Howdy peeps, this has been a weird week for me. I’ve been so tired and I feel like I’ve done so much. But you know I can’t really recall everything that I’ve done this week. Hopefully, there’s someone out there that knows what I mean and I’m not the weird one of the bunch lol.

Tags and Q&As| Falling For Fall Tag

I guess you could call today a basic October weather kind of day. We’ve got 40-degree weather and I’m bundled up in a throw blanket. I thought today would be the appropriate day to the Falling For Fall Tag. Ashleigh was kind enough to tag me, you can read her post here:

Let’s get started.

What is your favorite fall scent?

I have to agree with Ashleigh on this one, anything Cinnamon scented. I don’t think Apple is … Read More

#WhatTheHealth| Bathtub 2 vs Me 0- Severe Ankle Sprain

I have this great talent of injuring myself in the weirdest ways. People always ask me, “Erika how did you do that?!” But the stories I have for my injuries are never that interesting, sometimes it’s just downright dumb. When my knee finally gave out, I was getting out of bed, nothing crazy. I will have to tell that story after this one because that one is quite complicated. Today, I’ll be telling the story of how my bathtub beat … Read More

#LifeInView| Get to Know Me Q&A

(PAE note: I know, I know, today is Friday, which means this should be a #FRIYAY review, but it’s not. Let’s just say I’ve run out of not so great products to talk about.

I used to be quite tender-headed and the whole hair braiding process was not enjoyable to me and I know it probably wasn’t fun for the person braiding my hair either. I was the type to tighten up my shoulders, tense up my neck, basically … Read More

Teen Ink| Personal Experience & Saying Goodbye

As I mentioned in my, #LifeInView| Where Would We Be Without Support? post, I used to be quite shy about showing what I was writing to my friends and family, but I had no problem publishing it online. I think I was I was worried about the personal opinion of what others that knew me, and I knew them. Online, I had the protection of anonymity, I didn’t have to worry about. The website that I turned to was TeenInk.comRead More

TasteofHOME| Kentucky Cream Pie

I admit that this week, wait… this is Sunday, so last week was extremely hard for me. I had to take a small break from writing and refocus. Monday, at physical therapy I found out the muscles in my shoulders and neck are inflamed. Because of this, I’ll be spending two hours at physical therapy instead of one so my shoulders and hip can both be worked.

Wednesday, I received a horrible email from one of the editors of a … Read More
