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!!

Stupid cold ☹️

So I’m so very happy that it’s Tuesday. I’m sick and I have ABSOLUTELY NOTHING that I have to do today. And I intend to do just that. I’m pooped. I’ve been working a lot of days but shorter shifts. It’s a lot more time getting ready and a lot more driving time. I’m trying to be nice and accommodating but I’m tired…and now sick. It’s gonna be a long month!! 

I’m looking into my garden already!! I have spring fever like no other!! β˜€οΈβ˜€οΈβ˜€οΈβ˜€οΈI’m reading a book for beginners and their first year of gardening. Also I have a set of PURPLE gardening tools, ergonomically correct of course! 😜 I know what I want to plant and where, oh I’m just so excited!! I think a garden will do me good! My Love is just letting me run with it for  now. πŸŒ»πŸŒ·πŸƒπŸŒ±πŸ₯’πŸ†πŸŒΆπŸ…


I am getting back on track I hope with blogging. πŸ’œπŸ–‹πŸ““ Consistency is a struggle of mine. I’ll just have to work at it!! I try to do too much then I crap out and get mad at myself. Silly isn’t it?! Anyhow I’m 2 weeks in a row! It’s a streak!! 

A little couponing, some reading, resting and some snuggle time with My Love and my pup. A day off well spent. 

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 🐢🐾❀️

Holy crap I’m eating big freakin frogs!! πŸΈ

So I’ve come to the conclusion that I’ve totally been Winning The Day lately. I haven’t been working much at all at ME so I’ve been free to do all kinds of stuff. 

I feel like I’ve been allowing myself to be a weenie. My meds have changed for the better so I haven’t had the shake anymore BUT my anxiety has come up more. That’s not cool. My therapist has been showing me some more coping tricks and I’ve been doing well with it. Sooooo I will NOT allow myself to be a weenie any longer! There’s a book called Eat That Frog 🐸 and it’s based on the premise of overcoming procrastinaton by tackling your biggest task first. Eat that big ugly frog first and the rest of your day is a cake walk. So let’s just say I’ve been eating some serious frogs!!! 🐸 🐸🐸🐸🐸🐸

I want a new job and since I don’t shake I can cut hair…..so scared haven’t cut any hair since school. Holy crap!!!!! πŸ’© So I ate a big frog and applied at Great Clips. I had 3 interviews in a hour!!! 😲😲😲😲 Chrissi’s freaking the f out!!!! Eatin them frogs!!! Sooooo I’ve run into trouble because I need models to do the technical interviews. I don’t know any people here to cut their hair. Fast forward a week I have an ad on Craigslist and last night got my 2 people for the Great Clips 6 mins away. ENTER ANXIETY!!! Breathe from the belly…

I’m watching YouTube tutorials, I’m prepping my tools, wardrobe choices to make then holy shit kid, I got this!!! I have absolute nervous excitedness but I sure do have a smile on my face! πŸ˜βœ‚οΈπŸ’‡πŸ»πŸ’‡πŸ½β€β™‚οΈπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ™πŸ»

So I’m reading Eat That Frog and I’m eating frogs in my real life. Even if I don’t get this job I’m so damn proud of myself. Thank you to my peeps for having my back! My Love has been holding my hand the whole time 😍😍😍😍😍 I love him!!!

I’m flaking all over the place.Β 

So I’m feeling a ton better overall now that we’ve braved the raging rapids of my medication overhaul. Now it’s a 3 day headache that I’m recovering from. I was feeling like I couldn’t catch a break…..BUT the sun is shining, I have the day off and I feel great!! I intend to make the most of my day!!

I’ve been missing writing but I just haven’t been able to get my shit together enough to do it. In other news I’m still hot on the job hunt. 

My Love has been traveling a lot this past month although I’ve had him home a week straight now. 😍 

I’ve been kicking butt with WW!! β˜ΊοΈπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ˜Ž Also I’m still slowly working on Couch to 5K πŸƒπŸ½β€β™€οΈπŸ˜…

Tonight I’m trying out a support group for Huntington’s Disease. πŸ’œ Should be interesting. I feel like maybe I should’ve done that years ago. I’m a self proclaimed CHICKEN!! πŸ£πŸ€πŸ”πŸ₯ Anyway I’m going to check it out 😳

I’m reading a Tony Robbins book: How to Awaken the Giant Within. I’m loving it!! How did I not read him before? Personal development is something I wish I found sooner than age 32. I could’ve been much further on my journey. ☺️ πŸ€“

Sooooo all is well in this neck of the woods πŸ’œ Also fun fact: my nieces love FaceTime! And I do too! I’m sure my sister gets driven crazy about it but that’s okay πŸ˜‰

See you soon peeps!!

Monday fun day

I am just so blessed, I shall start with that. I have spent the past 5 days with My Love and my pup. I’m going back to work more rested than I was and happier than I was. I rested, I had fun and I’m better for it. We didn’t travel and spend a shit ton of money. We lunched, we grilled we chilled. We spent time with good friends….all is well. 

I should be on a conference call right now but it is ALWAYS recorded. I’m outside on my deck with tikis with My Love and his brother and our dogs. The call can wait an hour. 

Having the past days off has made me rekindle my passion for freedom from the 9-5 so to speak. I don’t want to have to rely on a check where I trade time for money. I want to build my fortune on the side ☺️ Oh Mela!!! I’m coming for you!! Step 1 build my network!! On it!
Any suggestions?

I’m back

Good afternoon peeps!!

So I’ve been away for a few days, it seems I’ve been fighting a round with life. I had that awful skin thing and now I’ve had a migraine for 2 weeks. I think I may have pissed someone off. 😁 I’ve been back and forth with my Primary Care docs a bunch. I’ve gotten a shot that tripled my pain. I’ve been to Urgent Care and had an IV of some migraine solution that helped at the time. Once that Bad Larry wore off I was back worse. I’ve been in to a rushed Neurologist consult. I’m on the fast track to get back with my Botox treatment that I KNOW works.

I’m feeling human again today and ready to face the world (with sunglasses, I still am super light sensitive). I’m out having lunch with My Love but still taking it easy. Between my regular meds and the extras now I’m a bit off for sure. My vision is fuzzy. It’ll all work out just fine, BUT I did not succeed at doing 31 in 31. πŸ‘ŽπŸΌ

We are home from lunch and a little shopping. I feel like I ran or something. Pooped for sure!

Dinner at My Loves cousins. Should be pretty low key I hope. ☺️

Have a great night my peeps! ☺️
