I think it is safe to say that a lot of women wish their hair was the opposite: different hair length, thickness, texture, and everything in between. I have always been one of those women. My hair is extremely thick and styling it can be a pain. I use to think it was impossible to get straight hair, or decent curls. But I was proven wrong.

Just a few days ago I realized it was time to start thinking about Thanksgiving dinners.

Kitchen Cleaning Highs & Lows (the forgotten spots)

November 10, 2014 No Comments

I cleaned up with Zep Commercial® as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars. All opinions are my own. #TryZep

Dare I say this, but cleaning is like my happy place. When I get overwhelmed with work, I take a break and clean my house. When I am feeling over emotional, I become a super cleaner. When I have 2 too many cups of coffee, I have cleaned the whole house in a blink of an eye and re-organized closets.

Last year when we made our Fall Bucket List tree, there were a few things that I really wanted to do more of. Roasting marshmallows and making s’more was one of them. As my friend, Ashley, and I were discussing things to do this Fall with our families, I was thrilled when she suggested a s’mores party. We got to planning immediately.

I am a gal of routine, but sometimes it is just time for a change. I like to make goals throughout the year and those goals can only be reached if new routines are created. With my most recent goal, I had to make the decision to change just about everything I do in the mornings; including less coffee and more water, with the help of drink mixes.
