I didn't make any resolutions for the new year. I don't think I did last year either. And that's ok. Honestly, I'm pretty content with who I am as a person. However, that's not to say I am without goals. My biggest goal for this year is to finish my damn novel. I even opened … Continue reading Doing more of what makes me happy.
Good morning everyone! Happy Monday! It's the second week of 2018! How are your resolutions coming along? I didn't really make any... oops! Actually, one of the things I want to do this week is reflect on the year, and make some goals for 2018... keep your eyes peeled for that belated new year … Continue reading Wake Up Call #48
Have you ever had a job that totally and completely changed your life? No, I'm not talking about pursuing your passion, or changing the world, or even making a bunch of money. I mean a minimum-wage job, without which, you wouldn't be the person you are today? I have. I was a day camp counselor … Continue reading Cinderella’s Glass Slipper and Other Weird Games I Played at Work
HAPPY NEW YEAR!! 2017 was... interesting, but I realized something in looking back on it when I jumped on the #bestnine trend on Instagram: Which of course makes me want to be sappy for just a minute. (These posts are supposed to be motivational, right?) In the spirit of #NewYearSameMe, it’s time to make some resolutions we’ll … Continue reading Wake Up Call #47
Guys. I have been such a slacker on the blog front lately. I don't know if it's been the craziness of the holidays or what, but I didn't write a wake up call, or a regular blog post this week. And, I haven't been nearly as active as I should be in the blogging community. … Continue reading Slacker
The hubs and I hosted our third annual Christmas party this weekend, Miracle on Madison!* Why is it called Miracle on Madison? It's not only because of our street name, but also because-- fun fact about me-- I am in the 90's version of the movie Miracle on 34th Street! Well, a picture of me is … Continue reading Miracle on Madison
Good morning!! Did everyone have a merry weekend? I sure did! Saturday we hosted our annual Christmas party, and, if I do say so myself, it was our most successful yet! But more on that later this week. 😉 Can you believe it's Christmas next week?! No, me neither! So, read your wake up call, … Continue reading Wake Up Call #46
Hi friends! I’m a little behind on things this week, so I thought I’d reshare this post about Love Actually, to help you get into the holiday spirit. Let me know your thoughts about this movie in the comments on the original post and/ or what your favorite Christmas move is!
P.S. If you’re looking for another great movie to get you in the holiday spirit, The Santa Clause is one of the most underrated Christmas movies of all time.
You know how Buzzfeed posts those articles that are like, “101 Thoughts I had while Watching [insert TV show or movie title here]”? Well I did something similar last year while watching Love, Actually (one of my all time favorite movies, in case you were wondering) with my parents and sister. As we watched the movie, I wrote down funny things every one said throughout.
In the spirit of Christmas this weekend, I thought I would compile them here to share. Merry Christmas!
I hate that woman that doesn’t wear a bra… I hate them [her boobs].
I hate this bitch. (Colin Firth’s cheating girlfriend)
There was a lot of hate in the first few minutes of the movie, apparently.
“Lovely, obliging girl,” -obliging wink-
Yeah, but not for you Colin Firth.
Rae, are you going to do that for my wedding? (Hire a band to…

Happy Monday! Today is a special day: my sister Rachel's birthday! We celebrated over the weekend by dancing on a trolley, frolicking in the city, eating jello shots, and hugging each other a lot. I also got her the best present (besides allowing her to be my sister): two little frogs! They are adorable, and … Continue reading Wake Up Call #45: Rachel Edition
Every morning on my way to work, I listen to Fred and Angi's morning radio show on Kiss FM. They do a segment called The Five at 7:45 where contestants answer five pop culture/ general knowledge questions. Two callers play each other, and the winner goes on to play the next day; if that person … Continue reading How I became BFFs with Angi Taylor
