Embracing love, overcoming loss and moving forward are the goals of My Pixie Blog. Created by a funny and thoughtful woman named Charlotte, this relationship blog dishes out advice that’s often as much about loving food as it is about loving men. Important factors like honesty, patience and realistic relationship goals are all explored in a unique and honest way.
Good morning, party peoples! Can you believe it’s almost APRIL!? I cannot. I have been shivering nonstop for days; I’m not sure what’s going on with this weather or if I’m picking up whatever Bryan had early this week (knocks wood) but fingers crossed it passes quickly. I need sunshine and margaritas and a beach, stat!
If you’re new here—welcome to My Pixie Blog! Each Friday, I link up with Beth and Lindsay from our Peaceful Posse Facebook group to share our list of gratitude. Let’s dive in, and I hope you have a very happy Passover and Easter, my sweet ones!
Having this post come up in my Facebook memories feed, about the time my parents tried to set me up at a Passover seder (HOLY EMBARRASSING, batman!)
Taking a trip down memory lane while walking through Hoboken last night…. Also, while it might not look like much, that steak house is where Bryan and I had our first date!
Dinner, laughs, and wine with my girl last night. The festivities almost didn’t happen because of NJ Transit, but I was so happy to see her and catch up
The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up. You’ll laugh, but this book really is life changing, and I love the little pearls of wisdom. It is THE BEST book to read if you’re planning a move because you’ll have an excuse to purge!
Hint of jalapeno flavored Tostitos (obsessed)
Getting back out there and house hunting. I saw a home the other day that I can’t stop thinking about. We’re going back tomorrow to visit and I’m keeping fingers crossed Bryan likes it as much as I do
Isofrut freeze-dried pineapple fruit pieces—I’ve been adding them to my granola and yogurt in the morning and they are so good (full review to come next week!)
I like to think I’m pretty easy to impress. Flowers. A delicious vegan meal. An hour with dogs. A walk in the park. Long conversations, old school video games, overnight stays with fuzzy bathrobes. Oh, you know… just listing things because–
I’m kind of maybe totally and irrationally freaking out about the fact that I am turning 39 in a week. HOW DID THAT HAPPEN?!
I’m not sure about this whole bullet journaling stuff, you guys. I was really into it for two days and then fell off the wagon. The jury is still out—is it supposed to feel like coloring? Because that’s what I feel like I’m doing and I’m not sure this is very productive or conducive to getting my life in order
I ran out of deodorant and Bryan purchases his in bulk, so… you do the math. Apologies if I smell like a dude on our next encounter
I rarely wash my hair. That in and of itself isn’t too weird for a curly girl like me (I do, however, condition every other day!), but there are times when the mane needs a good lathering and now is probably one of those times
I am too cheap to invest in manicures unless I have a special occasion to attend but I have a stash of nail polishes like I’m planning on opening up my own salon
If it’s on Bravo TV, I’ll watch it (but you probably already know that)
Sometimes I sneak bites of Bryan’s food when he’s not watching
I talk a good game like I’m excited about a new home for decorating purposes and not tripping over boxes, but really I just want to fill it with rescue dogs
Bryan and I saw a home the other day with a secret door and I really wanted to live in that house to take advantage of it (all of my childhood dreams would come true!)
Seriously, how cool is this thing??
The weather has more of an effect on my mood than I care to admit
What are some of your hump day confessions? Let me know in the comments, and hope everyone is having a great week!
PS: Please stop by tomorrow where I’ll be featuring a guest post on making floral crowns, so you can be festival ready this summer!
Lately it seems like I’m rushing, rushing, rushing and not getting anywhere fast. Know the feeling?
Two days ago, I frantically compiled all of my W2s, pay stubs, blog earnings, and tax filings to get pre-approved for a mortgage. Yes, I did this all already, but that was before I became a full time employee and I didn’t realize we’d have to resubmit all of the paperwork for 2018. We made an offer on a home yesterday morning (and then revisited said home yesterday afternoon), and now we wait.
Comfort zone ——————————————————> Charlotte
Recently, a blogger I had been emailing with asked if I’d be at an event I was helping to organize in upstate New York (home of my former university). I thought it would be a great idea to attend, meet the influencers as well as our client, work on some social posts, and do some sight-seeing in a place I called home for four years. I’d be able to visit all of my favorite food spots (burritos and bagels!). I’m hoping they are just as yummy as I remember them to be.
When I emailed my contact, she responded immediately and said the department store we are working with would like to put me up in a hotel and invite me to a dinner the night before the event with CEOs of a variety of big-name brands.
Comfort zone ——————————————————> Charlotte
I’m writing from snowy Rockland County where I’m dog and house sitting. I’m freaking out that the stove on the porch will start a fire (unlikely), I’m wondering if I’ll get snowed in here for days while my parents are gallivanting with Mickey Mouse and friends. Also unlikely. I can’t for the life of me figure out why my hair still smells like the vegan goulash I cooked days ago. Has the stink seeped into my skin or am I just draped in a bubble of anxiety?
All of the above.
What do you do when you step outside of your comfort zone? Comments always appreciated. Happy Snow Day, East Coasters, and hope everyone is enjoying spring so far (ha!). XO
