Strange But Super Bowl [Recipes]

I love a super bowl. I eat one every night. I'm told there's a big TV commercial football game this weekend.  Being from the South, I couldn't care less about pro football.  College is where it's at!  However, I do love a good party and the food that come with it.  I also love to make people stare. In honor of the grand tradition of the Super Bowl, I'm dedicating this week's #strangebutgood post to strange but super snacks - some from me, some from some awesome bloggers! Brown Beer Hummus … [Read More...]

I Own This + WIAW

We create our own destiny. I refuse to read my horoscope. Someone told me that Mercury is in retrograde.  After Googling to see WTF that meant, I called bullshit.  There are times where life gets more challenging, time is short, motivation is lacking... but in the end we decide how we handle … [Read More...]

Gettin’ Quizzed on a Plane

I'll never tire of surveys. How do these things take me longer than "regular" posts? Megan nominated me for one of those Liebster award quizzes a couple of weeks ago andI'm finally getting around to it.  It's fun airplane project as I fly back to Atlanta from San Diego.  The random pics … [Read More...]

Strange But Good Travel

I can't travel like a normal person. At least I wear shoes... The creepiest part was that when I said something to the flight attendant she said it happens all the time.  Apparently parents even let their kids go to the bathroom barefoot!  I have a friend that is a flight attendant and SHE … [Read More...]

5 Standing Desk Benefits

Stand Up Desk + WIAW

Do you realize how much you sit? It makes my hips hurt! I've gone through a lot of "hacks" to have standing desks.  At one job I stacked up Girl Scout cookie boxes to set my laptop on.  When I'm at home working, I use the condo gym to build a treadmill desk.   I can't stand to sit still. … [Read More...]

Marriage Advice – From You!

Married 2 weeks and I'm already giving advice?! No.  Not even I am that arrogant confident. When I shared that I got married, I asked you guys for advice.  You delivered!  Since there were so many wise words, I decided to summarize it to share with everyone.  Mostly for Vegas' my … [Read More...]

Ghetto Fabulous French Toast

Ghetto Fabulous French Toast [Recipe]

I like to get toasted. In the French way 'cause I'm classy. French toast is becoming an unintentional theme for #strangebutgood.  Last week it was Healthy French Toast.  2 weeks ago it was totally unhealthy (but delicious) Eggnog Baked French Toast.  Now it's the thug life. This is the … [Read More...]

2015 Progress

Competition Prep 10 Weeks Out + WIAW

I'm on the wagon. Seriously. 9 days sober. It's finally time to get back on the stage.  I took a year off from competing to grow and it paid off well.  I put on about 15 pounds (20 at my highest)... and a decent amount of that is muscle.  Looking back at pictures from a couple of years ago, I … [Read More...]

Leaving Las Vegas (for now)

I've never been so sad to leave a place. But I'm not leaving for good, Sheryl Crow! http://youtu.be/Xkc-en0_LGY In an uncharacteristically impulsive move, when I flew back to from Tahoe with Vegas after we got married I decided not to take my next flight to Atlanta.  This was completely … [Read More...]
