Siri is Not Southern

Who’s My Favorite Today!

Who's My Favorite Today?

The other day I was using Siri on my phone to find some information.  I was quite pleased with her prompt and accurate finds, so I felt the need to thank her.  I said, “muchos gracias Siri.”  But what Siri heard was “muchos grassy us.”  Oh my Southern accent!  Siri is seriously not a Southern girl!  We may break up soon.  No.  Not really.

Sorry Siri, but you are the least favorite today.

Daily tally:

Avery +8/-3, Brooke +9/-2, Kate +12/-5, Siri 0/-1

The Battle: Man v/s Man

Two Are Better Than One!

Two Are Better Than One

Good morning, friends!  If you’re reading this post, that means that you have work to do, and I’m not talking about that awesome 9 to 5 you’re heading to in a few short hours; I’m talking about your purpose — the reason that you exist! Every day is an opportunity to serve those around you by using your talents, abilities, and gifts. Are you taking advantage of these opportunities? Just think of your purpose as a mission. As always, I’m mission-minded and singing a song.

Rolling down the street praising Jesus, sippin’ on iced green tea

Laid-back, with my mind on my mission and my mission on my mind.

~Allusion to Snoop Dogg’s Gin & Juice

Sometimes a song will enter your head, and you have to switch up the lyrics a little (or in this case, a lot) to get you in the right space for doing what God…

Limbo. Where the Magic happens.

Flying Through Water!

Flying Through Water

Last week I wrote about losing my Zen and the support and understanding was insane. I thought about it a lot before writing it and of course after. The truth is, I’ve been living in limbo for the better part of 2 years. It’s been something I’ve struggled with. It’s something I’ve thought about A LOT and in a very negative way. And then the other night I had what I’ll call an epiphany.

So what do I mean by ‘Living in limbo?’

I mean that for me personally I wasn’t clear on my future. My wants, goals, value…and such. That’s the kind of limbo I’m talking about here.

Now my readers tend to be some of the most compassionate, kind and supportive people on WordPress so let me preference what I’m about to say….I am NOT beating myself up. I am NOT on a downward spiral. But to get…

The Tiniest Achievements

Ever heard the classic conversation starter ‘If you had a fire, what would you save?’ Imagine if your legitimate answer was ‘well I did have a fire – and I lost it.’ That’s right; you had a fire and now you’re also a mood killer. You’re probably not feeling so good about yourself right now huh?

The Great Bedroom Fire of 2012, as it is fondly remembered today five years on (queue a fire emoji followed by several coloured hearts, you know the drill) wasn’t the biggest of fires in the grand scheme of things. It flamed across the curtains, cracking the window in the process, burnt through a suitcase packed with clothes and a couple of boxes and along the wardrobe. The rest of my small student room was smoke damaged had to be redecorated and carpeted but the remaining objects and furniture were mostly salvageable. I had spent the first term of my…

Sometimes, you just have to close your eyes, count to ten, take a deep breath, remind yourself that you wouldn’t look good in prison stripes, and just smile at the dumbass and walk away.

This Video on Racial Discrimination Will Change Everything

One More Shot Please in the house!

ONE MORE SHOT PLEASE

Is there an ounce of hatred or irritation that you have for another race? What if I told you that is the country where your ancestors were from. It is so easy to finger-point distinct qualities that are not yours, but when you take a look at yourself in the mirror, you fail to address the fact that someone may feel the same way about you, or you may be just like them. There is no need to generalize an entire race. I am completely different from the Indian next to me, who has nothing in common with the Indian next to them. This video will change your world and the way you judge people based on their ethnicity. Open your heart and love one another.

Curry Pasta Salad

This is MSnubutterflies!

This actually started as a chicken salad. I would make this before heading off to the gym so I would have something quick to grab as I headed to work. I used it to make a lettuce wrap or ate it with celery sticks.

My daughter loves this. It’s one of her favorites. So I started making a pasta salad so there would be enough for everyone. It’s easy and it’s another meal I can make ahead and it’s ready when they’re ready.

It can easily still be used as the original chicken salad just add chicken instead of pasta and enjoy over a bed of lettuce or as I did in a lettuce wrap.

Of course you can always do both. Pasta and chicken if you like. I make it that way for the meat eaters in the house but for me it’s a vegetarian version.

For those of us on the pursuit to happiness, we have to come to the realisation that we have to move on from certain things in our past. If we let them linger, then those things can hold us back and if they can and we let them, they will. Whether that be an ex partner, an old friend, or a bad habit, something that has been around for a long enough period of time that we feel a pang of guilt at the thought of cutting ties.

The thing is, even as difficult as even the thought is, sometimes it is what needs to be done to free you  from being  held back from being truly happy. If you are honest with yourself, that aspect of your life, no matter what or who it is, they are making your life less than desirable. You might be so used to…
