It’s a girl!

13.100.17.

I think you already know where this is going. 

The only way I would be pregnant is through immaculate conception. Also, I’m saving myself for my wedding, that is if I ever see the day. Sorry for the heart attack, mom.

All tasteless jokes aside, here’s a new playlist to inspire your next great prank.

Spring blues

Hi, there. Miss me? 

These days, it seems like I don’t have as much time to blog. Sometimes work and life doesn’t let you keep up. I’ll figure it out and get back on track eventually. Things have a way of working out in the end. In the meantime, I appreciate your patience.

For it being officially spring, it sure isn’t acting like it. When you wake up to a storm, you just want to hide under the covers all day. I just want sunshine and clear blue skies again.

In other news, Lent is going along great, except for that one dream about a brownie. Soon, I’ll be able to enjoy a chocolate bunny. I also want to get back into a regular routine in time for summer. Also, it’s the end of the month, which means a new playlist is coming for something to look forward to.

If it’s also gloomy for you, stay warm and cozy. If it’s not gloomy, tell me where you are, so I can run away.

40

Alright, so it’s been a while since I last updated. Three weeks, but who’s counting? Hopefully, you didn’t miss me too much. Anyway, I’m here now and that is all that matters.

It is Ash Wednesday, which means Lent is officially here. This year, I’ve decided to give up sweets. I haven’t been kind to my body in terms of eating and something’s gotta give. 40 days without giving my sweet tooth the satisfaction should do me some good. I ended Fat Tuesday with a pint of Ben & Jerry’s and that’s that.

I also recently found out about 40 Acts, a Lenten generosity challenge, and I decided to sign up for it. Each day, there will be a daily challenge to encourage kindness for others. A simple act of kindness can go a long ways.

It’s the beginning of a new month, which means your new playlist is here. Enjoy.

Happy March.

Seasons of love + update.

2017 can slow down anytime now. It is officially February, which means the season of love is now in motion. Actually, every season is for love. Love others. Love yourself. It will make your heart happy and therfore you will live longer. You’re welcome.

Okay, I know it’s not Thursday. It’s tomorrow, so close enough. I’ve been thinking lately that I want to change the title of my blog. It’s a common one and I’d like it to be more original. I don’t know what to call it, so for now, I’ll just leave it blank until I come up with something. 

Here’s the 2017 edition of your February playlist. Enjoy, loves.

P.s., if you didn’t catch it, “Seasons of Love” is a referring to the musical, Rent. It’s my favorite and you should check it out.

Update + favorite things.

Hello, there! You look beautiful today. I also hope you’re having a good day so far.

It’s been two weeks since my last post. No, I didn’t disappear off the face of the earth, if that’s something you’re wondering. After blogging consecutively for an entire year, I’m all written out. A little break is nice to have, but now we’re back to business. At least I hope so. I would hate to disappear again after finally getting a handle on this.

Nothing new happening here, so here are things I’m currently into:

Television

Black Mirror (Netflix)

Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events (Netflix)

Bates Motel (A&E)

Music

Darkness and Light -John Legend

Movies

La La Land

Okay, so it’s not an extensive list, but a list is still a list. It’s only the first month of 2017. There will be more new things to enjoy.

Have a fantastic weekend.

2017

Another year, another Thursday.

​Happy 2017! I accidentally fell asleep and barely woke up in time to kiss my dog. How was your New Year’s Eve?

About this time last year, I made a resolution to blog once a week for an entire year. And now we’re here. I didn’t make a resolution this time around because I couldn’t think of anything.
Anyway, here’s a playlist. 

I hope 2017 is nice to you and that all your wishes come true.
