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…

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…

Tuesday = recovery 

Tuesday = recovery 

Tuesday’s Treat day — my treat is RECOVERY!!! Lots of rest and hydrating going on still.  We are about 2 days post marathon now — and I’m still feeling the stiffness, the soreness, and new places that hurt.  Immediately after the marathon, I knew my feet were shredded and my legs were spent… but yesterday my shoulders were hurting and today it’s my feet.  It’s kind of amazing — a constant reminder that I gave the race a huge piece…

Taco Tuesday!

Taco Tuesday!

Just a quick post to share some treats from my taco Tuesday: First up – of course, my tacos!  Made tacos for dinner complete with a little dish of guac and some chips. Watched jeopardy with hubby as we ate. Yum! Next up – I admired my nail polish from last week — it’s somewhat chipped but I’m going to rock it until it’s a bit more chipped.  Instead of swapping polish, I had a bit of a hand massage…

Lighting Someone Else’s Lamp

Today is Tuesday!!! This usually means TREAT DAY and while I still plan on taking care of myself by stretching, eating well, and enjoying my day; I want to treat my hubby too! Lately, we’ve both put eating well on the back burner.  We’ve treated ourselves to whatever quick or take out or restaurant meal we think sounds good in the moment and the effects of these poor decisions are showing up.  For me, the scale shows only slight fluctuations…

Tuesday’s treats!

Tuesday’s treats!

For this week’s treats, I got to raid my local pharmacy! First up, a fall lip gloss color — this is the 8HR Infallible lip gloss from L’Oreal.  It’s in the shade #705 — which I think is called Sangria. It’s super flattering on my skin tone and is super sticky — so it stays on way longer than any other lip gloss!   Next up, running fuel!   I’ve been training with Raisins — and only raisins — and…

Tuesday’s treats!

It’s Taco Tuesday and while tacos are my favorite treat, my spoils don’t stop there!   Coffee Break One of my coworkers was the absolute sweetest and gave me a Starbucks Gift Card!  So you know I had to walk to the closest location and grab a coffee!  This is the pic of my flat white after several yummy sips! Actual Tissues This may not seem like a treat to you, but to me, actual tissues are a luxury item!…

Tuesday’s Treats!!

Tuesday’s Treats!!

This time of year is all about Back to School!  As an educator, it’s all about PLAN PLAN PLAN!!! Without adequate prep work, done in advance, the whole term/semester/year will feel like a giant game of catch up.  Too many things come at teachers all at once, so we have to use our summers to plan as far in advance as possible to free us up for this onslaught of stuff to do. I’m a big planner.  I love making…

Tuesday’s Treats!

I’m proud to report that I feel 100% better today!  Even though the heat gave me some issues yesterday, I wasn’t going to let it keep me down!  I fully recovered yesterday and felt completely recharged today. I even had enough energy to run to the bank, get groceries, make hubby lunch, complete my upper body strength workout and do four loads of laundry!  All before having any coffee!!  (I’m sipping my first cup as I sit here typing —…
