Here We Go 

Well, I got the running bug again. I am going to try to incorporate strength training for the first time. This schedule is tentative, but OKC Memorial Half is the goal with a 10 minute pace goal. 

Let me tell you about the Birds and the Bees

Since I have moved into the Gingerbread House I have had a series of critter adventures. Opossums, groundhogs, spiders, bees, wasps . . . but none have been more terrifying than the sparrows. If you know me at all, you probably know I have an irrational fear of birds (I love owls though). I blame…

My Name is Kaelin, and I am a racist

Ok, as a bleeding heart liberal it pains me to say this, but as a white female I know this is true in some form. I am a racist. I stereotype. I make judgments about a person’s intent based on his or her appearance. I do my best not to, but I do. I have…

Number 39 – Eat Cake for Breakfast

I enjoy frivolity. The Kate Spade ‘Eat Cake for Breakfast’ mug embodies my type of frivolity in the most concise way possible. A pretty, pricey coffee vessel that expresses my life philosophy. Unnecessary but super coveted. First, it is Kate Spade . . . and, I pretty much adore all things Kate Spade from purses…

The Other Side

I woke up anxious this morning. Days like this are the worst because I cannot sit still, but I cannot engage people comfortably. My heart races. I feel like my chest and ribs might implode. The anxiety is crushing. I cry. I shake. I pace. I will take baths and try to sleep. I will…

Number 2 – Boudoir photos

Boudoir Photo Shoot  Completed, mama got brave 12/11/2015   Number 2 on my 40 x 40 list was a boudoir photo shoot, partially because I have been wanting to do one forever but waiting until I looked a certain way. Then a friend with a photography business made an offer I couldn’t refuse. Besides, why…
