Already Overwhelmed

If you’re anything like me, you were waiting until the 5th to start all those new year resolutions. It only made sense, right? Who wants to start a detox diet on a Thursday? And forget about organizing anything because Christmas still needed to be boxed up. Well, here we are. Monday, January 5, 2015. I spent all weekend feeling anxious and overwhelmed about the things I planned to start today. This includes, but it not limited to 1) a 21-day {Read More}

Following Suit with a 2014 Recap

I am going to follow Megan’s lead here and share a recap of 2014. Because, if I’m being honest, 2014 was tough. But, it’s all relative, right? I did one of these posts in 2013, too. And, this sort of post is a perfect one to get my fingers and brain back into blogging mode. I’m feeling sort of refreshed and motivated after my two-month hiatus. Truth? I contemplated not ever blogging again. But, I have missed parts of it {Read More}

RECAP! Thanks for Subscribing!

YouTube channel, Long Story Short

Last weekend I was out early doing some holiday shopping. I scrolled through my phone and sipped on coffee as I waited for the stores to open at my local outdoor shopping center. As they rushed by, two tween girls excitedly told another early bird that they were there for some sort of meet and greet. Hmm…my interest was piqued so I followed them. Tween girls sure do walk fast. Thankfully a cute puppy dog caught their eye and I was {Read More}

Fan Favorite Duos

It’s no secret that I love reality TV. I definitely have some favorites in unscripted television but the never-ending arguments, crumbling marriages, scheming and backstabbing can make one lose some serious faith in humanity. A lot of times I’m left craving a little camaraderie. Friendships like those between Laverne and Shirley or Lorelei and Rory. Or those classic buddy moments from Joey and Chandler or Zack and Screech. Great friendships make for great television, don’t you think? I asked a {Read More}

RECAP! This Week on Long Story Short

YouTube channel, Long Story Short

Megan and I have been cranking out videos for our YouTube channel, Long Story Short. In fact, we recorded four new ones earlier this week and Megan declared that we were “on point” followed by a string of hand clapping and festive party hat emojis. Of course this was all via text because real life hand clapping and party hats would just be ridiculous! Ridiculously awesome. Sparkling Water Taste Test Taste test videos might be our favorites to record. No {Read More}

What You Might Have Missed on Long Story Short

Megan and I have been making videos for our YouTube channel – Long Story Short – now for about six weeks. We crack up like crazy and it’s become quite a production on the days we record. I’m talking lots of lighting, microphones and wardrobe changes. Admittedly, we’re still trying to figure out what is working. We’re also playing around with content, too. We want to always offer some sort of takeaway and right now we’re throwing a lot of {Read More}

Favorite Netflix Shows to Watch During Chemo

I am so stoked to be part of the Netflix #StreamTeam! I learned last month that I was hand selected to join their exclusive blogger network to help share the awesomeness that is Netflix.

This month on the blog we’ve talked a lot about breast cancer and it’s been an awesome month of takeaways despite the heavy subject matter. While October {Read More}
