Don't Stress Out - Just Shake It Off


I have a tendency to let things bother me more than they should and after seeing a link to Taylor Swift's new video for Shake It Off via Nose Gaze, I have been playing this song and watching this video whenever I need a reminder that things shouldn't be so hard and to just shake off the bad and keep going. I let so many things in my life stress me out and that needs to change. Ashley posted about not worrying or stressing out about what others think about your blog posts because they are yours and I think this should apply to so much in our lives, not just our blogs. I'm starting to figure this out - finally.

Shake If Off is such a peppy little song with a "sick beat" and the lyrics are perfect in reminding me to let things roll off my back. And the video is so fun to watch - filled with different styles of dance, clothes and people. She's made a great song and video here. I'll be buying her new CD - 1989 - soon. PS -I even chair dance at work when this song comes on - that's how much it cheers me up.

What helps you stress less or get into a better mood and let things goes?

Birthday Wishlist


I created a little mood board of birthday wishlist items. These are the types of things that I look forward to receiving for my birthday. 

1. ELVILDA throw pillow from Ikea for my new office space
2. The new Taylor Swift CD - 1989 (I'm kind of addicted to her new single SHAKE IT OFF)
3. Family necklace via LYTEJewellery (one of my friends from college owns this etsy shop)
4. Matryoshka Russian Nesting Doll Measuring Cups - so cute and I want them for my kitchen
5. Young House Love by the Petersiks - a fun DIY book

What's on your birthday wishlist?

Attention Please

Esme doesn't look too happy that Sasha is trying her best to climb over things to get as close as possible for attention.

This is what it is like to snuggle in bed with your laptop to try and get some work internet surfing/pinterest pinning/facebook stalking done. Hubby takes half the bed to play video games or watch Netflix and I take a tiny bit of the bed to work on my laptop and the kitties take the rest to smoosh themselves between us, on us or on our remotes/controllers/laptop keyboards. 

Oh, but we love them.

Ten Places Books Have Made Me Want To Visit



Savannah, Georgia, USA - to experience some Southern hospitality and charm as experienced while listening to the audio book SAVE THE DATE by MARY KAY ANDREWS.

Paris, France - I mean who doesn't want to go there? The city of lights and love. ANNA AND THE FRENCH KISS by STEPHANIE PERKINS brought me back to the streets of Paris and I'd love to go back someday and see the sights that Anna was a part of.

Prince Edward Island, Canada - I drove through PEI a few years ago, but I really wish I had stopped to see Green Gables and experience what Anne's life was like a la ANNE OF GREEN GABLES by L.M. MONTGOMERY (the museum there is supposed to be wonderful).


Tir Na Nog - THE IRON Fey SERIES make me want to visit with the fey, but this will probably never happen. A girl can dream though since I'd love to have friends like Puck, Ash and Meghan.

Hogwarts, UK - How could a list be complete without mention of the HARRY POTTER SERIES and Hogwarts. I've always wanted an owl to show up with a letter to tell me I'm going to wizarding school and to have the sorting hat tell me which house I belong in as I'm torn between Griffyndor and Hufflepuff.


Egypt!! - After reading NEFERTITI by MICHELLE MORAN it makes me want to visit the great pyramids to see history for my own eyes.

New Orleans, Louisiana (NOLA), USA - I am dying to visit NOLA to see Anne Rice's house and experience the French Quarter after having read and watched the movie for INTERVIEW WITH THE VAMPIRE by ANNE RICE.

ONLY SEVEN BUT THEY ARE PRETTY INTERESTING, DON'T YA THINK?
