One Year of Ollie

Ollie (aka Ollivander Rutledge Dellinger) had his one year adoption anniversary with us a couple weeks ago. We’re not really sure when he was born, but the vet estimated that he was about one and a half when we adopted him. To keep it simple, I decided that Ollie and Jack share a birthday… so they are both 2 ½ now.Hope Jack doesn’t get a complex about it. Or Ollie. Because frankly the dog is a bit of a diva and it would be JUST like him to get a complex over sharing his birthday.I guess the most important thing to say is: Ollie is not Potter....more

The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge: Okay, I Did It

I really thought the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge was dying down.Celebrities did it. Bloggers did it. A ton of people in my Facebook feed did it.There was uproar FOR it. There was uproar AGAINST it.Over $53.3 Million was raised for The ALS Association, compared to $2.2 million during the same time period last year....more

Time for another DietBet?

I’m thinking it’s time for me to do another DietBet.After a week at the beach and a few weeks (ahem… months) of eating pretty much whatever I want, I feel a bit… um, fluffy. I was thinking that this back-to-school season would be a good nudge to get back into eating healthy and working out.If you’re a newer reader and you’re not quite sure what this DietBet brewhaha is all about, here’s the short & sweet version:...more

My Flawed but Authentic Portrait Session

One of the things I mentioned in my All about BlogHer post was that I was able to visit the Flawed but Authentic suite. I wasn’t really sure what to expect, but I knew that they were planning to take photographs for an upcoming portrait book called Flawed but Authentic, Embracing Myself....more

Dog Proofing with a Staple Gun & Chicken Wire

For the last few weeks, Ollie has been driving me crazy. Every time I would let him out into the fenced-in area of our backyard to do his business, he would run under our sun room instead.I think there might have been some bunny rabbits living under there, because one day a HUGE Ollie-sized rabbit came running out.Hmmm… maybe they were making some sweet cross-species love?...more

Confiscating my Doughnut

This morning after I had my annual lady-flower checkup appointment, I decided to stop by the gas station to fill up and grab myself a little treat. After filling up my tank and paying at the pump, I went inside and got myself two donuts and a medium coffee.I stood in the long line, fantasizing about biting into the sugary goodness of my Krispie Kreme and slowly made my way towards the front. There seemed to be some sort of hold up on one of the registers, but I ignored it and huffed the smell of my vanilla flavored coffee....more

I made a Meme... I think.

I took a picture of Ollie the other night and EVERY time I look at it I start laughing.You might remember it, because I posted it on Facebook and Instagram. In the instant I took the picture, Ollie TOTALLY looked like the character Crazy Eyes from Orange is the New Black.So, I left it on my phone. And giggled every time I saw it....more

My July 2.0 Stitch Fix: A Lesson in Customer Service

I know, I know. I JUST wrote about my July Stitch Fix order two weeks ago. But, I was left with a yucky taste in my mouth after that Fix and just didn’t like ANYTHING that much. I was disappointed. And even kind of annoyed because I was totally planning to find something amazing to wear to BlogHer....more
