Just a girl with an odd mixture of tomboy and girly tendencies, which rarely shine together. My undying love for food and bacon are the reason I workout so much. I pretty much bleed Orange & Black and will go out of my way not to miss any games! I am a closet Yelper and I am contemplating creating a group for Target addicts!

I had no idea that nestled in Poly Canyon was a Serenity Swing. Hot, really steep parts, but glad we found it and got our swing on!

When talking about her career, Amy Poehler advises that you treat your career (and love life) with ambivalence. A concept I never thought about, but really felt moved by her idea. She supported this theory by also saying ‘treat it like a bad boyfriend’

You start on a dirt road with no shade and you wind your way to what seems to be someone’s home and loop around it. Again, this hike really only has two points where you have a beautiful view. Otherwise, there are bugs, you’re exposed to the elements, and it’s kinda just desolate. Oh and I cannot forget all the damn cow patties!

I hike for the variety in my workouts, but the views and scenery are usually picturesque.

Let me just say, when they say ‘wilderness’ they really mean it. The signs for mountain lions and rattlesnakes definitely had me a little shook. Mostly because there were multiple warning signs.

Tampons, Thanks Pandemic

Thanks to COVID-19, we can now use our HSA accounts to buy tampons (or pads if you’re a psycho)! Also, you can retroactively reimburse yourself for any purchases made since January 1, 2020. I am way too excited for this! Bless the saint who snuck this into the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act! #MusingsOfAGirlyTomboy

I love Pinterest for the recipes, but I can't stand how most food bloggers write novels before they share how to get it done.  This isn’t my recipe, but I’m re-sharing to make it easy for you. NO long, drawn-out life story before the recipe. So here it is. And AGAIN, let me reiterate that this is NOT my recipe, and please visit Sunup to Sundown for the original post!  #MusingsOfAGirlyTomboy #DiaryOfANonCook Fun Food, Good Food, Picnics, Getting Things Done, Tomboy, Palak Paneer, My Recipes, Bacon, Food Ideas

The world decided to send us all a chill pill…  What I hope to see through all of this is a higher level of kindness, compassion, and understanding. It will take time to get there, but as we become more uncertain and stressed, we learn more about ourselves and how we can adapt to change and manage our feelings and emotions.  #MusingsOfAGirlyTomboy Long Layered Haircuts, Chill Pill, Feelings And Emotions, Tomboy, Compassion, Diy Furniture, Repurposed, Girly, Change

Courage in Action

I have never fought so hard for a job. However, with this experience, I had one mindset that completely helped, what will be meant for you. Even if it doesn’t feel like it at the moment, it will be the path you are destined for. With this mindset, I lived my truth and saw it play out before me.
