A Second Family

Today I am brought to the thought of second families. Over the years, I have realized that family goes further than blood. It extends beyond the bonds of anatomy and obligation and goes to the paths of others who have been woven into our own. We are lucky when we find these circumstances upon us. 
Growing up, I was always incredibly close to my own extended family - and still am. This in no way diminishes my love and gratefulness toward them. But I do believe that when it comes to our own, we often put our best selves out there in attempts to make them proud, and in that - we sometimes lose ourselves. 
It is when we choose our own family of friends and loved ones that we find who we really are. I was lucky enough to find an amazing second family along the way who has celebrated life with me, grieved death with me, offered advice, let me make my own mistakes, been there while others have come and gone, laughed and have made me laugh, and who have been there for me through the most crucial parts of my life. I am so incredibly grateful for these people and consider them my own. I am so lucky that they have accepted me into their lives and let me be a part of their story. 
Moving on from the "awws"... Let me finish by saying that these people are freakin awesome, hilarious, and down right rockstars. Thank you to the awesome times had and for the many to come.

An Incredibly Cheesy Post Attesting to an Awesome Life

Happy Thursday! Let me please start off by saying "THANK YOU" for all of the amazing feedback, comments and emails from yesterday's post. You guys are absolutely incredible. I know that things will work out and I have your encouragement to keep me in check.

With that, I have ended my one month hiatus from Facebook and am back into the "social" world. Yesterday I was going through a bunch of my old tagged pictures and realized.. "I have had a pretty awesome life". That is the one good thing from Facebook. You have a picture record of all the awesome moments of your life. So I decided to take a bunch of my favorites and make a "Mini Scrapbook Post". 
Please note, this is going to be EXTREMELY cheesy, and it'll be awesome. I feel like we should be playing Vitamin C's Graduation/Friend's Forever song in the background. Too much? Yes.

So without further adieu... Enjoy the CHEESIEST, Awesomest post attesting that, "Yah... Life gets hard, but it freakin rocks"

Trials

So.... Here's the deal lately. I'm sorry. I'm sorry for being a bad blogger, for only writing about the superficial lately, for not putting my true self out there. The thing is, everyone has a certain angle with what they write about to complete how they want to portray their blog.
When I started this blog, I told myself I would write about life, put my whole self out there - especially the bad. I would be real and genuine because this was the one place I could put my true self out there. I wanted that to be my angle. It's funny how its easier to tell a stranger the deeper parts of yourself.
But for some reason I lost sight of that, and I'm sorry. For those of you who enjoy the simple, everyday Pinterest pictures and fashion ideas, this might not be the go to place to always get that. Yes, occasionally I will submit those posts as I enjoy them as the next person, but I want/ need to start getting real again.

Life isn't perfect. We can portray it as such, and there are wonderful moments in time where it is, but it doesn't always last. I graduated with a Business Degree in December 2010. Landed and AMAZING first job with an IT company as a consultant for the CDC... as in Center for Disease Control and Prevention. Talk about a lucky break. I prided myself in telling people I was a consultant for the CDC and loved to watch their reaction of impressed, raised eyebrows and "Good for you, wow"s. I loved that my parents bragged about their daughter with the big job right out of college who made lots of money... Well here's the reality.

Due to my lack of due diligence and watchful eye, there was a problem with my health insurance. Last November, as many of you might remember, I had a crazy, awful knee injury that included ambulance and hospital. I am fine today but my bank account is not. It's funny how one little thing can set you back financially for years. Overall, it was about $6,000. And I'm still paying it off. I had 3 weeks until I would have been fully covered again, but the damage was done.

Today, with my company being consultants for the Government - we have to re-bid on our contracts after a certain time period has passed. After re-bidding, losing out to another company, protesting the loss of the award, and being denied again due to political agendas and peer-favoritism, our company is at a stand still with CDC consultants. So in short? I am forced to look for a new job.

