Before He Cheats

Ara and I had been planning on doing a photo together for a while and decided to share the gorgeous Chic Moda Suzie shorts from the last ever Bish Box. The photo sort of took on a life of its own and we ended going all Carrie Underwood on this car. So, there ya have…

To AraCakes with Love

I grew up listening to my mom telling stories about hanging out at the soda fountain at the pharmacy after school. The closest thing I had to that was my last two years of high school, we’d all park at Corner Grocery, which was really a Texaco station, get drunk and dance in the gravel…

A Dog’s World

A Dog’s World There’s a little joke I tell a lot. I can’t remember where I’ve heard it and if you’ve heard it before, just bear with me for a moment. “I feel sorry for people that don’t have dogs. I hear they have to pick up the food they drop.” It always tickles me,…

Feeling Like a Rockstar!

Most days I don’t have a great deal of confidence in myself and I’m probably harder on myself than anyone other than my parents ever has been. However, once in a while I have a day where I feel super productive and actually take some pride in myself. Today is one of those days. I’m feeling…

Blossom

A dear friend of mine is always reminding me to, “Bloom where you’re planted.” While I know she didn’t just up with that as she told me a friend of hers often told her the same thing. I did some research and it seems to be quite a mystery. Regardless of where the quote originated…

What if…we get real?

How was your day? Such a simple question to ask, but it can make a world of difference to the person you’re asking. Its usually the first thing I say after, “Hi Baby!” when I see Sino each day. Whenever I’m excited about something, I tend to make my story first followed by embarrassment for…

What’s Your Poison (part 4)

“Mr Skytower, would you like a reading while you wait?” He opened his eyes to see Sady standing beside a table in yet another change of clothes, only this time she seemed different. Less playful than before, definitely more serious. He wondered what he was waiting for exactly and had he fallen asleep? He’d only…

What’s Your Poison? (part 3)

He nervously took a seat in the chair she had pointed out. It was oddly comforting. He felt himself relaxing quite a bit, but unsure how or why. I must be more exhausted than I thought. He watched her disappear behind a wall of curtains and wondered what she might be hiding back there. A…

TaKe Heart ♥

This time last year, little did I know I was about to experience one of the worst days of my real life, followed by some of the hardest and most challenging months. Those closest to me know the gory details and I’d rather not relive them here, but here I am a year later in…

We’d Smoke Weed

“Stop killing each other man. Let’s just smoke a blunt.” Tupac It’s no big secret that I’m an advocate for the legalization of marijuana and I’m not going to use my blog as a political soapbox. I think most people would agree that weed is a pretty chill drug and that if you smoke it…you’ll be…

Lady On Red

My close friends will be quick to tell you that my drink of choice is tequila. A few months ago, someone even introduced me to a better tequila than I had been drinking and that was a dangerous introduction. Too many bottles of that have met their end with me. Don’t misunderstand, I’m not a drunkard….

Not Listening

“Don’t listen to what anybody says except the people who encourage you. If it’s what you want to do and it’s within yourself, then keep going and try to do it for the rest of your life.” ~ Jake Gyllenhaal I love this quote because I’m not a very good listener when it comes to…
