Lent 2018

I feel like I get on here every year and talk about Lent and I feel like I give up the same things every year.  That has to change this year.  I keep giving up things that I know I’m gon’ run right back to after Lent because…well…I want them.  So in an effort not to deny myself, I’m not doing that this year.  I’m actually going to give up something that I really want to get rid of so that I’m more likely to let it stay gone and that’s clutter. I’ve done pieces of this in the last few years and gotten rid of items but it wasn’t...

Sassafras Restaurant Review – NOLA

So, I was running around on Thursday morning and I knew that I was not going to have time to get together something to bring for lunch.  This is almost a tragedy for me because there isn’t much around my job especially that’s quick and fits into my diet plan.  I was just going to go get some nachos or something.  I decided to message my coworker and ask had she brought lunch.  She had.  DANG! But wait…It’s 11am…she doesn’t want her lunch she brought.  So, we decide that we are going to run out of her and go get some lunch.  After quickly looking around because I want fish...

Addicted to Audible

Hello My Loves, I’m going to make a controversial statement. I boycotted reading long ago.  Well boycotted is a strong word but I mean it’s true.  I was an avid reader when I was growing up and there came a point when some of the best literary works to my young mind were going to be made into movies.  I was more than excited.  I was overjoyed. As we now know, I had just set myself up to be disappointed – devastated even.  I decided that what was the point of reading these beautiful works if people would just RUIN THEM recklessly.  So I boycotted.  Over time, my attention span got...

Mardi Gras Parades

So today, I went to my first Mardi Gras parade at my job.  As you may or may not know, Parade season starts long before the day of Mardi Gras down here.  You have parades for weeks.  It’s an all-around good time as long as you don’t get caught in the traffic and road closures.  Or in my case a downpour.  I decided to head out to the parade and me and my oxygen met up with some coworkers.  That’s when the sprinkles started.  I mean I had done my due diligence and called down to weather dot com to see when the rain festivities were planned to start and...

My Chicken Levels are Low

So, as you all know I’ve been on this Vegan-ish thing lately.  I’m not even sure what to call it because it’s not a challenge and it’s not a phase. I guess I’m just trying to incorporate some more plant-based items into my diet and not be so reliant on meat and my typical meals. I’m also trying to avoid falling into the Vegan rabbit hole.  I still like me a hot piece of chicken and bacon…I love bacon…every now and then.  However, once I haven’t had something in a while then I kind of lose a taste for it and don’t necessarily want to eat it again because of DIGESTIVE ISSUES. ...

Vegan•ish: Gardein Chick’n Sliders

Fake meat…man…I’m ashamed. Before doing this faux vegan/vegan-ish/really vegetarian with a side of pescatarian and bacon, I could not understand for the life of me the fake meat thing.  A few people I know have been vegetarian or light vegan so I’ve seen a few different options.  I would forever be like “nah”.  Now…I’m here to eat my words and this fake chick’n. So one day a couple weeks ago we had some faux snow down here in good ol’ Louisiana. So EVERYTHING was shut down.  This was one of my first weeks going full vegetarian/vegan for 5 days a week.  Yea I started off saying I would be vegan...

Paying Bills Sucks

It’s like the anticipation of Christmas morning but like in reverse.  It’s a reaping of sorts…like Hunger Games…you know it’s coming and you’re used to it but man is it cruel.  Every time the end of the month comes the first is looking at you like you better have my SHIT! And by shit…it means…bi**h better have my money.  It’s time to pay bills! Let me be the first to say that I’m THANKFUL that I can pay my bills but that doesn’t mean I want to.  That’s like after I ram my toe into the dresser when I’m sleep drunk going to the bathroom and saying “be grateful you...
