have compiled…

Hubby Love <3 <3

Hubby Love <3 <3

Like many of you, I’m obsessed with my hubby.  He’s my absolute favorite human alive!!  We’ve been together for over a decade and married for 6 years now.  We are in no rush to start a family, so instead we end up spending tons of quality time together — doing things and doing nothing.   This week, I’ll be traveling to stay with family for a week — completely solo.  Hubby has to stay home and work work work!  🙁…

Packing Grid?

Packing Grid?

Like many of you, summers are full of fun road trips, day trips to the beach, and even a few longer trips to visit far away family and friends.  My summer is no different — as I will be taking as much time as I can to visit and help some family and friends.   A down side to this super fun traveling, is packing!  I never know what to pack, especially for a week or longer — as is…

Thursday Things: Notebook Love <3

Thursday Things: Notebook Love <3

As a teacher, office supplies are near and dear to my heart.  I fiercely protect my pens and pencils.  I ration paper like we’ve chopped down the last tree in existence.  I horde markers of all types and bury them deep in my drawers.  I collect every type and size of paper clips, three ring binders, and staples. I know what you’re thinking — I sound psycho!  But over a decade in the classroom has taught me that if you…

Water baby

Water baby

My mom used to call us all that — Water babies — we because we loved playing in the water.  Whether it was getting our feet wet in a puddle, splashing around in the sprinklers, or swimming in the lake/pool — we loved the water. There was a summer when I wasn’t very old, where my mom got us kiddos an inflatable rectangular pool.  She wouldn’t fill it up all the way, so it was really more of a splash…

Progress!

Progress!

Tuesday’s workout was LUNGES!  I’ve written about lunges before and have experienced a handful of workouts where the predominant movement was lunges. Lunges and I have a history. The second time we went to Crossfit, the workout included lunges… and was SOO PAINFUL! To start with we had to do either 50 double unders or 100 single unders.   At this point, I could only do singles… Then we had to choose a medicine ball and first complete 10 wall…

Family Time

Family Time

Hello All! It’s been a while!  Have you missed me?   The past few weeks have been all about family time — which mean I was “unplugged”.  Starting in late April, I had to prep the house to receive visitors and prep myself for playing hostess.  Does any one else feel pressure when playing hostess? I would have to say that my anxiety was at about a 6 the whole time they were here… with peaks at 8 or 9 but…
