I need this plant

Let me start by saying I do not have a green thumb.  Not at all!  I try…I hope.  Indoor plants just don’t survive in my home.  It might have something to do with the fact that I forget to water them.  We do have some greenery in our house, but let me be completely honest now – they are 2 lighted fake ficus trees that I bought at a home staging sales 6 years ago.  Totally sad -…

Words: Time to Take a Risk

Have you ever wanted to do something personally or professionally but you’ve kept telling yourself why you couldn’t do it or why it wouldn’t work?  I know that I’ve done that before.  I come up with all kinds of ideas all.the.time.  If I’m going to be honest, sometimes the fear of the unknown paralizes me.  I’m afraid that it’s going to bomb or people might not take the idea seriously.  Does…

DIY Branded Notebooks

Happy Saturday!  I decided to get a little crafty this morning and play with my camera this morning.
I love moleskine journals.  They are different than the notebooks.  The journals don’t have as many pages, have a softer cover and you can easily flip through the pages.  
When I rebranded ROAR events, I had some stamps made with our logo.  I thought this would be an easy way to make…

Friday Favorites


I get inspired all the time.  Thought I would share some things that I’ve seen over this past week that I’m having a hard time getting out of my head.  Welcome to Friday Favorites!
01. These chicken fajitas look so good that I just might need to make some this weekend!  Maybe for the superbowl.
02. I’ve been wanting to redecorate my office and this one looks so inspiring to me.  I might…

Words: Let’s Be Adventurers

Happy Monday friends!  We just came off a fun-filled and relaxing weekend.  The mister and I got away this weekend.  We headed up to Napa while the little mister was away at Winter Camp.  To say that we needed this little getaway was an understatement.  We get so caught up in our everyday lives, we forget that we need to spend quality time with each other.
This weekend also gave me time to…

happy birthday to me

Today is a big day.  Today is my birthday. I love my birthday.  Always have.  I love to celebrate and lucky for me, I just had lunch with two very dear friends that I’ve known for about 45% of my life (let’s just say over 20 years).  My phone has been beeping off the hook with people writing on my facebook wall to wish me happy birthday – oh the love I’m feeling today.  Thank you all.

No To Yoga Pants

I’m 9 days in to my button pant challenge and I’ve lost a few pounds. YAY!  I had told myself that I was going to wear button pants 5 days a week and I’ve worn them every day since January 1.  I think I’m going to change my plan.  Button.Pants.Every.Day!

How has it felt?  Well both good and bad if I’m going to be honest.  I told myself that I needed to feel that yucky, uncomfortable…

This is My Year

Happy Monday!  We’re back at work, getting back into our routine.  And yes, I’m wearing button pants. 🙂
I’ve been really thinking of my new year resolutions.  I want to create more, give back more, connect with people more, grow more, and travel more.  And then I came across this gem that sums everything up so perfectly.

The Year of the Button Pants

Happy New Year!
We are still on vacation – yes, that’s right.  We made a very conscious decision to take time off this holiday season.  It feels great.  We’ve had time to spend with family and just chill.  But I do have to say, I’m excited to hit the ground running come Monday.
I’m sure so many of you have been thinking about your new years resolutions.  I know I have.  How I want to…
