Me again.

I have been so busy that I forgot to talk about something I got in the mail recently: Nectar Sunglasses.


About the brand: Nectar sunglasses is in the business of enjoying life. The brand launched with the intention of capturing the essence of living life to the fullest. Promoting doing what you love and loving what you do. Daring to go where no else will. The concept is simple – connect a diverse network of individuals with a common thread – to enjoy life more. Nectar’s goal is to spread the sweet life with their unique mix of advertising, personalities, athletes and products.  The culture stems from athletes, artists, musicians and other like minded people.

Cool, huh?

I visited their website and chose the desperado frames. They had a pinkish/orangish hue with an aviator look. SWEET. I was super excited to get them and rock them HARD around town. Especially since I had recently sat on my tried and true sunglasses.

Flash forward to mail day- I quickly whipped them out and 1.) they were slightly bent out of shape from being mailed. 2.) they weren’t dark enough to keep me front squinting! Ok, so burn for the bright-day wear. These are strictly (in my opinion) fashion glasses. Now someone just has to invite me to a party so I can show up wearing these bad boys.


I’ve had them a couple weeks now and I have tried them on with every outfit I’ve worn since. I only took them off because I can’t really wear them IN the office. That would just be weird.

If you’re in the market for some cool eyewear, I encourage you to check out their website to pick out a pair OR TWO to rock with your upcoming warm weather attire. Best part: if you DO want to purchase some of these neat sunnies, you can get 10% off when you click HERE and enter the promo code ‘lovenectar‘ 

You’re welcome in advance.

Oh Hey


I’m having a hard time writing lately. There’s really not that much to say or that much I care to have a one sided conversation about. That said, bringing you up to speed:

  • I went to Chicago to visit my college roommate and we did a lot of drinking and eating and staying in our pjs and laughing.
  • We are STILL working on the kitchen. I think this is week 4(?) of no appliances.

See, that’s it. You’re up to speed.

I’m gonna word vom some  stuff: I have been pretty good about my workouts- lots of variety. I’ve also been pretty good about my eats. And I feel great about my fitness, but I don’t feel great about how I actually FEEL. I see my muscles in the mirror and I can see what they do in my workouts (and lifting sheet rock) but all I can FEEL is large (not fat..I just feel big). Is that weird? To actually confess that I’m a-ok with my body and how I am taking care of it- but I just don’t like how big my legs feel or that I almost waddle because of my thighs or that I have about 7 rolls when I sit?  Meh..not sure how to explain it.


I have been walking the dogs about 1.5-3 miles a day.

I have been working out 5-6 days/week.

Ok, shh time I can’t dwell on it. Oh, except for the # of dimples I counted (or lost count of) on the back of my legs. I don’t hate that they’re there, just hate that they’re almost as prevalent as they were at my heaviest and unhealthiest.

Yeah, yeah, I drink alcohol, but that’s my splurge and I’m not giving it up because I work hard to be able to have something I enjoy.

Oh, and I started T25.


I need girl time. Sometimes- at random times during the week- I rack my brain and my contact list- in attempts to reach out to people to hang out. A.) No one responds well to last minute plans B.) people have lives. This makes me sad because sometimes I just wanna hang. Not in my house. Not with Tyler. Not with the dogs. I wanna have a full social calendar! Then I get sad when I get stuck in a dead end.


I dunno, I think social media is just overwhelming with the amount of positive things that it makes me feel inadequate?


Combine all this emotional junk with a house turned upside down mid-reno and you’ve got yourself a complete train wreck.


It’ll get better (SEE: I’M POSITIVE! Just venting)
