My Advice For Single People

Annnnd, we’re back!  After six months of radio silence on the topic of singleness, I’m feeling like writing about it again.  Partly because I’ve been getting all inspired and fired up and rah-rah-fist-pump-ish lately about some things I want to share with you.  But also partly because I really want...

10 Ways To Beat Those Winter Blues!

Who else is so over winter? Ugh, it’s no secret that winter and I have never gotten along.  My happy place involves sunshine, tank tops, sandals, big sunglasses, ponytails, ice-cold drinks, bright morning walks, warm evenings on the patio with friends, and warmth galore.  But somehow the place that I call “home”...

January in Movies

Welcome to movie watching in 2015, everybody! January is sometimes a quiet release month because the studios try to take advantage of holiday audiences in December. But this January we have three powerhouse performances by talented women on our must-watch list: Three actresses nominated for this year’s Golden Globes are...

January in Music

Inspired by Ali’s new #GimmesomeDares, we created two playlists to get you moving (in the morning, if you dare). One is pop-ish, for those of you who prefer your motivation in dance-party form. The other is rock-ish, for those of you who need a little more aggression to get...

January Dare: Move In The Mornings

Let’s do this!! For those of you who missed my post yesterday, I shared that I have chosen “dare” as my one little word for 2015.  I want to dare myself to get out of my comfort zone, push the boundaries, try new things, you name it.  I want to be...

One Little Word 2015: DARE

One Little Word 2015: DARE

Alright, 2015, I think it’s time to shake things up a little. Why? Well, 2014 actually went down in the record books as the year that was shockingly, mercifully, and delightfully stable for me. I know, it feels like I should knock on wood just typing that out, but...

10 Things I’ve Learned: Cynthia

I didn’t have to go far to track down today’s contributor for our 10 Things I’ve Learned series.  This cool chick (along with her Spanish husband and Frenchie dog) actually lives just down the hall from me.  Actually, she lives in my old loft! Meet my neighbor, Cynthia. Cynthia and I actually...

Currently

Dancing around just a tiny bit (ok a lot) after booking a sweet mid-century house for my month-long stay to Austin this February.  My friend Kathryne (from Cookie & Kate) agrees that freezing Kansas City winters aren’t for us.  So this year we’re actually doing something about it and packing up our laptops,...

December in Movies

We’re hurtling toward the end of 2014, and you know what that means: All the big, heavy-hitting movies come out! In December, studios try to take advantage of holiday movie-going crowds and enter the Oscar race at the last minute. So that means we’ve got some watching to do....

November In Photos

Gobble gobble! Here’s a glimpse into my November in photos, thankfulness-style.  Because while I can roll my eyes with the rest of them at all of the photos white girls post in the fall, I never get tired of thankfulness.  The more the merrier during the month of November….and to infinity...