Gratefully, I have some time until I am technically "laid-off" and I am blessed with an amazing mentor who has been looking out for me since day one. But the process is stressful and downright makes me dizzy and sick to my stomach. I stress over becoming a statistic of today's economy.

With this, I find myself mad, angry and stressed. But in these moments I have to remind myself. I do not live to work. I work to live. And this is but a small trial and I will get through this. I can let this experience make me bitter, mean, and hardened, or I can learn from it and let it make me a stronger and wiser woman. I am choosing the latter as hard as it is.

And lastly, I am dealing with the loss of a relationship, a first love and a best friend. We do not talk, and each day is hard. I know this is for the best right now and feel in my heart that our paths are not meant to be parallel right now. Our roads came to a point where we both needed to take separate paths and become who we were meant to be. The hardest part is not the romantic loss, but the loss of your confidant, your best friend, your equal, and the person who was by your side for the greater portion of your life and upbringing. But I know with all my heart that its for the best right now.

So there you have it, my life is not perfect. I have good days and bad days. But I am happy, even with this. And this too shall pass.

Just Write - A Few Deep Thoughts

There is something so beautiful, poetic and simplistic about the moments one has to themselves in evaluating who they truly are. Do I know my own self? Am I who I thought I'd turn out to be? Am I who I want to be?
The answers to these are forever changing. Sometimes we ignore, sometimes we pursue.
We all have our inner monologues that are continually moving throughout the day and through the moments just before a deep sleep. I am moved and humbled by the moments where these thoughts can be stilled and quieted, and take in a deep breath of heart touching beauty that stills the soul and makes us gasp for breath - there is beauty in that moment that so rarely occurs. So often do I find myself having simple moments like this though, where my mind and soul are quieted by the simple beauties of the world, or people, and random strangers.

A dad smiles to his little daughter, a genuine smile by a stranger that stays with you, a random act  of kindness I receive from someone I will never see again, a tree that sits still in bloom and watches over those who walk by while the wind is the only sound that beholds the ears.

These are moments where I daydream to myself of all the beautiful possibilities this life has to offer. I dont think about my moment of hurt, of tragedy, loss, or of tears. I dont think of all the wrong, hate and injustices of the world, or drift to the pessimistic thoughts and nature of men.

I think of the beauty of the sky and how fortunate I am to have pure air in my lungs, that smile that warmed my cold heart, the laughter of a child nearby, a hug from your father, a misspoken word from a child learning how to speak that renders an uncontrollable smile. I am forever grateful for the realness of the so few. The ones who put their true selves out there and not just a facade of a perfect life. Life isn't perfect, but the moments we stand again after we have been crushed down, those are still and perfect moments that can never be taken away.

I think of what I want to do with my life and what my heart desires to be when I grow up even though I am considered so by most. Their are infinite possibilities with this cherished gift we have been given. So often I forget as such, this each day is a gift. There is beauty all around. There is hope, there is good. There is realness, strength warmth, and happiness to be obtained.

these are the moments I want to live in forever.

Brothers: $1

It is amazing what you can get an 8 and 5 year old to do with the bribe of $1. On Saturday, I got to spend some time with the Family and practice shooting in FULL MANUAL mode and finally apply what I had learned from my Photography class. Dialogue as follows:

Me: Tanner, Spencer! Come outside with me, I want to take some pictures of you.

Tanner and Spencer (dragging their feet): Okay... But YOU have to find my shoes!

4 minutes later...

Tanner: I'm bored, can we go inside? I'm in the middle of my Star Wars Lego Build!
Spencer: Heavy Sighing

Me: Okay.... If you guys cooperate, and listen to me when I say "Smile" and "look at me", then I will give you $1 whole dollar each for your time!

Spencer and Tanner (gasping): $1 dollar!? Well what if we do it for 20 minutes... do we get $2? and 30 minutes.. $3 dollars?

Me: Yup!

6 minutes in....


Tanner: Okay.. I'm fine with just one dollar.

Hope you enjoy!

