Day 44 of the M&M Challenge… Before I spill my guts ~ I feel a little self-conscious about this post. I have no earthly idea if anyone will even remotely relate to this. But for some reason, here I am, digressing way too much… Here are my latest, new discoveries: 1. Oh man, it takes a village. A village of apps and notifications, alarms and … Continue reading Day 44/365.
Buying or selling a house is such an emotional time for everyone. I love to help people in their hour of need, so it’s no small wonder that I love being a realtor. And while I hope my 1st buyers never leave their home (it’s that beautiful), I know they’ll call on me to help sell their house, should the need arise. NOT because I’m … Continue reading Closing Gift Chocolate Chip Cookies.
I’ve tried to write this post for five days now, and every time I start, I get lost in a million thoughts. I don’t want these to be too long and laborious, and I definitely don’t want them to be a play-by-play of all the amaaaaahzing things I’ve learned and accomplished ~ brag brag brag, or even worse, all the crap things that have happened … Continue reading Day 34/365.
Rough week for the good ole M&M challenge. M&M’s…I hardly knew ye. I won’t bore you with the ugly details of my week. Let’s just say that I was too sick to lift the remote, so I watched back-to-back episodes of House Hunters International, until I was 100% convinced that packing my bags and moving to sunny Croatia was my only option. I came to … Continue reading Day 22.
Day 15 of the M&M challenge, and here’s what I’ve learned so far: 1. Crossing those four M’s off the list is probably never going to be a routine that looks the exact same way every day for me. My life is so incredibly different every day, and I’m the reason why. I mean, DUH. I’m a musician, an online voice teacher, and a real … Continue reading Day 15
We have fallen in love with a homemade pizza crust. I think my friend Amy told me about this one a long time ago, but I was still gluten-free at the time. (Didn’t you tell me about this one, Amy?) This is from the Pioneer Woman ~ who is not my favorite cook in the whole world, but seriously, she should win the Nobel Peace … Continue reading Homemade Pizza.
Sheesh! The days are flying by! Each day of this challenge has been totally different. Some days, I accomplish all four M’s like a little soldier, and all before 10am. It’s as if they are the easiest four habits in the world. Other days…well…it might take me all day, or I might not even get one accomplished. But the fact that those four M’s have … Continue reading Day 10.
Day 5 has been ROUGH. Not rough because the M&M’s are hard ~ rough because LIFE IS HARD. And the M&M’s are supposed to help buffer that difficulty just a bit. But it’s pretty hard to get those M’s in when you’re at rock bottom. (Except actual M&M’s, of course). But these wonderful M’s might help you out of rock bottom, Pixy! VICIOUS CYCLE. Anyone … Continue reading Day 5.
Here we go, kids! It’s August 1, and I am so ready. I’m nervous, I’m unsure of myself, and I’m definitely feeling that discomfort that comes just before I say negative things to myself, and quit. NOT THIS TIME! I’m going to push through this time ~ to the NEXT LEVEL! I’m treating this day, August 1st, as a new year. One year of … Continue reading Day 1: M&M’s
Oh friends, I TOLD you. I TOLD you I would add more to the list. The three M’s are about to expand to four. I forgot. Forgive me. I almost didn’t want to bother you all with this, but my friend Liz (Hi, Liz!) just told me she wanted to add an M! Then I thought, “Well, now I’ve gotta do it!” It was a … Continue reading ONE MORE M?
