Currently: November

Wednesday, November 7, 2018


All of the new opportunities that are coming my way. It's pretty crazy that when you start saying yes to things even more things start presenting themselves. Also appreciating how generous other people can be with their time and resources if only we ask. I have made a concerted effort this year to not only delegate more but just ask for the things I need from people. It is really that simple. You get 100% of what you don't ask for. 


I feel like life is just one long research project sometimes don't you? I guess if I had to pick one thing it might be how to generate multiple streams of ongoing income. I have been listening to a podcast called Side Hustle School and I am slightly addicted to it. If you are like me and you can't quit your day job and pursue your dreams because you are an adult and people depend on you, go check this out. It is pretty amazing to hear all of the ways folks make money in addition to their "real jobs". 


Food, food and more food. At least that is what it feels like. But... I have been trying to post more pictures of me lately as sort of a personal challenge and to make my IG feed a little more well,  personal. I know I am more drawn to accounts where people actually show their faces, tell their stories , share their vulnerabilities and just be real. 


Antsy and excited about the holidays. Every year brings something new and this year is no different. I am really looking forward to shopping for my kids (99.9% online), putting up the tree, baking lots and lots of cookies, baklava and nutroll, and celebrating the joy of the season with my people. I am entering this holiday season 30 lbs lighter than I was last year at this time and in a really good place all things considered. Can I play Christmas music now please?


In my Instant Pot and LOVING it. Ok, I have only made a few things but they have been really amazing and I can't wait to make more. Do you have any favorite IP recipes you can share with me? Everytime I go to Pinterest for that reason I fall down the rabbitt hole and get lost. I need help getting focused on a few tried and true standbys.... GO. 

Linking up with Miss Anne today!




  1. Ha, so true - life really is kind of one big research project, because I never have any idea what the heck I'm doing! Currently it's on to researching kindergartens...yikes. And ANOTHER blogger lady making me think I really should get that Instant Pot that I keep adding/saving to my Amazon cart.

    Happy lead-in to holiday season - I'm excited too! :)

  2. I could really use an Instant Pot. It's so cool! I'm excited about all the upcoming Christmas things too.
