Family, friends, yoga = a day of bliss

A few weeks ago, Stacey and Meghan and I decided to check out a new yoga studio. Called PlanBreathe and located in Plaza Midwood, it’s a tiny brick building tucked among homes, and you might miss it if you don’t know where to look. If you find your way there, however, you’ll be glad you…

Say yes, 2012 (hot yoga, pink hair, rock climbing)

So, it’s almost February, and I’ve finally decided on my New Year’s resolution. And I want you to do it with me. More about that at the end, but be ready, my friends. I had a little bit of an idea about what I wanted it to be in my head, and I’ve been kind…

Nothing good ever happens after midnight

My mom used to say that all the time. I completely disagree. In fact, plenty of good happens after midnight: – The best parties don’t even start until then. – The likelihood you’ll get dinner and a show at an all-night diner certainly increases (I’m thinking of a specific instance that involved Waffle House and someone…

I’m edgy, impulsive, self-centered and an instigator. What are you?

When I was a child, I would read anything I could get my hands on. Cereal boxes, newspapers, whatever was lying around. And as the horoscopes were always near the comics, I would usually end up reading what the stars had in store for me long before I understood what any of it actually meant.…

Scene of the crime (of course I returned!)

Do you recognize this? Yeah, I didn’t either. That’s because the last time I was at the Diamond Restaurant, I didn’t even get to the part where a menu was handed to me. Instead, I decided to entertain the restaurant with my lovely fainting episode which landed me in the hospital for three days. That…

‘like peeing in your pants’

Ah, I turn twenty-thirteen today. Love being in my 20s. I was going to write a post going on and on about how wonderful all those in my life are (yes, I am talking about you!) but I have been doing that a lot lately. Instead I’ll show you some of my super-cool presents. Pampering…

The post in which I show you my smashed-up face

So, we left off yesterday when I realized I fainted and I was tasting blood when I talked. Not a good feeling. As things started to come into focus I realized it was Jeff who I’d asked if I fainted. And there was another guy next to me asking me questions that seemed very official.…

Wanted: Hush puppies, macaroni and cheese. Ate: asphalt

Ok, so I’ve been going on about this for about a week now on Twitter and Facebook, but I wanted to tell you all exactly what happened to me a week and a half ago. It was a typical Friday night. At least, that’s what I thought as I tore apart my closet trying to…

Make your friends accountable for your productivitity. It works.

As an update to my to-do list post, I am feeling very productive and accomplished, especially considering I have been fighting a chest cold for almost 2 weeks now (yes, I’m going to the doctor today.) Just so I can pat myself on the back before deleting it all and making a new list:  …

Coffee, conversation and procrastination fees

It all started with an incorrect passport and not-so-good health insurance. Last week as Susan and I had coffee, and then beers when the coffeeshop closed (yes, she’s one of those can-talk-for-hours-together friends), we discussed to-do items. Namely, the type of to-do items that nag away at us and we stress about them far longer…
