I’ve been a Moody B (that can both stand for my name and a less nice word) all week. I am not even going to think about the Parks and Rec finale because then I will just LOSE it. So here are seven things that helped me continue to fuel my Moody B-ness this week: 1. This… Continue reading seven things that choked me up this week
Taking on some challenging practices for Lent has really cut into my blogging time, and Whole30 still has my brain in a bit of a fog. Or maybe it’s just that I forgot how to meal plan and thinking about eating more than take-out has been occupying some mental space for me. In any case,… Continue reading ode on a waterski pyramid
I know, crazy, talking about me. On this blog. Which basically is just me talking about… me. I’m thinking about moving my blog to another host site (Squarespace, maybe?) and in research end up reading about blogging best practices. One keeps coming up: have a vision for what your blog is about. Yeah, I don’t… Continue reading let’s talk about me
Ugh, guys. Reminded of this right now. Kayla Mueller, Deah Shaddy Barakat, Yusor Mohammed, and Razan Mohammed Abu-Salha were all young, peaceful, engaged, faith-filled people. We need more of those kind of people in the world. It is tragic to lose even one of them, under any circumstances. I want to spend my Lent focusing on… Continue reading embracing lent in a bleak world
I’m 25, single, it’s about to be Valentine’s Day, and I have to say I don’t mind it a bit. NO PRESSURE. Probably going to go see Selma on Saturday night, alone, and eat a gigantic popcorn for dinner with a big Sprite. Treat yoself. That doesn’t mean I don’t still love some internet love… Continue reading a little romance
Instead, I did this for roughly an hour. THIS IS NEXT LEVEL STUFF HERE.

(Both these plants live in my apartment. I swear that ficus is just dormant. It’s going to come back!!) In the meantime,… Continue reading february-is-depressing antidotes
Today, my friend Joyce posted on her blog about her issues with winter skin. Now, I’m not sure I believe her completely, as she is currently living in Southern California, but we’ll give her the benefit of the doubt. Here is how I’m surviving in the mid-Atlantic. I wish I had been doing all of… Continue reading five favorites for winter skin
Goodreads prompted me to set a reading goal for the year, so I did. Because internet prompts are basically peer pressure. So I thought I could maybe do 52 books, averaging a book a week. I am at three books finished so far, and Goodreads just informed me I am one book behind. Luckily, I… Continue reading recent reads + currently reading
I’m going to pretend to be a crafting blog for a sec. Much like times I pretend to be a food blogger or a fitness blogger or really any kind of blogger with a unifying theory of blogging, this is pretty much a total lark. At Thanksgiving time, my cousin Lauren was knitting cable knit… Continue reading i can cable knit!!