The Return of Letters

*Dear Gym, I missed you. I am so glad we are friends once again. Even better? Because I declared you as my new BFF, I got a FREE personal training session. Guess what? He worked out my upper body in just half an hour.... And then... I couldnt drive home. Literally, picture swerving into lanes because my arms were shaking. Thus, I have opted to drive with my knee when possible. 
Love, A dedicated friend

*Dear Media, Please stop "sexualizing" the younger generations. You are the reason why we have stupid shows like "16 and Pregnant", "Teenage Mom", and rising teen pregnancies and teen STDs. Yes, I fully respect the hard lives of these women. But why do you now condone children having children. Why can't this younger generation be granted a wonderful and ignorant childhood as they deserve? Why are you trying to make 15-17 year olds act like they are in their mid 20s? You should be ashamed of yourselves. It should not be right for sex to be so prevalent in teenage shows aimed towards highschoolers. Is nothing sacred to you? Its different for adult programs and audiences, but ABC "Family"? We should not have to be already thinking about this conversation when it comes to my 8 year old brother. 

Dear Scramble with Friends, You are awesome and I love you. The end. (LindsayNicoleee if you're obsessed too)

Dear Little Sister, Yesterday you turned 18! What? You're legal now? No... You're still 6 in my mind. You are so beautiful and talented and I am proud to be called your big sister. You are such an example to me and I love your realness and self assurance. ps... You are hilarious and make the most epic impressions.

Dear Facebook, it has been almost a month since I deleted you, and it feels so good. I know I will probably come back soon, but until then, it has been so nice focusing on my own life rather than obsessing too much over other's. 

Dear Past Two Weeks, Where have you gone? I know I have been preoccupied (okay fully MIA) due to this new position... But I don't think it's fair that you completely pass me by without my knowledge. Heck.

*Dear Little Ones Whom I used to be a Camp Counselour and Church Leader To,
You're getting MARRIED!? Wait what? I used to babysit you, you just graduated high school! I feel old! Should I have a kid by now? I'm so confused...

Dear Life, Even though I don't give you enough credit, you are fantastically awesome.  

*Finally, Dear This Guy in the Video Below, You are AWESOME. I wish I could move like you, you made my whole day and my cheeks are still hurting from this. Love, an old enough person to watch this video.

Coloring My Life

I have been such a bad blogger. I apologize. Well to explain, I started a new position with my job! I am gaining a ton of experience but have had a huge learning curve... And last week it was all put to the test. What am I doing? Bore Factor: I am now, along with a lot of my past responsibilities, a Technical Writer helping in the development and writing for Government Proposals for our consulting firm. Ugh. Last week was a blur with work til 3 am and sleeping on my kitchen table. It wasn't pretty. Drool is meant for the pillow.

But This weekend I got to participate in Atlanta's COLOR RUN! Stay tuned for some awesomeness. I had SUCH a blast. Easter weekend was amazing minus and Meniere's episode :( . Well I also DID MY FIRST "RACE" since my Knee Injury and granted it wasnt my best performance, but I still had a blast. See? Oh and it also died my hair PINK so I am rocking the Avril Lavigne look this week. Be jealous, I'm totally professional at work now.

Yah, some awesome awesomeness. Easter was also pretty wonderful - I was able to spend it with some amazing family and loved ones and be reminded from my incredible Father's Easter talk that the knowledge we have of God and his teachings is "Good News" and no matter what trial or hardship we are going through in life, we have the Lord and His "Good News" and our pain can be mitigated through the atonement of our Savior. I hope you all had a happy and bright Easter weekend and were reminded of its true meaning. Through the atonement and sacrifice of our Savior, we can all return to the Lord's Kingdom.

Happy Friday Lovelies! What a crazy week this has been. I have literally spent nights up til 3 AM working, have looked at the clock and had 5 hours pass by without even knowing... It has been crazy. But today I have a SPECIAL treat for you. Please meet my TOP SPONSOR Elise!

