It would appear that I took the summer off…..

But I’m back!! Stay tuned! A couple of my manis from the past couple weeks πŸ’…πŸΌ I’m still loving the Sally Hansen Miracle Gel polishes. 

I miss the accountability that writing gives me. So I’m going to fine tune my blog whilst learning more of the tech side. Make it all pretty and stuff. πŸ˜πŸ’œ

 Happy Sunday!!

Airhead alert!!

#manicuremonday was all set. I painted my nails in a timely fashion nice nice…..went to work and forgot all about posting. I never took the pictures, damn it! So I’m a day late again…..I’ll get it together one of these days. πŸ˜²πŸ’…πŸΌπŸ˜‰

I kept with my Sally Hansen Miracle Gel, they’re just so easy!! It’s called “S-Teal the Show”. It’s teal of course. The regular 2 coats is perfect with this one. I like it, it’s very different for me. 


See you tomorrow!! #wellnesswednesday 

Fresh mani Monday πŸ’…πŸΌ

Sooooooo Monday’s come quick don’t they?! We had Anniversary weekend so there was a mushy love fest for the past 3 days. πŸ’œπŸ˜πŸ’‹ We have been together for 7 of the best years!! I’m so lucky!! Look at our surf and turf, My Love is the Chef!!

Now back to business!! ”Tis Monday, ”tis Mani day! So in honor of my Bestie’s Anniversary this week, I’m channeling my bridesmaid’s dress! It was a perfectly feminine beautiful bubble gum pink. That’s what Shock Wave Miracle Gel is by Sally Hansen. I’m just loving these polishes! πŸ˜πŸ’œπŸ’…πŸΌI’m feeling like a 3rd coat would’ve been ideal but 2 works. I’m keeping my nails SUPER short while I grow out the acrylic damage. 


It’s driving me bananas to have such short nails but they’re super thin, damnit. Patience is a virtue blah blah blah πŸ˜‰

Anyhow see you Wednesday for Wellness Wednesday!!

Boston in TMinus 3 days!!! Be warned!! I’m coming for you!!!?🀣 I had this post all done and froze my WordPress app trying to fix my Facebook link, son of a…..g’night peeps!! 

Wellness WednesdayΒ 

Good afternoon friends!!

Manicure Monday was a success so I’m going for a 2 post a week routine. πŸ˜πŸ‘πŸΌ My gel polish is still perfect!

I’ve been kicking butt with Weight Watchers! I’m down 23 pounds and I’m really enjoying it! I had a great week last week until Tommy’s birthday weekend. But I’m not mad I just tracked it all and I’ve moved on from it. I lost 1.8 last week and I’m still looking okay for this week. Lots of clean eating necessary to stay on track. I want to lose a few more pounds before the Boston trip and I’m pretty sure I can do it!!


On another wellness note my Bipolar Disorder has been acting up a ton. I’m super exhausted and crabby….just not me. I’m quiet, and not in a peaceful way. I generally have issues in the spring so I’m not too surprised but it still doesn’t make going through it any easier. I hurt and I feel useless. I’m in a funk and I do not like it. I struggle with my eating and feel like self sabotaging everything I’ve worked so hard for. Good thing I have My Love by my side!! He stops me, well makes me see what I’m doing. 😍😍 It’s tricky having a miserable a$$hole living in my head. I am trying to practice my self care but I’m unable to read when I feel like this. I just am not me. I’m going through the motions but I’m not IN it. I slept in today hoping to brush it off….we shall see.

Thanks for reading friend! I hope you loved Wellness Wednesday! Time to learn! Have a great rest of your week!! See you on Manicure Monday!! πŸ˜πŸ’…πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ’œ

Gotta love me some FRIπŸ’œYAY πŸ˜Š

A busy day of the week this week.😊


I’m pretty stoked today since after I work today and tomorrow I have 3 days off in a row!!!!! 😁😁😁😁 I’m gonna try so very hard to do nothing at all. πŸ˜† I’m physically burned out. My Bipolar Disorder, which is a full body disorder, tells me that I’m pooped!!! I’m looking like a cute tanned zombie!! 😜😜😜😜😜


Dr Michelle says I need rest and a lot of self care with it. So I’m gonna do some Kindle reading, some yoga, some hood walking with my lil family and daydream of spring. 🌞🌻🌱🌸🌼🌷 

We now have our tickets to Boston for May 4-9 and me and WW are in full effect!! Had a great couple weeks and I’m looking forward to 5 more till Boston!! Track track track it all!! Water till you burst!! 

This is the 30 minute chicken noodle soup I made while My Love was traveling. So good!! 🍲🍜


My Love goes on the road again next week. Looks like I’ll have to find another batch cook recipe so I won’t have to cook for 1. Hello Pinterest!!

Until we meet again have a great weekend!! See all you peeps next week!! 

A lesson in balance

I’m trying to get my week in order….I was supposed to be at the gym at 12:15 but it’s 12:41 and I’m all snugged up with Bailey under the covers on the couch. I feel like ass kinda. I’m tired, really tired. How do I tell what is needed rest and what is a must do? I have to work at 5 and time’s a ticking for me to have a productive day before work. I’m thinking I may just take it easy before work but we need to eat…..super clean and low points would be ideal. That means I’ll head to the grocery store and grab some deli. 😁 Sandwiches probably, how exciting. I’m feeling like I’m unprepared for my day. I hate that. 

I’m almost off of one of my long standing meds that I take a high dosage of. So I’m a little extra restless from that I’d imagine. Today is no rainbows and champagne Chrissi. Today is just rolling with it. Whoop whoop 😳

I’m just like everyone else in that I’m my own worst enemy but I’m old enough to realize that sometimes it’s just fine to be blah blah blah. Just don’t be an a$$hole to anyone while blah. πŸ˜† All is well. Today is my day off so I have ALL day to try and be productive. That sounds like a doable mission. 

To all of my peeps: Have a great week!! Here’s a few pics from my week! Pasta fagioli, my birthday dinner, and my WW 10% loss pic ☺

My word of the year: Humble πŸ˜

Good evening peeps!! 

Happy Monday!

So My Love is traveling on business so it’s just me and my lil lady Bailey. Admittedly it’s pretty lame around here without him. ☹️ Also I shall admit that Thursday at 11PM can NOT get here fast enough!! 😊 

It’s early 2017 and I’m kicking so much butt!! I’m learning a lot of stuff simultaneously so that is how I’ve come to pick my word of the year: Humble. Between work and Crossfit, I’m overcoming being crappy at stuff….I’m taking critiques and learning from them. Am I getting mad? Hell no I’m thankful for the time and the looking out!! I’m getting better by the day. My confidence is mounting, I’m eating frogs on the regular!! 🐸 🐸 🐸

I’m being a coupon queen again now!! It feels so good to save money!!! πŸ’° We eat really clean and it’s always been said that you can’t eat clean on a smaller budget. I’ve been saving a bunch already this year!! My goal was to save $100 this month, and I’m already at about $200 saved and we are only half way through the month!!


Good thing I’m saving all kinds of money, I just picked up 2 of my prescriptions for a 30 day supply and it was $173.00! GODDAMN!!! 😑🀒😡 My “Miracle Medication” is $155.00 this month. It goes up to $170 sometimes. My insurance saves me like $900 on it too. What a ripoff!! Good thing I’m rich!! 😁 It’s pretty expensive to get me “normal-ish” πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Botox, medications…..shiiiiiiitt!! Normal…..NO THANKS!! πŸ˜†


Gotta go, that’s my dinner!! 

Have a great week peeps!! Love, Chrissi and Bailey 🐢🐾❀️
