Goodbye, 2016!

Yesterday I spent almost an hour writing a really long, heartfelt post about my 2016, believing that being positive in the face of all the negativity of the year would start 2017 off on the “right foot”. After typing paragraphs of what I’m grateful for and have accomplished this last year and then scouring everyContinue reading “Goodbye, 2016!”

Baylie’s 18th Birthday Weekend

Back in July I visited my younger brother Baylie for the last time before moving across the country. The visit doubled as a “goodbye” and as a birthday visit since he was turning 18, and it was also an opportunity for me to see his new home and where he lived up in Jacksonville!  Continue reading “Baylie’s 18th Birthday Weekend”

Watercolor Recipe: Vegan Elvis Cupcakes

During Sinéad’s visit, we experimented with vegan baking – more experimentation for me, since I hadn’t baked something intentionally vegan more than a time or two and a lot of fun for Sinéad since we decided to “wing it” with our measurements. As such, here is a one-of-a-kind (each time, lol) sort of recipe that isContinue reading “Watercolor Recipe: Vegan Elvis Cupcakes”

Sinéad’s Visit to Florida – Part 3 + Jack’s Visit!

This is the last part of my series on Sinéad’s visit and it makes me sad that it’s almost over — I’m glad I have so many pictures to remember it! 😀 Aside from eating at various new vegan places, visiting magical Harry Potter Land, drinking lots of coffee, baking cupcakes and “scooping lefts”, we alsoContinue reading “Sinéad’s Visit to Florida – Part 3 + Jack’s Visit!”

Sinéad’s Visit to Florida – Part 2

This entry has been a long time coming! It’s been 9 months now since my beloved Sinéad visited me, and I still haven’t shared everything from her trip – a travesty on my part, to be perfectly honest. I have been incredibly busy, but that’s no excuse – I have to share the amazing selfies andContinue reading “Sinéad’s Visit to Florida – Part 2”

Hello From the Other Side (Of the Country!)

I have so much to update with, but I want to give each new thing its own post so the many amazing things that have been going on can get the attention they deserve. Before I start a big slew of back logged photo posts however, I did want to at least announce the biggest thingContinue reading “Hello From the Other Side (Of the Country!)”

Welcome to the Family, Princess Polly Anna Pibb!

A few nights ago while driving home, Nick and I saw a little blur running along the side of the street near a ditch in the rain. I asked him to pull over and we called to the puppy, and as soon as we opened the door, it ran across the road to us and jumpedContinue reading “Welcome to the Family, Princess Polly Anna Pibb!”

I’m Blue! – Color Oops, Prism Lites & Blue Hair Dye Review

I’ve been waiting for months to dye my hair blue because I wanted to make sure it was both strong enough and long enough to handle the bleaching process it’d take. I had dark brown dye (that looked black) over red dye over a faded orange mess from the bleaching I did three months agoContinue reading “I’m Blue! – Color Oops, Prism Lites & Blue Hair Dye Review”

Recipe: Frozen Microwaveable Breakfast Sandwiches

I love convenience. Like, I really, really love convenience. I’m so busy between going to school, homework, working full time + and maintaining basic things like sleep habits and hygiene that it doesn’t leave very much room for making full breakfasts or keeping up with any sort of “healthy” diet. To keep my options as healthyContinue reading “Recipe: Frozen Microwaveable Breakfast Sandwiches”
