I’ve been feeling pretty good lately, aside from the occasional fatigue (which is just a part of my life now) I’d say things are moving and groovin over here in BB land. This is no new discovery for me, but I find that often the cure for whatever ails me is always green.
- Avocados have become my savior. Since announcing my current dietary changes I’ve been able to find a happy balance of intake. The only non plant based food I’m partaking in is fish because it has such powerful anti-inflammatory properties, but I only eat it here and there. Insert fats on fats on fats.
- Outdoor activities always fuel my soul, and I live in a state that’s surrounded by trees. Praise. Even the green algae growing on abandoned sheds makes me smile.
- My watch is green when I put it in workout mode. Coincidence? I think not. Spin class has been rocking my world lately. I keep the classes around two per week because my body ain’t what it used to be. Those endorphin’s though, can’t beat em’.
- Coffee starts out green, so it’s only fair I include my love for the bean. Coffee caused a lot of extra stress on my system for quite some time, so adding it back into my life has been immensely rewarding. I must moderate it, and my system will flare up if I overdo it, but overall it’s been OK. The boost it gives me is an added bonus. I busted out the ROK espresso maker after I shamefully tucked it away a couple years ago.
All I can say is wow. The flavor, ohh the flavor. The extraction with this maker is beyond words. The rich, full bodied flavor is so smooth it’s like drinking full fat coconut milk. I’m currently loving Starbucks Organic Yukon Blend. This multi region blend provides the Latin American beauty of cocoa and nuts, with a balance of Indonesian spice.
In other news, I took my old man kitty to the vet last week. What initially seemed like a clean bill of health resulted in blood work determining he has severe kidney disease. Despite this diagnosis I am in awe of his thirst for life. He has so much love to give still, and we won’t be going out without a fight. He will be 20 this year!
My other cat has been sneaking out at night to partake in nude modeling for picture books.
He’s rebelling because I’ve been giving my love to others.
Lastly, I was able to save a few photos from when I dressed up for Halloween as a girl. AKA when I put on some fancy digs and helped Gigi walk down the aisle. The below photo is my favorite, and all these girls are amazing. Four of us are bloggers, and became instant friends. Blogging has been one of the biggest blessings of my life because it has allowed me to meet so.many.amazing.people.

PS – glad to hear you are feeling better! 🙂
Thank you! I love it too. 🤗
I want that giant girafffffffe!! I meant to tell you this earlier, but never did, but all the pics from the wedding, you look like a movie star. Everyone looks wonderful, but esp you 🙂
I love your watch band. And that you are eating avocados- I. cannot. get. into. this. I don’t know what my problem is b/c they are sooooooo good for you. Fish is also excellent – what kind have you been trying? I love cod.
You do live in a gorg green paradise.
Oh girrrrll you so sweet. I had the same thoughts about you in that amazing red bridesmaid dress for your cousins wedding. ❤ I’m eating salmon and wait for it…SARDINES 😂 I don’t know why, but I love em.
SARDINES……. I am speechless. I’ll be sure to have some handy next time you visit. haha.
Blue is my favorite color.
Strong color choice!
Rachael @ Catch Me If You Can
green is my favorite color too!!! i cannot believe your cat is 20!!! holy crap that is awesome. this kidney disease will just use one of his remaining 9 lives because clearly you take such good care of him he still has all 9. that cat is going to live forever!
I love this outlook, so much yes. He is still kicking ass and taking names.
Okay, I know you mentioned it before that you get comments about you looking like Ashley Judd. But, you totally look like her there in that picture! Btw, not surprise your favorite color is green. I just did a write-up for a client about color psychology and learned about how colors reveal what personality type people fall under based on what colors they like. Green’s property is balance; it promotes restfulness and relates to nature, like the greenery out in nature that makes us feel peaceful and zen.
Ha! Ashley Judd and I are long lost siblings. Ohhh I LOVE that color analysis, thank you for sharing.
Sure, no prob! 😉
Green is indeed my favorite color too although you are rocking that blue for Gigi’s wedding. You ladies look stunning.
Avocado used to be that food I’d buy and then pitch because it went bad…until last Spring and now I can’t get enough. Weird? I think not.
I’m here for you on the kitty front. “Do not go gentle into that good night. Rage, rage against the dying of the light.” Gotta love some Dylan Thomas.
Oh man, that lyric gave me all the feels. Thank you my love, your words have already been helpful. This cat is a fighter! I’m literally eating a while avocado a day and I can’t get enough. So.Good.
Favorite color? Red. On Black. On a Specialized Venge.
HA! Love it, solid choice. 🙂
My kitties send their purrs, meows, and well-wishes to your kitty!
Thank you, he graciously receives it all! ❤
You are so lucky you still have him, at this age!
It’s so true, I’m amazed at his fight for life. He’s a poster child for kitties everywhere!
A senior citizen, and still gorgeous-looking!
