Well Hello There

A long time ago, we used to be friends, but I …(pause)… haven’t though of you lately at all. Come on now, sugar, bring it on, bring it on, yeah. Have you seen the new season of Veronica Mars?  I like the new intro song, but it’s a dandy shame they didn’t include the “come…

Well, hello there!  Posting about shampoo the other day sparked the blogging bug so I thought I’d pop back in with a WTF! post and catch you up on life lately. Not much is happening. The End. I guess that’s not true.  Sure, nothing knock-your-socks-off exciting is happening, but things are going on: STARBUCKS HAS…

Okay folks, I shared this on FB recently, but figured I should probably blog about it as well since it will be an adventure.  Part of me is a little embarrassed about it, but I’m also very excited and thankfully the excitement is winning out. So here’s the deal…  I recently stumbled across a new(er) haircare…

Truths We Have Forgotten

I heard something the other day that literally stopped me in my tracks.  Like, *literally*, literally. I was walking Koko while listening to a podcast and the words I was hearing made me stop walking!  It was like I had to stand still because if I moved I might miss some of it, like my…

In case you missed the share earlier today on Instagram, I am super excited to finally share… I’M STARTING A BUSINESS!! It’s called That PNW Shop, I’ve been thinking about it for almost a year, and finally decided I should just go for it!  Fear and self-doubt have been making me question everything but I’m…

What the Friday!

So… it’s been a while since my last post, and obviously my February blogging challenge went nowhere.  I made it through the first four days of February before it all went to heck.  I’ll spare you the details and just hit the highlights… sudden onset sore throat terrible sinus thing that lasted two weeks (had…

A Wasted Day

If you want to skip this post I won’t be mad at you. I’m feeling a little whiney about what I did (or didn’t do) yesterday, and writing about stuff helps me figure things out so this is more of a journal entry than a blog post that offers any useful content to society.  Sometimes…

I love being spontaneous!!!  As long as I know about it ahead of time. Mr. Won’t Run has a very fluid work schedule that can open up (or close up) very suddenly.  When he gets some unexpected free time we can now spend it together since I’m not withering away in a cubicle which is…

Life Lately – Not All Those Who Wander Are Lost

  (image via IG: @thatpnwlife) “Not all those who wander are lost” We’ve all heard that line before (which is apparently from the poem All That is Gold Does Not Glitter written by J. R. R. Tolkien for The Lord of the Rings), but it was running through my head a while ago and it…

The Best Day

Today was by far the best day I’ve had in a very long time. Now that I’m not working (separate post coming soon about that), the day started slowly.  Mr. Won’t Run slept later than normal and we weren’t up until about 7:20.  I thought about hopping back into the cozy, warm bed after he…
