weekend recap

happy monday everyone! i don’t know where you are but in michigan it is -4 degrees out right now. you step outside. breathe in, cough and then your boogers freeze inside your nose. it’s for these reasons alone that i spent a majority of the weekend cooped up inside. it was just too damn cold […]

it was me all along book discussion

it’s finally here! the day of our very first book club. if you haven’t had a chance to read “it was me all along” please do. it was a fantastic read. i read it in an entire 5 hour plane ride. by the time the plane landed i had three women asking me about the […]

#bestself2015 week 5

weekend recap

hello all! i got to meet robert irvine yesterday! talking about bringing health to convenience stores! greetings from dallas! after my second day here i can say i’m still undecided about how i feel about dallas. i feel though, my opinion is skewed because i have been inside a hotel at a conference from 8am – […]
