No More Confused Burrito

It is T-7 days until I enter a new decade of my life. And then I will be 30.

I’m actually kind of excited. One of the reasons is that lately, I have been feeling happier, more focused and more centered than I perhaps ever have in my life.

Day 68 - Me

Today another one of my friends turned 30, and she asked a question yesterday on Facebook that has gotten a tidal wave of comments. Her question was this:

This is the last day of my 20’s, and all day I will be reflecting over the insane amount of growth that occurs between the eve of turning 20 and the eve of turning 30. Tell me something interesting you learned from your 20’s. It doesn’t have to be the most important thing (but it could be!) or the most useful advice (but it could be that, too!). It could be deep. It could be irreverent. But tell me all the same. 🙂

A Day Without Words | Green & Stuffed All Over

Don’t you love it when you can knock a bunch of fun things off your to do list all at once – like hang out with friends, celebrate a holiday, and make delicious food? For St. Patrick’s Day this year we got to hang with our friends Josh and Nikki, who we do not get to see as much as we would like to, and their adorable little Corgi Jax. He was wearing a bow tie. I squee-ed. Their house is full of awesomely geeky things, and there was maple-y bacon syrup for the bourbon, shitloads of corned beef, and Guinness bread. What a wonderful day.

A Day Without Words | A Grey Bookish Day

Sunday was a dreary, rainy day, made even more soggy by the melting of the week’s blizzard. We picked up a little salt water taffy (thanks to Kaylah for reminding me how much I love it) with the groceries, took a trip to the bookstore, then stopped by our foxy Thor-looking neighbor’s apartment (who happens to be a special effects makeup artist – swoon) for a Holy Grail party. We left quickly to get over-tired bear to bed, but not before she stole some of his fruit. Papa Bear went back over for the movie portion of the festivities while I got a little much-needed me time. It was a good day.

How did you spend your weekend?

Favorite Things | New Books | March

This monthly new books tradition is one of the best ideas I have had in a long time. I’m an obsessive researcher, and although I also have this magical thing called the internet, I still love being able to sit down with a great book, fiction or non, and read and reference for real.

Favorite Things | New Books | March

March’s selections got quite mystical. Maybe it was the rain that day, maybe it was the fact that spring is right around the corner, I don’t know. But vegetables, ancient magical symbolism and faeries seem just right for this time of year.

365 Photo Challenge | Day 66 | In The Morning

Day 66 - In The Morning

Day 66 of the 365 photo challenge is “In The Morning.” Papa Bear has the ability to sleep so hard I wonder sometimes if he is dead. This ability has been passed down to Baby Bear in spades. He woke up very confused seconds after this picture was taken.