This woman is amazing. You will be seeing her a lot here through out the month as she is my top sponsor. I had the opportunity of going to college with her and she is a freakin blast. Not to mention, she would let me break into her apartment through her window just to borrow clothes when she wasnt home. So.. Please meet Elise with some awesome Spring Rejuvenation advice. I actually read this last night and then spent like 2! hours purging and re-organizing my WHOLE closet and now I feel SO much better. So please meet ELISE!!


SPR-1-1

Hey! I’m Elise and I blog over at “that’s comma with a k.” a page full of totally random posts about
my life as a wife [who rarely has dinner prepared] ,stay-at-home mommy [who spends most of
her day cleaning up soggy gold fish, thinking about doing the laundry, & blogging in sweats! I can
promise you that my hair and make-up is done though, and yes, I’m fully aware that I have big hair…
I do it on purpose & I’m totally okay with it!], and a total wanna-be-runner training for 10k [I think I
can, I think I can, I know I can!] I’m pretty sure I have absolutely no business writing a blog, except
for the fact that I need a place to put all of the 230952803958 pictures of my boys. Oh! And because
sometimes I think I’m pretty funny and feel the need to share my daily adventure with anyone who
will listen! [hopefully that’s you!]

When Lindsay asked me to write a little something something about some “purging” tips, I was

taken back to the lovely days when I knew Linds in college & she would sneak in through my

window, early in the morning, wake me up to tell me good-morning, borrow my clothes, and then

head out the way she came in! A few years later & states away, we are still friends and still love

each other’s fashion.

Now, about that color coordinated closet of mine… [not at all perfect, but I try!]

Photobucket

I used to find “spring cleaning” a nasty chore, and by spring cleaning, I’m talking about going

through the clothes in my closet. I thought of it as flat out, just emotionally difficult. I’m one of

those girls that if someone were to recall an event or date from 2,3,4 years ago, I could tell you

exactly what I was wearing. As silly as it sounds, clothes have a funny way of tugging at our

heart strings and emotions right?!

But somewhere along the way, it has become something I look forward to. Something I like to

call “purging into spring!” Once it became something that I did every year, I started to share

my “purging” tips with friends, and over the years I’ve come up with a little list of three essential

rules that I have to live by [or nothing will get done]. I hate to burst some bubbles, but I am by

no means an expert in organization, purging, closet space…none of that! I’m just a girl who isn’t

about to let an old, two sizes too small, out-dated, tight shirt put a kink in my day, or depress me

for the week!

one.

DRESS FOR NOW! I’m not opposed to hanging onto “skinny clothes” for

some needed motivation [guilty as charged] but really, let’s not keep it all. It’s just not

necessary! I’ve had to take this to heart, especially after having a child. I’m pretty sure

that I don’t need Hollister written, stretched across my chest [which probably should

have never happened] and I certainly don’t need

two. If you haven’t worn something in a year then out it goes! No questions asked.

Regardless of price, condition, or its size. Why is a year the magic time?! Because

whether you realize it, you have just covered every season in that period of time! If you

haven’t worn it during the year, lets be honest… you probably never will. I’ve come to

the conclusion [and so should you] “Me and this “just in case” business…we are done!”

When I purged a few weeks ago, I’m sad to admit that I pulled 15+ shirts from my closet,

with tags still left on them…

Photobucket

[I should probably have a “giveaway”…anyone interested!? Ha.]

most bought more than 6 months ago! That’s telling me a few things…either I don’t

get dressed in “normal” clothes enough, I have a bad shopping habit [yes, I think

there is such thing], or I wore the shirt with the tag left on….none of which are good

things…donate or consignment pile they went!

three. When going through your closet… Try everything on. UGGG I know… I’ve

never been one to love this rule, but I’ve learned, and re-learned, and now I can’t stress

it enough! Do not hold something up and say “oh this is so cute, I have to keep it.” I

read a quote once “Sometimes we linger way too long in something that’s not working

because we hope things will change and get better”…women and relationships?!

Clothes in your closets?! I’m seeing a pattern….Stop it right now & get rid of it!

