"Maybe I just wouldn't know what to do with my strength anyway..."

I am watching my guilty pleasure, the soap opera One Life to Live and they are doing a horrible musical episode and almost all of them cannot sing. It is bad but it's so hilarious I can't stop watching. OH.MAN.

Okay so yesterday we made vegan Moroccan Couscous with Saffron! Pretty tasty my friends. It's from The Kind Diet by Alicia Silverstone. I am doing well on day 4 I must say. Only one milk craving thus far...but it was hard to resist! I did it though :D

Back to the's so easy to make and so delicious! Definitely check it are the pics!

Here is me puppy sitting for Kari's Baily Bug & BC. We were all very sleepy whilst Mesa was dock diving so we napped, then a long walk, then we read The Kind Diet. It was a good morning/afternoon. :)

Tonight we had Radicchio Pizza with Truffle Oil. It was so tasty! Tomorrow I think we are going to make Pecan Crusted Seitan with Rustic Pasta. Or 'Chorizo' Tacos. Either way it should be pretty tasty! :)

First day at the job was pretty easy, loads of filing, but I'll take it over the poopy feelings from the other place. So yay to the new job!!!

Hope all is going well with y'all too! Have a great day everybody!

Oh and P.S. my gbf Ben got engaged to his boyfriend of almost 4 years! SO happy for them! Such exciting news :D

We Interrupt Your Regularly Scheduled Program To Bring You...


I. got. a. new. job.

Let that soak in...I'll give you a minute...I GOT A NEW JOB!!!!! YAY!!!!!!!

So I said goodbye to those harassing jerks and hello to people who "are excited I'll be joining them" and think I'll be "a major asset" to their company. And by company I mean restaurants. I am the Office Manager for 6 LA restaurants. So basically what I am doing at my one job for the bars I now will be doing for some restaurants. Hello to minimal training!

And the best part? Part time, they are cool with my acting, they are paying me well, they'll allow me to bring my dog to work (when I rescue one), and I get weekends to MYSELF! I haven't had a weekend to do whatever I've wanted to do since 6th grade. SIXTH GRADE! Amazing right?! This leaves SO much more time for auditions, crafting, visiting the farmers markets in my area, writing my comedy movie about my horrible wedding experience last October, walking the pups a block over, etc.

I just feel like a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders. So much less stress and anxiety. YAY!

Now for some sad news. I just found out my mom's dad had a stroke and isn't doing well. Now I haven't had a relationship with her parents since I was about 7 or 8 but I have been wanting to reconnect with them recently to move past all this "bad blood" from the past. I'm 25 now and just felt it was time. I would like to know them before they leave this world. And today was very scary. I sort of want to fly back to MI from Cali to try to "fix" things as soon as possible just in case. I think I may actually call them tomorrow. P.S. I haven't called my grandparents since I was 6 or so. It just seems so crazy and sort of strange that the minute I want to reconnect it could be taken away. Hopefully it will all work out for the best.

Back to more positive news. I have been trying out a vegan diet these past few days. Partly to do a cleanse for my body of all the negative stuff I have been carrying around from this job now that I have my new one (YAY again). And partly to give vegan a fair go. I have always said I could NEVER live without dairy and I want to see if I can and how this way of living and eating makes me feel. If I like it I just might stick to it for good. So far, it's FANTASTIC! I am really surprised at how much I am really liking it and the food I'm eating. :) So hip-hip-hooray for healthy living! We'll see where I am at as this journey continues...

That's all for now. I am going to post again soon, hopefully tomorrow but with 3 jobs this week we'll see. I cannot wait for this week to be done and to be just working the 2 jobs I am excited to be at and slough off the negative job, energy it brings, stress, etc. It'll just feel amazing, I know it. :)

Hope you all had very lovely weekends!
All my x's and o's!
