sunday currently - sept 25 v.54

C U R R E N T L Y ...

READING: Keeping up with reading some blogs and I have read some pretty interesting posts. If you guys know of any good blogs, leave the link in the comment section and I will check them out

WRITING: This Sunday's edition of TSC 

MUSIC: Song(s) of the moment - Aint My Fault by Zara Larsson, Lush Life by Zara Larsson, Bad Boys by Zara Larsson and As You Are by Mike Posner

LISTENING: To The Mummy on TV

GUILTY PLEASURE: This week it's been chocolate covered almonds and birthday cake Oreos

THINKING: That since I received that phone call that didn't go my way, every thing seems to be pointing one direct way but for some reason, I can't seem to wrap my head around it. What is wrong with me??

NAIL COLOR: I think this week I am going to go with a light, mint green of some sort

DRINK: Orange pekoe tea

FOOD: Just had my veggie shake - yes, I drink my veggies since I don't eat all the necessary ones

SMELLING: Nothing 

HOPING: For a moment of REAL clarity

TV SHOW: Since Netflix added the latest seasons of Grey's and Law & Order, I am now going between The Good Wife, Law & Order and Grey's ... There is not enough time in the day!

WEARING: Sunday staple - pajamas!

LOVING: The fall weather!

WISH LIST: For something to happen or for me to see/read something that will make my decision that much easier to make

NEEDING: To stop being so scared and to make a decision and be okay with it

BLESSING: Everyone and everything that I have in my life

FEELING: Not like myself. I have started to take a migraine preventative since my migraines have been getting so bad, I have been spending days in bed. I'm not sure if it's the meds or just the fact that I cannot make a decision that has me not feeling like myself. Hell, it's probably a little bit of both. BUT, the plus side to these meds, they have an appetite suppressant so you can lose weight ... not complaining. 

CLICKING: Keyboard 

EXCITEMENT: For Thanksgiving dinner! Yes, our Canadian Thanksgiving is coming up and thats mean an amazing dinner!!

five on friday.

Here we are for another edition of FOF and I'm hoping you're joining the link up over with A Liz Adventures and finding some other great blogs!

Fall brings many things, as we all know. An amazing wardrobe, pumpkin flavoured everything, Halloween planning and of course, my favourite, the return of the football season. My boys are off to a great start, aka the New England Patriots. AND, they are off to a great start without Mr. Brady when everyone thought they wouldn't. So HA, take that! 

I finally received "that call" that I have been rambling on about for the last few weeks. Unfortunately, it did not go the way I wanted it to, which now leaves me in a position where I seem to be a lot of the time lately, of making yet another decision. I used to think that I had a small, tiny understanding behind the idea of how some things worked. After today, I don't think I do anymore. I must admit .. it is a little disheartening, but I won't let it get me down completely. 

Am I the only one who does NOT care AT ALL about Brad & Angelina divorcing? I'm sorry, but I don't ... 

 I saw this photo while browsing Pinterest (Pinterest for the win - again!) and it actually left me a bit speechless. I don't think I have ever come across a definition better than this and it really hit home. 

Johanna Basford is releasing her Christmas colouring book in October! Cannot wait! Oh my goodness. Yes, yes, okay ... I may have a slight problem!

50 best things.

Pinterest for the win - again! I absolutely LOVE these and some of these I need to start doing PRONTO!

so what wednesday [21]

This week, I'm saying SO WHAT if ... 

➡ I have been taking more me time than I wanted to. It's allowed, right?

➡ There's a box of pumpkin spice oatmeal sitting unopened on the table downstairs. 

➡ Season 5 of The Good Wife just threw a TOTAL curveball that I DID NOT see coming and left me with my jaw on the floor?! Well played ... well played ... 

➡ I still have NOT received "that" call. Over it .. well, maybe not fully over it. 

What are you saying SO WHAT to this week?

so what wednesday [20]

This week, I'm saying SO WHAT if ... 

➡  I am excited that the new Blair Witch movie comes out this Friday!

