Sometimes life can get a little hectic. In between working with two preteen boys and running my own business, I sometimes forget to take care of myself. There's laundry to be done, cars to maintain, and homes to clean, not to mention food preparation because well, a girl's gotta eat. It can all get a little cray and overwhelming at times. When this happens, I just remind myself that it's totally ok to unplug and breathe. Take some time for myself to tune out the world and center myself. My favorite way includes a hot bath, then some snuggle time in my panda pajamas, while giving all of my attention to a pizza and a silly Kate Hudson movie. Ahhh now I'm fully recharged. Ready to plug back in!

I hope you are enjoying your Sunday Funday! What are some things that you like to do to unplug and breathe? Feel free to comment and share below!

Dating diaries tidbit: Chivalry for the win

I was taking out my trash and a little old man came up to me and told me that I could NOT be taking out my own trash... he thought that it was just wrong. I was in shock that a perfect stranger who was a good 30-40 years older than me wanted to make the kind gesture of being chivalrous. I almost argued with him about it... Keyword being almost...

Moral of the story, there are still kind and thoughtful men out there in this world. Chivalry for the win! Until next time, XOXO

S'more to love

Every year without fail one of the kid's I work with decides to surprise me with a regifted Valentine from one of his classmates. It is the sweetest gesture and I truly appreciate it from the bottom of my heart.

I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's day filled with chocolate and little reminders of love from the special people in your lives.

For part 2 of my bestie's birthday celebration, (If you missed part one, you can get the deets here) She wanted to do an Escape room. Not just any escape room, the hardest one that there is... with only a 19% success rate. Thanks to the folks at Amazing Escape Room we were able to make her birthday wish come true.

It was my first time playing this here little escape game and I'm not going to lie, I wasn't much help! It was really tough! I took on the roll of team cheerleader. Thanks to my amazing teammates, we managed to crack the codes and escape our room with a minute and 30 seconds to spare! Not a second too soon, because let me just tell you, the fresh air was the ultimate prize! I also learned a valuable lesson, I would not do well on "Survivor" or "The Amazing Race". But if you need a labor coach or someone to root for you during your gym workout or soccer game, I'm your girl!

Happy Birthday Sara! XOXO

Kings of Leon at the Forum - Walls Tour

My bestie's birthday is today, February 1st. We decided to get a jump on celebrating, so this past weekend, I took her to see one of our favorite's.... King's of Leon! They were playing at the Forum in Inglewood. After an hour and a half in an Uber (this is L.A., contrary to what they say in "Clueless" everything in L.A. does NOT take 20 minutes), we arrived and were ready to "Use somebody" Haha, see what I did there?!

We had a blast! The band was awesome. It was the last show of the tour and literally like Sex on fire! Caleb's solo rendition of "Walls" was so powerful and beautiful. My best friend could hardly take it.. as you can see in the recap of my snapchat story... Oh, and don't ask about the pickle jars.. Apparently it's a thing in Tennessee that my bestie just couldn't get over!  If you do follow me on snap: StarrJoy1, you know what I'm talkin about!..... Happy Birthday Sara!!
