TWO YEARS FIGHTING CANCER in selfies. Another rollercoaster of a year, this time with more hair. It was slightly easier than the year prior, thank goodness. There seem to be more good days, some realllllly crappy days, but mostly just ok days. I’ve gotten used to feeling super down during steroid weeks. I know when … Continue reading Cancerversary – 2 Years Fighting Leukemia
This may sound strange, but I got emotional buying shampoo for the first time in over two years. My hair is growing ya’ll. To quote the wise ladies of “Drama Queens” One Tree Hill podcast, “Hair matters”. It’s been a while since I posted a health update… sorry I’ve been living it up. I’m doing … Continue reading I Bought Shampoo!
Valentines Day is coming up and even though I don’t have a sweetheart to celebrate with, I do have a deep love for shopping. So if I were going to celebrate these are pieces I would consider buying. They’re not all items for just fancy pants dinner rezzies. There’s a little summin summin for different … Continue reading Valentines Fits
I hosted a Friends themed Friendsgiving / Birthday Party this weekend. I am a die-hard fan. I put Friends on before bed almost every night. I’ve seen each episode numerous times and would kick your butt at Friends trivia any day. And yes, I enjoy throwing my own birthday parties because 1. I love to … Continue reading FRIENDSgiving
Often times my response is “Great!” when people ask how I’m doing these days. That response is relative to how I felt last year but in comparison to my healthy life pre cancer it’s not so great. Does that make sense? I feel crappy 10/7 instead of 24/7 so to me that’s a win. Basically … Continue reading Fake it til you make it?
Sometimes I get stuck on a color. I buy everything in that color and I start seeing it everywhere. Earlier this year it was Pink. Then I moved on to Kumquat. I think the obsession has subsided but I wanted to share some of the moments I had with it this summer. (see above photos) … Continue reading Color of the Moment: Kumquat
I go back and forth on giving Malibu Rising by Taylor Jenkins Reid 4 stars or 5. It gave me all the feels but I’m pretty picky when giving a book a perfect score so I’d say it’s about a 4.25. It was, however, a perfect summer read. I especially enjoyed it because it was … Continue reading Malibu Rising
I hosted a dinner party last week on Friday the 13th. It was more Practical Magic and less Freddy vs Jason vibes. I always wish I had taken more photos after the fact but when we’re in the moment we are too busy enjoying ourselves to snap pics. I recently found out my mother has … Continue reading Friday the 13th Dinner Party
… jk about poi tho. I sometimes forget this was intended to be a travel/adventure blog since it turned into a bit of a cancer journal. Well, I finally have a trip to report on and have been putting it off, mostly because I’ve felt like crap lately. Let’s dive in… As soon as I … Continue reading Poke, Pareos and Poi; Maui Nō Ka ʻOi
Wanna know what being on chemo steroids is like? It’s 3am. You’re wired from insomnia, in excruciating back pain, full-on sweating. Then you… Read an entire novel. Take Pepcid so you don’t die of heartburn the second you eat something. Grind through a work project that would typically take 4 hours in approx. 55min. Create … Continue reading A Day in the Life – on Chemo Steroids
I just went on vacation to Hawaii and I brought 3 books with me. I was reading a book before my trip that I couldn’t get in to so I ditched it and bought fun summer books that are easy to read. First I read Beach Read by Emily Henry. It was super easy to … Continue reading Books I Read on Vacay
I’ve mentioned before that Tyrone Wells is my favorite singer/songwriter. I’ve been to tons of his live shows, his music always touches my heart and played a small part in helping me get out of a toxic relationship (read more here.) Today he released a new single called Who We Are and you should run, … Continue reading “Who We Are” – Tyrone Wells
Not too long ago I had to teach myself how to walk again after spending a month in a hospital bed. It’s been a long road to recovery and I still am unable to walk properly but I get stronger every day. So when I “hiked” down and up this small canyon I was elated. … Continue reading Palm Trees with My Main Squeeze
As of Tuesday, I have been fighting cancer for ONE WHOLE YEAR. I wanted to do something special as a thank you for the girls that have been my San Diego fam through this insane year. They’re the ones that made signs and waved at me from a bridge outside my hospital room when they weren’t … Continue reading A Picture-Perfect Pinch Me Picnic
I LOVE springtime. I also love that I’m feeling better these days. I had a couple days in bed feeling awful from my monthly steroids, but I talked to my doctor about it and we came up with a game plan to hopefully alleviate some of the horrible (and I mean horrible) side effects next month. … Continue reading Fresh Flower Field Frolics
