Sunday Bests: Lessons from Home

Life isn’t what it was, and I’m okay with it. There are some things I struggle with, like overwhelm and frustration from work… and as a result, I’ve been fiery. I fought the urge to apologize for being emotional. Moving on… My Saturday started with yoga, trying a hair tutorial, and coffee. All the usual, except for the hair because I never ever do my … Continue reading Sunday Bests: Lessons from Home

40 Days and 40 Nights

Remember that movie? Josh Hartnett, the teenage heartthrob, couldn’t sleep with anyone for 40 days. Whatever happened to him? If you want something similar to that movie, watch “Too Hot To Handle.” I am unfortunately enamored with the tall, 23-year-old Aussie who uses the phrases “naughty possums” and “little quesadillas” to refer to people. Okay, so that’s what I’m doing – watching bad T.V. like … Continue reading 40 Days and 40 Nights

Sunday Bests: Giving Time for Friends & Food

I haven’t shared my intentions in awhile, but in the spirit of Thanksgiving, I intended to give time to the people in my life and it was pretty easy. Pre-Thanksgiving with Friends “Modified day” lunch, walk with a co-worker and her baby, and air massage using Normatec sleeves. The hip sleeves were my favorite! My friend Elle was also in town so we grabbed ice … Continue reading Sunday Bests: Giving Time for Friends & Food

Sunday Bests: Catching Up with Friends

I’ve caught up on sleep and maybe I’m even oversleeping by going to bed by 8 or 9pm. Working out when I wake up has helped my mood after work and allowed me to do things with friends. I shared a bottle of wine (50% off) with a co-worker at Cultivation Kitchen then passed out, drove out to Chino Hills to visit a friend and … Continue reading Sunday Bests: Catching Up with Friends

Sunday Bests: Leaf Chasing & Pumpkin Carving

In past Octobers, I’ve been to the Eastern Sierras and New Mexico for some of the most relaxing trips. Last year in October, I spent a 3-day weekend in Lake Arrowhead and Big Bear. I’m a PSL basic b*tch but now I’m into apple cinnamon everything instead. Somehow, I’m being more responsible with my funds and I’m going to a destination wedding next month and … Continue reading Sunday Bests: Leaf Chasing & Pumpkin Carving

Sunday Bests: Me at my best (at home, at work, with friends)

This was an insane week, but I showed up for it. It was even that time of the month! It was me doing my best, being a good enough teacher (2 of 4 periods are lovely, the other 2 kill me), and taking time to be with friends yet still getting activity and rest. Me, at home Me, at work Me, with friends Yelp 80s … Continue reading Sunday Bests: Me at my best (at home, at work, with friends)

Sunday Bests: Rest Week (But Not Really)

I’m still high on last weekend’s camping trip. It was refreshing but not quite restful – we spent all day out hiking and roaming, came back late, and sat by the campfire for dinner, s’mores, games, and laughter! It was back to work and quite a busy week – advertising for Rainbow Youth and potluck for back to school night. The AC was broken at … Continue reading Sunday Bests: Rest Week (But Not Really)