➡  I am still waiting for THAT call. It's been two weeks now & I'm now at the point where I just want to know.

➡  I may want to be Alicia Florrick for a day and have a slight, slight crush on Peter Florrick. Totally normal right? 

➡  I still have NO idea what I want to do. Does anyone?

➡  I have been enjoying my alone time lately. Sometimes it's just so nice to not have to answer to anyone or answer any questions and just do your own thing. 

➡  I am so excited to try and bake some apple chips! I was going to try right after this post but then realized you had to bake them for like 3 hours and it's like 8pm, so it will have to wait until tomorrow. I need a healthier alternative!

What are you saying SO WHAT to this week?

sunday currently - sept 11 v.53

C U R R E N T L Y ...

READING: The last few days, I have actually taken the time and read some blogs from people that I follow. Not that I don't usually do this, I just took a little extra time lately and I have read some pretty good stuff!

WRITING: This Sunday's edition of TSC & one of the coaches in my Fitness group challenged us to great a wall/board/notebook of inspiring words/quotes that we can look at each day or whenever we need to. I think I'm going to write something on each day in my agenda, so I always start the day with a positive thought. 

MUSIC: Song(s) of the moment - Here I Go Again by Audra Mae

LISTENING: To the sound of the keyboard

GUILTY PLEASURE: This week, surprisingly, I have been very good. Mind you, I haven't been 100% so I have kind of lost my appetite, therefore, not eating a lot, but haven't had a guilty pleasure this past week. Wow, think that's a first.

THINKING: That this phone call NEEDS to come through tomorrow. I HATE not knowing what is going on and what I am doing. I obviously want a positive outcome from this call, but I just want the call either way so I can stop guessing and starting planning. Is that too much to ask, I don't think so!

NAIL COLOR: After School Boy Blazer by Essie

DRINK: Water ... Usually I have a difficult time drinking just plain straight up water, but lately it's been the only thing I have been drinking

FOOD: Not much today due to a lack of appetite

SMELLING: Nothing 

HOPING: For THAT phone call with a positive outcome! Please OH PLEASE ... 

TV SHOW: Still working through The Good Wife & started Season 2 of Schitt's Creek

WEARING: Pajama pants and tee shirt. It's Sunday and I'm not feeling well .. it's allowed!

LOVING: That football has officially returned as of today!! 

WISH LIST: For that phone call ... REALLY need/want it to happen

NEEDING: Please see above ! 

BLESSING: Everyone and everything that I have in my life

FEELING: Like absolute crap! One week of the month I DESPISE being a female.

CLICKING: Keyboard 

EXCITEMENT: For Fall and everything that comes along with it!!

five on friday.

Join the link up over at A Liz Adventures for FOF!

TWO days ... yes, that's right, TWO days until the the return of NFL Football! This month just got a little better!

Is anyone else a picky eater and HATES eating veggies like me?! Well, if you are, I have your answer. These two products, Vegegreens and PhytoBerry from Progressive are two supplements that I HAVE to start my day with. The veggies that I do eat are not as nutritional as the ones I should eat, but don't, so I had to come up with a way to get those nutrients I was missing. Juicing veggies is great but it's so time consuming and SUCH a mess! Then I found this! It does come in different flavors but I have the Citrus flavor and let me tell you, it is the best tasting greens I have found yet. I mean, powdered veggies isn't going to taste like pizza but ... you get the point. Whenever I start to feel sluggish, I just add more and in a few days, I have all my energy back. It's amazing what these two can do! 

Last night I went to bed with such high hopes for today. I was going to get up nice and early, make myself a nice iced coffee and then start to clean out my room. Nope, didn't happen. I woke up a little later than I wanted to and still feeling exhausted. Then I started to look around my room and realized what a mess cleaning out my room can become and am I ready for that right now ... mmm, probably not. 


Does anyone else full heartedly believe in this saying? Ugh, why is this SO true?

And I leave you with these thoughts ...

If you join the link up, let me know so I can check your post out :)

goodbye august, hello september.

