Recent Musings

I have been feeling  reflective lately. The holidays are the perfect time to slow down a bit and take a little time to better yourself. We have made it a goal in our home to try and spend an hour each night on something to improve ourselves or the apartment. This has kept us from spending entire nights catching up on How I Met Your Mother or playing Candy Crush.

I typically split the time between reading an article or two for work and doing a little housework. I have also been enjoying several for fun reads that have been popping up on the internet. I thought I would share my favorite finds with you.

15 Ted Talks that will change your life - I love Ted talks. These are a great round up which includes my favorite Why 30 is not the new 20.

10 things I want my daughter to know about working out- Trying to find a balance between working out for vanity and being healthy has always been a struggle for me. I have always wondered how I would pass along my knowledge to future kiddos. This sums it up perfectly.

An apology to things I used to hate- On a lighter note Dark Chocolate, your amazing.

Signs you are obsessed with your dog- Also a funny one especially if you have a dog or get annoyed by dog owners. Please don't mind that most of my photos now are of Charlie or we have a monthly budget line just for his toys and food that equals what we spend on entertainment. In Joe's words, "You can't put a price on Charlie's happiness." Oh boy are future kids are in trouble....

Hope everyone has an amazing Tuesday!!



  1. I love that apology to thinks I used to hate, so so true!

  2. I love that! Such a great idea when you can get wrapped up in pinterest or tv and spend the night "together," but not in quality time!

  3. I absolutely meet every one of those signs you're obsessed with your dog. And have no shame...

  4. I read the 10 things I want my daughter to know about working out. I thought it was very interesting. I have to admit, when I'm working out i'm about 80% being healthy and 20% looking good in a bikini. I agree that we get too wrapped up in the looking good part. I will definitely check out the rest of those links. Thanks for sharing!
