We decided to go DC Comics this year with our Halloween costumes. Diesel is dressed as Clark Kent/Superman and I’m Harley Quinn. It was fun to play it up, put color in my hair and be a little adventurous with our costumes! See bottom of post for outfit deets.

I also wanted to talk about some of my thoughts on scary movies and other Halloween festivities too, so definitely keep reading.

To My Former Single Self

October 8, 2014

Has there ever been a stretch of time where you just feel worn down and emotionally beaten up by life situations?

Maybe things are just all going wrong, or you feel so insecure about yourself. Maybe you’re constantly comparing yourself to others, or feeling like “you’re the only one that feels/is this way.” Maybe you’re suddenly getting in arguments with people you love over really dumb things that don’t matter, or find yourself having a terrible attitude when there’s no real reason for it.

I’ve been encouraged to sew, paint and cook. Oh my! I learned how to cook–literally–from recipes on Pinterest. I don’t even use cookbooks. Continue Reading…
