Reflecting on 2020 + What I’ve Learned

Quote of the day: “Your current situation is giving you an opportunity to re-evaluate what you want.” Officially four days away from 2020, the craziest year of them all. This year has gone by so slowly, yet so quickly at the same time. A part of me feels like March 2020 just happened, but another part of me feels like it was years ago. Anyone else feel the same way? I am so ready for a new year. I personally love the new year and I see it as a fresh start… although some may disagree. I do not, however, see the new year as…

Merry Christmas

Quote of the day: “I absolutely love Christmas!” What’s the quote from? Well, it’s from my favorite Christmas movie ever… Eloise at Christmastime. If you haven’t seen it, I highly recommend it. Both my parents think it is obnoxious… I think it’s fabulous. At the Plaza hotel in New York City, there’s a whole Eloise store! It’s wonderful. I just wanted to hop on here and wish everyone a Merry Christmas. I hope everyone is surrounded by their loved one’s either physically or over Zoom. Hopefully next year we’re able to have large gatherings again! Christmas at my house feels pretty normal for the most…

Getting in the Holiday Spirit

Quote of the day: “Don’t get your tinsel in a tangle.” Christmas feels different this year… everything feels different this year. I love this time of the year because I love the lights, the music, the warmth, SANTA, everything. I am doing everything in my best ability to make it feel like normal holidays. Here are some of my ideas to help get into the holiday spirit. Watching Christmas movies is a GREAT way to feel like it’s Christmas. Honestly, Christmas movies might be my favorite genre of movie. My favorites include: The Holiday How the Grinch Stole Christmas Eloise at Christmastime Elf The Santa…

Holiday Gift Guide: Fitness Addict

Another gift guide today! Since it’s Fit Friday, what better way to celebrate than to do a fitness guide? Enjoy. AirPods Pro: I recently got my first pair of AirPod Pros after years of the Bose bluetooth headphones and… I love them! They’re not the most comfortable things, but the noise canceling is awesome and the fact that there’s no chord is awesome. Plus, the case is a charging case, so no more dead headphones. Bala Bangles: These blew up once COVID hit because everyone started working out at home. Basically, they’re 1-2 lb. weights you put on wrists or ankles and workout with them…

Happy Thanksgiving

Quote of the Day: “There is always something to be grateful for.” Happy Thanksgiving! This year is quite different, but there is still so much to be grateful for. Although today’s Thanksgiving will be smaller and quieter than usual, my family will still be spending all day in the kitchen. My parents home cook all the dishes and it is fabulous. When I’m older, I am definitely hand making everything… even though it seems stressful as hell. On the menu today: turkey, creamed corn, potatoes au gratin, mashed potatoes & gravy, stuffing, cranberry, apple pie, and my contribution, pumpkin cheesecake. I cannot wait to PIG…
