FRIDAY 5 THINGS: WHEN SOMEONE DOESN’T LIKE YOU

FRIDAY 5 THINGS: WHEN SOMEONE DOESN’T LIKE YOU

Today I was inspired to share a little something different on the blog so please humor me. The featured photo is from the movie “Legally Blonde” after Elle gets dumped by her boyfriend Warner. Typing this all I could think about was Elle saying, “So you’re breaking up with me because you’re afraid your family won’t like me? Everybody likes me.” I’ve admitted on here before that I get anxiety quite often and one of the worst times is when someone doesn’t like me. One piece of advice I continually get is “to Hell with those people” but I don’t think that mindset is always healthy. Doing the hard work of introspection can lead to not only personal growth but stronger relationships. These are the 5 questions I ask myself when that happens because- full disclosure- it really hurts. I hope this helps other people who could be struggling with the same thing.  Continue reading “FRIDAY 5 THINGS: WHEN SOMEONE DOESN’T LIKE YOU”

SUPER BOWL RECIPE RECAP

SUPER BOWL RECIPE RECAP

I hope everyone had a great Super Bowl Sunday. Altogether I had a pretty phenomenal day. I spent most of it in the kitchen cooking and didn’t hurt a single person including myself. I ate my body weight in tortilla chips. I got what I wanted out of the Super Bowl (i.e. commercials and half-time shows). I laughed way too hard at the commercial with Eli Manning and Odell Beckham, Jr. I sang “Cry Me a River” secretly hoping that the rest of N*SYNC would make a surprise cameo. Best of all, I got to make great memories with some of my favorite people.  Continue reading “SUPER BOWL RECIPE RECAP”

FRIDAY 5 THINGS

Hey everyone! It’s been a while since I last posted and I want to apologize for being MIA this week. I’ve been fighting a migraine and low estrogen levels so looking at a screen without the help of Zofran has been difficult to say the least. I took the opportunity to focus on my health and to brainstorm new ideas for posts. Man, it feels good to be back! Continue reading “FRIDAY 5 THINGS”

FRIDAY 5 THINGS

Happy Friday and Happy Birthday to the incomparable Dolly Parton! The Patron Saint of the Smokies makes my heart sing today and every day. I hope you all have stayed warm this week. Heck, I hope everyone has held on to his/her sanity this week if the kids have been out of school for snow. If you’re a teacher then I’m happy you (hopefully) got a well-deserved extra break. I’m praying that you’re all feeling well. The flu has hit our part of Tennessee so stay safe and if you’re leaving the house bring disinfecting wipes with you. I added a photo of me at Blackbird Bakery in Bristol because I went on Monday and stocked up. I’ve been thinking about them all week when I eat one of the dozen things I brought home. I’m also wearing the softest article of clothing I own and it’s perfect for a UT game so I’ll link it below. Ok, here we go!

BIRTHPLACE OF COUNTRY MUSIC MUSEUM

BIRTHPLACE OF COUNTRY MUSIC MUSEUM

Happy Monday everyone! I’m enjoying my day at home since the clinic is closed in observance of MLK Day. I hope you’re all staying warm and getting your Vitamin C. Our area of Tennessee has been frigidly cold this month but that doesn’t mean your only choice is to stay inside. Not that I have anything against snuggling up under a fuzzy blanket in my favorite sweatpants. That’s what we did all weekend until we decided we should take showers and rejoin humanity. We ended up at The Birthplace of Country Music Museum in downtown Bristol and learned a lot about this city’s heritage. Continue reading “BIRTHPLACE OF COUNTRY MUSIC MUSEUM”

FRIDAY 5 THINGS

Hey guys! This week was busier than usual at the clinic and I am feeling it for sure. I took a loooooong bath Tuesday night with a glass of wine and I honestly could have done that every night and still might feel this tired. Flu season is upon us! Stay hydrated and full of vitamin C. Here are the 5 things on my mind this Friday. Links are embedded in the titles unless otherwise specified. As always thanks for reading and letting me share with you.
