For the first time in what feels like forever I'm wide aware of the many blessings in my life, and that feels really fucking awesome. The last couple of years have been dark. I struggled with a seemingly endless tunnel of depression, and as a result clouded my own views and perceptions of my life. This year it's really hit me how incredibly thankful I am.
I have an awesome dude.
I have an awesome job.
I live in an awesome town (in the off seasons lol).
I'm not hungry.
I have three fluffy butts that love me.
Yesterday we made our second big ticket purchase together and splurged (not really thanks to Black Friday Deals) on a new stove. Ours hasn't latched in over three years, and we just sort of ghetto-rig it together whenever we need to bake anything, so this is a total dorky adult moment.
We've been planning a lot of renovations around here and I'm excited to finally get the house looking like my version of magazine living. I've been playing around on Polyvore and put together a little inspiration board for what I'm planning for our living room.
Words cannot begin to explain how excited I am to have laminate wood floors going in!! I'm finishing up the black accent wall this week after many months of procrastination. We originally painted it an eggshell/satiny finish, and unfortunately, old walls = lots of blemishes and imperfections, so hopefully flat paint will make a much cleaner presentation.
Are you planning any fun holiday renovations or remodels?

Every now and then we take advantage of where we live and stroll down to the bay when we go on Liver's walk. There were a few divers out taking advantage of the clear water, but from these photos you would think we had the whole beach to ourselves.
This year my boss threw a Halloween Party and asked me to help with the spread. I went a little white girl overboard on Pinterest with the menu, but it's a good thing because we had our share of Pinterest Fails.. *cough* anything with a face *cough*..
I wasn't able to capture the best pics due to the fact that I left my DSLR at home, but I snapped some photos on my iPhone before everything was demolished.
Lately my boss and I have been getting into some deep discussions on a wide variety of topics mostly stemming around punk ideologies. Long story short after I started telling him the other day in a sort of excusal manner that I had already gone the morning meat free, he called me on my shit and challenged me to go 30 days minimum.
So far it's been 4 days, and holy shit is my system cleaning out. Read between the italicized lines and take pity on my toilet.
I'm quickly realizing that my normal starch and fatty foods rich diet isn't going to cut it without the normal excessive amount of protein I usually eat to compensate; so in an effort to balance out I've been researching vegetarian diet plans and planning on trying some high protein recipes that are low on murder and torture (infographic).