I came across this post yesterday on The Girl Who Loved To Write's blog and I thought it was a fantastic idea & since one of my goals is to post more, I thought I would try this out.

Goodbye, August.

Goodbye to hot, muggy and unbearable weather.

Goodbye to summer BBQ's and front porch weather. You really are two of my favorite things about summer.

Goodbye to being in a perpetual state of confusion.

Goodbye to cold, summer time drinks.

Hello, September.

Hello to crisp fall mornings.

Hello to beautiful changing scenery.

Hello to pumpkin flavored everything, and of course, the return of the PSL.

Hello to Halloween planning!

What are you saying Goodbye and Hello to this month?

dear september sarah. updated.

Dear September Sarah,

Here are the plans I have for you.

   1. I know you say this to yourself every month, but SERIOUSLY get back into your healthy lifestyle
       routine. September was a difficult month and I surely did not get back into my routine as I had hoped.

   2. Make decision and stick to it! I DID in fact make a decision, even though it was a very difficult one to make and it did upset a lot of people. 

   3. Stop being so scared of things - you know what I'm talking about. I would say I was successful with this, but not in the way I intended. There have been certain situations I have been in the last little while that normally I would run away from but I didn't. I stopped letting fear take a hold of me and influence my decisions. 

   4. Less soda & sugar and more water. I would have to say this one was 50/50

   5. Take more pictures. Unfortunately, this did not happen. 

   6. If you stay, look into 3 Day Refresh or Ultimate Reset Cleanse. In a way, I was successful with this because I know it is something I want to do 100%, just have to wait for the extra money. 

   7. Stop trying to make everyone else happy BUT yourself. This one goes hand in hand with #2 and I for once put what I wanted and what was going to make me happy before other people. Again, you tend to see who your true friends are when this happens. 

At the end of the month, I'll revisit these seven plans and see how I did with them. We'll then see what I have lined up for October.

Good luck September Sarah

sunday currently - sept 4 v.52

I know it's not officially Fall yet, but when the calendar goes from August to September, it's Fall to me .. anyone else? We didn't have internet last week which is why I was slacking on the blogging. They FINALLY fixed it yesterday! However, I was kind of liking the whole "back in the stone age" kind of feeling and even though it's fixed, I still haven't been my usual self living on my phone. 

C U R R E N T L Y ...

READING: I have tried so hard to get back into reading but it just hasn't happened. 

WRITING: This Sunday's edition of TSC 

MUSIC: Song(s) of the moment - That Girl by The Kungs 

LISTENING: To the breeze coming in through the open windows

GUILTY PLEASURE: Friday we went to the CNE as we do every year (family tradition) so I think this weeks guilty pleasure was the ChurroCone I had at the CNE - an ice cream cone made from a churro, soft serve vanilla ice cream and a ton of chocolate sauce ... Yup, just as good as it sounds!

THINKING: That there are a few things I don't understand - 1. Why people never follow through with what they say 
2. Why people feel the need to question every single thing you do 
3. Why can people just not leave me alone and let me do my own thing. It is MY life after all right? 

NAIL COLOR: I just threw on Shake Your $$ Maker by Essie for the weekend. I'm really not a fan of this color, but I can't stand unpainted nails

DRINK: Orange pekoe tea

FOOD: Fresh strawberries

SMELLING: Nothing 

HOPING: For THAT phone call! Fingers have never been more crossed!!

TV SHOW: Still working through The Good Wife, ugh, so good! AND just saw that Netflix added the latest seasons of Law & Order SVU and Schitt's Creek. NOW, they just need to add the last Grey's and we would be set. 

WEARING: Sweat pants and tee shirt

LOVING: That next weekend is the official return of the NFL regular season

WISH LIST: For that phone call ... REALLY need/want it to happen

NEEDING: Please see above ! 

BLESSING: Everyone and everything that I have in my life

FEELING: Like I need to get out of this month long rut I have been in. Ugh, it's horrible because I am not this type of person so whenever this happens, I hate not feeling like "me"

CLICKING: Keyboard 

EXCITEMENT: For Fall and everything that comes along with it!!