Overwhelming!? It’s okay, because you are going to remember to have some fun. I

know it sounds a little lame, but seriously. Turn your music up loud, sing and dance

your little heart out, do a fashion show for goodness sake!


Thank you for letting me spend a little bit of your day with you! I had a blast! If you need

a little break from your closet [or life in general], come on by, visit, & follow me at the

blog!

Spring Rejuvenation - Part 2 - Yoga Fitness from Gaby

Hello Lovelies! Hope you enjoyed yesterday's first part of Spring Rejuvenation from Erin. Today I have some more awesomeness on getting ready for the Spring season with some amazing Yoga and Fitness from the lovely and oh so talented Gaby. This chick is seriously one of my favorite blogging buddies and she is so awesome and incredible. So without further adieu.... Meet Gaby!



SPR-1


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~`




Hi Lindsay's friends! My name is Gaby and I blog over at This Little Port. I'm a Sydney based yoga teacher, yoga practitioner, crafter, baker, and blogger. Today I'm here to share with you some yoga inspiration for spring.
So... when you think of spring your mind probably jumps straight to spring cleaning. It's usually a time of year when we feel energized and excited to take on new projects and get organized. And while the world around you is going through a transformation, it's a good time to acknowledge that your physical body is also going through a time of transition.
Here, I'll share with you some poses that aim specifically to detoxify the body, but also the mind and spirit. I would recommend doing some kind of a warm up beforehand. This is a great youtube video that will guide through a sequence of 10 warm-up poses, called 'the magic 10' in Jivamukti Yoga (Posted at the bottom) After that, if you're familiar with sun salutes, it'd be a good idea to do 5 rounds. This pdf has photos of 2 types of Ashtanga sun salutes.
* disclaimer - always be careful when practicing without a yoga teacher present. Go slow and if something hurts, stop!

1. Prasarita Padottanasa

From a standing position, step the feet out wide and bring the outside edges of the feet parallel with the short edges of your mat. Starting with your hands on your hips, inhale to arch the back gently and look up, as you exhale fold forward and lower your hands to the mat. Keeping the spine long begin to walk your hands back in line with your feet for more of a stretch. Hold for 5 breaths.

2. Parivritta Padottanasana

From Prasarita Padottanasa, bring your left hand on the mat, underneath the forehead. Press it down into the floor or on to a book or a block if you don't reach the floor. On an inhale, ground down through your left hand and as you exhale, begin to reach your right arm up for a twist. Keep your hips square and your legs engaged. Hold for 5 breaths then swap sides.

3. Ardha Matsyendrasana

To come into this pose, sit with both legs out in front of you. Bend your right knee and step your foot over your left thigh. Stay here with your left leg still straight out in front of you, or bend your left knee so that your left foot comes to your right hip as in the photo above. Make sure you're not sitting on top of your feet; if you are, keep the bottom leg extended. Inhale your left arm straight up, on an exhale twist to your right and hug or hook your right knee with your left arm. Hold for 5 breaths then swap sides.
A note on twists from the book The Spirit of Yoga:

"Twists work in many ways. For instance, they adjust the spine, tone the spinal nerves, and ease stomach ailments by stretching the inner digestive organs. They are also wonderful detoxifiers as they wring the old blood from the spine, recharging it with fresh sustenance."

It's precisely because of this detoxifying quality that we should do lots of twists when it's springtime!
4. Setu bandasana

Lie on your back with your arms by your side, palms of the hands facing down. Bend your knees so they're pointing up and bring your feet to inner hip distance (not as wide as you think!). Your ankles should be right below your knees (do as I say not as I do, ahem...). On an inhale, slowly begin to roll up the spine vertebrae by vertebrae. Leave your hands as they are or interlace them behind your back, drawing your shoulder blades closer together. Hold for 5 breaths, and repeat 3 times. Be careful not to turn your head from side to side!

