Labor Day Weekend


This is who I spent most of my labor day weekend with…..




It’s the little things..




I had the most disgusting chicken cutlet sandwich for lunch. So much so that it left me feeling sick. I complained to Papa bear about it… actually all I said was I wasn’t feeling well. An hour later I get a mystery visitor at the door.  Who’s standing at the door??? Papa bear with my favorite drink in the world a Taro milk tea with tapioca.

Thank you papa bear!!!



Are their rules to dating? Are their certain timelines you need to follow? What works for one person doesn’t necessarily work for someone else. We spend a good part of our lives searching for the right person. Someone who will be your other half…someone who will complete you…I don’t believe there are any rules or timelines one needs to follow. I think if you follow your heart and don’t be foolish then everything else will fall into place.

A lot of times things don’t happen the way we expect. And just because things don’t turn out the way that you wanted doesn’t mean that they won’t ever will. I have learned that everything happens for a reason. And now I finally see that everything is falling into place.

Before I met papa bear I was single for 3 years. Before that I was in a relationship for 5 years. And yes I loved that person the time that we were together. But the whole time that we were together I never thought or spoke about marriage with him. From the age of nineteen to twenty four I was in a committed relationship. We were constantly asked when we were getting married. We both never answered and that didn’t bother me at all. I couldn’t see myself spending the rest of my life with him but at the same time I stayed with him all the time. After we broke up I think I cried that first night but then after that I didn’t shed another tear. I knew it was time for me to move on and find my own way in life. I dated a few guys. Some I had no interest in and some I did but never worked out. I met papa bear out of nowhere and I think this was the first time in my life where I didn’t expect anything. For once everything worked out…Two months after we met we officially became boyfriend/girlfriend. Four months after that I moved into his apartment. A little over a year after that we moved into another apartment together. Now after two years of being together…I can’t picture my life with anyone else. Of course I would love more things to happen with him but I don’t mind patiently waiting till the time for that comes. And I know that it will…



Vacation and Getting Fit


I will be going away in exactly 47 days…

Destination: Jamaica

Duration: 7 nights

Goal: Lose ten pounds.

Now I know that losing ten pounds in less than two months may seem a little unrealistic. But it has to be done. I currently weigh in between 127 and 129. This morning I weighed in at 129. But that’s to be expected since the weekend is when I usually lose my way and make terrible choices in food. My choices in food usually include donuts, pizza, fried chicken, soda and frozen drinks. I’m terrible at following a meal plan and usually am not very motivated to exercise. But I think if I can keep my calorie count between 1000 and 1200 and exercise regularly. My goal could be very attainable.  It is getting cooler so I will try to get out in the mornings and try walking about 30 minutes some mornings. I will alternate by riding my bike to work at least once or twice a week. I think the key for me will be to more aware of what I eat during the weekend and try to stay healthy with my food choices. I know I can do it!

Gray Hairs


My current dilemma…gray hairs! They are everywhere. When I was young my mother used to make me pluck her gray hairs so now as an adult I have also developed that habit. I can’t remember the first time I plucked a gray hair but I do know that now I’m plucking a gray hair every other day. A quick fix would be to color my hair (which I plan on doing very soon) but I also would hope there would be a more permanent solution to my gray hair dilemma.  After some research I’ve decided I will either try melancor or Foti Root. They both claim to reduce the appearance of gray hair from the root. I also don’t know how much I trust these supplements. Now a day there is a supplement for just about anything you can think of…

Any thoughts? What do you do to hide those nasty grays?
