Life in LDR

A hot and sunny, beautiful long weekend has just passed me by and I'm sitting here in sweatpants and Babe's sweater, like I have been since he left on Saturday, with the exception of two overnight shifts on an acute psychiatry unit and a quick dinner with my childhood best friends. Working nights has never… Continue reading Life in LDR

Are you ‘stuck’?

Well, my least favorite time of the year is here yet again, and it's come faster than ever it feels like! It's time to say goodbye to Babe as he gets back to work, this year in France. Whenever Babe is home, I find it so hard to balance our time together, because my heart… Continue reading Are you ‘stuck’?

Things I Learned from Being Loved

I think it's fair to say that the majority of us have had the experience of being in a bad relationship or being the one who "cares too much", whether while dating a person or simply just being in a position where you like someone and they don't like you back, especially in the casual… Continue reading Things I Learned from Being Loved

5 ways to be a hat person

It took me a long time to get into the hat thing. I felt like I looked funny; I started questioning if my head is abnormally large or maybe abnormally small (still not sure) or why I only noticed the size of my head once I put a hat on. I'd see people wearing cute… Continue reading 5 ways to be a hat person

Girl Boss

I'm currently sick at home binge-watching Girl Boss on Netflix, a loose (real loose) account of the life of Sophia Amoruso, the gal who created Nasty Gal. The show has me feeling both awkward and inspired by Sophia's carefree/careless attitude toward getting what she wants. Although the episode I'm currently on involves an argument with… Continue reading Girl Boss

Last Minute Lovebirds pt. 2 (With Cheese)

Well boys and girls, there's less than 24 hours until the cheesiest holiday of the year. My last post was a few ideas for people looking to skip the classic V Day dinner routine and do something that warms the ❀️, and it caused me and my babe to discuss how excited we are to… Continue reading Last Minute Lovebirds pt. 2 (With Cheese)

Last Minute Lovebirds

As kids, Valentine's Day was always the best day of the year, because it meant free chocolate at school. It also meant you had a chance to tell your crush you liked them (which is something I never did, I was the msn-only kind of girlfriend #goodgirlsclub).... But as we get older, people start to… Continue reading Last Minute Lovebirds

The Ugly “C” Word

The word I'm thinking of is 6 letters long. What did you think I meant?! You got it- cardio. I know it's what we were all thinking! Don't get me wrong, I love being active and I do love working out. But no matter how bomb my playlist is, after about 5 minutes into running,… Continue reading The Ugly “C” Word

Tales of a Hockey Wife (pt. 2)

I'm snuggled up on my couch live streaming babe's game on my laptop (the laptop I should be doing homework on...), but so happy to finally be able to catch a game. We both put our jobs first, and I'm often working or in school when he has a game. So today I am beyond… Continue reading Tales of a Hockey Wife (pt. 2)

Crunch time Cardio

I don't know what I dislike more: having a busy day and deciding to skip the gym, despite how much I wish I could go that day... OR going to the gym on a time crunch, only to leave feeling like I didn't use my time wisely enough. I'm a pretty 'thick' girl, so for… Continue reading Crunch time Cardio
