People let me tell you ’bout my best friend
I had a discussion the other day about friendships. Old friendships and new friends…best friends and acquaintances. I feel so lucky to have friends that have been by my side for years and years now. Take my friend Christina for instance. We’ve known each other for 15 years; through boyfriends, breakups, living across the country, good … Continue reading
How Did I Get Here?
When I was in elementary school, I used to tell my parents that I was going to live in a purple motor home in the Carmel High School parking lot and work as a cashier at O’Malia’s as a profession. I don’t know why being a grocery store cashier sounded like so much fun, but … Continue reading
Make Love, Not Babies
As long as I can remember, I’ve never wanted to have kids. I was never really a babysitter when I was younger, it just wasn’t my thing. I was a lifeguard, and that was hard enough having to be around kids at the pool all day. When I think about little kids, all I can … Continue reading
For the past couple of weeks, I’ve been living like a middle-aged woman. I’ve been going to bed early, staying in on the weekends and buying lots of presents for kids’ birthdays. Sunday Fundays used to mean bar-hopping for day drinking, tailgating Colts games or going on summer bike booze cruises down the Monon Trail. … Continue reading

What would you do with one extra hour of time per day?
Okay all of you Saved By The Bell fans, you know what I’m talking about. There’s just never enough time. Don’t freak out like Jessie Spano and start popping caffeine pills. Just breathe! But seriously, what would you do with one extra hour of time per day? There’s so many things I say I want to … Continue reading
Workin on my Fitness
This morning, I woke up early (8:00 am, which is early to me…don’t judge) and went to the gym. I haven’t been the best at keeping up a workout routine, and by that, I mean I haven’t been to the gym in five months. When I hurt my back, I went to use the pool … Continue reading
It’s Chilly, Time for Chili!
I’ve been attempting the perfect pot of chili for quite some time now. Every pot I make always tastes different, but not amazing. I’ve scoured Pinterest and picked the brains of my faithful Tweeps, and I think I’ve finally perfected my own signature chili recipe. Ingredients: 2 pounds ground beef Beer of your choice (I … Continue reading
Is Customer Service Dead?
Let’s talk a bit about customer service, shall we? As a business, I feel as though you should try to please loyal customers. I’m not talking about giving away free stuff or treating them like royalty, but simply keeping them happy. These return customers obviously have money and want to spend that hard-earned money with … Continue reading
