30 and Single

(Taptaptap.  Ahem, is this thing on?) Hi.  My name is Ali, and I am 30 years old and single. And call me crazy, but I’ve decided to blog about it.

‘Friday Night Lights’ Trivia

Ok, I couldn’t resist doing one more post on Friday Night Lights.  Today we’re talking FNL trivia! Since I watched the show on Netflix, I didn’t get the chance to see all of the bonus footage and interviews on the DVDs, which is always a “must” after I finish...

10 Reasons To Watch ‘Friday Night Lights’

I have now officially joined the ranks of the thousands of Friday Night Lights fans who binge-watched this show in a matter of weeks.  Unfortunately, this happened for me years after the show went off the air, and I’m bummed that I wasn’t able to contribute to the ratings...

Labor Day Weekending

I hope you all had a wonderful Labor Day weekend — free of laboring, and full of fun! Mine ended up being a full and wonderful weekend.  And with the exception of a few hours spent on a freelancing project that I forgot about (oops), it was blissfully free...

My Workout Gear

We’re starting a new little series site-wide here called “Gimme Some Favorites”.  And after posting this mason jar inspired roundup today on Oven, I thought it would be fun to do a little fitness version here at Gimme Some Life. So without further ado, here is a roundup of...

Currently

Ok friends — I promise I haven’t abandoned this site!!! This summer has been full of all sorts of crazy, wonderful, and fun adventures.  But it has been just that — full.   No complaints here.  But I’m happy that my crazy travel schedule has finally started to wind down,...

30 Things I Have Learned At 30

I did it — I turned 30 today!!! Since decade markers tend to invite a fair share of introspection, I decided to make a list (whoo!) of 30 things I have learned in the past ten years to celebrate.  It’s far from exhaustive, and I’ll warn you that it’s...

Emoticon-ing

Thanks to my friend, Bet, I finally learned how to get with the party and downloaded the Emoji app for my iPhone. And I have to admit — it makes me ridiculously happy. There’s something about adults (especially my friends who are uber-talented with words) sending goofy faces and...

Currently

It’s been a little while since I’ve done a “Currently” post. Life has been plenty busy lately, but the good kind of busy.  A little less work, more time with friends and family, and lots of time soaking up the sunshine when the weather was warm.  (Ok, ok, and then...

On Blogging: Perspective

I have to admit that I’m a huge people-watcher.  Whether it’s airports, coffee shops, churches, you name the place, I’m that girl who’s always taking in her surroundings (in a hopefully non-creepster way!).  I can’t help it.  I have always been completely fascinated by how people interact with one...

On Friendship: Being Known

When I was a kid, I remember our old pastor always used to close the worship services each week with his trademark benediction: “The One who knows you the best, loves you the most.  Thanks be to God.” While I know this is profoundly, wonderfully, and mysteriously true with...

Spring Loves.

Green. Sunlit evenings. Fresh asparagus. Back decks. Newness. My birthday. Windows down. Rain. Easter. Picnics. Farmers markets. Birdsongs. Deep breaths. Bike rides. Warmth. Yellow tulips. Hope. What are your favorite things about Spring?