5. Tarasana

Sit down with the soles of your feet together and your knees out to the side. Reach the feet farther away from you until you can grab your shin bones with extended arms when you sit upright. And here's the best part... Melt your body down over your legs, really just let it all hang out. Let your spine round, let your head be heavy, have your arms wherever is comfortable. Hold for 5 breaths.

6. Viparita karani

In English, we call this pose legs up the wall, which pretty much explains what we're going for :) All you have to do, is bring both of your legs up a wall, making sure that your sit bones and your legs are touching the wall. Bring your arms by your sides with your palms facing up and close your eyes.
Fun fact about this: karani means attitude, and as it doesn't end with 'asana' like all of the other poses it isn't actually a pose. Rather, it's an attitude. Viparita means reversing. Therefore this pose means 'reversing attitudes.' So if you're ever feeling down, all you need to do is chuck your legs up a wall for a while. You can hang out here for as long as you want, but make sure to stay for at least 5 minutes.
Finally, rest in savasana for 10 minutes.
Happy spring!




-Lindsay here, hope you enjoyed Part 2 of Spring Rejuvenation - Yoga and Fitness. Til tomorrow! We have another guest post from the lovely Elise with some Spring de-purging and self organization. Happy Thursday!

Spring Rejuvenation - Part 1 - Fashion from Erin

Hey there all you lovely people who read this little blog here! Today I am bringing some Spring rejuvenation to you. For the rest of the week, I am doing a feature on getting ready for the spring season with fashion, fitness, life organization, and a surprise.
People say that the new year is a time for new beginnings and fresh starts. Well, for me- the procrastinator of the century - I like to hold off until spring to do that. Spring cleaning has a whole different meaning to me than most people. So hope you guys enjoy whats in store for the rest of the week!


SPR-1

Today I am bringing you Spring FASHION from the lovely Erin of Living In Yellow. This chica is freaking awesome, hilarious, and has a closet to die for. Seriously, I want to steal everything in there. So please meet Erin, read on, and enjoy!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Well hello there pretty things.
My name is Erin and I blog over at Living In Yellow.
A place where I like to keep things pretty lighthearted and funny.
Sure I may talk about the occasional serious topics like how my stomach can hold the size of China or how I would implement nap time into our society if I was President, but usually it is about less important items.
You can learn everything you need to know about me and more by clicking here.
Just don’t click there yet or that would kinda ruin the remainder of the post.
Now Lindsay asked me to share with you wonderful ladies a few things that make me happy about Spring’s arrival.
I could have just made this post easy and responded with one word “everything” but that would have made for a really sucky post.
And I am not about to suck it up.
Or maybe I am?
You be the judge.
Really though, my heart belongs to Spring.
My allergies do not.
But my heart totally does.
Let’s take a look at what makes this little heart of mine explode with happiness shall we?
The obvious and most important--
Spring clothes.
Hello color, so nice to have you back in my life.
Next up, sunshine.
My favorite vitamin is the one with the letter D.
And I am a pretty big fan of being lazy.
Combine Vitamin D and being lazy and you have one set of tan legs.
Moving on, motorcycle rides.
Ladies, just because you ride on a motorcycle does not mean you need to look like mean muscular female who growls at people as they walk by.
Heels and one shoulder silky tops are totally appropriate.
So gangsta I know.
Plus, the helmet is ultra sexy in an astronaut type of way.
Flowers.
They are just pretty.
And I love pretty.
You know what else is pretty.
Sunrises and Sunsets.
Oh baby, get in my belly.
That was weird.
I more so meant get in my life.
And last but not least, cocktails.
Yes.
Not just any cocktails though.
Keylime Pie Martinis Lakeside.
That’s where its at homies.
So tell me..what is your favorite thing about Spring?
And after you do that, come and visit me over here.
I think me you and are going to get along just fine.
Thanks Lindsay for having me.
You are the most adorable thing under the sun.
Love.


-Lindsay here. I'm telling you, this girl is amazing. Thanks for reading and go check Erin out! Stay tuned tomorrow to hear from Gaby from This Little Port! 'til tomorrow! Have a fantastic Spring day!