Okay, here’s one place where we aren’t twins… I’m severely allergic to avocados! So you can have ALL of mine! 😂 But I’m a HUGE fan of straight black coffee, as of almost 1.5 years ago, and I don’t like drinking it any other way. (I stick to decaf though… I’m really sensitive to caffeine! 🙈) And I totally wish you’d share more pictures from the wedding! You look so pretty!! And that’s really neat that you were able to connect with bloggers and have it lead to such an amazing occasion… I think that’s one of my favorite parts of blogging: just meeting those people we meet online in real life. So fun and rewarding!
And I’m so sorry to hear about your cat’s kidneys! I hope your cat is in as little pain as possible and that you enjoy the rest of your time with him. Pets truly become one of our family members, especially when they grow as old as he is alongside you! ❤️
My only focus is ensuring he is comfortable. ❤ he’s the best ever.
I loveee meeting bloggers because we all just get each other! Ahhh gimmie all the avocadooo!
OMG. The Ashley Judd thing is spot on!
😂 I still don’t see it. Too funny.
Only the wedding picture
Rach @ This Italian Family
I’m so sorry about your kitty. 😦 What tough news to hear.
On a happier note, you ladies are all so beautiful!
Thank you, times two. ❤❤
What a beautiful wedding party you all look incredible!!!
Green is my colour too and I eat avocado almost every day!!!! So sorry to hear about your cat, 20 though what a trooper!!!!!! Xo
That wedding party was a blast! My kitty has put such a fight up. He’s amazing.
Many blessings to your kitty! I’m a purple girl myself, but I do enjoy a bit of green.
Thank you! ❤❤
Oh – I just had my 20+ year old cat pass away this year. It was the perfect time for him and he lived an awesome life. Wishing you all the best! Old cats are the best cats. 🙂
I feel his time coming, and I’ll know he lived a full life, but it will be hard to say goodbye. Just want to ensure he is comfortable the remainder of his days! Old cats just speak to my soul. 🤗
Green’s my favorite too! Love the watch…knowing that it goes green in workout mode would definitely be a selling point
I love this watch, for someone that isn’t usually into techie stuff I was sold with this haha!
My favorite color is brown currently. and Orange but like a burnt earthy orange not sports orange.
What are you doing to that giraffe?!?!?!
A good rustic brown is so great, prob my second favorite. The giraffe and I had a good time, don’t let him tell you otherwise.
He doesn’t look like the type to Kiss and tell. A true Gentleman.
I can sense a theme with this post! Now if the bridesmaid dresses were green…haha, no that blue is a lovely color!
If those dresses were a deep forest green…oh man. They were a very pretty blue though. 🙂
kathy @ more coffee, less talky
glad that you’re figuring out your diet and things are starting to work for you. i think that’s the hardest part – finding what foods work for you and getting used to a new routine.
Me too, it’s been a much longer process than most realize ha! I only started talking about it on here AFTER I began to get a footing. Time is the best.

LMFAOROFLBIAACMJLY – riddle me that! 😉
All kinds of green in this post! Love it. I am with you on getting outside, coffee, and eating plants. Love those sources of green 🙂
The wedding photo is stunning! Everyone looks so happy and beautiful!
I’m sorry to hear about your cat’s recent kidney disease diagnosis. 20-years-old is amazing and a long life for a cat!! I’m sure he has had such an amazing life spent with you. I hope Malcolm lives to be 20!
Sending 20 yr old vibes to Malcolm! HA!
Please do not squeeze the giraffe’s neck, it makes him irritable. 😉 Love that wedding pic! – Kat
Ahhhaha. They need a sign like that on him 😝
I love all the green! I’ve been trying to up my fat/especially avocado intake lately because winter has me feeling… I dunno. Dried out haha my skin is dry, my throat is dry. Minnesota winters are no joke.
I’m so sorry to read about your cat. What a beautiful beast. ❤ Best wishes for his health.
My fave color is black. Has been since the second grade. Though, green is a close second.
I have been suffering the dry feels too, it’s noooo bueno! I do love black, it’s basically all I wear. Ha!
Okay, this isn’t green….unless the peanuts get moldy….hahaha…..but look at this great news regarding PEANUT BUTTER! http://www.msn.com/en-us/health/nutrition/16-things-that-happen-to-your-body-when-you-eat-peanut-butter/ar-BBnrilV?ocid=spartandhp
Give me a spoon and a jar ASAP!
I just emailed you! This is what I sent!
I got talking to a coworker today whose fibromyalgia was caused by undiagnosed and untreated Lyme Disease. (She also had thyroid cancer and had to have her thyroid removed.) She goes to an MD in Utah (but she lives here in northern New Mexico) who has saved her life. He is an MD but also uses herbs and holistic methods. Lyme Disease is a major trigger for numerous autoimmune and other diseases! Read this article that she sent me by a doctor in NY.
Dad, has mom ever been bitten by a tick in upstate New York?! Have YOU been bitten by a tick since you have Celiac?!
